Wedding Wednesday: Our Wedding Venue

Our wedding venue was one I had my eye on before we got engaged.
 I was a dreamer I guess. Or just one of those crazy girls that pre-planned her wedding before their boyfriend even had a ring. Probably the second option. :)

I knew it was one I would look at one day, and always had a gut feeling about it.
My sister, mom and I planned a visit a few months after we got engaged, and I knew it was the one. It was rustic, which I wanted. It had so much personality, even without the extra wedding decorations. And there was so many options on how your day could go.
I LOVED that it wasn't going to be "cookie cutter."
 Mine and Cody's personalities would shine at this venue.

So without further ado, here is our venue.
The place where we will say our "I do's."
The place where our forever begins.

The Ruins at Kellum Valley Farm
Cleveland, Georgia

 "Nestled in a picturesque valley of the Blue Ridge foothills, just an hour from North Atlanta sits The Ruins at Kellum Valley Farm. Together with breathtaking mountain views, and rich history, Kellum Valley Farm makes an enchanting location for your wedding. Our 19th century restored stone ruins seat guests in an outdoor ambiance that is certain to leave a lasting impression on your family and friends."

There are so many good things to say about this venue.
For one, the price is amazing for everything you get.
DeAnne, the owner, has an entire room of props that are free to use for your day.
The food is the best food I've ever had in my entire life.
And I'm not exaggerating.
It's just beautiful.

Here are a few (or a lot) pictures I've snapped from a couple visits to Kellum Valley.
All these pictures get my mind rolling with ideas, and I can't wait to see the dream come to life.

The ruins...

The pool/cocktail hour area...

The grounds...

I can't wait to share the day with y'all!
It'll be here before we know it.

  17. What beautiful places. And I thought I was the only one who was crazy enough to start the wedding planing before the man even has a ring. I di that long time ago even before I had a steady boyfriend. I haven't gone far enough as to look for places b/c that would be an all depends thing and plus money. I hope you get everything you ever dreamed of when that day comes. I loved the barn with the old Coke cola sign on it. and one of the places was beautiful with the white barn in the distance. The old claw tub reminds me of the one we use have to here before my dad redid the bathroom and now it's outside and holds water and goldfish.

  18. This is going to be one gorgeous venue! It is absolutely stunning! I know you will have the most perfect wedding.
