The Inside Scoop
FROM THE KNOT EDITORS
The First Look
Weddings at The Berry Barn in Amite, Louisiana, surround you in country elegance. When you're looking for something a little off the beaten path, a tiny bit rustic with just the right amount of sophistication thrown in for good measure, The Berry Barn is the place. With expansive space to accommodate 300 guests or more on the sprawling acreage, you can plan an indoor or outdoor ceremony and reception at The Berry Barn.
The Rustic Chapel. Rough-hewn wood beams make up this appealing open chapel structure situated just outside the barn. Your guests fill in the green space behind the chapel, sitting on wooden church pews.
The Carriage House. This distinctive event space can have the feel of indoors or outdoors depending on the weather. You can choose to have the barn doors on every side up to allow the fresh air to fully enter the space or have them down to enclose the building completely. This space accommodates up to 200 guests and a caterer’s kitchen is inside it.
The Barn. Wide-open spaces and exposed wood and beams set a country stage inside the barn. Wagon wheel chandeliers and twinkling string lights make for enticing ambience throughout this space. A built-in dance floor is ready for dancing and a bar and stage are also permanent fixtures. The venue uses massive wine barrels as cocktail tables and the space utilizes climate control for year-round comfort.

We had our wedding here on November 6th and it could not have been more perfect! The barn and grounds are absolutely beautiful and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. My girls and I got ready in the cabin, while the groom and his fellas had the loft to themselves. Both locations provided a peaceful atmosphere to relax and get ready in. Could not recommend this venue more!
I had the pleasure of attending my niece's wedding at the Berry Barn on December 17, 2016. Before seeing this venue I was skeptical; however, The Berry Barn turned out to provide the MOST BEAUTIFUL VENUE I've ever seen. The outdoor area for the ceremony was beautiful, quaint & elegant - all at once. The rustic barn for the reception decorates beautifully and turned out to also be both rustic and elegant. This setting truly contributed to the most gorgeous wedding and reception I have ever attended in my 58 years. I would highly recommend The Berry Barn to anyone looking for a truly unique and lovely experience!
Beautiful barn venue with nice staff.
Married this past December. Very nice owners and beautiful barn. We booked it very quickly within our venue search. All of our out of state guest absolutely loved the barn and the animals surrounding. Had a few malfunctions throughout the day but nothing that stopped us from enjoying our wedding or making it a horrible venue. Things happen sometimes and yet everything still turned out nicely! Thank you Berry Barn staff.
Attended a wedding at this location and helped with decor. The barn was beautiful but they had too much going on the same day as this wedding...birthday party, a separate event put on by the venue, and another event going on. We had to clean trash up right before the ceremony from a previous event that took place the day before. I've heard good things about the place, just feel they need to be more consistent in what they provide to their customers and feel they should not have so many events going on at one time. Consistentency and happy customers are key to the wedding industry.
Absolutely beautiful venue! We had our wedding here on October 9, 2016 and everything was absolutely perfect! The cabin was a great place to get ready, all the animals were too cute and the barn was the perfect combination of rustic elegance.
More than just a barn! This is a true venue! My wedding was last weekend and everything was clean and stunning. Tawnya was on hand to help throughout the evening. The entire processs was effortless here. This barn can be dressed up (which we did) or can be designed to look more rustic. It's stunning and we received so many compliments! Victoria Bruno James
My experience with everyone at The Berry Barn was amazing. Our wedding was May 2, 2015 and it was beyond anything I had dreamed. Elizabeth was awesome and went above and beyond to accommodate any need that we had. The cabin on site was perfect for me and my bridesmaids to get ready in on the day of the wedding and it made for great pictures. All of our guests (around 350+) had a great time and swooned over this venue. I would recommend this venue to anyone. They truly made my day memorable and special--completely stress free. Perfect for a rustic chic wedding! <3
The Berry Barn was amazing for a rustic elegant wedding! I got married July 2nd and Tanya was my coordinator! It was better than I ever could have imagined! Everyone had so much fun and said how beautiful it was. The venue is very large and there is a lot of space for dancing, eating, and chatting! My wedding was absolutely perfect thanks to Tanya and the Berry Barn!
Meet The Owner
Thank you for your interest in my venue. My family and I own a working farm and sell produce all over the great state of Louisiana. We started the barn as part of our "Agri-tourism" activities where families come from all over to pick the freshest strawberries and vegetables, visit with our farm animals and enjoy the peaceful, country side. My husband Kevin and I have three beautiful children and spend most of our time taking care of our farm and spending time together. We hope to visit you soon! Congratulations on this milestone and God Bless!
