Wedding Styled Shoot at Barn at Sandcastle Farm

I had so much fun doing our very first styled shoot at the Barn at Sandcastle Farm! Boy was this group of vendors, and fellow photographers, a joy to work with. This day screamed bohemian and we are here for it! Barn weddings are incredibly popular right now. As a result, this new venue is sure to be a hit for current brides.

The Location

This venue is over a century old, and is located in Dallas, North Carolina. It is available for a wide range of photographic events, not just weddings. For instance, they allow family and engagement photography, or any type of party. They are simply happy to host! The capacity of this venue is 175 guests. Due to their generous personality, they are kind enough to do the set-up and break down of the tables and chairs. They have select décor and furniture available, and even offer polyester linens for the tables. There is a full catering kitchen, a bridal suite, and they allow full use of the farm for portraits! Because of this, we are excited to pass their name along to couples wanting a barn wedding.

The Décor

This styled shoot was coordinated by Kayla Adams Photography. The overall design was put together by A Bushel and A Peck. The tablescape, in particular, was designed by Vintage Chic Rentals and Designs. The truly unique place settings, along with the macrame on the walls, made the reception space unforgettable!

And let’s not forget the florals that tied every piece of this day together! They were created by Wildflowers Floral Design. The color palette is one we swooned over all day. For instance, look at the bride’s bouquet and the reception tablescape. The pops of pink and muted golden yellows are a feast for the eyes. As a result, the images from this day were nothing short of stellar.

We hope this gives inspiration to current and future couples! Love our work? Get in touch! We’d love to speak with you about your photography needs.

Happy planning!
