Josh was born and raised in West Tennessee, was lucky enough that his high school girlfriend said yes to marry him, and is “Dad” to 2 great kids. He loves hunting, fishing, playing guitar, getting his hands dirty, and renovating anything his wife puts on her "to-do" list. When he's not putting people to sleep as a nurse anesthetist, he loves nothing more than getting on his tractor in the afternoons after a long day of work. He loves making sure that the venue and property are 100% ready for White Oak Farms couples on their wedding day. He has a passion for making sure that couples and their guests have the best experience on his farm. He's a master at the grill, pro at fixing anything, and loves the simple way of life. As the Venue Co-Owner and White Oak Farms founder with Stephanie, he's ready to show folks good, old Southern hospitality.
Stephanie is a West Tennessee native, married to her high school sweetheart and mom to 2 beautiful children. She loves wedding and party planning, DIY renovations, antique and estate sale shopping, cooking, but especially baking, being creative, interior decorating and farm living. Stephanie was a successful event planner in Nashville, Tennessee, and designed and planned weddings, Music Row parties, birthday parties, corporate events and non-profit fundraisers. Her work was featured in Southern Living, on numerous blogs and online party planning sites, and she was a monthly entertaining contributor for At Home TN magazine based out of Memphis. Stephanie also won the Wedding Wire-Bride’s Choice Award for her work as an event planner.
When Stephanie and Josh moved back to West Tennessee, she wanted to bring some of that big city style she was used to working in to her property. She told Josh she wanted to create a high-end all white venue that would rival venues in larger cities. With her love for interior design and her desire to make sure brides have everything they need on their wedding day, she and Josh set out to design a venue from the ground up.
Stephanie's true passion is entertaining friends and family at her home and sharing life experiences together. As the Venue Co-Owner and White Oak Farms founder with her husband Josh, she loves sharing her farm with those that will make their own memories at White Oak Farms. She loves nothing more than knowing that every week hundreds of people get to experience the beauty of her West Tennessee property (even if they travel hundreds of miles to get here).
