The Lowdown Venue Setting
You've found The One, now it is time to fall in love with the perfect venue. With our wedding packages, you will have exclusive access to the the property for the entire day. Our team will set up the ceremony chairs under the reaching arms of an old oak tree or in the stunning vaulted Loft. Tables and natural wooden Chiavari Chairs will be set up for your reception in the Carriage Way of the main barn, so decorating can begin as early as 8:00 am. Many people will admire different things about the Mayowood Stone Barn. Perhaps it is the beautiful stone arches or the amazing giant bur oaks stretching over the grounds. They may enjoy perusing the property, imagining Dr. Charlie Mayo and his family riding horses on the racetrack, or the crews he gave work to during the Great Depression creating the dragontooth stone walls surrounding the farm. Mostly, though, the most amazing thing about this place is the feeling of togetherness that occurs inside and out of these century-old stone walls. From the perspective of the people who are here day in and day out, the magic of the Mayowood Stone Barn is in its versatility. The true beauty isn't just the architecture or history, it is what happens each time a couple makes it their own. Different styles, budgets, families, hometowns, and group sizes all seem to feel at home here. We welcome the many ways they transform this space to convey the message of who they are.

Check out the original floors in the main barn: there are stone bricks down the middle for the carriages going through and wood bricks along the sides to provide softer footing for the horses while awaiting a ride. The Loft floors also boast memories of past barn dances the Mayos had. The floors were painted for carnival games and still show remnants of a cakewalk circle and a "shape version" of shuffle board.
