Wedding venue of dreams
In addition to just being good people, they’re professionals. Throughout our 2.5 year relationship with Rosie and Broussard, they were consistently punctual in responding to our many questions and concerns, making our and our wonderful planner’s (Angela Sallee) lives substantially easier, which in light of the circumstances was much appreciated. As the big day finally approached, they walked us through how the weekend would go (for a third time) and helped put our minds at ease, such as explaining the COVID precautions that they are taking to keep guests safe and what they would do to make the wedding go as smoothly as possible in the event of inclement weather (which fortunately was not an issue, as we had perfect weather the whole weekend).
The venue itself is a truly stunning property, both on the farm, where we had our welcome party and ceremony, and in the barn, where we had our reception. The grounds are immaculate and as a working farm, you get to experience what makes Kentucky truly special – the horses. I'm originally from Lexington and my husband from New York. We wanted to give our many out of town guests a uniquely Kentucky experience, and the Polo Barn fit the bill perfectly. Our guests were blown away when they got off of the busses at the farm and when they walked into the barn itself for the reception. We had to have received 100 compliments over the course of the weekend on our choice of venue.
A big part of the reason that we chose the Polo Barn was that you have access to the venue for the entire weekend. Rather than having to plan our welcome party elsewhere, we were able to host it on the farm just outside of the barn. We wanted to avoid having the welcome party feel like a second wedding, and the venue was highly conducive to achieving this goal. It’s also inclusive of a “cottage” (which is more spacious than the name may indicate) for the bridal party to get ready in. The cottage is thoughtfully decorated with personal touches from the farms history. It includes a mancave for the guys, which my husband loved (and now wants one for our house!). The cottage is a fun place to hang out and calm some nerves before guests arrive.
Overall, we couldn’t recommend the Polo Barn more. A+ experience despite the circumstances
