A Bit About Me
Hi there, I'm Blake, and I'm thrilled to share my story and that of Willow Falls, a place that holds a very special place in my heart. Let me share a little about myself and the deep-rooted connection I have with this property.
My mother raised my siblings and I in Hendersonville, NC, a place that I proudly call home. Graduating from Hendersonville High School in the class of 2000, I nurtured lifelong friendships, dedicated myself to academic achievements, and kindled a fervent passion for athletics, particularly in the sports of pole vaulting and soccer. These formative years established deep roots in this town that continues to shape my life.
My professional journey led me to establish Synergy Event Solutions, a corporate events production company dedicated to crafting unforgettable experiences nationwide. Additionally, I ventured into the wonderful world of weddings with Rollin' Retro, a unique concept where a 1966 Volkswagen Bus was transformed into a photobooth, adding a touch of vintage charm to celebrations. Through these ventures, I've honed my skills in creating magical moments and ensuring that every event is as exceptional as the stories they celebrate.
In 2007 my path to love took a delightful twist when I met my beloved wife through one of my dearest friends. We shared a common bond as college cheerleaders and even taught summer camps together, solidifying our love for teamwork and unity. Today, we are blessed with two adorable baby boys who fill our lives with immeasurable joy. Our hope is to nurture their spirits with the same love for the great outdoors that I experienced growing up in Western NC.
Willow Falls is not just a wedding venue; it's a cherished part of my family's history. This remarkable property was our family home, a place where countless memories were forged. It's the place where my mother married my stepfather, and it's also where I embarked on my own journey of love and commitment by marrying my wife. Today, I am deeply honored to continue the legacy my mother created by offering Willow Falls as a place for couples to celebrate their own love stories.
Being in the business of celebrating love and togetherness is truly extraordinary. I am deeply touched by the love stories we witness and the joy we help create. It's our sincere hope that the warmth and magic of these moments will foster a sense of unity and connection within our community.
