I read about the Other Barn on FB and after looking at a few pics I had to go see it. My husband and I wanted a cocktail reception so this space was perfect! The built in benches added so much character and it was enough seating without doing a lot of tables. I absolutely adored our ceremony space outside on the patio. I am still in love with our venue and can't wait to throw my 5th anniversary party there!Sent on 05/04/2016

The Other Barn was perfect
This was the perfect venue for us. It is a unique venue as the meeting room is upstairs. But the room was beautiful before we even decorated. They were flexible and the price was very reasonable.Sent on 08/08/2019

Overall great experience, Bridgetta was great and very helpful. Lady At the front desk could use some customer service training. She had an attitude every time I had to deal with her. Otherwise, it was the perfect venue for our day. Affordable, great location, beautiful.Sent on 08/14/2019
