Where It All Began

The Annex is an extension of the 300-acre property known as Omaha Ranch. The ranch has been in Vince Rossitto’s family for decades. When he first took Veronica there (his girlfriend at the time), she fell in love with the peacefulness and wildlife. The ranch became the couple’s weekend getaway close to home.

Over time, Vince and Veronica became more serious, and Vince later proposed at a special spot on the ranch where the buffalo currently reside. Naturally, the couple decided that the ranch would be the perfect spot to be married as well. Because they wanted their wedding to be a weekend affair, they needed a place to house their closest family and friends. Hence, the inspiration for The Annex.

 

At the time, the only living quarters on the property was a 4-bedroom lodge built by Vince’s dad, Lou. The idea of The Annex started as a bed & breakfast—just a place to sleep more people. But as Lou, Vince, and Veronica began drawing out their ideas, the bed & breakfast soon evolved into the 10,000 sq. ft. wedding & events venue now known as The Annex.

Every aspect of The Annex has been inspired, built, and designed by Lou, Vince, and Veronica. It’s truly a “labor of love.”
