Ever growing in popularity, barns like The High Meadows at Vinewood make the ideal venue for brides who wish their special day to radiate a rustic, relaxed vibe. But what few realize is that barns can also be dressed up to house a more modern-looking affair, as this rehearsal dinner planned by Storybook Wedding Consulting clearly reveals! An event filled with an all-year-round appropriate color palette of ivory, tan and peach, see how simple decor decisions can give your celebration all the class and style of a contemporary city celebration while still carrying an undertone of country charm.

For your outdoor celebration, attach your escort cards to a wooden picture frame and hang it from the limb of a tree.
This chic brown and white soft seating for the event’s cocktail hour was provided by AFR Event Furnishings. To add a touch of rustic comfort to the look a hay bale was used in place of a table. Gorgeous white drapes framed the opening to the barn, brought in by Event Drapery.
To help keep family as the focus of the rehearsal dinner, artwork of the family tree was hung on the wall just inside the entryway. A trio of framed black and white photos were also displayed. At the center was the soon to-be-married couple, while photos of both sets of parents on their wedding days were hung on either side.
A delicious array of desserts was provided by Blooming Flour Bakery, including bourbon pecan bars and salted caramel cupcakes.
An elegant champagne button rose linen from I Do Linens covered the long estate table, bringing contemporary sophistication to the barn’s glowing interior. To further strengthen the modern feel, gold and brown striped lamp shades were affixed to the chandeliers.
Simple brown paper bags were used to hold gifts for guests. DecoMarj created the lovely labels from ivory cardstock, cut and embellished with tea stained lace and bordered with a perfectly peach paper.
