Who can cater our wedding?
*We prefer that you use our in house catering staff. It is important to us to have high-end food and service. It should be the kind of quality experience that comes with the Honey Brake brand. Our chef-driven catering team pride themselves on a sophisticated palette of southern flavors and fine dining service.
*However, if you have a licensed catering service that you would like to use, we have a kitchen that will accommodate them.
*We want it to be your day. This includes the food that will be served.
Who can do the floral for our wedding?
*We ask that you use our in house design team to make your florals for the day of your wedding. We are delighted to partner with Janet Ann's Design and Decor as our in house design team. Led by Honey Brake Weddings Venue Coordinator, Janet Johnson, we are able to better serve our brides by eliminating the added stress of finding the right florist, while also, offering an expert and unmatched familiarity with Honey Brake Lodge.
Specializing in bringing your custom wedding to life, from sophisticated tablescapes to bold ideas and themes, they insure that your event will be exceptional and something you and your guests will be talking about for years to come.
*We do allow you to bring in your own DIY touches to make the day your own.
*We, also, allow you to have an outside florist to do florals for your rehearsal dinner or DIY.
"Janet was amazing to work with. From the very beginning of the planning process she was able to assist with ideas, decorations designs, and inspiration for the day of our wedding. She brought my ideas to life in ways I could not have imagined. Our wedding was August 20, 2016, a very rough weather week for a wedding. She was able to calmly help prepare us for an indoor wedding in case the weather did not cooperate. She had prepared extra pieces to display if the venue location had to be changed, and had our centerpieces looking amazing. Thankfully we were able to have the ceremony outside, but it was reassuring to know how prepared she was in case of last minute changes. The lighting, tule details, and fresh flowers created a rustic romantic atmosphere for our day. Janet did an incredible job taking our ideas and bringing them to life. I was able to relax knowing that we had such an amazing decorator for our day. She is very easy to work with, and will do whatever it takes to make sure the event looks stunning." ~ Ashley
"We want to thank Janet Ann's Design and Decor for making our wedding day so special. From our incredibly gorgeous flowers, to the amazing lighting, the barn was transformed into the most magical place. We were set on an outdoor wedding, when the wind and cold finally made us decide differently. Janet had only two hours to recreate the beauty outside within the barn. She not only made the barn beautiful inside, but was also incredibly flexible and patient and always had a smile on her face! Thank you Janet for making our wedding more beautiful than we could have imagined!" ~Cortney Novak
