For couples wanting their wedding day to be outside, a barn wedding may be their perfect solution. Barn weddings are becoming more and more popular and in high demand. Not only do barn weddings tend incorporate history, but they offer a great balance of an indoor/outdoor wedding day.

The Octagon Barn Services
The Octagon Barn was built in 1892 and had a full restoration in 2016. After this restoration, the owners chose to use the Barn as a wedding venue. The barn itself was nearly completely disassembled to be restored into the beauty you see today. With its unique shape and never-ending views, weddings at The Octagon Barn enjoy the incredible views and rustic charm.
As a full-service venue, the staff of The Octagon Barn allow their clients a Friday through Sunday escape. Additionally, the bride and groom are able to enjoy more of their wedding experience with full services offered at a smaller venue. Accommodations include space for up to 200 guests, clean up services, shuttle services, assistance with guest parking, and more.
This classic event space has a mix of old world charm, modern amenities, and a lush, modern setting for the couples’ wedding day.
