Loblolly offers three different locations to choose from for your wedding ceremony. All 3 locations are within steps of the barn and the getting ready areas.
The Oak Tree seems to be the most popular location. An arch is provided as part of the rental price. You're welcome to decorate the arch with draping and floral accents.
The larger than usual pine tree is also an option. This location is used for those that want to bring in their own ceremony backdrop.
The pond is our third option for wedding ceremonies.
THE BRIDAL COTTAGE
There is a separate air conditioned cabin for the bride to get ready. A open area completed with white decor, mirrors, living area, king size bed, dining table, full bathroom, and kitchenette.
THE GROOMS QUARTERS
Groom & Groomsmen...We didn't forget about you! There's an air conditioned room located on the back of the barn for the groom and groomsmen to get ready. Leather couch, chairs, coffee table, mirrors, hooks for hanging clothes, and more.
We have a list of vendors we can suggest, however you aren't required to use anyone on that list...it's just suggestions. Outside vendors are more than welcome at Loblolly Rise. Here are just a few of our favorite vendors!
