20 Barrington's White House Reviews
Married on 04/28/2018
My daughter & son in law hosted their wedding ceremony & reception at Barrington White House in late April. What a unique & stunning venue! The house was impeccably restored, highlighting the ... Read more beautiful architectural details. You can add your own personal touches to the space (flowers, family photos) but it really doesn’t require much. The elegant décor is warm & friendly, not “stuffy” like many other historic venues. I highly recommend using the lovely bridal suite to get ready, even if you need to pay for extra hours. It was so worth it to have this beautiful, private space to relax, dress & have our hair & makeup done. Jennifer was a pleasure to work with, offering helpful insight & suggestions throughout the planning & set up process. The house staff was very attentive & worked well with our caterer (Wild Asparagus), insuring all the details were taken care of. Thank you, Barrington White House, for providing such a beautiful environment & helpful staff! It was magical, memorable, & stress-free day!

Magical Location for a Wedding Reception
Stupendous location for our daughter's wedding reception party, November 17. This is a magnificently restored mansion and feels like your very own home the moment you come in. Jennifer, the event ... Read more manager, clearly loves her job and takes it seriously. She is kind, helpful, timely, professional, but incredibly friendly and caring. Our only regret is that she was ill the night of the party. We wanted her to see our finished production and share the joy. The house is perfectly suited for all needs, including easy access for our wheel chair bound matriarch. Thank you White House for making your house feel like our own. The guests were in awe as they climbed the broad staircase, appreciating the elegance of decor. The ballroom was perfect size for 75 guests with a dance floor. This is the first time I've ever planned a formal event and Barrington's White House was the perfect choice of venue. Thank you so much. It was like working with favorite family.

The PERFECT rehearsal dinner/welcome drinks venue!
We used Barrington's White House for our rehearsal dinner and a Welcome Drinks/Welcome Reception the night before our wedding and it was absolutely perfect. We used the third floor for our private ... Read more rehearsal dinner (bridal party & family; approx. 30 people) and then following dinner, we all transitioned downstairs for a larger Welcome Reception for any/all guests in town early (approx. 50-75 people). Jennifer at the White House was so easy to work with; very responsive over phone/email and accommodating of our work schedules (we live in the city and had to do all of our walk-thru's during the evening or on weekends). The vendors that the White House partners with are also fantastic. We used Heybeck's for food/service and they were so easy to work with (very knowledgeable of the White House layout and kitchen capabilities). Overall, the White House has such a warm, inviting vibe that we simply could not wait to show it off to all of our friends & family - and boy did our guests love it too! For anyone who is looking for a unique, comfortable space with the capacity to host an entirely private evening the night before your wedding, look no further than Barrington's White House. I cannot say enough great things about our experience from start to finish.
