When Scott and I searched for the place we would get married, we kept running into the same problem. Everything was super expensive, and there weren't a lot of choices as far as whom you could use to cater, florists, etc. Being a chef and owner of a catering company, I didn't want food that wasn't exactly what we wanted. Food is important to me and I wanted to choose my own caterer and create my own menu. Each venue we toured had tons of clauses and limitations set for vendors and time. It became a little discouraging!
However, after an exhausting search, we finally found a great place and had our perfect wedding!
A nagging thought kept running through my head for years though. "It shouldn't be this hard to find a beautiful place for a wedding or party that doesn't cost a fortune, and where you can choose the people who will create your dream."
Scott and I decided that we would create a place for people who wanted a beautiful wedding, party or retreat without breaking the bank or limiting their choices. We searched for property in Middle Tennessee for two years. Weekends were filled with driving through the countryside. When we stepped onto the land that would become Ashland City Farms I knew in my heart that this was it!!
Ashland City Farms is not only 130 incredible acres with a beautiful, new Event Barn for us to create a family business for generations, grow loads of flowers, veggies, and animals, but it is also our home where we built our dream house and are raising our three children.
I hope that you will find a home for your special event at Ashland City Farms as well.
