Firefly Acres is the perfect place to host your wedding. Our 1250 sq ft pavilion can hold up to 100 persons comfortably. Patrons can chose to have their ceremony in front of the beautiful stack stone fireplace, within a charming outdoor cedar constructed gazebo or one of several locations surrounding our alluring pond with its attractive fountain.

White Chairs and 60 inch Round tables for seating up to 100 people are included in your rental cost of $1000.00. In addition, we have attractive rectangular tables for gifts, wedding cakes or a special seating area for the bride and groom. A "State of the Art" sound system is also available for your use.

Sidewalls are available, for an additional cost, on chilly days or when weather threatens. Call for pricing.

Firefly Acres has a variety of wedding menu options available to their guests. Choices range from formal to casual dining, buffets, appetizers or an attractive wedding cake. Bambi can assist in the designing of that perfect meal for any budget or occasion.

If you choose to be the cook, the kitchen is available for a rental fee of $250.00. This fee includes chafing dishes and serving utensils. The commercial ice machine is included in the rental of the kitchen, if you are not renting the kitchen but would still like to rent the ice machine, that is an additional $75.00. A refundable deposit of $200 is required, which will be returned after all the cleanup is finished and there is no damage or missing equipment.

There is a $200.00 charge to rent the pavilion on Friday.

Firefly Acres can tailor any package to suit your specific wedding needs.

The cabins can be rented for out of town guests, or for the bridal party use before the ceremony. They are an ideal place for the bridal couple to stay after the reception. Call for more information, or go to our Cabin Rentals page.

For your convenience, we've assembled a list of local resources for your wedding in PDF format.

Photos and Testimonials

Bambi and Pete,
My family and I just want to thank you so much for all your help with Rachel and Shaun's wedding. It was wonderful. You guys are awesome, when you saw that we had traffic backed up and parking was taking too much time, you jumped right in and helped park cars. Bambi came to the rescue with baby powder and white out ( she knows what I mean ). These things weren't listed in the "rental" of your beautiful home and Pavillion, it was just because you are both wonderful people. I have had a number of calls and some cards commenting on the wedding, both the decorations and the setting. As one friend from out of town put it, "How ever did you find such a hidden jewel as Firefly Acres?" I agree truly have a hidden jewel and the personal warmth and caring you two show to others is a blessing. Believe me, you have two of the biggest promoters you could ask for in Susan and me.. we have sung your praises to everyone. God bless you both and may he bless your endeavours here in our area.

You all are absolutely amazing! Firefly Acres and everything about it is so beautiful thanks to you. Our wedding yesterday was everything we had envisioned and I can't thank you all enough for letting us use your beautiful establishment. Fish Camp was wonderful as well! My bridesmaids and I stayed here the night before the wedding, and my new husband and I enjoyed resting here after. We can't thank you enough! Can't wait to come back for a visit.

Firefly Acres helped make our wedding perfect! We couldn't have found a place more beautiful! Every guest we had commented on how pretty and peaceful it was. Aside from the perfect wedding venue, the cabins are great too! We loved getting in the hottub at night and seeing the stars, then waking up to see all the horses playing in the field. You'll be seeing us again for our 1 year anniversary! Thanks so much
