Hello! We are Dustin and Emily and we'd like to share a bit about ourselves...

In 2010, we were acting in a film opposite each other and became fast friends. We discovered that we have a lot in common: we're both dreamers and creators; we love music, traveling, laughing, designing, and living life to it's fullest. It wasn't long before we started to predict our future...by building it! We were reminded of Teddy Roosevelt's quote: "Do What You Can, With What You Have, Where You Are". Keeping that in mind, we literally dug in and started to transform the property that was once a sawmill. It was almost as though the land was speaking to us...and we listened. There have been many long days and nights of planning, cleaning, constructing, repurposing and through all of our challenges and accomplishments, we've done it together.

On June 9, 2013, we became the first couple to say "I Do" in Echo Valley. We feel fortunate to have hosted more than 100 weddings since and are excited to share our venue with more amazing couples in the years to come! We are continually striving to enhance what is already a peaceful, beautiful and enjoyable location and put our hearts into every detail along the way.

We, along with our "children"- Roman, Butterbean, Penny and Webster - look forward to meeting you in person!
