    A Dream Come True Venue

    There isn't enough stars to give a proper review to this Venue and the incredible team of people running it! From the second we walked in we fell in love with every aspect of this place. It's charming, romantic impression leaves you feeling like you're in a fairytale with the rustic structure, twinkling lights and vintage finishing touches.

    The Property allows for many different ceremony location preferences, beautiful scenery for photo's and even has a gorgeous running river through a short path in the woods!

    The owners are SPECTACULAR. I can't speak highly enough about them. Elizabeth and Bob were both so helpful with setting up/rehearsal, accommodating to our preferences and things we needed, quick and responsive the entire 2 years of postponing and replanning as well as went above and beyond as hosts to ensure our weekend there went as smooth as possible. The day was perfect thanks to all their help.

    if you're considering a barn wedding, I highly recommend taking a drive to Hantsport to check this place out!

    Dream Venue!

    Sadie Belle was my husband and my dream venue. It is seriously beautiful, rustic but also elegant. Also the size is wonderfully intimate. Elizabeth put up with my multitude of emails over the course of a year and was quite patient. She was also our JOP and her service was so touching. Highly recommend!

    I cannot recommend them enough

    Elizabeth was a wonderful person to work with, answered all questions in a professional way and was very responsive. They truly made my wedding amazing after all of the stress it was to get to the wedding day!

    The Barn at Sadie Belle Farm's reply:

    Thank you very much Kaitlyn. Your wedding was beautiful and fun. We enjoyed working with you and Jonathan. Your sunflower decor was so bright and happy feeling. Bob and I wish you both all of life’s best. 😊

    If I could give more stars I would!!

    As soon as we walked into the barn we knew we had to put down a deposit and secure our wedding date because it fit our needs so perfectly!! The barn is adorably rustic and cozy!
    We opted for wedding package 1 as we didn't need to use the vintage (and adorable) china and cutlery they are able to provide. The contract we signed clearly outlined price and what was included, and because we got married Oct 9, 2021 Elizabeth answered all of my messages about possible restrictions giving us any info she had at the time. Speaking of the owners, Elizabeth and Bob were so kind to us, perfectly accommodating, accessible and helpful when it came to setting up and tearing down, they were always there but never in the way. Such nice people!!
    We had plenty of time to decorate the barn for the reception and outdoor ceremony space since the weekend package included Friday afternoon, Saturday and Sunday morning (yes - lots of time for take down too!).
    We had our band set up on the back deck (it's huge!), our minister was set up with a microphone to make it easy for our guests to hear the ceremony, and indoors we also had a microphone for speeches and sound system for music that we hooked a phone up to.
    We had 80 guests fit very comfortably on the main level and 20 sit upstairs in the overlooking loft. All of our guests commented on how wonderful the venue was!
    Although not heated, we were able to get a couple propane heaters to keep us toasty until the dance started. And might I say, nothing is better than dancing on barn wood floors!!!!
    My husband and I stayed in their cottage on-site. It would've been great for anyone wanting a place for their bridal party to stay too as it can sleep 6 comfortably, has a little kitchenette, living space and bathroom.
    We are so happy with our decision to book our wedding at Sadie Belle Farm and highly recommend!

    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Breanna. Your review is very encouraging to us and means so much! Congratulations to you and Mackenzie and we wish you all of life’s best❣️

    Amazing venue, excellent hosts and great service

    We got married at Sadie Belle Farm in August 2021 and we were thrilled with the service we got from Elizabeth and Bob, they were top notch. The venue was excellent and we have received dozens of positive remarks from our guests on how beautiful Sadie Belle is. The property offers both outdoor and indoor areas for the ceremony and meal and there is a large deck attached to the barn. We opted to have the fire pit included in our booking and many of the guests thought it was awesome. Overall the experience was 10 out of 10.

    The Barn at Sadie Belle Farm's reply:

    Thank you so much Nicholas for your review. We are so glad that everything was positive for you and we certainly appreciate your kind words. We wish you both every happiness in your marriage and many happy years together.

    Don't get married here.

    The owners were friendly and responsive until we paid our deposit. After they received our deposit, they went weeks without responding to e-mails. Our wedding was planned in June 2020. We were not able to have our wedding due to the pandemic restrictions. The venue offered us the opportunity to reschedule; they gave us limited dates weekend dates for later in 2020 or spring of 2021. These dates did not line up with the availability of our vendors. Moreover, delaying our wedding until 2021 was not an option for us because as an immediate family member was terminal and we wanted to get married before they passed. The venue was extremely rude to us when we wanted to cancel. They refused to return our deposit. The venue is on the same property as the owners residence and has no heat. The owners were eligible to receive support from the government and incurred no cost, yet they still are holding on to our deposit. It feels criminal. The owners are not empathetic, organized or accommodating.

    The Barn at Sadie Belle Farm's reply:

    We feel that this review is extremely unfair. Firstly, we are very quick to respond to any and all correspondence from our couples, as is pointed out in many others reviews. If an email or message got lost, we are very sorry, but are confused as to which emails to which the writer is referring.
    Secondly, any weddings that needed to be postponed in early spring due to the pandemic were given first choice at any dates we had available during the same year and given opportunity to rebook up to two years in the future. We even made weekday dates available for any dates in 2020 that were not already booked.
    The whole world was struggling with many unknowns, including how long the restrictions would last, so in consultation with other venue owners, we applied the same policies as others, in offering to move their dates and accommodate their weddings to the very best of our ability.
    We are never rude to any of our clients. We value them and do whatever we can to help make their vision of the perfect wedding, a reality. If not refunding their deposit is considered being rude, we are sorry you feel that way. We do have a signed contract from every client whereby they agree and understand that their deposit is non refundable.
    Lastly, the writer has no idea of what our costs, losses, expenses or compensation are and were, and their opinion is just that, an opinion that has no basis in the truth.
    It is very disappointing to read such a terrible review when we work so hard to do our very best for our clients. I guess it is to be expected, as every business will have a few who want to hurt you.
    We are a small family run business, just getting started, and we hope if this review taints your opinion of us, that you will give us an opportunity to prove otherwise. The writer of this review in their last line states that we are not empathetic, organized or accommodating. This statement is the antithesis of what we consistently hear from our clients. We are very sorry they feel that way.

    Could not have been happier we picked this place!

    We planned our wedding around securing this venue, moving it up several months because I loved it so much. Bob and Elizabeth were so easy and helpful and they orchestrated everything wonderfully! The venue is so pretty it doesn't need a lot of decorations to look amazing. When you book here, you get the day before and the morning after as well, so you can decorate stress free and clean up the next morning too. There is a property on site to rent to stay in (you are about 20 minutes from Wolfville which is the closest place if your guests want to stay somewhere) but you as the wedding party can stay there and have your wedding night there too. It was perfect and we absolutely loved it!

    The Barn at Sadie Belle Farm's reply:

    Thank you so much, Jessica. We loved having you here. You, your family and friends are wonderful and we are so glad everything turned out as you had hoped. 😊
