About

2022 Couples' Choice Awards Winner
$2k - $3k For 100 Guests

The Barnstone is a rustic wedding venue nestled on a country farm in Wayne County, Wooster, Ohio. The century-old Barnstone has been carefully renovated to provide gorgeous wedding and reception events for couples seeking a rustic barn experience for their milestone celebration. This venue features the Barnstone barn and three other traditional farm buildings to accommodate every couple's wishes for their unique, memorable day. The barn and property boast a classic country appearance, with white buildings and endless fields of crops. Located near The College of Wooster, with hotels nearby, this venue is about an hour's drive from Cleveland.

Facilities and Capacity

Couples can invite up to 175 guests on their special day at The Barnstone. This idyllic escape is available to couples from late April through summer to the last weekend of October. The century-old Slate Barn features two-story-high cathedral ceilings and exposed wood with a weathered texture in every direction. The hayloft ladder and wagon wheel chandelier add to the authentic, rustic atmosphere of the barn. Each building has electricity and ceiling fans to keep guests cool during summer wedding celebrations. The Carriage House sets the scene for your cocktail hour or the bar area for your reception, with plenty of space for tasty nibbles and appetizers. Also included on the property are The Summer House and The Chicken House. The Summer House is the old farmhouse cottage used for summer living, now especially suited for the nearlyweds and their party. The Chicken House has been repurposed into dapper get-ready quarters. Both buildings are air-conditioned and ideal for getting ready for the big day ahead.

The Barnstone is available to host ceremonies, receptions, engagement parties, and rehearsal dinners. If available, couples who reserve the Barnstone for Saturdays may utilize the facilities on Friday for setup and rehearsal events.

    Beautiful Barn Venue

    Perfect location with great sunsets and landscape for pictures. Loved the setup with the Carriage House for drinks/appetizers, spacious barn for the reception, and fun summer house & chicken coop for the bridal party to get ready. Our guests loved the location and setup. The owner was super great to work with and very helpful. We had no complaints through the process! We really enjoyed the cute lock wall that couples can secure a lock on. We would highly recommend The Barnstone if you are looking to have a memorable barn wedding!

    The Barnstone's reply:

    Thanks Taylor, it was great to work with you and your family through the whole process, we are so glad everyone is happy.
    Best wishes,

    Above and Beyond

    This is a beautiful venue with lots of character and charm. I was blown away by the venue director’s (Doug) attentiveness. Leading up to the wedding, he was flexible in allowing me the visit the venue multiple times and was detailed in writing down everything I wanted. On the day of, mostly everything was set up the way we had discussed. While guests arrived, he attended parking and ensured those who needed extra assistance a ride on the golf cart. There were many things he did behind the scenes that I wasn’t fully aware of but made the day that much more special and run smoothly. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking to have a wedding!

    A Perfect Day

    Doug was an awesome person to work with! He let us visit throughout our planning period to get refreshers and fall in love with the venue all over again. Having the entire day before our wedding to set up was so stress relieving!! He was even so helpful the day of :) We continuously get compliments of how beautiful everything was. We couldn’t recommend this place enough!

The Barnstone is an awesome venue to be a part of an event with! The owner is great to work with, and has always been so accommodating to any request from both us, as a caterer, and our clients who book there... Unlike a lot of other rustic venues, the floor is new and absolutely beautiful. Imagine a gorgeous hardwood floor...in a barn setting! Perfect for any wedding.
