We are so excited for the couples who are currently planning to celebrate their wedding days with us at the Grand Ol’ Barn, and we always love meeting new couples and their families who are interested in learning more about our property. Although all of our couples have slightly different styles, which we love, we thought we would share more about one area they all have in common: Our couples choose to celebrate at the Grand Ol’ Barn because they’re excited that we’re more than a venue.
Some venues open their doors for weddings and gatherings, and they’re thrilled to welcome a complete team of professionals to transform their spaces for the client’s wedding. We love welcoming fellow Florida wedding professionals, but we also include a number of items with your venue rental because we want you to have a complete experience when you’re with us on our property.
Today, we thought we would share more about the amenities that combine (if our couples wish!) to create a wonderful Grand Ol’ Barn wedding day.
Like we mentioned, the couples who choose to celebrate at the Grand Ol’ Barn all have different styles. Though “barn” is in our name, our style reaches far beyond rustic. We love when couples incorporate modern, bohemian, and even industrial wedding styles. Plus, we enjoy working with couples as they explore how to transform their ceremony, cocktail, and reception spaces.
We have an onsite floral studio, and our team always enjoys reimagining the interior and exterior spaces on our property for our couples. Plus, the fact that our team is already onsite allows for a seamless floral delivery on your wedding day!
One of the potential elements that can cause stress on a wedding day is when the couple needs to get ready offsite because there aren’t spaces available for the bride, bridesmaids, groom, and groomsmen. When we designed the Grand Ol’ Barn’s wedding spaces, we wanted to make sure everyone could get ready here.
Inside our bridal suite, you will find 360-degree mirrors, makeup tables for your hair and makeup team, and we always present a coffee and mimosa bar. It wouldn’t be a wedding day without champagne!
And, we didn’t forget about the groom and his groomsmen! Inside their suite, rustic style is embraced, and the gents will be greeted with a whiskey bar, a shower (just in case!), darts, and TVs to watch the game.
We have an outdoor space on our property that’s wonderful for wedding ceremonies. But, if you would prefer to ensure your guests are cool, we also have three indoor spaces available.
We also offer 12 ceremony backdrops that range from rustic to modern and bohemian, and we invite you to choose one that will beautifully incorporate your wedding’s style. We’ll gladly set it up for you, and our onsite floral team can add blooms.
Lastly, think about welcoming your guests to your ceremony with our sweet tea bar! Our recipe is one of our personal favorites, and it’s complimentary for all guests to enjoy.
Your Grand Ol’ Barn rental comes with the use of our 20 whiskey barrels, and we frequently recommend that couples debut them during their cocktail hour. They work perfectly as high cocktail tables, and they can easily double as gift and welcome tables. Also, consider placing heirloom family photos on top of barrels. There are so many options!
Just like your ceremony, we also welcome you to enjoy cocktail hour with your guests indoors or outdoors. Personally, our porch is our favorite location. We include market lights, and we also offer décor and linens.
Our AV equipment also allows you to play a playlist over our sound system, which means you will be able to save on having a band or DJ play during your cocktail hour.
The moments you spend dancing, dining, and sharing conversations with your guests as they celebrate you during your wedding reception are why we love hosting weddings at the Grand Ol’ Barn. So you can focus on enjoying your reception, we always include all of the rentals at our property, which means tables, chairs, linens, and even centerpieces are complimentary.
Although we have venue, floral, and design teams onsite, we do welcome you to invite the professional caterer of your choice to design and serve your wedding day menu. We have a partial commercial kitchen with a staging area, dishwasher, sinks, and stove. Your team will be all set to cook and serve!
We cannot wait to welcome you to the Grand Ol’ Barn, and we invite you to contact us to learn more!
