The Theater location is our most versatile with a rustic barn look on the outside, but an elegant, classic look on the inside. The Theater includes a full kitchen area, indoor and outdoor restrooms, a 32-foot-wide stage, chandeliers, and many more features. We can accommodate 250 guests in the Theater. Our Waterfall location was completed in 2012 and has been a popular site since. The area is nestled under tall trees, a private pond and bird sanctuary, and a steady stream of water flowing from a hand-laid farmer field rock embankment. The Waterfall location can accommodate up to 300 guests and includes our white folding chairs, sound system and full set up of the ceremony.The Old Homeplace was the original house on The Lail Farm. Built in the 1800s, the Old Homeplace offers a rustic, vintage feel and is great for pictures and ceremonies.
