    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.

    Mad River Barn's reply:

    We are so excited to host! I keep saying we get the best couples, and it's so true! We're very grateful for this opportunity, and look forward to an epic weekend!

    Best,

    Heather

    After visiting Mad River Barn (the first venue we saw), we didn’t even bother going elsewhere.

    It’s not an understatement to say that MRB really has it all. To us, we had it all:
    - Intimate outdoor ceremony surrounded by lush Vermont greenery
    - Reception fully equipped with lawn games, a Ben&Jerry’s ice cream sundae bar, s’mores fire pit, Photo Booth, and a rowdy (the good kind) dance floor
    - Lodging on site for about 40 guests (our wedding party, parents, parents, grandparents, cousins and some friends were all able to stay right on site)
    - Pub for an after party— allowed us to keep the party going until 2 AM

    From the guest rooms to the pavilion, the venue is perfect in all it’s entirety. From the breakfast buffet (available on weekends for guests) to our wedding reception meals, the food was delicious and never disappointed.

    Everything was perfect but it was the people who made the biggest difference and had the largest impact on me - Mad River Barn is run by and staffed with an amazing group of people. All of the employees are attentive, good-humored and helpful. They went all around above and beyond to ensure that we, our families and our guests had an unforgettable weekend. The atmosphere at MRB is heavily dictated by the owners, Heather and Andrew, who are truly two of the nicest and coolest people we have ever had the pleasure of meeting, working with and spending time with. Heather and Andrew were an absolute joy to work with from day one and truly made the supposedly stressful planning process a complete breeze for us.

    When we look back on our wedding day and remember it, eventually the little details like what we ate and what music was playing will fizzle out - but one thing is for sure, we will never forget where we spent it and who we spent it with and that very much includes Heather, Andrew and the amazing staff at Mad River Barn.
