Meet Barbara Stalnaker
ntire life and a Wedding Coordinator on the side for 18 years. Coordinated Weddings at the Don Cesar, The Vinoy, Carrollwood Country Club, Palma Ceia Golf and Country Club. Avila Golf and Country Club, and various other smaller Venues. I opened Covington Farm in 2017. I looked at over 35 Venues from Sarasota to Ocala with my nephew and his fiance. He wanted a Church Wedding, she wanted an elegant, chic Barn Venue. We could not find anything elegant, chic, and airconditioned. I was building a horse barn at the time for our Thoroughbred racehorse to birth, and raise her offspring, house them, as well as hay, and host potential buyers. When we were unable to find anything suitable for my nephew and his fiance', I decided to add on to the Barn and make it over the top amazing. Couples began to book immediately. I am an animal lover, I have a Morkie named Scruffy, so I encourage couples to have their furbabies in their Save the Date photos, and even at the Wedding! I have horses, mini horses, a donkey, and 3 Baby Doll Sheep, all, including Scruffy are rescues. am also a plant, flower, and nature lover. I have certified butterfly gardens where we have host plants for the butterflies to lay their eggs, nectar flowers for them to feed, and sites for them to hatch. I am also an Apiarist, also know as a Beekeeper. I have beehives, we maintain, provide flowers for the colonies, and harvest fresh, non-pasteurized honey.
