Meet Lindsay!

Meet Lindsay 


Hi there!  I’m Lindsay - the girl behind Heiser Farms Weddings.  Henry, and I were married at Heiser Farms on September 12, 2015.  Shortly after, we moved to the farm on Grand Island and took over the wedding venue.  So Henry is another face behind Heiser Farms Weddings - but he’d rather work behind the scenes!

I am a total planner, organizer, and realist.  Weekdays are spent working in town where I work for an agricultural financial services cooperative. I get the best of both worlds having a career I love and a side hustle being creative.  

I love working with couples and encouraging them to make their wedding about THEM.  I truly believe a wedding should be a reflection of the bride and groom; not what anyone else wants or thinks you should do.  The best part of running a wedding venue?!  Watching two people get married surrounded by beautiful farm scenery, spending the weekend celebrating their marriage, and relaxing with close friends and family.  Meeting and working with so many great wedding vendors isn’t so bad either ;)

Aside from work, you can catch me enjoying lazy Sunday mornings, adventuring somewhere new, or relaxing in Pacific City.  If you’re dying to know more (and may I just say this is so awkward writing about yourself!), here’s five things you might not know about me.

  • I hate coffee.  The smell, the taste, everything!  I’ve never been one to need caffeine in the morning to wake up.  I’ll be sipping on tea, La Croix, and go old H2O.  
  • I love sugar.  I’m probably this biggest sweet tooth you’ll ever meet.  I prefer fruity candy but I won’t turn down chocolate orrr really any dessert as long as it doesn’t have coconut or pineapple.  
  • I’m always joking around.  I believe if you haven’t had a good belly laugh in a while, you’re doing something wrong.  Henry and I are constantly joking around.
  • Pacific City is my favorite place.  Maybe I shouldn’t tell you that because more and more people are finding out about that little gem of a place.  But it’s where Henry and I were engaged, where we go to get away, and it also works out that Henry can fish and crab there.
  • Planning, organizing, and analyzing is what I do - its fun for me.  It makes me so sad when brides don’t enjoy planning their wedding.  I just want to swoop in and plan it all for them so they can be focused on what’s important - marrying your love.

So that's me!  Well, sort of.  As much as I want to fit on this little internet screen.  Thanks for stopping by!



How It All Started - 

My lovely in-laws, John and Kristi, moved to Grand Island in the fall of 1991 when Henry was just a baby.  They had a dream to own a farm and bring Henry and his little sister, Maddie, up in a rural setting.  

After remodeling their 1930's era red barn, they saw it as a center for gatherings and opened their pumpkin patch in October 1994.  Popularity grew and they needed more area to expand so John and Kristi purchased a neighboring farm in 2008.  After renovating much of this farm, including the white barn, the pumpkin patch moved to its new location in 2010.  

Shortly after renovations were complete, a family friend asked if they could have their wedding at the farm.  Simple as that, Kristi started hosting weddings at Heiser Farms in 2011!  

Not long after Henry and I were married at the farm, we took over the wedding venue portion of Heiser Farms.  We hope to continue improving the farm and it’s traditions for many years to come.  

Thanks for stopping by to learn more about us at Heiser Farms.

I could not recommend Heiser Farms enough to a couple looking for venues in the Salem/Portland area. Wow! Seth and I fell in love with the property and the easy accessibility for our guests. Seth and I loved that our reception and ceremony were located at the same venue. Lindsay answered all my questions with grace and she was always willing to help make the process run as smoothly as possible. Lindsay was on site during the day of our wedding assisting us with any questions!

Lindsay, you have been so wonderful. Through the whole experience you were calm and so easy to work with during one of the most stressful seasons. From the start your communication to preview the property, signing the agreement, and day of planning was great and so easy.

"We can't thank you enough for letting us have our wedding at your farm. We both agree it was the best day of our lives. Our family and friends can't stop talking about how beautiful the venue is. The train was an absolute hit. I'm pretty sure just as many adults rode it. Kids at heart! We love the new dance floor also. Thanks for all your support."

-Joel and Nichole

My husband and I, along with both of our families, truly enjoyed our experience with Heiser Farms! It was the perfect farm setting that we were looking for, but the Heiser family made it even better! Having the venue for the whole weekend and not having to worry about getting in and out quickly on Saturday really allows you to enjoy it to the fullest. I highly recommend this venue and working with the Heiser family to anyone!

Lindsay always responded so promptly and never got tired or impatient with my endless questions…We couldn't have imagined a more wonderful wedding. Our guests kept complimenting on how absolutely beautiful the venue was and we continue to get compliments about how perfect and fun the day was. Thank you so much for making our day so incredibly special. You made the entire process and experience so easy and enjoyable. We can't thank you enough!

We can’t thank you enough for letting us use your beautiful venue for our wedding!  It was a absolute fairytale.  We appreciate all your help throughout the wedding planning process and the day of (like giving me the shoes off your feet so I could run through the sparkler send off!).  You two are the sweetest.
