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

DREAM Wedding Reception
I remember the first time our wedding coordinator mentioned The Barn of Chapel Hill during our hunt for the perfect reception venue. The moment i saw the renderings (it was still being built), I knew it was THE ONE, even before I talked with Kara or went to see it in person. When we arrived, it was still being built, but I could envision it all so perfectly. No other venue stood a chance! Kara was so sweet and patient to my many questions and ideas, and was such a pleasure to work with! Jenn (the on-site florist) had obvious talent and passion for flower arranging, so I pretty much told her the colors and vision, and let her run with it - and I was NOT disappointed at all! Everything was perfect. The weekend of, everything was absolutely perfect and beautiful! Kara truly has a dream team at The Barn of Chapel Hill, and I look forward to ANY opportunity to work with them again! Thank you guys for helping make my dream wedding reality!

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!!
