Beautiful Venue & Amazing Staff!
The Barn of Chapel Hill was the most perfect venue for my wedding! I am so grateful for Kara, Jenn and Katie - they were incredible to work with over 1 1/2 years. They really listened to the vision we were going for, and pulled out all the stops to ensure that everything ran smoothly. We had a rain issue day of and Kara went above and beyond to ensure that we had the perfect day. The Barn is absolutely stunning and Jenn is a floral queen! All my guests were in awe of the Barn and the beauty they have created there. I am so glad I went with this venue and would highly recommend to anyone!Sent on 05/07/2019

We booked the Barn of Chapel Hill almost two years before our wedding and before it was even finished being built. From day one Kara, Jenn, Katie, and their team were wonderful. We really enjoyed their collaborate attitude towards everything and their ability to take our vague ideas and turn them into something beautiful. Plus, the venue itself is the perfect setup - light and open with plenty of space in case it rains. We couldn't have made a better choice for a venue!Sent on 11/19/2018

Our Dream Come True!
The Barn of Chapel Hill is the perfect wedding venue in every way. From the incredible team to the stunning barn and grounds, the Barn of Chapel Hill made our wedding a dream come true.Sent on 08/08/2019
Kara and Jen were my wedding fairy godmothers. Kara blew us away with her kindness. She was responsive and accommodating to every question and request we had throughout our year of planning. Kara has transformed the barn into such a stunning venue, and she's thought of every detail, including an adorable bridal suite that was the perfect, relaxing spot for my bridal party to get ready. Jen is a true artist, and every guest was blown away by the gorgeous flowers at our reception. With only a few color ideas from me, she turned the barn into a wonderland that far exceeded our expectations. Kara and Jen were also really helpful in connecting us with local vendors and offering recommendations. Everyone worked together very nicely to pull off a seamless day.
Aesthetically, from the moment we stepped into the barn, we knew it was our ideal venue. The beautiful high ceilings let in so much natural light. We had plenty of room for all of our tables (did I mention the beautiful farm tables?!) and a nice-sized dance floor. The venue is very versatile - we had multiple options for how to lay out the reception and where to host the cocktail party. Our guests loved spending the cocktail hour outside on the covered patio and playing lawn games.
The barn is a showstopper outside and inside! I wish we could live our wedding day all over again - and if we did, I would pick the barn every time!
I can't say enough good things about this venue and the owner, Kara. I got to meet Kara while playing for a special event at The Barn of Chapel Hill, and she was so professional and such an awesome person to get to know. This is a very special place and I can't wait until my next wedding or event there! I HIGHLY recommend The Barn of Chapel Hill!!
