  • This was the perfect venue for our wedding reception! I was looking for something in the farm/barn genre in the Front Royal area and I used to live a couple minutes down the road from BRB, so my interest was piqued last fall as I saw the new barn going up. We were the first to book with them and so the base rental fee was waived for us, and we were absolutely thrilled with how it turned out. Billie was very helpful and met with us several times in the months leading up to the wedding to figure out details. The atmosphere of the barn is lovely - spacious and rustic with an industrial/modern touch. The catering kitchen is well planned and easy to access if bringing your own caterer (it's really nice that they offer the option to choose your caterer as many places don't) and the beer from the brewery was delicious. The barn also has air conditioning and fans. We decorated with mason jars of flowers, tea lights, burlap, lace and twinkle lights and it was really everything I daydreamed of. ... Read more
