We love to see weddings where the bride and groom found creative ways to integrate photographs of family and friends into their special day. Photographs add a personal touch unlike any other, whether they honor the memory of a loved one or provide guests with a humorous glimpse into the childhood of the couple of the hour. Place framed images from your engagement session on your escort card table, attach a small locket to your bridal bouquet, or come up with your own, unique way to display memories frozen in time. The effect will be quite unforgettable.

Feel free to play up the barn theme by incorporating a related motif such as cowboy hats, boots, or horseshoes. Take a look at these images to see how to finesse a barn reception with style.
