    Worth Every Penny

    We absolutely loved our experience with Barr Mansion! We did a small wedding package with them and it was absolutely a wonderful choice for us. The venue is so beautiful, the staff is on point, their food is great. Seriously, we would recommend this venue to anyone. Caryn was our planner there and she was fantastic. She really worked with us from start to finish and always supported us with every change we made. This place is a well oiled machine! Caryn and the staff at Barr made our entire wedding planning and day a breeze!

    A beautiful venue and incredible team

    I recently got married at Barr Mansion, and it was truly an incredible experience from start to finish. The wedding would not have been what it was without the help of Molly, who thankfully picked up the phone the day we wanted to visit the property. Throughout the year, Molly guided us through the entire wedding planning process, helped us put together an all-star lineup of vendors, and made sure that our wedding was truly the wedding of our dreams. Molly made us feel heard and if there was any detail we were excited about, she made us even more excited. She has a way of making you feel like you are putting together the most incredible event of all time, and she does everything in her power to make sure everything goes off as smoothly as possible. She went above and beyond to ensure everything exceeded our expectations, putting immense thought and care into the days leading up to the wedding and the wedding itself. This meant ensuring we felt confident in the food selection, making sure the lawn was as pristine as possible and organizing everything with the vendors ahead of time. We will never be able to thank Molly enough for all of the wonderful things she did to make our dream wedding come true.

    Barr Mansion itself is a gorgeous venue if you are looking for something upscale yet rustic. The Mansion provides a historic backdrop and perfect place for final getting ready touches and pictures. The lawn and landscaping, especially when in bloom, are stunning. The farmstead and ballroom also offer incredibly unique options that happen to provide the perfect rainy day backup plans. Also, it is a bonus that it is a zero-waste facility and is constantly working towards becoming a more sustainable venue.

    We also have to give a massive thank you to Chef Nicholas and Pastry Chef Sarah. The food was outstanding! Our guests are still raving about the food and how delicious everything was. Every dish was unique, tasty, and filling. The late-night pizza, served fresh from the brick oven, was also some of the best we have ever had.

    The team at Barr really did a phenomenal job. I want to especially thank Hollie for always answering questions quickly and making me and my family feel so special, Debbie for creating incredible cocktails and making sure the drinks were flowing, and Bella and Claudia, who both offered extra day-of support that was positively flawless.

    Best Wedding EVER

    I can't express enough how amazing our experience was at Barr Mansion! From the first time I called and got Molly on the phone, the whole planning process was seamless and day of was executed perfectly. Molly ended up being our planner and her organization and attention to detail was so helpful. Unlike a lot of places, they offer the full package of food, bar, furniture which is less moving parts and less stress. The venue itself is beautiful but they tailored it to exactly what we wanted and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day! Actively looking for another event to host here, don't wait and book this place ASAP!
