A Letter From The Owners

Welcome to our special place. 

Pinewood Retreat is our home. It's where we live, work and raise our family. We got engaged here and married here. 

Our story began in Jamaica while Sarah was working a destination wedding and Clayton was the best man. 

When the time came, we decided to pursue a dream together that had been in the making for over two decades through Sarah's experience as a Nashville wedding planner and florist since 2005.


We wanted a special place where people could come and create memories and make it their special place. 

One day, Sarah got lost trying to find another farm and happened upon what is now Pinewood Retreat. 

Together, we renovated the entire property in five weeks and hosted our first wedding in the fall of 2019.  

We would sincerely appreciate the opportunity to serve you and make this your special place. 

Grateful to serve, 

Clayton & Sarah Barker
