People always ask us “So you actually live here?” Yes we do! I’m sure to many it’s crazy that we open up our home every week to strangers and maybe it is but we are having so much fun sharing our home with happy couples and their friends and family from all over the country. We’ve met so many great people and call many our friends.
Brian is a Nashville firefighter (besides the many hats he wears here) and he built our home, the pavilion, bridal suite, farm tables and many of the props. I am a former publicist and owner of Front Page Publicity. For 20 years, I handled some of country music’s biggest stars including George Strait, Martina McBride, Miranda Lambert, the Dixie Chicks, Naomi Judd, Taylor Swift, Dierks Bentley, Travis Tritt among others.
We were married under the big oak tree and built our dream home on the hill. We have raised our blended family of four – Hunter (24), Preston (17), Benjamin (16) and Katie Ryan (9 and the boss of the family). They all know a great deal about weddings and especially how to set up and break down chairs and tables!
We handle weddings & events at this venue as well design and plan events at other locations. Most recently Dan Smyers & Abby Law’s wedding, Universal Records’ CMA Party, Kasey Musgrave’s Christmas album release, Brantley & Amber Gilbert’s wedding, Don Henley’s & Luke Bryan’s album release parties. It’s a lot of hard work but we have mastered the art of taking your dreams and pinterest pins and transforming a space into more than you could imagine!
ALEXIS KING – FLORAL DESIGNER, ASSISTANT EVENT PLANNER, AND DAY OF DIRECTOR
Hi, I’m Alex! After graduating from Auburn University, I moved to Nashville and have been apart of the Front Porch Team for about a year. Here at Front Porch, we do some much more than your typical venue. Some days I’m a guru, where I spend hours on the phone answering your various questions. Other days I’m a dreamer, gushing over magazine clippings and floral ideas you’ve been collection for months. Occasionally I’m the voice of reason, when you’re pushing the limit on a budget. But most importantly, I’m here for you! Here to help make crucial decisions, guide you along the path, and keep you sane.
I believe in working hard and being dedicated to my couples. I believe in celebrations of life, marriage, and love. I’m always here to answer your questions, bustle your gown, or deal with your crazy family. I’m your go-to girl, and I can’t wait to help you plan your big day!
