I had my wedding at the Pickering Barn in December 2012 and I couldn't have asked for a better venue. The staff was incredibly helpful throughout the wedding process and offered assistance when needed on the day of. The venue is a blank slate so it allows you to bring your own vision to your wedding. The acoustics aren't the best in the Dairy Barn, so I recommend setting up speakers at both ends instead of the back of the room. My wedding day was flawless and I can thank the Pickering Barn for helping make it so special.Sent on 01/24/2013

My husband and I were married there recently. It is a great venue with lots a room. We were married inside the dairy barn and had our reception in the hay barn. Eena was awesome to work with. We were able to use the vendors we wanted. I would definitely use them again! Maybe for a future anniversary or birthday party!Sent on 04/09/2019

Couldn't have chosen a better venue!
Once we saw the Pickering Barn, we knew we needed to look no further for our wedding venue. The space is so open and allows you to give your guests plenty of space to spread out throughout the event. Great price, especially during the winter, but be warned that the Hay Barn is quite chilly and you will want to pay for the additional heater for sure! Lots of great places to take photos around the property as well. We got married in the middle of the snowstorm in February, and the staff did everything they could to keep our event running smoothly. Eena was always incredibly quick at responding with any questions we had!Sent on 04/09/2019
