We are so excited to introduce you to Kayla Nord, Richard and Debbie Webber the owners of The Barn at Springhouse Gardens in Nicholasville, KY. Just minutes from Lexington, their historic tobacco barn is now a breathtaking wedding venue. The barn captures the charm of days gone by, preserving the best of Kentucky’s traditional barn architecture and blending it with modern elegance. The new enhancements to the barn feature a rustic loft, dazzling chandeliers and wall to wall custom flooring with the look of natural stone. Many vintage accents include bourbon barrels, a repurposed barnwood bar, carriage lanterns, a customizable chalkboard, antique cabinets, a stunning wall of mirrors and more. The entire venue is nestled amongst mature trees and is surrounded by lush gardens beautifully lit and accented for evening ambiance. This place is a photographer’s paradise and perfect for your upcoming wedding.
The Barn at Springhouse also offers week of coordinating. This includes calling and meeting with all of the wedding vendors ahead of time. This ensures that everybody knows exactly where they are located, what is expected, and how everything will work. Their team can also do an entire day of coordinating for the wedding and/or reception, to make sure the bride’s day is absolutely perfect.
The Barn at Springhouse Gardens is a family owned and operated business that is very flexible and centered on their couples. They do everything that they can to ensure that your day will be perfect and go above and beyond what is expected. On top of that, they only book one wedding per weekend so there is no conflict or confusion. They want their entire focus to be on the couple and their guests and anything they might need. If you envision a wedding in a garden surrounded by lushness and authentic Kentucky beauty, The Barn at Springhouse may be what you have been looking for! The Weber’s bought the Springhouse property when Kayla was six years old and turned an abandoned 1920’s tobacco farm into a beautiful garden center and landscape business. Ever since Kayla was a little girl she always wanted to do something that involved weddings. Growing up Kayla and her father had always talked about Kayla getting married on the grounds of Springhouse Gardens one day. When she got engaged it seemed that turning the barn into a wedding venue was going to be too difficult. After a little persistence, Kayla convinced her dad with the thought of turning it into a thriving wedding business afterward. After this decision, they started to transform the barn and grounds into Kayla’s dream wedding venue.
Kayla’s perfect wedding day took place in July of 2015. Ever since that day they have opened up the Barn at Springhouse Gardens for other couples to enjoy. Kayla said that “after planning my own wedding and going through that entire process, my parents and I quickly learned the ins and outs of what it takes to pull off a successful wedding. There are so many things to consider and so many things that can go wrong if a careful plan is not thought out and carried through. My mom and I have been fortunate to work with several talented wedding and event planners and have learned first hand what successful wedding coordinators need to know and how it gets done most efficiently. We have coordinated several events and weddings throughout our first full year and have loved every minute!” Here is what Kayla, Richard and Debbie love most about what they do, “The thing we love most is getting to know our brides and grooms. Each couple is unique and brings a different set of ideas and style to our venue. It keeps things fun and interesting because no two weddings are exactly the same. We love switching things up and making each couple’s vision become reality. One of our new Springhouse traditions involves burying a bottle of bourbon upside down out in the Gardens to ensure good weather during the wedding and reception. We invite each couple out one week before their wedding to ceremoniously bury the bottle, which helps alleviate the stress and calm any nerves about the upcoming week. The bourbon is then, once again, ceremoniously unearthed during the reception and is passed around to the delight of the guests. Each bottle is then signed and dated and becomes a memento of a fabulous occasion to be displayed on a wall in The Barn.”
Be sure to schedule a tour of the Barn at Springhouse Gardens. Trust us you will not be disappointed this place is absolutely amazing!
