LIGHTING! We need to talk about the importance of light on your day and how it affects the versatility of a space, the options for your photographer and the guest experience.

1. Versatility: The Upchurch not only has light and bright spaces with beautiful window light and white walls that act as a natural reflector, but also amazing and expansive outdoor areas that allow so many spaces to enjoy in an aesthetic setting as well as beautiful lighting to set the mood for your event.

2. Optimal shooting location: Me being a professional photographer for 20 years, paved the way for where the buildings were placed, where plants were planted, the color of the walls and original art as backdrops. Photographers love the spaces because, no matter the time of day for your portraits and ceremony, there’s always plenty of open shade, backlit areas as well as covered porches that provide beautiful lighting opportunities. And can we talk about sunsets???!!!!🌅 We are positioned perfectly for golden hour and sunsets. The Main House and The Magnolia Lawn sit up very high on the property so it aligns perfectly to where the sun sets. It’s great for pictures even if it means stepping away from your reception for 5 minutes to do a miny couple’s session.

3. Guest experience: The lawn is round and it’s completely shaded by the house in the afternoon, so it means that you can situate your guests so that they are not being roasted by the sun and aren’t staring directly into it. I’ve seen it so many times in my career and it’s something that I truly tried to avoid. Not only that, the lighting on the property at night is SOOO magical. Because we’re a historic property, we’re not allowed to use street lamps or any bright lighting so we only use landscape lighting along with pathway lighting that paints the property in a warm and inviting hue. Guests love to meander around the outside of The Conservatory with their cocktails.

What’s been your experience at weddings you’ve attended?

We’ve brought the new year in with a bang! Hannah and I have been focused on planning for big things to come in 2024 & 2025. The “off” season is such a productive time at the venue as we prepare for our spring clients and beyond. 🤩

How’s everyone’s 2024 so far? We’d love to hear from you! 🎊

Last week Hannah and I attended Engage, which is a luxury educational summit for wedding professionals from all over the world. It is meant to inspire, spark creativity, crate new relationships, solidify existing ones and instill the knowledge we thrive on to bring our clients the best experience possible. Engage is truly next level and it’s an investment that I make every few years for myself, my team and our couples. We returned with a renewed sense of purpose and we’re so excited to share that in 2024. Thank you for the time and effort you put into each one of these! This photo from says it all!!

The theme for tonight at Engage Summit is “artsy”. I feel like I’m giving off an artsy super hero vibe. 🤣

You know what’s awesome about a circular lawn? Options!! It allows our couples to have a multitude of directions to host their ceremony. Many of our couples choose a direction with the beautiful pines as their backdrop. Some choose The Conservatory to frame them. So much thought and intention was put into every detail of our spaces. 20 years of photographing weddings tends to train your eye to be extremely detail oriented. 📸😉

We love all of our couples, but there are just folks that you connect with on such a deep level. Whether it’s a shared experience, similar personalities or a kindred spirit, there are people that stick with you forever. I experienced that in my 20 years of shooting weddings(I still get referrals from past clients) and the same relationships continue in venue ownership. Gauri and Stephen were one of those couples for me. I was sooooooo honored to be a part of their day.

SWIPE➡️➡️➡️ to the last photo to see what I passed onto them from my own wedding. 🥂

Wow! We made it through May! We hit some major milestones this month…celebrated our one year anniversary, exceeded our goals for 2023 and had 400% growth from this same time last year. Not to mention, we had fun doing it with the most amazing team and such incredible clients. With one of the busiest months of the year under our belt, we get to take it down a notch while we celebrate with our summer clients, do some makeovers to the property and get ready for a busy fall season!

Say, “Hello!” 👋🏻to one of our fall couples, Marsela and Richard! We are so excited to work with them this November!
