    Our Dream Wedding

    Everything about Front Porch Farms was magical from the get-go!
    We fell in love with the property upon our first arrival, and didn't even feel the need to look any further for our perfect place to get married. The views from the front yard, where we held our ceremony, are breathtaking no matter which way you look. Kathy Best's (owner, wedding planner extraordinaire) home is out of a story book, and the backyard pavilion, pool, cocktail bar, etc had everything we wanted and more for our reception. We were sold on location and setting alone - but Kathy made the entire wedding planning process a breeze, which kept it enjoyable all the way. She had a bride, a mother of the bride, AND a mother of the groom to deal with and did it all with a smile on her face! Ha. Day of, her entire team made everything seamless. The decor was absolutely stunning - no detail was missed. Don't even get me started on my flowers, y'all! Nobody could believe how unbelievable the bouquets were. My husband and I worried about NOTHING, enjoyed our special day to the FULLEST, and we now get to look back on the most beautiful pictures of the most beautiful wedding in the most beautiful place. 10/10 would recommend Kathy and Front Porch Farms to anyone!
