    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!

    To say my husband and I feel privileged to be a part of the Timberlake family is an understatement. Our big day was absolutely perfect in ever way. Timberlake is a magical, woodsy venue. Knowing that you get the entire venue from Friday at noon until Sunday at noon was such a relief. The majority of our guests were coming from out of town for our big day so we decided to have an open rehearsal dinner and invite whoever would be in town at that time. We ended up having 50 out of our 80 guests attend our dinner Friday night. We did a catered hotdogs and burgers meal under the tent and it was absolutely perfect. The extra time we got to spend with our family and friends the day before our wedding is one of our favorite aspects of our wedding weekend. Our wedding night was that much more relaxing knowing that we or our family members didn't have to stay up for hours cleaning up. It was even nicer than I thought it would be knowing we could leave everything sit out Saturday night and come back in the morning to clean everything up.

    The owner, Carolyn, is a beautiful soul who truly cares about the land. Their grounds keeper, Roy, was amazing. It rained the entire morning of our wedding. He knew how much we wanted to have our ceremony in the Woodlands so he put extra mulch down along the walkways to help. It finally stopped raining a few hours before our ceremony so we never had the tent walls put up. Well, our luck would have it that it started to down pour the moment my husband and I were making our grand entrance at our reception. Roy jumped right in putting the walls up! It only rained for about an hour and the forecast looked clear for the rest of the night. When we decided to move the dancing back outside, Roy was right there taking the walls back down for us and even started the fire for us! He was more than we could have ever asked for.

    Thank you Timberlake Earth Sanctuary!

    Timberlake is truly magical. My husband and I found Timberlake through wedding wire. From the start, Carolyn and her team were responsive and professional. They really helped the day run smoothly, offering logistic support, on site transportation and much more. It was amazing to know that having our wedding there also helped with sustaining the land for Carolyn. I loved Timberlake because in the hustle and bustle of a wedding weekend, we were at such peace on this beautiful expanse of land. My photos were incredible, my guests were awe-struck by the beauty and serenity. For everything you get, the price is unbeatable as well. I can't say enough good things about Timberlake. I wish I could be there all the time, walking the property and hanging out with Carolyn <3

    Timberlake Earth Sanctuary was the absolute ideal place to have our wedding. It was beyond magical. There was absolutely no stress, Carolyn and her team made us feel at home from the start. It is such a unique, wonderful place and I recommend this venue highly.

    Beautiful woodsy Venue hidden in Triad area. Large venue with multiple ceremony locations. From an orchard to a pond, woods, garden, and small chapel. Accommodating to very intimate weddings as well as to large scale. Provided a great deal of assistance. Carolyn and the Timberlake Earth Sanctuary staff from the very start were extremely helpful, kind! The Groomsmen were delighted getting ready in a barn setting and the bridesmaids loved the tree house! Our reception area was a short walk from our ceremony and was a real crowd pleaser. Already had a permanent tent there no need to rent one. Wonderful fire pit that was the hit of the evening with our s'mores bar, and large dancing floor! Can't thank the staff enough for the fantastic job they did,

    I couldn't have imagined a more perfect wedding day. Everything was unbelievably gorgeous and magical. The whole wedding weekend went smoothly. We have Timberlake to thank for that. From the very beginning, Carolyn was so quick to answer any questions I had and went out of her way to fulfill any request. We really felt taken care of, and it was clear that our wedding was a special event for them as well. Aside from the five star service, the land at Timberlake Earth Sanctuary is so beautiful. We immediately felt a bond with this place. Our guests also really enjoyed Timberlake, they couldn't stop gushing over it. Timberlake and Carolyn will continue to be a part of our family for years to come.

    Timberlake Earth Sanctuary will always hold a very special in heart! You feel such serenity and love as soon as you cross the gate. Carolyn, Roy, and Emily are so kind and helpful and are sincerely excited to be a part of your special day. Timberlake will be a place we continue to visit for many years to come. It is a very special place.

