I am looking for a rustic barn venue in southeastern PA for my wedding next summer. Has anyone had their wedding or been to a wedding at the Stone Barn in Kennett Square? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I am also looking for a rustic barn setting in SE PA for our fall2012 wedding! I’ve looked at (online only) The stone Barn… looks like a fantastic location. It’s on my list of places to check out.. and actually pretty high up. I love the pics of the outdoor ceremony location.
Are you having your ceremony and reception at the same locaton?
Not sure of how eastern in PA you are looking (we are in the very SE tip of the state, my family is from Baltimore, so we are looking for something in between if possible.. or in the lower Chester Co area). Have you looked into The Snug Hollow farm, The Duke Farm, Paradox Vineyard or Lime Spring Farm? All are on my list of places to check out at the moment.
Looking forward to hearing about your planning! and CONGRATS!

The Mill at the Stone Barn is a beautiful rustic venue for a wedding, if you don’t mind paying $13,000.00 for meals that are overcooked, small portions, with absolutely no culinary presentation and that are second-rate at best.
I don’t know what’s going on at the Stone Barn – what we were presented with at the tasting was a far cry from what we actually got and reminds me of the old “Bait-and-Switch” game. This was a total disappointment because I’ve eaten at the Stone Barn before and loved their food!
We paid nearly $6000 for 85 people to get filets – my son-in-law held his up to me during dinner and said “filet or hockey puck?”, my husband’s was charred and had the flavor of grilled cardboard he said.
Brides-to-be, and parents please heed this warning – if you do have your wedding at the Stone Barn, I would not pay the final check until after your reception – you may end up in our shoes – paying $20,000.00 for a beautiful backdrop for your pictures and be incredibly disappointed.
I think, no I know, you can do better elsewhere, especially if you actually want to be able to have the meal experience you thought you would get and sadly paid for.
Similar to the another review on this site – we also were working with Peggy at the Stone Barn and one day were told we would be working with Jim and Alex from that day forward. The explanation given to us and our wedding planner was that Peggy decided to retire – pretty sure this isn’t the truth.
So buyers beware – seems things at the Stone Barn are taking a turn for the worst – just wish my daughter’s day could have been what it should have been – perfect. I don’t want any other parents to have the experience we did.
