Venue Spotlight: The Wedding Barn at L'Horne
Hey party people! It's time for week #3 in my Middle Georgia Venue series! I am excited to share this week's spot with you, especially because its owner is so sweet and has become a friend to me. The Wedding Barn at L'Horne is a new venue in Middle Georgia, but its history is actually not new at all. For those of you looking for a rustic chic atmosphere, take a closer look!
From the owner, Anna:
"L’Horne was started in 1900 when the L’Horne family loaned the start-up money for the farm and their name was used in honor of that loan. The old barn was built in 1900 and we love its history! It used to host the Byron City dances upstairs back in the day! My husband is nearing retirement and we want to travel the country in our fifth wheel and see the sights. Our son thought rather than having to travel across town to take care of our property we should buy some land together and he would be here to manage it when we traveled. We came out to see this property and fell in love with it. The realtor mentioned allowing weddings in the old barn to help cover some of the costs - that was the first time I had heard of a barn wedding. Little did we know it is a BIG thing! We decided to build a new barn farther back on the property. It has been a labor of love and a great bonding time with our son!"
