Romantic. Elegant. Intimate.
Is your wedding vibe classic with a bit of romantic and a touch of modern? Then Barrington’s White House is so you! This small wedding venue has vintage charm, with stunning architectural detailing and a subtle palette to fit your aesthetic. A striking backdrop for photos.
Think beyond a traditional hotel or banquet hall! This historic mansion offers a private, intimate space that is your "home" for the night.
The ballroom offers dramatic 16-foot arched ceilings and luxe gold chandeliers and accents. For up to 130 guests with room to dance to night away. Perfect for hosting both your ceremony and reception.
For welcome receptions and cocktail hour, consider the home's first floor. Mix and mingle with your guests as you sip fabulous cocktails and nibble delicious hors d'oeuvres throughout the flowing formal rooms. The tall rooms are naturally beautiful, trimmed with gorgeous oak and anchored by a stunning fireplace.
Come early and hang out with your besties before the ceremony in your own private Bridal Suite. There's plenty of room to relax in and get ready, including a hair and make-up counter for three. And we haven't forgotten the groom. He has his own stately Groom's Room on the first floor.
You and your guests will feel welcomed. And you'll be the only couple for the night.

My daughter & son in law hosted their wedding ceremony & reception at Barrington White House in late April. What a unique & stunning venue! The house was impeccably restored, highlighting the beautiful architectural details. You can add your own personal touches to the space (flowers, family photos) but it really doesn’t require much. The elegant décor is warm & friendly, not “stuffy” like many other historic venues.Sent on 05/24/2018
I highly recommend using the lovely bridal suite to get ready, even if you need to pay for extra hours. It was so worth it to have this beautiful, private space to relax, dress & have our hair & makeup done.
Jennifer was a pleasure to work with, offering helpful insight & suggestions throughout the planning & set up process.
The house staff was very attentive & worked well with our caterer (Wild Asparagus), insuring all the details were taken care of.
Thank you, Barrington White House, for providing such a beautiful environment & helpful staff! It was magical, memorable, & stress-free day!

Magical Location for a Wedding Reception
Stupendous location for our daughter's wedding reception party, November 17. This is a magnificently restored mansion and feels like your very own home the moment you come in. Jennifer, the event manager, clearly loves her job and takes it seriously. She is kind, helpful, timely, professional, but incredibly friendly and caring. Our only regret is that she was ill the night of the party. We wanted her to see our finished production and share the joy. The house is perfectly suited for all needs, including easy access for our wheel chair bound matriarch. Thank you White House for making your house feel like our own. The guests were in awe as they climbed the broad staircase, appreciating the elegance of decor. The ballroom was perfect size for 75 guests with a dance floor. This is the first time I've ever planned a formal event and Barrington's White House was the perfect choice of venue. Thank you so much. It was like working with favorite family.Sent on 11/25/2018
