About Us

Welcome to Arks Landing, a premier wedding and event venue!

a bit of history

Arks Landing was established 43 years ago by owner/operator Katharyn Freeman, out of a desire for animal rescue, she has expanded the gorgeous property and home into the premier waterfront wedding and event location it is today! 


The main house, built in 1910, was remodeled to emulate the antebellum style mansion Tara, from Gone With The Wind.

Katharyn & Kendall Freeman

Ms. Freeman has a vast and lengthy resumé. After earning both an B.A. and M.A., she pursued and attained both a pilot’s and real estate license. She spent years in the corporate world in sales, management, and as an account executive for a large California based conglomerate. 


Desiring to spend more time on her farm, she turned to teaching and years later she retired, upon the birth of her daughter, now business partner, Kendall Freeman.


The younger Ms. Freeman has worked in the country club and restaurant industry for over 10 years, and is well versed in all aspects of presentation.

Arks Landing as a Venue

Weddings began 31 years ago, for one of Katharyn's students, and continue to the present. They have expanded their repertoire to also include company & church picnics, graduation, birthday, & retirement parties, reunions, and vow renewal ceremonies!


The 30 beautiful acres, 2,000 feet of glorious waterfront, rustic pier, and lovely mimosa grove offer a variety of event locations to choose from. The amazing sunsets from this property have no parallel! There are also several gazebos, arbors, and furnishings available that provide for picturesque photo opportunities. 


A quaint, furnished Bride's Suite allows the chance for relaxation and last minute preparation for your big day. The reception field, plumbed and wired for water and electric, affords you waterfront views, substantial room for tent placement, and plenty of parking for your event guests.
