One of the more popular style of weddings these days are the ones that have that rustic look and feel to them. So, if you are looking for a more laid-back style of wedding, then you might want to consider that rustic style and go with a Farm Barn Ranch Wedding. Besides, they make for great rustic-style wedding photos. Three16 Photography specializes in rustic wedding photos at farm barn ranch venues in Orange County, Los Angeles and throughout Southern California.
Farm wedding venues often offer more space for your guests at the venue than many other venues, as well as the parking lot. Most often the ceremony and reception are all in one location, which makes it more convenient that attending the ceremony at one venue and then traveling to another venue for the reception. A farm wedding will usually have tables and benches and string lighting, but it is more than likely a blank canvas for you to decorate the way you want it. Also, having an outdoor farm wedding reception has enough space to include many outdoor games and events.
Having your wedding ceremony and reception on a farm setting, either on an outdoor ranch or indoor barn makes for amazing rustic photography. Farm Wedding Venues often have some stunning surrounding that will offer you a variety of really nice backdrops to be used in your photos. Depending on the particular venue, they may have farm animals that they allow to be used in your photos.
Orange County has some really nice farm wedding venues to consider, such as the Red Horse Barn, Newland Barn and the Strawberry Farms Golf Course, which has a barn and ranch style area.
If you’re considering outside of Orange County, then check out Hold Out Ranch, Calamigos Ranch and Riley’s Farms.

Be sure to list all the possible things that can go wrong and address them with the event coordinator. That way many items can be prevented or at least you can prepare for the negative. Other than that, weddings held on farms, in barns, on ranches are a really great way to go.
