Incredible

The Barn at Gibbet Hill was an incredible venue to get married in. They went above and beyond every step of the way. It was very clear that the entire staff truly wanted to make our night as memorable as possible. Going into the process, we weren鈥檛 worried about much from Gibbet Hill, but we could never have expected the level of service we received. There really aren鈥檛 enough words to accurately describe how satisfied we were with this venue, but I do want to try and highlight a few aspects that were especially spectacular.

First, our day of planner Stefani was exactly what you need from an event planner. Our first meeting relieved so much stress during the planning process, because it was clear that Stefani had everything under control. She followed that up with excellent communication throughout the process and handled all of our back and forth on the guest list and menu items with no issue. We couldn鈥檛 have made our night a reality without her.

Secondly, the service from the rest of the staff was incredible. Our wedding party attendant, Jess specifically, was top tier. We never needed anything that evening, because she was already behind us with whatever it was we needed. Additionally, we had to move the ceremony inside last minute due to the weather, and the crew at Gibbet Hill handled it with so much efficiency and discretion our guests had no idea there was a last-minute change happening. After all the dust settled, I think we decided that the inside ceremony might have been even better that way!

Lastly, and as important as anything else for us, the food lived up to every bit of the hype. One of the most common compliments we got from our guests was it was the best food they鈥檇 every had at a wedding. Food was incredibly important to us, and I would say we have very high standards when it comes to our meals. The chef and the rest of the kitchen staff surpassed those already high standards at every stage, hors d鈥檕euvres to dessert. I鈥檓 confident I鈥檒l never enjoy another wedding meal in my future, because I will forever be comparing it to the one we had at Gibbet Hill. Simply, phenomenal.

Well-oiled machine. Book them if you can!

This venue is a well-oiled machine. They know exactly what they're doing, and the best thing you can do is just trust them! We had a 220-person wedding on the most popular wedding weekend of the year (October 8), Gibbet Hill had another wedding that same morning, and the night went SO smoothly and we felt special and taken care of. At the end of our ceremony, during our few moments alone, the staff had set out all of the appetizers for us in the wedding suite, and one of each signature cocktail. Bree Oates was our planner and coordinator, and we felt like family by the end. This venue and its professional staff KNOW how to host a wedding, and we're so glad we chose them. Guests are still talking about the event over a month later, reminiscing! Thank you, Gibbet Hill!

A Perfect Summer Venue

We got married almost three months ago on 7/15/22. We could not have asked for a more phenomenal experience with everyone at The Barn at Gibbet Hill. Dierdre was our coordinator and helped us plan throughout the year leading up to our event. We changed our details and numbers many times and things fluctuated, and she meticulously handled each change. She was a pleasure to work with. We had many strong opinions and Dierdre navigated helping us plan with grace and kept everyone calm right up until we walked down the aisle.

Heather was our bridal party attendant and was phenomenal. Everyone kept telling us prior to the wedding that we wouldn't have time to eat during the wedding. Heather made sure that was not the case. Every time we turned around, there was a plate of appetizers or a fresh drink ready for us to taste. How many couples can say they were able to taste everything at their wedding?

The week of our wedding, a number of family members got COVID and were not able to join us. The team helped us accommodate a last-minute videographer as as well as many last minute shuffles to the seating chart and layout. We never worried for a second that everything wasn't going to be handled.

The food was delicious and the venue itself was stunning. We could not feel more grateful to have picked The Barn at Gibbet Hill.

Gibbet Hill is one of my favorite venues, offering lawn, deck, barn, and restaurant settings for any size wedding. There is power availability for each location (great for musicians/DJs), and the coordinators are great at keeping the day moving along smoothly. I also really enjoy the food! Really great scenery, convenient parking, and modern facilities.
