  • Jenn and Steve, along with all their staff, were an absolute joy to work with every step of the way. They have the experience and always gave us good insight into the little details. They helped make our wedding day run seamlessly and let us enjoy every moment. Steve and Jenn were also very attentive not only our needs, but every one of our guests and especially our parents. Our day was perfect, everything we could have imagined, and more! We highly recommend The Barn!
