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.
