I will admit that I am a bit biased when it comes to this post as my wedding and reception was held in a barn (in Georgia) and I have always loved the rustic, antique, country look when it comes to pretty much anything. But as rustic weddings have become so extremely popular I thought I would share a few beautiful barn venues in Western, MA that I have photographed at to help those currently planning and in search of the perfect barn venue.
located in Amherst, MassachusettsThe Red Barn is located on Hampshire College’s campus in Amherst, Massachusetts. It’s a beautiful red barn with lots of character and large windows for gorgeous natural light. (A photographers dream!) On the grounds is an enormous oak tree in the middle of the surrounding field which is the perfect location for any wedding ceremony or vow renewal! The Barn also features a large deck off of the side, perfect for cocktail hour.
Here are a few of my favorite photos taken at The Red Barn at Hampshire College.
Quonquont Farm is located in Whately, Massachusetts. The venue itself is a large barn and also on the property are a couple other barns and silos which serve as great backdrops for photographs. For your ceremony you can get married in the barn or among the beautiful apple orchards surrounding the venue.
Here are a few of my favorite photographs from this venue.
The Salem Cross Inn is located in West Brookfield, Massachusetts. This barn has a ton of character due to its age, history and all of the antiques hung from the walls and ceilings and also features a loft for additional seating. At the Salem Cross Inn the barn is connected to a beautiful colonial home and is surrounded by gorgeous farmlands. Here are a few of my favorite images I have photographed at this venue.
