Do you feel like your wedding will be just like all the others at that same venue?

Not to fear! I promise your vision is unique and so distinct to your personality that the same barn will feel like a whole new world. We have visited the same venues year after year and yet each wedding is so new and exciting! It gives us great joy to assist in making that vision that has been dreamt of for months, (or years even!) come to fruition.

Below are 4 WAYS to turn the same old barn venue into your very own magical masterpiece!

So no worries, you can take full advantage of your beauty rest, check another thing off your list, and KNOW that your venue will be spectacular and special to you and your family.

Things to think about when creating your magical masterpiece:

1. Use extra decor material around your barn to tie everything together

There was extra garland left over so instead of wasting it, we put it to good use! We lined the curtains and placed it on tables to complete the greenery look and give the venue more texture and dimension.

2. COLOR ! !

Color can change the aesthetic of an entire event. Choose a color that stands out to you and best represents your personality!

The gold table runner added just enough color for a great contrast against the clean, crisp look of these white linens.

3. Lighting 

Strung with care, these lights were complimented with a garland that changed the ordinary to extraordinary! Using the garland not only gave the ceiling another color, but it gave length to the barn giving it the illusion that it is more spacious, yet still romantic.

4. Make a S T A T E M E N T

Lastly, you want something that stands out upon first arrival. Whether that be a big sign, a picture, decor lining a walkway or something else! Make sure it represents you as a couple and I promise your guests are going to love it!
