Host a Country Wedding in the Heart of Grayslake at the Byron Colby Barn
Have you always dreamed of a rustic wedding surrounded by breathtaking nature? Just because you are based in the city does not mean you have to forgo a romantic country wedding. Located in Grayslake, an hour outside of downtown Chicago, the Byron Colby Barn brings rustic charm and stunning elegance together in a way that will make all your dreams of a country wedding come true.
Our Chicago wedding photographers are thrilled whenever we get the chance to shoot in this location. Situated in the eco-conscious Prairie Crossing Community, this barn is known to be one of the most popular do-it-yourself venues! So how about designing your own wedding just how you want it to be?! Let the barn be your canvas as you paint it with the color of love!
The Byron Colby Barn is home to various options where you can have a rustic yet chic wedding ceremony. Choose from the gorgeous tree-lined Market Square brick courtyard, the gazebo or within the barn. Wherever you decide to say your vows, trust our wedding photography to capture the magic of it all!
The barn, comprised of hardwood floors, wooden beams, a second-story balcony, and vaulted high ceilings creates a romantic ambiance that is ideal for wedding photography. Host your reception with up to 160 guests inside the Byron Colby Barn as a grand piano and antique furniture in the barn bring out the old-world charm in your wedding photographs. As you and your partner enjoy your big day, allow us to capture the vibes of rustic country-romance everywhere!
We love capturing photos of couples under the gazebo, beach, and prairie at Prairie Crossing. Every inch of this property is stunning. Venture out from the celebrations for a little while, with your sweetheart, exploring all these gorgeous surrounding spots and let our photographers work their magic!
The loft is another place where we love to shoot. Your guests would also enjoy the view of the entire barn, complete with the string lights and joyful celebrations, from up in the loft. And while they do so, let our proficient photographers capture candid shots from every angle reflecting the cheerful vibes of your special day!
As the sun goes down, you could head to the limestone that overlooks the stunning Lake Aldo Leopold. The golden hour, with its various hues in the sky, would create a magical backdrop for your romantic pictures! Our Chicago wedding photographers would love to click mesmerizing shots of you both, which will look like a movie poster of your love story!
For a city-based bride that is dreaming of a romantic country wedding, the 1880s Byron Colby Barn is the perfect wedding venue to make all your wedding dreams come true!
