    Absolutely perfect

    New Beginnings was the absolute perfect wedding venue. From start to finish, our experience was so positive and we're so grateful for John and Sheri, and everything they did for us! It was the best weekend and we couldn't have asked for a better experience!

    We found the perfect place!

    Since we were looking for a laid-back, casual venue for our outdoor celebration, many did not fit the criteria. We fell in love with this location and the owners made us feel welcome and that they would make our special day perfect!

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!!
