    The greatest wedding investment you’ll make

    If I could leave a million stars, I would. Every single aspect of Barr Mansion is impeccable and made our wedding the most special day of our lives up to this point. Barr Mansion is timeless, romantic and whimsical. But more than the stunning venue, phenomenal food and gorgeous grounds you’ll find the greatest part, our coordinator Molly M. Her communication is timely, thorough and clear. She thought through every detail I would’ve forgotten and was an integral part of planning our day. She is kind, genuine and planning with her felt like I was planning with a friend. She has a very calming spirit and is truly the best person to be around in a high stress environment (cause planning and day of might bring a few frustrations). Molly makes you feel heard and is incredibly attentive. We were blessed and fortunate enough to not even feel like we were planning a wedding in the midst of Covid. Molly and everyone at Barr Mansion made our day flawless and unforgettable. We couldn’t have done it without you, Molly. You’re the best.

    Amazing Venue & Staff

    I HIGHLY recommend Barr Mansion, Molly our coordinator was amazing. She was by my side through all the ups and downs of COVID. She worked with us on changes and was always very responsive. The venue is beautiful and the staff is amazing. They tended to our every want and need. The chef did an great job on the food. The appetizers were delicious and the main course was even better. The beef tenderloin is to die for and don't forget the green chili mac n cheese. Our guest are still talking about how delicious everything was. Thank you for making our daughters wedding perfect.
