When a couple celebrate their wedding here at Up the Creek Farms, they become part of the Up the Creek Farms family. It is currently a growing family of more than 150 couples!  We enjoy keeping in touch after the wedding to hear about growing families, new business ventures, and of course when there are more reasons to have a party! We are always amazed how fast time flies as we commemorate first anniversaries of our brides & grooms, and when we see announcements of babies being born. We sincerely love our Up the Creek Farms Extended Family!

In October, we were honored to host the wedding of a true family member – an actual blood relative! Kelly is the sister & sister-in-law of Up the Creek Farms’ owners Tim & Jess. When Kelly & Justin got engaged, it was exciting to be part of the planning & celebration. With both Kelly & Justin’s families from Jacksonville, coming down to Valkaria was a borderline Destination Wedding! The family had a fun weekend celebration staying at The Grant House – the perfect place to have a family get-together weekend of fun & relaxation by the river.

Kelly & Justin’s wedding was decorated with bold reds, maroons, and bright greenery. The florals were designed in house, at Up the Creek Farms. Our favorite bloom in the arrangements was the King Protea flower which could be it’s own arrangement since it is so bold & beautiful! The Boathouse was divided up into fun little areas, including a pie bar! A selection of yummy pies by Joan’s Perfect Pies certainly make the evening even sweeter. The bride and groom accented the cocktail tables outside with fun table games & custom cornhole boards. Whether inside or outside on the patio, this crowd had a fun time! The dinner was mouthwatering scrumptious BBQ by 4 Rivers, and then to top the evening off was cake made by the bride’s cousin. Perfect would not even begin to describe the day!
