The Walters Barn went above and beyond my expectations for my wedding day. Allison and Sherri were amazing and I could not asked for better help in planning and coordinating my wedding. If you’re even considering using the Walters Barn, do it! You will not regret it! They are AMAZING!

I really can't say enough about The Walters Barn and Soirees Southern Events. Sherri and her team were amazing. I had a pretty tight vision of what I wanted my wedding and reception to be, and once they were finished, it even surpassed my wildest dreams. The wedding ceremony and reception were simply stunning. Our wedding coordinator did get changed around the middle of our planning process due to the opening of a new venue, but both coordinators we worked with were great. We started-off with Allison who was incredibly sweet and knowledgeable about the venue and all it had to offer. Then we finished-up our wedding planning with Andrea who also was our day-of coordinator. Andrea is a ROCK STAR. She eliminated all stress and made sure the wedding day ran smoothly. This place is seriously awesome, and I couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else! PS- LET SHERRI DO YOUR FLORAL. ALL.... OF YOUR FLORAL. Breathtaking!

Sherri and her team were absolutely amazing! From start to finish they accommodated our every need and made it incredibly easy to plan a wedding from an hour+ away. On the day of the wedding, Sherri's team, including Andrea and Becca, made sure everything went off without a hitch. They paid attention to even the smallest details and the day couldn't have gone any smoother. They unpacked all of our decor, booze, etc. and made the space look wonderful. At the conclusion of the wedding, their team packed everything up, including leftover food and cupcakes, and loaded it into cars. Our family members didn't lift a finger. They even gave us a doggie bag to take with us to our hotel. Our friends and family are still talking about what a beautiful, unique wedding venue Walters Barn is. The vendors included in the all-inclusive package are also top-notch. We highly recommend DJ Nigel, as well as Luna's catering. You can't go wrong! Thank you, Sherri, Andrea, and Becca for making our wedding dreams come true! Sherri is the most amazing florist. I showed her pictures of what I was envisioning and she delivered. I dried my bouquet because it was too pretty not to! Thank you, Sherri!

The Walters Barn was a spectacular venue for our wedding day. The venue is spacious and has a great layout for large weddings. There is plenty of great dance space and room for all your vendors to set up. The coordinators that work with couples who choose the Walters Barn made sure every detail came together perfectly. They took time to meet with us throughout our wedding planning and fully understand our vision. On our wedding day we didn't have to worry about a thing. I will definitely be recommending the Walters Barn to all future brides I meet!

From Chris, Mother of the Bride:

I can’t say enough about Southern Soirée Events and The Walters Barn. Our daughter’s wedding reception was held at The Walters Barn on October 14. Thanks to Allison Dolph (one of the BEST coordinators on Sherri Christiansen’s team), the day could not have been any more perfect! Allison coordinated all of our day-of vendors for a seamless event and she could not have been more gracious in handling all the details throughout the whole planning processing in the months leading up to the big day. Sherri Christensen provided all the flowers and they were absolutely gorgeous. We were blessed with wonderful weather that day and the beautiful venue provided a backdrop for incredible photos. Our guests haven’t stopped talking about what a great time they had and how beautiful everything was. There are not enough words to describe it all. To us it was the BEST DAY EVER

I had no problems at all on my wedding day. The venue took care of everything for me and the only thing my husband and I had to do was enjoy our special day. Our original plan for the ceremony was to have it by the beautiful lake outside, but due to the rain, we had to have the ceremony inside the barn. Despite the last minute changes, our wedding was extremely beautiful and seamless with its flow due to the wonderful staff that made it happen.

I honestly cannot thank Sherri, Andrea, and the whole Walters Barn staff enough for everything they did for our big day. They all were there every step of the way to make sure everything was taken care of and everything ran smoothly. Our day would not of been perfect without them and how beautiful the barn was decorated. Even though it did rain for a little bit I really appreciated that I was never pressured to bring my ceremony inside, instead Sherri helped me stay positive and rearranged the day just so we could have the ceremony outside after it cleared up! I have nothing but wonderful things to say about my experience at The Walters Barn and I highly recommend this venue to anyone looking at venues!

