About Us Barrington’s White House is an elegant, historic mansion that is perfectly suited to our current times, where smaller, more intimate weddings are becoming more common. Located in the heart of downtown Barrington, this 1898 home belonged to local philanthropists John and Julia Robertson at the turn of the century. It was meticulously restored in 2015 to capture the timeless beauty of the home while providing every modern amenity. We can accommodate both intimate weddings of 50 or less and larger weddings up to 130 (150 for ceremony only).

Elegant. Intimate. Extraordinary.

Imprinted on Your Memory Forever

“Imprinted on Your Memory Forever”

Getting married in the time of COVID was an adventure! From the moment we toured The White House, we knew this was the place we wanted to get married. Our 100 person wedding was perfect for the elegant ballroom and having the downstairs and front porch of the mansion accessible to our guests gave us the room to breathe and the intimacy we craved for our event.
Flexible and Reliable Staff

“Flexible and Reliable Staff”

During the many changes prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the White House was supportive and flexible, and they provided us with the latest information about public health guidelines. Despite all the changes in the few months before the wedding, we were able to have a meaningful celebration that matched our original vision for the wedding.

Barrington’s White House is such a beautiful, nontraditional venue. I love the idea of having multiple, interesting spaces for guest to enjoy. I was looking for something different from your usual hotel ballroom and this was perfect! My bridesmaids and I had our hair and makeup done in the beautiful bridal suite, and it was so fun getting to spend time there together before the ceremony began. So many great spots with natural light for photography.”

This historic mansion was the “absolutely perfect” backdrop to our memorable day. I especially loved the second-floor bridal suite – it was a lovely place for us to have our hair and makeup done, get dressed, and sip champagne! Guests asked me who we used as a wedding planner, and I said ‘no one’ – the White House staff and vendors helped do the planning with us!
