Best Wedding Barn Venue in the Southeast 2017

I’ve attended more than my fair share of weddings throughout the southeast over the years. Sadly, only as a guest most often and a few bridesmaid situations but never as the bride.  These events were in locales that varied from beaches, to ornate historic churches, to mountainside retreats, and other various locations.  My favorite recent wedding was down in a little town in Laurel Hill FL over in the Florida PanHandle called  “The Barn at Water Oaks“. Unlucky for me, my phone was at 7% to start for the morning so I didn’t take any photos that day.  The 400 guest barn wedding venue is only 1 hour away from the popular Destin, FL beach destination and 10 minutes away from the relaxing Lake town of Florala, AL. I can imagine this would keep most guests happy to consider this a vacation wedding!!
