We always get excited when we have brides and grooms ask us about renting a Fotio photo booth for their vintage themed Chicago barn wedding. We love the unique style and rustic feel that comes with a barn type atmosphere - plus our vintage open air photo booth style fits in perfectly! There are so many unique barn type venues around Chicagoland and the surrounding suburbs but here are a few of our favorites. First is the Hoosier Grove Barn, a beautiful and simple wedding venue in a renovated historic barn, located in the northwest side of Chicago in Streamwood, Illinois.
Another one of our favorite barn style wedding venues is Heritage Prairie Farms located west of Chicago in Elburn, IL. Heritage Prairie Farm is a certified organic farm (the food is absolutely delicious here!) and they have a magnificent barn area that is used for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, and photo booth fun. Generally the reception is held in the tented area since the barn is a bit small for larger groups but the barn still works great for Fotio since guests pass by use the restrooms. We love the rustic backdrop and easy going atmosphere here!
The next Chicagoland barn wedding venue on our list is the County Line Orchard located in northwest Indiana in Hobart, IN. The County Line Orchard has a sensational 29,000 square foot timber barn that was built in 2009. This is a beautiful and huge venue perfect for a rustic themed wedding. The wooden barn walls work beautifully for a Fotio photo booth backdrop.
Some of our other fun barn weddings have been at the Byron Colby Barn in Grayslake, IL, the Mora Farm in Waterman, IL, the Blue Dress Barn in Benton Harbor, Michigan, and Donley's Wild West Town in Union, IL.
