Our Canvas, Your Wedding
Country gone vintage
We can provide a country gone vintage look, which may include styles that cater to elegant formal, rustic chic, western, shabby chic, bohemian, industrial, French country, and anything in between. Photography options are limitless, as you have access to the gardens by the house or the breathtaking views from the fields, barns, and the Sierra Mountains.
The Gansbergs will ensure that every detail is flawless, so enjoy our timeless views and soak in each moment of your special day.
We offer setup and cleanup for the ceremony and wedding reception. As well as, setup and cleanup if you get ready at the house. The Gansberg house is ideal and convenient for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready. There are two enchanting bridal rooms to get dressed and use for your photos. Also, there is a small bathroom on the enclosed porch to use while getting ready. The indoor sun porch has the brightest lighting for your hair and makeup artist. It includes a table and a highchair for their convenience. You can help yourself to the farmhouse kitchen. It is filled with dishes and glassware for eating and snacking while getting ready for your special day.
Flower filled Gardens & Charming charcuterie boards
The flower filled gardens provide a lovely backdrop for photos before or after your ceremony. The naturally paved dance floor is an 18x18 area placed under string lights to dance the night away, while the DJ is shaded under our pergola. There are chandeliers located in the one hundred year old stone barn and on the two outside top windows (one in the front and one in the back of the barn). After the ceremony, the stone barn is perfect to cool off from the hot summertime air and enjoy some appetizers served on three vintage wine barrels.
Charcuterie boards look delicious with our different shaped wooden stump rounds, which add height to the yummy display. A romantic display of the bride and groom’s dessert delicately rests on a vintage buffet table and individual desserts for guests are served on vintage glass cake stands. There is an all-inclusive marble top coffee bar provided by our family with all the fixings for a hot cup of Joe for when you get a chill in the night. In this barn there is a rustic farm table that holds gifts and a card box (different choices are included). Lastly, in the stone barn there is an old door that can hold many pictures of the bride and groom for your guests to admire.
stunning New Haybarn & Antique accents
Our newly built haybarn holds two hundred guests for eating. The barn includes rectangular farm tables that our family built and round, white farmhouse tables, which altogether seat two hundred guests. You will choose and rent your choice of chairs.
Everyone has different tastes in chairs, but all types and colors look great with our tables.
There is an old buggy/carriage for presents, flowers, or a fun photo. We have a diverse selection of signs that include special sayings for weddings and an old window that is perfect for assigned table seating.
Our 69 Ford pickup truck offers a unique and special entrance for the bridesmaids to approach the ceremony. After their arrival, all eyes are on the bride as she saunters down the hayfield for a two minute walk.
There are several options for the ceremony arbor/arch that include rustic oak twisted branches in the shape of an arch, a simple and traditional wooden arch, a wooden hexagon arch, a willow branch tepee for a bohemian feel, or you can keep it simple with two whiskey barrels to hold flower arrangements. Our cowhides look great between the barrels or under one of the arch options.
We have a fire pit with firewood to keep you warm after the sun goes down, and feel free to munch on some smores after a late night of dancing, or use it as a fast lighter for your sparkler send off. If the fire pit isn’t enough to keep you warm, you can snuggle under our standing heaters located beneath the sixteen foot lean-to that is attached to the new barn. This hangout area is completely furnished with comfortable couches and blankets to relax and socialize.
The outdoor grain bin bar is our biggest hit, especially with licensed bartenders Todd and Luke Gansberg serving you all night. The rustic lit bar will hold 4 kegs at a time. Fancy drinks and bride and groom specialty drinks are served in our mason jar mugs.
Dining and Decor
Your choice of food vendor may use our old wooden plank for serving buffet style. We have a romantic sweetheart table with chairs that we can decorate especially for you, while you’re the center of attention during your toast. Your bridal party has plenty of table choices and can sit wherever they like. Vintage glasses can be used for your wedding party if you choose to use them. Our gold chargers look beautiful and make plastic dinnerware look more elegant.
Outside we have two dispensers that contain lemonade and water for your guests to help themselves. We have many options for your decorating styles, including white cheese cloth table runners, vintage bottles, wooden stump rounds, deer sheds, lanterns with candles, hurricane candle holders for floating candles, brass candlesticks, and mercury glass votives. We love to decorate, so you choose the style and we set it up. To help get guests on time to the ceremony, we use a 6-seat Polaris Ranger. It travels from the DG parking lot to the venue. Walkers love the lit path and breathtaking views of the horses and mountains.
Two Sani- Hut bathrooms are provided with a sink. Feel free to have your own bathroom trailer delivered if a Sani-Hut is not your thing.
Lastly, we can recommend photographers, caters, DJs, wedding planners, and rental companies.
*If you have over two hundred guests, there will be an additional charge of $500.00. You may need to rent a tent to hold the extra guests for their eating area, if there are weather concerns. Keep in mind that we only have enough tables and decorations to host two hundred guests.
