Jim & Carrie Tryba are the proud husband and wife team behind Tryba's Simply Country Barn. They are a unique, state certified wedding and event venue located in Freedom, Wisconsin. They love to witness all of the special moments that are yet to be celebrated at Tryba's Simply Country Barn. Their History - Jim was a dairy farmer up until 2013, when he decided to sell the cows and move to Freedom. At that time, Carrie was running her business, Simply Country Floral and Decor, out of their home. Space was tight, and she needed her own area to work and grow her business. When they saw the barn, they immediately fell in love. Not only did it have an area for Carrie's Simply Country Floral and Decor, but the upper level was full of history. We walked from end to end, in awe of its beauty. It was then that they looked at each other and thought, "wouldn't this be the perfect space for a wedding?" Since Carrie was already in the wedding business, they decided to expand and create a beautifully rustic, yet renovated venue for weddings and events. Their dream is now a reality, and they would love to share this beautiful venue with you.
