Situated on 50 acres of land steeped in local history, the ca. 1819 Homestead Manor property is a multi-layer hospitality concept, offering a wealth of dining, entertainment, and educational opportunities to the community. In addition to our working farm and our on-site restaurant, Harvest, the Barn, built in the middle of Homestead’s pastoral surroundings, lends another dimension to the property with a rustic-style structure that elevates wedding celebrations and community gatherings.

How I got into weddings: It was a side step from the music industry, planning release parties and industry events for the company I worked for. I never set out to have a career in events, but it fit like a glove and I’ve loved it ever since!
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? The true warmth of hospitality and community. Southerners really know how to plan a party, set a table, throw open the doors, and embrace their loved ones.
Favorite part of a wedding day? When I get to see the bride and groom relax into the day. It happens at a different moment for everyone–sometimes the first look, sometimes the walk back up the aisle, sometimes on the dance floor–but at some point, I see them just smile and get lost in the day.
Best piece of advice you can give to brides and grooms? Without a doubt, just be yourselves. Invest in the things you truly care about for your wedding, and forget about the things you don’t. This is your day and it should be an expression of what is meaningful to you, not a checklist of traditions!
