Meet Barrington’s White House Hospitality Manager, Jennifer Salvatore

Barrington's White House Private Events

Meet Jennifer Salvatore, who brings her years of experience in planning and managing weddings and events to the #1 historically elegant wedding and event venue in Barrington, Illinois. In today’s ever changing world, whether planning a wedding, a welcoming party, or a shower, your Hospitality Manager plays a critical role. Responding to your specific requests, as well as innovating and handling problems, is more important than ever.

In her own words, Jennifer tells us how she sees her role in helping you to have an experience-of-a-lifetime at Barrington’s White House.

“The planning process for each event, whether it be a bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, or wedding is unique and distinctive because clients really love to personalize the mansion for their special day. I genuinely try to take more of a consultative approach with our couples providing them with guidance every step of the way. I often work with their photographers and florists who come in prior to the event to plan and prepare for their big day. I enjoy being involved every step of the way. 

A large percentage of our weddings host both the ceremony and reception. Couples really appreciate the uniqueness of Barrington’s White House because we offer an intimate setting and the thought of having their own private mansion for their day makes their wedding very unique.

Barrington’s White House is popular for all wedding related events such as bridal showers, rehearsal dinners and welcome receptions along with combined ceremonies and receptions. We are finding that more and more brides are wanting to do their ceremony and reception at the same venue, and I love making that happen.  We’re also seeing the trend of rehearsal dinners being private and then opening up to a welcome reception for more guests who have come into town. We host events for 30 guests on up to 130.

One of the most important features of Barrington’s White House that I love to incorporate is our Bridal Suite. Brides immediately envision themselves getting ready with their bridal party in this generous area which features the modern convenience of our stying bar for hair and makeup with access to 3 large and luxurious private bathrooms. Our bridal suite has also been used for a lot of photo shoots because of its décor and size. Brides often rent the suite for additional hours prior to their ceremony time.

Brides and their families have described Barrington’s White House as charming, intimate, elegant and distinctly unique which they feel is reflected in their wedding photos, which I love seeing when everything is over, to remind us all of how perfectly beautiful it all was.”
