With more than 300 acres of land, you are invited to find the wedding venue that best suits your vision. Walker’s Bluff was opened to the public in 2008. Owners Cynde and David decided to develop land that had belonged to Cynde’s family since 1934. They wanted to create a luxurious venue where local families could come together to celebrate. Originally, the plans featured a modest home, vineyard, and riverside gazebo. People from the community flocked to the venue, delighting in the scenery. Cynde and David saw this success and decided to further enhance the space, turning it into a premium full-service event venue. Some of the spaces couples can choose from at Walker’s Bluff include the Tasting Room, Wine Cave, and the Enchanted Forest. Nestled beyond the vineyard, the Tasting Room is a warmly decorated, intimate setting that features a stone fireplace, comfortable seating, and a generously stocked bar. The adjoining Wine Cave features a skylight that floods the room with natural light, whether it’s from the sun or the moon. If you would rather exchange your vows in the great outdoors, there is a selection of settings for you to choose from. Have a classic fairytale celebration in the shade of the Enchanted Woods, or let the lake be the backdrop to your love. The vineyard is also available, offering an air of classic sophistication. The gazebo, which sits by the water, offers a covered outdoor space for your wedding day festivities. The estate’s wedding coordinator is ready to support you on your planning journey, from planning a menu to decorating the space.
