“When I started the planning process for my wedding, I knew exactly what I wanted, but had no idea how to create it. I was blessed to hear about Lake Ashby Farms having barn weddings & was lucky enough to tour Lake Ashby Farms & was instantly hooked! Between the twinkle lights, antique china & dozens of other stunning details, I knew this is where I had to get married. The memorable quote, “It’s the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen,” made me realize I could never create an environment as beautiful as what was created at that barn. Donna Sue was amazing to work with; she made me feel like family, always available to answer any questions or concerns. Everyone who attended that night raved about the venue and said how perfect it was. I waited 36 years to get married and walked away that night knowing I had waited for the perfect partner as well as the perfect place to say I do.”

I always dreamed of my fairytale wedding as a little girl and the venue in itself was magical. Everything about the property was beautiful, the Oak tree, the barn, the cocktail area and the deck that leads to the beautiful lake….. Everything about this venue was what we pictured for our wedding venue and we will never forget how wonderful it was. We absolutely love how Donna Sue goes above and beyond to make sure that your day is absolutely perfect. Anything that we needed or any questions that we had, she was there for us. Its great when you can find the perfect venue that has everything that you want. Its amazing when you can find a place run by someone as amazing and caring as Donna Sue. Lake Ashby Farms made all my little girl dreams come to life, it gave me my fairytale wedding.”

“Our wedding couldn’t have been more perfect. It was everything & more that we could have ever hoped for, elegant, charming, romantic, comfortable & totally fun! You turned an ordinary barn & farm into an extraordinarily beautiful country chic venue. After 2 years we still have guests tell us that our wedding was the most unique & exquisitely beautiful wedding they’ve ever seen!”

“I’ve never been the type of person to dream about my fairy tale wedding, so when I got engaged, it became very real very fast. The only things I knew were that I didn’t want a wedding in a banquet hall and I wanted our wedding to reflect my husband and my relationship: simple, but sweet. As soon as we pulled into Lake Ashby Farms and met Donna Sue, we knew it was it. Donna Sue is AMAZING to work with! She is so kind and willing to go above and beyond to make anyone’s day special. I truly felt honored to work alongside her, and all of our guests agreed. Donna Sue is wonderful and her wedding venue is breath-taking. All of the details she adds kept everyone in awe. From the chandelier in the tree, to the antique china our guests ate on, to the lights strung in the barn….it was better than my wildest imaginations. It truly was the best day of our lives, and it couldn’t have been possible without Donna Sue and Lake Ashby Farms.”
