Our Brides’ Stories

David and Brittany Stogner

Stogner Wedding — September 2019

When I first met David, I knew he was the one. He proposed to me on our 2-year anniversary by recreating a painting I did for him on one of our first dates. It was the most magical day for me and I wanted our wedding to be just as magical. Both of our families could not be happier and the count down for the big day began. Finally, after a year wait, our big day was here. Our wedding day was everything we dreamed of and more. It was so important to me to show both of our personalities during our ceremony and I was able to do that with Baily’s Place. Baily’s Place captures David’s love for history with the cabin and my love for the outdoors. We shared our first look under the beautiful pine trees as we both smiled with joy and tears. As I made my way down the aisle and captured my future husband at the end, I was overwhelmed with joy. The sun shining through the tall trees made everything feel like a dream.  I felt like all my prayers were answered in the man that was waiting for me at the altar. My heart will always be full of gratefulness for getting to share this special day with all of our friends and family. Most of all, we were so thankful to have a venue that was made our wedding feel like such a fairytale. Our wedding day was perfect and will forever be etched in our hearts and I am so thankful to have a video to capture it all.

Kyle and Adriann Thoden

Thoden Wedding — October 2018

How do you follow up a magical Disney proposal, secretly planned and executed in front of your family? Planning your dream wedding can be overwhelming, but when you are surrounded by your family and friends from the moment you say “Yes,” somehow a magical wedding takes shape and your dreams all come true.

Throughout the planning process, Adriann said she would get butterflies just thinking about all the details and how they would come together on their special day. She knew how “effortlessly romantic” the venue was and how easily her own personal wedding style would fit. Planning an October wedding comes with the chance of, well — October weather. Through it was unexpectedly cold, she told that us “everything was perfect. I smile every time I think about it.” One of her favorite memories from the day was after a cold a windy ceremony, the sun broke through the clouds and shined on them, as they walked down the aisle hand in hand, finally as husband and wife. She shared that there were an array of “favorite moments” throughout the day and night but she especially loved the little, intimate moments shared with her family and friends as she got ready. She felt lucky to have everyone that means something to her in the same place to celebrate their special day. From their magical proposal to the day they said “I do” they were surrounded by love and support.

A year later, Kyle and Adriann have bought their first house and have spent a lot of time turning it into their home – a home in which they hope to start and raise a family. We can’t wait to watch their love and family grow. We feel blessed to call them part of our Bailey’s Place family, and our family-family as well! ❤

Tyler and Stephanie Ridge

Ridge Wedding – September 2017

Our wedding was definitely a special day that I’ll never forget! My in-laws created the most beautiful space for a romantic ceremony in the woods. Tyler and I were so lucky to have all the help from the family to make that day so perfect! I remember when I made my way down that aisle with my dad, I felt like I was in a fairytale. One of my favorite memories from that day was when the wind blew through the trees and leaves were sprinkling down, as my future husband walked up to the alter. It was magical!

Bailey’s Place will always hold a special place in our hearts. I love that it’s a place where we can come back to host all the special events in our life. Like, this past year we were able to have our baby shower there! We welcomed our first child in November and I love that we have this place where our love story began and we can come back to share with our growing family!

Bobby and Amanda Ridge

Ridge Wedding – October 2014

They say every girl dreams of her wedding day. I am not sure if that is true, but it is for me. I always knew what I wanted — to marry the man of my dreams at a simple, sweet, and beautiful ceremony — surrounded by my closest family and friends. When my (then future) in laws purchased the cabin, it was in no shape to be sweet and beautiful, but as cleanup and renovations progressed, so did the visions for my future wedding. As they cleared the brush and brought this cabin back to life, I knew it was the perfect place to marry their son. It was not yet a “venue,” the grass was not yet full and their was no indicated space for a ceremony, but we knew with our vision it would be just what I had hoped for — simple, sweet, and beautiful. My husband and I took our vows in his parents backyard (where the grass was full), surrounded by our closest family and friends. We then invited them to join us at the cabin for our reception. A tent was put up, lights were strung from the trees, yard games were brought out, food was catered and served from the cabin, and we celebrated our marriage in the most perfect way. Our day was flawless from start to finish. I now feel honored to get the chance to share this space with future brides. I hope that you see Bailey’s Place for what it is and if it is the perfect place for your special day, we can’t wait to celebrate with you!
