Feel the softness of hay as you stroll by azalea bushes, pecan and magnolia trees. The whistle of trains, the songs of cardinals and the rustling of cedar branches are carried by the breeze through the barn. The sweet scent of magnolia blossoms and azalea bushes, along with the natural beauty of Southeast Georgia's lush landscape will surely enhance your countryside experience.
Daughter's Barn offers a unique destination for all your wedding and event needs nestled in the heart of the charming train town of Folkston, Georgia. The hand-constructed 3200 square ft rustic barn finds its home on nine manicured acres in Southeast Georgia. Along with the barn you get 21 9ft farm tables and benches. We are a DIY barn or we can do it ALL for you too. For a number of years, Folkston residents called the city the "Marriage Capital of the World." The town embraced this nickname because Floridians, who could not endure their state's waiting period before tying the knot, would cross the state line to wed.
Folkston is located just a few miles west of Interstate 95 and only 45 minutes from the beach. We are 4 miles over the FL/GA line outside of Jacksonville. It is also a few minutes from the entrance to the world-renowned Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, a destination for nature lovers and kayakers for its beautiful flowers, moss covered cypress trees and wet prairies.

Magic in a small town
I stumbled upon Daughters Barn shortly after my fiancé and I were engaged. I had a tight budget and thought the romantic barn vision was nearly out of the question, until a friend of mine mentioned a new wedding venue in her hometown. I immediately googled the venue, read through the story behind the barn (which pulled at my heart strings for sure), and called Wendy on my lunch break. The next morning, after a 12-hour shift, my fiancé and I were on our way to GA from Jacksonville before 7am.
As soon as Wendy met us out in front of the barn doors, any hesitation we felt was gone. We were sold in a few minutes. Wendy’s outgoing and caring personality shines through in all she does. She goes above and beyond to answer any question and reach out to countless contacts to make sure your special day (and the process leading up to it) is as smooth and stress free as possible. Wendy and her family have taken a forgotten small plot of land and created magic with Daughters Barn.
The venue is the perfect sight for romantic country chic weddings: twinkle lights everywhere, rustic seating, handmade wooden tables and benches, and plenty of room for outdoor games and ceremony space. I appreciated Wendy’s straightforward wedding packages and pricing as well her flexibility and recommendations when it comes to vendors. Her professionalism and responsiveness is on point.
Julie, the day of coordinator, is another angel of Daughters Barn. I gave Julie my vendor list and rough timeline a few weeks before my wedding. I started grad school a few months before that and fell into a very tough week of demanding assignments, exams, ect before the wedding. The weeks leading up to the big day are by far the most stressful. Julie was there to find solutions and coordinate with vendors when I did not have the brainpower or emotional stamina to do so. Julie made it possible for me to put my phone away the day before and the day of my wedding so I could fully find myself present in those moments.
Looking back four days later, it was a whirlwind for sure. I could not have asked for a more perfectly fitting and magical day. I miss that barn and family and community behind it. I will forever hold Daughters Barn in my heart.
If you are bride looking for the magic of a small town and rustic barn tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, Daughter’s Barn is your venue! Wendy and the whole crew have everything you need (or know someone who does) to make your vision a reality!

The Daughter’s Barn is beautiful, everything I dreamed of for our wedding. Even though it rained and all the plans was changed.. we was the first to be married inside the barn.. It was still beautiful.. Wendy you are amazing and went over and beyond to make sure everything was in place...
I had the pleasure of doing florals for a wedding at Daughter's Barn during winter and have since visited the barn during the summer. Each season created a completely different environment, but both so breathtaking. The property is beautiful, lush and open. It's charm and simplicity provide a perfect foundation to make any wedding or event unique and personal. The owners, Wendy and Armando, were such a pleasure to work with! They were so accommodating, happy and flexible! Their biggest focus was ensuring that everyone was having a great time and the wedding was truly representative of the couple's vision. I was able to work in the barn and set everything up before the event, which was incredibly helpful. Both Wendy and Armando came to check on me periodically and offer assistance (and snacks) several times. I highly recommend this venue to every bride (or vendor) who wants a truly personal and unique experience from start to finish!
