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!

Byron Colby Barn was the perfect place to get married! The space is gorgeous and so flexible - you can really make your wedding whatever you want it to be! The silo bar is so unique, and loft upstairs was a perfect place for us to have our DIY photobooth. The landscape around the barn was stunning for pictures. Options for the ceremony in the courtyard outside or in the barn itself. Plus, Kim at the barn was wonderful to work with! She was flexible with timing to see the space throughout the planning process and how with how things were set up the day of. And she gave great advice for vendors and how to best use the space. I would absolutely recommend the barn to host any event!
