About

The McGranahan Barn is a rustic wedding venue just outside of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The barn is a replica of a historic 1800s barn built by the ancestors of the venue owners, whose family still farms the nearby land. The McGranahan Barn is steeped in history and offers a pleasant, idyllic natural setting to host your wedding ceremony and reception.

Facilities and Capacity
Capable of hosting up to 350 guests, The McGranahan Barn has two separate outdoor locations as well as two indoor locations. Outside, you may rent the Front Lawn, Back Valley, or both! Both spaces offer views of the surrounding farmland and gorgeous local, natural features. There’s even a small windmill on the lawn enhancing the authentic rustic vibe! Inside the Barn, the two spaces are the downstairs and the loft. The inside locations feel elegant while retaining their pastoral roots; as you enter the barn through the main doors, a beautiful chandelier greets you, while the bar is made out of wood from the original McGranahan barn. Decor also includes bistro lighting and Jack Daniels barrels and tables.

Services Offered
You’ll feel completely taken care of at The McGranahan Barn during your celebration, thanks to their setup and cleanup services, bridal suite, and more. Additionally, while they have preferred vendors, your own outside vendors are also welcome! Other services include:

  • Lighting and sound
  • Pet-friendly
  • Event rentals

History
Once home to James and Sarah McGranahan, The McGranahan Barn property is on the National Register of Historic Places as a documented crossing of the Chisholm Trail. There are even preserved buffalo wallows remaining on the land. The McGranahans came to Oklahoma just after the end of the Civil War, where James McGranahan worked as the postmaster of Oklahoma Station (now Oklahoma City). They built their home and barn in 1895, where they lived until James’s death in 1939 and Sarah’s death one year later. The family land has remained essentially untouched since then and passed down through the generations, still remaining in family hands today.

    Maree's genuine encouragement and attention to detail sets this already beautiful barn apart from the rest!

    My wedding was on May 21, 2021 at the barn and I cannot speak highly enough of Maree and the staff at McGranahan. The venue is truly stunning but it was the attention to detail and the immense encouragement and support that made my experience with McGranahan so wonderful.

    As a bride doing most of her planning during COVID, I didn't get to see the barn in person before we committed to it as our venue. We took a Zoom tour initially, but when we finally did get a chance to visit in person it completely lived up to our dreams. The decor was incredibly easy to plan because the barn alone inside and out is stunning.

    Maree and her team were helpful throughout the entire process of planning. Maree was available via a message board to answer any questions I had during the months leading up to the wedding. She always prioritized what my fiance and I wanted, even if it was untraditional, but was also there to offer advice when we asked for it. Her seasoned expertise was well utilized. Additionally, I was lucky enough to get Maree as my Day of Coordinator which made the actual day of the wedding run even smoother than imagined. I would highly recommend this service to anyone planning a wedding, and having Maree, who knows the barn and the wedding industry so well, just made it even more helpful.

    I cannot emphasize enough how relaxed and at peace I was on the day of my wedding because of the coordination and work that Maree and her team did to make everything run smoothly. I had full trust in them to get me and my people where they needed to be when they needed to be there and everyone at McGranahan certainly delivered! The day was a dream and I am so thankful for this team that helped make it all happen.

    (Also a perk: the DJ that is included in the cost of the venue is EXCELLENT!)

    Amazing from day 1 of planning to the big day!

    My daughter got married at the McGranahan Barn last month and it was absolutely wonderful. Not only is the location exactly what the bride and groom wanted, but more importantly, the owner Maree Lunsford is a pro. She went above and beyond in helping us plan an amazing day. She is prompt in answering questions and she provided terrific recommendations for other vendors including the caterer, bartending service, and florist. She also gave expert level advice on putting together the timeline for the day. As someone who had not planned a wedding since I got married myself back in 1997, this was invaluable!
    Additionally, I highly recommend hiring Maree to be your wedding day coordinator. She was fantastic at coordinating all the vendors and the arrival of the bride's and groom's wedding parties and families. She knew how to keep things moving without being a drill sergeant. In fact, her voice and demeanor is so calming. On what can be a stressful day for the mother of the bride, she made it easy. I cannot recommend her more highly!!
