Our absolutely perfect wedding day started a year before it actually happened. When we toured the venue, the owner was super friendly and welcoming. We knew right away it was the place for us. We also worked with Cassidy and Lindsey to help us coordinate on the day-of. The decorations were beautiful and even better than I could have imagined. During the week leading up to our wedding, we kept getting asked how we were doing and if we were super stressed, and we weren't at all! Everyone at the venue takes care of the set up and tear down, and it made it super easy for us to relax and enjoy the whole experience. If I could give this venue a 12 star review (or more!) I would. I could go on and on, but at the end of the day when your coordinator and other venue workers come out on the dance floor and have as much fun as your family and friends are, you know you're probably in the right place. On the day of the wedding, things did go quickly, but not once did I feel stressed or rushed in a bad way. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone and I am so thankful we were able to have our wedding here!

Wow, where do I begin. You will not regret having your wedding or event at The Barn at Fairview Acres. From the great staff, to the amenities, to the affordability, to the location, everything on our wedding day was perfect.For starters, it's easy to get a hold of the barn staff and it's easy to start planning an event. We contacted Cristy Potts and immediately she got back to us and set up a meeting. She answered all our questions, gave us a tour of her venue, reassured us that we would be taken care of and worked with us on payments, planning, etc. We were always a priority and I don't know how they did it but we always felt like we were the only people they were dealing with, which is not the case, they are busy folks, but Cristy and her staff never once made us feel like we were a bother.Second, the barn has an incredible list of recommended vendors (we got our fantastic caterer, florist and baker via the barn's recommendations). This is the type of place where everyone knows everyone and they will take care of you and that's exactly what happened. I felt so special and loved throughout the entire journey.Third, the list of amenities and the venue itself is enough to book it alone. We brought some decorations, but the barn provided the necessary, big ticket items like tables, chairs, a bar, table cloths and runners, fake candles, stands, cups, there were yard games, arches, back drops, signs, easels, I mean the list can go on! We got to stay in the Grain Bin and it was gorgeous and also a great place to "escape" from the crowd. Additionally, the venue is just gorgeous. There's different spots on and around the location where you can take pictures and get the best lighting. Inside the barn is bright and welcoming. Everything is clean and spotless, the bathrooms are easily accessible with plenty of space, there's a special spot just for the bride to get ready, you couldn't ask for a better place.Fourth, the cost. Given everything that the venue provides, it made it the most affordable, cost-effective venue on our list and it's exactly why we picked it. The venue met all our criteria, we got to have the ceremony and reception there, we got to pick our own timeline, we got to stay there overnight, they provided drinks and booze (for extra, which was still cheaper than any other place we looked at), everything was like God sent. As I mentioned previously, we were also able to pay overtime. That made things easier for us and our bank accounts.Finally, the staff was amazing. They were kind, thoughtful, understanding and above all patient. Cassidy was my planner and she made every moment spent with her one to remember. She worked with me before the big day to make sure my vision came true and she reminded me that everything was going to be OK. Lindsey, another planner at the venue that I got to work with the day of alongside Cassidy, also took care of everything that day and gave me stickers to help remind me that I am powerful, strong and beautiful. Those two, Cristy, and the other members on their staff from the folks who helped bus tables and cleaned off my 100 china plates to the bartenders who put up with my drunk uncles, were the reason the day went by smoothly. I am forever grateful.You will be in good hands if you book with the barn. I promise you that. Thank you for reading my long post, but I hope it helps in your decision making process!
Where do I begin?!? Honestly wish I could give this place more stars. This venue is on an entirely different level when it comes to experience and professionalism. This place feels like home. You’ll leave this place excited for the next time you get to go there. The owners Cristy and Dan are some of the most down-to-earth, genuine people you’ll meet. I felt like I became friends with them instantly.Their care for the guest, AND VENDORS, experience is incredible. As a wedding videographer I’ve never been treated with such care.The overall thought that went into this venue is like you’ve never seen before. They don’t skip any aspect of the place. From the grass edging, to the ceiling, and corn near the road to create an privacy wall. There isn’t a bad looking area there.If you’re contemplating booking this venue, just do it, I promise you won’t regret it!

The owners and staff know how to plan and throw a wedding. Best experience we could have had for our son's wedding. The property is beautiful and well kept. The staff were fun, professional, flexible and felt like old friends. It was the most amazing wedding experience.

