    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

    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.

    the barn 1906's reply:

    To our stunning Bride and Groom:
    It was our pleasure working with you. Your soft kindness and perfectionism was very evident in every detail of your day. Our team enjoyed interacting with your friendly guests and assisting with any need that was brought to them. Thank you for your confidence in allowing our family to serve your family.
    Kindest regards,
    Kimberly, Monica and Laura

    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 barn 1906's reply:

    Tyler and Brittany,
    Thank you for your kind words.
    We love hosting weddings and yet the part we have the hardest time with, is when the couple leaves our property for the last time.
    We truly enjoyed your family and were touched by your In depth history that came with knowing you both. And can your grand parents dance. Right?
    Wishing you the best on this new journey that you embark on together!
    Kim, Monica and Laura

    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!!!!

    the barn 1906's reply:

    Hi Stephanie,
    We so enjoyed working along side of you for your wedding. Your sweet little family is adorable! We too felt that we had met an amazing couple! We are truly honoured that you choose our family to assist you with your important and treasured day.
    May your love together continue to shine brightly.

    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!

    the barn 1906's reply:

    Jackie and Peter

    Thrilled would be the right words to say after hearing your comments of our venue! That you choose to have your wedding at the barn 1906 was delightful for our family in many ways.
    Memories to last forever. May you be richly blessed with a wonderful together for many years to come.

    The Barn 1906: Best Experience

    The Barn 1906 seriously made all of our wedding dreams come true! My husband and I got married at the barn on June 12th, 2022 and we had 150 guests attend our wedding.

    Prior to booking the venue, Kim and her team were available to chat and we were able to visit the barn and get a tour! Kim was available and willing to chat and answer all questions we had the whole year leading up to the wedding. I always felt like our wedding and our questions/concerns were valid and important.

    Prior to the wedding, they send a great questionnaire that really makes sure you have everything sorted and leaves no questions unanswered on the day of! Our wedding was perfect, Kim and her team really make sure your day runs smoothly!

    We were planning on getting married outside, but it had rained the morning of and the previous day so we got married inside the barn! This was the BEST decision and I wish I would have planned this from the start. It made for such an intimate and special experience. If your outdoor wedding gets rained out, have no fear!! You will LOVE the way they transform the indoor space!

    Our guests LOVED the venue and we did as well! I wouldn't have changed one thing about our day!

    We are forever grateful to The Barn 1906 team for making all of our wedding dreams come true!!

    amazing venue with a great team behind it!

    My husband and I got married here 2 weeks ago and we are still swooning over our special day. Kim and her team are nothing but professional and work their hardest to make your event go smoothly.

    The space itself is what had us so in love from the get go - it’s extremely private and the restoration of the barn and bridal sweet is absolutely gorgeous. In terms of value, the only downfall is having to bring in your own bathrooms and rentals on top of an already steep venue fee. This being said though for the beauty of the space and kind and thoughtful team behind it for us it was money well spent.

    Thank you so much Kim, Laura & team for making our day so memorable!

    the barn 1906's reply:

    Holly and Keegan,
    A beautiful day indeed! Thank you for the time you spent doing this review for us. We enjoyed your wedding and look back on it with sheer delight.
    We love to hear when couples share in our love for the heritage found in the bridal suite and amongst our property.
    Hearing your comments on things that we are looking to improve are not lost. You will be pleased to know that we are actively pursuing options to heighten the experience at the barn 1906.
    May your love grow stronger as the days go by.
    All the best,
    Kimberly, Laura and Monica

    August 2021 Wedding

    Kim and her family are an absolutely wonderful team to deal with! Trying to plan a wedding in general is hard, let alone during Covid. They were very flexible and accommodating with the ever changing world, They worked with me to ensure my day was absolutely perfect and what I dreamed of.

    The venue itself is completely breathtaking. You don't need a lot of decorations as it's already so magnificent.

    This place is an absolute beauty and the team is wonderful. I would recommend them to anyone!
