The Monarch Veil.
Not Just a Venue... Your Wedding Destination.
We opened the Monarch Veil with the intention of bringing a new choice for a wedding & event venue to the greater Pittsburgh area. But our goal is to make your wedding or event an effortlessly perfect one; and to be a place where you and your friends and family can create memories.
Situated on 5+ acres of beautiful countryside off the beaten path in Buffalo Township, (Sarver, PA) this stunning wedding & event estate features 3 different venues to choose from for your event! All spaces are climate controlled and renovated while staying true to the rustic locale & theme. For decades, the property was a very popular restaurant, first called Jardine's and then named the J-Barn Country Inn. A place where family & community could celebrate life's milestones. While the restaurant closed it's doors several years ago, we saw the opportunity to bring the spirit of it back with a new purpose. We want this beautiful facility to live on in the community as we celebrate more of life's milestones with you!
We have 3 buildings to choose from to host your Wedding, Corporate Event, Baby Shower, Birthday Party, or any special event!
1) Picturesque in rustic simplicity
2) Planning for the future with imagination and wisdom
This ballroom is everything you could want! Idyllically rustic with artistic and modern touches, this spacious and gorgeous ballroom holds up to 250 people and is perfect for weddings and large events.
The name was inspired by the huge original fireplace at the room's focal point.
With an industrial-farmhouse vibe, the barn-wood and stone interior gives this space it's charm and beauty. Ideal for events seating 120 people or less and also gorgeously aesthetic for indoor ceremonies.
Cardinals represent friendship, love and devotion.
A wonderfully endearing cottage venue that is a great fit for smaller events such as baby or wedding showers and birthday parties, but also suitable for wedding ceremonies or any kind of event with a suitable guest count.

Photos: Where we started...
These pictures are documenting the conditions of the property at the time that we purchased it and the renovation journey.
The Monarch Veil property was formerly a restaurant for 50 years! First named Jardine's and then later named J-Barn Country Inn, both were extremely popular and well-loved in the community and beyond. Circumstances forced them to close and the buildings had been shuttered for 3 years when we made our offer in the Fall of 2020. We closed on the property on March 18, 2021 and started making our renovations shortly after!
~ Hearthstone Hall was the restaurant.
~ Cardinal House was a gift shop.
~ The Arcadian was first a duck barn and then a storage facility for vehicles.
