Where did Jordan and Derek decide to say their 'I dos' at Red Oak Valley?

The Red Barn Dock was their pick, perfectly positioned beside the Red Barn and offering stunning lake views. It’s not just another barn wedding location; it radiates romance. Set against nature’s backdrop with mature trees and a panoramic view of the rolling hills, it's the very essence of Red Oak Valley.

Simply the cherry on top.
