Quality of Service

My daughter had her wedding at Fairview Farm in October and it was beyond our wildest dreams when it all came together. She was simply glowing the whole day and everyone there was raving about the beauty of the farm. It was so special for her and the family to have the venue for the whole weekend and be able to really spend quality time with family and her out of town bridesmaids. Blanton and his staff were do accommodating and I know my wedding planners enjoyed working with him. This is a large event venue and provides for so many special places for pictures as well as for family and friends to sit and visit. The house is just beautiful and we chose to have the ceremony on the front lawn facing the silo. It was a windy fall day at sunset but the colors in the sky from the setting sun were just beautiful. We also chose to have the bridesmaid luncheon in the barn the day before the wedding and that provided another very special memory for the wedding party. I had so many compliments from friends and family on how beautiful and unique the wedding was and even had 2 young girls tell me they wanted a wedding just like that when the time comes. Thanks so much to Debra, Blanton and the whole staff for working with to not only make my daughters dreams come true but also to patiently work with a strong willed son-in-law who also wanted to be involved in going the extra mile to make sure everything was perfect ( and even a little over the top) for him and his bride. ( I wish there was a way to rate this 10 stars as I'm sure there is not another place on earth that provides a better setting for an outdoor farm or rustic country barn wedding.... I have a sneaky feeling we will be back to plan another wedding there in the future !! )

Fairview Farm is a new rustic chic barn venue in the heart of central Virginia.  2014 was our first wedding season and we provide a fully furnished venue where burlap meets lace and they are living happily ever after.  Fairview Farm was a dairy farm for almost sixty years and has vintage barns on the property.  It has been owned by the same family for 100 years who want to preserve the beauty of the farm and share it with families who want to start their lives in comfortable yet upscale surroundings..  We are located near Richmond VA on a one hundred fifteen acre rolling hill estate and have attracted couples from all over the state and beyond as we are only one hour from the Richmond airport.

In celebration of our first year of success, we are added a 40 X 60 rustic chic pavilion that has three large chandeliers, bistro lighting and more.  We found that tents are not representative of our venue and we wanted to keep with the theme of our country farm so couples of 2015 will have a beautiful pavilion that accommodates up to 245 guests and can be used for the rehearsal, the reception and ceremony and has beautiful views of nearby National Historic Landmark, Blenheim, which is also a family owned black angus cattle farm.

The views have been described as breathtaking by our brides and grooms who quickly reserved the farm for 2014 and 2015.  We are a destination wedding venue where our couples prefer our relaxed weekend package and we also provide a Sunday Day of option which can include an overnight stay for up to fourteen in the wedding party.  Recently due to demand we have added a mid-week overnight option.

 What makes Fairview Farm a destination wedding venue is when you get here you won't have to leave.  All vendors come to you. The large two story cedar barn has a three foot massive Italian chandelier hanging over thirty feet in the air in its center.  When couples reserve their weekend it starts on Friday noon until Sunday at 10:00 a.m. and includes a large six bedroom renovated farm home for the bridal party and a large game room building for the groomsmen and for the rehearsal.  We are adding an optional large pavilion for weddings in 2015.

Fairview's barn has loft seating, incredible views from the upper deck of the distant Lynchburg mountain range and we have a large five acre pond on the property with a fountain, dock and gazebo for photos.  We have a large stamped concrete side porch, a 900 square foot patio for a tent if desired, other chandeliers, ceiling fans, ADA compliant restrooms, chandeliers, a large stone corner fireplace,and stunning views from every window and doorway.  Our barn is completely furnished with  antique farm tables and early chairs which are included in our package, barrel serving tables with black walnut tops, a 70" TV for your slideshow.  As a bonus we provide an old red 1956 Ford pick up, 1 1920's stenciled hay wagon from the 1920's and a 1947 old red tractor for photos on the property..  We save you thousands in rental fees for our free accessories that we include in our packages. 

We have several preferred caterers to select from who provide savings to Fairview Farm couples as we pass the savings of not catering on to our couples who reserve the farm.  Bottled Beer and wine-six selections for 2016 is $7.95 for an entire evening per person and open bar is only $5 more.   Our barn is decorated by season, down to the lace linen toppers for our antique tables an mason jar arrangements and we do encourage our brides to add personal touches.

Fairview Farms's,all Inclusive weekend venue package includes our 1915 large renovated Farmhouse, (we are not a B & B, we just feel like one) with six bedrooms, large decks, a stone patio,  pergolas,  wraparound porches. It has a bridal suite wing with separate dressing room, large bath with Jacuzzi,  a side entrance with deck overlooking the large pond and more.    We have combined the perfect  blend of old meets new with tastefully appointed decorations.  

Our families who have reserved our  farm call us their home away from home as we offer a relaxing family oriented experience.  The stone fire pit will take the chill out of the air and the many touches provide the charm you would expect from a rustic chic wedding venue. When you get here you won't have to leave!  There are many different areas to exchange vows at Fairview Farm and we don't charge extra for our ceremony sites.

Families from all over the United States have discovered us.   We are the perfect venue for families who are coming together for your all important occasion.  Bear Creek Lake State Park is just minutes away where guests and the groomsmen can stay where there is a six bedroom lodge with large stone fireplace  and 13 lovely cottages that are perfect for the rustic chic wedding you have dreamed and hotel accommodations nearby.   Your wedding should be savored not rushed.

A unique feature of Fairview Farm  is our large 1200 square foot separate building with pool, ping pong, air hockey, bar, fridge, swivel cable TV-Wi-fi, jukebox and more and it is for the rehearsal and the groomsmen the day of the wedding-they love it!   We treat our couple equally and with the same affection.
