We had our wedding reception in my (Melissa's) parents barn. Never in our wildest dreams did we even imagine owning a wedding barn. This farm was purchased seven years ago with intent of growing cash crops and possibly using the barn to raise heifers. Several years passed and we had used the barn only once as shelter for a team of horses that were used in a select cutting of our woods. In 2015 a local farming committee asked if we would host a field day, and if we had a shelter available. We agreed to host the event and then constructed a stairway to access the upper level of our barn. This encouraged us to finish renovating the barn to hold weddings and other events. We had our first wedding reception in April, 2016 and are fortunate to expand our small business since. To learn more about the way we farm our land and how the barn venue began, here is a video.
We enjoy being a part of the wedding planning process: from the first tour of showing a prospective couple the property and then working with them to plan their dream wedding. Being the rental is Friday - Sunday, we find that things are much more relaxed and you can really focus on the small details. Every wedding is a unique experience and we are happy to continue adding couples to our wedding family.
In addition to owning Eron's Event Barn, LLC, we crop farm and custom harvest alfalfa and corn silage for other farms in the area. We are excited to share our passion for agriculture through our native plant gardens and conservation practices. Our goal is to connect people to agriculture. This year we were honored to receive the Wisconsin Leopold Conservation Award. God has blessed us with two children who always make our days brighter.
~John & Melissa Eron
John & Melissa are amazing people to work with. I was very admit about keeping our original date that I had planned for over 2.5 years ago, even in the world we have today. Melissa helped so much with her amazing communication through the process all the way up to our wedding. John also made sure that we had a backup plan if the rain decided to start in, but it held off and I am so lucky I was able to have the ceremony outside. The barn is such a wonderful place to get married & so beautiful inside and outside! Brandon and I could not have asked for a more wonderful day to celebrate our marriage. We cannot thank Melissa and John enough for all the hard work they do & did to help us. You guys are the absolute best. ~ Jordyn, Bride
