Planning Your Wedding at Walnut Hill

Are you looking for a beautiful barn wedding with rustic charm and timeless elegance? Do you want a casual, intimate event for your closest family and friends? Or are you after a serene outdoor affair? You can have all of the above at Walnut Hill.

Unlimited Visits

You’re welcome to visit the farm as many times as you’d like leading up to your big day. Use the time to perfect your vision, speak to us about the different decorating options, meet with other vendors and more. We want your day to be exactly what you want, and we’re happy to offer you the time to make it exactly that.

Tables, chairs, & decor

We have a long list of items available to you for your event, including tables, chairs, linens, decor (large and small), dance floor, and more. We’ll be happy to provide you with the complete list when you visit for your tour. Our goal is to ensure that you have access to what you need so you don’t have to deal with the hassle of renting all these individual items. These are built into the price, too!

A personal touch

The Walnut Hill property comes complete with a beautiful red barn, rolling pastures, old towering trees and grazing horses. These things help set the scene, but you have the opportunity to make the venue exactly what you want. Have something specific in mind? We’ll work with you to make sure your wedding has your own personal touch that is unique to you alone.

A consultative approach

We’re both retired school teachers, and we spent more than 70 collective years providing 1:1 help to students to see them succeed. We’re happy to continue that approach with the venue as well. From our first phone call or meeting, we’re going to be available to you to make sure your vision becomes reality.

Vendor recommendations

We’re aware that weddings come with tons of moving parts, which is why we’re happy to make recommendations where we can. If you’re interested in a referral for a caterer, photographer, musician or just about anything else, just ask! If we’re willing to recommend them, then you can know that we’ve worked with that vendor previously and trust them to provide high-quality service.

Picturesque photos

We won’t take the photos for you, but the scenery provides quite the backdrop. Even amateur photographers can walk away with a great shot. We’re happy for you to have your engagement photos and bridal portraits taken on the grounds, and your photographer will be, too!

Peace and tranquility

We’re far enough away from the big cities for you to be able to relax in the open countryside, but we’re not so distant that you’ll feel lost! We’re near Mooresville and Salisbury, NC, and an easy drive from Charlotte or Greensboro as well. When you book your wedding with us, you can have access to the venue for the duration of that weekend, which means that you can host your rehearsal, wedding, and reception all in one location.
