Meet Evalina hill huckaby... faith-filled, creative designer, & all types of photo junkie.

I am a lovingkindness & gospel sharing believer, wife, mom, & treasure seeker of all things beautiful.

In 2021 - after 24 years of being in Textiles Sales & Design - I am making my dreams come true by launching Sanctuaire Atelier. Sanctuaire Atelier (French for Sanctuary Studio) is a boutique destination for you to make your dreams come true too with the backdrop of nature, an urban chic warehouse for weddings and gatherings of all types, and a cozy cottage to get away to.

I pray that I can partner with other creative souls & share my love of making people smile, focusing on details that are WOW worthy, and curating special events that will lead to memories that will last a lifetime.

I welcome you and your loved ones to enjoy our countryside retreat to find the perfect sanctuary experience.

Say "Hi!" to Kara Hendrix! Kara is part of the Sanctuaire Atelier team handling the marketing & social media, lots of creative set ups for our special events and ad campaigns, and keeps the day to day operations smooth.

What is her favorite part of Sanctuaire Atelier? "It's never a boring job - everything changes each day. Decorating for the events and being outside where it is so peaceful is a bonus too!"

“Sanctuaire Atelier is the most beautiful venue!! I got married here this past weekend & it was gorgeous, seriously the most perfect day. Our ceremony was in the field & our reception was held at the studio warehouse. My girls & I got ready in an adorable side room in the warehouse & the guys at the cottage. Evalina is amazing & went above and beyond to bring my dreams to reality. We got many compliments from our guests. We stayed in the pretty cottage 2 nights & it’s the perfect little escape.”

Evalina went above and beyond to help my fiancé, and make our night so special! She took amazing pictures for us, and caught all of the special moments! She also welcomed us to the cottage with flowers, wine, candles, breakfast, and snacks!! The evening could not have been better!”

“We used the warehouse for my Mom's 86th birthday celebration. It had everything we needed and more. Besides being beautifully decorated, it is a functional space with plenty of room to move about for a large crowd, and it is super comfortable! Evalina is a wonderful host that makes everyone feel right at home with her easy way and southern hospitality.”

—Jenny O.

“We just returned from a weekend trip & stayed at the Cottage- WOW! Amazing property & true Southern hospitality at its finest! Evalina is truly the most incredible host! The property is beautifully landscaped & has photo props throughout the grounds to create gorgeous backdrops for pictures. The warehouse/event center is decorated so nicely & makes the perfect place to host showers, birthday parties, & small group reception events! We had a very nice time & plan to visit again when we are back in town!”

—Elizabeth L.

“We had our first visit to Sanctuaire Atelier this past weekend & it was lovely! We spent the day roaming the beautiful grounds, taking family and friend photos on the swings, in front of the quaint cottage, & hidden in the middle of several groups of trees. Love the Mediterranean feel of the rolling hills & the way the estate is decorated. So glad we stayed from morning until dusk because the changing light made excellent pictures with all of these scenic backgrounds. We plan to return soon for pet photos!”

—Paige & Eric

“"Her venue is open to several types of events and can be set up to accommodate both indoor and outdoor festivities. Evalina is super hospitable and can help with setting the space with various carefully selected furnishings and decor pieces to create the right look!"”

—DChristine Events, LLC

“What a perfect way to spend the day with my father on a Spring afternoon. I will treasure these photos forever!”
