Wren Farm is an event venue located in Mechanicsburg, Ohio. We are located just 30 minutes west of Columbus and 45 mins northwest of Dayton. We host events in our historic barn and grounds. The barn is surrounded by 10 acres of meadows and green fields. Though it is just a mile away from the center of town, the large grounds give it a peaceful, isolated ambience. There is both indoor event space as well as an outdoor event space, and it works well for intimate celebrations or grand affairs.
We are Elizabeth & Brian Smith, owners of Wren Farm, a family homestead and farm turned event venue that has been hosting weddings and events since 2015. In 2013 we fled the city, seeking wide open spaces and a home with history, and we fell in love with this farm. Elizabeth, a lawyer by trade and Brian an IT Program Manager, live at the farm with their 3 children. While we still work our full-time jobs, we found ourselves drawn to the creativity and collaboration of the wedding and event industry. We LOVE sharing the story of this farm with others, and seeing the farm live on in the story of those that start their next beginning here. Along with two event coordinators, Brian and Elizabeth enjoy working with couples on their happiest days.
Located in southern Champaign County, approx. 30 mins west of Columbus and 45 mins northeast of Dayton, Wren Farm boasts seasonal flower fields, an original 2 story barn with 40-foot cathedral loft and a restored 1845 brick farmhouse.

Wren Farm is truly such a uniquely beautiful venue for weddings. It’s spacious and allows plenty of room for creativity and room for guests. I am truly so happy that we chose to start our forever here. Guests complimented the barn through out the night as well. The staff was amazing as well. I felt like our Wren Farm Wedding Coordinator Cassie should have been in my bridal party (even though we just met)!
I, literally, cannot rave enough about how INCREDIBLE this venue is, let alone the AMAZING people whom help to run it. Cassie helped us from viewing, reviewing, and viewing again, to answering all questions comments and concerns faster than lighting through a variety of contact methods. Never once did we feel as if we were anything less than the most important couple they were hosting a wedding for. And Jillian whom helped coordinate everything was beyond perfect! From the final walk through and arranging, and rearranging things for us from before through the day of, she was a blessing to have. She ensure that everything ran smoothly, even when it began to rain, and made sure that everything was perfect. Not only is she a beautiful addition to your helping hands, but just a wonderful personality and very thoughtful and caring that your day is the best, ever. We couldn’t be happier to have started our marriage literally anywhere else. I seriously cannot praise them enough!
We had seen pictures of Wren Farm via my partner's social media a few years prior. I knew just from seeing pictures of Wren Farm that was the place we were going to tie the knot. We reserved the date sight unseen about a year prior to our wedding. The staff made everything seamless when it came to wedding planning. The wedding planning process is very stressful, but all of the staff, whether it be Cassie, Hailey, or Jillian, eased our fears. Our coordinators were communicative and knowledgeable throughout wedding planning. They helped us with our wedding timeline, making sure that we stuck to our timeline, and that we stayed organized, no easy task considering that we were planning the wedding from Brooklyn, NY! The wedding day was absolutely fantastic. It is the little things that make Wren Farm so special - the vintage couch for photo-ops, the "kids play area," cornhole, the silo area can turn into a bar, and really, anything you want or need for your day can be customized. The barn was so beautiful lit up in lights and to top it off, we had a stunning sunset which looked incredible from the second floor of the barn. Also, it is worth mentioning that we are a LGBTQ couple, and Elizabeth made sure that our day was as special as anyone else's. All of the vendors that Elizabeth recommended were fantastic and affirming towards us. I would not change a single thing about my wedding. Thank you, Wren Farm, for making sure that our day was above and beyond our wildest dreams!
