Love is in the Air at Murphy Lane
For those who attended the 2018 Spring Open House at The Venue at Murphy Lane, you likely experienced what I did…. Community. Love was definitely in the air, and not just between the engaged…
Despite lots of prayers and wishes for sunshine, the weather was not in our favor. Rain began, cold set in, yet owners Kara and Hank Lane and their angel brigade of assistants kicked in with smiles and fortitude to create space and beauty for each participating vendor to shine their brightest. Vendors worked together amidst hugs and catching up to put on a beautiful day for the soon-to-arrive guests. And arrive they did!
As couples turned up in droves, it was evident that it was a family affair! Moms, dads, brides, grooms, sisters, besties… everyone came out to enjoy this certainly festive event to celebrate Georgia’s most beautiful new wedding venue. The fun surprise was how many hugs and laughs passed between visiting families who ran into each other, adding to the joyous wedding atmosphere!
A Piece of Heaven
The Venue at Murphy Lane is the love project of Kara Lane, whose son was married on the property not long before it became what it is today, and her amazing husband, Hank. Both recently retired, Kara and Hank bought the land and it’s dwellings, and dove deep into the renovation process.
To say that they put every loving touch possible into every aspect of this venue is an understatement! Romantic references around every corner, perfectly thought out finishes, delicious interiors, and Audrey Hepburn quotes on the Bridal Suite wall above the hollywood lights and salon chairs – six of them!! – will tell you that any bride getting married at Murphy Lane is in for a day of feeling like the princess she is!
Not to mention the grounds…. !! Ceremony site options are abundant, and each one delightful. Yet before even that, guests approach by a long winding road surrounded by manicured grounds, rolling hills and nothing but peaceful beauty.
With a house on the property, and a cottage to accommodate larger groups, Kara and Hank have created a little piece of heaven. And, as everyone who has met them knows, they are the most lovely people in the world. Hard-working, always happy, engaging and kind, these are the people I would want behind the scenes on my wedding day. They care so much, and it shows!
The Venue at Murphy Lane is a true gem, and has already become a favorite of wedding vendors, and couples, near and far. Surely there will be another Open House coming up soon, but in the meantime Kara is just a phone call away… and the minute you arrive you’ll see that a most enchanting wedding awaits!
