Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Set on 125 acres of lush farmland and surrounded by the dense, pristine wooded expanse of Yellowwood State Forest, this gorgeous venue features elegantly styled gathering spaces that offer loads of flexibility and privacy.
  • The main hall boasts chic, modern farmhouse-inspired design that impresses with a bright, whitewashed interior, hearty wood beams, a vaulted ceiling hung with oversized globe candelabra chandeliers, polished concrete flooring, and tons of natural light.
  • In the ceremony pavilion, you’ll find dramatic stone columns, a cathedral ceiling with exposed beams, and custom guest benches. It’s a fantastic spot for an outdoor ceremony (without having to worry about the weather!)
