Meet Andrea! Andrea has been with us for almost 6 years and comes with a pack full of experience in the wedding industry! She was the catering manager for a local restaurant for almost 20 years and has taught us so much from a catering standpoint and is the perfect person to help our brides come up with their perfect menu! She is a worker bee if we have ever seen one and is always going above and beyond for her brides and their families! She is always the first to cry at the end of the night when saying goodbye to her sweet brides and grooms! They become like family. She has 2 favorite parts of the Big Day: The first is at the start when the bride walks into the venue for the first time and seeing her face light up. The second is at the end when the couple share their last dance in an empty room while their guests line up outside fo the exit, "You can just feel how much love they have for one another. It's Priceless!"
Here are a few fun facts about Andrea:
- She is a true Dahlonega "Nugget"; Born and Raised!
- She is the life of the party and is always down for a good time!
- She loves spending time on the lake with her family and friends and has been married to her sweet hubby for 22 years!!

Meet Kirstin! Kirstin is a strong addition to our team and we are thrilled to have her! Kirstin is a graduate from the University of North Georgia with a degree in Marketing, and interned with us before accepting a position on our team! She fell in love with event planning and we fell in love with her! She has such a fun and bubbly personality that our brides instantly connect with. Her hometown is in Cumming, GA, but her favorite place to be is at the beach, and who could blame her? Her favorite part of the wedding day is when all of the guests see the bride coming down the aisle for the first time and you see their faces light up, "it just makes my heart happy!" We are so excited to have Kirstin as a part of our team and can't wait to see what the future holds for her!
Here's a few fun facts about Kirstin:
- She is a dog mom to the sweetest little guy, Fez.
- She is part Swedish if you couldn't tell by her blond hair and blue eyes, and recently visited her family in Sweden!
- She is the definition of a foodie! If she could have any job in the world it would be to drive around in a van trying all different kinds of food from all over the world! In other words, she is happy to go to your tastings with you! ;)

This is an exceptional wedding venue. The staff are both courteous and kind meeting all the needs of the future bride and groom!
The Walters Barn is so beautiful, practical for a small or large wedding, and the Wedding Professionals there are EXTREMELY organized and a delight to work with. So glad to be a part of their network!
The Walters Barn is a gorgeous venue, tucked inside the NorthGeorgia countryside. Beautiful rolling hills surrounding a scenic barn and secluded pond. However, the highlight of the location is hiding behind the doors of the barn. Two large bars, wide open seating for an average-sized wedding. Plus clean kitchen facilities and several overhead fans to help cool a warm summer's eve. We enjoyed our first visit to the Walters Barn, and anxiously await our next joint venture!
