Several years ago I was ask to help a friend that was using the family farm for her wedding and they planned to use the barn for the reception. Let me begin by saying I am from town and have really never been to a farm before this visit and as she was driving me down the bumpy farm lane I ask her what the animals were in the fields and she looked at me and said COWS! I said OH, but they are not black and white so that gives you an idea of what I know about farms.
We cleaned out the barn of everything we could and stored things in side wings using bales of hay to hide things and then power washed ( low power) everything we could or at least hosed things down and the beams and planks were beautiful. We put several thousand white Christmas lights up in the beams, and used rented tables and chairs and the place looked great. I called every great aunt I had and borrowed blue mason jars ( the kind with the glass tops) and filled them with wild flowers many from the farm and some from a flower shop for centerpieces. A portion of the barn was full of hay and it smelled great. It was a late afternoon wedding and there was a buffet dinner and dancing late into the night. It was one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever attended and the barn made such a wonderful setting for the reception. I am sure you will have a beautiful event and if you can charm the trees to be blooming the day of the wedding like in the photo it will be fantastic.
Have fun treasure hunting on your way to the alter
