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 with antique farm tables and chairs and are possibly the only venue who includes all these extras in their packages in Virginia. We have create a full service package which includes the home for a weekend or Sunday wedding which is Full Service and includes for up to 150 guests for the weekend, with catering, DJ and Event planner and the package has been described as amazing by our couples from all over the nation.

Some of which we include is our antique 1951 completely restored red Ford pick is just one of the many props that are just part of the experience at Fairview Farm.  Our preferred caterers provide our couples with complimentary silver, bone china, stemware as well as discounted alcohol and provide a menu to suit your palate and budget. Ceremony seating and  sites are included as well as the  large farmhouse is yours for the weekend for up to fourteen in the bridal party and we have plans for additional lodging. Fairview Farm is a one hundred year old family owned estate and has vintage barns on the property for wonderful photos.

We have been described by our couples who quickly reserved our farm  as relaxing but beautiful and our couples say we have thought of everything to make a rustic chic country farm wedding perfect. Selected as the Couple Choice Award recipient by Wedding Wire for 2014 and 2015, we are located near Richmond VA on a one hundred fifteen acre rolling hill estate and have attracted couples from all over the nation as we are only one hour from the Richmond airport and conveniently located for travelers.

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 estate, 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 cattle farm.  Chandeliers, bistro lighting, and more are included with our pavilion. We are also the only venue in central Virginia, that provides a separate game room building we call "Manland" which is a great for the night of the rehearsal and is exclusive to the groomsmen the day of!

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 weekday 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.   

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.  Also included are three barrel serving tables with black walnut tops, a 70" TV for your slideshow.   We save couples  thousands in rental fees with our free accessories that we include in our packages. 

Our barn is decorated by season, down to the lace linen toppers for our antique tables and mason jar professional arrangements by season and we do encourage our brides to add personal touches if they prefer.  Our goal is to provide an inviting country estate farm option for couples who want something different than a plantation or winery experience, we are all about the rustic chic farm and Virginia's rolling hills with magnificent views.

Fairview Farm's all Inclusive weekend venue package includes our 1915 large renovated Farmhouse 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 include our ceremony sites.

Fairview Farm is 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 16 lovely cottages for 2016 that are perfect for the rustic chic wedding you have dreamed and  we also have hotel accommodations nearby.  We believe weddings should be a reflection of family and shouldn't be rushed.

A unique feature of Fairview Farm  is our large 1200 square foot separate game room  building called "Manland" with pool table, 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 couples equally and with the same affection.
