Jorgensen Farms' barn venue took first place in the Reception, Rustic/Barn category.

For those seeking a picture-perfect rustic wedding, readers overwhelmingly agree that Westerville’s Jorgensen Farms Historic Barn is simply unparalleled.

In 1992, Val Jorgensen—inspired by generations of family members committed to Midwest farming—opened a farm of her own to grow, cultivate and explore with her four sons. In 2002, she opened Jorgensen Farms to the public. Since that time, this 100-acre working organic farm has become an incredibly sought-after wedding destination for couples seeking the perfect blend of homespun charm and upscale polish. The photogenic, historic farm is divided into four unique, customizable and impeccably-maintained areas: The Potting Shed and Patio, featuring a cozy brick patio constructed from reclaimed materials; the rustic charm of The Arena; the Main Barn’s 1800s post-and-beam structure, a versatile space perfect for for dancing, light bites, seating and more; and the Flower Field, an expansive half-acre full of seasonally blooming flower beds, as well as virtually unlimited seating and scenic photography backdrops.

Don’t be fooled by the intentionally simple aesthetic; Jorgensen Farms packs more included amenities into its rental packages than most traditional venues, including a wedding coordinator, set-up and tear-down of tables, chairs and linens for up to 250 guests; complimentary parking and attendants, and much more. Even more on-site services are available to seamlessly add on: Catering, floral design and specialty linens balance pastoral presentation with professional polish. From guest favors to lawn games, no request is too big or small.

The venue’s 40-by-60-foot historical greenhouse at the farm’s adjacent Oak Grove venue (runner-up in our Reception, Garden/Greenhouse category) offers an Instagram-worthy open-air option, with the nearby Cottage and Main Hall at the ready with modern comforts like air conditioning and Wi-Fi.

Whatever corner of Jorgensen Farms you choose to say your “I do’s,” the view will always be picture-perfect.
