“We are an all-inclusive venue,” Stark said, noting that they provide DJs, cake, catering, décor and other aspects.

“It’s all done in-house and it is stress-free,” she said of what they offer customers, hoping to cover all areas of preparation.

With a staff of eight, the 55-acre farm, and its rustic atmosphere, includes two dedicated ceremony areas and a farmhouse with a bride’s suite and groom’s suite among its options.

And with multiple options, they can ensure that those who want an outdoor wedding are prepared for rain or any other issues that may arise.

“There is tons of light,” Stark said of the atmosphere and notes that they have their own photographer, Sue Ann Boggs.

“And I work exclusively for her,” Boggs, who specializes in weddings, said.

The venue offers several packages, with differing options, to accommodate crowds of all sizes.

Stark, who works at the venue full-time, said they are closed in January and February, but when things reopen in March, they are expecting a busy year.

“We’re already limited for 2022,” she said. “And we’re doing booking for 2023 and 2024.”
