4 Reasons Why a Barn Makes The Best Venue

It’s plain and simple. For the remarkable bride & groom looking to host their private wedding in a nontraditional event venue, barns should without a doubt, be at the top of their list. Here’s why it’s easy to see: barns offer their own private estate, the unique interior is an instant conversation starter, and, most of all, the atmosphere offers timeless elegance! Read on and explore four reasons why a barn makes the absolute best venue.

The Pavilion at Orchard Ridge Farms

It’s a Natural Fit. No need for a grand explanation on this one. Everyone loves the rustic, timeless and unpretentious atmosphere of a classic American barn. The beauty of surrounding rolling hills, fresh farm air, and dramatic timbers of the barn structure is a bold design in itself. You could save thousands on a design scheme by not having to drape off unwanted walls, or decorate every aspect of a venue. A barn will do the work for you!

Great for Guest Lists of all Sizes. There is plenty of open, comfortable space in a barn for a grandiose affair — At The Pavilion, 10,000 square feet of open space to be exact! Or, are you planning on hosting a smaller wedding of say, 75 guests?… a rustic barn with grand feasting tables and tons of candle light is the most romantic setting for intimate “I Do’s”.

Help Local Thrive.  We could go on for days about how great keeping it local is, but in Layman’s terms — Studies show that when you “keep it local”, significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses, service providers, and farms. This is turn continues to strengthen the economic base of the community… It is awesome! Oh, and we can’t forget to mention, Henrici’s Catering uses local farming products for your menu, allowing for Farm to Table!

Escape the Hustle and Bustle. The last thing anyone wants to worry about on their wedding day is traffic and time crunches. The rural environment of the countryside will eliminate the need for traffic control, and hey, the free parking isn’t too bad either!
