39 The Barns at Wolf Trap Reviews
Married on 09/09/2017
The Barns were an absolutely beautiful venue. I think I would have been hard pressed to find something as beautiful in this area. Maybe Meadowlark Gardens? But the problem with Meadowlark is that you ... Read more don't get to choose your caterer so it ends up being far more expensive and the food would have been nowhere near as good as the caterer I chose for the Barns! They do have a preferred vendor list, but they are willing to work with you. The vendors on their list are all pretty great too, and there is a variety of vendors for every budget. I ended up choosing a lot of their preferred vendors and was extremely happy with them all. I had chosen a vendor and the event manager was very honest about her experience with that vendor and said they were probably going to be removed from the list. I appreciated that honesty. I was a little concerned when the event manager for the Barns I had been working with suddenly left three months before my wedding, but Ginger Dockery was extremely reassuring and made sure that nothing unravelled while she trained the new event manager. I was extremely pleased with the response times on all emails and phone calls--they are very professional and easy to work with! The wedding was absolutely beautiful and so many people loved the venue! They do limit decoration, but the lighting options and beautiful finished interior are really lovely on their own (it's not a dumpy barn, its absolutely stunning inside). Because the Barns needs no decoration or lighting vendors, you can focus your decorative energy on tables cloths, flowers, candles, and centerpieces instead :) Because it's a national park, alcohol is an onsite thing handled by the venue only. They have different bar package options, and it's definitely pricey, but they are serving craft beers, excellent wines, and familiar brands of liquor. This is definitely not the cheapest venue option, but I am so happy I was able to snag it for my wedding reception because it was fantastic!!!!

We loved having our wedding at the Barns at Wolf Trap. Having booked a live band, once seeing this space, it was hard to top it. The stage and acoustics of the room were fantastic. The staff was very ... Read more helpful and responsive. Having 2 spaces for cocktail hour and reception was so great and the outdoor courtyard area was great if you needed fresh air. Abundant free parking was also a plus! With this venue, you have to have The Barns at Wolf Trap provide the alcohol. Although packages were pricey, and they provide a more limited beer selection, the service of the drinks was great and there was never a line for the bar. This venue is fantastic, but they only have a limited amount of days available for weddings depending on the season because of concerts. We had to have our wedding on a Sunday due to limited availability. If this venue is of interest inquire about availability right away!

My husband and I loved our wedding at the Barns at Wolf Trap. A beautiful mix of elegance and rustic charm, and very conveniently located. Because the Barns are already gorgeous, we found we really ... Read more didn't need that many additional decorations at all. The venue did the work for us, and as a result our flower and decoration budget didn't need to be very high. Also, the staff was very friendly and communicative and answered even the silliest questions with had with patience and kindness. (Thank you Ginger and Jordann!) Furthermore, they made a lot of things easy with their recommended vendors list which has a large variety of businesses in multiple budget ranges. Also, it is nice that they have their own bar, bar staff and liquor license; so, having an open bar there was not as expensive as other places I looked at in the area. All in all, we were thrilled with the venue!
