    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!

    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 enough

    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.
