Okay so it’s no secret that we do love barn venues. Super romantic with the ability to be rustic yet modern. But seeing this vintage HammerSky wedding last week really set us off on a full on obsession with barns, more so than ever before. Well, lucky us, The Venue Report shared their list of the top barn wedding venues in the USA. We couldn’t resist. Take a look and let us know your faves.

Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California. As if Carmel wasn’t already a breathtaking place to say I Do, the previous owner in the 1920s held lavish Gatsby-like parties at this estate + barn. Imagine the possibilities!

Cedar Lakes Estate wedding venue

Cedar Lakes Estate in Greenville, New York is a camp setting at it’s FINEST. And we do mean finest. It’s set on 500 acres and yet somehow only 70 miles from Manhattan. Better set a date for autumn, remember those viewsPhoto by Pat Furey.

Okay, there’s one more. We just had to. You’ll understand when you see this photo:

Vista West Ranch Texas wedding venue

Right?! Vista West Ranch in Dripping Springs, Texas is bohemian, rustic, and bridal chic. A vintage wedding would be so at home here.

Citrus Salt
To make citrus salt, grate the zest of a lemon and a lime with a microplane grater. Stir the zest into salt and let it sit for 10 minutes (to allow the oils from the citrus to coat the salt).

Mezcal cocktail recipe | 100 Layer Cake  plus Crate and Barrel

Rim a rocks glass (like the Lulie Stemless Martini Glass) with the citrus salt. Shake the mezcal, lime, curacao, and orgeat with ice in fancy cocktail shaker and strain over ice into the salt-rimmed glass.
