The Big White Barn

The Big White Barn has a passion for faith, family, and community.  The barn was born out of those passions. The owners are Christian homeschoolers and part of that homeschooling experience is attending contra dances.  (If you’ve ever seen Gone with the Wind and the Virginia Reel, then you’ve basically got the idea.)

The Big White Barn

The owners built The Big White Barn on three basic principles:

  1. Create something truly beautiful
  2. Create a place for the community to come together
  3. Create a place where families are born and supported

Because the Big White Barn is a barn venue, it’s often described as “rustic”.

The owners have also strived to bring a vintage beauty to their venue from the antique vanities in the bridal suite, to the lights and draping in the main areas. They might best be described as Rustic Elegance.

One other unique feature of The Big White Barn is its playground. Tastefully designed to compliment the beauty of the venue itself, the playground is also another example of their passion for families and bringing the larger community together.

Dream clients of the Big White Barn wedding venue include those who want to spend their wedding day surrounded by friends and family in the natural beauty of North Texas. They are easygoing and joyfully anticipating their wedding day!

The top 4 features of the venue include:

  1. The ceremony lawn overlooking the pond
  2. The outdoor pavilion which expands your ceremony/cocktail hour options
  3. The unique Bridal Suite and unique and Groom Suite
  4. The gorgeous high-ceiling barn

The Big White Barn allows outside vendors which means you can choose from their recommendations or work with your personal favorites. They offer a great deal of flexibility in customizing your day, from the block of time available to unique layout options. Their staff is fabulous and strives to provide great customer service with a personal touch. They are knowledgeable about vendors in the area, including local Decatur amenities, and are happy to pull additional information for you if need!
