Located along the Historical Lincoln Highway, you'll find the quaint town of Bourbon. For many years, this small town has been home to Back Forty Sporting Clays, a 40-acres haven for shotgun shooting enthusiasts, but their Banquet Hall is a haven for couples who want a private wooded setting for their wedding ceremony and reception. In a nutshell, the Back Forty is pure late-summer bliss and it's exactly the setting that Skylar and Ryan wanted for their special day.

Rock Run Creek Barn has all of those make-our-Midwestern-hearts-swell amenities, it's an 1850’s restored barn after all! But it's also air conditioned in the summer, heated in the winter and features inside restrooms ... oh, and it's handicap accessible! Such a big WIN!

The best part of this beautiful venue is it's filled with unique rustic spaces, magnificent views, and whimsical flowers ... which is exactly what Amanda and Adam wanted for their wedding ceremony and reception.
This Bristol-based couple also wanted a fun, lighthearted evening where people felt comfortable dancing the night away but were a bit concerned that their guests wouldn't leave the comfort of their chairs (because lets face it, summer heat combined with air conditioning and a soft chair can be a tiny slice of heaven). This is where DJ Sticky Boots and the Platinum wedding package is such a great choice because he can create the perfect mix to get all ages on the dance floor.
Barn weddings, surrounded by farm fields and rustic granary are so Pinterest-worthy and here in Elkhart County we have some absolutely beautiful barn venues to choose from!
One of our favorites is Meadow Brook Barn in Goshen, Indiana, and we were thrilled when Gina and Aaron selected this venue (and, lets be honest, we were thrilled they selected DJ Sticky Boots and our Platinum wedding package to be a part of their big day, too!).
In the early 1980s, Indiana Beach came up with an advertising slogan still recognizable across the state: “There’s more than corn in Indiana!” … and there certainly is! One of those things is the stunning golf courses throughout Indiana and the greater-Goshen area is no exception.
The Blue Heron at Blackthorn is one of those gems located in South Bend, Indiana. This venue is perfect because it’s just minutes from downtown South Bend and the South Bend International Airport which is perfect for your guests who are flying in for your big day! But one of the most perfect features is the colonial cape cod building itself that has an airy country club ambiance with vistas overlooking some of the prettiest golf holes in northern Indiana.
