  • How could you not fall in love with this beautiful barn.

    "This place is AMAZING !! My husband and I just got married here on September 16th we have been working with green acres for over 2 years they have been amazing through it all. Anything you need they will try to make it happen and work with you Olivia always had answers to my questions and Alyssa we worked with through catering who was very helpful when it came to our busy schedules she always made time for us no matter what. Once you see this place lit up at night how could you not fall in love with this beautiful barn. The whole staff was very helpful the day of the wedding and made the day flawless. For brides that want a wedding where you don't have to worry about 500 million details this is the place. Yes we still had some decore we brought in but the place has so much on its own you only need a little bit which makes life easy plus you have amazing staff to help you throughout the day! Even though the wedding is over I still see myself stopping by just to see the lovely girls including sunny and one of my favorite yellow labs Daisy."
