What is an Adventure Wedding?
Adventure Weddings often include many outdoor adventure activities and are considered completely unique wedding experiences. These types of weddings are best suited to those who enjoy an adventurous lifestyle (or those who want to introduce more adventure into their lives)!
Adventure weddings can last one day or an entire weekend! We offer many activities including Zip Line Tours, ATV & Buggy Tours, Paintball, and more. We also have an onsite lake and over 30 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails. Some examples activities that may occur during an adventure wedding here:
I'm concerned that older members of the wedding party may not want to participate in adventurous activities. Can you be too old to participate?
You can never be too old to participate in our activities! People of a myriad of ages have enjoyed zip lining, riding ATVs or buggies, and playing paintball in the past. We also offer hiking and mountain biking trails of varying intensities. Needless to say, we’re friendly to all ages and abilities here! If some of your guests still feel uncomfortable with participating, they are more than welcome to act as a spectator in many of the activities.
Do I need to have zip lining, paintball, ATV riding, hiking, biking, or boating experience?
You do not need to have any experience! We have the ability to cater all of our activities to people of various skill levels. In addition, our biking and hiking trails have different intensities which are mapped out and kept at the front of our building for your convenience.
I would like to offer my guests the option of renting a cabin or campsite, as well as the opportunity to participate in your activities, but I don't want to be responsible for their payments and reservations. Can you help me with this?
Absolutely! We can provide you with a unique XBC Code, specific to your event. You can then distribute that code through your invitations, website, email, etc. allowing your guests to use that code to reserve their own adventure during your event, while still getting any group discounts that we discuss.
Although I love the idea of spending my time outdoors, I am worried it will rain on my wedding day! Do you have an indoor venue we could rent for our reception?
We have our beautiful Harvest Hall which is fully heated and air conditioned and it can be used as a backup in case it rains! It’s a rustic-style hall furnished with tables and chairs, a small bar area, a stage area for bands or dancing, and it is decorated with rustic antiques and original paintings by Patricia Rhoden Bartels, a highly accredited Impressionistic painter.
The average person spends over $25,000 on their wedding and I can't afford to spend nearly that much. How expensive are adventure weddings?
Our packages are completely customizable depending on your needs. We recognize that couples have varying budgets and we make adventure weddings affordable for most budget types. We offer discounts for multiple activities and for large groups. You can easily afford to have a traditional or adventure wedding here on a tight budget. We offer you the ability to cater your own event saving you money.
I would like to visit your facility. Do I have to schedule an appointment for this?
We ask that you call ahead to ensure that the Harvest Hall is not currently in use. You can also book an appointment online using by clicking here. We may have same-day appointments available. You can contact us at email@example.com or by calling 812.988.7750.
I have more questions about your Harvest Hall, such as questions regarding pricing, discounts, the use of outside caterers, and the serving of alcohol at our event. Where can I find more information?
