These are typically outdoor events held on the patios and decks/lawn, with the Berkley Barn as a backup option. Includes venue, all tables, and chairs.

Want a great rustic look for your event? Look no further than our rustic wine barrels. They are great as cocktail tables when combined with our glass tops, and can be used as entrance pieces, floral stands, or as stands for a rustic wooden door table.

We have a beautiful crystal chandelier that can be hung as a centerpiece in the barn.
