Dreams do come true

A dream of mine as a child was to get married in s big red barn, when I met Debora and heard her story in bringing life back to this one of a kind gem I knew it was the one! Debora and her staff are charismatic and hard working, they helped us out along the way to create a dream come true!

Amazing venue

I cannot say enough about this venue. Deb is by far the most accommodating and helpful person. Venue was spectacular and the staff go above and beyond to help you. Deb worked with us during Covid and was honestly the most caring person, allowing us to have both an elopement and rebook our date to another date after Covid. 10/10 worth your time and money.

Beautiful venue and wonderful staff!

There were so many extra's we could use for decorating, this is a beautiful venue with lighting and décor before we added our own decorations. Booking with Debra was so easy and on the wedding day the staff was amazing. They saw all details and tented to them before we needed to think of it. It was a memorable day and I wouldn't hesitate to use this venue again! Great for photos inside and out!

Overall great experience

Overall great experience. Absolutely stunning venue.

The girls and I had an amazing little house to get ready in. Watch those stairs though, they’re steep. The boys also had an amazing getting ready room.

The hall is beautiful and the barn chapel is stunning. Magazine worthy! Such an amazing space. The groomsman room doubled as a kids room for naps; with games and an Xbox in there.

You DO NOT need to buy directional signage or really any signage as it’s provided; didn’t realize that until we paid for many rentals.

The one thing I will say is to write down everything and be mindful with your booze; and triple read the contract. We were told we could bring our own table wine and beer. A week before hand; after buying a LARGE financial amount of beer we were told we couldn’t do that. It worked out in the end but it caused unnecessary stress.

Be careful with bridesmaid and groomsman gifts if you plan to give and open them there. As a VERY rude comment was made to the mother of the bride saying “there’s booze in the groomsman gift bags. They’ll end up drunk and puking in my parking lot”

Well, that indicated that not only did the owner go through our gift bags; but that comment was rude and uncalled for. Nor did it happen.


All in all Deb was wonderful to work with. And we will be back for their Christmas markets and summer farmers market.

Dream Wedding

We got married at the Heritage Centre in June and it was nothing shy of amazing! We live on a farm close by and Deb and her staff were so accommodating in letting us bring several big pieces of farm equipment to the barn and parking it there to complete our day! This really shows that anything here can be made possible. I really loved the fact that Deb already has so many decorations and things to choose from, this really saved a lot of stress leading up to the day! Overall I wish I could marry the same person all over again... I wouldn't have changed our experience here one bit. An exceptional venue and staff, without all their efforts our day wouldn't have gone as flawless as it did. 10/10 recommend this venue to anyone!

July 9th 2022 wedding!

Deb was great to work with and the venue is absolutely stunning. They took care of the set up, all I had to do was very minimal decorations because the inside is so beautiful you don’t even need any!! Very easy going and the day of the wedding was completely flawless. We brought out some old trucks for photo ops! Deb was extremely flexible with dates as we were initially booked for 2021. She made sure we had a date we wanted for 2022! I would recommend this beautiful place to anyone.

What an Amazing Spectacular Venue!!! Our guest were blown away

This venue is amazing and the owner is very flexible and easy to work with. Everyone that attended the wedding were blown away by this place!!! There is a house on the premises that the bridal party were able to use to get ready for the wedding which made it so easy and stress free. I can't say enough about this venue and I would recommend it to one and all!!! Thank you for making my daughter's wedding (Teana and Trevor Sedgwick October 2, 2021) so spectacular!!!

Beautiful Location

I got married at the Heritage Centre last month and it was magical. The venue is just stunning! We didn't need much to dress it up. We took our photos at the venue and there are so many different scenes. We took pictures in the barn, house, forest area, and fields. The owner (Deborah) is so accommodating especially during this time of uncertainty. If you book this venue you won't be disappointed.

A Prairie Treasure

The MVE Heritage Centre, known by most as Cremona's Big Red Barn is the most beautiful wedding venue in Mountain View County. The restored barn is breathtaking for an elegant wedding. You can choose to add your own personal touches but the wood itself is gorgeous and highlights the beauty of the bride. Families planning a Wedding on The Prairies must book this venue. Our daughter's wedding day will forever be remembered for the warmth, seamless flow, and fabulous hospitality. The MVE Heritage Centre is a treasure at reasonable cost.

Absolutely amazing! Highly recommend

This is the most amazing venue and hosts. Debora is the sweetest most accommodating host, and was available and willing to help from start to finish! The facility is magical. Both the guys and girls of the bridal party were able to get ready on the property but in separate spaces, this made it so easy and relaxing. Debora made sure the children also had a space with TV, movies and toys to keep the little's busy. Even though we only had 20 guests, we were able to use the whole space and nothing was off limits etc. use of kitchen, all bathrooms, various ceremony spaces and outside areas. Even more amazing was that I was able to bring in my own decor and Debora incorporated it and made it even more beautiful with the use of what the facility offers.
The layout of the facility is perfect! Guests are able to use all spaces yet feel as if they are not separated. The licensed bar was stocked and the use of the galvanized trough is the perfect touch! The property is gorgeous and there is ample opportunity for amazing pictures at various locations. I cant say enough how absolutely amazing the venue is and even more amazing the hosts!
