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!Sent on 11/24/2019

Lovely Historical Venue
As a wedding planner, having a venue with a great staff plays a huge part in how well everyone can execute a great event for our clients. I enjoyed holding a ceremony and reception at The Barnett this past August and we loved the space and staff. Joe is so much fun to work with and so efficient and effective. The venue is a historical gem in the city and a wonderful venue for an intimate and elegant wedding. I look forward to my next wedding here.Sent on 09/10/2019

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!
