We had our wedding at The 228 this past weekend and it was everything we hoped for. We wanted an intimate, rustic venue and The 228 fit the bill perfectly. The barn and the grounds are beautiful, simple, and elegant. We were also able to have our rehearsal dinner and setup there the night before, which was a huge help for making the wedding day as stress-free as possible.Sent on 11/19/2018
Sharon, April, and the the rest of The 228 team were also wonderful. They were easy to work with, responsive to communication, flexible, and overall super helpful. You can really personalize your wedding and work with them to make the day exactly what you want. Sharon even brought a Gandalf costume for our officiant to put on during the reception (we had a hobbit/LOTR theme)! That made for some amazing photos and memories.
The prices are also very affordable. We added on additional items to suit our needs, like the firepit and patio heaters, and it was great to have those options. Their recommended vendors were also all fabulous. It's an excellent value overall. Thank you to Sharon and her team for making our day so special!

We booked The 228 in Sterling for our wedding in late July.Sent on 09/25/2018
Sharon and her staff made the day spectacular for us! We had both our ceremony and reception on the property. The ceremony took place at the gazebo, and the reception took place inside and (mostly) outside.
Sharon and staff worked with us to make sure that all of the bases were covered as far as who was going to set up decor, and take care of all of the other details that go into the wedding, such as clean and breakdown, etc. We had about 4 hours to set everything up, and because I wasn’t there, I don’t know how it was executed, but it was executed perfectly.
Sharon worked closely with us to understand what we wanted the place to look like, and she was on top of things for the whole day. We had some stress revolving around our rental company, so we had to have a lot of “plan B‘s” in place, a lot of which was covered by Sharon. Our wedding coordinator and Sharon worked very well together to make the day happen.
We also had Sharon staff the bar, which was great because we didn’t have to think about anything as far as the bartending.
The grounds, and the barn are gorgeous. The weather ended up being one of the nicest days of the summer. Us, and are guests, were not big dancers, in fact, most of the time when you would normally see an open dance floor at a wedding, that time was spent outside socializing, playing yard games that we rented, and just enjoying the beautiful weather. The venue was so wonderful in this regard, because you’re not sharing the property with other events or guests, like if you were to get married in a hotel or function hall which has other events or weddings going on. It was completely private.
The bottom line is that Sharon and her staff put in a lot of work at every event, and she really makes the day happen for you. We can’t thank her enough for the effort she put into our day.
