I have had the pleasure to shoot two weddings at this wonderful venue and do some Christmas Mini Sessions. The owners, Sheri & John Crenshaw are absolutely a joy to work with, so kind, friendly and helpful. Their home is beautiful inside and outside and the venue is perfect for your outdoor wedding along with a huge covered reception area with plenty of space for dining, dancing and cake cutting. I would highly recommend this venue to any of my bride and grooms and I can't wait to photograph an event there again soon!!
A beautiful landscape not too far from Lake Lure, the owners are especially invested in making sure your wedding is a special one, they go above and beyond to take care of everyone that attends, and I highly recommend them as a top notch, rustic yet elegant, venue of choice!
