Hello, I'm Dan Kleinhans.  My wife Katie and I started our adventure together in 2018 after nearly a lifetime of friendship.  After I proposed in 2019 neither of us really knew what we wanted our wedding to look like, but we knew we wanted something unique.  We first talked about the idea of using my Dad's barn as a joke, but the idea kept coming back up in our conversations when we couldn't find a venue that had everything that we were looking for. Once we started talking to my Dad about the possibility of purchasing the property we were sold on the idea. 


Unfortunately the barn was in rough shape and looking back I still wonder if we were a little crazy. But we had a vision and considering Katie cried the first time she used a saw, I knew we had our work cut out for us.  After replacing beams, flooring, patching siding and roof, accumulating chairs, building tables and a hundred other things, we brought our vision to life.  What we discovered along the way is that we loved the whole process.  We loved working together to bring our vision to life, we look forward to doing the same for you!

While we have owned the property for a couple years now, that is definitely not where the history starts. Let's go back in time, shall we?

Originally built in the 1850's, the barn and the land surrounding it has been through many changes and has changed hands many times throughout the years. The barn has been home to cows, draft horses, pigs, and the occasional barn cat or dog and has stood the test of time, only changing slightly throughout time to accommodate the various livestock and families living here at the time. 

The property has changed hands but all of us have loved upgrading and making the space our own. After our own wedding in 2021 and all of the initial renovations we had to undertake, we decided to add a rather large deck onto the front of the barn to add more space and that created a wonderful place to take a break or look out over the open fields. We also added the bridal suite for our brides to have a relaxing and beautiful space to get ready in. 

That brings us to 2023, which brought even more changes. After adding a beautiful ceremony site overlooking and surrounded by open fields, we added a permanent pergola and arch. Driveways, bathrooms, gravel-work and a complete re-vamp of our full-service bar completed the picture to ensure that every detail of your weekend will go smoothly. We are dedicated to ensuring your day is as unique as you are as a couple.
