Over 2 years before our wedding date we chose The Barn At Silver Oaks to be our wedding venue site unseen, as we moved from Maine to San Diego and only go back home about once a year. We'd made a spread sheet of what multiple venues had/pros/cons and we came to one of the best decisions we could have made for our wedding! Not only did we get the most beautiful wedding venue with all of our must haves (having the venue all weekend- Rehearsal and a place to get ready day of, day of coordination, etc.), but we met two of the kindest most genuine people in Gene and Veronica, the owners of the Barn. We had some trouble with our caterer/bartender who cancelled our contract 2 weeks before our wedding and Gene & Veronica worked tirelessly to help us find replacements. Our wedding day went flawlessly and if guests didn't already know our stressful situation they never would have known so much of our wedding had changed at the last minute. Gene and Veronica made our day exceed our expectations. Multiple guests told us this was one of the best and most seamless weddings they had been do. Thank you Gene & Veronica for the best day!

I looked online at every barn in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut; we even toured 8! Let me tell you there are a lot of barn wedding venues, but none compare to this. From the first meeting with Gene, who owns the venue with his wife Veronica, we knew there was something different about this place.
In regards to the actual facility it is the perfect place to have a wedding it is well maintained, clean, and beautiful. The entire venue is gorgeous to take pictures in with all the landscaping they do, we had our wedding in August and there were flowers everywhere. Our guests still talk about how beautiful the inside of the barn is, the chandeliers and drapes create such a romantic vibe. The outside with the fire pit and couches offer a seamless transition from inside to outside. We loved that during our wedding guests were able to hang outside when they needed a breather and do so in comfort.
Gene and Veronica are so amazing. Both care so so much about their couples and want you to have exactly what you envision for your special day. You won’t just be weekend number, they really want to get to know their couples. My husband is military so when we first started our search we were in New England, but soon after moved to Florida. I really felt I could call either Gene or Veronica looking for advice and trust they would give me their honest answer. They both invest so much time, effort, and money into this place. From when we first saw it to when they got married they made changes to help better the venue and told us of all their progress on the way (such as adding those steps to ease in getting to the ceremony and the beautiful door so you can make your grand entrance). If you have space in your budget have Veronica be at least your day of wedding planner. SHE IS WORTH HER WEIGHT IN GOLD. I didn’t have to worry about one thing during the wedding such as was the caterer there, did the flowers get done how I wanted, she handled everything so flawlessly. You are in such great hands with Gene and Veronica, they really want your day to be as special as you do.
I truly can’t rave more about this place. If I had to do it all over again I would do it all the same, with the exception of my brother in law ripping his pants seconds before the ceremony. This is a beautiful venue with owners who really care about their couples.
