WEDDINGS
THE VENUE AT WHISTLEJACKET FARM

We understand that your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and we are dedicated to making it unforgettable.

 

Our venue offers a unique setting for your special day! Situated on a working horse and cattle farm, you can choose an outdoor ceremony in front of the lake or in our "treehouse" pasture with the barns behind.

 

Or utilize our covered space around the farmhouse for the ceremony or reception. Tents and other amenities can be added to make your day all that you envision!

 

We look forward to helping you create the wedding of your dreams!
