Best Barns for Weddings in Northern Virginia

I recently spent 8 hours checking out barns all over Loudoun County for my new clients. We were looking for a barn with character, good bathrooms, and decent access to lodging. We looked at 6 together, and the bride had toured 2 others on her own. In the end, they picked Tranquility Farm because they loved the on-site lodging options. But there are so many great options out there! Here is a brief list. If you want to hear more about our tours, or want to go on one yourself, email me!

Kalero Vineyards – great patio, nicely renovated barn with great bathrooms!
