    Unique venue and incredible staff!

    The Barns at Wolf Trap was the one venue my now husband and I toured that we walked out of and he immediately said "Book it!" The Barns is unique with a ton of character, and it makes you feel like you're far outside of the city in the country (what we really wanted, but couldn't accommodate conveniently with mostly out of town guests) when really you're incredibly convenient to transportation, lodging and tons of vendors! Our local guests were excited to check out a place they hadn't been before and didn't realize was able to be rented for weddings. The space has recently undergone some renovations that we didn't see completed until after we booked, but it is incredible! You can tell there is pride in the space as a whole and making it the best it can possibly be.

    There is a list of caterers you are required to pick from due to the more complicated setup and historical nature of the venue, but we were able to find one that suited our needs. Additionally, alcohol must be purchased through the venue, which means it ends up being a little more expensive, but the selection of beers in particular was excellent (local and delicious!). The fact that the venue is more commonly used for concerts and performances gives you some incredible lighting options and the character of the barns themselves means you don't really have to decorate the space much to make it feel grand, warm, and inviting.

    Working with Ginger, Jordann, and Angela was an absolute pleasure. Their response time to any/all questions was very quick, and helpful. They made planning our wedding and the rehearsal/day-of a breeze. We couldn't be happier with our choice of wedding venue!

    The Barns at Wolf Trap's reply:

    Thank you so much, Stephanie! Ginger and I couldn't be more pleased that you and David had such a wonderful experience at The Barns. It was our pleasure to get to know you both, and your families and to help you with your day! Best of luck to both of you!

    We loved having our wedding at the Barns at Wolf Trap. Having booked a live band, once seeing this space, it was hard to top it. The stage and acoustics of the room were fantastic. The staff was very helpful and responsive. Having 2 spaces for cocktail hour and reception was so great and the outdoor courtyard area was great if you needed fresh air. Abundant free parking was also a plus!

    With this venue, you have to have The Barns at Wolf Trap provide the alcohol. Although packages were pricey, and they provide a more limited beer selection, the service of the drinks was great and there was never a line for the bar.

    This venue is fantastic, but they only have a limited amount of days available for weddings depending on the season because of concerts. We had to have our wedding on a Sunday due to limited availability. If this venue is of interest inquire about availability right away!

    Thank you for sharing your story, Krystina! We loved working with you two and wish you many wonderful years to come. - Ginger & Jordann

    My husband and I loved our wedding at the Barns at Wolf Trap. A beautiful mix of elegance and rustic charm, and very conveniently located. Because the Barns are already gorgeous, we found we really didn't need that many additional decorations at all. The venue did the work for us, and as a result our flower and decoration budget didn't need to be very high. Also, the staff was very friendly and communicative and answered even the silliest questions with had with patience and kindness. (Thank you Ginger and Jordann!)
    Furthermore, they made a lot of things easy with their recommended vendors list which has a large variety of businesses in multiple budget ranges. Also, it is nice that they have their own bar, bar staff and liquor license; so, having an open bar there was not as expensive as other places I looked at in the area.
    All in all, we were thrilled with the venue!

    The Barns at Wolf Trap's reply:

    Jackie – We loved being a part of your big day (and loved your cake design also!) Best wishes to you both for a wonderful life together and hope to see you around the Park! – Ginger, Jordann & Angela
