Real Wedding: Kiri + Adam’s Peace Barn Wedding

I discovered the Peace Barn in Bolinas, Ca online a few months ago and I’ve been dying to feature a wedding there. And then yesterday one of my favorite photographers, Jill Thomas, sent me the sweetest wedding held there. This wedding is really my type of wedding: a barn, great style, yummy food, and a bonfire at the end of the evening! Thanks so much Jill for sharing this wedding with us and congrats to Kiri + Adam.

From Jill, “the wedding took place in bolinas, ca just north of san francisco. kiri + adam are classy, beautiful couple that are fun and completely laid back. they wanted a intimate wedding where they were surrounded by their friends and family. they got married at the “peace barn”. bolinas is a small hippy town and the venue fit them perfectly. warm, friendly, natural, and organic. the ceremony was down passed the barn on the wharf. they provided flip flops for all the guest to use to walk out to the wharf. kiri did all the planning and details herself. the day was amazing and purely perfect.

  2. I can't find a website for the Peace Barn anywhere! If some one knows what their site is PLEASE let me know!

  3. a teepee?! a peace sign!? an after-wedding kick-back around the fire?! this wedding RAWKS.

  4. In case i lose 100 lbs in the next 6 months, any ideas where the dress came from? :)

  5. Hi Brit. Jill and I are trying to find more information on the Peace Barn. The couple are on their honeymoon until the end of the week, but once they are back, I will hopefully have more info. For now, I have an address: 60 Olema – Bolinas rd, bolinas ca. I know weird that there is no website. I searched for an hour last night looking!

    In my tennis shoes – Her dress was bought second hand! I don't know the designer yet, but check back next week, once I hear from Kiri I will post here.

    thanks everyone!

  6. Bolinas is probably my favorite place in this country. Thank you for posting a wedding hosted in the amazing spot!

  11. a barn and a teepee, pure heaven for me. thanks jen for sharing.

  12. I was so excited to see this wedding! Kiri is wearing a Poppy hairpiece from my shop!

  13. I went to a birthday party at this place years ago – parking across the road in a dirt lot, the peace sign… it was a wild, hippie birthday. I am glad to see they still rent out the place – a BEAUTIFUL looking wedding – you can see the warmth in all of the photos! I ADORE this area ;)

  14. Liking the "flip flops for the road!" Too cute. Beautiful shoot.

  15. Any updates on how to get in touch with the owners of this site? I absolutly love it! Thanks!

  16. I have been searching for ways to get in touch with the owners of the venue – even contacted the local Chamber of Commerce – and haven't been able to find a way. If someone knows, please post some information. The location we were going to choose burned down this week. :(

  17. Hello~

    I too have fallen for this place and was wondering how to get a hold of the owners. I'm interested in possibly holding a wedding at this venue.
    Thanks in advance!

  18. To all those who want to know more about the Peace Barn, I have some news – but not great news. Turns out the owners don't rent it out anymore, the couple getting married in this post were close friends of the owners, so they let them get married here, but unfortunately it is not available to rent out. Such a bummer! I'll work on finding some other venues similar to post about!

  19. Where is the brides dress from? I LOVE it. Please let me know.

  20. I have been looking for this place for months!!! Has there been any other places like it?? I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this place! I’m SO bummed they don’t rent it out anymore!

  21. Did anyone ever find out who designed the gown? I have been admiring it for the last year and just got engaged yesterday, so now I REALLY want to know :) Thanks! Beautiful wedding!
