I know you have so many questions. So, so many logistical questions. Mark and Deena at the Inn at Barley Sheaf have your answers. And the answers to questions that you didn't even know you had.
My husband and I had the best day of our lives. And we will never stop thanking this team for our weekend. I am a planner and worried as much as anyone could. Only Deena could have reassured me and taken from my hands and executed the most important party of my life.
Our guests will never stop thanking us. It is our luck that our guests think that we were their hosts. Mark and Deena were the hosts and Mark and Deena and their incredible staff made it all happen.
I am forever grateful.

PLEASE NOTE THAT AVERAGES FOR THIS VENUE ALSO INCLUDE ROOM PAYMENTS. SOME ROOM BOOKINGS ARE REQUIRED IN THE BOOKING OF THE VENUE, BUT NOT FOR ALL WEDDINGS. I BOOKED AN ENTIRE WEEKEND AND MUCH OF OUR EXPENSE ON ROOMS WAS OUR CHOICE.Sent on 11/26/2019

You'll feel like family when your wedding is over!!
Where to begin with this amazing venue?! I get teary eyed thinking about our wedding weekend that they put on for us. If you are lucky enough to have your wedding here - you will meet Mark and Deena who are the stars leading their amazing team. Deena especially has weddings down to a science - she and their whole staff were there for us every step of the way in the wedding planning process. I appreciated the many phone calls and emails exchanged with the team figuring out logistics and making sure that every detail was planned out to match our wedding dreams. With their resources and expertise it made wedding planning easy - and on the day we were stress free as they take care of everything!Sent on 08/21/2019
We had a particularly large wedding and their entire team rose to the occasion and put on the wedding weekend of our dreams. During the weekend the staff took care of every. single. detail. Including when we ran out of beer the night before and Mark took care of it and made sure that we had enough for the wedding day! This venue/staff goes above and beyond every day and are committed to high quality and amazing service. We feel lucky to have such cherished memories at the Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm.

I'm not sure there are words to express how awesome the Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm, and the people behind it, truly is. The venue itself is full of unique and vintage character, the restaurant and food is wonderfully delicious, and the owners and staff are so warm and welcoming. It really makes for the perfect wedding venue.
Wedding planning can be overwhelming, but Deena and the team are very organized and helped facilitate a great timeline for planning. Leading up to my wedding day Mark, Deena, Reeanne, and Moana were my go-to people. They were so responsive and caring throughout the whole process.
July 20th, 2019 just happened to be the HOTTEST day of the year and Mark & Deena, and the team, were so very accommodating and flexible for me, my party, and my guests. I was so nervous that my day was going to go awry due to the heat. I cannot thank the team enough for respecting my wish to have a ceremony outside, and for how well the whole day came together! They are true problem solvers and so very flexible!!
The Inn itself is lovely, and it truly made for such a wonderful weekend. It was so nice to be able to visit with family from out of state while enjoying the delightful atmosphere of the venue and prepare for our special day. I look forward to visiting again.
Thank you so much, Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm.Sent on 09/07/2019
