About

On WeddingWire since 2019

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.

Services Offered

The Barn at Cauffiel's friendly staff will do everything possible to make your day as easy and stress-free as possible. They can help with planning to ensure everything goes off without a hitch. Jeffrey Miller Catering can provide delicious dishes and desserts for your reception, meaning you won't have to look elsewhere for catering services. The venue also offers bar services, and event rentals are available if desired. If you or any guests wish to stay overnight, there are seven comfortable, elegantly-furnished bedrooms in the house that can serve as accommodation.

Wonderful experience

Went to visit the venue during their open house and the venue is so beautiful! Between the barn and the historic house it’s all so breathtaking. Also the people who work for the venue/JAM catering are amazing; they are so helpful, friendly and patient ( I had a lot of questions lol). I can’t wait to have my wedding at this venue! I would definitely recommend this venue and JAM catering!

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!
