Paula is everything you would want in a host and more. Not only is she super responsive and willing to answer all of my questions, but she is also so kind and truly loves what she does. She has turned a beautiful piece of heaven into a lovely wedding venue with beautiful views of the mountains all around you. She also has a beautiful garden right by the barn and a mountaintop view that she personally drove us to after our ceremony (~5min drive) where we took quite a few pictures. She went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day went perfect, and that even included allowing our wedding coordinator to cut some of her flowers to place them on our tables when our florist forgot to bring all of our flowers. We had our rehearsal dinner there the night before at the hay barn on property, and it allowed us to enjoy the venue for a few more hours. Highly recommend! Other highlights include a 4 bedroom cabin on property that you can rent, where we chose to have all of my bridesmaids stay in the night before the wedding. They also have a cute honeymoon suite for the night of the wedding to enjoy time with your new husband/wife and it is walking distance from the barn (literally right next door!). We enjoyed this space so much and highly recommend Paula and The Barn on the New River. Our guests had such a great time and continue to rave about how beautiful the property is!
