About

The Barn at Cauffiel is a historic wedding venue located in Wilmington, Delaware. A beautiful country estate situated in Bellevue State Park and overlooking the Delaware River, it's the perfect mix of rustic charm and elegant sophistication.

Facilities and Capacity

The Barn at Cauffiel offers a number of spaces that are perfect for ceremonies, receptions, and cocktail hours. You could hold a romantic outdoor ceremony in the venue's impeccably landscaped gardens, exchanging vows on the gazebo. You could then move into the Colonial Revival-style Cauffiel House for cocktails in the ornate dining room, boasting its original mid-20th century furnishings. Alternatively, you could remain outside to enjoy your drinks on the manicured lawn. Outdoor receptions can be held in a spacious tent, while indoor receptions can be held in the newly-restored rustic barn. The barn seats 200 and has a cozy, welcoming feel with its wooden interior, exposed beams, and warm string lights. It makes a perfect place to eat, drink, and dance the night away with friends and family.

    Beautiful Fall Wedding

    We were the first couple to sign for the Barn at Cauffiel. We had visited several other properties and venues prior, both owned by JAM and not, but as soon as we got out of the car at the Cauffiel Estate it felt like we had found our place. We explored the property and immediately fell in love with the property when Tom Covello, the venue manager, took us into the barn and told us its story (we won't ruin it and let him tell you on your visit!).

    Back in late 2019, exploring the property and imagining our day there took some vision as the property had not yet been renovated. But the way Tom spoke about the vision for the property we knew it would be beautiful. We got to watch over our long engagement as the venue was transformed. The finished product is more than we could have hoped for--keeping the charming character of the original property while making it also feel updated and welcoming.

    Our wedding day went beautifully and all of our guests enjoyed the experience! For us, the best part was that the property is a complete package. Ceremony, cocktail hour, reception and rooms for the bridal party all in one place! Tie that in with JAM's proven catering prowess and its a recipe for success!

    Perfect Venue Helped Make a Perfect Day!

    When we first visited Cauffiel, it was new to JAM and had not undergone renovation yet. We took a leap of faith given the conceptual photos we were shown. We're so glad we did. The barn looks awesome! It was exactly the aesthetic and experience we wanted.

    The entire estate is beautiful and having the house available for cocktail hour and for overnight stay was an added benefit.

    Honestly, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day, and we wouldn't have chosen any other venue if we had it to do over again.

    Tom Covello and the staff were incredibly easy to work with. They were accommodating to our requests and helped us plan a perfect day. We can't thank Tom and everyone enough for their help and enthusiasm toward making our event happen!

    Perfection- 5-Star Wedding Weekend

    We had an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING EXPERIENCE throughout our entire wedding weekend at The Barn at Cauffiel Estate. We had both our rehearsal lunch and wedding (ceremony and reception) on the Cauffiel Estate property and everything was PERFECTION. From the start of the rehearsal on Saturday through the end of the our reception on Sunday night, everything flowed incredibly smoothly and according to plan. Being the type-A bride throughout the wedding planning process, Tom Covello (Cauffiel Estate site manager) and the entire JAM & Buttercup team exceeded my expectations.

    The venue, decor and flowers (decor and flowers provided by Buttercup) were STUNNING! It was everything I had envisioned for our rustic & romantic wedding. The food was DELICIOUS. So many of our friends and family continue to tell us how much they enjoyed the food on our wedding day.

    The entire day felt like I was on a cloud, the experience was just flat out AMAZING. I could go on and on about how much I loved the weekend and continue to relive it. I was blown away by how they made our vision come to life.

    Thanks so much to Tom, the JAM team and the Buttercup team for making it all possible for us.
