The Historic Barns at Nipmoose was the absolute ideal location for our wedding venue and surpassed our expectations for how beautiful and magical we hoped our setting would be. Barbara and Connie were not only amazingly detailed, organized and thorough throughout the execution process, they were also so warm and loving that they have become an indelible part of our memories of our big day. We could not recommend this venue or its wonderful staff more highly. They are without question the very best in the business!” — Abbey + Samantha
