Hi! We are

Ashley & Hunter

Meet the Thompsons

Hello! We are Hunter and Ashley Thompson. Our story is simple, we met and fell in love over donuts and fighting crime. But really, we met at work and quickly learned we had many things in common and shared life’s important values. Our professional lives, four dogs, two horses, and countless outdoor hobbies keep us on our toes. We found our love to be effortless, and we foraged a partnership to last a lifetime. We got engaged on Christmas Day 2022, and started our wedding planning journey.

At that time, Silver Spur (Formerly the Barn Out West) was just a shell. The Smeenk Family had just started construction before our tour in late January. From the minute we walked in, we knew it was the perfect place for our wedding.

The venue fit seamlessly into the beautiful hillside behind, and it made us feel something special. We were one of the first couples to be married at Silver Spur. Our July day was nothing short of a dream. The barn came to life, as we were surrounded by family and friends to celebrate.

A short time after our wedding, the venue became available for purchase. With the gracious guidance of Ashley’s father Steve, we took a leap of faith and couldn’t turn down the opportunity. Our hope is to share this extraordinary venue and the natural beauty surrounding it with YOU!

We look forward to meeting you, and cannot wait to help you plan your big day.
