Big R Orchards - Wedding and Event Venue is a beautiful new venue located on top of Brushy Mountain in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains near Wilkesboro, NC. Situated on 145 acres of family owned land, this venue is located on a working apple & peach orchard with a 6 acre lake and a golf green peninsula.
The new "barn" is sided and trimmed with exotic wood from New Zealand. The windows are hand-made. The bridal suite is spacious and elegant with over 1000 square feet of space. The bride's suite has a private bathroom and hair and makeup stations. There is a full commercial caterer's kitchen with separate entrance, public bathrooms, and grooms suite. All of the rooms have heating and air conditioning (2400 square feet total). The open but covered grand hall is almost 4000 square feet with 2 huge chandeliers, Edison string lights, and post lights. There is a 1760 square foot dance floor with string fairy lights.
The venue/orchard would be available for bridal pictures on the grounds by appointment. The furniture is all new. There are 200 pewter chiavari chairs with ivory cushions, 200 white folding resin chairs, 30 60" round tables (seats 8 ), 4 8' rectangular tables, and 10 30" round cocktail tables. The daily rental cost of the tables & chairs provided is almost $2500 per day if rented separately through a rental company. And, at most rental companies, pewter chiavari chairs aren't even an option and they are gorgeous! We also have a few other decorations such as a wooden arch, vintage wooden bushel apple crates, vintage apple grading tables, a photo booth made from apple pallets, 12 wine barrels (6 are used as trash cans), and tiki torches - no extra charge if you'd like to use any of that on your special day. Also included, shuttle services for elderly & special needs guests during the event to and from the barn to the green.
Please message us to set-up a day and time to tour this truly special place! We are managed by a husband and wife team and family owned.
