Welcome to Our Flower Farm!
Our Wedding Venue
The Flower Farm at Dogwood Hill is more than a wedding venue, we’re a wedding planning service and florist, too. Our charming property is “home” to more than 160 rose bushes and thousands of flowering plants that fill our space with nature and color. It’s not uncommon for us to see hummingbirds in the garden or at their feeders during events. And, we’re surrounded by lower cow pastures which can bring a visit from the neighboring farm’s donkey from time to time. Our space is open and welcoming, yet private – tucked back off the street with the ceremony space surrounded by a thick treeline.
Our venue space offers more than 3,000 square feet of covered outdoor space for your event. The garden ceremony space includes guest seating under a pergola and barn porch, followed by dining inside our Garden Barn. In 2018 we presented our newest addition to the space – a 400 square foot outdoor dance floor “under the stars” with a clear greenhouse canopy roof over it. There is dedicated bridal suite and 2 restrooms also on the property.
2019 will bring the Wall of Roses – a great photo opportunity! We planted more than 20 rose bushes on a slope this year. They will grow up to create a 5-7 foot high wall of rose bushes that will look stunning as a photo back drop. We also have mountain views with the side of Starr Mountain directly across the street from us.
We’re owned and operated by a professional, experienced wedding planner. This means that you get the added benefits that come with hiring a wedding planner without actually paying for one. There’s all kinds of little things people don’t always think of that wedding planners do. From seeking competitive quotes for your catering, to finding over night accommodations for guests. we’re here to help you find the right professionals for your day as part of our Pre-Planning services. Then, as the day grows closer, we’ll contact your professionals and confirm all the arrival and setup times for you. We organize the rehearsal so everyone knows what they are supposed to be doing.
Rehearsal or Optional Rehearsal Picnic
A standard rehearsal only is included with every wedding package. If you want to serve food at your rehearsal the Rehearsal Picnic is the perfect add-on for you. Our optional rehearsal picnic package includes 3 hours on the property. We serve sweet tea, lemonade and bottled water, plus the meal package of your choice from one of our preferred caterers, we provide picnic table space, background music and lawn games.

Day of Coordinator
We make sure everything is setup right and ready for your wedding so you can focus on you. Lastly, we coordinate the ceremony on your wedding day AND all the activities throughout the reception. We’ll convey announcements to your Master of Ceremonies so all your guests know where to be and when so they won’t miss a thing from cutting the cake or the first dance.
Decorating & Setup
All the drapery and lighting you see in our photos is handled by our staff. This means that you don’t have to spend hours exhausting yourself cleaning and decorating our venue before your wedding. We clean the tables, chairs and floors before each event. Then, we dress the tables with covers and lace. We handle hanging the drapery and tying the accent bows.
Music – We’ve Got the Beat
We have a great music system installed on our property. Installed in January of 2018, our new system offers entertainment beginning 45 minutes before your ceremony so that guests who arrive a little early feel welcome. During the ceremony we’ll coordinate the songs YOU PICK. We play appropriate background music during photos and dinner. Followed by YOUR special dance tunes and general dance party music including the popular line dances.
Lawn Games & Fun
We keep a selection of lawn games on the property including corn hole, horse shoes, giant jenga, giant tic-tac-toe, Lawn Yatzee and more. So, even the guests who don’t dance will have a blast! Lawn games are included in every wedding package we offer.
We are one of the few venues that thinks about children at weddings. We’re pretty busy running your wedding day so keeping an eye on children at your wedding is a team effort. But, we do provide a playhouse, climbing structure and activities that are kid friendly to help keep them entertained.
Every venue is different. Each one has its own unique features. Some couple’s choose a venue strictly for lits location, or its appearance. Some venues only offer space and appearance, with no planning, decorating or staffing help. Our venue is not for everyone. Only you can decide which venue is right for you. We have a lot to offer for our price range BUT we urge each and every bride to consider more than just the price tag when shopping for your venue. You should “love it” – it will be the location of a life long memory.
