Gilby and I chose KHC for many reasons. The building reminds me of my home growing up, which was on a small farm in North Carolina. The front porch of my parents’ house is similar to the porch of the hunt club – that seems like an odd thing to notice but it made me feel like I was at home on our wedding day. Also, much like the hunt club, my parents’ house is an old farm cottage and has lots of imperfections. Gilby and I wanted a place that was relaxed, quiet, outdoors, a place that wouldn’t be a distraction or something we aren’t. I liked that the back of the building had old coolers, some trash cans, a grill, and of course the kennels for the foxhounds. The place actually seemed real, as opposed to the perfectly groomed events that are quite stunning, but really not our style.
