Our reception was hosted at the Barn, which is a part of the Holiday Inn-Alexandria. IT WAS PERFECT! The venue is a little different with a stage for the head table and two levels and is simply wouldn't even have to decorate that much if you didn't want. The staff was amazing to work with and great at communicating. Many of our guests commented on how delicious the food was and how much of it they got. And the hotel is right across the parking lot which was perfect for our tipsy guests to go crash at. I would recommend this venue to any bride.

We loved that you didn't really have to do any decorating! Only put center pieces out and certain small things around the bar area. The food was good, and the venue was definitely unique, we liked that we were able to look out and see many of our guests with people upstairs and down. The staff was great!! Just some minor, mostly unavoidable maintenance issues.
