About

On WeddingWire since 2018

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 unique and sophisticated venue. Sweeney Barn was first constructed in the early 20th century and has retained all of the character and charm of the time. 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 it to its former glory and turn it into an elegant venue.

Facilities and Capacity
Sweeney Barn has both indoor and outdoor facilities, with the capacity to host up to 200 guests for a seated banquet with a dance floor. The barn is easily accessible for guests of differing abilities and is climate-controlled inside for everyone's comfort. The lower level has an open floor plan which can accommodate ceremonies or cocktail hours. The upper level consists of a grand ballroom for the reception and a get-ready-suite for wedding preparations.

Services Offered
Sweeney Barn may be a historical building, but it is easily accessible and fully equipped with modern amenities. You will have up to ten hours of access to the facilities - three hours for set-up, six hours for guests, and one hour for clean-up. Sweeney Barn provides 200 white padded chairs, 20 wine barrels with stools for high-top tables, a ceremony arch, and assorted lanterns/decor. Couples must have a wedding coordinator present for the event. There is a list of preferred partners that have a great relationship with the venue and know how the layout and flow of the space work best. Couples may choose to use a caterer outside of the provided list, and this can be discussed and coordinated with the venue prior to the event.

The BEST venue is the DMV area!

Initially we were looking at different venues when we were researching. Sweeney happened to be the first venue I went to see and I fell in love immediately! Not only it is a beautiful venue, but the team is amazing. The manager Andrea is so helpful and responsive. I asked so so so many questions, but she always gave answers. Throughout the whole planning time she gave recommendations and such as well. Very easy to work with and the team is so productive. Our guests were enjoying themselves and they couldn鈥檛 stop mentioning how beautiful the venue is. Some of the guests already asked me to pass Sweeney鈥檚 info so their family members can get married here as well. If you want your elegant, rustic, beautiful, and classy wedding this is the venue for you. Since it is already so elegant and pretty, you can go less with the decorations. I highly recommend Sweeney!!

Exceptional service & beautiful venue!

We did not book this venue unfortunately as our date seems to be popular (as well as this venue!) However, our entire experience with this venue and Andrea was phenomenal. She is extremely personable and provided the most thorough information during a walk through that would make the greenest of brides to be, comfortable. She even went out of her way to let us know, post venue tour, that our date has since been booked. Thank you again, Andrea!
