I attended a wedding at Trendy Acres and yes the venue is rustic and beautiful. The location is pretty convenient from Madison. I would have to agree with the other reviewers that the BIG downfall to this place is the lady owner. She is a deputy sheriff, who proudly parks her squad car in the driveway...yuck. No one wants to look, think or talk about law enforcement before or during their special day, nor do guests. Seriously this woman needs to GET OVER HERSELF. She has her walkie talkie and watched everybody during the reception!! It's like that annoying kid in school who's gonna tell on you for something stupid. Everytime I went to just use the bathroom she would make eye contact with me...for what?? You should be in your dumb little house. Lady you need to not take yourself so seriously, you ruin people's experience with your demeanor whether you realize it or not. These receptions are not about you and your stupid day job.

There are ton's of party barns around the Madison area, DONT GO HERE. Seriously unless you like the whole cop vibe...again yuck yuck yuck. She should pick a different weekend job that doesn't involve being hawk.

***Trendy Acres is set in a beautiful country setting. The barn is quite clean (for a barn) but it can get pretty hot and sweaty in there - they should have more fans to spread around. Everyone was all sweaty!

**Here's the thing....both owners of this property are POLICE OFFICERS and really like to take their work (and attitude) home with them. The guests (myself included) were *watched* the entire evening. If you went for a walk, you were followed. If you went to your car, you were followed. You can't help but catch the *police attitude at all times. I don't understand what they were looking for - everyone was very well-behaved. If you are going to rent this place - you should consider how this effects the atmosphere of your wedding. The fun police are in FULL effect. The woman who runs the show was rude to the bride and myself as well as other guests. Even the catering staff was complaining about her!

All in all - its a beautiful setting for a ceremony/reception. However, I would never recommend this venue simply because of the owner/operators of the business. No one likes to be talked down to - especially on their special day. Dealing with these people is like one long traffic stop - do yourself a favor and avoid the police with attitudes!

what we liked: no farm equip, animals, pretty plants, no vendor restrictions & we could bring our own beer, wine and champ.
We had several things that seemed unreasonable before and during our rental.
1. A last min change: no smoking on the entire grounds. Guests walked very far to their cars, & were chased down by the owners and told to stop. The guests offered to smoke IN their cars, but that was also unacceptable to the owner because someone at a previous party smoked weed. (we weren't!)
2. She decided we could not leave our rented linens at the barn due to "liability issues". This was last minute- as in a week before the wedding, after we had arranged the payment of delivery and pickup with the rental companies. This also severely limited our car's cargo space, and extended our clean up time. there was no warning or language regarding this.
3. We ordered cocktail tables, but she would not cover them because they were not hers. We had two uncovered tables at the reception.
4. She told my father to start cleaning up at 10pm when the contract said we have the place till 11pm. I was heartbroken to see my dad and guests tearing down at 10!
5. I saw a guest pick up poop so no one would step in it.
6. She accused a guest of intentionally breaking the soap dispenser! It's true that a guest broke via thumb BY ACCIDENT. because there was a pen under the sink, she said someone had intentionally stabbed it because it didn't work. She charged us for the replacement in full, and even said that she would't have charged us if it wasn't intentional! rude
7. She didn't let the DJ play the last song because it was slightly after 10:30. so much for memories..
Unfortunately for me, the memories that are supposed to be wonderful are crushed, and I'll never get them back. I feel horrible, angry and sad about how we were treated. I will be trying to forget her demeanor for a very long time. Please, for the sake of your memories, go somewhere else for your reception.

Great place to have a ceremony, reception and dance! It is one our guest are still talking about. Very unique and entertaining! We didn't want to spend a lot on our wedding, and we got a million dollar wedding at a budget price.
