Beautiful Venue for a Weekend Getaway Wedding
When looking for a wedding venue, we were searching for not only a gorgeous venue for the ceremony & reception, but a true getaway for us & our guests. We definitely got that with Big Rock Creek! We rented out the property for both Saturday & Sunday night (Labor day weekend wedding) and were able to have everything from rehearsal dinner, to lodging for all family and bridal party on site. It truly felt like a vacation weekend, and not just our wedding.
There were SO MANY great places on the property (which is just under 1,000 acres) for photos. BRC even helped us coordinate a tractor ride up to a beautiful overlook for our bridal party after the ceremony (and supplied enough white claws & beer to get the party started).
There were three ceremony locations to choose from, and the staff was very accommodating in making sure we were able to make our vision a reality - and our ceremony turned out PERFECTLY! Speaking of staff ensuring a great experience, Kelly was a dream to work with. Very hands on (she even rode down on the wagon with my dad & I and fluffed my dress right before I walked down the aisle). Granted they are newer and there were a few hiccups in planning, I also enjoyed the newness because you could tell they were dedicated to making our wedding exactly what we wanted. Everyone on staff was so friendly and went absolutely above and beyond what was asked.
I cannot recommend Big Rock Creek enough for anyone looking for a magical wedding surrounded by nature. I told myself I would NEVER get married in a barn, but when I saw BRC, that quickly changed my mind. Yes, it's a farm and barn property and you could definitely play that up. However, what we fell in love with was the landscape and how we were able to customize our wedding to make it our own.
Will definitely be coming back someday and staying with our future children!Sent on 11/06/2019
