The Barn at Willowynn Wedding Venue

Established in 2019, The Barn at Willowynn is a modern barn venue located in Santa Fe, just a few miles from the Texas coastline. Located inside a cattle farm, this picturesque property has many amenities to make your wedding day vision come to life. Featuring a modern barn, picture perfect landscaping, and hints of rustic charm throughout, the venue also has an outdoor chapel and other outdoor spaces to create the best ceremony location for your wedding day.

The Barn at Willowynn is the ideal mix of classic and modern. The white walls, modern windows, and high ceilings flood the space with light and provide a modern touch. But the space also has rustic details, like Edison bulbs and a wood celling that bring warmth and a sense of timelessness into the venue.

The star of the grounds are the old Oak trees spread throughout the property, and they make the most lovely backdrop for photos of your big day. The Barn at Willowynn provides stunning light for any wedding which will make you and your family and friends the star of any wedding photos. Because we all know how fickle Texas weather can be, the outdoor chapel and separate ceremony space allow for weddings regardless of rain, sun, or even the occasional snowfall. The pond makes a nice backdrop especially in the early fall as gulf coast birds swoop across its tranquil top hoping to be featured in your wedding photo.
