A magical, dreamy weekend wedding!
OH MY GOSH. I can't say enough fantastic things about Timberlake, or about Cyndy.Sent on 06/17/2021
My fiance (now husband?! Aahh) and I have always been nature folks, and we knew that we wanted to get married in a location that really captured this part of our relationship. Timberlake was PHENOMENAL in this regard; located just outside the city (and less than 30 mins from an airport), but it offers complete seclusion. We really felt like we had an entire forest to ourselves for the weekend.
The venue itself - gorgeous. We chose the Woodlands ceremony site, which was everything I could have ever wanted for our sacred ceremony. It's right outside the Treehouse (which the couple gets to stay in for the weekend, if you get the weekend package!), making it perfect for my bridal party to use to get ready before stepping out for the ceremony.
Cyndy and the rest of the team were absolutely incredible. Two facts about me: I micromanage and am a perfectionist with myself, and I can get burnt out pretty quickly because of this. Since my fiance and I had a three year long engagement (thanks, Covid), by the end of that engagement period, while I was excited, I was also pretty done with everything. I still cared about the small stuff, but I didn't have the energy in me to confirm all the small details I would usually have been triple-checking. POINT BEING, I had absolutely no reason to worry about a thing - Cyndy and the team had EVERYTHING covered, venue-wise: on-site parking? check! wedding sign out in front of the venue so drivers knew where to go? check! Golf carts managed? check! Fire pit maintained throughout the night? check! Watching for our shuttle, which wasn't even a responsibility we discussed? check! For someone who typically has every detail discussed and planned out, it was such a relief for me that they had absolutely everything under control with practically no input from me.
This is to say nothing of Cyndy as a person. Cyndy is delightful, incredibly helpful, and one of the most friendly, welcoming people we've ever met. She is also incredibly responsive, and any last-minute questions I might have had regarding the wedding day were answered promptly. I couldn't be happier about having her involved in our wedding.

Timberlake Earth Sanctuary - welcoming and beautiful.
Timberlake is indeed an earth sanctuary, intentionally cared for and offered to guests by its human hosts to those seeking to create a meaningful and lasting experience in a very special environment. Hospitality abounds and is felt with every step you take on this land. From the Woodlands ceremonial space, to the beautifully appointed “Treehouse” nestled in the woods by the lake, to the moss covered trails with resting perches along the way for reflection, conversation, or quiet, the invitation for celebration and communion with family and friends or to make new acquaintances (with other humans, nature or yourself) is palpable. I was recently there for an envisioning and planning gathering held at the new and spectacularly lovely “Barn” and platform tent area of Timberlake “North.” The mindfulness to every detail, warmth (personal and a great fire pit!) and safety (covid distancing and protocols) made for a truly welcoming space for listening, thinking and sharing with others. This is a space I will return to often for celebrations, meetings, workshops and personal reflections, and one that I could not recommend more highly.Sent on 12/30/2020

A place of love.
Timberlake Farm is an extraordinary venue. There is nowhere else on earth where the Beauty of the natural world is a part of every moment you spend there. The hosts are gracious, lovely, and have thought of every detail to make your time there special and filled with beauty. There are meandering paths through the woods where you or your guests can take pause. There is enough space to be together safely and celebrate life and love. My experience there has been the best experience of my life and I highly recommend it.Sent on 12/30/2020
