Julia and Geoffry grabbed our hearts in so many ways. From our first conversation they exuded kindest and trust in the guidance we provided. Their love for each other was so apparent as they worked together to make lots of decisions. Wedding day was pure bliss for them, for their families, and for us too!

How gorgeous is this photo?? We love designing beautiful sweetheart tables and head tables for our couples. This showstopping sweetheart table was created by repurposing the ceremony arch and flower arrangements from the ceremony aisle.

We all waited so long for this joyful moment when Tamara and Jon would get to have the celebration they dreamed of and planned for. Tamara and Jon had planned to marry in May of 2020. By the time Covid sent us into lock down, the wedding was completely planned. Guests had been assigned to tables, floor plans, timelines, and all the little details were accounted for. After the initial shock we set a new date for August of 2020 thinking surely this Covid thing would be done and over. As June rolled around, we realized August was not going to work out and we moved the wedding to May of 2021. While they waited, they got married and bought a house. As early 2022 came into focus and the governor of Virginia was not allowing weddings of more than 50 guests, we moved the wedding to August of 2021. The fourth time was the charm! The celebration was EXTRA special because they often wondered if it would ever happen, and it gave them the perfect opportunity to share the news that their family was growing with all the people who mattered most in their lives! So much joy and happiness for these two who held on to their dream.

The DC area is a treasure trove of unique and beautiful tabletop options to bring wedding day visions to life. The gorgeous coral plates from @somethingvintage perfectly matched our color palette and became the centerpiece of our table design.

We love creating clever ways for guests to find their seats. When Jon and Tamara told us they loved to garden and wanted a garden themed wedding we collaborated with the ever talented @kpcandcophoto to create this fun seating chart/favor wall.

SO excited to share Marissa & Boris' es**rt display! They share a love of letter writing, so Lisa at L. Havard Events came up with the idea of a giant letter for their es**rt display, with teeny envelopes addressed to each guest! 😍 How it's made: 1. Do a whole lotta math & decide on the right envelope size 2. Learn tiny envelopes don't exist in the wedding colors 3. Find the world's only supplier of terracotta paper(?!) 4. Make envelopes by hand 5. Address envelopes in calligraphy 6. Design & print insert card for each envelope with a special note from the happy couple 7. The vintage stamps I order don't arrive. Design a custom stamp, print & glue (kismet! these complete the look) 8. Painstakingly paint headers with a brush (paint pens don't come in terracotta) 9. Original backer board rental falls through. Discover the weight capacity of copper pipe, have a small but serious heart attack, switch to this backer panel 😅 10. Attach the envelopes so each guest can take theirs off the wall (forget to check your math and end up having to scooch half of them over one spot) 11. Wrap for transport, load into Lisa's SUV & collapse! Photos: KPC and Co. Photography and Design Planner: L.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world and the wedding industry in 2020, Sweeney Barn teamed up with some truly incredible professionals to donate a wedding to one deserving couple. We couldn't be more happy for Tom and Ivy, who were *finally* married at our venue on September 23, 2021. Both in the healthcare industry, they didn't have the time to plan a wedding due to all the extra shifts they were pulling throughout the pandemic. We are so appreciative of everything they've done for their patients, and honored to be part of this gift to them. We invite you to watch their wedding trailer, which shows not only their incredible love for each other, but also the extreme talent of industry professionals local to our area. Congratulations, Tom and Ivy - it was wonderful to see you tie the knot at Sweeney Barn! Videography | Andrew Schear Films Planning | L.

Warm, sunny Virginia in the FALL! Alice + Clyde's vineyard wedding was full of sun, laughter, and tears of joy... as well as some of the best hand-written vows. Happy marriage, gorgeous humans!

Congratulations to Tamara and Jon! They were finally able to celebrate their wedding on Sunday (after rescheduling three times!), and it was so wonderful to see them surrounded by their dearest family and friends.

Sweeney Barn is excited to host the Second Annual The Wedding Yard Sale on Sunday, November 15, 2020! The Wedding Yard Sale is a platform for newlyweds to sell their gently used wedding items to recoup their costs and find a good home for their items. The sale also creates an opportunity for engaged couples to purchase wedding items at a fraction of the cost. Northern Virginia based Wedding Planners Lisa Havard of L. Havard Events and Natalie Seng of Designed Perfectly Events dreamed up this idea in 2018 after observing their engaged couples purchase items for their wedding and then wonder what to do with those items after the wedding. The event is also for wedding vendors (Florists, Photographers, Wedding Planners, Stylists, etc.) looking to add or subtract items from their inventories. Visit https://theweddingyardsale.ticketleap.com/the-wedding-yardsale-2020/details for more information and to purchase your tickets today!

friday’s wedding was the kind of day that had me tearin’ up constantly. you could tell this was a long awaited day, but the pain of having to postpone their original plan to get married in april seemed long forgotten, as the joy of the day took center stage. the day was so full of heart and love and my only goal was to capture it in a way that they will still *feel* how wonderful the day felt when they look back in 50 years ❤️ vendor team ⚡️ Planning & Design: L.

Hi already-married past couples, and couples getting ready for your weddings! One of my favorite planners, L. Havard Events, is hosting her second annual Wedding Yard Sale! Couples collect and purchase items to style your weddings... but what to do with all the stuff you've purchased after the wedding? Send it onto its next home and life at the Wedding Yard Sale... or pick up gently-loved items for your upcoming wedding, and be a bit gentler on the planet than buying new. The Yard Sale is on Sunday, March 29th at Sweeney Barn in Manassas from 2pm to 4pm. More details: https://theweddingyardsale.ticketleap.com/
