    We couldn’t have been happier with this venue. It was honestly my dream come true! Breanna was an absolute delight to work. My guests can still not stop talking about how gorgeous the barn and surroundings are. If you are looking for a romantic and eclectic place, you should definitely check this place out. The location is perfect – not too far away from the cities. The decorations and lighting create a warm and inviting mood. The food was excellent and the staff were all fun and professional. We had the maximum amount of people attend, at 210, and it was still comfortable. We chose to have the ceremony in the grove outside and everyone fit just perfectly. This place is a must see!!! Thank you to everyone at Green Acres for a magical wedding!

    Amazing and Magical Place

    My husband and I fell in love with this place the moment we walked in the door. Brenna and her team were great to work with and they made my special day seamless. This place is a must see before you pick your venue. There is so much to see! Our guests just raved about how cool and unique Green Acres is. Everyone has a great time, especially me and my husband. We joke about renewing our vows so we can have an excuse to rent out Green Acres again.

    Couldn't Be M0re Pleased

    Gosh–we just couldn’t be more pleased with Green Acres and the Sterling Catering crew. We were just married there a week ago and have have not only heard only good things from our guests, but we ourselves are so happy with our big day. From the planning side of things with the lovely Breanna to the catering side of things with Andrea (and day of activity with Miss Rhonda!), you all took the anxiety out of our wedding. The flip in the upper loft from ceremony to reception was flawless, and you were all able to answer our questions and execute quickly. We can’t thank you enough for all you did for us! Don’t pass up this venue if you are on the fence–you won’t be disappointed! Bride.

    After our first visit to Green Acres barn, we knew without a doubt this was the place we wanted to get married! There are so many unique decorations and the chandeliers are absolutely beautiful! We received many compliments from our guests on the unique features of this venue and I can’t say enough about how beautiful it really is!

    Prior to the wedding day, the event managers were wonderful to work with. They were helpful, and quick to respond to questions or changes. We felt confident that all the details would be carried out the day of the wedding.

    The catering staff did a wonderful job setting up the reception area and food, and overall everything went perfectly the day of our wedding! I would definetely recommend Green Acres to anyone looking for a beautiful wedding venue! Bride: Rachael

    We absolutely loved our decision to host our wedding and reception at Green Acres. The barn is absolutely stunning and the gorgeous decorations make for a beautiful backdrop in pictures. The woodsy and open grass areas outside of the barn are also incredible for pictures!

    The workers are always eager to help with smiles and accommodate to many wants and needs one might ask for. They are always willing to work with you and provide quick responses.

    We are so happy that we choose Green Acres to celebrate our special evening and looking back at the pictures, it couldn’t have been more beautiful and special. Everything you could need is in one location which makes it incredibly easy for you and your guests! Bride: Andrea

    Great Experience!

    We were married at Green Acres on May 2. It was a top ten weather day but that was nothing compared with this lovely place! Breanna, Andrea and Rhonda know there stuff and I could tell they’d done many events because of how calm, efficient and organized they each were. Timely communication is important to me and they were really proactive. The barn was fun to explore (inside and out), Sterling C…
