Incredible Wedding Experience

My husband and I had the wedding of our dreams here! Up the Creek Farms did a phenomenal job making the wedding planning process simple for us, and exceeded our expectations with the design, planning, and execution of our wedding. We could not be more appreciative of the awesome team that brings these magical days in our lives to fruition. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and the team is even better - you can tell each person has a true passion for what they do, which makes the process even more enjoyable. I was extremely impressed in how detail-oriented everyone was, and how they were able to make this day even more special that it already was. I would highly recommend this venue for the perfectly curated wedding of your dreams!

Wedding Venue

Up The Creek exceeded all of our expectations. They made the planning process seamless and as stress free as possible. They were always available to answer questions and give advice on the few vendors that were not included in their package. From invitations, catering, bartenders, DJ, decor and florals - everything they included was perfect. They were so easy to work with and organized all of the planning meetings around our crazy schedules. Every single part of our special day was perfect. The team took care of all of the details to make sure we were able to enjoy the day. They even packed our decorations in the car before the end of the night so we didn鈥檛 have to worry about clean up! Our guests had nothing but great things to say about the service and the venue. Up The Creek was the first and only venue we toured and we are so happy that we went with our gut feeling and picked them.

What a Venue!!!! Style, Beauty, Comfort, Professionalism and Flare, Up the Creek Farms is the quintessential event venue. The charm, grace and respect that Jessica and Tim exudes are above all the rest. From the first visit, with the Bride, until after the reception, I felt as if I had been creating events at Up the Creek Farms forever.

I look forward to recommending Up the Creek Farms, Jessica and Tim and the Live Oak Trees dripping in Spanish Moss to many, many clients. Best of wishes to them and their future!!
