Why Choose Us?
We like to think that there is a perfect venue for each unique bride and we cannot attempt to be that perfect place for every bride. Here is a short list of what we feel our best assets are (in no particular order):
1. Authentic Barn: Real weathered wood, old trolley barn doors, huge rusted tin doors, converted horse stalls, and hay stacked in the loft…all these contribute to a nostalgic ambiance void of pretentious airs and encourages a laid back mood. We have made additions and improvements but only by keeping that same template. If its not old or original, chances are you can’t tell the difference.
2. Family Farm: A garden full of vegetables in all seasons, blueberry bushes as part of our landscaping, raised beds fulled of herbs, veggies, and flowers, old-fashioned pear trees that produce but show their age, trellising muscadines sprawling in the parking lot, and more…flowers of all sorts in all seasons dotted along pathways, around patios, planted in vintage wheelbarrows and horse troughs…large round haybales lining the fence row, an old tractor parked by the garden, our vintage pre-Civil War farmhouse, milkhouse, goats and horses, and more…We have 3 generations here on the farm where we all contribute in many ways to this family business. This is more than just a piece of business property – it is our home and our heart and soul that we labor for you and share with you. It all creates a very laid back comfortable atmosphere for bride, groom, and guests alike.
3. Trees – Trees – Trees: We love all the varieties of trees here. Our old pear trees still produce but exude character. The big towering pecan tree woos many a bride to her for a ceremony site. Lots of cedar, colorful maples, silver birch, sassafras, black walnut, magnolias, and more…..translates into lots of beauty, color, and SHADE.
4. Attention To Detail: Everywhere you look around the barn, the farm, the Farmhouse, the Guesthouse, the pathways….you see our thumbprint. Often subtle, sometimes bold, always purposeful, regularly repurposed….you see where we are making sure that we make it a wonderland for your photographer. Much of what you see if God’s own handy-work but we try accent it. Our photographers notice and take advantage of it and you will indeed see them in your amazing photographs.
5. Amenities: We have already transformed the barn and grounds – elevated the level of your event which takes the pressures off of what all you have to do to plan your wedding. Because of all of the attention to detail, the lights and doily banner already hung, curtains draped, bottle wall created, interesting lights hung everywhere….it already looks ready for a gala. We not only include tables and chairs but have so many unique furniture pieces for your uses as well like a cast iron tub for drinks, a hay wagon for a sign-in table or dessert smorgasbord, vintage and hand-crafted tables, and more. Having on-site temperature controlled prep spaces for both bride and groom are vital. Having optional extra spaces like the Guest House on-site can be a solution to many issues. We have an air-conditioned Dance Hall where you can boogie in comfort.
6. Choices: Oh, do we have the choices; pricing options, ceremony site choices, layout design unique to your wedding, vendor choice, and extra rental options. All of these choices are designed to help you make this wedding your own and created around your vision – your resources – your needs and desires – and your budget. (See below for more information on our Add-On options.)
