The McCorkle and Deelstra families can't say enough good about The Rustic Ranch Wedding and Event Barn. They are such fabulous hosts. They helped our daughter Kendra and son in law Mike's wedding be the wedding of their dreams. They are talented and organized, hard working and so kind. From planning and decorating, to being available the entire day and evening, we knew we didn't need to worry all day and evening. We were able to celebrate and enjoy the wedding and reception, knowing they were behind the scenes keeping everything organized and running smoothly. We had so many compliments from our guests about the venue. Thank you Crystal and Mark for helping us make the best memories ☺!
