    A charming venue

    Zenbarn was the perfect venue for our wedding. We had several compliments from guest that it suited us perfectly. It was rustic and charming with a very fun calming atmosphere. Lin was the perfect coordinator! She kept us calm and on track the entire time. All of my emails prior were answer within a few hours no matter how small the matter. We were struggling to find a venue that would accommodate an intimate wedding on a tight budget while still having all the traditional aspects a large venue would offer. Zenbarn was able to accommodate us and even set up all of our decorations so we had nothing to worry about but getting married! The food was superb and would 100% do it here again given the chance. We had the wedding of our dreams thanks to Lin and the team at Zenbarn!

Hi! I'm Katie Shanley, Marketing & Events manager at ZenBarn. Driven by an instinct to help and connect with people, I believe working with couples to plan their special day is a privilege. Weddings provide so much joy and lasting memories for you and your guests. Your wedding is a form of expression; a chance to share with others who you are as individuals and as a couple. I would be honored to share in that experience with you and help you plan the quintessential Vermont wedding at ZenBarn.
