    Dream Wedding Venue

    We had our dream wedding at The Red Barn!
    When we were planning our wedding, we knew that we wanted to have our reception in a rustic/barn type of setting. We looked at a few places but they were much too expensive. My husband found The Red Barn on the Knot; we went and had a tour and ended up booking it two days later! It has everything you could possibly want without breaking the bank. Although it fits the “rustic barn” category, it is also very classy and elegant. The old wooden floors paired with the beams and the white lights are just a dream come true. Cocktail hour was on a beautifully renovated deck. Our ceremony was out by the big, beautiful “ceremony tree”, which was surrounded by fields of tall grass with mountains in the background, all of which was gorgeous for photos. During planning, we attended a food tasting at The Res Barn, catered by Seth Myers catering, and it was delectable. The food that was served on our wedding day was equally, if not more, delicious. Finally, and most importantly, the staff at The Red Barn are outstanding. We worked primarily with Brittany and Maddie who were both extremely supportive during the planning process. They guided us when needed, they made great recommendations, and they helped make our wedding the most special day ever.
    I wish we could get married here all over again… 12/10 recommend this venue!

    Perfect Wedding Venue!

    We can't say enough good things about the Red Barn! Everything from the planning stage, to the tastings, to the day of was absolutely perfect! Our wedding coordinator Brittany was beyond helpful and responsive to all our questions and made the entire process enjoyable. The bridal suite was perfect for getting ready and the scenery is picture perfect! We received numerous compliments from our guests on how smoothly the day went, how good the food was, and how beautiful the barn is! We highly recommend the Red Barn and their staff!

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.
