Weddings

27797359_10100787097941576_4822147470184509303_oI have a list of potential wedding venues that are within a stone’s throw of Karin’s Place. A great option is to have the wedding party stay at the house, have the rehearsal dinner here, get ready for the wedding here, and use a venue to give you the very best wedding that you could ask for.

The first thing to consider is that, while spacious, Karin’s Place is ultimately a home. HOWEVER, the short answer is yes, it is a possibility. The pricing and base guidelines are listed below.

Karin’ Place – what a truly special discovery. One of those random things that seems to have been meant to be. My husband and I had been looking for a venue to host the renewal of our wedding vows where our guests could stay with us. A friend of mine suggested Karin’s Place and it was perfect. We received spectacular customer service from Jenny and John in advance of our arrival. We live in Ireland and consequently had significant needs as we were able to do very little from so far away.

The event itself was a stunning success. 25 guests stayed at Karin’s Place with us and 30 stayed in nearby hotels. We used the caterer suggested by Jenny and WOW!! Good call. The food was immaculately presented and was absolutely delicious with just enough left overs to fulfil the late night munchies.

We had the ceremony on the deck overlooking the expanse of lawn fringed by woodland. We had the meal in the patio surrounded by landscaped gardens, the pirate ship playground, and various nooks for intimate chats. And in the background we could hear the delighted yelps and laughter of kids in the pool. Absolute bliss.  When a dramatic summer thunder storm arrived just after the meal, everyone filed into the Grand Room and the party established itself in there with dancing and music.

I cannot recommend Karin’s Place highly enough. It’s a deeply romantic and inspiring location. Enhanced greatly by the creativity and innovation shown by Jenny and John.
