J&D farms.. A place for weddings

If you envision a wedding under the warm glow of afternoon sun, dappled through the limbs of vintage apple trees, or the rustic elegance of an authentic barn wedding or reception, look no further! In 2017 we unveiled our new White Oak stables featuring a stunning whitewashed interior with vintage chandeliers and featuring air conditioning! Pair it with our barn wood farm tables and oak X-back chairs to create the look that everyone is talking about!

J&D Farms is an incredible venue (all our guests could not stop talking about it all night!), but it's so much more than just that. Danny was a huge help throughout every step of the way -- from recommending other local vendors and sharing tips from what worked well (and what... Read More didn't!) to his BEAUTIFUL photography and attention to detail, making sure everything ran smoothly the whole weekend. We could not have picked a more perfect place for our big day, and would absolutely recommend J&D Farms to anyone looking for a venue. There truly aren't words to express our level of gratitude for all the staff at J&D who helped make our day so incredibly perfect.

J&D Farms was such an amazing & beautiful place to get married! I would recommend it to every bride currently looking for a venue. Danny went above and beyond to make sure that my husband and I had the best day imaginable. He was always courteous and flexible during the planning... Read More process, often allowing us to come to the venue to look around (sometimes for several hours). He even allowed us to attend the wedding of another bride, just so that we could see how everything gets set up. The level of personal service can’t be beat! We held our rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception on the grounds. There were several people from the venue on hand that night to make sure everything moved smoothly. Danny himself stayed and helped us work out an issue with one of the suppliers (the heater wasn’t working properly and he fought on our behalf). Their selection of decorative items was extensive and incredible! On top of everything they allowed us to use from their own supply, Danny allowed us to use almost anything else we brought in. He cared much more about making sure we enjoyed our night, than a big list of rules or regulations. It was a fantastic place to get married and we couldn’t have been happier with the experience.

J&D Farms - wedding venue

If you're going for shabby chic, elegant, natural or anything in between, the setting can be arranged at J&D Farms. The land is simply gorgeous with ceremony and reception options of an apple orchard with antique church pews or poolside or a rustic yet fabulously clean barn with... Read More amazing architecture. The atmosphere is that of relaxation and class. I could not have been more relaxed on a day that tends to stress out brides. The owners of the farm and, how convenient, also amazing and creative photographers, are both the sweetest people and very professional all at the same time. They let you choose your own caterer, band, photographer or anything else that other locations might lock you into. We chose them as the photographers (J&D Photography) and are 100% pleased with their work. You will not lack any scenery or backdrops for photos since the land has so much to offer. There is a finely crafted carriage house where the bride and her party gets ready. I would recommend this location a million times over to any engaged couple looking for a wedding venue. My husband and I are elated to have gotten married there.

Everything was wonderful!

We took a tour here about a year ago and the owner was AMAZING! We started talking about our struggles to find a venue who would take us (we are a same sex couple) and he was so understanding and accepting. I actually started crying while talking with him. Their website is the... Read More best one I've seen, so much information is on the site you know pretty much everything before even going to J&D. The pictures also do not do them justice (even though they are wonderful as well). If you think the pictures are stunning wait until you see this place in person!! Him and his wife are both photographers and as we were touring he was telling us ways they try to make everything picture perfect. Small details other venues wouldn't think of like the perfect spot for cars so they won't be seen in pictures to hiding an ice cooler so them or the guest wouldn't snap pictures of it and mess up the photo. Every little detail they are have you covered. I am not having my wedding here due to the fact my fiancee's family lives over an hour away and theres so many of them it does not make sense to have so many people drive that far so we are having it closer to them. If this wasn't the case I would have my wedding at J&D farms with no questions asked! Even though I am not having my wedding here I'd recommend them to anyone! I know they will take such great care of you on your special day!!

I just got married at J&D farms on September 30th and I can't brag enough about this place. First of all, the venue is absolutely breath taking and so romantic. The owner, Danny, is with you every step of the way. He is always available to answer questions and he is the nicest... Read More person you'll ever meet! He also did our photography and we are SO happy with the results. We are from Birmingham so we asked Danny to suggest vendors in the area and every single vendor he suggested did a wonderful job!

After visiting several wedding venues in Georgia, we decided to take our search to Alabama in hopes of finding our dream location. The moment we arrived at J & D Farms, we knew we would host the most special day of our lives there. The scenery was absolutely breath taking, the...

J&D farms was the absolute best! This venue couldn't have been a better place to hold our rehearsal, wedding and reception. We fell in love with this place and had a "destination" wedding just so we could get married here! The moment you step foot on the grounds you are...

We absolutely fell in love with the venue from the beginning because it's almost impossible not to, but the initial interaction we had with the owners confirmed that this would be the place for our wedding. Danny and Jana were quick to respond to our website inquiry and schedule... Read More a thorough tour of the grounds. Every question we asked was answered and every request was fulfilled almost immediately from the time of the tour all the way up until our wedding day. Although J&D Farms has several wedding packages to choose from, we were able to create a customized plan for our rehearsal and wedding to remove items we did not need and to include extras as well. We included a two night stay at the carriage house and aside from being a beautiful place to get ready and take pictures, it proved to be very convenient to stay on the property with access to any thing we could possibly need to prepare for our big day! Having access to the grounds the entire day before the wedding, the day of and the morning after allowed us to set up and break down with ease. There are truly no adequate words to express the hospitality we received not only from the owners but from every single employee we encountered during our time at the farm and we will be forever grateful to this amazing venue for helping make our wedding day one we will never forget!

We bought the largest package from J&D and couldn't have been happier.

We had more people than expected to show up and Danny quickly found more seats for them and did a great job keeping me calm. You have no idea how beautiful the farm is until you see it in person. Slightly modern features with rustic decor was ideal for our personalities and everybody talked about how nice the venue was. Besides the hot summer sun, our day was perfect. With many weddings under their belt, they have very good advice and I'm glad I listened! Take it from a perfectionist, J&D is definitely worth a look. We have absolutely zero complaints and highly recommend them. Worth every darn penny!
