The Loft at Walnut Hill Farm, LLC was purchased in August, 2013 by Alan and Sharon Armstrong, their daughter Dr. Ashley Armstrong, and Ashley’s husband Robert Heath Prince.
Alan and Sharon both graduated from Indiana University and were educators for 43 years before retiring from teaching in 2016. Alan passed away in a tragic farming accident in October 2018.
Dr. Ashley Armstrong and Heath Prince are graduates of Purdue University. Robert is employed by General Motors and Ashley owns Regional Veterinary Services.
The purchase of the Loft at Walnut Hill Farm was always intended as a cattle farm. However, the beautiful meadows, hills, and trees were so breath-taking, we decided to share it with others. Shortly after purchasing the farm, the idea of turning part of the farm into a wedding venue was born. What better way to share the rustic serene surrounding than to have brides, families, and friends have their dream come true in a natural sanctuary.
Working with a local contractor and Loyd Graber Construction Group, renovations began on the bridal cottage and the dilapidated old Dutch Hoop Barn in January 2014. The construction and renovation moved to the swine farrowing house and the construction of the pavilion in March 2014.
Our constant work: mowing, weed eating, fence building, painting, and landscaping reveals our labor of love into this beautiful wedding venue.
The Loft officially opened August 1, 2014. The first wedding was September 13, 2014, and the rest is history. We have hosted over 175 weddings at our venue. We are very well established and cannot wait to share our venue with your family and friends. We hope that The Loft is where memories are made and dreams come true.
