Everyone commented on what a great venue Byron Colby Barn was. They were so easy to arrange decorations and vendors with. Definitely a great venue for the price, flexibility and quality.

The barn was great! It's definitely DIY, which is what I wanted. We were able to spend a little extra to be able to set everything up on THR for our FRI wedding, so everything could be how I wanted it. You can bring in your own alcohol, which saved us some money as well, and the caterer (Maravelas) was also affordable and fantastic. Parking is easy and we even got a free shuttle to/from the hotel. Highly recommended!

Professionalism is almost non-existent (hand written receipts on printer paper, to give them a print of venue prior we had to copy/paste from their web-site otherwise needed to hand draw), fairly unorganized, and you can grow old waiting on a response. They used our flower vendors employee to help put tables together because one of their people didn't show, set up room incorrectly (table in band area despite proving set up diagram), we had to clean up trash outside from wedding day before, and cleanup staff was asking for leftover food from wedding. Clean up staff parked in loading area hindering cleanup after a long day and then they got an attitude when I said something. Nice location for a themed wedding but very lacking in professionalism, communication, courtesy, and organization. Their vendor, IWED Solutions was FANTASTIC!!!
