We're thrilled to announce the winners of our Love Gone Viral Giveaway, Ivy and Tom! Can't wait to see these two get married here in March. Read their story below!

We are so excited to announce our winners!!

Congratulations to Ivy and Tom!! This sweet duo has been on the frontlines of the Covid-19 pandemic since the beginning, as they are both resident physicians here in D.C.

They met and fell in love in D.C. before moving together to Maine for medical school. There they had 4 years of studying, clinicals, and board exams while supporting each other through the rigors of becoming doctors. In 2018 they came back here to where their love story began! They were both accepted to their top choice residency programs, Tom as an OB/GYN resident at Georgetown/Medstar Washington Hospital Center and Ivy as an anesthesia resident at Georgetown University Hospital. As resident physicians, they have been on the frontlines since the Covid-19 outbreak at the beginning of the year. They have had to deal with the added stress and mental/emotional weight at work. Due to "Covid schedules" they have sometimes spent weeks apart during the pandemic so that they could be where they were most needed. They selflessly shifted their focus from wedding planning to hospital planning. As an anesthesia resident, Ivy works with the hospital's sickest patients on a daily basis. She is in a specialty that puts her at greatest risk, given her knowledge in respiratory physiology and airway management. Meanwhile, Tom (as an OB/GYN resident) has worked tirelessly to help women navigate this difficult time. From expecting mothers who have had to completely change their delivery plans to women with ovarian cancer waiting for their surgeries, and so much more! Ivy and Tom put their wedding dreams on the back burner in order to prioritize their patients and the safety of others.

We are so proud to gift this deserving couple their dream wedding!

Fun fact about Ivy and Tom: For the proposal Tom (with the help of some very sweet friends and family) created an extensive scavenger hunt that spanned 14 stops and 23 miles of surprises and adventures across D.C., before getting down on one knee at the very end!

Thank you so much to all the amazing couples that shared their love stories with our team. Each and every one of you is truly amazing. 💕

Y'all! Christie and Aaron are quite possibly two of the sweetest people to walk this earth. And last Friday, they FINALLY got to celebrate their marriage with their loved ones! Somehow even though they had an intimate ceremony on their original wedding date (May 2nd), their ceremony with treasured friends and family on August 7th was JUST as precious – the smiles and laughter never stopped for a moment! It is so clear these two are dearly loved by all, and it's no wonder why with the beautiful hearts they have for each other and the Lord. What an immense blessing it has been to walk through this special part of their love story with them!

From the most adorable first look moment to GANDALF(!) making a special appearance on the dance floor, the entire day was full of so much joy. We really couldn't have asked for a more perfect, rain-free day! I am so excited to share this little sneak peek into their wedding with you. Enjoy!!

Many thanks to their spectacular vendor team:

We have our first wedding reception tonight since re-opening! We're making sure tables are spaced apart, touch points are sanitized every hour, and hand sanitizer abounds - but we look around every now and again to take in all the happiness around us. Congratulations on your wedding, Amy and Robert! You've been through so much while planning, but we hope Sweeney Barn delivered the beautiful wedding you always hoped for, and that you absolutely deserve. ❤️

Our Story

Sweeney Barn began its history circa 1939 as a one-story dairy barn with a hayloft. Owned by the Birkett family, the barn originally housed cows waiting to be milked as Prince William County’s dairy industry boomed in the early 20th century.

Newly restored as a weddings and events venue, the barn’s rich history and rustic setting will create the perfect experience for you and your special guests. Stunning original architecture meets modern design and technology to give your event a unique elegance captured only at Sweeney Barn.

Owners Alannah and Noel Sweeney are avid barn lovers and have a personal passion for bringing old properties back to life. They fell in love with the Birkett family barn since the first time they saw it and the surrounding property. They have done their very best to maintain the look and feel of the new barn by incorporating and reusing as much of the old material from the barn as possible during the renovation. We sincerely hope that you enjoy the barn and the surrounding property, and our hope is that you get to share this memory on your special day and bring the feel of the barn and older times with you. Noel and Alannah live in Clifton, VA with their 3 kids, Johnny, Maeve and Conor.
