It truly is lovely for a wedding ceremony! Envision the bride coming out of the old farmhouse double doors. Standing on the covered porch with her father, looking out over family and friends. Then venturing their way down the steps towards the groom. The front lawn has mature trees and a beautiful flower bed. My Daughter choose to use this space for her ceremony!
