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.

Wedding of our dreams
My husband and I recently had our wedding at Big R Orchards ❤️. This venue is absolutely stunning and was the perfect fit for the rustic elegant theme we were going for. We had our ceremony in front of the pond, with the leaves changing colors it was the perfect backdrop for our October wedding. The reception area really glowed at night with all of the lights turned on and was so beautiful for our photos. My favorite part was getting ready in the bridal suite! There was tons of room for all of us to spread out our things and hang out together on the big day. Not to mention the decor is so dainty and pretty, and was great for getting ready pictures with my bridesmaids!! The owners were very professional and were absolutely wonderful to work with! They are beyond helpful and will do everything they can to make everything easier for you. I am so grateful that we chose Big R Orchards for our big day, it was absolutely magical and so much more than we could have hoped for❤️.Sent on 11/07/2019

I highly recommend Big R Orchards. The owners Scott and Angie are genuine and professional. They went above and beyond to make sure Chase and Emma had their dream wedding. So many guests commented on what a perfect place for a special day. Everything was absolutely amazing. From the bridal suite and grooms suite, to the reception area, dance floor, kitchen, lighting, and guest bathrooms was wonderful. The lake where the ceremony was held, was breathtaking! Scott, Angie, what you have achieved in your corner of the Brushy Mountains is nothing short of heavenly. I loved the peace and quiet, tranquility, and sense of being with nature. Thank you for everything to make Chase and Emma’s day so perfect!Sent on 11/10/2019

The BEST venue and owners!!
I could not praise this venue enough!! Scott was absolutely incredible and went above and beyond to help us have the wedding of our dreams! He and his wife were so kind and attentive to our vision and did whatever they could to make our wedding day exactly what we wanted. Everything about the venue is just absolutely breathtaking. From the waterfront ceremony site to the beautiful rustic barn, there are not enough words to describe just how perfect everything is. Both the bride and groom suites were so beautifully detailed and decorated and made for a perfect spot for our wedding party and family to get ready and store everything we needed. If you are thinking of getting married here - DO IT!! You will absolutely not regret it.Sent on 10/23/2019
