Absolutely amazing!

This venue was absolutely perfect for our wedding! It was a spacious venue that could accommodate a large guest list and had great views. Each time I visited the venue, they had done more renovations and bought new additions to add (tables, chairs, linens, etc) Jeanine was wonderful to work with helped us with anything we needed. Don’t miss your opportunity to book them!

Best Vendor Ever

The Barn at Old Colony was the best place we could have had our wedding. We wanted a barn wedding and we wanted a rustic feeling. And that was what we found here. Mrs. Wakerman is fantastic and she was very easy to work with and made our experience easy and awesome. The chandeliers in the barn and all the lights surrounding the barn provided the evening wedding we dreamed of. The barn is a growing venue and so this venue will only get better. If you are looking for a barn wedding or a wedding under the stars I recommend the Barn at Old Colony.