From Betsy, Mother of the Bride:

Walter's Barn was a fabulous venue with its beautiful building and grounds, but the top quality service provided by Soiree's Southern Events made this option a great experience. I would plan it all again with Sherri, Allison, and the whole staff because they made the job of mother-of-the-bride very easy and enabled me to enjoy my daughter and her big day. Every detail was attended to and they made sure we stayed on schedule and that the event was a huge success.

What a gorgeous venue! Andrea and Sherri really worked hard to make our wedding perfect - and everything looked exactly as I had imagined it! Thank you for helping to make our day so special!

From Eileen, Mother of the Bride:

This is the most amazing place! From the beautiful scenery to the ease of dealing with everything, these folks are top notch!! Sherri and Andrea couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. They made my daughter's big day truly a day to remember!

We had a wonderful experience at the Walter's Barn. The meetings we had throughout the process helped keep us all on the same page and helped us as we worked through the details. Everyone involved was extremely professional and SO nice. They truly want to make it a smooth day for the couple! I literally did not worry about anything on our wedding day. :)

From Beverly, Mother of the Bride:

My daughter's wedding was in June and Walters Barn is not only an absolutely beautiful venue, but the people that we worked with were awesome! They answered all of our questions timely and we were able to meet with them several times before the wedding and the day of the wedding could not have been more perfect. Love this place! I highly recommend them!

Absolutely perfect!! As a dual military couple, my fiancé (now husband) and I were attempting to plan our wedding from two different states, across the country. A nightmare for almost any bride out there. However, Andrea and Sherri made the planning process so stress free and easy. Sherri was able to incorporate every little detail I could have ever wanted and made sure I was able to chose even the tiniest of details despite having to do it over facetime and phone calls. Andrea had every little detail of the day planned out to a T and made sure everything went seamlessly while still letting us get off track when we wanted to. I cannot say enough amazing things about these women, this venue and the perfect wedding day they gave us!

Getting married at the Walters Barn was an absolute dream. My husband and I live in Atlanta, and we were hoping to find an outdoor venue within an hour of the city with breathtaking scenery that felt like an escape—Walters Barn is it! Every time I went up to Lula for a meeting with Sherri or Andrea, their expertise and the beautiful venue set me completely at ease. Plus, there’s an adorable donkey on the property! We did the Saturday wedding package, which was the best choice we could have made. Sherri and Andrea of Soirees Southern Events took care of the florals, food, pies (which we did instead of cake), DJ, and day-of coordination! It was such a relief to know that all those things were taken care of, and the results were incredible! The food and pie was DELICIOUS and the florals were over-the-top gorgeous. Sherri and Andrea are rock stars. They are wonderful about keeping the bride focused on having fun and just moving everything else along behind the scenes. They’re also amazing at handling all the delightfully complicated family dynamics. :) I wholeheartedly recommend The Walters Barn & Soirees Southern Events!

The Walter's Barn is an absolutely stunning place to be married! The staff is amazing. They knew everything that was going to happen before it happened and had everything planned so the bride and family could enjoy the day. They make this venue worth every single penny. I would re-live my day every single day. Sherri, the manager/planner, did my flowers and they were so much more beautiful than I could have ever imagined! Wonderful venue!

The staff at The Walters Barn is an absolute dream to work with! They took care of everything and had made sure that all of our wedding day dreams came true! Once the day started, I didn't have to worry about a single thing, and just got to enjoy the day. I can't thank them enough for all they did to make sure everything was perfect.

The Walters Barn was an excellent venue that accommodated all of our wants and desires for our wedding day. We were beyond pleased by the work of Sherri and Allison as they worked endlessly to ensure our special day was perfect. They were dedicated to helping us from the first minute we met them to even after we left the reception. During our wedding day, our only worries were getting married and celebrating with family and friends. My husband and I could not say enough about The Walters Barn and the Soirees Staff.

