I don’t have enough words to say how incredible the team at the Barnett is. They were pivotal in pulling off such a seamless beautiful wedding! Joe was so helpful during the entire planning process and a calming person the day of the wedding. 100 stars!

Amazing venue!

Ashley and Joe made our wedding run so smoothly. We didn’t have a care in the world. We were able to have a beautiful ceremony without stress! They went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect. They offer valet parking services that were so helpful for our older guests. People were stunned at how beautiful the venue was. I would highly recommend this place!

I recently had the pleasure of performing a wedding at Barnett on Washington and was very impressed from the moment I waked in the door. The staff was welcoming and helpful throughout the entire day. If you are looking for a location that provides elegance as well as a cozy atmosphere, this is one to consider. I'm hopeful to find myself back there in 2016 for more ceremonies!
