A few months ago we were invited by Snippet & Ink Select vendor Paula LeDuc Fine Catering to attend the opening party of Peace Barn in Bolinas – and we have to say, it is a seriously beautiful space! You might remember this gorgeous wedding one lucky couple held there when it was a private estate. We’re so excited to announce that through our friends at Paula LeDuc Fine Catering, you can now have this stunning spot as the location for your very own wedding!
Paula LeDuc Fine Catering put together an incredible faux wedding at the property, to give you inspiration for all the different ways you could style it for your own celebrations. First, we’ll start with this stunning ceremony inspiration overlooking the Bolinas Lagoon. Be sure to check back a little later today as we share some of the property’s reception possibilities!
The Peace Barn is a truly bucolic and magical utopia located in the famously reclusive town of Bolinas, just 30 miles up the coast from San Francisco. This stunning, unpretentious space exudes the “live and let live” attitude that Bolinas is known for. Its name derives from both the large peace sign that hangs on the barn – commissioned by the owner on the day the Iraq War was announced – and the sense one gets when walking the idyllic grounds or relaxing in the spacious barn.
The meadows – bordered by cypress and willows and overlooking the Bolinas Lagoon – is a wonderful spot for a quiet ceremony or waterside dining.
Can’t you just picture it? With these mountains as your backdrop, you don’t need much more than touches of loose, organic florals and greenery, a soft, boho dress… and you and your loved ones soaking it all in as you get married beneath the canopy of these huge trees.
There’s nothing more romantic than the idea of an outdoor wedding, and this scenery is relaxed California at its best. This property really does have it all – the options for your reception and cocktail hour are endless… bus your family & friends in, eat dinner beneath the trees, and dance the night away in the barn itself!
Previously a sacred Indian celebration site, Peace Barn is unassuming and rustic, with a distinct bohemian vibe. It’s about a deep respect for nature, an appreciation for slowing down and a love for celebrating life. If you’re the type of person who genuinely connects with that, then you’d be the ideal client to have your celebration here. Sit back and just imagine…
We can’t wait to see your wedding at the Peace Barn!