The Walters Barn was the PERFECT venue. Sherri and her team did a fabulous job with everything - from flowers, to coordinating between vendors, decoration, set-up, etc. I was so comfortable knowing that they had everything under control. It was such a seemingly seamless transition between ceremony and reception. Everything was truly beautiful and I am so thankful for how it turned out. Sherri and her team did a great job of making me and my guests feel comfortable and I'm so thankful for that. I absolutely loved everything about the wedding and can't get over the amount of compliments that I received from the wedding (many said that this was the most beautiful wedding they've ever been to!!!). I loved everything about my wedding and absolutely recommend The Walters Barn to any future brides!!

From Michele, Mother of the Bride:

Our daughter's wedding was absolutely beautiful!! The guests are still talking about how beautiful the venue was!! Sherri was coordinator, advisor, floral designer and fabulous decorator! Her interns, Christy and Mackenzie were wonderful, especially their beautiful lettering of all the chalkboards. The venue is absolutely beautiful!! We went with the Sunday package which included flowers, decor, food, DJ and cake. The flowers and decor were breathtaking, Johnnys BBQ was delicious, Nigel the DJ was GREAT!, and Sugartopia provided the gluten free cake topper and 3 flavors of cupcakes was scrumptious!

The Walters barn was beyond AMAZING! From the staff to the venue itself. Everyone was more than willing to help from day 1. Allison and Sherri made the day of coordination a breeze. Everything was in its place and run so smoothly, there was NOTHING for me to worry about! I HIGHLY recommend The Walters Barn or any of Soirees venues!

The Walters Barn was everything we had ever dreamed of for our big day, plus more. Words cannot begin to describe how beautiful this venue is. From how gorgeous the barn is to the beautiful ponds on the property to the grand entrance, it was perfect!! The venue also came with a wedding coordinator who is AMAZING!! Sherri made our day absolutely perfect and even helped out with things that weren't in her job description. She went over and beyond to make sure that the bride and groom did not have to worry about anything on their special day. I would recommend the Walter's Barn to anybody about to get married. It made our special day that much more special and memorable!!

Sherri and Allison were so great in making my dream wedding come true! They used the decor that I provided, plus their own, and created a magical, fairytale wedding that was prettier than I could have ever envisioned! It simply was magical! I am also so grateful to them for getting in touch with all of the vendors I selected and arranging a schedule that was absolutely flawless! The Walters Barn staff is incredible!!

Where do I even begin? Walter's Barn is the most beautiful venue ever, it is rustic and still classy! Sherrie the coordinator for Walter's Barn, and her assistant Allison are AMAZING! They took the time to go over every detail including: floral's, decorations, signage, and timeline of day-of, and so much more! They took the time to coordinate all the details with all of my vendors (food, photographer, preacher, & hair/makeup) to ensure that there would be no confusion for the day of. Sherrie arranged all of my floral arrangements, and I was totally blown away with how precise and absolutely beautiful they were! If your looking for a wedding venue, Walter's Barn should be your first and last option!

The Walters Barn far exceeded every expectation we had for our early February wedding! We were highly reccomend them to everyone! From the very beginning of the process every member of the staff was incredibly helpful, and we were able to plan our dream wedding at this beautiful venue in less than 5 months! Choosing the all inclusive package was the best decision we could have made! Our wonderful planner, Madelyn, made every aspect of planning our wedding incredible fun and easy! She was always willing to answer our questions and help us in any way she could. The day of coordination was perfect, and the staff made sure that every aspect of our rehearsal dinner and our wedding day went off without a hitch. The florals and decor were stunning, and were one of our favorite things about our day. Sherri perfectly captured what we were invisioning for our wedding day, and our guests could not stop raving about how beautiful everything was. The quality of every aspect of our wedding was insurmountable and we could not be happier!! Thank you so much to everyone at the Walters barn and Soirée Southern Events for putting together our perfect wedding day!
