  • Linda is amazing to work with! She is so responsive and wants your day to be perfect. All the requirements they have are there for a reason and she let me come look at the barn as many times as I wanted to. The spaces to get ready were gorgeous and functional. My only “complaint” is that the flip and cleanup was a bit rushed, but that is what they are known for (and my centerpieces were a bit more complicated than normal so that’s really on me), and they had a wedding the following day so I understand wanting everything to be clean and perfect for their next clients. Highly recommend this venue! It’s gorgeous and the newly painted cream walls are a great new addition.
