Absolutely Perfect Venue for Us!
Cannot say enough about how amazing The Red Barn was for our wedding! Barbara was our coordinator from the red barn and she was amazing!! She made me feel so much calmer and like everything was taken care of! She alone is enough of a reason to use The Red Barn!Sent on 09/21/2019

This venue blew my expectations out of the water
This venue truly couldn’t have done anything better for us. We had our incredible, 85 people wedding here this past Saturday 8/10/19, and the day was completely from a story book. Everything I could’ve possibly dreamt of, the food was incredible from start to finish, the coordinator I had the pleasure of working with answered every single one of my annoying and OCD questions with the utmost detail and pleasure. There is literally nothing I would change about my wedding day, except maybe just to relive it over and over again. I love the red barn and everything it has to offer, the pricing is BEYOND accommodating, the venue itself is so genuine and true you need very very minimal decor to make it really shine, and the people all throughout again, are just so incredible and kind!!! Cannot thank them enoughSent on 08/12/2019

Best Barn Venue
I always knew I wanted to get married in a barn. Not your rustic farm type wedding but a beautiful romantic barn. My search immediately started for one within a 2 hour range from our home and through many emails and calls I finally dwindled it down to visiting 3. Immediately after visiting the Red Barn we both knew this was the one. Not only are the grounds incredibly beautiful but they seemed to be the most stress free at the best value.Sent on 07/11/2019
My process started with my coordinator Bridget who was awesome and about halfway through I learned she was going to be leaving and I became incredibly nervous about who I would work with and if they would be as a great as Bridget. The transition was very smooth and i shortly after started working with Brittany. Brittany was amazing!!! You would never know that she was new to the Red Barn. She always had an answer for me and always responded to me right alway. Any requests I had or one of my vendors had, she would always help accommodate.
During my wedding weekend this team was amazing. I never had to worry about anything and my guests were well taken care of. The venue has such beautiful areas to take pictures and to put up decorations. The food and drinks were great and all our guests had great things to say. Another plus is the central air which was high up on our must have list when getting married in late June.
I would highly recommend this venue to any bride and groom looking for a beautiful barn venue!
Awesome wedding venue! Very organized staff!
The Red Barn is a great place for weddings. They've been in the wedding business for a long time and they are great at what they do! I highly recommend them!!!
The Red Barn at Hampshire College is excellent. I had never shot in a barn type venue before and had requested to visit the facility in advance of a wedding ceremony. Isabel had gladly allowed me to walk the grounds and conduct test shots throughout the facility prior to the wedding. Because of that advance visit, the bride and groom was able to get wonderful and beautiful shots throughout the venue. I love working with the staff of the Red Barn and had a wonderful time. They were extremely friendly and went out their way to make sure we were all set. I felt like we were in good hands. I would recommend the Red Barn at Hampshire College to have a celebration there.
