We would like to introduce you to Jenn Abney who is the event manager at the Event Barn at Evan’s Orchard in Georgetown, Kentucky. Celebrate your wedding day in a historic tobacco barn located on 175 acres of family-owned land. The newly renovated barn is surrounded by rows and rows of beautiful apple and other fruit trees. The main area of the barn is approximately 4,300 square feet and offers banquet-style seating for up to 200 guests. You can have your wedding ceremony inside the barn itself or outside with the orchard as your backdrop. They also offer really neat old wooden church pews for a unique twist for your outdoor wedding.
Evans Orchard as you know it today started in the 1990’s with a vision from Kevan Evans and his daughter, Jenny. They started to transition out of cattle and tobacco and into apples and garden vegetables. From a tiny booth at farmer’s markets, they have grown into a boutique store, market and massive play area for kids becoming a Georgetown landmark. In 2014 at the request of many friends and locals they decided to renovate their old tobacco barn to accommodate weddings and other special events. The first wedding at Evan’s Orchard was for a family friend and ever since this gorgeous venue has really taken off.
Jenn Abney has over 10 years of experience planning events all over central Kentucky. Here is what Jenn says she loves most about her job: “There’s something so special about a wedding ceremony. Each one is different and each couple is different. But at the end of the day two people have committed their lives to each other. And that’s no small thing! I love that I get to meet people whose path I might not have otherwise crossed. I also love getting to know each couple and their families throughout the planning process. But most of all I love that moment when they leave the alter, hand in hand, to start their lives together.” Jenn would love to chat with you and setup a time to tour the barn and the orchard.
