About Sweeney Barn

Sweeney Barn is a rustic yet elegant wedding venue in Manassas, Virginia. This newly restored barn and outdoor venue is perfect for couples looking for a blend of historic charm and modern sophistication. Sweeney Barn was first constructed in the early 20th century, and has stood the test of time as Manassas grew around it. The building preserves the county's agrarian past while including state-of-the-art amenities that make it perfect for weddings and events.

Facilities and Capacity
Sweeney Barn has both indoor and outdoor facilities, with the capacity to host up to 220 guests. The barn is easily accessible (handicap accommodating) and climate-controlled. The outdoor ceremony site is perfectly situated for evening photos and captures the original silo behind the ceremony arch. The lower level has an open floor plan that can accommodate ceremonies or serve as an area for cocktail hour. The upper level's soaring ceilings and expansive hardwood floors make it perfect for ceremonies and banquets alike. An outdoor porch extends beyond the banquet hall for guests to enjoy a little fresh air. A small bridal suite with a private restroom is also located on the upper level for getting ready, and for the couple to take breaks if they need it before and after the ceremony.

Services Offered
Sweeney Barn may be a historical building, but it is fully equipped with modern amenities. You will have access to a warming kitchen, projectors, and JBL sound equipment for your speeches, slideshow, and music. You will have up to nine hours of access to the facilities, between 11 a.m. and 11 p.m. Sweeney Barn requires you have a day-of-wedding coordinator present. You may choose your own caterer. However, if they are not on the list of preferred vendors, they will need to provide a certificate of insurance and meet with the venue prior to the event.

History
Sweeney Barn was constructed in 1939 by a family of dairy farmers in Manassas. It was originally a one-story dairy barn with a hayloft, where the Birkett family stabled their livestock. The barn was eventually abandoned, until Alannah and Noel Sweeney purchased the property and decided to restore and turn it into an event venue.

    Partner Vendor

    As a wedding photographer, I don’t just partner with anybody, I’m picky about who I want to be identified with. Sweeney Barn is a dream partner. A gorgeous and easily accessible venue with more charm and romance in its little finger than most venues have on their entire property. Excellent management, beautiful scenery and an elegant space make Sweeney Barn a must see

    A Must See Venue!

    I recently got a tour of Sweeney Barn and must say how impressed I was with not only the venue, but the wonderful staff that will be there to assist you throughout your engagement and on your wedding day! The General Manager, Andrea, was so helpful in explaining details about the venue and has been very quick to respond to any communications. As a renovated dairy barn, this venue will speak to any rustic lover's heart, but its modern touches and gorgeous chandelier lighting make it completely versatile to fit your preferred style or design. For all of these reasons and more, I'm so excited to be partnering with this new venue as a preferred vendor. We can't wait to see how Sweeney Barn helps so many couples and their families celebrate their new marriage with a wedding that they are sure to remember forever.
