    When searching for venues for our wedding, we knew that we wanted an all-in-one place since most of our family and friends would be traveling. After visiting the property and getting to spend time with Matt and Kirst, we both instantly knew that Kirstenvale wedding venue was the perfect location for our wedding day! Throughout the process, we worked with Matt and Kirst to plan what was, in our opinion, the most perfect wedding day. They were always prompt with responding to our inquiries, gave excellent recommendations for catering and did an amazing job of setting up the reception area. Our family and friends still rave about the beautiful location and the delicious food every time we see them! We couldn’t have been more happy with our special day.  A highlight of our experience was during the photo shoot, a lot of our special moments were captured with beautiful wild life.
