The wedding of your dreams at the Oak Barn
When we set out on choosing a wedding venue over a year ago, we visited many venues in the DC metro area that did not meet our needs and desires. Many of the venues gave us a “wedding factory” vibe and we felt rushed through tours.Sent on 11/30/2020
When we finally toured the Oak Barn and met Ernie and Barb, we knew right away that this was the venue of our dreams. The Oak Barn presented an ideal indoor and outdoor event space with a lot of unique advantages such as climate control, a picturesque ceremony site with beautiful landscape views, a stellar indoor rain plan, and a gorgeous patio for dancing and cocktails. We were impressed that they offered more time for weddings than any other venue that we visited without charging extra fees.
From the very beginning, Ernie and Barbara treated us like we were part of the family. Our wedding was scheduled for June 6th, 2020, and due to the pandemic we had no choice but to postpone. Ernie and Barb were very accommodating and worked with us to select a new date that would allow us to still plan for the wedding of our dreams.
We are now planning for a Summer 2021 wedding, and we couldn’t be happier that we chose the Oak Barn. It has been a tough year for everyone but Barb and Ernie were compassionate and thoughtful in working with us to meet our needs as they have continued to evolve. Some of our friends and family suggested we change plans, get married at the courthouse and throw a much smaller party, but we opted to hold out for our new date at the Oak Barn, and we know it will be worth the wait!

We couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else!
My fiance and I are so obsessed with The Oak Barn at Loyalty that it's hard to capture everything in one review. It's a venue I thought could only exist in my dreams, but I'm so thankful it doesn't. The views of the Blue Ridge Mountains are everything I wanted and the wedding spaces are beautifully designed. Separate from that, Barb and Ernie are an absolute dream to work with. We had to postpone our wedding because of COVID and they were so accommodating and helpful as we considered our options. They worked with us with the ultimate goal of making sure our perfect wedding could come to life. We feel so blessed to have found this venue and can't wait for October!Sent on 03/13/2021

Q: Did we see ourselves going with a barn venue?
A: Not until we saw this one!
At the time I met Barb & Ernie I was literally going around and meeting with most all the venues in the DMV. I was (still am) selling advertising space to venues on WeddingWire. The plot twisted, when I ended up selling myself!
Throughout our initial meeting I couldn't stop noticing the sheer design. The flawless layout. They thought of EVERYTHING. (The only thing really missing, at the time and in my opinion, was a chandelier. They have 2 now. They actually had them installed just weeks before our wedding... unbelievable surprise. I think the best part is - both chandeliers can be displayed brightly or hidden quite nicely, depending on your taste;).
Now the true test - would my future hubs sell himself? I didn't say much, at all, like an experiment I wanted to see his unbiased reaction. I wanted to see if he would fall for it like I did. When I brought him and our 2 pups to the venue, we were there for over 3 hours. Just talking, hanging out, watching the dogs play, and figuring out a date that could work!
The overall vibe was most important to us, and the vibe is just right! You cannot beat the fresh air, the privacy, the temperature controlled barn (not as common as you would think) and not to mention... the built in contingency plan! It's the venue that really leaves you with nothing to worry about in terms of "what ifs?" it's all thought of, they have you covered. Which is great - because you don't want to learn the hard way on your wedding day - am I right!?
