The year is 2011. An excited and soon to be bride explores an abandoned tobacco barn on her grandparent’s farm. Although the passing of time and changing culture had left the historic structure in much need of repair, it still stood strong in the overgrown meadow.
Exploring the barn she found an inscription carved into the timbers which dated the barn back to 1911. Her wedding dreams were coming full circle and exactly 100 years later the old structure got a new lease on life and hosted it's very first wedding!

I cannot say enough
about Amy and her staff, and their beautiful venue! Wes and I knew instantly that we wanted to get married here! Our wedding day far exceeded our expectations. Leading up to the wedding, Amy was always available to answer all of my questions, no matter how many I had. Then the day before and day of the wedding, she and her crew couldn't have been more laid back and helpful. I loved everything about this place and the people in it!"
