They've turned the ranch into a 20-acre pasture venue with rolling hills, a pond, and a temperature-controlled barn with large windows that give it a brightness you don't often find in a barn wedding reception. The venue has unexpected touches, like a getting ready space within an 1890's post office and a grand chandelier greeting guests as they arrive.
