Why did you decide to get married at Sweet Pecans Farms?


We decided to get married at Sweet Pecan Farms because the venue is just BEAUTIFUL. It needs little to no decorations and it would still be gorgeous. It’s also exactly what I imagined and dreamed of for a Halloween wedding! The dark wood is second to none looks-wise and we immediately fell in love ❤️


Relationship History:


We dated on and off throughout high school (fun fact: I was his first kiss when I was 16 and he was 14! 😂❤️) We basically talked on and off between dating other people for about 7 years until we finally decided to try and date each other instead and never looked back. We always joke we could have been married 5 years ago if we had just opened our eyes a little bit, lol!


Best and worst wedding planning experience?


The best experience has been talking about and planning our honeymoon.


The worst part has (surprisingly) been registering for gifts. No one tells you how time consuming that part is and seriously why are there like 100 different brands of literally everything— It’s crazy! Currently our registry actually looks like one of our dogs are getting married, so I don’t think we’ve gotten the hang of it just yet, Lol!

Wedding Date: March 14, 2020


Why did you decide to get married at Sweet Pecan Farms?


We decided on Sweet Pecan Farms because of how beautiful the setting is. It’s exactly where we want to say “I Do”!


Relationship History:


We met in 2017 at the Sikeston Bootheel Rodeo. We were both beginning our careers, him as a lineman and me as a nurse. We both thought we were too busy for relationships at the time, but God had a different idea. So here we are 2 and a half years later. We just bought our first home, crazy in love with each other, and raising two fur babies. Haha!


Best and Wedding Planning Experience:


The best part of planning a wedding is how close it brings our families. Sam and I are both big family people. We both come from loving and supporting families and we love watching our two families become one giant one.


Our least favorite thing about wedding planning is definitely the stress, haha. From narrowing down colors to agreeing on what food we want to chow down on after we tie the knot. But love is supposed to be an adventure and ours definitely is. Although we could not be more thankful for this adventure God has given us both ❤️

Why did you decide to get married at Sweet Pecan Farms?


We decided to get married at this venue because it has everything you need in one place! The dark colors give the venue a beautiful and romantic touch.


Relationship History:


Ryan and I met while working at target through a mutual friend who invited us both to dinner at Applebee’s. After an accidental date because we were ditched by Mikayla (the mutual friend) we’ve never left each others side. We’ve been together for over a year now!


Best and Worst Wedding Planning Experience:


The Best wedding experience I’ve had is how amazing Amy is! She has been very accommodating to our needs/ questions and responds very quickly!! We had another venue booked before this one and when things went south Sweet Pecan was amazing in helping us save our wedding!!

Wedding Date: May 16, 2020


Why did you decide to get married at the Sweet Pecan Farms?


We decided to get married at Sweet Pecan Farms after seeing how beautiful the venue is. The customer experience was amazing; they were very considerate and would keep us up to date on everything.


Relationship History:


Tyler and I have been together for over a year now.
We met in the fall of 2018 out of no where and hit it off instantly. We were complete strangers and after getting to know each other we realized we lived less than a mile away from each other! We both felt a strong and unbreakable connection and quickly fell in love with each other! We got engaged in the Summer of 2019 and we wanted a spring wedding, so we agreed on our date after seeing Sweet Pecan Farms!


Best Wedding Planning Experience:


The best wedding experience is knowing that once we picked our venue, in a few months I will be marrying my best friend and soulmate.

 Wedding Date: June 27, 2020


Why did you decide to get married at Sweet Pecan Farms?


When we visited Sweet Pecan Farms, we immediately fell in LOVE with it! The venue, both inside and outside, is absolutely gorgeous. It fit with the aesthetic that we wanted for our wedding. It was also so convenient to have the ceremony and reception in the same place.


Relationship History:


I got a text from my friend asking to go as his fraternity brother’s date to a semi-formal. I agreed even though I really didn’t know who Stephen was (BEST DECISION EVER). We met up at a local diner in Springfield, MO to get to know each other before the dance and have been inseparable ever since. We’re so excited to say “I do” in June and grow old together!


Best & Worst Wedding Planning Experience:


The best planning experience has been dreaming up what we want our wedding to look like. Everything from the cake and decor down to the save the dates and invites.


The worst planning experience was probably addressing all the envelopes for the save the dates and invites. I really wanted to do them all myself by hand. It took a lot longer than I expected, but we were both happy with how they turned out.

Wedding Date: November 2, 2019


Why did you decide to get married at the Sweet Pecan Farms?


We decided to get married at Sweet Pecan Farms because it is absolutely everything we wanted. We knew we wanted to get married in a barn and when we saw the Facebook pictures of it being built Austin’s exact words were, “I want to marry you there!” So we scheduled a time to see it and we both knew instantly we would get married in this beautiful barn!


Relationship History:


We’ve been together for almost 4 years now. Austin messaged me on Facebook 4 years ago in July and asked if he knew me because I looked familiar and that simple message started our forever.


Best and Worst Wedding Planning Experience:


The best wedding planning experience has been getting to work so close with my soon to be sister in law getting every small detail figured out.


The worst wedding planning experience has been figuring out catering! We want to have the best food so we’ve been taking our time on finding who to cater. I think we finally made the decision but it took the longest!

 Wedding Date: September 28, 2019


Why did you decide to get married at the Sweet Pecan Farms?


We chose Sweet Pecan Farms because first and foremost it is amazing and beautiful. We were looking for a venue that had it all. We wanted an inside rustic wedding. Ceremony and reception in one spot. Weather won’t be an issue....It is everything we were looking for and the first we inquired about. We couldn’t be happier!


Relationship History:


We became friends when we were in college. Our lives went in different directions but we kept in touch through social media for years. Until one day, out of the blue, three years ago we saw each other in person.....we were inseparable since.


Best and Worst Wedding Planning Experience:


The best wedding experience is having such a wonderful wedding party. All their love , help and ideas have been amazing!


The worst experience has been finding a great caterer. The food has to be great. We believe we found the best for us. Definitely took the longest.
