We got married at Covered Bridge Farms at the end of October and everything was absolutely beautiful. Wayne and Arleene went above and beyond to make sure everything turned out perfectly and our vision was captured! The property has so much beauty and made incredible photos. We got married under the covered bridge and had a tented reception on the property. Everyone had a blast. The fall leaves were the icing on the cake. Wayne and Arleene are two of the sweetest people and made the entire process so easy and stress free. I would recommend Covered Bridge over and over again!!Sent on 12/02/2018

The venue is just breathe taking and they are both so helpful and courteous. I would hesitate for one second to recommend this location to anyone who is wanting to get married there. It was what we wanted and more.
Thank you again Arlene and Wayne. We now think of as you part of the family :)

What a great location - a lovely destination venue with easy access on paved, country roads to open meadows with pond, gazebo, covered bridge over a major stream and gardens tucked here and there for a perfect setting. The owners are most accomodating for your needs large or small. Murphy, NC is easy driving distance from Asheville, Chattanooga, north Atlanta, and other cities - the escape to the rolling mountains is delightful.Sent on 02/08/2018

A beautiful location and Arleene Ward couldn't be nicer. She is a true Southern hostess. The space is versatile and well kept. Perfect for weddings up to 300. I can't wait to work with Arleene in October.
I was able to tour this lovely venue today. I can't get over how beautiful it is! With its superb landscaping and mountain view, it would make the perfect backdrop couples to say "I do".
