The trend for 2016 weddings was definitely barns, barns, and more barns! We probably photographed 10+ weddings in barns last year, and each barn setting has its own unique feeling and positive attributes.
Here’s a run-down on my favorite 3 barn wedding venues in East Tennessee/North GA.
This venue has it all, including a beautiful bridal suite/house that is staged perfectly for taking gorgeous getting ready photos. The 2 weddings that we photographed there last year had outdoor ceremonies, but I’m told that they can accommodate ceremonies inside the barn as well! The owners also offer wedding day coordinating services, which I highly recommend taking advantage of. Plus, they will drive you in a golf cart up to a beautiful scenic point so that we can take your bride & groom wedding photos there!
I was so surprised that Coffey Barn is located in the heart of Cleveland, TN - but when you get there, you would think you are in the middle of nowhere! Plenty of photo ops (such as a awesome vintage truck in the front), large reception area, and beautiful wedding ceremony site at this barn! The getting ready space is a little tight for a large wedding party, so if you have more than a few ladies in your bridal party, I do recommend getting hair/makeup done off-site. But, other than that, this Barn is an excellent option for your wedding day!
If you want to be able to walk in and have a lot of the wedding decor work done for you, I think The Barn at Drewia is a great option! Of course, you can customize it to your own liking, but the general decor is just perfect! Having the wedding ceremony inside or outside is up to you! The only drawback is that it’s in a somewhat remote location, however this can be a total bonus — it’s like taking an exciting wedding day adventure!
