Behind the Scenes

If You Only Knew…



It’s a new year and there’s a lot of new “stuff” happening at The Seclusion. We’ve finally launched our new website and along with it, our new blog! We are also building our new carriage house, which will be available for rent to wedding guests! Last but not least, we have adopted a new family member here on the property…”Charli”. Charli is a young, rescued Labrador Retriever mix that our daughter and her husband saved in Texas. We brought her back to The Seclusion to give her a loving home, with lots of space to play!

Often, when people visit the property, we are peppered with questions about how this all came to be? How we found the property, what it’s like to live here, what was the inspiration for the design, who was our decorator, so, we’ve decided to add a “Behind the Scenes” section to our blog, to share a bit of our life here. 

We have a small, energetic and incredible staff. We all wear a lot of hats while running The Seclusion. Some days are easy and things run like a well-oiled machine. And…some days they don’t! 

We’re very fortunate to live and work here, and blessed to make so many friends from the couples that marry here, the contractors that help us to grow and the wonderful vendors that help us create such memorable events. So, we decided to share the human side of our life, because things can sometimes get crazy trying to ensure a fairy tale wedding!

Stay tuned…here we go!
