Wedding, Reception, Rehersal Dinner Venue

11/4/23 Bride here! We had our rehearsal dinner as well as our wedding ceremony and reception all at the venue location and we could not have been more pleased with the accommodation's and overall outcome of all events! The owner Ruth and her husband are not only both chefs, but Ruth was awesome to work with, especially if you appreciate someone who is able to keep the show running smoothly while the Bride slightly delays the ceremony due to a small panic attack! Her and the staff took incredible care of myself/Groom, both Bride/Groom parties and all of the guests through all 3 events! Planning was a breeze and she truly makes your vision come to life! The best part about this venue is that it鈥檚 already gorgeous as is, and we felt that we did not have to focus heavily on additional decor; Ruth worked with us closely to ensure our theme and colors perfectly tied together with the natural beauty of the venue; I felt so comfortable with Ruth that I gave her full reigns on any additional decor we brought, for her to place where it looked best, and she delivered flawlessly. We continue to received tons of compliments on the food, dessert, venue, overall service and more! Highly recommend as a venue that adapts to all your needs and brings your vision to life!

Best Day Ever

Ruth and the whole team at Barn at Boone鈥檚 Dam were amazing! Whether is was deciding what wedding package to get, to keeping the Groomsmen on their best behavior, Ruth was open and willing to make all our wishes come true. Of course, my favorite part of the whole experience was the food! From appetizers to the cupcakes, we could not have been more pleased. The very very best part was the service between ceremony and reception. While our guests enjoyed cocktail hour, and we took pictures, Ruth鈥檚 staff made sure our bridal suite was filled with appetizers and drinks, truly making this the BEST DAY EVER. Thank you to everyone who made it so perfect!!!

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. I know when I am working with couple who is getting married at the barn that things will go smoothly.
