Red and Gold Wedding Inspo That Proves a Barn Can Be Glamorous, Too

Just because your wedding venue happens to be a barn, that doesn’t mean you have to go full-blown rustic with your theme. Glitz and glamor are still an option, as you will see in this red and gold styled shoot by Clarity & Class and Sharmila Photography.

The theme behind the styled shoot was “enchanted love story,” which served to marry high and low elements: a barn setting with gold accents.  “For our team’s gold and reds inspired enchanted love story, I immediately began with the venue,” says planner Sonia Hernandez of Clarity & Class. “I knew that a barn would be my ultimate goal, and I was so lucky to have come across Robin Hill Farms.”

When it came to choosing a model, Hernandez knew she wanted to embrace the diversity of the region. “One of the greatest things about living in the National Capital Region is our exposure to different cultures,” says Hernandez. “Our model, Ledet, had the natural beauty and has amazing curly hair.”

The mix of organic and elegant came to life in the tablescape with a mix of wicker and wood combined with an antique gold vase.  The theme was rounded out with a red velvet naked cake, which was given a touch of glam with a gold script topper.
