This was the first venue my husband and I toured when searching for a venue. We toured one more venue, but our hearts were set on Furber! Angi and Wayne and their staff were wonderful to work with, gave an informative tour of the venue, and are constantly working to improve their barn. Their hard work does not go unnoticed, during our wedding and even after we got MANY compliments on how gorgeous the venue was for both the ceremony and reception. The venue has a natural beauty that does not need a lot of decor to make it beautiful which is one of the reasons my husband and I were drawn to it. The ceremony site is beautiful overlooking the valley and could not have asked for a better spot to get married! Thank you Angi and Wayne for the opportunity to have our wedding in Furber because everyone truly had the greatest time. If you want an unforgettable venue, this is it!

The farm was amazing for our event! They thought of everything layout and decor wise, and the barn is truly breathtaking! The second floor was perfect for the laid back crowd wanting to relax and observe everything going on, and we loved the personal touches they added decor wise. We also loved working with the owners - so sweet and helpful, and made everything easy for us! Would easily recommend them to others for weddings and events!

My daughter was married and had her reception at the Historic John P Furber Farm on 7/8/2017. From the first contact, Angi and Wayne were quick to respond and open and available to questions we had throughout the wedding process. They are very professional and great to work with- a really wonderful couple that made us feel like part of their family, they truly wanted the wedding day to be perfect for us! They have a list of preferred vendors, which was very helpful, the vendors we used all worked together and made everything look better than we could have imagined! On the day of the wedding, Wayne and Angi were both on site to check in throughout the day to make sure we knew the codes to the bridal suite, all questions were answered and to let us know how to contact them if we needed anything. At the end of the night, they helped us pull off a surprise fireworks display for the guests and helped us clean up and gather our things. All of our guests LOVED the venue, the perfect blend of rustic elegance with plenty of room for our 275 guests to move around inside and play yard games in the front yard. Not to mention how great it was to have a barn venue that was air conditioned and comfortable on a hot July day! The Bridal Suite is absolutely beautiful we used the kitchenette and full bathroom with shower- plenty of mirrors and comfortable couches which made for a relaxing start to the day for the bridal party! I would highly recommend the Historic John P Furber Farm venue and Wayne and Angi for the perfect wedding experience- we could not have been happier with everything!

Wayne and Angi did an outstanding job for our wedding. Bent over backwards to accommodate us. We were married there on March 11, 2017. Barn was very warm (good thing in the winter), food was excellent through the caterer (This Little Piggy Catering) and the DJ was excellent as well (we had Dan from Adagio).

I hadn't even seen a picture of this venue before pulling into the driveway but when I saw the white barn from the outside, I knew I had to see what was inside. Inside was even more beautiful! I was sold! My fiance and I signed our contract shortly after and had the absolute pleasure of working with Angi & Wayne for the next 11 months. They are very organized in their methods and very kind in their communication. The barn was beautiful, warm & toasty for our winter wedding, and Angi & Wayne were so nice to come check on us and make sure everything looked alright. They had done so much work on the inside over the course of the 11 months that it looked even better than the day we first saw it. There was even a Christmas tree we were able to use for our Winter Wonderland themed night. We received endless compliments on the venue about its natural beauty. We hardly paid anything for our decorations because the venue speaks for itself with the beautiful wood tables and chairs. The day was everything I'd hoped it to be and Angi & Wayne were amazing the entire way through, even inviting us to events they host at the venue and checking in with us throughout our engagement to see if we needed help with any vendors. We chose their preferred DJ and catering company and would do it again in a heartbeat. They chose their vendors carefully and I can see why--they're the best! No one had a bad thing to say the entire day/evening and we continue to hear how great the place was. If you're looking for a unique barn space with the "industrial chic" look, Angi & Wayne have just the place!! Check it out--chances are you'll cancel your other venue tours afterwards just like we did, and you will NOT regret it!

Thank you so very, very much Rachel! We're so happy to have been part of your day with our historic barn! Blessings to you both!

I don't even know where to begin. This venue is like no other. Sean and I booked this venue when it was dirt. It literally looked like they just took the cows out of the barn. But if you knew Angie and Wayne you would understand why we could make that kind of gamble. This couple has transformed this beautiful barn into something so special and unique. They were so helpful on the wedding day and the days leading up to it. The venue is perfect for a big or small crowd. There is plenty of space and plenty of ways to tweak things and make it your own! It has been so fun to see what every bride does differently for their own day. I think my absolute favorite part is that the barn itself is enough. Decorations are great but not even needed here. Of course every bride wants to design their own center pieces and put their own taste to things but I would have been just as happy walking into this place without doing a thing. The barn is beautiful enough as is. My entire family was impressed with its beauty and I'm so excited to see pictures of many weddings to come in this place. God bless this couple, God bless this venue, and God bless the future couples to experience it.
