A LOVE STORY CONTINUED

This magnificent space, originally known as The Old Ventress Farm, holds a storied past that dates back to its inception in 1914, closely following the construction of the barn in 1907. This cherished venue is a living testament to generations of love and commitment, a place where family history and cherished memories intertwine. With each passing era, it has been entrusted to a new generation who has embraced its legacy with honour and pride. 

 

Today, we stand as stewards of The Old Ventress Farm, humbled by the privilege of continuing its legacy and becoming a cherished landmark for countless new love stories.

From Family Farm Dreams to Reality

My name is Steph and my part of this story begins on my family farm, where the seeds of a dream were sown during a lively discussion about our future. The idea of building a wedding barn was tossed into the conversation, and it struck a chord that resonated deeply with me.

That dream never faded; it simmered in the background, a constant presence in my thoughts. Over the past 12 years, I dedicated my time to our family-owned Ford dealership, eventually taking over ownership with my brother. During those years, I also welcomed two beautiful children into the world. However, as I returned to work, especially after the birth of my second child, something didn't quite feel right. The dealership no longer felt like the place where I belonged.

 

IIt was time for a change. My husband, Alex and I engaged in countless discussions about what that change could mean for our family. We pondered the possibilities, weighing the feasibility of bringing my long-held dream to life. In 2023, I set a goal: to explore the possibility of turning this dream into a reality, setting a clear direction for myself without necessarily taking the leap just yet. Little did I know that on July 4th, I would become the proud owner of a piece of property that would breathe life into this cherished dream. And thus, The 1914 Venue was born!
