About Us


Our Story

Thank you for visiting The Venue at Murphy Lane and considering us for your special day. We moved from Peachtree City, Georgia to this breathtaking countryside estate in Newnan, Georgia in July 2016 with the sole intent of opening a wedding and special events venue.  When we found this little gem, we realized we wanted to share the beautiful property with others and help our guests create unforgettable memories for their friends and family at Murphy Lane. 

Our guests become much more than clients, they become lifelong friends and together we seek to create a wondrous experience for each and every guest at Murphy Lane.  We look forward to meeting you and helping you create the wedding or special event of your dreams.

Our Vow

The best thing about Memories…is making them.

We promise to serve our clients and their guests with Southern hospitality and provide “The Murphy Lane Experience” for all.

Our Owners

Hank was a Delta pilot for 28 years.  He also owned a lawn care business.  He loves all things outdoors and works tirelessly to maintain the grounds at Murphy Lane. You may see Hank cutting grass on his John Deere tractor, pruning the shrubs, watering the plants, fertilizing the lawn or whatever needs to be done on the property.  He also loves meeting all the clients and visitors that tour the property.

Kara was a Fayette County educator for 24 years. She taught Kindergarten and 3rd grade for a large portion of her time as a teacher.  She loves all things social, especially making connections with others. You may see Kara meeting with clients, working on social media, planning with vendors, or organizing event staff.

Working together with their amazing staff, Hank and Kara offer genuine Southern hospitality to each and every guest.