    We had an outdoor wedding at Timberlake and it was perfect in every way. Timberlake is such a peaceful and magical place - just perfect for a wedding celebration. The tented reception area is right next to a potential ceremony site so it is easy for guests to move from one to the other. We had 120 guests and there was plenty of space for everyone, even when almost everyone was out on the dance floor! We have received countless compliments from our friends and family about how wonderful our wedding was and we attribute a large part of that to the beautiful venue that we were fortunate enough to find at Timberlake. We highly recommend Timberlake if you are looking for a place to have an outdoor wedding venue! Be sure to spend some time before and/or after enjoying the entire Timberlake property as well.

    I have been to Timberlake a time or two for other wedding events and knew right away what a magical place it is. My fiance felt the same way when we took the tour with Carolyn. We had a small wedding and chose to use the Treehouse area for both our ceremony and reception. We simply couldn't have asked for anything more. A simple rustic wedding held in the middle of an earth sanctuary.....perfection. Carolyn was an absolute gem to work with and really made us feel like part of her family. We cannot wait to go back for weekend getaways and anniversaries.

    The Timberlake staff was great. They made sure that the grounds were perfect for our day. It poured on our actual wedding day but they made sure everything ran smoothly. The grounds are a peaceful amazing space for an outdoor wedding.

    What I loved most was that we had the venue from Friday noon to Sunday noon so I never felt under any time constraints. Because the property is so huge, it was our rehearsal dinner location, our ceremony location, our reception location, and our bridal suite for the weekend. Everything was absolutely perfect, I highly recommend Timberlake Earth Sanctuary to anyone!

    We visited many different venues and considered a lot of different options for where we might have our wedding, but we were clear that Timberlake Earth Sanctuary was the place we would get married the day we visited the land and met Carolyn Toben. The longstanding affection and care that she and her family have shown to that place helped ground our own celebrations and extended into the care that she shows for all of those choosing to celebrate their commitment and love for one another there.

    In addition to getting married in a beautiful place with the support of personable professionals, we felt welcomed into a project and community that we hope to continue to be part of.

    Diamond in the country

    This venue is a beautiful natural wedding setting and has many options that can accommodate many different budgets. We enjoyed staying at the venue for the weekend in the cozy treehouse and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Our pictures were beautiful and even with Covid-19 and rain threatening the event, we were able to have our dream wedding in a gorgeous setting that our guests seemed to enjoy as well!

    Absolute Wonderland

    Let me start by saying 48 HOUR RENTAL- hire a food truck (or caterer), have your rehearsal ON-SITE, and party on!

    If you are the type who wants a magical, natural backdrop for your wedding, Timberlake is it. Dan and I first went out to Timberlake in the late winter months when everything was brown and not blooming. Even then we knew that this place was exactly what we wanted. Acres of land to take pictures, a “treehouse” with a full kitchen and room for all of the bridesmaids to get ready, an awesome barn for the guys to put on their finishing touches, gardens and flowers everywhere; nothing could make this place better. Oh! And the tent for the reception is included!

    There are 2 fire pits that they will stock with wood. They allow the rentals to be dropped off Friday and picked up Monday, so no extra fees from the rental places. The area is so full of natural beauty, it allowed us to spend a little more on things that would truly make this a memorable night (the outdoor chandelier/living room was something I wanted so badly!)

    The managers are amazing. Super sweet and will help you in any way possible.

    Our exceptional rustic elegant venue

    Timberlake Earth Sanctuary is an incredibly breathtaking property! My husband and I found this venue online and decided we would take an adventure to North Carolina to see if it was the venue for us. (We reside in MN) From the time we entered the property, it was a special place to us. Jess and Michelle were so welcoming and let us explore as much as we wanted. That same day, we decided to commit to it as our wedding venue. As the months went on, and covid became more and more prevalent communication was huge! Whether it was with Jess, Michelle or Cindy, the staff was very professional and timely. A switch in staff did occur during our planning phases, but Cindy did well to answer all of our questions. Our special day came and it was beautiful. The property helped us have a intimate outdoor wedding with our families. We will be returning to the beautiful property when we travel their again.
