Country theme weddings are a popular trend and it's helping breathe life into many withering old barns. Places that once housed livestock and hay can now be found beautifully decorated with tulle and burlap.

Tennessee is home to plenty of these structures in need of an upcycle and quite a few, like those below, have shown the results are absolutely stunning - and the perfect backdrop for tying the knot.
