Exactly what you want for an authentic VT wedding
I called MRB and talked to Heather (one of the owners) and quickly scheduled a visit for the next day. The venue is absolutely amazing and the people behind it, even better. There is impeccable attention to detail and a genuine feeling of "we would be excited to have your wedding here" rather than the "you would be lucky to get married here" feeling I had at other venues. Heather said "it's like summer camp for adults"...that is exactly what we want our weekend to be like! I can't wait to continue to work with the MRB team to plan our wedding.Sent on 03/16/2019

I wish I lived at the Mad River Barn
The Mad River Barn was everything we dreamed of. A breathtaking venue that includes everything you need, delicious food, and staff who treat you like family. My family and guests had such a wonderful weekend staying on the property, and no one wanted to leave. One thing I really love about MRB is that they honestly go above and beyond to think of everything you could possibly need for your day. Rain in the forecast? Don't worry—they have a ton of umbrellas, including clear ones! This was a huge sigh of relief for me. I didn't realize it until I got there that weekend, but rain was forecast and I was so nervous. Then I saw that they had us covered. Need some extra decor? Have no fear. They have an entire Pinterest shed that you can borrow from. Guests with special dietary restrictions? MRB accommodated guests of mine who were gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, could only eat pureed food due to medical issues, etc. It was just an amazing weekend from start to finish and I can't wait to go back and visit.Sent on 10/20/2019
