I have booked this vendor for my wedding. We rented the patio, and the center for our ceremony and reception. My future mother in law, is dealing with the contracts and stuff, but the lady is very responsive and helpful to us. We were able to go see it and look around, as well as take pictures. It is BEAUTIFUL, and the staff is very nice and professional. They do have some rules about decor , like you can only hang things from the wire ceiling, no tape or anything or they keep your deposit, but I am so excited to work with them! I give them only the highest review for how we have been treated this far!

Barber parks event center is a beautiful venue. We thought it would be the perfect back drop for the outdoor wedding we'd been dreaming about. Candy was super helpful and very upfront about everything. However they are super strict about things and not very flexible. They only allow you to use one bar for your wedding and they were horrible. They were not responsive to our requests or inquiries and they are very over priced because they have a monopoly on the place. The Bartenders were rude to our guests and did not work with our wedding planner on what we were asking for. They also assured us they would not run out of anything and then they ran out of red wine before dinner was even over. Although Barber park is beautiful I would recommend not getting married there until they change the bar option that they use or if you plan on not having alcohol at your event.

This venue was perfect for my not-too-serious wedding. I was looking for a place that was beautiful without being stuffy and that also showcased Idaho's best assets. This was such an ideal location. The staff never left me hanging for anything and I really enjoyed working with them. I would highly recommend this location for anyone who wants to keep things simple yet fabulous!

Not very flexible and tons of restrictions. Candy was amazing to work with and was very nice and helpful. Chris was nice and helpful to me, the bride, but then I heard that after I had left he was extremely rude to my family and guests. It was a gorgeous facility but there were so many restrictions that it took away from the fun of the reception and from planning. We weren't able to have a rehearsal for the ceremony because they wouldn't let us schedule ahead of time for the night before, and then a week before the wedding let us know that they booked another wedding the night before so there was no chance of rehearsing at the ceremony site, and after I sent in my floor-plan (They required me to have), they said they would set up but then only did half.

Beautiful facility. Great price compared to other venues in the area. They have rather strict vendor insurance requirements but once they are approved and on their list it is great.

We loved having our wedding at this beautiful venue. We originally planned on having the ceremony outside and the reception inside but it ended up raining on our wedding day. We were able to pull everything inside and it worked out perfectly! We had ~150 people at our wedding and it did not feel cramped or squished at all. Would definitely recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for someplace beautiful but also versitile.

The center is gorgeous, new, and easy to decorate.
The staff are friendly, professional, and responsive.
The center is run by the county which means more restrictions than a private event center. You have to use their alcohol vendor and there are additional restrictions for all other vendors (namely they have to have their insurance checked and be a registered vendor). Also, if you want sparklers you have to get a permit from the county. Finally you have to be done by 9:00 and out by 10:00.
It's super adorable though, and the rental includes tables and chairs (awesome!) also they have you make a layout so they will set up the tables and chairs for you!
So absent the vendor restrictions, this is really a great venue. And it's a wonderful setting for pictures!!!

I was concerned about early negative reviews but clearly things have changed. I found Candy and the event center very helpful and responsive. As we had alcohol there was a security guard but she was very non intrusive and invisible. Chris was on hand to assist w/sound setup and microphones
We were married in front of the beautiful stone fireplace on a chilly October morning The grounds & flowers provided a lovely backdrop for our photos. I would definitely recommend this venue.

From the very first time I emailed Candy, the event coordinator at Barber Park, through our actual wedding day, she was incredibly responsive and timely with getting me answers to my many questions. The event center itself is gorgeous, in a lush riverside setting, and is beautifully maintained. I love that it's so secluded and private - very few of our guests even knew it existed prior to our wedding, and all of them commented on how lovely it was. The only downside to this otherwise perfect place is the limitations due to being operated by the county parks system- closing at 9pm (so early!), and having quite a few restrictions on things that weren't allowed, such as sparklers, etc. Those were fairly easy to navigate around, though, and we found that it was more than worth forgoing a sparkler-exit in order to have such a beautiful setting for our wedding. As a bonus, the cost is reasonable and even includes table/chair setup - however, ONLY inside the building. We must have missed that part of the contract and were scrambling last minute to get the chairs setup outside for our ceremony. All in all, we had a perfect day and would highly recommend!

This was a beautiful venue for our wedding. I couldn't have asked for a better atmosphere for the wedding I was envisioning. The service was wonderful and they set up all the tables for us so we only needed to decorate it on the day. The downside was not having access to the venue to set up the night before, and the process of designing the layout was a little confusing. All in all a wonderful place to get married.
