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.
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.
