    Wedding Venue Nestled In The Blue Ridge Mountains

    I knew before I was engaged that I wanted to have my wedding at The Barn on New River and I wanted it to be in the fall. If you've never seen the foliage in the Blue Ridge Mountains then you're missing out. The barn has everything you need, his and her dressing room, a kitchen on-site for your caterer, a honeymoon suite, and cabin rentals close by for out of town family members. Not to mention, the owners, Mark & Paula Domske are a pleasure to work with, very accommodating to your needs, and Paula was always available to answer my questions, big or small. Day of, they are both there making sure your day runs smoothly. This place is a hidden gem nestled in the small town of West Jefferson, NC and no matter what season this place is breathtaking for a wedding!

    This venue is beyond anything I could have ever imagined!

    From the moment we arrived, I was already at ease. Paula and her husband go WAY out of their way to make sure everything is completely
    Perfect for you. The cabin on the property is beautiful and stocked with everything you need. We stayed here Thursday-Sunday and rented
    A golf cart to get to and from the barn. Rehearsal dinner was amazing and we all ate inside
    of the barn since it was a little chilly.

    The Barn itself leaves people speechless when they walk in. So many people said it seemed like a fairytale.
    From the beautiful views from the barn for your ceremony, to her flower garden we used for a lot of pictures, the short ride to the top of the mountain for breathtaking photos during cocktail hour- this place far exceeds any wedding venues I have been to.
    Paula lets you decorate and do things your way, they are always on standby just in case you need anything during your time there and were just the sweetest people I could have asked for to help us with our day. Her communication during the entire wedding planning was also a huge plus. I was planning during covid and she kept reassuring me that everything would be perfect no matter what and boy was she right!

    I hate to use the word regret, but I really think you would regret not using this venue. 10/10 for all parts!♥️ We can’t thank them enough for allowing us to be there!
