Born and raised in the Mid-Ohio Valley, Heidi and her husband, Kris, live in the quiet town of Newport, Ohio. Heidi currently works at the Washington County Career Center as a Compliance & Workforce Development Manager and Kris is a Plumber and Pipe Fitter in Local 168. Kris and Heidi both love spending time with friends and family as well as enjoying the great outdoors.
White Pine Acres has been a dream of Alissa’s and Heidi’s for quite some time. They have personally seen the need for a large event center in the Marietta, Ohio area. When looking for a rustic wedding venue to hold more than 250 guests for their own personal weddings, the selection in the area was very small and local venues booked up very quickly. Alissa and Heidi have received positive feedback from people within the community who also felt that there was a need for a large wedding/event center in our area. Their goal is to not only provide a beautiful, top-of-the-line event center for their community, but to also attract out of town residents to the beautiful city of Marietta. They hope to develop close working relationships with other local small businesses in order to meet the needs of their customers.
The vision for White Pine Acres is to provide the community with a new, beautiful venue option for weddings, holiday parties, family reunions, baby and bridal showers, concerts, and any other gatherings—large or small.
