Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Nestled at the heart of a 115-acre preserve, every aspect of this lovely venue takes advantage of its connection to nature—say "I do" in a pasture overlooking open grasslands, or in a shaded forest clearing as your guests look on from handmade log benches.
  • Heron Hall is perfect for festive indoor/outdoor receptions. Built from the farm's original warehouse and grain silo, it's outfitted with oversized glass roll-up doors, lofted ceilings, and a covered arbor.
  • For the gals, there's Aerie House: a refined, French Provincial-inspired guest house with a full kitchen, veranda, and posh dressing suite. And for the guys? The Roost, a ranch-style retreat with a rustic fireplace, a private back deck, and a communal area with a big screen television, bar, poker table, and ping-pong table.
