You and your guests will celebrate in style!


The Barn is the idyllic countryside setting for your wedding. We help you create the beautiful and stress-free wedding you’ve always wanted.

The Ceremony Setting of
Your Dreams

The Barn offers an outdoor setting for your wedding ceremony. Our garden area is surrounded by beautiful gardens and stunning views, making it the perfect setting for an outdoor ceremony, cocktail hour and your wedding photos. Outdoor seating is at your discretion. Due to the unique country atmosphere many couples choose non-traditional seating such as: bails of hay or benches. Simply discuss the many options with our Event Coordinator to come up with the perfect outdoor setting for your ceremony.

If it happens to rain on the day of your wedding, the ceremony can be moved indoors with no stress added.
