Steeped in history and evoking the simplicity of a place that time has forgotten, the classic barn has been a subject irresistible to artists, poets, and city folk alike for its stoic visage and endearing presence.

Inherent in the choice to have a barn wedding offers a great idea of flexibility and ample room for imagination. Your ceremony and reception can use the barn as a backdrop for a lovely day in the fresh country air. It can serve as the perfect canvas for an indoor reception, dappled by twinkling lights hung from the rafters and the glow of candles from tables full of loved ones. A barn works equally well as a backup for inclement weather or as the centerpiece of a wedding’s design.

A barn is a magical place for a wedding. Steeped in history and evoking the simplicity of a place that time has forgotten, the classic American barn has been a subject irresistible to artists, poets, and city folk alike for its stoic visage and endearing presence. Hosting a rustic barn wedding not only allows the betrothed couple the space to gather amongst their nearest and dearest together under one roof, but the pure, utilitarian framework is the basis for a fully customizable wedding aesthetic. Whether a simple celebration of the good life in the countryside or an elegant, sophisticated affair, a barn is the perfect backdrop for a singularly gorgeous wedding day.

    What comes to mind when you hear barn wedding? Cows, dirt, pape

    What comes to mind when you hear barn wedding? Cows, dirt, paper plates and hay. If you answered yes to anyone of those choices, you need to read this book. The author shows how to have a eco-friendly, classy, and budget friendly wedding using a barn to make a beautiful backdrop. The pictures are beautiful and after you see them a barn wedding just may be on the top of your list. The use of house hold items, such as Ball brand canning jars as lights and vases is both classy and casual. I especially love the fiesta barn wedding. Done two ways, the author showcases a traditional colorful Mexican style barn wedding and a more muted white wedding with Spanish flare. I feel this book should be seen by all future brides and would even recommend this book to people that enjoy wedding photography. A great engagement gift!!
