Did you know that we include an engagement or bridal portrait session for all of our Walnut Hill couples? I love when couples utilize this time. It’s a perfect way to explore the property and get creative with photos that you may not be able to take on your wedding day! I mean how stunning is our bride ?! Walnut Hill has 20 acres dedicated just for events making your photo opportunities endless!

Well it looks like we all escaped the worst of the weather this time, but we’re sending love to all those who didn’t get so lucky. I’m sure a passing hurricane made a few couples this weekend nervous. Could you imagine a wedding during a hurricane? Well how about FOUR days of wedding festivities?! That’s exactly what we encountered last year. But thanks to a rock star vendor team, an always positive wedding party, and our very large generate the celebration never stopped for Shaoleen and Colin!

This post is brought to you by special request! Apparently I have zero pictures of the sugar shack anywhere on our instagram or website. *oopsies* so what is the sugar shack? It’s this cute little hut right by our main white barn and the name was coined by a father of the bride many years ago and it just stuck! So what can you DO with it? Well you can make one epic bar like this, place your welcome and gift table under it, greet guests with a glass of champagne or signature cocktail here, and even have a cigar bar! It’s a perfect little extra space! Also look at our cute new cocktail hour chairs 😍

I love when couples do a first look together! It always makes the day more relaxing and enjoyable for them. Jon and Maryn had so much time together on their wedding day to explore the property so they could get stunning couples portrait! They even got to have fun inside the reception space and have this beautiful little set up captured!

There’s a common saying amongst my friends “everyone needs a Scott” I absolutely could not agree more. From doing the kids laundry, scheduling doctor appointments, letting me CONSTANTLY sleep in, and researching all the fun activities for the kids he is a better dad and partner than I ever could have dreamed up. He is the foundation of our little family and everyday I love him more. Happy Happy Father’s Day

For Mother’s Day this year my two little ones brought me home a bird feeder, flowers and Norovirus! So I will be spending my time in bed while my husband takes care of the children, but it’s definitely not as relaxing as I had hoped… good thing those kids are cute right?! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday and drink an extra mimosa for me please! I’ll be going back to bed…

Are we reviewing our couples yet? Because Jordan and Blair are 10/10! I had the absolute honor of hanging out with these two all weekend while celebrating their wedding with friends and family. From their rehearsal dinner (small monsoon included) to their welcome party, wedding day, and farewell brunch. It was a weekend I will never forget! I love a groom that continually lectures me to stop working and go eat!

If you’ve been on a tour with me you know that I LOVE a first look and that I usually give advice to new couples on why I think it makes for a more enjoyable wedding day. But my love of the soon to be newlyweds first look has just been surpassed!!! Everyone and I do mean everyone needs to do a first look with the other wedding party! I mean look at this! COME ON!!!!

Hey everyone, it’s been a while since I really posted here. So here’s a bit of a vulnerability post. I always ran this account with my authentic voice. Sometimes sarcastic, oversharing, but always honest. Truth is I’m struggling. I know this is a wedding account and I am a wedding venue owner so you usually see me smiling and happy. But anxiety and depression have always been close companions of mine. I don’t say this for sympathy. As my best friends know asking for help or showing my vulnerability is my worst nightmare. (Need a light wired? I can do it myself! Furniture moved? I got it!) I say this because I might need an extra minute. I’m not working at my full capacity. I don’t feel like me right now. I’ll get back to her it’s just going to take a little time. Should I post this on my business account? Maybe not. But I’ve always been honest and transparent so I won’t be any different now. And if you’ve ever had times like this and even if you have them during your wedding planning it’s ok! We’ll get back to us! One breathe at a time.

I saw this trend going around so I decided to make my own list of what’s in and what’s out. Hopefully so don’t ruffle too many feathers with my opinions. Look I love a good post about upcoming trends! They are fun and great for getting inspiration. I don’t love these what’s out lists though! The planning process is fun, but hard. So why rain on someone’s wedding day by telling them their favorite flower is out? That’s not happening here y’all! So tell me what are you most excited about for you wedding day coming up?!

Well we have officially closed the door on 2022 and walked into 2023! (See what I did there 😉) I’ve never been a big fan of new year’s resolutions. I tend to give myself lofty goals and then life gets in the way and that promise of making all our food from scratch goes right out the window along with whatever aesthetically pleasing kitchen tools I needed to make it happen. Well this year I’ve given myself 2 things I’d like to do more of in the coming year with no strict rules or times per week attached 1. Do yoga (because I have toddlers and own a venue and everything hurts now!) 2. Reconnect with more of my vendor friends in person not just through a computer or phone! What about you? What do you hope 2023 looks like?

Only 5 more sleeps until Christmas!!! Are you ready?! For once I’m not scrambling to order gifts and praying that Amazon prime delivers in time for Santa! A few more gifts need wrapping and amongst all the fun my wild and crazy girl smashed her face into a table and got to her eyelid super glue back together. Christmas photos will feature a mini boxing champ this year! But she’ll still look really cute in that new ballet outfit sitting under the tree! I hope you enjoy the next few days with family and friends and it’s injury free!

I woke up this morning and it was a quick nope to leaving the house for anything with this gloomy weather. No one likes rain; especially on their wedding day. But it happens, so it’s important you have a venue that can not only hold your ceremony and reception but gives you gorgeous photo options! I don’t know about you but I think we do ok 😉

I love all the rich colors and textures our couples have been incorporating into their design as the weather turns cooler.

I know it’s a bit controversial for some but I am firmly on team first look! Asking a first look is so special and gives you time alone with your soon to be spouse. And you have ample time to get all your portraits and photos done (allowing you to have fun exploring our 15 acre property!) Then after the ceremony you get to actually enjoy your cocktail hour! Win win win!

One day I noticed a new account following me. I run all our social media and probably check it more often than I should, so I immediately noticed and went to check it out. It was this very very cool illustrator who made uplifting and body positive messages. So I immediately followed back. Over the next few months I would often go check this account when I needed a little cheering up. Then I was doing a tour with the cutest couple. The bride wanted a Taylor Swift inspired wedding (ummm sign me up!!!) she looked so familiar but I couldn’t figure out why. Well a few days later I was scrolling my insta stories and who should pop up as the creator of my favorite little illustrations? My new bride! I don’t think I ever even told her how much her work meant to me and how much she cheered me up on hard days all through a little screen. Social media can be powerful. Both in the good and the bad. I’m so happy that it brought me to her though and we got to be part of her absolutely dreamy day! Here is a little peak at some of the amazing work she created for her own day! You’ll see a lot more of this wedding soon!!!
