Perfect wedding venue

the barn 1906 was our dream wedding venue! We are so thankful for the help of Kimberly and the Van Luyk family leading up to our day, their attention to detail throughout and of course the beautifully maintained grounds. We didn't have to worry about a thing on our day with the team at the barn 1906 doing the coordination for us. Highly recommend.

Our day was absolutely perfect and SO much fun!!

We had the perfect day. Kim, Laura, Monica and their team absolutely delivered. The venue was gorgeous and every detail was exactly what I visioned. They are so kind and are truly there to make your day perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better venue to have my wedding. They made the whole day go by smoothly, communicated with me really well and helped us stay on schedule. Even weeks later our friends and family are still talking about it! Thank you so much Barn 1906!! If you're debating getting married here, I highly recommend!

Our Dream Come True

My Husband and I will forever be grateful to The Barn 1906 for providing us with the wedding venue of our dreams! To this day our friends and family tell us how incredible our wedding was and how much fun they had.
The Barn has it all - beautiful outdoor ceremony grounds perfect for photos/magazine worthy sunset photos, a STUNNING barn equipped with everything you need (harvest tables, lights, massive bar, elevated DJ space), awesome bartenders, and overall just the most beautiful setting for dinner, speeches, and dancing the night away. Oh and the bridal suite is PERFECT for a morning getting ready with your girls, such an added bonus to have that on site where you get to watch your guests and husband-to-be arrive from the window.
When all was said and done we were genuinely sad knowing we wouldn't be back and that our dream wedding was done. We'd do it all over again just to relive that beautiful day. We can only hope one of our friends will get married at The Barn so we can go back!
Thank you to The Barn 1906 family for everything

Simply Incredible

WOW!! It is hard to find words to describe the amazing Family & Team who run The Barn 1906.
From day one Kim & her daughters were absolutely amazing, and through the two years of our engagement, they were there every step of the way.
Leading up to our day, Kim was always available to answer our questions and work with us through any scenarios. They continued to surprise us with their growing venue & additions which so graciously added to our big day.
On the day before/day of our event the team worked hard to help our vision come to life and ensured we were well taken care of.
The property is BEAUTIFUL and PRISTINE and we continue to get endless compliments on what a unique, beautiful, and well put together venue it is. We even heard that two of our friends who are huge farm boys got a grand tour of the property DURING our event!!
Trust us - you want to get married here.
We feel like we are family now and can't wait to find an excuse to go back!!
We love you guys,
Megan & Steve

The most wonderful venue!

I was incredibly picky about my wedding venue, as a wedding photographer myself who had a very specific idea of what I was looking for. The Barn 1906 was beyond stunning, and so lovely to work with! Kim and Laura were lovely and so accommodating. All of my guests remarked on how well cared for the property is, and couldn't get over how green and lush the grass was in the middle of a huge heat wave (and as a photographer and a bride who walked barefoot most of the day, this was key!) The service was phenomenal, and the venue itself is beyond stunning! They took care of absolutely everything, were so professional and friendly, and made us all feel so welcomed! I cannot recommend The Barn 1906 enough!!!

10/10 would highly recommend!

Planning a wedding during a pandemic was not easy. We had to change our date and Kim and the barn was very accommodating and allowed us to reschedule for the same year. We had the best day of our lives and it wouldn’t have been the same without the help/assistance of the barn and their lovey staff! Thank you Kim for all your help planning, answering questions and making sure our day was beyond perfect! We can not thank you enough for everything you did for us.

Wow and then some

Kim and her daughter last ate nothing short of absolutely amazing . The property is reasonably priced - the grounds are STUNNING and she works well with all vendors to ensure the day is flawless .
It honestly felt like I got a wedding mom with the inside scoop ; super responsive and helpful ! Her daughters were so sweet and all and all they made us feel more like family than a customer . I went to over 30 viewings for the right venue , not only was it the barn itself but it was Kim and her personality and honesty that sealed the deal

The Most Perfect Day

We got married on June 22 2019 and it was the most perfect day.
My husband found the venue by chance and Kim had only 1 spot left for 2019. We rushed to see the venue and fell in love with it the second we turned into the driveway.
Kim was so sweet and we both felt like we’d known her for years after only talking with her for a short while. After my fiancé and I left we didn’t even make it to the end of the driveway before we looked at each other and said let’s do this!
Kim was so great with providing us with recommendations for vendors and we were so happy with every recommendation.
If I could do the day all over again I would. Hands down the best venue we have ever been to with the best staff.
Hope to see you guys in the future for family photos at the barn.
Thank you so much!!!!

Best Wedding Ever

If you’re looking for the perfect rustic venue to get married, this is it 100%! We were beyond happy with everything! The property is beautiful, and the barn is exceptionally gorgeous! Kim & her team did so much behind the scenes work so when we showed up to set up we could start right away and everything already looked good so there was nothing to stress us out! The best part is you can do everything there! Our guests didn’t have to move from the ceremony to a reception hall! And we did all our pictures there too! It was perfect!
