Recently, we headed out into the wilds of Coweta to tour one of Newnan’s newest event centers. We received a warm welcome from The Barn’s manager, Ashley. Ashley was cheerful and energetic as she guided us around the large property.
The barn is a rustic structure set in the middle of a green field beside a large, beautiful pond.
The enclosed kitchen, bar, fire pits and vintage church pews make it stand out from similar venues.
We were impressed by the simple, rough wooden tables that were each hand made.
A few feet away from the barn is a large, old oak tree that will see many couples pledge their forever love to each other.
Lush plants surround a small wooden platform under the tree.
We noticed strings of lights and lanterns everywhere and can only imagine that it turns into a glittering magical place in the evening.
Not far from the barn is a large, classically southern house with a wraparound porch.
This is where bridal parties can spend the hours before the wedding relaxing, getting ready and preparing for the big event.
The bottom level of the house is fit up for the boys. It has a weight rack, large raquetball court, sauna and large screen TV.
The middle floor has a large living area, a kitchen and a lovely area for smaller events.
With large windows and wooden walls, this space mimics the rustic feel of the barn.
The upstairs of the house contains the bridal suite. It’s a beautifully decorated space dotted with comfy couches. There is a large bathroom, a 360 degree mirror with a pedestal and an airy veranda that overlooks the pool.
Ashley laughed as she told us that she is constantly adding new amenities to The Barn.
As the founder and owner of Flower Child Weddings and former employee of “Say Yes to the Dress”, she came to this job with the knowledge of what brides want in a venue. She works hard to make sure the bride has the a relaxed wedding day. She does this by being very flexible with wishes and requests.
The decor in the main house is customizable to the bride’s wishes, the venue pricing is nearly all inclusive and the wedding party gets the space for the entire day for no additional charge.
As she is talking to us, it is easy to see that she has found her passion in life in helping brides have their perfect day.
Her creativity and unique eye is apparent in every aspect of the venue.
