One of these spaces functions as a game room, providing entertainment for the wedding entourage as well as a chance to mingle.

Meet and hired!
Mark gave us a detailed tour of both venues he owns, but Walker’s stole my heart! The property is designed perfectly to have effortless flow from the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Everything that was included made the price worth every penny. I feel very supported and taken care by this team!Sent on 08/08/2019

The most perfect wedding spot
We just got married at Walker's Overlook on 10.12.19 and it was MORE than we could have hoped for! The farmhouse and the surrounding open fields are absolute perfection and the tented reception space was perfect for our nearly 185 guests to have plenty of room for dinner and dancing while still getting to enjoy a view of the surrounding openness. We fell in love with the entire property the moment we toured it with Mark and ended up booking it later that day! Mark really took the time to completely show us the property and go over everything in detail and was clearly very proud of this beautiful venue (which was often lacking from other venues we had toured). They also provide you with a day-of wedding coordinator which was SUCH a blessing! Kimberly was our coordinator and mapped out an entire wedding day timeline and touched base with all of my vendors ahead of time to make sure everyone knew when and where they needed to be on the wedding day so the day was as organized as possible. I would have never been able to do this myself. She was there with us during the wedding rehearsal the night before to direct everything, she handled most of the set-up on the day of, and was keeping everyone on schedule before the ceremony & during the reception. If you think you don't need a wedding coordinator....trust me you do! And we were so grateful for everything Kimberly did for us to keep the day running smoothly! If there were any problems during the day, I wasn't aware of them. Everyone we worked with at Walker's Overlook was incredible and we are so grateful to everyone for making our day so perfect!Sent on 10/27/2019

A Perfect Choice
Walker's Overlook is a perfect destination for anyone looking for the ideal beautiful, rustic, outdoor wedding. The giant willow tree makes for a picture-perfect ceremony, and the staff working their does just as much to make sure everything goes smoothly. Holly was our day-of coordinator and she was unbelievably helpful. From coordinating with other vendors to arranging our timeline to herding people the day of, we couldn't imagine that day without her. She was accommodating, insightful, and organized. We're so happy with how our big day turned out and highly recommend Walker's Overlook.Sent on 03/15/2020
Charming venue with a delightful staff. Love working here.
I worked as a day-of-coordinated here in June 2013. In addition to loving the beautiful grounds, I was so grateful for the hands-on support of the venue manager and their day-of staff. Not all venues have staff who are willing to go the extra mile to make sure the bride and her family have the day they dreamed of. I was blessed to have their help and will definitely direct future clients and friends here.
