Do you have a place for an outdoor ceremony?
Yes...a pergola area is located at one end of the barn and features a round concrete area to accommodate as many guests as you can fit on the patio area.

There is also a field option that features a set of barn doors and pergola with a woodsy background.
Is there a back-up plan if the weather is bad?
