We’re practicing social distancing during the COVID-19 shutdown, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take a look around our venue! We are offering virtual tours with a phone consultation until we can all be out and about again. To schedule an appointment, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What Your Virtual Tour Includes
We will send over a drive of videos of every part of our venue and then set up a time for you to speak with one of our onsite planners to talk through all aspects of the venue and food and beverage offerings.
A Little About the Venue
Our venue boasts two suites for the wedding party and their family to enjoy. The Mint Julep provides ample space for dressing areas, as well as hair and makeup for the bridal party, while the Tack Room offers the gentlemen a sophisticated, Southern lounge. Additional living spaces welcome family to relax before the festivities begin.
The Barn features large, open spaces with exposed beams and meticulously chosen finishes. The sophistication, Southern-style and historic charm shine through when you walk in the door.
The venue creates a grand atmosphere with 32-foot vaulted ceilings and ten 48-inch round chandeliers. The majestic structure expands across the length of the property, overlooking 11.5 acres of manicured pastures. The layout allows for multiple options for both the ceremony and reception and is a canvas waiting to be customized for your special day.
