The Upper Level | Great Room Loft

The main space in the barn is our Great Room Loft. Spanning 3,100 square feet, it’s the perfect location to have all your guests gather in one open but beautiful area. The barn has been meticulously restored while preserving original elements of the building. Crystal chandeliers hang from the Gothic Arch shaped roof of aged timbers to create a dramatic effect for your special occasion. The space also boasts hardwood floors, comfortable lounge furniture, and large windows on each end of the great room that open to allow natural light to pour in. The whole barn has amenities that no other barn venue can compete with like a handicap accessible elevator, high tech AV system, wireless microphone, and a Bose surround system so any presentation is a success. Our barn also is equipped with heat and air conditioning so guests will be comfortable for the duration of the event.

The Lower Level | Mingling Space

The lower level is where guests will enter into Green Acres Event Center. They’ll be immediately greeted with a warm glow from our eclectic lighting, various textures, and mixed décor like our Italian water fountain and leather seating. This space is also used to host a cocktail hour between wedding ceremonies and receptions while the Great Room Loft is being transitioned between events. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy a refreshment from our bar and catch up with other guests.

Hospitality Suite | The Silo

The silo is located in the lower level of the barn and is the perfect private space to gather with your wedding party to primp and pose for getting ready pictures or sign your marriage certificate after you’ve said ‘I do’. No matter how you use it, this is a gorgeous space that has a vanity mirror, ultra-high ceiling, and décor to make your memories unique.

This new addition to our space was designed to be the ultimate sanctuary for wedding parties. Nestled away from the bustle of the big day, this stand-alone chalet exudes comfort and elegance. With four salon-style getting-ready stations, plush velvet couches, a room divider for dressing privacy, and modern amenities including heat and air-conditioning, The Cottage ensures a tranquil and stylish preparation experience. Step onto the charming walk-out porch adorned with two bistro sets, perfect for savoring quiet moments before the festivities begin. Discover the picture-perfect suite where memories are made and dreams come to life on your special day!

The Great Outdoors

Our barn venue is located near the beautiful Staring Lake Park. Filled with greenery and open fields, it makes for a scenic backdrop for your wedding day images. The grounds surrounding the barn are filled with décor that will add unique fun and interest to any event. Classic John Deere tractors, a horse drawn carriage, and a custom-built hayride with cow benches adorn our yard, making it a fun space for guests to meander. Our Cowboy Cauldron is where you can even roast s’mores over an open fire for a sweet treat!

Outdoor Ceremony Spot

Tie the knot under a lush canopy of trees in the most romantic setting. The sun’s rays will dance through the leaves and give your ceremony a sweet glow. This is one of two ceremony spots that we offer at Green Acres Event Center. If inclement weather is in the forecast for your nuptials, we will seamlessly transition your ceremony to our other ceremony spot indoors in the Great Room Loft.

On-Site Parking Lot

We have on-site parking available for up to 60 vehicles so you guests can arrive and stroll into your big day with ease. Events with more than 60 vehicles or 120 guests will require a valet or shuttle service at the client’s expense. But don’t worry, we can set you up with solid recommendations for this with one of our vendor partners.
