The Big White Barn was the PERFECT venue for my husband and I to get married in! The weather was all over the place on our wedding day from rainy and humid, to cloudy and humid, and finally sunny and way less humid. Valarie Maiers was so helpful in reassuring me with the many options (indoor, under the pavilion, or in the grass... not to mention the different directions I could face it as well!!) to hold the ceremony depending on how the weather turned. The bridal suite was the perfect space for me and my eight bridesmaids to get ready and the groom had a blast hanging out in the groom's room with his guys. The kitchen functioned perfectly as we stored and served dinner and dessert and the guests loved the openness of the space they had to mingle in during the reception. We got so many compliments on how beautiful the barn was and we could not have asked for a more perfect day at The Big White Barn! If we did it all over again, we would choose The Big White Barn every single time!!!Sent on 07/11/2017

Perfect Rustic Venue
Very rustic and simple look and feel. Spacious reception hall, even with 175 people. Loved the bridal suite. It was cute and vintage. Faith Adams, the manager, was super helpful and professional. Loved everything about this venue!Sent on 03/04/2019

Such a great venue
Great venue to for our wedding. We had been looking for a barn to do our wedding at and this hit every wish on our wish list. The fact that you had the option have your ceremony in 3 different places was spectacular. We chose the pavilion as it was November and super dark when our ceremony started. The lights on the pavilion at night were amazing. We had the venue from 9 am to midnight and you could extend your time for an extra fee. The bridal suite was amazing. Unfortunately, when the florist brought our bouquets in there were a ton of bees in the suite, so I would recommend leaving the bouquets out in the reception space. It was a plus to bring our our caterer and bartender. Those definitely saved us some money. Overall, great experience and would recommend to every bride.Sent on 12/18/2018
