Beautiful Barn! Our Venue Trip

May 4th, 2012 by     


We just took a trip to visit our number one venue! We are pretty sure this place has everything we want as far as holding a ceremony and reception, as well as accommodating our guests!

We met with the woman who was to show us around, and we followed her to the barn and farmhouse in a remote location. This is a huge plus for us, as we hope to have an outdoor wedding, we know that we will remain mostly undisturbed. We are driving down a small country road, and looking up, at the top of the hill is this adorable farmhouse and barn.

I took a bunch of pictures of the exterior, but not being an awesome photographer, here are just a few.

She then took us inside the farmhouse. It. Was. Amazing. The farmhouse has been fully restored; it is fully furnished and very antique looking. It is definitely a getaway spot for a large group. It’s cozy, yet HUGE inside. The house is a great place to host the rehearsal dinner! It has plenty of seating and a big enough kitchen to cook tons of food. And, of course, I found the perfect spot for some great dress photographs to be taken!

And now, the pièce de résistance, the barn:

It’s probably everything I’ve hoped for in a barn. Big enough for what we need, but intimate as well. Both doors on either end open, and one reveals the rolling hills in the back. It’s rustic but also well kept. It even comes with lights wrapped around the poles!

After taking in everything, the venue is really everything I’d hoped for. Of course, there are a few “cons” thrown into everything. But as with most things in life, nothing is perfect. Right now the price might be the biggest thing we have to contend with. I am really excited about this place! It looks wonderful and if the price is right, this will be the place where I marry my sweetie!
