Akron Ohio's Newest

Wedding Venue

Now Booking for September 2021

The Venue

We are an all-new Akron Ohio wedding venue being built from the ground up.

The barn, perched on a hill overlooking 92 acres of unspoiled farmland and trees, will offer a beautiful backdrop for outdoor weddings and gatherings. The barn itself will have all of the modern amenities with none of the boring features. We’ve thought hard about each and every detail and you will be blown away. From the striking black exterior to the towering timber interior, the Birdseye does not disappoint.

Whether you dream of a winter wonderland wedding or a leave the doors open summer blowout, the answer is yes. We provide the setting and you create the memories.

Our Story

Hi! I’m Dean and this is my wife Kris.

The Birdseye Barn at Western Star is our baby (I guess technically our 4th baby). We absolutely love weddings! Honestly, there is no better day, no better occasion and our goal is to make sure you have as much fun as we did at ours.

The Birdseye Barn is a dream come true 25 years in the making. Planning our own wedding in 1995, we both thought that running an event center was just a fantastic idea. What could be better than being around happy couples all year long. One glorious party after another.

The Birdseye sits right in the heart of historic Western Star. One of the original seven villages of Norton, Western Star is home to us and we want to share the magic with you. And Birdseye? Well that was easy. Paying homage to Birdseye Norton, Norton’s namesake seemed overly appropriate and well overdue.

The facility is under construction with a finish date of July 10, 2021. Why July 10th? Well that’s because our first baby, Anne is going to be the very first wedding at the Birdseye. We couldn’t be more excited. It’s like everything has come full circle for us and we are rushing to get it all done. 2020 put us way behind on the project like so many other things, but we’ve got a plan and we’ve got a promise so here we go!

As you might imagine, our daughter has assured us that it will be ready by July 10th, but we want to have some cushion just in case there are some landscaping or other finishing touches that might still need done. Please contact us at your earliest convenience to reserve a date as we’re anticipating a significant amount of interest from throughout northeast Ohio once the word gets out.

We look forward to hosting your big day and we are now booking for September 2021.
