Quellhorst Farm Venue is transformed from a pigsty into a wedding venue

April 18th – WAPAKONETA – Spring is in the air and that means the wedding season can’t be too far back.

The Quellhorst Farm Venue, 07945 State Route 197, Wapakoneta hosted an open house on Sunday to give prospective brides and grooms a glimpse into the unique venue and to talk to caterers and cake vendors.

Pam Quellhorst says they are entering their fourth wedding season and their weekends are filling up quickly.

“Todd and I are going to be married for five years this August, and he already owned the farm. The barn was sitting here with all kinds of things – cars, trash, things like that. So he kept saying we want to clear this up and let’s do something with it start, “said Pam Quellhorst.

They were looking at some sort of drive-through or craft barn, but they knew a wedding venue was the ideal fit for the barn, built in 1908.

“It’s a real Sears Kit barn,” said Pam Quellhorst.

The upper floor can accommodate up to 140 people, while the reception area on the ground floor can accommodate 150 people.

It was a lot of work converting the old pigsty into a wedding venue, spending hours bleaching the wood and building a staircase to the second floor.

“I never thought it would turn into something like this,” said Todd Quellhorst.

The barn has a kitchen, an area for the bride and her group to get ready, and an area for the groom and groomsmen to play pool while they wait.

There is also a room with all sorts of decorations for the bride and groom to choose from for their big day.

“This is our ‘somewhat borrowed’ room and all of this is included in the rental fee. So you can use whatever you want here,” said Pam Quellhorst.

The venue manager-decorator is LaDonna Roys. This is her second season here.

She still gets the chills when the bride and groom see the furnishings decorated for their wedding.

“This is my heart. This is my passion. When I decorate for a wedding and see her coming in the front door, I say, ‘Oh man, I got it right,'” said Roys. “It’s very exciting to me. I love that. I wouldn’t trade that for a million dollars.”
