Do you remember the food at any wedding you’ve been to? Probably not. Well our guests do! Even 3 months after our wedding, our guests are still raving about how delicious their meal was. If you’re looking to have a wedding (or any event) in Vermont, you should not look any further than the Barnard Inn. The people are friendly, the location is beautiful, and the food is freaking amazing! We were looking for a venue for our fall wedding and we only had a few requirements. We wanted an outdoor wedding at a venue that didn’t feel like a “cookie cutter” wedding venue, that would let us extend the wedding past 10pm, and that could serve our guests great food. Will and Corinna at the Barnard Inn checked every single one of our boxes. The property (restaurant, barn, garden, and pond) is very well maintained and absolutely beautiful. There is a gazebo by the pond that makes for a stunning wedding ceremony backdrop. Will took the time to sit down with us and the parents of the bride to go over the wedding menu and other details of the venue. He listened to all of our concerns, took notes, and was able to address them far beyond our expectations. From making sure there were enough bartenders serving our specially requested drinks, to having plenty of meat in the chicken pot pies, Will was on top of everything. The bride + entourage got ready in the recently renovated space below the barn and Will made some luncheon food for the bridal party to eat throughout the day, which was delicious and we had to stop ourselves from overeating. Corinna came in every once in a while to check on things, and even went out of her way to bring the bride (who was sick) some extra tea, honey, and lemon. We decided on pumpkin risotto, chicken pot pies, and braised short ribs for our wedding meal (as well as horderves during the cocktail hour) and we were not disappointed. All of the food was locally sourced, and the quality and presentation were what you would expect from a high-end restaurant. As an example, the risotto could have been simply plated, but each one was served in a miniature pumpkin! When the meals came out, everyone was envious of everyone else’s food because it all looked so good. Even though we had 100+ people at our wedding, the food was served to all our guests hot, simultaneously, and on time. We could not have asked for more from a wedding venue and are so incredibly happy with everything that Will and Corinna did to help make our wedding as special and amazing as it was.
We fell in love with The Barnard Inn as soon as we arrived and saw it for the first time in person -- absolutely gorgeous property complete with a pond/gazebo, beautiful flowers and garden, and barn. The photos online do not do it justice. We were able to eat at the restaurant during this visit and the food was outstanding. The decision was made! We planned our wedding in 3 months so, needless to say, it was a stressful time... but from the moment we started working with Corinna and Will, we were immediately put at ease. We did not use a wedding planner, so we did a lot of communicating with Corinna during the process and she helped us figure out everything we needed to do in the short period of time we had. When it was time for menu planning, Will sat down with us and listened to our vision of what kind of food/beverage we wanted, down to making special meals for those guests with allergies. He was so thoughtful and guided us through our indecisiveness with incredible patience and professionalism. The day of the wedding could not have been more perfect - and I'm sure a lot of people say that about their own wedding - but we truly mean it, in every way. We had our ceremony by the pond/under the gazebo, then cocktails on the lawn, dinner under a tent, and dancing in the barn. It was so unique and fun to take advantage of using all of the different spaces the Barnard Inn had to offer. The locally sourced food was AMAZING, drinks flowed generously, and the service from her staff was flawless. We had a band and rocked the barn late into the night - GREAT sound and space for dance floor. Many guests told us it was the best wedding they have ever been to, and we don't think they were just saying that! We plan to go back and visit The Barnard Inn the next time we are in VT, and for years to come!
