  • Blake Morrin was absolutely wonderful to work with for our wedding at the Wakefield Barn. From the very beginning of the wedding planning process, she was there to guide us through all the little decisions and make suggestions based on her expertise in the wedding business. Her responses were prompt and friendly, and extremely helpful for someone who felt a little lost in planning a wedding! When my mom and I met with Blake in person on several occasions leading up to the big day, it felt just like we were chatting with a friend!! She is so easy and pleasant to be with and knew exactly how to help us sort out all the details and logistics. She always made me feel like my opinion was the most important thing and that we could do almost anything to make it the perfect wedding day. When it came to the wedding day itself, Blake was invaluable - I really don't know what we would have done without her!! She made everything run smoothly and feel effortless for me, my fiance, and my family. Sh... Read more

  • My husband and I got married at the barn on September 28th of 2019 and it was beautiful! The venue is so unique and breathtaking. Blake Morrin was our wedding planner and she is so amazing. From the late night phone calls, lunch and dinner meetings, and running around with my mom and me to all the vendors to make sure everything was perfect- we cannot thank her enough! My favorite part about working with Blake was that she didn’t feel like a wedding planner, but a friend. The day was so special and beautiful all thanks to Blake and the beautiful Wakefield Barn.

  • This venue and the service that comes with it is 10/10. Everything about our wedding was made perfect thanks to our coordinator, Sarah Skrobialowski. She contacted all of our vendors so we wouldn't have to worry about it, always had great suggestions and advice, and made the entire experience memorable and easy going. Instead of being stressed with everything I thought I would have to do she was right there always with a solution and there to help. She always had an updated timeline which was extremeley helpful and would answer any texts/calls right away even on her maternity leave!!!! She is simply amazing, the venue is breathtaking, and the experience is one you will remember for life. I am truly thankful for her assistance and guidance throughout our entire engagment preparing for our big day.

  • I worked with Black Morrin as my wedding coordinator and had the best experience. From the beginning of planning my wedding to the final day Blake was there whenever I needed to answer my questions and provide recommendations. The Wakefield Barn was able to accommodate all my wants and needs. I could not recommend this venue and planner more!

  • We booked the venue while under construction, but it was worth it. The main room is amazing and looks even better in person. The food and service on the day of the wedding were also excellent.

  • What an unbelievable venue to get married at. The staff that runs the Historic Wakefield Barn are Amazing. My wife and I could not have asked for a better wedding planner, thanks Blake. The vendors they recommended were great. All around a great establishment. if you are looking for a rustic outdoor wedding or just want a beautiful indoor wedding this place has it all. The grounds are well kept and beautiful. There are plenty of options if you to choose from. I highly recommend checking this place out. You will not be disappointed.

  • My husband and I fell in love with this venue while it was still under construction. Something nerve wracking to take on while planning a wedding, but we knew that this venue would be made into something breathtaking. Our guests could not stop raving about how unique and beautiful the space was. The staff was so great- they would check in on us and made sure we were taking in the moment and helping in any way possible. The catering was so professional- they were so attentive to my husband, our guest and myself. During cocktail hour while many of us were out taking photos- they were there to serve us appetizers and drinks. They always made sure we had enough to eat, had a glass always full, and a smile on our face. And they were all so friendly! The food was amazing- everyone’s plates were empty. They even made sure my husband and I had food to take home, which we very much appreciated

  • This venue made my wedding my dream wedding. All of guests were simply stunned by how beautiful it was. The photos taken are gorgeous due in part to the venue. Working with the staff there was incredible and they made sure I was always happy and satisfied. The onsite getting ready suite was wonderful and made the day so easy and fun. I could not recommend this venue more. It was simply PERFECT.

  • I got married here last October, and I have to say that my wedding day was beautiful, and memorable. I have waited to write this review because I wanted to be sure to accurately express my feelings and talk about my experience with this venue without the high of my wedding day clouding my memories of the stress and unnecessary pain my family and I endured while dealing with the current management. First let me say that this venue is truly a gem. It is absolutely gorgeous and unique, and all the guest complimented us on that fact. Overall the day ran smoothly, and mostly went as planned all thanks to the wedding planners I had to hire literally 60 days before the wedding day, because I fired my current planner. Going into booking an under-construction venue, I knew that there were some bumps in the road, and that was to be expected. We booked this venue Oct. 2017, and hadn't seen it again since Aug. 2018, almost a year later. We were continuously told that it would be ‘better’ to vi... Read more

    Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Feedback is what makes it possible for us to do everything we can to accommodate our future clients and make their day the best that it can be. Our venue ‘is’ truly a gem as you said. Management agrees wholeheartedly with that fact and works diligently with the owners to continue to recommend that construction deadlines are met. These deadlines are vital to the venue and our management team regularly communicates with the owners to ensure that the deadlines are met to the best of the general contractor's abilities. Though we have constant communication with them, we are not able to bring those items to fruition ourselves and all progress must be approved and overseen by general contractors and the owners. I am thankful that you personally met with one of the owners. You were able to convey the importance and urgency of the items that you wanted completed for the day of your dreams from a client’s point of view - not just on behalf of management. I also appreciate your mother-in-law reaching out to us about our venue for a corporate event after our meetings. We hope that we have the opportunity to create a beautiful event for her company as well.

  • Initially I wanted to give this no stars, however our wedding was beautiful (so they earned one), but everything up until that point was stressful/miserable to deal with. -Plenty of overpromising and not delivering. They told us that there would be an elevator, which was required by our band and several other vendors given that the reception was on the second floor. They told us weeks before the wedding that they couldn’t get one due to the infrastructure of the barn. You’d think an engineer would have already cleared the building for an elevator if they were promising that they were getting one. -Inexperienced management. There was a shift of management and we had to readdress all of our specific details with the new contact midway through our planning process, which elevated suspicions of poor management and the venue not being ready on time. -Multiple times we requested to meet with the owner to circumvent the lack of transparency and authority that was being provide...
