    A Perfect Wedding Venue

    The Barn at Boone's Dam makes wedding planning about as easy as possible. The venue is beautiful, the staff were great, and the food was fantastic. I had multiple guests tell me that it was the best food they ever had at a wedding.

    Best day ever!

    I planned this wedding from NY. I went to Pennsylvania once to meet the owner, Ruth. She sat down with us and explained everything from beginning to end. Whatever you think is your fairytale wedding, Barn Boones Dam will EXCEED your expectations! Ruth kept in constant communication with me, easing my anxiety. The venue was romantic and the staff was amazing! Whenever I had a question about some thing in the area, she provided a vendor list. Ruth single-handedly made my wedding beautiful by all of her personal touches like specialty drinks, signs, etc. We had chicken, salmon and steak and our guest are still talking about the food. We had a wedding cake but chose cupcakes so people could have a variety of flavors. There is not one thing that I can say should have been improved except we should’ve made the wedding a whole day event to enjoy the beautiful grounds and scenery.

The Barn at Boone's Dam is one of my favorite venues to work at. The location is beautiful and there are endless possibilities for photographs. Ruth, Melody and the entire staff are wonderful to work with and go the extra mile to make sure each couple's day is how they imagined it.
