Future Wedding: Luken and Linda

Future Wedding

Introducing Luken and Linda…these two will be tying the knot at The French Farmhouse Venue on December 12, 2020, and we are so excited!!

How Did you and Luken Meet?

Luken and I met in college at TCU. I am two grades older than him (and he never lets me forget it) so our paths didn’t cross until the second semester of Luken’s freshman year. One of my best guy friends was teammates with Luken; so we were introduced to each other one night at our friend’s house. Luken and another guy were about to leave the house to run the Kroger, as they walked out the door I jokingly shouted out “bring me back some chocolate!”. The Other guy just kept walking, but Luken walked back into the house and asked me what kind I wanted. Sure enough, he came back with a king-size reese’s for me. It was then that I knew I was in Love, just kidding, but kind of not really. We started off as friends and it grew from there!

How did Luken Propose?

Luken Proposed this January at Adriatica Village in McKinney. My family used to own a restaurant in this area so Luken and I would often take walks around Adriatica when we first started dating. He claims that when we first started going on these walks that he thought “If I am going to propose to this girl, this is where I’ll do it.” I’m not sure if that’s true but it sure sounds romantic so I’ll take it! Almost four years later, that’s where Luken got down on one knee. Then we went back to my dad’s house where Luken gathered our closest family and friends for a surprise engagement party. It was the sweetest way to celebrate.



Why did you and Luken choose The French Farmhouse Venue?

We were referred to The French Farmhouse by our pilates instructor (shoutout Kay). We toured some other venues, and with no luck, we decided to go check out The French Farmhouse. It stood out from all the other venues the moment we drove in. Let me set the scene. We pulled in to this sweet hardworking-man building a fence (it was the dad/husband of the property). He kindly pointed us in the right direction of the house we were headed to. We pulled up to the house and this bubbly girl jumped right out of the front door and greeted us with an excited “Hey y’all!” that made you feel like you already knew her for years. This was Kelsey (the daughter/venue manager). Then we went into the house and met Michelle(the mother/venue designer). To no surprise, Michelle was as comforting and welcoming as her daughter and husband. She thoroughly explained all of her visions in such a way that had us wrapped in every word she had to say. Even though the venue isn’t fully built yet, I had not even the slightest hesitation trusting them with my special day. There’s no doubt it will be absolutely gorgeous. But even better than that, we can’t wait to spend our day with this genuine and just fun-to-be-around family. It was a no-brainer that this was the venue for us.


What are you and Lken most excited about getting married?

Luken and I are most excited to get married to just get to share all our moments together. We can’t wait to take all those future steps together and continue to grow and be challenged and have fun. I’m also sure it’ll be fun to say “my husband.” lol


We can’t wait for these two to say “I Do” at The French Farmhouse Venue on December 12, 2020!

Future Wedding: Kaitlyn & Kyle

Future Wedding

Introducing Kaitlyn & Kyle! These two love birds who both swiped right will be saying “I do” on October 25, 2020, at The French Farmhouse Venue!

How did you and Kyle meet?

We actually met on Tinder! At the time, Kyle was in a band and I was an elementary school librarian so definitely an “opposite attract” situation. I saw his profile and thought there was no way he would swipe right on me too, but here we are! I knew there was something special about him from the moment I saw him. On our first date, we met at the Denton Square and sat on a bench trying different BeanBoozled jelly bean flavors and talking about everything. Something about Kyle just felt different; turns out I was on a date with the love of my life!

How/when did Kyle propose?

Exactly a week before our three year anniversary, we both happened to have some time off work. I’m a homebody so I was perfectly happy to stay home watching Netflix, but Kyle really wanted to go on a mini-road trip. He kept saying he wanted to go to Paris, TX since he had never been. I kept saying no, I had been before and I didn’t think it was worth driving that far just to spend five minutes at the “Eiffel Tower”. Turns out, he wanted to be able to say he proposed under the Eiffel Tower! We ended up deciding to go to the Magnolia Silos in Waco since neither of us had ever been and we LOVE Chip and Joanna. I jokingly told myself while I was getting ready that morning that I better dress cute just in case Kyle finally proposed, but I had no idea!! Once we got there, we shopped around a little bit, then Kyle suggested we get someone to take a picture of us in front of the silos under the Magnolia sign. I handed my phone off to someone, and as soon as I got back over to Kyle, he dropped down on one knee and asked me to marry him! I kept saying “what are you doing??” at a high volume so we, of course, gathered everyone’s attention right as I said yes- everyone there was cheering for us. It was a perfect day!

Why did you choose The French Farmhouse Venue?

We had just finished touring several venues and thought we had found one that would work, but it just didn’t feel quite right. That evening, I found The French Farmhouse on Instagram and could not get over how gorgeous everything looked. I was a little wary that it was still under construction, but decided to reach out and schedule a tour anyways. As soon as we arrived, Michelle and Kelsey made us feel so welcome and set our minds at ease! I instantly knew I would trust both of them with anything. We both loved the vibe and the grounds are breathtaking. Halfway through our tour, we both knew this was the one. Everything about The French Farmhouse fits perfectly with what we both had wanted for our wedding!

What are you most excited about getting married?

Kaitlyn- I’m just so excited to get to have more adventures with the love of my life. We’ve already been through so much in three years and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us! I love doing life with Kyle and it will be awesome to wake up every morning and keep doing life with Kyle as my husband.

Kyle- I’m most excited about spending the rest of my life with my best friend and love of my life. I’m excited to start this next chapter of our lives and officially be our own little family.
