Rustic Barn Weddings Are Increasing in Popularity and Offer Many Options

20160507_161728Weddings typically are associated with white churches and fancy banquet halls. But for many brides, a countryside barn is the new hotspot to be wed. The trend for rustic weddings has become increasingly popular in Michigan and is not a passing fad. Whether it is on reality TV wedding shows or in bridal magazines, barn weddings can be found just about anywhere a person looks. One example is the Calf Barn at the Van Hoosen Farm in Rochester Hills. Built in 1927, the Calf Barn that has a capacity of 150 guests. This adaptively reused building is fully handicapped accessible and is located conveniently across the street from the Van Hoosen Farmhouse.

Located in historic Stony Creek Village, the 1840 Van Hoosen Farmhouse was home to five generations of the Taylor and Van Hoosen families and has been carefully preserved and furnished with antiques belonging to the families. Amanda and Jacob choose this venue because of its flexibility. The farm has a lovely white gazebo but threatening weather led to their decision to move the wedding indoors. Lilac was the color theme represented in the bridesmaids dresses and bouquets created by Floral Designs by Lori. Anthony Lambert of The Gala House officiated the ceremony and recited the touching “These Are the Hands” poem. Coordinators Jackie Gignac  and Jenna Raschke gave the couple great advice on the weather and helped us with cues and set up.

If you are considering a historic barn wedding but want modern amenities with a clean, open room feel, consider Van Hoosen Farm in Rochester Hills.

Thank-you Amanda and Jacob for allowing us to be part of your day.  Best wishes!
