Well, not "in town", so to speak, but within a half hour's drive from Macon. I'm talking about The Wedding Barn at L'Horne in Byron. This is run by a friend from high school, (once a Northside Eagle, ALWAYS a Northside Eagle!), Anna, and her husband. They are still in the process of finishing the event barn, which sits on 63 acres of beautiful hilly and wooded fields. Everything should be up and running by February 2017.
I recently got the pleasure of touring the location and let me tell you, this is not an old rickety barn formerly inhabited by four legged creatures! This is a brand new barn with a great concrete floor. There is a large center section for your ceremony, reception, or just a party. To the left is a heated and cooled area that includes: prep area for the caterer; a bride's room, with separate entrance, also connects directly to a large women's restroom; the men's restroom; and finally the groom's room. To the right is another area, again for whatever you want to hold there - sit down dinner, dancing, etc. A large deck will wrap around this structure with beautiful views.
Outside is a pole barn that will also be set up for outdoor, but covered, ceremonies. But if getting married under the trees is what you seek, there is a perfect spot for that as well in a little valley behind the barn.
Anna also showed me the antique furniture, large mirrors, lighting, etc. that is going in to the place. This will be the epitome of "rustic elegance." Renting this location will also include some of the tables and chairs needed for the ceremony and reception.
