It was another great year at Cedar Pond Farms, and we’d like to thank everyone who was part of our 2016 activities. In addition to our weekly farm tours, we had lots of events on the farm. We had a prom photo shoot, church youth events, wedding showers, engagement and wedding photo shoots, a vendor spotlight photo shoot, and lots of weddings!
We were able to take part in several shows, including the Bridal & Beyond show. It’s always fun to talk with brides about making dreams come true at our wedding venue. Of course, this show (and many other events) wouldn’t shine as bright without the help of Centsible Events. They make everything look spectacular!
Life on the farm certainly wasn’t dull, as there was always a chore to be done. The chores were made a little more fun withthe animals–especially the chickens! Beyond the mundane work, updates took place nearly constantly. Lighting options (like our outdoor chandelier) were updated inside and out. Decoration options grew as we added more antique backdrops and selfie station props. We also spruced up paint and fixtures around the farm, like at Papaw’s porch.
Of course, the biggest thing happening this year was the building of our new Big Barn. This new area will have seating for up to 300 people indoors. It will be a great spot for a wedding, a reception, or any other group event. We’ve gone farm industrial with the design, including things like European fan stamp concrete, rustic galvanized cattle-panel railings, subway tile, rustique rouge porcelain tile, and tons of warm lighting. It’s a beautiful yet functional space indoors, but we haven’t forgotten about the outside. We added a side porch for some fresh air and beautiful views of the farm.
We can’t wait for all the events that will surely occur here (and elsewhere) in 2017.
