This venue is BEAUTIFUL. I feel so fortunate to have had my wedding at the Dana Powers House. I used the garden area by the house for my ceremony and cocktail hour and then the reception was in the barn. The entire space is gorgeous and I loved that our guests transitioned from this outdoor garden to the chandelier lit barn. It was like being in two totally different spaces for one wedding. Judi is the owner and she is truly wonderful, such a sweet lady who is passionate about weddings. She has so many pieces through her company embellish rentals that can provide any feel or look. She was very accommodating to last minute add ons as well. She threw together a cigar and whiskey bar for our wedding no problem. I had guests compliment the beauty of the venue and they said it was stunning and magical. Judi pays close attention to detail and takes great pride in her home. The weather cooled off the week before my wedding and she was prepared and contacted me about having heaters just in case. She knows the property and knows what will ensure the comfort of the guests which is great, it made the whole process very relaxing. It was a perfect day and I couldn't have asked for anything more, its a great venue and I would love to find an excuse to have another event there someday! :)

I cannot say enough good things about Judi Powers and Dana Powers House. My experience with them was seamless and easy from start to finish and our wedding day was perfection. If anything went wrong, we certainly did not know it. Judi was our day of planner and she made sure we were taken care of at every moment. She and her assistant Sheila were responsive and flexible with us throughout the planning process. Both amazing women to work with. I can't even begin to express how beautiful our wedding was. If you are looking for a rustic, but elegant venue, it cannot be beat. It is a truly magical place and everyone could not believe how amazing the venue was. We kept hearing over and over it was the best wedding they had ever been to. We would not have changed one moment of our day. Thank you Dana Powers House! It was unforgettable.

Do you want to have a venue that people will provide a beautiful backdrop for your wedding? There is no better place than the Dana Powers House. My wife and I constantly had people telling us that they loved the house and the barn. It was simply amazing and I highly recommend that you have Judy be your day of coordinator. It isn't that much extra and you can immediately remove all the stress of coordinating your vendors. She did a great job at making sure we enjoyed ourselves and we even got to eat our dinner! Thank you Judy and everyone at Dana Powers for our perfect day!

With planning a wedding in such a short amount of time, working with Judi and Sheila at the Dana Powers House was a dream! We had a 6 month engagement and planned our wedding from out of state, which makes all wedding processes a little more work and a lot of stress. Judi and Sheila answered all of my questions in a timely manner and made the process so smooth with coordinating all aspects of our wedding.

To top of the amazing service, the venue is absolutely beautiful! It ended up raining on our wedding day (which at first was my nightmare) but Judi reassured me that everything was still going to be perfect and my ceremony moved inside the barn. It was beyond perfect. We had our ceremony and reception in the barn, with the cocktail hour being outside as soon as it cleared up.

My recommendation for anyone considering this venue-book it! It's worth the money. I also recommend using Judi as the day of coordinator. She made my day absolutely stress free and a dream. Thank you Judi and Sheila!

WOW - what can I say that will adequately explain how AMAZING our wedding day was at the Dana-Powers Barn?!?! There just aren't words!

Judi & Sheila were quick to respond to my endless questions & requests, and accommodated everything I wanted. I hired Judi as our Day Of Coordinator and can't imagine trying to make the day run without her expertise and help. I'm not one to let others plan for me - I am very particular and do not let go easily. Judi calmed ALL of my nerves & concerns - she is amazing that way. She knows what she is doing and I'm sure has seen it all. She stayed so calm throughout the entire process and had so many suggestions about how to make each particular thing exactly how I wanted it.

Our rehearsal was on Halloween and Judi was a great sport when we all showed up in our costumes. She kept things moving and got us out quick. I knew the wedding would be perfect with her on my side.

The night before & the morning of POURED rain. When we showed up on Saturday, there was an issue with the parking lot; Judi already had it all figured out, was on to Plan B, and was calm throughout the whole thing. Although I showed up a half hour later than planned, we still started the wedding on time. If it weren't for Judi, we probably wouldnt have even realized we needed to cut the cake, do our first dance, do speeches, etc - the day flew by and before I knew it it was over. Thankfully Judi kept us on track!

The barn itself is so beautiful inside and out. The property is expertly cared for. I gave 4.5 stars for flexibility because there are some rules that must be followed, but honestly nothing that bothered me. I wouldn't have had time for any extras anyways!

I hope one of my friends gets married at the Dana Powers property just so I have a reason to go back. You will NOT be disappointed having your special day here. I could go on and on. Thank you Judi!

My husband and I fell in love with The Dana Powers House immediately, the venue fit both our personality and budget. Many little things that you would have to rent in other places are already provided by Judy. For example, chairs, tables, and restrooms believe it or not (some places require you bring in restrooms). Judy was very responsive and professional throughout the planning of our wedding. We felt very comfortable with her since day one, which made everything fall right into place, especially because she was our day of coordinator. Our wedding day was perfect, Judy and her staff worked really hard to ensure we had nothing to worry about. We received compliments from all of our guests, Dana Powers House is truly a magical place thanks to Judy and her passion for weddings and event planning.

My husband and I got married at the barn at Dana Powers House a couple weeks ago. Can we go back and do it again? It was amazing. You dont need me to tell you how beautiful everything is because clearly from the pictures it is the most beautiful place to get married. Judi was so nice and helpful. She answered my million questions. She has the most amazing selection of rentals and everything was so beautifully set up and taken care of when we arrived. She is totally on top of everything. And day of, she was a wedding ninja. She was never seen until the exact moment you happened to be taking off your veil or doing something with your shoes or bustle and then she was right there ready to handle it. She was amazing and has so much experience. Thank you so much for everything Judi! Our day was beautiful and we couldnt have asked for anything more!!

Judi Powers is an amazing person. She created a space that captured everything I could have dreamed of for my wedding day. She is elegant, calm, collected, organized, and so inviting. Her venue is something every little girl dreams of. I feel so lucky to have found the barn along with Judi and her family.

This past year, my husband Marcus and I got married at Dana-Powers House. We had our ceremony outside on the lawn near the barn and our reception inside the barn. I was planning our wedding long distance from New York City and the owner of the venue, Judi Powers was very responsive throughout all the months leading up to the wedding, especially 1-2 months beforehand. When our wedding day arrived, everything was more amazing and breathtaking than we could have ever imagined! The venue itself is stunning, yet makes a wonderful canvas for your own personal tastes and embellishments. Judi even has rentals for you to decorate with, which made things all the easier to plan. On the day of, our guests could not stop GUSHING about how beautiful, charming, fun and wonderful it all was. Guests felt it was such a special and unique venue. We hired Judi as our day-of coordinator and she was great at taking care of all the small details behind the scenes. She made sure the guests were taken care of while the wedding party was too busy taking photos, etc. She brought parasols out to shade our guests while they waited in the sun for the ceremony to begin — without us asking her to. Judi has a tireless zest for details and lovingly makes sure that your wedding will go smoothly. The only reason why "Flexibility" has 3 stars is because there are venue rules which prohibited us from serving hard alcohol for more than 1 hour and because I really wanted us to be sent off with sparklers or sky lanterns, but neither were allowed (understandably) for fire hazard reasons. Our wedding day, however, was true PERFECTION and overshadowed any of these restrictions by a mile. My groom and I had an amazing time and we wouldn't have done it any differently. Cheers! -Celeste
