I had the pleasure of being invited to set up the photo booth at The White Barn Venue’s Open House/Grand Opening on Friday, and I was completely blown away! Conveniently located just outside of downtown Madison Indiana, the venue is surrounded by so many picturesque views that it would be almost impossible to have a bad background for photos! Brian and Shelly Dews who own this venue truly put so much thought and detail into every square inch – everywhere I looked I kept finding little details that pleased every shabby-chic loving bone in my body!

As I walked through the vendor drop-off entrance of the barn, I felt like I was walking into a bridal magazine. Not one inch of space was wasted, there were Pinterest-perfect decorations meticulously placed throughout the entire barn. My favorite piece of course was the chandelier! Who knew an old barn could look this amazing.
Literally everywhere I looked their was something that I loved. The distressed antique chairs at the head table were just so adorable, and they went well with the greenery down the runner of the table. Pretty lights, signage, and other decorative pieces that would make even Joanna Gaines swoon were all over the place. Check out the photos that I took before I set up the photo booth!
For this event, I knew I had to be set up the Portrait Style Booth quickly so I only packed a few props. I grabbed the trusty gold frame, a few of my custom signs that I made just for this event, and some pretty masks. Typically for a wedding, I’ll have tons of hats, glasses, boas, and a lot more signs to make sure everyone has something fun to wear for their photos.
We had gorgeous sunshine and the booth was right in the shade, so we didn’t need any external lighting for this event. We set up outside because there was several other vendors inside, but when I was walking around the barn before people started showing up, I saw plenty of really great spots to set up inside. I didn’t bring a backdrop either because I knew there would be perfect barn wood backdrops everywhere I looked!
