Once Upon A Time

Walnut Hill was once my childhood playground. The barns were my play houses, the chicken coup was the best hiding place, and the lake was where I perfected my swimming skills. As I grew up this piece of land was were I would go to get away from the world and find peace. I hope you find a little for yourself here too.

In 2019 we began hosting weddings at our family estate. When this all began I thought we would do a few weddings a year and it would be a small part time job while I stayed home with our newborn son Phillip. Well I never could have imagine how we would grow! In 2020 we welcomed our daughter Audrey, navigated covid with our couples, and built our home just ½ a mile from the venue. It was a scary year but here we are with more weddings than I ever could have hoped for on the horizon. Walnut Hill is not only full time for me, but my husband Scott joined the company in 2022!
