Winter Wedding At Kettering Ohio’s Best Barn-Themed Wedding Venue

Just before Christmas 2022, I photographed this thoughtful couple’s wedding at Polen Farm in Kettering, Ohio. It had been a few years since I shot a Polen Farm wedding, so I was happy to be back. Once every two or three years I photograph a November or December wedding. While these are always fun, this one was different. Whatever comes my way, this is always Kettering Ohio’s best barn-themed wedding venue.

The wedding couple was a little older than most and wanted a few getting-ready photos. In addition, I didn’t meet them ahead of time. We had a phone or Zoom meeting to discuss things, but the wedding day was our first meeting. The bride’s sister was the point of contact for the day and did a fantastic job. She could be a professional wedding planner if she wanted.

This couple was having a pre-Christmas wedding that had to include Santa Claus, of course. Santa and Mrs. also had presents for the kids. The barn is weather-sealed and was warm enough to not wear a coat. The upstairs held tables and a dance floor while the ground floor served as the catering location. Because this is a wooden structure, certain things are not allowed such as sparklers.

Why Is This Kettering Ohio’s Best Barn-Themed Wedding Venue?

One more thing I forgot to mention. The giant movable barn door facing the east is great on warmer days. During this cold wedding, the door stayed closed except during the first look.

It was a great day for everyone, and a great day to end the 2022 wedding season as a Dayton photographer.
