The Wedding Barn

The Barn is available for decorating and set-up on Friday before your event from 4pm to 9pm. You have use of the building and grounds on Saturday from 8am to Midnight. We ask that all clean up is completed by Noon on Sunday.

Saturday Events are $3,000.00. We require a $1,500.00 non-refundable deposit at the time of booking. The balance is due on the day of the event. We will provide clean up of the venue (removing decorations, stowing tables and chairs) for an additional $500.00.

We look forward to celebrating your Happily Ever After with you!

​​This rustic and beautiful 110-year old, solar powered barn is the perfect venue for anyone who wants everlasting memories on their special day.​ In addition to the Barn, several outdoor locations on the property make a stunning backdrop for your ceremony and photography.


Please Note: We are located in eastern Stephenson County, Illinois. If you are planning your wedding ceremony at Happily Ever After, please obtain a marriage license through the Stephenson County Clerk's Office.
