We salute the couple who wants to plan their own wedding.  After all, it’s your wedding, you know what you want.  Some couples lend more towards their own planning than others, for those who do we offer “venue only” rentals with all the accommodations you need to have success in planning and execution.   We have wedding settings, room for up to 50 under cover with seating, beautiful expansive views, dressing area with restrooms and untold history and culture in every area of the farm.

These are just a few tips that we tell brides when they are starting to consider their wedding.

#1 Budget.
Whatever your budget is, plan with a budget amount. Consider vendors, venue, details and decorations, invitations and travel.  What about the honeymoon?

#2 What do your married friends say they would do again at their wedding?  Conduct some interviews from those who have done it to see what you might want to concentrate on and what you might want to forget.

#3 Don’t be afraid to let go of a tradition that doesn’t suit you. Do it differently!

#4 Select a theme! We love to help couples work with a theme.  Western themes are popular, Garden and Woodsy themes are also popular and we are a perfect setting for such an idea.


We welcome you to tour our venue.  Set up a venue tour at our website,
