“We could not have selected a better venue to have our special day! All of our friends and family keep telling us it was the best, most fun wedding they’ve ever been too and I truly believe that’s because of the venue and the staff at the Barn. The venue manager Melissa was absolutely phenomenal and she was the calm to my crazy. Melissa and her team were so accommodating to everything we needed. They kept things in order, if something was happening that was stressful for me—they took care of it for me, if things started going left—they steered it back to the right. I never had to worry about anything because they always had my back! The venue is beautiful, the ceremony was beautiful and the reception was beautiful. The whole day was so magical and I couldn’t have done it without Melissa and her team! 10/10 recommend this venue if you’re planning on having a mid-size wedding!” – Jamelia A. 2022

We just got married here and I can’t begin to explain how amazing Melissa and the staff at The Barn are. They made sure everything was what we wanted and made our day perfect. It is a beautiful venue. Every person at our wedding said how beautiful it was. There is also an option to add on a tour of the Meeker House during your cocktail hour which our guests loved!” – Heidi S. 2021

Melissa was great to work with, so was the crew the day of set up. They were all so helpful and organized. Melissa was able to help me with some recommendations i was struggling to find vendors for, and she also helped me by letting us use a few things at the barn to decorate saving me money. She did everything she said she would the venue was perfect in every way. Highly recommend using them!”  – Wendy H. 2022
