Dr. Meade & Kathleen Edmunds
The farm was purchased in 2005 by Doctors Meade and Kathleen Edmunds. Meade was searching for a farm that reminded him of his childhood. From the first moment he wandered down the long driveway and locked his eyes on the Greek Antebellum Manor standing tall at the top of the hill, his heart raced and he knew this was the one. From building the Southern Pavilion, to renovating the Carriage House, the couple has poured their heart and soul into making this farm perfect for you. Since then, they have had the pleasure of watching 2 of their 3 children also get married at the farm.

“It holds such a special place in our hearts”- Dr. Edmunds.
Danyelle McGrath
In 2006, Danyelle accepted a group sales position at a small cabin rental company in Pigeon Forge, at this time she never imagined it would lead to coordinating and executing weddings. Since then, she has successfully constructed 4 wedding departments at various companies, in addition to having hundreds of blissfully happy brides! With over 14 years of experience in the Event Planning Industry, the last 10 of which focused primarily on weddings, Danyelle strives to provide a stress-free experience for each bride and prides herself in making sure every detail is just as they have imagined it.

“Not many people can say that they wake up and enjoy going to work, but I truly do. I have a helping heart and I love helping brides! My biggest piece of advice-- the day goes by so fast, enjoy every minute of it and don’t stress!”
Emma began working in the hospitality industry in 2015. This allowed her the opportunity to work in weddings and events, alongside Danyelle. In her free time, Emma enjoys working on her Bachelor's Degree in Political Science. She is also very involved in her church and loves to travel! Emma loves helping our bride's visions come to life!
