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 rustic charm that is still sophisticated. Sweeney Barn was first constructed in the early 20th century, and has stood the test of time as it presides over beautiful rolling hills in the Virginia countryside. You can’t find another venue with better views, more privacy, or the same country charm as Sweeney Barn.
Facilities and Capacity
Sweeney Barn has both indoor and outdoor facilities, with the capacity to host up to 300 guests. The barn is easily accessible (handicap accommodating) and climate-controlled inside, with stunning views of the blue skies and rolling fields of Manassas. The lower level has an open floor plan which can accommodate ceremonies or serve as a reception hall. In the upper level, you have access to another banquet hall for the reception and cocktail hour, and a small bridal suite for getting ready and for the couple to take breaks if the need it before and after the ceremony. Outside a ceremony arch is constructed, so you can have an outdoor ceremony overlooking the hills, and have your reception ready in the lower level of the barn.
Sweeney Barn may be a historical building, but it is fully equipped with modern amenities, and has an excellent service staff to help your big day run smoothly. You will have access to a warming kitchen, projectors, and JBL sound equipment for your speeches, slideshow, and music. Sweeney Barn also provides aisle runners and props for photography if you would like to rent them. 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.
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.
