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.
