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’s 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’t 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 makes 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 fire pit, seating, and tiki torches. An ideal place to lounge in the sunshine, it’s 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’s more, lighting for both inside the barn and outside can be provided.

Make sure to check out the Midland House. It's a 1900's farm house, that we're completely restoring, and will be available starting Spring 2021! Sleeping up to 10 guests and just one minute from the Big Spring Barn, we now have the option of lovely overnight accommodations at the venue.

    Secluded, Peaceful, Picturesque

    This wedding venue is the whole package and more. The owners, Buddy and Jill, are so kind and helpful. We planned most our wedding ourselves and had a day-of coordinator (who was also amazing! - Em Eliz Events), so I had a million questions along the way. Their administrator, Kaila, was always prompt and thorough responding to my every concern. Buddy completed our walkthrough a month before the big day and put all my nerves at ease with his guidance and attention to detail. On our wedding morning, their team shuttled all of our cars to the parking lot and had their golf cart pick up every elderly guest at their cars. Their team was professional and it was all a well-oiled machine. We didn't have to worry about a thing. It's easy to find, minutes from the cute little town of Lexington, and near plenty of hotels/cabins. It is truly the most perfect wedding venue.

    Big Spring Farm's reply:

    Dream come true

    What words can I use to capture the dream that is Big Spring Farm? We visited just one venue and fell in love with it. When our guests asked why we picked Lexington, we told them to wait until they saw Big Spring Farm, and during the wedding they told me they understood. If you are looking for a natural oasis encircled by mountains and that includes a gorgeous barn that is the perfect balance of rustic and elegant, a beautiful large body of water, delicate willow trees, a fire pit, and acres and acres of lush green beauty-- don't look any further. Buddy and his team also provide for rent a GORGEOUS house on site for the bridal suite, as well as a breathtaking Airbnb they own 2 mins from the Farm-- I mean, it's the WHOLE package and it made my wedding the perfect day. Buddy and his team are kind, generous, flexible, and extremely communicative. They made us feel like family. We had a fusion Bangladeshi-Western wedding and he went out of his way to accommodate special arrangements to make the day our own. I will never forget that. Big Spring Farm is what dreams are made of, and Buddy and his team are the kindest, warmest, most wonderful team you could ask for. Trust me-- snag this gem up!!!

    Big Spring Farm's reply:

    Shayma I'm speechless, thank you for your kind words! It was such an honor for us to host your wedding and we're thankful you chose Big Spring Farm. Getting to work with such wonderful couples is what motivates us to keep going! Thanks again for having your wedding at the farm.
