Vows & Venue

Whitaker Farms is a beautiful 275-acre farm, comprised of open pastures, a pecan orchard, old barns and silos, as well as aromatic lavender & wheat fields. It is a favorite amongst photographers from all over. We have been lucky enough to have four generations of Whitakers live on this land over the years. In the early 1950’s the farm was first used to raise dairy cattle. In 2015 we sold off our dairy cows in order to start Vows and Venue. This event company stemmed from our passion of bringing loved ones together in celebration. We hope that you’ll join us for a celebration of your own! More info
