I just wanted to let you know what an awesome wedding and reception we had at Amish Acres on 8/16. Everything went smoothly and the day just flowed perfectly. Everyone was raving about how awesome the food and venue was. I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work!! Also your husband was very helpful at the bar! I stuck to only having water to drink after the reception and he would start getting it ready when he saw me headed to the bar!
Everything more then exceeded our expectations and we are so happy that our special day was at Amish Acres!! It truly felt like a fairy tale and was a dream come true!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!

Hi Becky! Thanks for all you did to make our wedding day so perfect for Janna and I. We’ve compiled our thoughts for you below. Please let us know if you need anything else!
Ceremony in the Barn Loft Room:
Atmosphere: The atmosphere was wonderful! We think it could have been a little bit cooler, but then again, maybe our sweating was just from nerves!
Sound and Lights: The sound and lighting worked great for us. We did have a problem with one of the two channels on the amp (channel 1, I believe), but after switching to the other channel, it worked fine.
Wedding Assistance: We were very happy with how things were setup and surprised and blessed by the help we had in taking things down. We are also very appreciative of your help in removing the canoe for the ceremony.
Cleanliness of Facility: The facility was amazing. Everything was very clean and orderly and ready to go.
Food: People are raving about the food (us included). It was spectacular!
Quality: Everything was done with excellence. We were very impressed.
Service: The service was wonderful. We truly enjoyed the attentive, friendly, smiling staff who made the night even more enjoyable.
Additional Comments: The lighting, décor, and setup were amazing. Thanks for all your hard work to make this a spectacular night for us. Just one comment about the hors d’oeuvres… we heard from our guests that there were not enough for everyone, even though we ordered for 110 and there were only 80 people downstairs for that part of our reception. It wasn’t anything major, but you may want to let folks know in the future that an extra tray or two would be a good idea.
Wedding Coordinator Assistance:
Becky, you were absolutely wonderful to work with. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your help. From start to finish, you made this very easy for us.
Why did you choose Amish Acres over other wedding reception venues?
The building and setting were perfect for us. We wanted a location where we could have the ceremony and reception together, and we wanted a mix of country and formal elegance. Price was also important, as was location and food selection, and all of these factors came together to make this our perfect wedding location. Additional features, such as an on-site hotel and preset decorations (such as the trees and lights in both rooms) were a great plus.
Over all experience at Amish Acres:
We couldn’t be happier with our experience at Amish Acres. It was the perfect place to celebrate our marriage, and we wouldn’t change a thing!
Cleanliness of Facility: Excellent – the facility was immaculately clean
Food: Excellent – we received many compliments on the menu selection and awesome food
Service: Food & Beverage Service from the wait-staff was excellent.
Additional Comments:: What a great meal! Our guests loved that the meal was served “family style” and the selections were delicious. The restaurant looked beautiful, lots of compliments on the beautiful beams, rustic barn, & lighting.
Wedding Coordinator Assistance:
Excellent – Becky did a fantastic job working with me over the phone and via email. Although we were unable to meet or see the venue in person prior to the event, Becky was wonderfully accommodating, and she was able to work with my vision for the reception and make it a reality. During the planning stages, she was responsive and answered all of our questions thoroughly. A+ to Becky!

Over all experience at Amish Acres: Awesome. Amish Acres was the perfect setting for our intimate (100 guests) celebration. We felt like we had plenty of room for our party, without feeling like we had too much empty space. Service & Food was outstanding, and working with the wedding coordinator was a terrific experience. If we were given the opportunity to re-do the celebration, we wouldn't have changed a thing.
Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to Becky and the staff at Amish Acres Restaurant for making our wedding reception such a wonderful event!! We couldn't have asked for a more spectacular location...gorgeous barn, lovely setting (perfect for pics!!), terrific staff, UNBELIEVABLE food...our guests still can't stop talking about it :) We didn't have to worry about a thing from planning through wedding day...five stars!!

Round Barn Ceremony: Our Ceremony in the Round Barn Theatre was perfect. We felt like it was the perfect fit for us. Amish Acres staff was more than accomodating to our every need, The only suggestion that we have is for more room on stage for future ceremonies, but overall very pleased with the whole outcome. Amish Acres exceeded our expectations. We had nothing but great feedback from everyone that attended our ceremony. Thanks again for everyone's hard work to make our day special.
Cleanliness of Facility: The restaurant was very invitiing and very clean.
Food: Food was phenomonal! I wish i had a to go box!!
Quality: Even better than what we expected.

Wedding Planning Assistance: Our wedding Coordinator Becky was very helpful. She answered all of our questions in a timely manner and was of great assistance on our wedding day to make sure everything was running smoothly.
Why did you choose Amish Acres over other wedding reception venues? Amish Acres was willing to work with us to keep us in our budget. Each facility made for great pictures, and it was convenient to have both ceremony and reception in one location.
Over all experience at Amish Acres: Lauren and I couldn't have asked for a better day. It was PERFECT.

Heather and Jason's wedding reception was everything they had hoped it would be. Everyone had a great time and we could not have found a more perfect location. You and your staff made the evening very enjoyable. The food was excellent and the help you provided with the clean up was greatly appreciated at the end of the evening.
Thanks for making the evening everything Heather and Jason wanted for there wedding day.
I wanted to say THANK YOU for all you did to help make Beth's wedding so much fun! I so appreciated your support and warm caring coordination. It always felt like you took the time to find out what we wanted and then led the direction that way. There was never a push to do something different than what we desired.
ALL the staff we encountered were extremely accommodating-- we heard this from several different people during the wedding from the extreme of a friend who had to go the ER and was escorted by the hotel management, to guests during the reception who had specific requests, to each of you during the set up and decorating time with the ice water readily supplied, and the carts to help us get our stuff out to the car after the reception!
Both you and Jimmy did everything we could imagine to make our experience special and memorable. Jimmy even did more than expected with the "special" beverages for me! It was fun, exciting, and very very special. We will continue to highly recommend your services, location and expertise to all our friends and family.

Thank you so very much for our Beautiful Reception. Your faculty looked great in their Amish Clothes it brought a lot of fun to our guests who were from out of town. The food was excellent, and served in good timing. The quality of everything was awesome from the tulle, to the table settings and lastly the service staff met our needs with no problem the entire night.
Your wedding coordination and assistance was all the help we could ask for! We will defiantly recommend Amish Acres as a wedding location to anyone who wants a great reception venue.

Cleanliness of Facility: Excellent
Food: Overall very good. Dressing, mashed potatoes and the ham were excellent. The chicken was a little dry, and the bread was dry without enough butter to make it better! But overall very good, and lots of compliments were received on the food.
Quality: Good. No suggestions on improvement.
Service: Friendly staff, seemed attentive to patrons needs.
Wedding Planning Assistance: I felt Becky was very helpful and answered every question that we had before the event. By the time that day came - and we had gotten through the wedding part -- I felt confident that the reception would go off beautifully knowing that Becky was handling the details and I didn't need to worry about them!
Over all experience at Amish Acres: I think that we had a great experience and we received many compliments and words from others who also expressed that feeling. They loved the atmosphere of the barn with the lights and tulle and thought the food was great.
