We can talk all day of the amazing history that this plot of land holds; however, we’ll give you the cliffnotes. The beautifully renovated, and rustic barn venue that you see today, used to be a full-functioning farm - the cows, pigs, chickens, you name it; the farm had it all. The Svetlik Family lived off this farm, and in that very house that you see off to the left, upon entering our venue. Both the farmhouse, and barn venue hold countless memories for our family, dating back 70+ years.
We are a tight-knit family, who make each and every business decision together. You may have known us for many years, well before Svetlik Farm came into existence, by visiting our flower & decor shop, The Flower Box, in downtown Schulenburg. The Flower Box is owned and operated by Delores Wick, the daughter of the family who presided many years ago, on Svetlik Farm.
Delores works alongside her three daughters - Jackie, Shelly, and Debbie. These women are also the main operations of Svetlik Farm, managing all aspects of the business.
We have many folks behind the scenes who help keep the Svetlik Farm wheels spinning. We are the definition of a real “family-owned” business. To give you some perspective - from the electrical work, to lawn-mowing, and even building the farmhouse tables and silo bar - all of this work is done by our family.
Our social media is run by Delores’s granddaughters, the venue is cleaned by the daughters and their husbands, and all decisions behind the newly renovated bridal suite were made by the family as well.
From the beginning, our hope for this venue was to preserve the Svetlik name - to share this special place with newly married couples and their families, so they too, can have memories that they will cherish for a lifetime. What better way to honor our beloved family, than to have an abundance of love and celebration under one roof for years to come?
We are dedicated to providing our clients with a seamless, flexible and enjoyable wedding planning experience, and we strive to make booking your wedding venue the least stressful part of your planning. We hope that Svetlik Farm becomes a special part of your family’s story, as it has been for us.
Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts,
The Svetlik Farm Family
