Big Spring Farm is a barn and farm wedding venue located in Lexington, Virginia. Boasting a charmingly restored post and beam barn, acres of grounds, and ample scenic views of a lake and mountains, it is suitable for both indoor and outdoor celebrations.

Facilities and Capacity

For your romantic ceremony, you and your significant other can become official newlyweds outdoors with Big Spring Farm's beautiful surroundings as your backdrop. Under the shade of one of the lakeside trees, you can become officially married with the serene waterfront directly behind you. On the grass, the wedding party can take in the moment, seated on some lovely dark-wood chairs, as tree stumps with flower displays on them add natural color and fragrance.

All around, the site鈥檚 grounds provide a great deal of room for you and your guests to amble around and enjoy the scenery. On warm, sunny afternoons, the long grass, tended lawns, and windswept wilderness offers a variety of settings for photo opportunities. Just imagine you and your significant other indulging in some couples portraits with the yellow-green fields and dark-blue 10-acre lake as your backdrop. Wouldn鈥檛 that be something special?

With a rustic barn from the 1840s that has been heavily restored, you are provided with an ideal space to host your reception. The space measures some 2,000 square feet and can accommodate 150 seated guests. Here, long banquet-style and round tables can be arranged for everyone to sit at as they enjoy the cuisine of the day. When set with floral centerpieces, elegant plates, cutlery, and personal decor, it can truly become a customized space. The exposed wooden beams, natural light through the windows, and overall rustic ambiance, certainly make it stand out.

The barn can also work as a great place to host your indoor ceremony. Especially on days when the weather is not being cooperative, it provides shelter and makes it easier to transition to the reception space.

Outside the barn, there is a 4,000-square-foot patio with a fire pit, seating, and tiki torches. An ideal place to lounge in the sunshine, it鈥檚 easy to imagine yourself taking a moment of quiet contemplation here.

Services Offered

Big Spring Farm's staff are more than delighted for you to invite caterers onsite to prepare and serve your reception meal. In fact, they have a list of trusted caterers whom they can suggest to you. They also have a list of other vendors (florists, photographers, event rentals, calligraphers, and more) whom they can connect you with. Cleanup and setup services are both provided for you, while WiFi is also available to make use of. What鈥檚 more, lighting for both inside the barn and outside can be provided. Make sure to check out the Midland House, as well. It's a 1900's farm house, that we completely restored! Sleeping up to 10 guests and just one minute from the Big Spring Barn.

Beautiful Venue, Wonderful Experience

When our daughter got engaged and they told us they wanted to get married in Lexington, VA, I was concerned about managing a "destination" wedding because they live in southwest Virginia and we live in Hampton Roads. We didn't need to worry! During the planning process, Buddy welcomed us to visit Big Spring Farm as often as we wanted to get a vision of what they wanted for the rehearsal and wedding. He was open to my daughter and (now) son-in-law's ideas, and made suggestions to fit with their ideas. Kaila was great to work with -- she answered our questions and facilitated everything leading up to the wedding. The site itself cannot be beat! The spring is picturesque, the barn is beautiful, and the entire area made beautiful pictures. It's like Buddy and his team have thought of everything. Our daughter's ceremony was on the peninsula, dinner was in the tent and dancing was in the barn. Planning an outdoor wedding can be nerve-wracking, but because we had the barn as a backup ceremony site in case of rain, we didn't have to worry (and it didn't rain!) In addition to the setting and customer service provided by Buddy, Kaila, and the staff, it was such a pleasure to hear great things about Big Spring Farm from all of the vendors. They all seemed thrilled to work with Buddy and the staff at Big Spring Farm. Our wedding planner specifically mentioned how rare it is to work with a venue that serves its vendor so well. We could not have been more pleased with everything provided by Big Spring -- We had the rehearsal dinner at Big Spring, and we added the Bridal House and golf cart to our contract -- and we were so happy we did. We all highly recommend Big Spring Farm for your event -- whether it is big or small, you will be well taken care of!

Highly recommend!

Big Spring Farm was the venue of our dreams! There are so many gorgeous locations here that everywhere you turn feels like the perfect spot. We had toured numerous venues in the area but immediately knew after our tour with BSF that we were going to book it for our wedding. The staff is so incredibly accommodating and friendly and remained that way throughout the entire year and a half long planning process. The owner, Buddy, met personally with us for our tour and our final walkthrough which goes a long way to see how passionate he is about the venue and personally connecting with the clients.

Best Vendor!!

Big Spring Farm was the perfect venue for our wedding and the staff went above and beyond. Buddy, Emma, and Kaila checked in often, let us walk-through multiple times, and responded super fast to all of our questions. Buddy was there on the day of the event to help my husband setup and put everything in place. They are such an awesome family and are truly spectacular. Could not have been happier!!
