I wish i could give more than 5 stars
I cannot say enough good things about the 228. Sharon and Maria made our COVID wedding absolutely beautiful. We faced a lot of challenges when COVID hit, having to alter our guest count, changing everything to outdoors, ensuring we could have dancing, a bar, food, etc. They made sure that we had a healthy and safe wedding. They went above and beyond helping us every step of the way, especially during the rehearsal and day of the wedding. Our older guests were very impressed with how attentive these ladies were to making sure they made it to their seats safely and how accomodating they were.Sent on 11/24/2020
The 228 In Sterling's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words! You were such a great couple and truly focused an the important parts of a wedding- getting married, being together safely and having a fun time! It was our pleasure. The kilts were a treat too. Wishing you a happy, long life together L&D. Fondly The 228

Superior Flexibility, Attentiveness & Professionalism
It would be safe to say that no one expected the 2020 wedding season to go as it did. We were one of those couples that spent much of March and April anxiously wringing our hands and nervously watching the TV as we realized that our wedding day would likely come and go without the anticipated fanfare and celebration. But in April, we zoomed with Sharon and Maria at The 228, and they oh-so kindly presented our options (which were more than thoughtful and generous), and we decided to keep our original wedding date and hold a VERY small COVID-safe ceremony on The 228 grounds with only a handful of close friends and family.
The professionalism, thoughtfulness, and flexibility that The 228 demonstrated throughout this entire process has been remarkable and truly appreciated.
If you are looking for a venue in the central / western MA area, we couldn't recommend The 228 enough. The grounds are spacious and well-kept and include a covered patio to the side of the [beautiful] barn, and a fire pit for evening s'mores and fireside fun. The staff is attentive and friendly. The barn itself is well-kept, clean and the perfect spot for customizing your Instagram-worthy event! What more can we add? Oh, you are supporting a woman and veteran-owned business too!
We can't wait to hopefully host our wedding celebration later there in 2021!Sent on 12/13/2020
The 228 In Sterling's reply:Your group was so wonderful and laid back to work with! Happy to be a part of making your love legal in 2020 and celebrating a short time safely. "Catch you" next year for the party! Sharon

Post wedding reception
We had a post wedding celebration for our son & daughter in law after a recent elopement style wedding. The 228 was very accommodating to our ideas and budget, offering ideas. The location is beautiful with spacious grounds, while also having convenient access. Our guests loved it.Sent on 12/11/2019
