Barns and rustic venues are some of my favorite spaces to work with, but as we all know, they can be hard to find. The following photos, taken at Shadow Lawn in High Falls, New York by the talented Jonas Peterson, are from a beautiful wedding. For these types of affairs, I love creating a laid-back elegance by mixing in glamorous details like whimsical light fixtures and old silver.
I love this image of the bride and groom walking into the barn to greet their guests.
We used long, vintage wooden farm tables and accented the space with chandeliers.
For locations such as these, outdoor lighting is just as important as the ambient light inside the barn. The string lights were festive but also practical, illuminating the cocktail area for guests.
