WEDDING TESTIMONIALS

To say that Rock Barn went above and beyond our expectations is an understatement! My husband and I recently stayed at the lodging offered by Rock for the week of our wedding and it was fabulous! Such a lovely place to call "home" when you are out of town. Teresa was able to accommodate all of our requests, no matter how many we had. The staff did such an amazing job for our rehearsal dinner and the wedding ceremony and reception. Eric and I were so surprised and delighted to see that after our first dance our food was already plated and ready for us at the sweetheart table. From that point on Brenda took care of anything we needed and did it with a smile! Flame was such a help to us since we were planning the wedding from out of state. Anytime we had a question or concern she made sure to get back to us in a quick manner and exceeded our expectations for sure! For anyone looking for a venue in Hickory for wedding or any special event I would highly recommend Rock Barn with zero hesitations! - April & Eric,  August 7th, 2015


“Beautiful venue for a wedding.
  Helpful staff went above and beyond, especially the events director.  We received lots of compliments on the delicious food that was served at our reception.  It was definitely the best day of our lives.” –Amanda & Clint, June 13, 2015

“Flame Deal and all the employees at Rock Barn were amazing. If you are even considering having your wedding here, you are making the right choice. The food was delicious, the reception was set up wonderfully, and the event coordinator, Flame Deal was there for it all! She has a heart of gold and bent over backwards to make sure we were happy and satisfied. In the 3 months I had to play this wedding, she helped me through step by step. My family and guests had nothing but compliments on how beautiful the decorations were, how wonderful the food was, and how smoothly the reception and ceremony went. She and the team at Rock Barn made my special day truly spectacular. Thank you!”- Sarah & David, April 3rd, 2015

“Thank you for you expertise and planning to create the wedding of the decade! I had guests and family from all over the world- Japan, Hawaii, London, San Diego, Manhattan, Virginia, Georgia, and they all raved about the wedding reception. The food was amazing and delicious, the wait staff were all professional, and the venue was gorgeous- some of the adjectives that described the event included, fabulous, amazing, incredible, wonderful, beautiful, so much fun, wedding of the century!! No one wanted to leave and people are still emailing me to let me know what a marvelous time they had…Thanks so much for your professionalism, your calmness, when I was having nightmares and freaking out! I could not have done it without you! A lot of my friends are telling me that Rock Barn is the venue to choose for the best wedding reception ever!! Thanks for making it a success!!”

“I had my wedding reception at Rock Barn. The Events Coordinator did my day of coordination. She kept everything going. She made sure I cut the cake and tossed the bouquet before it got too late. She was always willing to accept phone calls and texts. The food was wonderful. The staff made sure everything is exactly how I wanted it to be. My guests are still talking about how delicious everything was. The chilled peach-champagne soup shooters are a must!” Kayley & Tim, May 16th, 2015

“Thank you so much for meeting with me today and bearing with me. You have definitely reassured me that you and your team will have everything under control. Thanks so much for just being there and being there and being willing to make my daughter’s wedding day go smoothly for me and of course for her too! I can now relax knowing that I don’t have to do it all-aah! Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

“I got married at Rock Barn Golf and Spa on July 19th, 2014 and I don’t think we could have picked a more beautiful venue for our ceremony and reception. All of our family and friends were stunned by how beautiful it was with our ceremony overlooking the golf course and reception inside in the elegant ballroom. Most say it was the prettiest wedding they had ever been too! The staff were so easy to work with and willing to do whatever we asked to make our day perfect! I also appreciated the vendors they recommended who were excellent! They had all worked together in the past and knew each other’s work and style so it went so smoothly. I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Another thing all of our guests couldn’t stop talking about was the food! We had filet mignon and herb chicken with whipped potatoes and veggies. It was absolutely delicious and cooked just right! The staff also waited until my husband and I were seated before serving dinner to make sure we could eat, and that was awesome because I didn’t expect to have a chance to eat! It works out perfectly for an out of town wedding because they offer very nice places to stay right there on site! I highly recommend this venue to any other bride and groom, you will not be disappointed!!” -Sarah & Josh, July 19th, 2014

“Doug and I don't have sufficient words to express how grateful we are to you and all of the staff at Rock Barn for making our wedding celebration unforgettable.  Your assistance in choice of our wedding reception menu and accommodating over 40 people on our Friday night rehearsal at the buffet went above and beyond.  Our extended families, who joined us from out of state, were very impressed by the beautiful surroundings, the buffet meal and superior service. I have not forgotten about the wedding day as it was a fairy tail that had been dreamt of and was reality.  The service was beautifully held under the tent due to the rainy weather and all of the guests were transported into our fairy tail day.  I am still getting people tell me that the wedding and reception was the best that they had attended.  The food prepared by the chef was succulent, the prompt service of the meals, and the attentiveness of the staff met and surpassed Doug's request.  Brenda and all those attending to our party that day should be commended highly. In short our day was perfect thanks to everyone there and we are thankful that we chose Rock Barn” Sylvia & Doug, August 2nd, 2014

“I first want to thank you for all you did to make Lauren and Gary’s wedding reception perfect. You certainly met all our expectations and went beyond you were more than a help and asset from the beginning to the end. I actually enjoyed my daughter’s wedding, because I know that you were seeing to every detail. As long as you are at Rock Barn, I will never hesitate to have another affair there”  
Serafina  (Mother of Bride) Lauren & Gary, October 4 2014

“I had my ceremony and reception at Rock Barn and I am so happy that I did. Everyone there was helpful and professional and the food was delicious. The price we saw was the price we paid, there were no hidden surcharges or added fees. Everything ran very smoothly and they were easily able to accommodate the 200 people in attendance. It was clear that they are professionals at hosting large events; everything the day of was exactly how we discussed in the planning meetings. Thanks Rock Barn for a beautiful night!” -Meredith & Hal, March 29th, 2014

“They were wonderful in helping with last minute preparations! I would have my wedding there again! Very elegant and beautiful!”
–Teresa & Cecil, April 4th, 2014

“We were very impressed with the staff and how professional and attentive they were to our every need. We thought we had thought of everything in preparing for the wedding but, when something unexpected came up in the planning, they had already anticipated it and solved it before it happened. Our daughter wanted an “outdoor winter wonderland wedding” in February. Rock Barn Golf and Spa provided a perfect venue in that they put up their huge outside tents so our florist could decorate it accordingly. Rock Barn Golf and Spa provided everything else – chairs, heaters, stage, table and covers for the unity candle, etc and, it snowed on their wedding day! Perfect”- Mandy & Brian, February16th, 2013
