    Getting married during a Pandemic

    Planning a wedding is stressful enough, not to mention replanning a wedding to adapt to government mandates issued during a pandemic. AND this was a destination wedding! Through all the changes and stress, Paula supported us every step of the way. She works her butt off to make not only your wedding day, but the entire weekend about the couple! From phone calls, to text, to email- she was awesome at communicating with us. The Barn on New River is truly gorgeous- photos do not do it justice! From the barn in the valley to views at the scenic overlook, it’s perfect. We also stayed at the rental cabin on the property for the weekend, which made the days leading up to the wedding feel like a relaxing vacation. Unlike many venues, The Barn on New River is not just a business, it’s an extension of Mark and Paula’s home- and they will make you feel like family.
