On Tuesday, Ben and Kelly Woodall told the commissioners they planned to live in the home on the property fronting Drake Road and remodel an existing barn for weddings and other gatherings.
Kelly Woodall said they had been meeting with neighbors about any concerns with their plans.
“That’s a huge concern for us,” Kelly Woodall said.
The rezoning was conditionally approved on Nov. 21 by the Warren County Regional Planning Commission.
Michelle Tegtmeier, the county’s chief zoning inspector, said the wedding center project would be brought back to the commissioners for approval.

Wedding centers are permitted in Warren County through a conditional use permitting process.
Neighbors unsuccessfully fought plans for the Stone Valley Meadows wedding center now operating on Robinson-Vail Road in Franklin Twp.
At the December meeting on the Jones farm project, neighboring farmers James and Marry Lou Stephens expressed concerns about when they spread manure in the spring and noise, trash and light issues from the school and Urbancrest Baptist Church, north on Drake Road.
Rural Zoning Commissioner Fred Grimm asked the Woodalls “if they were sure that the county needs another wedding venue,” according to the minutes.
In response to questions, Woodall said they planned to find a different market and offer places for “people to gather,” sometimes at no cost.
