Kathy G Venue Spotlight: J&D Farms

Kathy G Venue Spotlight: J&D Farms

On a recent overcast early Spring morning, the Kathy G & Company team had the pleasure of paying a visit to J&D Farms – A privately owned 40-acre farm that sits conveniently on the outskirts of Etowah County, and just 15 minutes from Historic Downtown Gadsden. Upon exiting the freeway, the stressors of fast pace living began to fade away quickly. Shadow-casting oak trees, beautiful wild flower blossoms everywhere you looked, lovely orchards, and morning-lit creeks guided us on our short but scenic route before we soon arrived at this most amazing venue, J&D Farms!   At first glance, you may just see a field, a barn and some fruit bearing trees with the fog slowly lifting. By the time you shake hands with humble, salt-of-the-earth owner, Danny McEachern, and begin to explore with him, one is completely captivated. With each step of the beautiful property, you sense the charm while the sun begins to pour over the quaint orchard. As he guides you through the barn and each and every nook therein, you can see the love and thought that went into the build of this awe-inspiring venue with a small-town feel . When we visited, even neighbors were pitching in to help tidy up the farm for the next weekends’ event – Truly a labor of love! The venue boasts several options for setup. The ceremony can be one of three places: (1) The orchard, a heavenly carved out setting where a break in the center of the trees makes a God made natural altar, (2) On the lawn in front of the barn using the gorgeous barn doors as your backdrop or, (3) Inside the barn for a quaint rustic feel. As for the reception, while inside the barn seems most logical, your guests and seating can easily spill over into the surroundings of the barn where you’ll also find a vegetable garden in the works – Perfect for farm to table dinners or receptions. One other thing we found endearing is that the couple never intended to offer their “home” as a venue. Like many of us, passionate in this industry, they “fell into the wedding business” and it has now become a way for others to benefit! As professional photographers, Danny and his wife always saw the beauty of his family farm, so one day on a whim the couple hosted a close relative’s wedding there and the rest is history! With promise and possibility, Danny hopes that J&D Farms will attract those who want to start their love story here. He has been listening and responding to couples’ wishes for the perfect venue – Trying to grant any and every request, but want to be sure to protect the integrity of the farm so that, for years to come, every couple can enjoy the romance, beauty and tranquility the property provides. Truly, it’s a destination wedding locale!  There may even be plans to have a honeymoon cottage (which is now their own delightfully quaint and inviting home), on site…But shhhhh, that’s a secret for now! All in all, we think J&D Farms is just perfect for the fairytale wedding every girl dreams of! And if ever there was a venue for a “Farm to Table” wedding – This is it!
