When we first moved on to our little property, we never imagined that we would host multiple weddings each year. We joked around about it, but never thought the old buildings, historic home, and land would become the backdrop for a rustic, barn wedding venue.  At the beginning,  75% of our land was covered in […]

We host many different types of photo sessions at The Grantham House from family portraits, first birthdays, senior portraits, to engagement sessions.  When the photo sessions are finished it is always fun to get to see the final product.  I love seeing the laughing children playing in the fall leaves, the families posed with the […]

I began this post at the end of the summer when our  garden was in full bloom.  I had GREAT intentions of posting this then…but procrastination got the best of me.  I still wanted to share it with you, even though it’s FREEZING outside! Hopefully it will help you reminisce on the warm summer days […]

One doesn’t have to spend much time on our little farm to realize that we love animals. We love them for all sorts of reasons but mainly because they help support our sustainable living-ish lifestyle. You can read more about that in a previous blog here: Sustainable Living-ISH Photos by Tiffany Johnson Photo by Jessica Creech […]

  Shortly after we moved to The Grantham House, I received a message from Joanne.  Most people reach out to us wanting to schedule a photo session, or to get wedding information, but Joanne was contacting me about something completely different.   Her request surprised me, brought tears to my eyes, and instantly made me […]

Chelsea and Adam’s story started way before their wedding day.  The two of them shared a mutual friend who thought they would be perfect for each other.  It turns out that their friend has a knack for match making because Chelsea and Adam hit it off. They quickly became friends and soon realized that there […]

“You live here?” This is a question we are asked just about every time we’re showing a new bride and groom around The Grantham House.    Photo: Tiffany L. Johnson   Yes! We live and work at our farmhouse wedding venue. Some people love the idea and some question our sanity, but for us it […]
