Intentional, flexible, positive, easy!

Barn Up the Hill is beyond what I could have dreamed as our perfect wedding venue.
Pam was amazing to work with as day of coordinator- she helped us dream up our ideal day and the flow of things, contacted our vendors to make sure the timeline ran smoothly, was available for meetings/phone calls whenever we had questions, and suggested incredible new options as we were reimagining our guest list from 90 people to 50 due to COVID. Pam was calm, kind, and a life-saver when navigating such an important day in our lives during an incredibly uncertain time.
As the bride and groom, we totally trusted Pam to take charge of the day behind the scenes and make decisions - such as turning our “sunset toast” up on the hill into a “twilight toast” under the barn lights when there wasn’t a sunset that evening! She had the idea ready to go and just quickly checked in with us - it was amazing to feel so at ease and taken care of. Pam had back-up plans for our back-up plans!
The venue itself is intimate and cozy. It feels like you are tucked away in your own little world for the day. Our guests raved about the relaxed nature of the day as the ceremony and reception were all in one location - they didn’t have to worry about moving pieces or timing.
Barn Up the Hill’s extensive rental list has everything you could possibly need - it eliminated hours of market place hunting, DIYing, and saved us time and money.
We had an incredible experience and would recommend this gem of a venue to anyone and everyone (and already have!!)

Magical Experience

Our daughter had her wedding at Barn Up The Hill and it was a magical event. Everything went amazingly. It rained and because everything was in one place we could move the ceremony in and program out as the weather changed. From the beautiful view for the ceremony to the barn dance that then moved to a sunset dance under the was magical. The Barn up the hill team were so amazing and helped make the whole weekend beyond special.

Wedding day made easy

We opted for the package that included their day of coordinator, set up /tear down team, and access to using any of their many pieces of decor. It was worth the money to have such a stress free and seamless weekend. It was also very nice to not have to worry about renting things from multiple vendors or having to try and buy/sell decor. Our guests described the setting as picturesque. It was everything I imagined for my wedding and Pam and Arianna were so helpful and fantastic to deal with.

They have no concept of hospitality!!!

We felt unwelcome! Do not choose this vendor! I was a guest and did not feel comfortable with the constant nit picking about everything.

Overbearing hosts live on site and hover.

the hosts live on the venue and constantly hovered over the event and threatened to shut the wedding down or fine people for noise or having a drink in their hand. poor customer service.

A beautiful wedding venue and a pleasure to work with Pam and Paul!

Pam and Paul have a wonderfully beautiful wedding venue! They are delightful and easy to work with. They listen well, offer great suggestions, are very helpful, and pay attention to details. They are improving on their venue all the time and are flexible in what they offer. It was an amazing day for our daughter and new son-in-law to celebrate at Barn Up The Hill with family and friends and Pam and Paul went above and beyond to make it so. Thank you!!

Far exceeded anything I could have dreamed of!

Choosing this wedding venue was the absolute BEST decision. Barn up the Hill is a breathtaking venue--it was exactly how I always dreamed my wedding would be: very boho, in nature, and simple but so beautiful. The property and barn so exceeded my expectations as Pam and Paul have been making great improvements in the past months. They went above and beyond in helping me make the day absolutely perfect. They are lovely people to interact with, quick to respond to messages and keen to help solve any issues. I highly recommend this venue!
