Kind Words about the Willow Brook Experience

We're so honored by what our sweet couples are saying about us!

''Thank you for making our dream wedding come true!''

The Barn at Willow Brook, the best venue in the heart of wine country! We were the first couple who got married there AND I need to say we were honored and the wedding was more than perfect. James and I are in the military, and we had three months to plan the wedding. Finding the venue was hard and we almost gave up on our dream wedding. We booked a tour, met Betsy, and we fall in love with her personality, vision, enthusiasm, and support.  Soon, I had to send James off to training and start the wedding prep by myself. I couldn't do it by myself, but Betsy, Daryl, and Kelly were not just the wedding venue staff, but they also were very caring and helpful - far beyond what you could imagine. Betsy checked up on me almost every day. Kelly, who was my coordinator and now a friend, provided me with so many resources and ran the entire day of the wedding. Yes, the barn is beautiful, and I think everyone should get married there, not only because of the beauty of the venue but because the Willow Brook family actually cares about you and your future spouse's well being and want to provide your dream wedding day!  Many of our guests said it was the best wedding they've been to. The Madden family is not just one of the vendors we worked with for the wedding, but they were and are now our friends and family. I'd like to express my gratitude to God for crossing our path with theirs. 🙏Thank you Willow Brook for making our dream wedding come true.

''Our wedding exceeded our every expectation!''

"From the first time we visited Willow Brook, we were put at ease, yet also energized. Betsy, Daryl and Kelly were responsive, caring and flexible throughout the craziness of planning. We never felt like a burden. Everything ran so smoothly during our wedding day, so we were able to have the most incredible day celebrating. We are so thankful we were able to share our special day with them. The Willow Brook family helped bring joy and appreciation that we will carry with us for our entire lives!"

''I would highly recommend Willow Brook to any couple who is looking to have a stunning, take-your-breath away wedding"!

"Getting married at Willow Brook was an absolute dream come true for my hubby and I! We loved that it is a family owned venue and Betsy and her family cared so much about us- you could just tell by how excited they were for us and for our big day. Betsy was consistently checking in with us to see how we were doing and if we needed any help with anything! She and her family took a true genuine interest in us and we felt right at home! Everything is brand new here and absolutely gorgeous! Both the groom's and bridal suites are decorated just like pottery barn magazine-so beautiful! Kelly,their daughter, was our Day of Coordinator and she did a phenomenal job with helping us get through the day with such ease so that we could really enjoy".

"Our day would not have been the same without you!''

We have included the Willow Brook family as one of our own! We had a wonderful time planning, organizing, working with and celebrating alongside the Maddens all for our special day. They made each step so easy and as relaxing as it could be! The amenities, facilities and furnishings are breathtaking!

Kelly, their Day of Coordinator handled the schedule with professionalism and grace at each step and was proactive in making the best decisions. Our day honestly went off without a glitch and each vendor and guest was so happy with their experience.
My husband and I full heartedly recommend Willow Brook, their team and treating yourself to the whole Weekend Experience!

Where do I begin-everything about Willow Brook is absolutely amazing!''

Not only is this venue stunning, the owners are so sweet and personable - you will instantly feel like part of the family. The barn is breathtaking with tall ceilings, open beams and large windows. It looks like it was designed by Joanna Gaines!

The farmhouse has the most incredible getting ready spaces for both the bride and groom. You will walk in and never want to leave. If you are looking for a charming modern farmhouse venue with incredible views, look no further, you've found your dream!

The Barn at Willow Brook where all our mini wedding dreams would come true!

 My fiancĂ© and I had to make the tough decision to postpone our big wedding to June of 2021 due to COVID-19. Despite the change in the plans, we were still eager to get married in 2020, even if it was just with our immediate family. We were fortunate enough to learn about the Barn at Willow Brook, where all our mini wedding dreams would come true! The property was absolutely beautiful, providing endless backdrops for our photos. The elegant rustic setting includes a perfect layout for any small (or big!) celebration. Even though we had plenty of room for safe and social distancing, Betsy designed the space to feel intimate and special. Florals are always an added bonus, but you don’t need much for a space this breathtaking! We’ve toured many barns and it’s not often you’ll find one that’s pre-decorated with draping and twinkle lights. We also couldn’t get enough of the dedicated bridal and groom suites – the perfect touch for getting ready before walking down the aisle. Even though our wedding day didn’t go as initially planned, we couldn’t be happier with our decision to have a smaller wedding at the Barn at Willow Brook. Thank you Betsy and Daryl!

The venue is stunning - inside and out! 

