Canopy Creek Farm was even better than I imagined! The staff were so helpful answering questions both on the wedding day and throughout the planning process. They made me feel like they truly cared how my day went. They were available when needed, but remained professionally in the background the rest of the time. The venue itself is very versatile. I didn't have to worry about elderly guests having access to anything, and didn't have to have the additional cost of a dance floor. It is beautiful both inside and out and will HIGHLY recommend the venue to anyone in the future:)
Our wedding is in a few weeks but we booked with Canopy Creek before it was finished (last September) and today I had the opportunity to see the finished product (decorated for a wedding to boot!) It is gorgeous. It is the perfect venue for couples who are looking for the country chic vibe but also great for a more traditional reception like ours. The venue is classic and timeless, even though it is brand new! So glad we found the perfect place :)
Our wedding was a dream come true at Canopy Creek Farm! The Chance Family was a pleasure to work with. The venue itself was so beautiful we had minimal decorating to do. Our guest were so impressed with everything. I loved that our guests were able to spend time both indoors and outdoors. I would recommended this venue to anyone! So beautiful!
It was such a pleasure to help your dream wedding come true. The two of you make such a lovely couple and we wish you all the best in the future. Thank you for all the kind words.
The Chance Family
The barn is absolutely beautiful. They thought of almost everything when building the place. You don't need a lot of other decorations because it is so pretty inside.
The only complaint I have is with the people running it rather than the place itself. They were very nice and accommodating to get you in the door however the day of the wedding they were going back on their word. They even came up to me, the bride, during the reception to complain about how late they had to stay. The complained when we asked them to turn down the lights. They talked to my mom and mother-in-law like children at the end of the night when we were cleaning up.
The place is beautiful and I loved my reception there but they were very unprofessional the day/night of the wedding and I will warn people before booking because of that.
Everyone at Canopy Creek was wonderful and helped the wedding go off without a hitch! They always answered my questions promptly which helps with the stress of planning a wedding.
The venue itself was gorgeous. We got married on a snowy day in November, and the pictures turned out AMAZING! I choose this venue because it was beautiful before the decorations! There was plenty of space for the guests during the ceremony and reception.
My husband and I loved it! We would choose Canopy Creek all over again.
We just had our wedding reception here on November 1,2014. The venue is exceptional! So picture perfect and brand new! The venue is lovely even before you decorate it. They chose tasteful colors that match with any color palette. That is what I liked best. There is no ugly floral carpet to contend with. No brass fixtures that look outdated and even the chairs that are provided are pretty without any extra bows or coverings. I highly recommend this venue if you want a rustic, vintage, or shabby chic venue. Danette and everyone else associated with the venue are very easy to work with! Oh and there are even real horses running around in the pasture next to the venue! It really can't get much better!!
We feel so fortunate to have discovered this beautiful new venue when we did! The exterior and interior of the barn are absolutely breathtaking, and the layout of the venue was very well thought out! We love the fact that we're able to choose our own caterer, bartenders, etc. and that Canopy Creek is in close proximity to hotels for our guests. The inside of the barn is so pretty that we hardly have to bring in any decorations and the Canopy Creek staff have all been great to work with so far!
If you're thinking about getting married in the Dayton area, I would highly recommend checking out Canopy Creek! We're having a Fall 2014 wedding reception here and I cannot wait for all of our guests to see this venue!
Brides: Do not finalize any venue site until you have seen this location.
As soon as I walked through the doors of this venue, I immediately knew that 'THIS WAS THE ONE!'. As of 5 hours ago, I have officially booked Canopy Creek Farm as my venue with Ms. Misty Fortkamp for my April 2016 wedding.
Location: Wedding pictures featured on Pinterest, Google and TheKnot, does not give this location justice. I highly encourage you to visit this spot in person and then make your decision.
Personnel: My second hope for you, is for you to get a chance to meet Misty. She is wonderful, knowledgeable and is a true asset to the Canopy Creek family. I feel comfort in knowing that she will be of assistance for this important occasion of mine.
Lastly, when you visit this venue, bring a couple of very important people with you. In my case, it helped having a second, third and fourth opinion. Namely my mother, sister and sister-in-law. All agreed and verified that this spot has significantly exceeded our expectations.
