An Interview with Stephanie DeCaprio,
Wedding Coordinator of the Preston Barn
What are some menu items you highly recommend?
Answer: Everything is pretty amazing honestly. Guest always RAVE about the food… but the short ribs with crispy and camelized onions is a favorite amongst myself, our staff and couples. Everybody really loves our citrus salmon too. The Mac & Cheese tartlet is a popular HD, along with the pulled pork spring rolls, mini crab cakes, and rare beef sirloin toast. One of my faves, especially for summer weddings, is the goat cheese and apricot tartlet. It had me skeptical at first but they made me a believer. It’s unique and delicious.

Tell me about some add-ons couples can choose from to personalize their wedding.
Answer: Signature cocktails
Self serve beer/wine/signature cocktail stations
We love when couples personalize the space with drapings, extra lighting, vintage furniture… anything to makes the space truly theirs.
What does your pricing start at and what would you say is the average a bride spends on their wedding when hosting at your venue?
Answer: Our average wedding usually starts around $40,000. Which includes the property for the entire weekend, the Inn and rooms, catering and open bar.
Is there anything else you would like to share with us?
Answer: Actually the restaurant in the Inn is open on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights for anyone who wants to stop in and try some food. It could even be a nice little overnight getaway. Come for dinner, spend the night and take a tour of our event space with me.
We’d like to thank Stephanie and the team at the Old Drover’s Inn for their hospitality and having us for dinner in the restaurant after our interview. The food is amazing. We highly recommend you plan a trip for dinner! You can learn more about the restaurant and check out their hours here…Old Drover’s Inn Restaurant
