    LOVE this Venue!

    I'm a planner with C&D Events and have worked at The Barn of Chapel Hill pretty often over the last couple of years. It is a STUNNING venue with so many different variations and options for ceremony, cocktail hours and of course the reception.

    I sincerely enjoy working with Kara and Katie! They are always so prompt with communication and SUPER HELPFUL!

    Of course I cannot write a review without mentioning Jen with Wild Flora Farm - The Barn of Chapel Hill's in house florist! She is truly so talented and I admire her work ethnic and everything she puts her hands on! Her floral execution is amazing.

    I would definitely check out this venue - you will be amazed!

    An absolute dream

    The Barn of Chapel Hill was our dream venue, run by a dream human. When we toured The Barn we knew it was exactly what we were looking for: the perfect blend of outdoor and indoor, elegant yet nature-inspired. It mattered to us to choose a space that welcomes all folks of all faiths, sexualities, races, and genders, and that honors the farming families on whose shoulders we stand... plus, it's a flower farm with honeybees - so beautiful and fun!! When we read more about The Barn's backstory and the work that Kara had put into the venue, we felt a connection. Meeting Kara and working with her early on solidified our decision - she was kind, compassionate, open-minded, and genuinely excited for us. Kara also connected us with Jennifer Wood of Wild Flora Flowers, who was also a DREAM to work with. Jenn's creativity, imagination, eye for detail, and compassion are truly unparalleled, and her kindness knows no bounds.
    The Barn was such a joyous space for our wedding day - we loved having our ceremony on the brick patio and cocktail hour on the lawn, and our guests loved the ability to move around freely and come in and out during the reception. It also ended up being a perfect space to employ COVID-19 precautions - the Barn was airy and well-ventilated, and our guests had plenty of room to spread out. Everyone commented to us that The Barn was the most beautiful wedding venue they had ever been to.
    From a planning point of view, when COVID-19 upended life for everyone and we had to postpone three times, Kara was beyond gracious, getting back to us immediately and helping us find dates that worked for everyone in our family and wedding party, all the while reassuring us with kind words. Jenn, meanwhile, was so patient and kind as she changed our floral plan with each postponement to reflect seasonal changes and availabilities. On wedding day, Kara's kindness and happiness were calming and grounding.
    Thank you, Kara and Jenn, for creating such a special and beautiful place to make once-in-a-lifetime memories ❤

    The best of the best!

    HIGHLY recommend the Barn of Chapel Hill! We got married in July 2021 and had a wonderful experience. Kara is wonderful to work with on the venue, and Jenn is an AMAZING floral magician. Our families and guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful the barn was - absolutely perfect for our dream day. Would also recommend all of their preferred vendors! We didn't worry about anything because they were all so proactive, communicative, and helpful.

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!!
