I have always had a passion for weddings! I originally attended college in order to pursue my dream of becoming a wedding planner. I worked as an intern in Dallas for The Wedding Party Studio for the duration of my college career. Making someone’s dream day come true was such an inspiring goal. Like most, I took a turn in my career path and worked in the fashion industry for a while. But, there was a void and I didn’t understand why. My best friend was getting married a few years later and it all came flooding back to me. I missed weddings so much. The thought came to mind about opening my own venue so that I could be around weddings all the time. I am so happy that I followed my heart and took the plunge to make my dream come true so that now, I can help others make theirs come to life.
about the barn
We bought the land in October of 2015. We searched for months and months for the perfect piece of land that was surrounded by trees. It was a raw piece of land that had a small opening where the barn now sits. We started the process of leveling the land; we cleared the area, but didn’t have to take down any trees which was a major plus! We had a wonderful builder and a great team to get the building going. I spent long hours perfecting the plans. I knew just what I wanted and had to work my magic to get it there. The paint was something we put extra effort into to make it the perfect blend of distressed and chic. We spent multiple days looking for lights that highlighted each room and would make each space feel fabulous.
My dad did not understand why I had to have the second floor just for the bridal suite. Our 800 sqft bridal suite is a spacious oasis for our brides and her girls to relax and enjoy the day. Our room is filled with a full-sized mirror which makes for great pictures of the bride getting her dress on, a wall to hang her dress as well as bridesmaids’ dresses, 4 vanities, and a full-sized bathroom with multiple vanities. We even have a window overlooking the indoor ceremony area for the bride to sneak-a-peak. He now understands the upstairs area since every time that we give tours, it’s always a WOW factor from each person as they enter the room. Don’t worry, our groom’s suite was not forgotten about. It is filled with lots of space and many games to keep the guys entertained, as well as a full bathroom just for them!
We also have two bar areas connected to the kitchen. They are located on both sides of our foyer, giving our guests plenty of room to enjoy the day! There is a built-in photo booth area, a large lobby for guests to gather for cocktail hour, and huge courthouse doors that enter into the reception room that we turned into sliding barn doors. The barn has leaded glass from the early 1800s and beams that were brought in from Oregon, and are the perfect touch to the room.
