Our story

I’m Jeanne, that’s my husband Jay, and our five amazing children. We purchased our barn property in Sept. of 2004. We have a love for older homes and were so excited and nervous to own our first home. This venture has served two purposes –  to provide extra income for our family and to give our children some work to do. Jay and I both grew up on dairy farms and realized the importance of installing a good “work ethic” in our children.

This venture has been a labor of love, with the whole family being quite involved with the work, along with extended family, and many long hours, to arrive at where the barn is today. It can no longer be said, as a friend had at one time stated to us, “These big barns are nothing but dinosaurs with not much use for them.” We are thrilled that we have found a new use for this dinosaur.

We desired also from the beginning that this event barn venture would spill over into the community to benefit many, economically and socially. Therefore, we have been privileged to host junior proms for our local school, and also donating the barn for local church youth group  fundraisers.



Jeanne is a people person, she loves to talk and work with you. Her favorite wine is sauvignon blanc, her favorite hobby is florals and she's inspired by all things french country.



Anne is a vital part of things going off without a hitch. She's inspired by nature, her favorite wine is Moscato, and her hobbies include reading and organizing.

We are so thankful that we chose Gatherings for our ceremony and reception. It made decorating a breeze, the photos breathtaking, and the atmosphere cozy! We were blown away by Jeanne's desire to see our vision and help make it possible. She worked tirelessly to make us feel comfortable and our big day flow smoothly.

We held our wedding here at Gatherings on the Ridge and have received SO many compliments on it, as well as several people asking what/where this is after seeing our pictures. Jeanne is great to work with - so creative and was so sure to make sure everything is in order for your big day. Our wedding went very smoothly!
