In 2015, we were trying to plan our own wedding and there was one thing that was so evident...North Mississippi did not have a venue that offered a space that could be either natural and rustic, or elegant and formal. It seemed that all we could find was one or the other. Another challenge we kept facing was that venue pricing in the Memphis area was just more expensive than we wanted to spend. Yes...I'll admit it...I'm frugal! But I kept telling Ron, why should we have to spend so much for a place to say "I do"!
So, we know first hand how difficult it is to find a beautiful venue that offers both Indoor and Outdoor ceremony options, plus a dedicated Reception Hall, plus one that includes needed tables and chairs, and especially one that maintains a budget friendly price. That's exactly why we created Kincaid Manor for you. We wanted to offer a beautiful space to couples that just want to be sensible with their budget. Just because you have the money, doesn't mean you have to spend it, right?
Sherry and Ron Goodwin
For those wondering where we got the name for our beautiful wedding venue, it all started a long time ago, in a land far, far away. No wait...wrong story. The name Kincaid is actually my maiden name. I was born as Sherry Weeks, but my step-father loved me so much, he adopted me at 12 years old. Yes, 12! He was an amazing father and I was the little girl he never had. Spoiled? Maybe. Ok, yes definitely! He was the one who taught me that I could do anything I ever put my mind to. He was my biggest cheerleader, supporter, father and friend. I lost my dad to cancer in 2010 and my heart is still devastated over that loss. When we found this property, all I could think was he would be so proud of me for stepping outside my comfort zone and being brave enough to tackle this project. He would have been pushing me to do it...to follow my dream of owning and running a wedding venue. In his honor, we named our quaint little venue, Kincaid Manor.
So, this property and business is dedicated my father, John William "Bill" Kincaid. I love you dad, and still miss you terribly.
