Weddings at Summer Breeze

As soon as you enter our 1875 historical barn, your eyes are drawn to the grand, crystal chandelier that drapes elegantly from the original cathedral barn ceiling.  The barn has been beautifully restored to feature its vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, and original woodwork with a blend of rustic and elegant lighting.  The sophisticated twist on this rustic-vintage look, doesn't end there.  We have kept the barn original on the inside while adding the convenience of heating and air conditioning for the comfort of your guest. We also serve you by having fully-staffed and hostessed venue and bar. The venue also features public restrooms . With the barn's ability to transform its look from elegant-vintage to a rustic celebration and with a staff to help coordinate, let Summer Breeze make your dream event a reality! 

Several distinct areas are available at our venue to say your "I do's".  Choose  just outside the north double doors of the barn with the barn structure as your perfect backdrop or step out on our south lawn of the barn and enjoy the old farmhouse concrete sink water fall that flows in a circle symbolic of the wedding. Water flows around you as stand under the arch covered in flowering county flowers.  Of course you may want to stand inside the barn under the chandelier for that romantic feel! You can also enjoy the canopy of the old tree  in the evening with lights at the historical farm house and then enjoy the barn for your reception area. (See pictures)
