Frequently Asked Questions
Can I drop by for a tour?
Due to the property being a privately owned residence, site visits/tours by any parties must be scheduled via phone or email to email@example.com to coordinate any visits at a convenient time for both the venue and visitors. As we welcome you in our home, we hope you will make joyous lasting memories and ask you to treat it like your own backyard.
Is there free parking?
Yes, ample designated parking is available on site.
How large is the space and is it all outdoors?
The venue serves solely as an outdoor space to host your intimate day. Please note, the venue will not be providing indoor space or restroom access (we recommend renting an on-site portable restroom). The grounds cover 54 acres of land with 1.2 acre lake as well as both plenty of wooded and open field area. The Woodlands (1 acre) is the only area we are allowing weddings to take place at this time. With plenty of key spots for photo opportunities and to assure you make the most of your time during your visit, you will need to arrive on time or up to 15 minutes early to avoid much walking to find your desired spot for photos. We are also here to make location recommendations based on your vision for the day. Just ask! For access to other areas such as the lake and waterfall, please schedule a time with us for a private photo session with your photographer of choice.
What kind of wildlife might I spot during my visit?
The grounds are home to a flourishing wildlife scene. From the white-tailed deer to Great Egrets and Blue Herons and even the ocassional Turkey sighting. Our lake is brimming with Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, Crappie and a few Catfish. You never know what visitors may stop by to say hello!

What if it rains on my big day?
