Potato Hill Farm, the perfect venue for a barn/farm wedding
Being out in nature is always sure to bring a big smile to my face. It is always inspiring and when combined with a camera in my hand I always have a great time! Awhile ago we teamed up with Yellow Canary to do a fun styled photo shoot at a wonderful venue, Potato Hill Farm. We had a blast meeting the donkeys and soaking in the scenery. What a great place for a farm or barn wedding! I recently interviewed Celine about her farm and here is what she had to say:
What is your background?
I am a middle school Reading/English teacher and am currently teaching 8th grade. My husband Ron is a professor at Xavier University. We enjoy working with people and have a passion to help those who have a dream. . . whatever it may be!
When did you first realize you wanted to work with weddings?
Well, people in the wedding industry have helped me along. Kristen and Suzanne at Yellow Canary and Brenda Pottinger originally came to the farm for a wedding shoot. At the time, the barn had not even been restored. However, through their vision of the farm, I realized that it was the natural path to travel. . . and they have continued to offer support and the belief that Potato Hill Farm would be a great wedding venue.
How long have you been in business? Where are you located?
We have been in business since 2010. We are located in Augusta, KY– just one hour south of Cincinnati. We have a primitive, restored barn, farmhouse, and 86 acres of out-of-the-way "holler".
Why did you start your business?
Naturally, a farm needs to be sustainable, and, every farm is essentially a business. It was just a matter of finding the correct fit, the perfect slipper, so to speak.
What is your favorite part of a wedding?
My favorite part is the creativity and design. I love to help make things happen and see the vision come together. From there. . . the day belongs to the bride and groom!
Where do you go for inspiration?
I am often inspired by nature. The farm provides that for my entire family. We have been able to do things and learn things there– that we just wouldn’t have done before. I also do a lot of yoga– need that for the "living in the moment" part of life. In fact, every day is an inspiration, if you stop for a moment and just. . . breathe the air.
What are your favorite upcoming trends?
I like to up-cycle elegance. Mix the yin and yang of beauty and simplicity. Find the essence of something and make it shine.
