We are a husband & wife team and blessed to be the very first wedding here... after meeting on match.com! Our wedding greatly inspired us to help others have a unique place for their wedding. Our private estate wedding venue is located on our personal property of 110 acres in Ashville, Alabama.
Its lush land created by God that is beautiful with a lake, huge oak trees, a chunky beam pavilion, a gazebo jetting out onto the water, a heated and cooled restroom building called our “tin cottage” with an awesome deck. Also in our tin cottage is a bridal party “holding room”. (That's where we hide our bride before she comes out to walk down the aisle)
Where do our Brides get ready?
In a separate house away from the venue but on the property! It was recently remodeled on the inside to be all white with dark brown stained real wood floors and the style is more “farmhouse” on the inside.
We also live onsite and invest lots of time in our land and the planning of each wedding as we want the day to be full of joy, no stress and for everybody involved to not be caught up in the many details of a wedding. We take care of all the day of details!
All our weddings are where NO moms, family and / or friends have to setup seating or the decor, etc. We have seen both sides of weddings and believe us and others who have experienced stressful weddings......there is a big difference!
As experienced day of wedding planners, we sit down with you to plan the day of wedding details and all that is involved down to table decor styling, ceremony site styling, day of timelines, vendor selections we include, we style and design beautiful reception tables from our huge stock of over 5000 individual decor items! As planners, all the weddings here at our private estate wedding venue are overseen and coordinated by us along with us handling the directing of the wedding.
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY weddings get fireworks included for free! Very few venues are experienced at this or even allow them. We have shot over 4000 fireworks mortars and know how to help capture epic shots like you see on our website and on Facebook and Instagram.
Our true all inclusive weddings in the Spring & Fall are packaged as weddings and not just getting a place for a wedding to take place! Thats a BIG difference. We are told all the time by couples searching around that we are the only full service venue that includes all the services and things we do.
The weddings here are bundled and include:
Our day of wedding planning services (Three of us here are Certified Wedding Planners)
Your wedding will be coordinated and directed by us. (no need to hire a planner, coordinator and decorator costing from $1200 to $2400)
Full catering with super delicious buffet selections (Weekday and Sundays include light food)
a custom wedding cake,
custom styled table decor from our collection,
ceremony decor / props,
...and our planning meeting includes a cake tasting! Yum!
When it comes down what typical venues do for a wedding day, all this included is huge! So it really comes down to how much stress and risks do you want to take on your most special wedding day? Our couples describe us as a stress free, organized and easy to work with.
These special date all inclusive weddings cost between $5,800 to $13,800 depending on the day of the week, size of wedding party included and the number of guests included, etc. (additional tax and refundable damage / contract security retainer is extra).
Want to visit? We don't offer "tours" like most venues, we offer something more. Our visits to our property are all personally planned and decorated....it's a very personalized experience! We start by providing examples of styles and information to you and then setting up a phone consultation where we talk over your dreams, your style of décor and how we might be a fit for you. All of this helps save time and helps us be better prepared for your special visit here. If you are interested in hearing more... please fill out our contact form and let's talk.

After having their wedding on the property in 2010, Sheila and Jeff decided they wanted to share this beautiful location with other brides for their weddings.
