*le sigh* I've fallen in love with Historic Oaklawn Plantation. Our first visit to the beautiful home was a few years ago for Kari's bridal portrait session and I still can't get enough of it. As you pull up the long drive you're welcomed by old boxwoods (which seem to be just as old as the house) that line the brick walkway. The front of the house is incredible with it's double story porch and big white columns. You can just imagine the lady of the house standing on the top porch waiting and watching for her true love to come home. Most weddings take place with the front of the house in the background under the big oak trees. The grounds and ceremony area are covered with old oak trees -- one that's base is so wide it would take about 6 people holding hands to encompass it. Behind the house, by an old cabin, bright red barns, and a courtyard is where most choose to have their reception. The inside of the house is a whole different blog post! Mr. Shuff has maintained the history of the house with beautiful antique decor and trimmings. If you want to see photos of the inside let me know and I'll send you some of Kari's bridal portraits.

You can have this sweet boy pull you in the carriage to welcome your guests and groom at the aisle. LOVE!