So many good things to say about this venue. We photographed a wedding here in 2021 and loved it. First, the venue owners were present the entire day and helped us out a lot. They drove the couple around in their jeep to multiple locations both on and off of the property. The venue sits on a large piece of land with lots of different fields, wooded areas, ponds, and rolling hills. We were able to capture beautiful sunset pictures by the bond as the owner drove us there per our request.The buildings are very unique! The "man cave" is an old corn silo that they renovated to have two levels with a kitchen, bathroom, and fun amenities. The guys enjoyed playing pool, watching TV, and dancing to their own music in their own spot before the ceremony took place.The ceremony was on the back lawn and it was beautiful. An open field in the background as far as you could see. Cocktail hour took place on the patio area and inside the main barn building before the reception took place. The barn itself was white with lots of windows and high ceilings.One last detail that I thought was fun was that the venue planted a rose bush (if I remember correctly) around the barn for each couple that gets married there and puts a cute plaque with their names on it next to the bush. A fun way to honor those couples and their stories!Would work here again in a heartbeat. A dream.

I was here for my son's wedding 8/28/21. I can't say enough about how amazing this venue is. The staff are beyond accommodating! Some of the best service I have experienced. They never seemed to get tired of making sure everyone was ok. The venue is beautiful! The bridal party suite was amazing. I want to publicly thank them for all they did for my son and his wife. I would definitely recommend this venue to any and everyone!

This place was absolutely breathtaking! You can tell that they take pride in their venue by keeping it pristine inside and outside. The staff was beyond courteous (with a smile I must add!) from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. They were also aware of the atmosphere and their guests at all times. They bussed our dishes when we were done, offered to get us beverages, and even provided us with games to play all while being at our table. Plus, I know they took very good care of the bride & groom and made sure they had the best “We Do, Re-Do” Day ever with more loved ones. I would highly recommend them for any lovebirds out there wanting well taken care of on their big day with a beautiful venue and outstanding staff. ❤️

We can not say enough amazing things about this venue! We started our wedding weekend at The Barn on a Thursday and from the moment we pulled up we were welcomed with open arms! The Barn, Bin and Grounds are beyond gorgeous with so many wonderful amenities! Everyone on staff was super nice, helpful and attentive to not only us but also every one of our guests! Dan, Cristy and Lindsay were absolutely amazing throughout our whole wedding planning process, their attention to detail is incredible! I was NOT stressed one second the whole time we were there, which was AMAZING! We felt right at home and could not imagine our wedding weekend anywhere else! We would recommend The Barn at Fairview Acres a million times!!!


Your rental includes the use of a 14-passenger courtesy van (aka shuttle). This sweet ride is great at taking care of the wedding party and immediate family but it is literally a struggle bus when it comes to transporting your entire guest list. Not every event needs more assistance with guest transportation. Please inquire about more services on your tour or with our certified wedding planners.

Multiple transportation companies serve The Barn. Services include full-sized charter coaches, privately owned busses, smaller luxury party busses and limo services. The Barn also has on-site vehicles to help get the bridal party out for photos on the farm. Please inquire about the perfect services for and your guests.


1. Our Barn has 20 tons of airflow and filtration continuously running during and after an event to flush anything out that shouldn’t be there. In combination with our 32-foot ceiling height, you are in an open environment. 

2. All universally touched surfaces are disinfected every hour. 

3. Hand sanitizer can be found all over our venue. All kinds of lovely scents too because, well, why not?

4. Our bartenders handle drinks by the base of the cup, can or bottle when serving our guests. We do not touch what your mouth touches with our bare hands. 

5. We have extra masks on hand in case someone begins to feel unwell while on our grounds and would like to wear one or for any person who prefers to wear one.

6. We put approximately 6 feet between tables inside our barn to create comfort for each guest so that you do not feel like you are sitting on the lap of the person behind you. 

7. We add more seating than necessary to provide the option of distancing or spreading out for those who choose or prefer to do so. 

8. Our venue was designed with so much room to breathe outside!!! Our west porch can seat 30 at 3 tables where fresh air abounds! Not to mention, when the weather is on our side, we can have tables all over the grass courtyard to the concrete courtyard. Tents are welcome if you want to expand seating with a covered option. We can suggest a “Tentist” in the area if you need assistance! (I don’t think “Tentist” is a word, but you get what I am saying.)

9. Those with an underlying illness that visit our little piece of Heaven may be seated outside, if preferred, and will absolutely be cared for by our team. We will get your meal, drinks from the bar, and shelter you from any uncomfortable temperatures. We will do all we possibly can to make sure those that risk being there for you feel valued, protected, and spoiled!

10. All healthy guests are welcome. We all know when we are not 100%. If you are feeling off or this gathering makes you nervous, simply sit this one out. Send your love filled “Regrets” knowing you are doing what you feel is best in your circumstance.  The people that love you and invited you will appreciate your thoughtfulness and completely understand your concern. 

11. Our bottom line is that we customize your event as much as possible to make your time here amazing for both you and your guests.
