    They've become family to us

    I don't even know where to begin. I have never written a review before but Debbie, Blanton, Colon and Maria at Fairview Farm made such an incredible impact on our lives that there was no way I could not share my experience and hope to help future couples have their dream wedding like we did.

    We were very tight on our budget and Debbie was so understanding and respectful of that. We went with the premiere weekend package but the date we had chosen was a weekday. They wanted us to have our dream wedding and created a "Weekday Wedding Weekend Package" for us so that we could still enjoy everything their standard weekend package had to offer but on a weekday. All of our family and friends were out of state, so they wanted us to be able to have them stay on site too. They worked so hard with us to find us the right vendors and give us the wedding we were hoping for. They were always so transparent with us from the start so you always felt you were getting an honest opinion or an honest recommendation.

    One of the biggest things, however, was their responsiveness when things did NOT go as planned. We had a wedding date in January but my husband and I both got COVID just 6 days before the wedding and had to postpone it. Fairview responded so quick to this. I messaged the wedding planner for the venue (Chelsea Moring, also an absolute gem) and she immediately reached out to Fairview. By the time I called Fairview myself to give them the news, they had already gone through their calendar and had two potential dates within 2-3 months that they were prepared to move the wedding to. They helped me figure out what to do next in moving the date and they comforted me because it was heartbreaking to be that close to the wedding and to have family already getting into town only to have to put a pause on that excitement.

    They treated us like family from the start and took care of us as they would their own family. They made our wedding everything we had hoped it would be. And our families and friends? They could not stop showering the venue with compliments. It really was a dream to have Fairview for our wedding. So yes, I HIGHLY recommend them!

    A wonderful day

    Debbie and Blanton couldn't have been nicer to work with! They went out of their way to make sure our daughter's wedding was perfect. The farm looked beautiful with a dusting of snow and everything went smoothly from start to finish. If you are looking for an authentic rustic-chic atmosphere, this is the place to go.

We recently designed flowers for a summer wedding at Fairview Farms and the venue is beautiful, private and spacious all wrapped up in one . Great large area for the Bridal Gals and the men would just go crazy for the area where they can hang. One of a kind !
