Wedding Barns and Event Venues

Barn reception venues have seen a continuous rise in popularity over the years, and so far that trend has showed no signs of slowing. Wedding barns provide a rustically elegant setting with a timeless aesthetic, making them perfect for both ceremonies and receptions. As more brides and grooms to be opt for stunning outdoor properties over traditional churches for their special days, investing in a wedding barn is becoming a more attractive business opportunity. From weddings to graduation ceremonies to family reunions and more, there’s no shortage of potential clients looking for an event barn to enjoy with family and friends.

Barns may be associated with cowboys, livestock and muddy boots, but the look and feel of a classic barn is easily dressed up or down to meet the wedding party’s vision. Custom, all-wood wedding and event barns designed with an unfailing commitment to longevity of the structure and quality of the craftsmanship are smart investments in the long run—particularly when they are used for other events in addition to weddings. Perhaps most importantly, a well-constructed wedding and event barn venue will leave a lasting impression on the betrothed and their beloved guests.

Wedding Barns Built to Last

Barn reception venues designed and constructed using reliable post-and-beam construction methods are built for the long haul. Sometimes referred to as timber-frame construction, the post-and-beam building style makes for event barns that will outlast many neighboring structures as the decades wear on. Post-and-beam wedding barns will last one hundred years or more if given proper upkeep over time, and are often the last structures to remain standing in the wake of a natural disaster. Additionally, their employment of heavy timbers as structural support means increased flexibility in terms of the event barn’s interior layout. This makes for stunning wedding barns with tall ceilings and dramatically open inside spaces. These sweeping interiors are the perfect setting for celebrating “I dos” with loved ones.


Every now and then, customers approach us with questions about converting an existing barn into a fully-functioning wedding and event barn. While it’s certainly not outside the realm of possibility, the reality is that it can be a costly and painstaking process. Renovating an old barn is more expensive than most people realize, and with that process can come a frustrating number of regulatory roadblocks to deal with in order to bring the barn up to code. Hidden costs by way of fumigation and re-engineering fees can run a bigger bill than a brand new wedding barn design when all is said and done. Unless the existing barn is in really great shape, chances are high that an all new event barn will make for a better investment long-term. When it comes to putting money into a property and business, effort should be made to maximize the value of the structure.
