The early 1800’s historic barn will accommodate up to 200 seated guests. The barn features a bridal ready suite, indoor restrooms, and a designated bar area. The barn ceiling is draped with cafe lighting, centered by a crystal chandelier. Mini light strands adorn lower beams to create a magical ambiance.
The Gish Barn and grounds will open for wedding preparation as early as 8 am on the morning of your wedding. This allows for your friends, family and hired wedding professionals, all-day access to set up and personalize your decor. Reception festivities must end by 11 pm. Rehearsal time is usually scheduled on the Thursday prior to the wedding.
Located just a few yards away from the barn’s grand doorways is a wooded area popular for an outdoor ceremony. This landscaped space is perfect for a ceremony, beautiful pictures, or simply an area for your guests to stroll and relax under the lit trees. This intimate setting provides a change of environment from the open fields surrounding the barn and will be a picturesque accent to your wedding day.
