White and Gold, To Have and To Hold



Tayler Ashley Photography captured this magical day with Julia and Ryan at our Castle, and we’re honored they wanted to share their big day, and their pictures, with us!



Each love bird put on some final touches in our Bridal Suites before Ryan got ready for the big reveal!

The detail in Julia’s hair was absolutely stunning and so classicly romantic!



The First Look was beneath our Grand Oaks behind the Castle, and Ryan’s look of excited confidence is so cute!

Away from prying eyes, for a more intimate moment before the whirlwind of the day, this secluded spot is perfect to romantic couple’s shots.




The Ceremony, down beneath the Oak Trees, was accompanied by the talented Daniel Plane on the Cello!



Tayler Ashley Photography snagged a quick shot of our favorite “I Do” glow!

It’s something we wait for after each ceremony and makes all the long days unquestionably worth it.



The happy couple decided to accentuate our Castle’s natural beauty with lots of neutral tones and accents of bright metallic gold.

Elegant white floral arrangements from a family member were surrounded by lots of natural greenery, wood, while the gold chargers and candleholders were from “Amy’s Closet” here at our Castle!



Personal Touch Dining helped us set the tables, and thanks goodness for their commitment to excellence!

Each place setting was arranged with the utmost care and precision to complete Ryan and Julia’s dream tablescape.



The dinner also through Personal Touch Dining was a feasting buffet that had tantalizing Tri-Tip and hearty Rustic Chicken topped with Bacon, Sliced Scallions, Jack and Cheddar Cheese, and a Chipotle Cream Sauce.

For sides, guests tried a bit of the Garlic Chive Whipped Potatoes, Fresh In-Season Veggies, and a Traditional Cesar Salad.




After dinner, space on the dancefloor was in high demand thanks to Dancing DJ Productions, who rocked out with the guests for the rest of the evening! 



Thanks again to Ryan and Julia for choosing to spend their special day with us here at the castle!

And thanks to all the spectacular vendors who help us make the magic happen!

Sweetest Wishes for the Bride and Groom!



Paige Hill Photography Spent the day with Tom and Katie here at our gorgeous Castle for their big day and shared these incredible pictures with us!



Feather Acres Farm and Nursery used our Oak Tree Ceremony spot as their blank canvas to decorate this simple, yet sweet, little area. 



We especially love these pictures from Paige Hill Photography of the love birds getting ready for their first look!



Katie’s dress is so romantic with the delicate lace and low back, and with a little help from Mom, everything looks flawless.



The First Look on the Sun Patio is the perfect spot for such a momentous occasion. 



This happy couple looks ready to wed!



These two knew how to set the tone for an adorable heartfelt ceremony!



The Oak Tree area is so magical, Paige Hill Photography captured a couple of shots of the ceremony that stole our breath away!



It is hard to look away from the glow of these smiles!



Personal Touch Dining helped us set the dining area with Tom and Katie’s vision in mind. 



A little accent of silver and gold can go a long way in this classicly romantic setting.



Everyone had Jordan Almonds at their seat with a little explanation of the happy couple’s wedding tradition they wished to share.



After a relaxing cocktail hour of delicious drinks and tasty appetizers, Personal Touch Dining served up another world-class buffet!


Pictured here is their famous Strawberry Spinach Salad, perfect for any time of the year, and always a crowd favorite.



They also cooked up a twist for desserts with Katie and Tom!



Instead of a wedding cake, these love birds cut and served each other bites of an Icecream Sandwich!



Sound Prodigy took care of entertainment for the rest of the night as guests danced the roof off of our Grand Hall!



We couldn’t be happier for this beautiful couple and wish them all the best in their many years to come together!



Thanks to all of the vendors who helped us bring out the magic again for this sweet couple!


Special thanks to Personal Touch Dining for the Management, Coordination, and Catering of all our events!

How To Make The Best Out Of A Rainy Situation: The Matt and Sierra Story



Due to an uncharacteristically damp forecast on this happy couple’s big day, we had to make a few adjustments to our final layout!


Thankfully, we had the fantastic staff from Personal Touch Dining to help us move all the tables and chairs inside from our lower lawn area!






Warm and dry, all the guests were able to fit inside our cozy Castle thanks to Personal Touch Dining, and Sugar Rose Flowers who did an amazing job bringing the outside in with their adorable romantic floral arrangements!



Paige Hill Photography was always on hand to capture the best moments of the day.

This First Look just about stole our breath!



Paige Hill Photography knows how to bring out the most beauty from every candid shot!



Down at the ceremony site, Sugar Rose Flowers was busy crafting this masterpiece of hanging magic.



They created the perfect Floral Arch for the top of the aisle!


We’re in love with the dark maroon roses and breathtaking spots of purple foliage in this delicate ceremony frame.


We’re also crazy about this picture from Paige Hill Photography of the big kiss!

There’s nothing like the after ceremony “Glow” to keep us motivated!

The Grand Entrance was down our historic steps and directly into the main floor of our gorgeous Grand Hall.



Flour Power baked a classic four-tiered cake, and each layer was a different delicious flavor!

These love birds had all the smooth moves during their first dance as Husband and Wife! Sound Prodigy kept the dance floor jumping the rest of the night as everyone rocked out to the best dancing songs, personally selected by DJ Pat.

Nobody can resist an excellent throwback to the early ’00s!

Finally, when the music had to come to an end, our fabulous coordination team got all the guests lined up for the Grand Exit.

These two look ready to spend the rest of their lives together!

We wish Matt and sierra all the best in their future together!

We were so honored to be chosen to share in their special day!

A huge thanks also for our team of spectacular vendors who helped make all this possible!

We couldn’t do what we love most without you.
