    absolutely beautiful barn wedding experience

    We had our barn wedding at William Allen Farm and the wedding was absolutely beautiful. Of note, the ownership changed over in 2020 or so and is now under Kate Samson. Kate and her family are wonderful to work with and was always available and communicative throughout the planning process. You get the barn for the entire weekend- so we had our rehearsal dinner on site as well and we utilized the bridal suite for hair and makeup all day on the wedding day. The property is spacious and there are a lot of areas for the ceremony to make it unique. Kate was very flexible with letting us come early on site on Friday to set up and clean up Sunday. We hired their coordinator Ashlea, who exclusively works was WAF, whom I strongly recommend as she was instrumental in advising us where to set up our ceremony, how to set up the tables, etc etc. Of note, Kate offers clean up for an additional fee, which we did not utilize, but you may consider as it really makes things a lot easier. Like all barn weddings, you have to rent and bring everything on site; though for us this meant we got to set it up the way we want and really allow our creative vision to come to life. Overall the barn is gorgeous and beautiful, the property allows for a beautiful ceremony, and Kate is very easy to work with and a wonderful partner in creating your perfect wedding!

    William Allen is incredible!

    William Allen was the PERFECT venue for our October 30th wedding! It was an absolutely gorgeous "blank slate", where we had use of the entire property and were able to bring in the best vendor team, with Kate's guidance and help. The flexibility was amazing, and Kate and Jim made sure everything went smoothly on the big day. Despite the pouring rain, our guests from all over the country RAVED about the wedding and the venue's beauty.

    We are so happy that we chose William Allen and highly recommend it to anyone considering!

    Perfection!

    William Allen Farm was the perfect venue for our wedding weekend! The barn is stunning and has so much character. The property was the perfect backdrop for all of the festivities and our photos looked amazing. We were married in early November, and were worried about it being too cold. We had nothing to worry about. The barn has an amazing heating system that kept everyone at a great temperature. The bridal suite is beautiful and huge. Heidi and Al were incredibly helpful during the planning process and during the wedding weekend. We really couldn鈥檛 imagine getting married any place else!
