Project Spotlight: Sparrow Beginnings

Rendering of Sparrow Beginning's new building

Nestled on thirty acres of Stillwater countryside, Sparrow Beginnings is the creation of Shelby Howerton, Jessica Sutton, and Katie Barlow with their mom, Susan Hartford. The romantic wedding venue was inspired by their struggles of finding the perfect venues for their own weddings. To accommodate different tastes, Sparrow Beginnings offers fifteen ceremony locations of patios, gardens, cottages, sunrise and sunset locations and more.

When the Hartfords decided to establish a wedding venue, they went to Kevin Fowler, a Bank SNB banker and old friend of Susan. Kevin was able to offer a construction and permanent loan to help build all the cottages and buildings on the property. For treasury management services and credit cards, the Hartfords have been working with banker, Bruce Webber.

Sparrow Beginnings’ construction is still underway and expects to host their first wedding in January of 2017.