P.S. The 2016 calendar for this venue is starting to fill up. I suggest you contact them at 937-602-5867 or email at [email protected] and set up an appointment. Good luck!
I just recently reviewed canopy creek farm and I instantly fell in love with it! Misty was wonderful and showed me different ideas like the layout, ceremony ideas, and what brides have done in the past. While viewing the venue I actually ran into a father of the groom that was having their wedding that day and he said the staff was very accommodating and that everything had went smoothly and wonderful! I'm definitely booking my wedding at canopy creep farm within the next few days! But if you like it you better book fast because the dates book up quick!
Canopy Creek is an incredibly stunning venue. I had been looking for a gorgeous barn with a lot of character and found that most of them did not have the convenience and amenities that I knew my guests would appreciate. Canopy Creek is perfect for the bride that wants to incorporate nature into her wedding but still create a place of comfort and convenience for her guests. The staff are amazing! Danette and Misty are always available and couldn't be any sweeter. Misty even worked out a custom floor plan complete with dimensions so that I could easily decorate from home! I recommend Canopy Creek without any hesitation!
Canopy Creek Farm was so beautiful, and made a great location for our ceremony and reception. Dannette (owner) is so nice and wonderful.
My husband and I got married here 2 weeks ago. I have been overwhelmed for nearly a year with planning and details but the easiest decision we made about the entire day was to have it here. It is breathtakingly beautiful. Everyone told us all night how much they had been dying to see the inside of the barn and how pretty it was. We chose this location because we did not want to do a lot of decorating and the barn has enough character to it that few decorations still looked great. The owner, Danette, and her assistant, Misty, were always available for contact for all the little questions that arise along the planning and were very helpful and supportive. A couple of my vendors for the day were a little flaky, so it was kind of a relief that Misty was so organized and made sure everything was running smooth. A friend of mine is planning a wedding for 2015 and changed her venue to Canopy Creek after our wedding she loved it so much. I think we will be back many more times in the future and I love the idea of going back and making more memories!
Where do I even begin. I watched this venue get built from the ground up starting last year. I emailed Danette ( the owner ) as soon as I saw a sign about a wedding venue coming soon. I cannot say enough about Danette .She was absolutely fantastic to work with . She let us come in and really look around and try to get ideas for our wedding. She had so much patience and seemed to really love helping brides and grooms out with their vision . This venue is beyond beautiful and pictures do not do it justice. I had the most amazing experience with the venue and the staff. They made it like I was the only person getting married there and truly listened to the style of wedding my husband and I wanted and made it happen. They were so genuine and seemed to really love their job. They helped out They provided just little extras that we would have never thought of . It was absolutely perfect! Thanks Canopy Creek and Danette and Misty ! Our day was perfect in every way !!!
Those 3 words were not only the first to words to come out of my mouth upon entering canopy creek farm but also the words that were uttered by so many of our guests. Danette & Andy have truly outdone themselves in designing this venue. It is absolutely gorgeous!! From the gorgeous creek nestled among the trees to the beautiful pond we got married in front of, it's gorgeous!! They have beautiful chandeliers and wall sconces that can easily be customized to your preferred light level, a gorgeous bridal suite, tons of picture opportunities, and the open wood beam structure is sure to give you the "wow!" Factor you're looking for! Danette and her team were in contact from showing to booking to the month before meeting, the rehearsal, to the day of and everything in between. They always answered my questions in full, courteously, and in a timely manner. I couldn't be happier we chose this as a venue, it was definitely worth the money!!
Unless the price came down it was $1000 more than Lake Lyndsay. We looked at it before it was even completed so not knowing what the final product looked like and when it would be down coupled with it costing that much more made it a no brainier going with Lake Lyndsay. Also the lady we met with decided to tell us about how horrible Lake Lyndsay was for her daughter's wedding, which in my opinion is not very professional when trying to sell us to have our wedding at your location. It seemed like it would be a great location with a few options for the ceremony outside but not knowing for sure what it would look like at the time of our wedding and being more expensive made it easy to decide
