A Country Setting

Trimble County couple offer
rustic venue for getting hitched

Lazy Daisy Farm lets bridal couples
break from the traditional

MILTON, Ky. (June 2016) – Kelly Nichols has always wanted to start her own business. When she and her husband had the idea to open a wedding venue on their farm, she knew the timing was right.
Kelly and Randy Nichols have recently opened The Wedding Barn at their Lazy Daisy Farm, located at 504 Mt. Carmel Rd. in Milton, Ky. It’s the perfect spot for that not-so-traditional wedding or for couples who want the ambiance of a country setting for their special day.
The couple held a grand opening on April 23, showcasing what they have to offer couples looking to tie the knot. Several vendors were on hand with their goods: The Sweeter Life served up cupcakes, Blush on Main and The French Tulip had bouquet and floral samples, Dittos on Main displayed decorating and gift ideas, and Bob & Kevin’s BBQ dished up samples of their catered food with all the fixins.

Kelly Nichols and her husband, Randy, offer unique barn weddings at Lazy Daisy Farm.

Nichols has been a minister for more than 30 years. She got the idea to open The Wedding Barn after officiating at her nephew’s wedding, which was held in a barn in central Indiana.
She has her first wedding scheduled for June, the same month she will assume a part-time pastor position at Mt. Carmel Untied Methodist Church. Her husband works as a heavy equipment mechanic, and both want this to become a “full-time job,” she said.
Both are from Hendricks County, Ind., west of Indianapolis. Randy’s mother was from the Milton area and moved north to Indiana before he was born.
The Nichols moved to Trimble County because of his job, she said. Two years ago, they purchased the farm on Mt. Carmel Road known as the Lazy Daisy Farm. Nichols referred to it as “a self-sufficient farm.” They raise horses and a few chickens.
Amenities at The Wedding Barn include a private bride’s room where the bride and her party can get ready. There is also a bar where the guys can hang out, said Nichols. The venue was constructed from an old existing tobacco barn that the couple converted into a unique space for weddings, receptions, reunions or anniversary parties.
The Wedding Barn can seat 150 to 160 guests, and there is an area for a dance floor. The Nichols provide tables, chairs and port-a-johns. Couples can rent the venue by the half day or full day. “We try to be affordable,” she said.

There is also an arched outdoor area perfect for nuptials or photo opportunities. Nichols said she will see to it that assistance is provided for anyone with mobility issues.
Nichols can suggest nearby businesses or individuals who provide wedding services, such as the ones who attended the grand opening. In addition, Photos by Jordan and Charla’s Designs will serve clients at her venue. The latter business is owned by Charla Elmore, who provides interior design services for any couple who may have their decorations but not have the time needed to set up for the wedding.
There is ample space at The Wedding Barn for both a reception and wedding. Nichols thought getting into the wedding business would be “fun to do.”
