    Beautiful, unique, and absolutely perfect!

    I could have never imagined a more perfect day than how my wedding turned out at Barr Mansion. I did the wedding planning myself, but utilized Barr Mansions’s day-of-coordinator, Becki Phelps, to execute the wedding day. I can’t thank Becki enough for all her patience with me leading up to the wedding day. She was patient and kind and was able to answer all of the detailed questions I had. Becki was absolutely amazing at taking the vision I had and turning it into a reality. I was nervous that since I had done the detailed wedding planning myself, that on the wedding day I would be bombarded with questions by different vendors, or would need to be involved in making sure everything went to plan. However, from the time I showed up at the venue until the time I left, Becki had everything absolutely under control. The entire day was seamless and I was able to fully focus on enjoying the day without having to worry about a single thing.

    The food was phenomenal! We served our dinner family style and had beef tenderloin and white veggie lasagna as our entrees, with spiced carrots and roasted brassicas as our sides. The only thing I probably could have asked to be different on the wedding day was to have more food. When I went around to each of the tables to greet the guests, I noticed that all of the plates and serving dishes were completely licked clean. I suppose that speaks to how great the food was; I just hope my guests were able to get enough food to be full. Our desserts were also fantastic! We had an apple cake with dulce de leche frosting for the wedding cake and then pumpkin swiss rolls as our secondary dessert. I was so sure we would have way too much dessert and a ton of leftovers, but my guests completely wiped out all of the desserts too! Everyone was raving about the cake and especially the pumpkin rolls. I liked that all of our food, including the desserts, were unique and very well made.

    The facilities and grounds were also wonderful. We were lucky to have 70 degree weather, so we had the doors to the farmstead open during our ceremony. It was absolutely breathtaking. The grounds outside were lush and green, even though it was February, and we had some beautiful photos taken all over the grounds. The bartenders did a phenomenal job as well. We had vodka soda and old fashioned cocktails as our signature drinks and everyone absolutely loved the old fashioned. So much so that we ran through all of our bourbon at cocktail hour and had to send someone out on a liquor run before dinner! We had our dinner and reception in the ballroom and the space was perfect for our approximately 150 guests. Everyone had enough room to be comfortable while still having plenty of space for the dance floor.

    It was the most amazing day of my life and I am so happy that we chose Barr Mansion for our wedding. I would absolutely recommend Barr Mansion to anyone who is looking for a beautiful and unique space with excellent service and phenomenal food.
