Now more than ever, millennials are passing on traditional wedding venues for a space they can customize and make their own. This shift away from traditional venues has led to an increase in rustic barn weddings and we are absolutely loving it!
Whether you’re a country couple or just love the idea of a night spent under twinkly lights, a barn wedding is perfect for you and your loved one. From exposed beams, chalkboard signs, and mason jars to hay barrel rides, apple picking and farm animals, these venues are the perfect space to tell your unique love story.
While the increase in popularity of these venues certainly gives you more options to choose from, this can also make narrowing down your perfect venue much harder. That’s why we have compiled a list of 5 of our favorite barn venues to help make planning the wedding of your dreams just a little easier!
