The barn and location is a family-owned and operated business. Founders Lisa and Verlyn Fast discovered a passion for event preparation when they hosted their daughter’s wedding in 2016. Soon after, Lisa found herself planning a wedding hosted in a local barn. Taking this experience, she and Verlyn transformed Gathering Acres into a premier wedding event center.
