Some of our favorite photos involve the couple getting ready for their big day. We love to capture all the intimate moments between family and friends that happen before the wedding starts. Some barn venues provide beautiful changing areas, some have tiny changing rooms, and others don’t have any space for this at all. Remember – both halves of the wedding party must get ready, so you need two separate spaces large enough to accommodate your wedding party. If you’ll be doing hair and makeup at the venue instead of in a salon, that requires even more room. Talk to your venue early in the planning process so you can make outside arrangements if necessary. If you can’t get ready in the barn comfortably, you could book a hotel room or a nearby Airbnb.
