New Beginnings Historic Farm was built by Guilford Nanny, who was known for building the stairs up to Chimney Rock State Park. The farm dates back to the early 1900s and was a historic landmark where people came to buy their meat, milk, and cheese. This venue has now been restored to its original roots as a working farm, bringing communities together.

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!
