Our Dream Wedding Brought to Life!
It goes without saying that we couldn’t have found a more perfect venue for our dream wedding. From the moment we stepped on the grounds and met Mark, who is one half of the power couple that owns the property, we knew that the Inn at Barley Sheaf was exactly what we were looking for. Mark dedicated an entire afternoon to touring the grounds with us and making it known that he was just as vested in our wedding as we were.
Before we started looking for a venue we agreed we wanted uniqueness, character, and most importantly a place where our wedding felt special and we wouldn’t be just another number. The Inn at Barley Sheaf gave us all of that and more! From the various impeccably styled rooms we filled with our family and friends, the exquisite grounds which make this bed and breakfast feel cozy yet elegant and luxurious at the same time, and the incredibly delicious award-winning restaurant style plates which our guests declared the best wedding meal they’ve ever had, we couldn’t have asked for more…
In comes Deena (making the power couple whole) and her expert planning team Abbey and Reeanne. These three women were able to take our vision and make it a reality better than we could’ve imagine. They knew exactly what questions to ask and were able to put together every inch of our wedding weekend allowing us the time to relax, take it all in and really enjoy ourselves. We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the rest of the staff at the Inn at Barley Sheaf who were attentive, pleasant, and who were just as happy for us as our own family and friends.
We leave you with this… some people will say that there may be minor hiccups at your wedding, and to just brush it off. But, we will say without hesitation, thanks to the dynamic duo Mark & Deena and their expert team at the Inn and Barley Sheaf, our magical wedding went off without one single hitch and for that we will always be grateful! We look forward to many more visits to the Inn, if for nothing else, than to eat the outstanding food prepared by Executive Chef Josh Homacki and his wonderful team!

Words can't express how excited I am to have my wedding here in May 2019! The whole event coordination staff is so sweet and so professional! The venue is to die for and even better in person! I love the flexibility they offer with picking a ceremony spot on the premise and how flexible they are with my endless requests! Exceptional service and hospitality all the way around!

So happy we picked Barley Sheaf :)
My husband and I got married at Barley Sheaf in October. Barley Sheaf was the first venue we checked out and we immediately fell in love. Mark, Deena and the rest of the team were very responsive throughout the planning process despite that I may have asked them hundreds of questions. We were hoping for an outdoor ceremony under the trees and cocktail hour on the patio off the manor house but given the cold and rainy forecast several days out, we decided to move everything inside to the barn. Deena was amazing, calling all of our vendors to coordinate Plan B, including reaching out to the band to coordinate an early arrival of the drummer to avoid any disruption during the ceremony and cocktail hour. She handled this and other weather-related logistics with the other vendors without even being asked, which was so fortunate for me because I never would have thought of these logistics myself – especially just days before the wedding! Even in the rain, the venue was shockingly beautiful. Our pictures are amazing. There is a large fireplace in the barn which was burning during the ceremony which contributed to the cozy and romantic atmosphere and the acoustics were perfect for the string quartet. The staff at Barley Sheaf flipped the event space after the ceremony for the cocktail hour/reception in a matter of minutes. The entire day went without a hitch – my mom, my MoH and myself were completely stress free and didn’t have to worry about a thing. The guests have raved about the service and food. We will definitely go back again and again for brunches and dinners because the food is so amazing. Though the weather wasn’t what we envisioned, everything was more perfect than we ever could have imagined, and we are so happy we tied the knot at Barley Sheaf!
