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.

    Beautiful venue - wonderful coordination

    Sweeney Barn is a breathtaking venue. My (now) wife and I were looking for a venue that holds up on its own because we lack decorative skills. We kept our wedding very simple and it turned out to be stunning. We absolutely loved the contrast of the crisp and bright downstairs area for our ceremony with the majestic wood barn structure upstairs for our reception. Our friends and family told us all night how impressed they were when they stepped through the front barn doors. In addition to the stunning structures, Andrea and Meghan are two absolute rockstars. They were communicative, steady, and prepared for everything we asked for. Can't go wrong with Sweeney Barn!

    Sweeney Barn's reply:

    Thank you so much, Patrick! It was absolutely wonderful working with you and Yoohee on your wedding. We're so happy that you loved the atmosphere of our venue, and that our team did a great job making everything easy for you. We truly appreciate the 5 Star review, and we wish you every happiness as you start your married lives together. Take care!

    Excellent Venue and Staff

    Sweeney Barn was aesthetically our dream venue... but the staff made our day as perfect as could be! Their team answered all of our questions in a timely manner, worked with us as items changed or adjusted throughout the planning process, and flawlessly executed our special day.

    Sweeney Barn's reply:

    Thank you so much for your thoughtful review, Sarah! It was an honor working with you and Billy on your wedding day, and we wish you every happiness as you start your lives together. Have a wonderful, relaxing time on your honeymoon in a few months!
