Tie the Knot in Boone County

As the northernmost county in Kentucky, Boone County is bordered by the Ohio River at the north and stretches south to encompass venues such as Boone County Distilling Company (making authentic bourbon whiskey and also available to host weddings and events), Creation Museum and the famous “Florence Y’all” water tower along I-75 in Florence, Ky. Beyond bourbon and the Bible, the  city of Rabbit Hash also inhabits Boone County. With a population of just over 300 and a dog as the mayor (yes, you read that right!), this small river town is a great day trip for wedding guests looking to explore.

Perhaps its biggest claim to fame is being home to the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport – which is not located in Cincinnati as many people believe! With easy access to the airport for out-of-state guests, as well as a quick drive from Cincinnati, Boone County has several checkmarks in the plus column when deciding where to tie the knot.


The Prickel Barn

14112 Walton Verona Road, Verona, KY 41092



Are you at a point where you can’t cut anyone else from your wedding guest list, but thanks to a large family and lots of friends, the guest list exceeds capacity for many local venues? Then hurry on over to The Prickel Barn, the largest rustic venue in the tri-state area ready to serve you – and your 500 guests.


With nearly 14,000 square feet, the barn also boasts an HVAC system so everyone will stay warm or cool no matter what weather blows your way; and a wooden cross in the barn’s massive window creates a perfect centerpiece for your ceremony or reception.

Imagine this: the setting sun, a picturesque pond, horses idyllically grazing in the background – and the love of your life holding your hand. This fantasy can be yours at Little Britain Carriage House, a 90-acre horse farm that offers outdoor and indoor ceremony and reception options.
