HOUSE HISTORY

Barker House is a beautiful wedding venue with an indelible place in American history. With roots dating back to 1634, part of the original dwelling is said to be the oldest English-style house in the United States.

Your Incredible Wedding

While it seems like it should be simple, wedding pricing can be surprisingly complex. We believe that you should be able to get all your pricing upfront so you can easily find out what everything costs and decide what fits within your budget.

That’s our philosophy, which is why we’ll give you a unique pricing proposal during your personalized venue tour. Our team will provide you with all the details and help you customize your package. This allows us to gain a clear understanding of your wedding wish list and help you clearly see how your wedding can take shape.

If you'd like ballpark pricing now, simply download our PDF to get a general idea of the costs for your wedding. Keep in mind that these figures are approximate since all our packages are fully customizable. You can add or subtract services to tailor your event to your needs. 

Our pricing is based on four areas. First, you decide on your package level and multiply it by the number of guests. Next, you add the ceremony and venue price, which varies depending on the season and day of the week you're considering. Finally, you'll add your admin fee and state tax. As you can see, we include all the big-ticket items like the venue, the décor, and the catering so your wedding budget can work harder.
