Local Venues: Covey Creek Farm

Jamie & Mitchell Stevens

Covey Creek Farm

 

When Jamie’s younger cousin joined the hockey team at school, they had no idea it would lead Jamie to the man of her dreams. “Mitch was the hockey coach! I went to a game one night, and the rest is history,” Jamie reveals. With plans for an outdoor, country-themed wedding, Mitch and Jamie selected Covey Creek Farm in Rossville, Georgia, for their venue. “We wanted a laid-back day with beautiful scenery, and with Covey Creek we got the best of both worlds,” Jamie says.

On a sunny November afternoon, after their grandparents, parents, and 10 attendants walked down the aisle, Jamie followed to the tune of Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon.” She wore a fitted lace dress with a dramatic plunging neckline; a stunning choker necklace, once belonging to her late grandmother, was her “something blue.” The couple held their ceremony inside an enchanting tree tunnel on the property, where guests could fully admire the venue’s natural beauty. White, beige, and dark green accents were used to complement the setting.

Guests then walked (or rode in golf carts, courtesy of the venue) to the reception, located in the main barn. Slices of tree trunks, miniature lanterns, and mason jars filled with baby’s breath created a rustic, welcoming tablescape for the seated dinner. Guests noshed on barbecue and classic sides like corn on the cob, mashed potatoes, and green beans before heading back outdoors. The dance floor and bar were set up just outside the barn, and according to the bride, the DJ had everyone dancing the entire night.

Jamie shares, “My favorite part was when our guests got to let loose and have fun on the dance floor. After so many hours of planning and preparation for the big day, it’s such a great feeling to see everyone enjoying themselves!”

How He Proposed 

“When we were moving from Chicago to Chattanooga, Mitch’s friends planned a surprise going-away party for him. Little did I know, I’d be getting the surprise! Mitch was thanking everyone for coming to celebrate, then called me up there with him and got down on one knee.”
