Hausbarn, Manager at Hausbarn, responded to this review

There is no excuse for rudeness ever and we apologize for that. Communication is the key to a successful event for all parties. There have been 110 weddings in the Park in the last five years, many of them outside.

Even though we had to do all the set up and clean up, this was a magnificent place to have a summer wedding. The staff (made up of mostly volunteers) was very accommodating!
