About 10 years ago, an East Coast city girl got engaged to a local Valley farmer boy. But when Lauren and Daniel Westra went on the hunt for the perfect wedding location, their search came up short. So they took matters into their own hands and created a dream venue—Westwood Barns. They brought life back into the 1940s barn and added all the details necessary to create the wedding they’d envisioned. A near-decade later, they’ve hosted many weddings and special events at the Barn with the same ambience that captivated them years before. After traveling to bigger cities and participating in unique events and workshops, the Westras were inspired to create more experiential events at Westwood Barns—events that will also celebrate our area’s artisanal talents and the rich agriculture of the Valley.
