Southern Rustic Barn Weddings

Due to the vast farmland properties that span this rural town, it is an area where brides tend to book more Southern rust barn weddings than most parts of the country. In this impressive showing of talent, the desire was to illustrate for future brides how sophisticated and dare-we-say luxury can be achieved in Eclectic, Alabama. The breathtaking open air acreage overlooks a lovely lake. Right here, opens up ways to transform any celebration. Just think lakeside ceremony and barn reception or even vice versa. The juxtaposition of fine china and the use of custom water color paintings against the woodsy area already elevate the scene. Balancing the organic, rustic feel with modern and vintage touches. Romantic floral is always a must have against a rustic backdrop that this glorious old barn offers. These varying shades simply bring it to a whole new level. Coupled with contemporary décor elements like the ceremony staging by the lake or the hanging wooden chandelier provides a unique blend to the design. Unexpected. Yet, one that through its simplicity takes the overall look up a notch. Southern rustic barn weddings always have a way to our hearts and there's certainly endless possibilities to bring it to a level of rustic glam.
