“The Barn on New River was the absolutely perfect venue for our wedding! The view of the Appalachian Mountains, paired with the landscaping made for the most beautiful background for our outdoor ceremony. The Barn itself was wonderful for a reception as well- beautiful wood and elegant chandeliers made it great for the elegant and natural vibe I was going for. All our guests fit perfectly for both dinner and dancing, with the patio being a great outdoor space for cocktail hour and extra dancing at the reception. Paula (and her husband Mark) are a true pleasure to work with! Paula has wonderful vendor suggestions and is there for the bride every step of the planning process, while Mark is the jack-of-all-trades handyman who jumped to our aid more than once! We stayed in the cabin on the property the week leading up to the wedding, and it was not only very nice and well priced, but the perfect home base for last minute planning and details. Over all, our guests were floored by the beauty of the venue, loved the tiny touches Paula and Mark have thought of, and both my husband and my bridal party loved the getting ready spaces for both bride and groom. Everyone had a blast, and we would do it all over again- I can’t recommend The Barn on New River and Paula enough!” – Elizabeth
