Cathy & Dustin

How do I make a 6-star review? Barb and Dan at the Mercantile went above and beyond for Dustin and I. Please, don't look any further for a venue. All of her collections made for a distinctly unique wedding. They were receptive and accommodating to our requests. There were needs the day of the wedding, Barb and Dan made the changes seem seamless. We had so many compliments from our guests as this being the best venue ever!! Thank you both for all of your hard work!!!

Barb and her crew are AMAZING. I gave Barb my entire Pinterest board of ideas and she completely exceeded every expectation I had. She made the entire place so beautiful and breathtaking. I am forever grateful for everything they did for us on our special day. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to start the new chapter of our lives as husband and wife. Thank you so much ❤️

Barb and Dan's flexibility and willingness to help us any way they could help so much in keeping our schedule sane; very appreciative of that.

If you want a gorgeous venue that has a rustic charm, this is your place. We had our wedding last night and could not be happier with The Mercantile. Beautiful space inside and out, and a very helpful staff. Word of mouth reviews are very important and I want to share with everyone what a great experience we had. Go visit, you will not be disappointed.

Our wedding and reception were absolutely perfect at The Mercantile! Barb and her team went above and beyond any expectations to make our day absolutely flawless. I will forever recommend this venue to all of my family and friends!

From a vendors eye, the mercantile is laid out perfectly to have an outdoor ceremony, cocktail hour on the patio then dinner inside the rustic barn.


The accommodations for the bride and groom are very nice. A brand new grooms lounge is a very nice touch.


The barn and property are very clean and neat. The landscaping is beautiful and the staff and owners notice the small details that most venues overlook. Their own Uplighting makes it nice for your decor. Their decorations and other additions inside the barn makes it that nice rustic feel without overdoing it.


The owners and staff are extremely nice and well organized. They never look or feel overwhelmed which makes it easier for other vendors and everyone else to relax and enjoy the night.


I highly recommend The Mercantile. You will not be disappointed! On a side note, if you need a DJ, Photobooth or Flowers we are for you.

Barb and Dan have created a great wedding venue at the Mercantile. We helped our kids plan their wedding day at this barn-like setting and were blown away by the kindness and talent of this team. The facility was perfect and Barb and Dan were better. All our guests had a great time.
