Check out this gorgeous wedding held in the summer at Betsy's Barn

featured wedding venue

If you are not getting married in a church or other outside venue, Betsy's Barn offers several locations for your wedding ceremony. The options include wedding in the romantic gazebo, saying your vows under a large oak tree, gathering your guests inside the barn, or having the stunning natural backdrop of the open field. The hard part is choosing!

Betsy's Barn is a beautiful venue and needs little in terms of decorations, but every couple likes to add their own personal touch to their big day. This venue permits outside decorations, but does have some restrictions. Be sure to check in with your wedding coordinator before bringing anything from offsite. Popular decorations that add to the pastoral setting include flowers, paper lanterns, and string lights. 

This is a must regardless of venue, but especially important if you are planning on using the outdoor settings at Betsy's Barn. Luckily, the venue can accommodate last-minute changes due to weather, and you need not worry about a little rain affecting your big day. It always helps to be prepared though, so periodically checking the weather prior to the wedding day is recommended!

Check the Weather

This is usually done before picking a venue, but it is worth pointing out here that Betsy's Barn requires a minimum guest count for booking your wedding. If you are planning a small and intimate wedding, this may not be the right choice for you. Betsy's Barn requires at least 130 guests, with a maximum of 300 guests, so we recommend sorting out your guest list prior to booking with this facility. 

Betsy's Barn is an all-inclusive wedding venue that offers full-service catering, however they are known specifically for their pig roast. Many couples choose this option since it adds to the rustic atmosphere and really "wows" their guests. If a pig roast isn't up your alley, Betsy's Barn will work with you to plan the perfect meal for your reception.

How can we book you?

You will get both! I photograph every wedding using two different cameras -- one dedicated to black and white and the other to color. The ratio of black and white to color photos you receive in your gallery may change based on your chosen wedding colors, venue, and/or preference. If you see a black and white image that you want in color, or vice versa, it is very likely that I will have it and can add it to your gallery. 

I see mostly black and white Photos in your portfolio. will we get ANY photos in color?
