The food tasting was a great way to see the inner workings of the venue not to mention delicious. The venue cost is a bit on the higher side but you can't put a price on an absolutely flawless, worry free day and having a well oiled team behind you! I wasn't anxious during planning or day of as I was confident the planning team had every detail covered. I wouldn't change a thing about how we chose to celebrate our day and so grateful we chose The Barns as our venue. Our day of and decor coordinator, Allie, was absolutely fantastic.
