The party was well-organized and the farm was a great venue!!
Barrington Hill is an absolutely breathtaking venue. Our wedding there was gorgeous and our guest all loved the scenery. However, leading up to our wedding day at this beautiful place was not quite as pretty. Looking back, I would have absolutely still chosen the venue for our wedding however, I would recommend not booking the whole package through Barrington. I'm not sure why it happened this way but I really felt like just another number. Barrington provided me with a timeline of events once we had booked with them. Unfortunately, they missed every date on the timeline they created. When there was movement on my wedding, it was because I stayed on top of it, not them. For example, I was supposed to receive catering menus in November however, it wasn't until the last days in January when I sent an email addressing my concerns that there was any movement on it. For a March wedding this is pretty late in the game. I was repeatedly reassured that it was possible to pull everything together in such a short amount of time and while I can appreciate they are able to do this, it's not a comforting feeling as the Bride. Considering I booked the package to avoid wedding planning stress, this was really disappointing and stressful. The week before my wedding, I had to keep reminding them that I needed an invoice to make my final payment. When it finally did come through, 2 days before my wedding, I had to correct them as I had not yet paid for the bar service. It seems odd and unprofessional that I would be asking to pay them when my contract stated the payment should have already been made. The DJ flow chart was another last minute thing, also sent to me 2 days before the wedding when it was supposed to be a week earlier. I really did not enjoy the wedding planning process with Barrington.
I hoped that day of would be without incident after this but that was also not the case. I feel very fortunate to have amazing family and friends that dealt with the day of issues.
