Discover The Carolina Barn, a Romantic Farm Wedding Venue in NC with Southern Charm
When you visit The Carolina Barn, you may never want to leave. In the South, there’s a funny question that we ask folks who are behaving without manners, “Were you raised in a barn?” However, when it comes to this wedding venue, we would be more than happy to be raised in this barn! Discover Carolina Barn by scrolling through this luxury, green and white styled wedding shoot.
Explore 38ft high, floor to ceiling walls of warm pine wood. Revel in the rustic elegance of the barn’s interior design and outdoor landscape. This barn and farm wedding venue has the magnificence of a country queen’s castle. Even the Queen of England would have reason to be jealous! Located on McCormick Farms in Spring Lake, NC, Carolina Barn has been owned and operated by family for over 220 years. Today, the barn has been restored to host classy corporate events, bashful bridal showers, rowdy wedding receptions, and more!
The following photos were taken by Morgan Caddell Photography. This photo shoot was a styled wedding planned by Vision Events Wedding and Event Planning. Although this is not a real wedding, the models are a married couple in real life!
Custom Calligraphy and Wedding Stationery by Mason Dixon Designs
Wedding invitations are a beautiful, traditional art form that can express the theme and colors of your event. Mason Dixon Designs created this suite of rustic paper and classic calligraphy to set the tone for the styled wedding shoot. Based in Raleigh, NC, Mason Dixon is inspired by each of their clients unique style. Green floral print grows inside the envelope liner and across the wrap in this wedding invitation suite, capturing the Southern style of this wedding design. We love the minimalist, white sketch of the barn wedding venue on the square paper insert. Mason Dixon Designs can design and create wedding stationery, welcome signs, escort cards, and any other calligraphy request for your upcoming wedding.
Getting Ready in Luxurious Bridal Suites at The Carolina Barn
In addition to ceremony and reception event spaces, The Carolina Barn is home to bridal suites where you can get ready in Southern style. Step inside The Virginia Room. A bright lofty space with rustic chic furnishings, marble vanities, and picture perfect natural lighting. We love the idea of a bride and bridesmaids getting hair and makeup ready in the intimate elegance of this space. With soft blue walls and crisp white pillows, the barn’s bridal suite decor is the definition of soothing. Right outside the bridal suite is a dramatic pine wood staircase that leads down into the Grand Pine Room. Imagine walking down that staircase in your wedding dress and making a grand entrance into your wedding reception! Wow.
Sunset Wedding Ceremony in the Meadows of The Carolina Barn
As we continue to tour the barn through this styled wedding shoot, let’s take a step outside. Oh look! Just in time for a sunset wedding ceremony in the meadow. This wedding ceremony design features a circular arrangement of chairs. This design gives every wedding guest a unique angle to witness the bride and groom share their vows. The dark wood ceremony chairs contrast beautifully with the rustic setting of the meadow. In the center of the circle the bride and groom stand beneath a breathtaking asymmetrical flower arbor. With this stunning green centerpiece, there is no need for other aisle decor. After the newlyweds exit, guests will be invited to take part in a cocktail hour on The Veranda or hors d’oevres in the Grand Pine Room.
Making a Statement — Wedding Reception Rentals from CE Rental
With two main wedding colors, white and green, you may have imagined a simple wedding reception design. Think again. Sometimes less is more! The team behind this styled wedding shoot filled the barn with luxury wedding decor inspired by white and green. Modern table settings displaying square dinner plates and fun ceramic textures from CE Rental make a sassy statement. Tall white vases filled with magnolia tree branches give a gracious nod to the blooming Southern landscape. Ghost chairs at each table allow for the shimmering linens from CE Rental to shine without being hidden by wooden chairs.
The head table lies in wait below one of the many magnificent, crystal chandeliers. Framed by soft white drapery, the head table feels like a romantic room of its own. This head table stands out among the round tables with a rustic farm wood tabletop and a crown of greenery surrounding it’s ceiling. The bride, groom, and bridal party could sit at this head table and feel like royalty. This elegantly styled wedding reception is filled with the endless possibilities for what your event in The Carolina Barn could look like.
