Meet the Elkins

Miranda Elkins lives with her family on the Elkins Grove farm. The story of Elkins Grove, the barn venue, all started with a 6th grade dance she hosted in a tool shed. This initial event sparked Miranda’s interest in owning and running her very own event venue. She finds immense satisfaction in seeing an event through from start to finish, taking pride in the end result.

Miranda’s main goal is to help her clients have an amazing experience that enables them to have the wedding they always dreamed of. Miranda will give as much or as little wedding planning assistance as her clients are seeking. She has relationships with several other wedding vendors and can help you find the right fit.

Elkins Grove left me speechless. Everything was perfect from our rehearsal to the big day! They have everything you could possibly need and more. The outside area with the benches and the pergola were so beautifully set up for our nighttime April wedding… It was absolutely breathtaking! Thank you, Miranda & Chad for helping make our day everything we dreamed of and more! Hands down the best venue around!!

Our daughter and son-in-law were very happy to get married at Elkins Grove. Very beautiful venue, very reasonable price. I got it all week and the next day, I finished cleaning up. Her boys helped me out, transportation and clean-up also. Miranda & Chad let the girls & the guys use the house. I love Elkins Grove, highly recommend this venue for any events. Miranda goes over the top for any of your needs. So glad we found this venue. Had wedding & rehearsal dinner there also.
