Southern Hospitality Shines at the Venue at Murphy Lane

Southern Charm. Southern Elegance. Southern Hospitality. That’s what you will find at The Venue at Murphy Lane. Brides and grooms who have shared the magic of a wedding here have called the enchanting spot “the perfect mixture of rustic and elegance!” 

Owners Kara and Hank Lane moved from Peachtree City to this stunning 88-acre estate in rural Newnan in 2016 with the dream of creating the perfect spot for weddings and special events. They fell in love with the property from the moment they first viewed it. “We felt this was land meant to be shared. We could just breathe here,” recalls Kara, “and we want our guests to feel they can come here, relax, enjoy nature’s beauty, and just breathe!” 

As you enter the beautifully landscaped grounds, you are whisked back to “days gone by.” The winding road from the main gate leads you to one of the signature locations for a wedding or special event – the modern farmhouse-inspired barn. But this is not just any barn! 16-foot barn doors open onto a wedding wonderland. The interior offers a classic neutral cream and ivory palette that complements any color scheme and decor. Banks of windows allow nature to be the perfect backdrop to your event, showcasing the natural beauty of the land with wide open vistas, night skies filled with stars, and stunning sunsets. The barn and glass-enclosed wraparound patio can easily accommodate your wedding or special event. A plush and comfortable bridal lounge is conveniently located at the barn for getting ready for the wedding or for photos. This location is truly a marriage of southern charm and sophistication!

In addition to the barn, The Venue at Murphy Lane offers numerous outdoor locations for your special day. Clients can choose the white, wooden gazebo, a shaded and cool valley location, a picturesque raised platform site atop a hill next to a beautiful tree, an open field with a very long aisle and grand oak tree, or a hayfield with wide open views of the pastureland. Since weather often impacts any outdoor event, Kara and Hank always have the perfect backup plan for inclement weather!

On-site overnight accommodations are available at the country cabin – a luxurious log cabin on the property that can sleep up to 15 guests. The cabin features all the amenities, including a large wrap-around porch for family and friends to gather, and a “man cave” basement – the perfect spot for the groom and his attendants to kick back and enjoy while the bride and bridesmaids are getting ready in the bridal lounge at the barn.

Impeccable service, attention to detail and meticulous cleanliness are hallmarks of your experience at Murphy Lane.  Kara and Hank are attentive, caring, and present for all the details of each event. The venue can be rented alone or customized with an all-inclusive wedding package. Kara and Hank have an exclusive relationship with wedding planner, Lea Ann Hurd of Southern Flair Events and work as a team to learn your needs, develop a plan and go the extra mile to ensure your special day is absolutely perfect. “If you need us, we are here,” says Kara! “Our clients become family. They trust us enough to take care of them on their BEST DAY EVER and we build lasting friendships.” 

Kara and Hank invite anyone with an event idea to meet with them. There are endless possibilities! They are available for corporate events, anniversary celebrations, team building activities, live concerts church retreats, non-profit fundraisers, business meetings, rehearsal dinners, bridal and baby showers, and so much more! Their goal is to help create the ultimate experience that will be remembered for a lifetime! Kara and Hank look forward to meeting you and helping you create the memorable wedding or special event of your dreams!
