You may plan a barn reception with all of the amenities or choose to be outside under the stars, the moon and our lighted grandfather oaks canopy. We especially love the lighted hanging chandeliers in our vintage garden reception area. Our barn is climate controlled and can seat as many as 299 guests indoors.
