I didn’t dream of becoming a wedding venue owner or owning multiple businesses for that matter. But, here I am, loving every minute of it! I’m a proud working mama, just trying to make the most of life and never let self-doubt get in the way of my big ideas. In 2014, my then fiancé, Nick and I decided to purchase Warrenwood and take a HUGE leap of faith. My goal from the start was to preserve and share this magical, historic property with as many people as possible. And through a lot of blood, sweat and tears, I have the joy of doing just that every single day by helping clients host the wedding of their dreams.

I'm a sucker for a comeback story so it is no surprise that I immediately fell in love with Warrenwood. Since it's completion in 1856, Warrenwood has endured a repeated cycle of restoration and decay. She has survived a tornado, a roof collapse, years of vacancy, and the threat of demolish twice. Every time she has been brought back to life, brick-by-brick and room-by-room.
I am just a small part of Warrenwood's story. But, I couldn't be more honored to be a part of restoring and sharing such a stunning, character-filled piece of Kentucky history.
In 1785, Captain William Warren, a Kentucky pioneer soldier and legislator, settled the area just south of Danville. It wasn't until 1856 that Captain Warren's sons completed the construction of Warrenwood.
In 1977, the property was added to the National Register of Historic Places for its significance to our architectural, agricultural and military history.
The home was modeled after the Elley Villa of Lexington and roughly based on sketches published by A. J. Downing and A. J. Davis.
