The second ceremony area is located adjacent to the large reception area and is nestled under a Honey Locust Grove, provides some great shade on those hot sunny days. When this grove is populated with the local bees, it provides an amazing humming ambient sound. Have no fear, these bees do not come down to bother anyone. A magnolia is also located at the rear of this location, which, when paired with the hand maid “Bridal Gate” makes for a spectacular entrance.
For your ceremony, Angel & Anchor Farm provide several types of archways that can be used. Ranging from circle, to triangle, to hexagon and more.

While you are here looking at locations for your wedding, have you thought about who will capture all the incredible moments? Hi there, I’m TJ, In short…I’m a tattooed coffee connoisseur and Wookiee linguist that has a set of chops that make Wolverine cry.
I GET IT,
It’s not enough to have a photographer who just takes photos of those expected moments on your wedding day. Hell, your uncle Bob and his fancy camera can do that.
But these are not just photos. These are the moments from a unique story created from a reality of all the things that make your wedding…YOUR WEDDING! It’s about this once in a lifetime gathering of people, relationships, and history, coming together for a celebration that will never again exist.
When i’m your photographer, expect jokes, good vibes, and big focus energy on you and your story, allowing you to relax, kick back, and fully enjoy every moment of your wedding day worry free.
I’d love to have a chat and see if I am the right photographer for you.
