There aren't enough words to describe how wonderful our wedding experience at Timberlake was. Our family and friends are still talking about it weeks after the wedding! Carolyn and her team went above and beyond to make sure we had the perfect wedding day. They were always on top of everything and work so hard to make sure you have nothing to worry about the day of. They take care of as much as they can to lessen your stress and worries. Carolyn treated us and our family and friends as if we were her own. She is literally the sweetest person you will ever meet. You can't help but to feel like you have always known her your whole life. She is such a gracious host, and is genuinely excited to share her land with those who will appreciate and respect it. Timberlake is so beautiful, peaceful, but most of all- magical. The Tree House is so cozy and inviting, and has 360° views of the enchanting woods around you. We would live there if we could! You will not be disappointed in the slightest bit if you decide to have your wedding here. There is so much potential to have the magical wedding day of your dreams. The property alone is beautiful enough! My husband and I were so lucky to find Timberlake when we did, as only a limited number of weddings are allowed each year in order to best preserve the property. Don't miss your chance!Sent on 10/08/2016

Our dream woodland wedding
Timberlake Earth Sanctuary was absolutely amazing! We booked a year and a half in advance since we knew how special this venue was. Jess and Cynthia were so helpful and knowledgable about wedding day logistics. We chose the full weekend option and were able to hold the bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception on site. If you want and outdoor/ woodsy wedding look no further!Sent on 06/03/2019
