"Having ITD's 20th anniversary dinner at the Red Barn was wonderful. From the beginning to the end, all the details were taken care of with the utmost of professionalism. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Simply perfect, rustic elegance for an important celebration.

"The Red Barn was an excellent spot for my wedding. Both the barn and the surrounding grounds were beautiful. It was nice to have so much control on decorations and the barn dresses up beautifully. Working with the coordinator was such a big help. The coordinator made the whole wedding run smoothly. Sodexho Catering provided wonderful fresh food and did a great job. The food was great!"
