My husband and I found this venue and knew it was just what our daughter had been wanting for her very small wedding. When we showed it to her, she loved it and decided to increase her guest list because it was so nice and so roomy. Melissa was our event planner, and she and all of the helpers went above and beyond to accommodate every detail that my daughter or I wanted, and even suggested things we didn’t know to ask for. Can’t say enough good things. Loved the experience of planning with them, and the wedding went very smoothly and was stress-free, thanks to these kind folks

My husband and I stumbled across The Barn at Stratford right here on The Knot and we are so thankful we did. It was exactly what we were looking for. Rustic yet elegant and had everything we needed. We booked about a year out from our wedding and spent the last month planning lay out and details to make everything worked. I loved that they have some decor already up, so we really only had to worry about the tables. We used the Bridal suite to get ready and thee was plenty of room for hair-dresser, makeup artist, bride, 4 bridesmaids, two mothers, and two flower girls. The use of the whole space was really exciting, pictures all around the grounds and opening the Meeker Museum during our cocktail hour was a hit! It was all fantastic and Sara and Melissa really took care of us!


The Barn at Stratford was truly our dream venue! It is a beautiful, rustic setting both inside and out and we can’t say more great things about the staff and how our big day turned out! When we first booked the venue with worked with Connie and we were sold! She was so professional and knowledgeable. A few months prior to our wedding Connie retired and we were a little nervous since we felt so comfortable with her. We didn’t need to be! The transition from Connie to Melissa and Sara was seamless! Both of them contacted us directly to introduce themselves and Melissa made sure she scheduled a time to meet with us so we could get to know her and feel confident that we would get all things Connie had discussed with us when we booked. Melissa worked with us so that we could have access to the venue on Friday since our baker was traveling 3+ hours and even helped us find the song we wanted to walk down the aisle to on iTunes! She picked flowers from the grounds and left those and such a kind note to us in the bridal suite (which was such an amazing, comfortable place to get ready!) It was those little touches that made The Barn at Stratford more than just a lovely place to get married and elevated it to a place where we felt like we were much more than just a “customer” and instead felt truly special and cared for by the staff! Our event went perfectly! Melissa coordinated with our photographer, DJ, and catering companies to make sure everyone was on the same page so that our day went off without a hitch. We cannot speak more highly of the professionalism of the staff at The Barn at Stratford! And the beauty of the grounds and venue speak for themselves! Much thanks to Melissa, Sara and the other staff who worked to make our wedding day so amazing!
