About Us

We are the owners of Summer Breeze, Mark and Tammy Lash from St. Elmo, IL. We transformed an old abandoned barn into a dream event venue. Mark and his construction crew Lash Construction, have done all of the updates on our facility to make it what it is today. Construction began on the barn in 2013. Tammy is an experienced event planner, hostess and designer. She started decorating high school musical set designs, homecoming dances, and to this day still host the annual Browntown Prom for the kids at the venue...a labor of love of working with the youth.  She also played a role in hosting high school after game dances at the school.  Her love of design continues with her flipping homes and her cabinet business.  Design and hostessing comes second nature to her and she loves making guest feel welcome!  She will work with you every step of the way to make sure your event is what you've been dreaming of! Mark is in the background of the venue doing what he loves most...mowing!  You might see him helping set up chairs or coming in late night to help close up shop.  A great team for sure!  Marks hobbies are mowing and mowing.  He owns Lash Construction Inc.  Tammys hobbies are cleaning house, design work for clients on her other business Renovating Spaces.  They are the parents of Ryan Lash (wife Lindsay,children: Harrison,Maybre,Madison) and daughter Mindy Roe (husband Jason, children: Sawyer and Abram.
