Barr Mansion Tasting and Open House Events

Posted on: April 15th, 2011 by admin No Comments

We recently hosted our First Harvest Tasting and our first Open House in our newly constructed Artisan Ballroom.  Both went off without a hitch!  Couples hosting their weddings here in the next few months enjoyed an evening of food, food, food at the First Harvest Tasting!  We featured new food items like Local Greens and Blue Cheese Truffles and a Thai Halibut and Shrimp Curry.  Six different cake flavors finished off the evening on a sweeter note.

The Open House was also a success.  STEMS Floral Design provided vintage inspired decor complete with a moss covered chandelier!  The ballroom was previewed in its full glory at dusk, showcasing the romantic ambience that so many brides desire. Brad from Hyde Park Photography was present at both events to capture these beautiful images!

A HUGE thanks to STEMS Floral Design and Hyde Park Photography!

Julianne and Forrest were married at the Rose Arbour on a slightly chilly but sunny March day.  The two shared a very touching ceremony and everyone could tell how excited they were to be marrying each other.  Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed appetizers including Baby Beef Burgers with Cabernet Onions, Pulled Pork Tacos, and Thin Crust Tomato Pizza.  The bride’s cake was a very grand five tier cake with white roses in between the layers.  Julianne and Forrest, thanks for being so incredibly sweet and supportive through the planning process.  From the entire Barr Mansion staff, we wish you all the happiness in the world!
