Autumn Oaks Construction Update
We are getting anxious to get Autumn Oaks Event Center opened. It seems like it was a lifetime ago that we actually broke ground on our new adventure. As with any building project, there have been a few bumps in the road and more than a few delays, but for the most part it has been a great experience! When you spend more than a year planning and talking about a project you are passionate about, it is fun to finally see that the end is near. Our wedding venue is nearly complete.
Our Awesome Contractors
We are in the last stages of getting everything done. The parking lot is starting to take shape thanks to Dave. It’s a work in progress but will eventually come together. The painting is nearly done, thanks to Tony and Gilbert. They are the best! We feel so lucky to have them working on this project. Our trim guys, Gary and Clark are working hard on getting the trim all in. The lockers have been built and installed in the Grooms room and the vanity has been installed in the Bridal Suite. Everything looks GREAT! Our wonderful electrician, Mike, has been working non stop to help get the venue up and running. What a blessing he has been! This past week, we had guys out there putting rock on the pillars and they were doing a super job. Monday, Robert will start tiling both restrooms and believe it or not, I am excited because that means we are one step closer to getting our Wedding/ Event Center completed and opened. Finally, we have been very lucky to have our son-in-law Matt help manage and guide this project. Lance and I can’t thank him enough. We’ve been lucky to find many great contractors in Lubbock, TX and we are so thankful for each of them!
Advertising Our Venue
We have been working hard the past few months promoting Autumn Oaks Event Center through social media. Most of the credit goes to my daughter, Cortnee, and my daughter-in-law Caitlan. They have done a great job staying on top of things. Our Facebook account has been the busiest. We’ve got nearly 1,000 likes thanks to many of you sharing our page and our posts. 1,000 was our goal before we opened, and we think we will definitely get there! We’ve also been posting updates on Twitter and Instagram, so be sure to follow us on those as well! Our Pinterest is filled with awesome ideas on wedding planning and wedding decor.
The interest in our venue has been overwhelming. We are pleased to say that for the past couple of weeks, we have been scheduling tours and showing the venue! This has kept us very busy, and we couldn’t be more pleased. VERY EXCITING!!!!! If you would like a private tour, please feel free to send us an email or give us a call. We would love to hear from you.
