Welcome welcome welcome to our lovely historic southern estate filled with nature, rustic charm, soft lights and a lot of love.

There is so much more to share than what pictures and words can tell. Until we have the privilege to meet you here in person, this will have to do for now.

Let’s start with what you see first when you come to visit. It’s the front of our lovely 7,000 sq ft historic home. The brick walk way pictured below are actually the originally bricks from when this home was first built. So make sure to watch your steps when walking up to the door, because these bricks are old old. Our front porch is complete with tall white pillars, rocking chairs, door wreaths that are constantly changing, plants that we put out according to the season, beautiful windows, double wide doors and beautifully exposed bricks.

The Magnolia Tree

One of the view points of our front church is our infamous magnolia tree. This massive tree brings more than shade, it brings the romance. Once the sun starts to go down, the soft amber market lights turn on, which gives you that whimsical and romantic vibe.

Ancient Oak Tree

Ancient Oak Tree

Out back, we have an ancient oak tree that is believed to be about 500 years old. It blooms so beautifully in the summer and fall months. It’s such a lovely spot for sweetheart photos. And every now and then, couples choose this ancient oak tree for their ceremony location.

Prayer Garden

Right next to the oak tree, is our Prayer Garden. Complete with a steeple, the prayer garden is set up for a peaceful walk through and makes a beautiful backdrop for photos.

The Carriage House Pavilion

This is where your dinner reception takes place. It is decorated in market lighting and equipped with ceiling fans just in case you get a little warm. And don’t worry, if it gets cold, we have heat lamps. The pavilion is surrounded by a view of nature. So pretty!

The Barn

Where everyone gets their groove on, grabs a drink from the bar located inside the Silo or takes a powder room break. The barn is also where our catering kitchen is, so you know the food is coming out fresh and hot! And can we say, more lights!

Cake Table

The cake table is placed in the corner of the barn. It just looks so magical with the bed of lights hovering up above, and with oil lights and baby breath filled frosted mason jars hanging down.

The Silo (Inside)

The Silo is always a crowd pleaser. Aside from looking really awesome, it’s where the bar is located. A couple of it’s cool features are the overhead lit up jars and all of the chalk writing on the walls. In fact, we leave a bucket of colored chalk in the silo for our couples to sign their names on the silo wall. It’s a neat way of leaving their name in a piece of history.

The Silo (Outside)

Outside of the Silo, is a great spot for some romantic pictures.

Fire Pit

And just a few steps away, we have our outdoor fire pit. There is no better way to really feel the authenticity of being outdoors in nature. Adding this special feature to your wedding, rehearsal dinner or overnight stay is an option that can be added. We can also include s’mores to make it extra fun!

Charming White Gazebo

Charming White Gazebo

Consider the White Gazebo as your grand entrance to your ceremony. You and your wedding party will walk through  the gazebo should you decide to have your ceremony in the pecan grove. We also hold intimate ceremonies, such as elopements, at the this gazebo

The Wooden Arbor

Our most popular ceremony site is at the Wooden Arbor right in the middle of the pecan grove. What a perfect location for wonderful lighting with a great combination of sunlight and shade. The wooden arbor looks beautiful just the way it is, but can be dressed up with fabric and flowers to suit your specific style.

Pecan Grove

Aside from the wooden arbor in the pecan grove, weddings can take place at your favorite hundred year old tree and you can decorate it how you wish.

The Potting Shed

It doesn’t get anymore rustic than this! The Potting Shed is such a gem and adds to the beauty and history of this cherished place.

The Chick Inn

The Chick Inn

Well who doesn’t love chickens? We have a special place for our chickens to enjoy their life and do what they were created to do, lay some fresh healthy eggs. They are very people friendly. So you may catch them roaming the property and you are more than welcome to say hello. But don’t worry, they go back into their Inn before your wedding begins.

The Orchard

We have an orchard in our back yard that yields chest nuts. We have a walk through garden, which will soon be receiving a make over that will fill the space with a beautiful assortment of planted florals. We have an actual out house that was used once upon a time and more!

Of course, we have the indoors to still share with you as well. We will show you a glimpse with a few pictures, but will give you the grand tour when you come to see us. And we hope that will be soon!

Our kitchen is a fan favorite! We usually end our tours in this room as we go over any specific questions you have about your wedding details over coffee, tea, or maybe some champagne. After all, your engagement calls for a celebration!

the estate

The majority of the home is decorated in 18th and 19th century fashion and antiques. You definitely get the vintage vibe with our place.
