  • I knew before I was engaged that I wanted to have my wedding at The Barn on New River and I wanted it to be in the fall. If you've never seen the foliage in the Blue Ridge Mountains then you're missing out. The barn has everything you need, his and her dressing room, a kitchen on-site for your caterer, a honeymoon suite, and cabin rentals close by for out of town family members. Not to mention, the owners, Mark & Paula Domske are a pleasure to work with, very accommodating to your needs, and Paula was always available to answer my questions, big or small. Day of, they are both there making sure your day runs smoothly. This place is a hidden gem nestled in the small town of West Jefferson, NC and no matter what season this place is breathtaking for a wedding!
