Wedding Weekend

Booking Your Event at Starry Night Barn


It’s as easy as one, two, three.

Give us a call or inquire with us to answer initial questions, set-up a tour and check the events calendar to see if your dates are available.  We maintain the cottages calendar here but we like to coordinate and reserve wedding weekends and extended cottage stays through Starry Night Barn & Studios, so please inquire with us to make those reservations.  We can accommodate events up to 299 people.

Learn More about the process

To book a wedding weekend at Starry Night Barn, please call or e-mail to ensure the dates you’re looking for are available. To make your reservation, you need know the following details about your event:

• Do you want to reserve Friday and Saturday nights in the cottages or Saturday and Sunday?
• Do you want to add additional dates to your stay in the cottages? Please note that we rent out the cottages to other guests when events are not occurring so additional dates should be booked up front to secure your timeframe. You do not need to book both cottages other than the weekend nights.
• Will you be having an onsite ceremony or will the ceremony be held elsewhere?
• Will you be using Starry Night Barn’s sound equipment?

Once your event details are decided, we will develop a contract to fit your individual event. We require a 50% nonrefundable deposit of your total event costs and the remainder is due 45 days prior to your event. Clients have 10 days from the date requesting a written (e-mailed) reservation for a wedding weekend date to submit a signed contract along with a deposit.  Deposits can be made via credit card with a 2% processing fee, check, money order or cash.

We will connect you with our day-of-events coordinator. The coordinator will be your go-to, onsite logistics manager and will work with you to learn and manage your day-of schedule and work with your service providers and planner, if applicable.

Plan away! We will request copies of your service contracts as you contract with local caterers, rental agencies, etc., so that we are fully aware of our property’s use and so that providers receive our property policies and can plan accordingly. You can call to set-up times to stop by the Barn and property during your planning process – just call ahead and book a time.

Relax and have fun with the planning and process.

Provide Starry Night Barn & Studios with copies of your insurance rider and bartender information (if contracted separately from the caterer).
