Say “I do” at Nickajack Farms
“I do”. The words every bride and groom are waiting to hear on their wedding day. Nickajack Farms has helped many people over the years to hear those two simple yet meaningful words on their special day.
Nickajack Farms is a wedding venue with a twist, it is a fully operational farm. Guests can look out and see hay, pumpkins, soybeans, corn and much more. Apart from the crops on the farm, we have a variety of farm animals. One unique aspect of the farm is that the serene outside venue has horse pastures next to it.
Debbie Sebolt owns Nickajack Farms along with her husband Joe and three daughters, Rebecca, Amanda, and Jessica. All three daughters actively help on the farm. They do a variety of jobs, one of which includes helping couples make their dreams come true. In the beginning Nickajack was a horse boarding facility with 42 horses residing on the farm.
Debbie got the idea for the venue after boarders, along with family friends, started asking about getting married at the farm. After the horse boarders moved out and as we were remodeling, more and more interest was gained for renting the barn as a venue. Today what is the main event hall “The Mane Barn” is a renovated barn that once housed 16 horses, a tribute to the barn’s past with its name.
Nickajack Farms boasts two ceremony locations; The Chapel and The Mane Barn, though the bride and groom can choose another location, if desired. The Chapel is a picturesque outdoor location with a view of the front fields full of crops like corn, soybeans and the pastures. A gravel path leads guests to bench seating and a beautiful ceremony. This setting is perfect for a spring, summer or fall day. This site is created to look like remnants of a white barn, giving the Chapel a stunning rustic element to your special day.
The Mane Barn is the indoor ceremony and reception site. With black iron railings, high ceilings and romantic lighting, The Mane Barn is ideal for couples who want that rustic barn look. Guests can relax inside, with both heating and air conditioning, The Mane Barn sits at a comfortable temperature all year long. Equipped with indoor restrooms, built in bar and seating for 200, this barn makes for a great reception hall as well.
The reception will be full of memories with a large dance floor. The barn has options for extra activities like a bon fire, yard games, hayride or wandering into the animal barns for a night full of fun. With the reception hall you will get standard circular tables for guest seating, and a rectangular table for the head table and other areas. Also, a part of the barn is a separate room for the food to be set up. With this room, you give your caterer a quiet place to work, and allow for a buffet line to flow smoothly.
Don’t worry about wrinkling suits or gowns on your way. Nickajack has locations for the bride and her entourage to get dressed, as well as the groom and his groomsmen. “The Bridal Suite” is a stunning handcrafted building that has three makeup stations, a sitting area and privacy to change. This suite, along with the groom’s room, is temperature controlled and in a private area of the farm.
With each wedding Nickajack provides three staff members for the ceremony, two of which also work the reception to help ensure that each couple’s special day runs smoothly.