 I can't say enough about Betsy! She is AWESOME! At a time when the world is in chaos because of COVID and wedding planning is as stressful as it can get, Betsy was a lifesaver. She was very responsive to calls and emails and extremely generous in the level of service she provided. Working with her made my day everything I had imagined. The process was so easy and convenient. No complaints at all. The venue is stunning - inside and out! Very little decor needs to be brought in because the venue shows well on its own. The bridal suite is nothing like I've ever seen, with all of the amenities you could want. I'm so happy that I had the my wedding at the Barn at Willow Brook!

Book Willow Brook, you won’t regret it!

I don’t have enough wonderful things to say about the Barn at Willow Brook. We toured this venue before the barn construction was complete and fell in love with the property. The owners Betsy and Daryl made sure we had everything we needed during the planning process and helped connect us with amazing wedding vendors when we needed resources. They are so devoted to their couples and went above and beyond to support us from the day we booked. The barn includes a spacious loft, fire pit area and beautifully decorated bridal and grooms suites on site. We also loved how rustic the barn felt while still being so convenient to Leesburg hotels and other ameneties for guests. Even when the COVID outbreak hit, they went above and beyond as venue owners to ensure we would be happy on our big day. As a bride I know that choosing a venue is such a huge part of wedding planning and it was the best decision my fiancĂ© and I made. Book Willow Brook, you won’t regret it!I

"We can't say enough good things...! "

This is truly a wonderful wedding venue! The barn is stunning, the grounds are gorgeous, but what you can't see from the photos is the amazing support and love you will get from the Madden family when you become part of the Willow Brook family. We picked the micro wedding package and it was perfect for us. Betsy and Kelly guided us and helped us plan and execute a gorgeous wedding in 6 weeks. We couldn't have done it without them. Then, on the day of the wedding it rained, so everything needed to be moved inside....and the Madden family took care of everything before we even realized what needed to be done. We can't thank them enough and we can't say enough good things about them and the beautiful Barn at Willow Brook!!

Your search for the perfect venue is over!

Attention Northern Virginia brides who want a barn wedding: your search for the perfect venue is over. The Barn at Willow Brook is pure perfection. My husband and I got married at the Barn at Willow Brook on 10/11/20, and we can’t get over how magical our day was. This is a family operation and the ONLY thing the Barn is used for is weddings, and it shows! The owner Betsy and her daughter Kelly made the entire planning process a breeze, they were so responsive and helpful every single step of the way and I’m certain it would not have been possible to plan this wedding in only 6 weeks without them! The entire property is straight out of a magazine perfection, everything is brand new and looks absolutely gorgeous. My husband and I stayed the night in their suite the evening of our wedding and felt like royalty. THANK YOU to our The Barn at Willow Brook family for making our “best day ever” so incredible, we are eternally grateful!

If you are looking for the most beautiful barn this is the place to go!

If you are looking for the most beautiful barn this is the place to go. We booked The Barn at Willow Brook before it was even done being built. The vision this family had has been completely brought to life and more. Our wedding guests continue to be in awe of how beautiful this venue is and we as a couple our so thankful to forever be part of the Willow Brook Family. And Kelly the WB coordinator Talk about a life saver! Questions that come up during regular wedding things one cannot ever guess but during a pandemic! Kelly made me feel calm throughout it all. She was able to answer all questions and responds to email so quick! On the day of the wedding she handled more than we will ever know and our day went off without a hitch. You literally cannot ask for a better person to help you along the way with this process and really make you feel that there isnt anything to worry about

"My husband and I can not say enough amazing things!"

My husband and I can not say enough AMAZING things to truly capture how great this venue is. When we were planning our wedding, having vendors that I connected with and could trust was my top priority. Not only are Betsy, Daryl and Kelly the sweetest, most caring people, they're also extremely professional and accommodating. They make sure that the planning process from booking, to executing your wedding or event goes SO smoothly! We booked the venue when it was still all 2x4s and dirt, but from the very first tour Betsy and the team made sure that we were able to see and share their vision. They did NOT disappoint. The barn and farmhouse are beautiful, clean and timeless. The black and white exterior with wooden finish inside, not to mention their beautiful modern farmhouse with the groomsmen and bridal suites, are absolutely beautiful. The girls suite and guy's suite has everything you could need, and the team at Willowbrook also does everything in their power to make sure your day runs smoothly. Day of and before the wedding, Kelly was an absolute dream to work with. She assisted me in planning my timeline and coordinated all of the production times with my vendors so I didn't have to worry about any of it. Day of she was my go-to gal and she did everything she could to make the day run smoothly (and it did!!!). As I said, we truly can not say enough amazing things about TBAWB. I wish we could re-live our day over and over again, mostly because this team was so awesome to work with. We planned our wedding there but also gained some sweet friends!
