The Grand Little Barn

This magnificent little marvel of a barn is the embodiment of Old World, European charm, embellished from the ground to the tip of its spires with antique hardware, doors with working transoms, leaded glass windows, Civil War Era American stained glass, centuries old European stained glass, and exquisite antique tin ceiling tiles – patinaed to perfection! Our setting is elegantly rustic, our amenities modern. With both heating and air conditioning, you and your guests will celebrate comfortably. There are two restrooms in the barn, one being accessible from the patio area. We are fully handicap accessible, and WIFI is available.

  Up to 200 guests total under roof, 500 guests with tenting

Outdoor Spaces

Enter through our century-old wrought iron gates onto our long and winding wooded drive. Just around the bend awaits something special, Hamilton County’s hidden treasure… Artisan Acres Estate….serene, secluded, sublimely storybook.  This estate provides a number of naturally elegant outdoor spaces for your ceremony and reception.

The owner’s passion for growing gorgeous flowers on her cut-flower farm creates a spectacular beauty alongside the barn.   Dahlia blooms dance above the field which is framed in lovely Victorian-Era wrought iron fencing. Rows of fragrant lavender run to the sunset, providing a unique photo opportunity, reminiscent of Provence – tres magnifique, tres romantique! 

No need for grandma to swelter in the sun during your outdoor ceremony on our estate. Our centuries old, magnificent white oak generously shades your guests from late afternoon sun while providing the perfect backdrop for your ceremony.

  200 + ceremony seating

The Winding

Wooded Path

This dreamy wooded path winds its way from just behind the barn, back to The Grand Oak, The Pasture, and a lovely wooded cocktail area.  Wind your dinner tables down this fairytale path for the most unique wedding in Indiana!  Let us show you how on a tour.

Le Petit Grain

Dispensary Bar

We designed this charming bar to add a touch of elegant whimsy to your cocktail hour. In keeping with our Carpenter Gothic-style barn, it is a most unique serving station.  Petite and portable, we can place it most anywhere – you decide!   

The Roundabout Patio

This is another fabulous antique brick patio area that lies directly in front of the barn.  A versatile space, it’s ideal for ceremony, cocktails, dancing, or a late-night Ritz Charles food truck!   

The “Living” Room and “Outdoor Ballroom”

This incredible space surrounds the barn on two sides.  The floor is paved with 30,000 meticulously selected and artfully hand-laid antique street bricks, creating a one-of-a-kind patio with a genuine Old World feel.  The area is enveloped by dense forest as well as a highly ornate 150-year-old cast iron fence that originally graced the front yard of a federal courthouse. It boasts elaborate floral designs as well as an intricate cast iron basket-weave base. Artisan ironwork at its finest!  There is no other photo backdrop like it. 

The ceiling, a gorgeous leafy canopy, allows just the right amount of sparkling dappled sunlight and/or moonlight to shine through.  This area is a fabulous space for lounge furniture seating and cocktails as it also includes our Petit Grain Dispensary Bar.  With uniquely delicate twinkle lights floating from the barn to the towering trees, it becomes an enchanting dance floor.  Prefer a ceremony space that is outdoors while retaining a feeling of seclusion? This space serves as an excellent alternative ceremony setting – all the feels of an outdoor chapel sanctuary or naturally occurring amphitheater.  

Our Outdoor Ballroom allows your guests to either dine or dance in an elegant outdoor space, surrounded by trees while under cover of a grand display of antique ceiling tiles and exquisitely sparkling chandeliers.  We get so many compliments on our special chandeliers! Artisan Acres Estate blurs the line between indoors and outdoors for couples who love a natural setting with an upscale, elegant feel.

Our Floral Offerings: 
Take your florals to the next level! We make every effort to grow seasonal blooms that harmonize with your color palette. We specialize in dahlias, lavender, and Itoh peonies. We lovingly labor over our specialty Artisan Sweet Pea flowers, grown with an Old World method that produces a bloom and stem quality in a league all their own.  We also grow a number of other cut flowers and fillers. Your florist can incorporate our field fresh blooms into your arrangements, or even select spriggy bits from the wild side of the estate, making your floral statement extra-fresh and extra-special!
