Our Story

Hornbaker Gardens was established in 1987 as a destination garden center tucked among 40 acres of peaceful property. Over the years, it has developed into beautiful botanical gardens and an arboretum. After hosting several outdoor wedding ceremonies, it was time to build a permanent structure to create a space for receptions as well. In 2015, The Barn was up and ready to be filled with all the love and magic that go into a wedding day.

The Barn is a four-season event center that was built with your wedding in mind. Say, “I do,” on the manicured meadow surrounded by nature’s beauty, and then walk to The Barn to start the party! Rustic on the outside, but elegant on the inside, The Barn features grand windows looking out onto the gardens along with private suites where you can prepare for your special day. Air-conditioning and heating guarantee that you and your guests will dine and celebrate in comfort. The large covered patio provides a place to kick the evening off with drinks and hors d’oeuvres, and step outside later to enjoy the evening under the stars.

“100000% recommend this wonderful venue. From the moment we toured the place until the final hours of our night, the staff at The Barn at Hornbaker Gardens exceeded our expectations in every way possible.”

Dream Venue

“This venue is an absolute DREAM in every way possible. The venue is GORGEOUS alone, but the surrounding area for photos, just wow. The beautiful colors of fall were stunning in our photos.”

Perfect Venue!

This place was beyond what we had hoped to have for a wedding venue. From the building to the grounds, there were countless places to take pictures from. The staff was just as great as the location too. Wouldn’t have chosen to get married anywhere else around here! It was truly one of the best days of my life so far and a day I will happily never forget!
