My husband and I got married in April 2018 at The Historic Barn at Cooke Tavern. The barn is beautiful inside and out-- Mary Kay and Greg were flexible during the entire wedding process and were delightful to work with! With nearly 200 guests, there was plenty of parking available and the outside space offered additional seating and space for guests to socialize in a casual setting. We definitely recommend this venue!Sent on 08/07/2019
