Barn Weddings & Venues in New England

New England is a farming region, and some of its retired barns have been transformed into wedding reception venues, with an atmosphere that will warm your heart and charm your guests at a rustic wedding. These post-and-beam structures have wooden flooring, tall ceilings with beams dripping with sparking lights, raised hay lofts converted to ceremony and party spaces. The entire place brims with a feeling of family, community, and old times – except that they usually have a modern catering kitchen, staging, a bar, and accommodation for audio-visual needs. Make yours a warm and memorable wedding experience. Who wouldn’t join a barn dance?

A detail-focused wedding planner will help you with everything from local vendors to choices in linens and rehearsal dinner menus. Guests who stay at the resort will enjoy amenities from an indoor pool to tennis and racquetball courts.

Red-and-white barn a welcoming atmosphere for wedding celebrations

When they say the Inn at Manchester is as pretty as a picture, they are not exaggerating. And nothing on the picturesque property is quite as lovely as the Celebration Barn. Warmly welcoming wedding guests with its red and white exterior and views of the Green Mountains, the barn’s interior features hand-stained and distressed pine paneling, exposed beams, a modern catering kitchen and space for up to 150 people. Imagine it with lights strung from the beams, echoing those flickering on tables. Set on four park-like acres, the barn also has a covered terrace and an outdoor fire pit as well as three guest rooms (including a suite with a sunken tub, if you are thinking honeymoon).

Post-and-beam barn will bring ‘rustic luxe’ to your wedding ceremony, reception

And the resort’s Barn wedding venue is the perfect example of that style: a beautiful post-and-beam barn with exposed rough-hewn beams, pine flooring, a wall of windows and rustic light fixtures where your reception guests are served from an exquisite, sophisticated catering menu. Upstairs, the Loft serves as the ideal ceremony site, with its custom-made birch arbor and floor-to-ceiling bay windows showing off the lake and mountains. Guest accommodations include lodge rooms, cabins and guesthouses. And the resort’s full-service spa specializes in wedding hair, makeup (and relaxation).
