Venue Feature: The Heartwood

Today's post highlights one of our favorite venues, The Heartwood. Located only minutes away from downtown Lexington, this venue is not only close to the heart of Lexington but also close to Keenland and all local attractions.

The Heartwood is a beautiful rustic yet elegant and versatile when it comes to decor. It has 10 round wood tables that are made with reclaimed wood. The tables are included in the rental of the venue, and so are 100 white chairs. You can fit 200 - 250 seated or 299 cocktail style in the large main room. The venue also offers an outdoor cocktail space with authentic bourbon barrels used as tables and beautiful string lights.

Here are five reasons why The Heartwood is one of our favorite venues in Lexington:

The venue staff is delightful and easy to work with. - Working with venue coordinators that are easy to work with and are friendly can make all the importance in the world. If you cant see yourself holding a conversation with this person or have a hard time getting callbacks, then it's not going to be a stress-free wedding. The Heartwood has a great venue coordinator, and she is super responsive!

It's close to downtown Lexington and the airport. - Trying to choose a ceremony site that is still accessible to out-of-town guests is not always an easy task. We know a 10-acre farm outside of Lexington might be gorgeous, but how do you expect your wedding guests to get there? Especially if your guests are traveling from overseas, the last thing they want to do is spend more time on the road. The Heartwood will allow your wedding guests to enjoy your wedding with minimal travel stress.

Their inventory of tables and chairs. - Working with multiple rental companies to

coordinate rental fees, delivery times, set-up fees, and return responsibilities can cause both you and your wedding planner quite the headache; not to mention it can take a good chunk of money out of your budget. Thankfully, The Heartwood already houses beautiful chairs and tables for each event; it's noteworthy the tables are so beautiful you might want to skip the linens altogether.

The extra areas. - Another noteworthy thing is the bridal suite and groom area. The Heartwood offers both rooms inside the venue for easy access, and it saves time traveling from other locations.

They are also LGBTQ friendly and don’t have limitations on vendors. All of this at an extremely affordable price. The Heartwood is one of Lexington's hidden gems.

- Groom and Bride Prep area.
