Your Venue Can Help Create an Intimate Feel

While the property sustained damage from the fires in 2020, the venue luckily remained untouched. At only 100 guests, Derek and Kayla's day was both intimate and emotional. Because of experiences in both the bride and groom's lives, family was of the utmost importance on this day. They even wrote personalized thank you cards after the fact to every single person who came.

A Ceremony at the Cutest Cottages

The ceremony location was nestled between the cottages with the creek flowing behind it. Cocktail hour was held on the deck area of these same main cottages, which led down to the natural creek flowing through the property.

Yes, Bumble Was Incorporated Into the Day

Because they met on Bumble, the bride and groom decided to incorporate that into some of the decor, personalizing honey jars on a honeycomb structure Derek built. That wasn't the only thing that had that personal connection on the day of the wedding. With all vendors being close friends of Kayla's, each and every one had a seat at the reception so they could celebrate with the happy couple!
