When I was much younger, I wanted to start my own business and had a strong passion for decorating parties. This passion was fulfilled by throwing my children’s birthday parties and having family over for holiday parties. In 2016-2017, suddenly we had two daughters getting married and I gladly stepped up to become their wedding planner. I had so much fun planning their weddings, putting my heart and soul into it. Fast forward, my daughter now has the same passion of throwing great birthday/holiday parties for her own children/family. “Planning and decorating is my favorite thing to do!” says Kelci.
How we got started: We actually weren’t looking to start a venue, but seeing the building for the first time, we KNEW it was perfect spot! Everything started falling into place. We quickly remodeled, and by the end of our first month in 2018, we booked 5 wedding receptions and it kept growing from there. Our passion is making wonderful memories for you out of love!
Do everything in love – 1 Corinthians 16:14
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.” 1 Corinthians 13:4
