For brides who love the idea of a southern charm filled wedding day, and who are considering a barn wedding venue, there are many things to consider. Through my personal process of helping brides as a wedding photographer, I love chatting about how certain decisions planning your wedding day can affect a number of other things that you may not have thought about before. For instance, choosing a white barn instead of a natural wood color barn can greatly influence your wedding day photos, since the white gives off more natural lighting and color for skin tones. This is just one of the things that a white barn wedding venue, a modern take on southern barns, can benefit you on your wedding day.
In this blog post, I am exploring my top 3 favorite white barn wedding venues, and hope that it is helpful in your search for that perfect place to host your wedding!
1. Oak Meadow Event Center
As I mentioned above, a white barn brings about the most natural lighting, especially when you have indoor photos taken, while still giving that southern charm you love so much. At Oak Meadow Event Center, you not only will have a spectacular white barn for your wedding ceremony and reception, but what makes this particular venue so stunning is that they have ample windows inside the barn. This creates an even more natural, airy feel and allows for the best authentic photos. Check out more about this venue here!
2. Pursell Farms
If you haven’t been wowed yet, then you definitely need to book a tour at Pursell Farms (and inquire about wedding photography here as well!). Pursell Farms is widely known in the south, and is even considered a destination wedding location. Set on acres upon acres of the most immaculate grounds you can imagine, and with a one of a kind view, your wedding will be nothing short of luxurious at this white barn wedding venue.

3. Auburn Oaks Farm
Incredible staff, accommodating venue, and scenery that is to die for are all things that make this white barn wedding venue the place to be. White they offer recreational activities on non-wedding days, this is one of the greatest wedding venues (barn or not!) in the south. Located in Auburn, AL, just a few short hours from Birmingham, call this place home for your wedding weekend and click here to read all about how this venue can serve you and your family on the wedding day!
