Small Town, Big Day: Your Danville Wedding

Most wedding planning is full of compromises. You want a beautiful setting, but you’re on a budget. You want small-town charm and a backdrop of natural beauty, but most of your guests live in the city. You want the pleasure of choosing all the details that will make your wedding meaningful and unique, but you don’t want the headache of managing all those details when you should be celebrating your love and enjoying time with family and friends.

But with Danville as your wedding destination, there’s no need for compromise. The venues listed below are among the options Danville offers for a couple planning their perfect wedding day.

Magnolia Manor

Located just down from historic Perryville’s Merchants Row, Magnolia Manor is one of Boyle County’s newest wedding venues. It is located on 8 acres of property and includes indoor and outdoor space.

Bluegrass Wedding Barn

Nestled on a 76-acre site, Bluegrass Wedding Barn’s indoor and outdoor event spaces combine stunning natural beauty and vintage charm with modern conveniences to help your big day go smoothly.

The large main barn rises airily to strings of white lights and crystal drop chandeliers that cast a lovely glow over the honey-colored wood of the crisscrossed rafters. Touches like masses of flowers in bourbon barrels, or weathered chalkboards with a special message for your guests, add just the right amount of whimsy and fun. Just outside, a colonnaded veranda looks out on beautiful Central Kentucky hill country.

Or if you want to say your vows outdoors, you can gather before a simple, wooden arch with the Bluegrass sky as your backdrop, or wed at the edge of the venue’s tranquil pond as its graceful fountain lights up the night behind you. Even a snowy day is a winter wonderland at Bluegrass Wedding Barn.

The staff at Bluegrass Wedding Barn specializes in making planning and logistics easy and stress-free. They take care of as many of the details as you’d like. Just share your plans and dreams with Bluegrass Wedding Barn’s capable and caring staff, and they’ll take care of the rest, with no hidden or added fees.

Also on the grounds is a unique, multi-sided, cupola-topped wedding barn that’s the perfect venue for a couple who want a more intimate, but equally refined, setting. Many windows offer expansive views of the surrounding countryside, while antiqued mirrors inside reflect tiny lights strung across the gabled ceiling above.
