A Wedding of Your Design
The renovated, Other Barn in Oakland Mills is a spacious reception site filled with rustic charm. Originally a dairy barn, it now provides a unique, elegant but warm atmosphere that is the perfect place to celebrate life’s special events. The Other Barn is ideal for an outdoor ceremony, wedding receptions, and rehearsal dinners.
You are welcome to bring in a caterer of your choice, or if you wish, provide the food and beverages yourself. The Other Barn offers a full kitchen, a large ice machine and ice chests. We set up and take down the tables and chairs for you. The table coverings are provided by you and put in place by you, your decorator or your caterer. A cozy bridal room offers the perfect space for the bride's last minute touch ups. An administrative staff person will always be on duty throughout your function.
Originally the hayloft of the barn, the Loft, retains the original wooden high beam ceilings and features a large hardwood dance floor. Enter the Loft through the distinctive silo staircase and capture some unique photos. Beautiful earth tones and maple benches make the room warm and inviting. This comfortably elegant room can accommodate up to 220 guests.
Adjacent to the Smithy/Tack Room, is the flower-filled courtyard which creates the perfect backdrop for your memorable day. The Courtyard is a wonderful location for photographs and for guests to enjoy a bit of the outdoors. White, fan-backed chairs would be provided for your wedding guests for an additional fee.
This fully carpeted room, on our main level, provides an ideal space for meetings and intimate gatherings. The Smithy/Tack room comfortably seats up to 65 guests or is the perfect space for cocktails before your reception. The many glass doors, that look out on to a flower-filled courtyard were once used for the cows to enter the barn.
