Best venue for the perfect Vermont Barn Wedding
A picture perfect venue for a Vermont DIY wedding. The views are gorgeous, the barn large with fairy lights, lots of outdoor green space for ceremony and cocktail party, large fire pit and ... oh... those adorable alpacas. The running of the alpacas was phenomeonal and put everyone in a great mood. So many people remarked that this was the best wedding they have ever attended. My daughter's dream of the perfect Vermont wedidng came true. :)Sent on 09/03/2019

Fantastic experience, beautiful property, great people
The Vermont Wedding Barn, aka Champlain Valley Alpacas, aka a Little Slice of Vermont Heaven, was everything we could have hoped for and more for our July '19 wedding. Jenny and Les, owners and host extraordinaires, are incredibly friendly, sweet, easy people to work with. Les' brother, Bill, was also on site all weekend, lending his hands and just being friendly. They went above and beyond their normal wedding weekend duties to make sure everything went smooth on our weekend. And look at those alpacas! They are such unique, cool, cute animals that were all much more sweet than we had imagined. They really provide a lot of character to this beautiful Bridport venue, and the 'Running of the Alpacas' is something we will never forget!
When we booked this venue sight unseen, we had been a little apprehensive to see it in person for the first time, but the barn itself is much more spacious than some of the photos make it seem (we fit 140 people, buffet tables, a 5-piece band, bar, and more in there), the manicured lawn all around it provides tons of room for lawn games, appetizer tables, cocktail hour, etc., the pool cottage is a charming, spacious studio with a nice shaded deck and, of course, the pool to hop in when it got too hot was a big family favorite. There are a few different options for ceremony site depending on your preference, which is a nice thing for a venue to offer. We chose the sunny spot, next to the vineyard with the Adirondack backdrop. Can't beat it.
It's worth noting that when booking at the Vermont Wedding Barn, you are booking the space to use for your wedding. Unlike some other places, you are not hiring a team to help coordinate, set up, take care of the logistical aspects. As I said, Jenny and Les were very helpful to us in so many ways, but just remember there are a lot of moving pieces that go into a wedding weekend! Planning and executing our wedding ourselves, we learned this first hand. Be sure you have help arranged for the weekend (recruit your family + friends!). Of course, this makes the Vermont Wedding Barn more financially viable than a lot of other VT venues!
Overall, if it isn't obvious yet, we loved this place and would certainly recommend the venue to anyone looking for a beautiful, outdoor Vermont setting. There is something about a barn wedding that is just so fun, the 60 or so alpaca on the farm give the property a unique, fun leg up on other Vermont venues, and Jenny & Les take it over the top with their hospitality and friendliness. We are so happy we tied the knot at this great family farm - it will always hold a place in our hearts.Sent on 08/05/2019

We had the PERFECT wedding day/entire wedding experience at The Vermont Wedding Barn! The views and scenery cannot be matched. I am originally from Vermont and some of the most beautiful land in the state is in Bridport. The barn is gorgeous which makes decorations so easy, less is more! Les and Jenny are so easy to work with and genuinely want you to get everything you dreamed of in a venue. The alpacas were a huge hit and added to the fun for us! Being able to have a bonfire after the DJ and caterers were finished added so much more time with the people who attended the wedding and allowed us to keep the night going as long as we wanted. It is so convenient for your guests to be able to pitch a tent or bring and RV and camp for the night and not have to get hotel rooms! We got so much more out of The Vermont Wedding Barn as a venue than other venues even begin to offer. We cannot say enough good things about it and would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone getting married! Thank you Les and Jenny, you’re the best!Sent on 10/18/2018
