The Fearrington is a breath-taking venue and should be considered as a first choice for wedding rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony and reception venue. Our daughter's wedding was a grand success and all our guests raved about the beauty of the The Fearrington and its surroundings; the lovely accommodations; the high-quality food; the deluxe spa; the wedding planner extraordinaire (Gilda McDaniel), who had everyone and everything completely under control at all times and thought of absolutely everything; the beautiful flowers by Mary Stevens of The Fearrington; the gorgeous AND delicious cake by The Fearrington's own pastry chef; and the courteousness of the staff. This is a TOP NOTCH venue and we are grateful to The Fearrington and its staff for making this an unforgettable experience.Sent on 03/19/2018

Gilda at Fearrington was absolutely amazing. There was never a glitch or stress moment in the planning process at all. I described my perfect wedding to her, and it was exactly what I received. From the planning, to the tables at the reception, to the fireplace behind us at the ceremony, to the day of getting ready. Everything was so easy. Fearrington is such a cozy environment, and the barn is absolutely stunning! Our wedding was over a month ago and people are still raving about how perfect everything was and to do it again! I am SO happy with my choice and couldn't imagine my wedding anywhere else!!!

Gorgeous Venue + Amazing On-Site Coordination = Unforgettable Day
Fearrington was by far our first choice for wedding venue, and we loved that they could accommodate both our ceremony and reception, making the day itself seamless for the wedding party and guests! We were planning our wedding from abroad, but working with Fearrington's on-site coordinator, Gilda McDaniel, was such a pleasure. She was responsive, straightforward, but also incredibly helpful in guiding us through all of our questions in planning the wedding, sharing her expertise and years of experience. Between the Garden Terrace for the ceremony and Barn for the reception, we were prepared for any type of weather. Even though we had our wedding in the heat of early August, guests loved having the chance to explore the gardens and check out the belties! We were also thrilled with the station setup we chose - the restaurant was able to prepare off-menu options for guests, and is generally well-known in the area for its top-notch food. We are still receiving compliments from our guests. Finally, the staff was incredibly helpful - Fearrington provided the cake and flowers, both of which helped make our wedding the amazing day it was! I would wholeheartedly recommend the venue and only wish the day hadn't flown by as quickly as it did.
The Fearrington is one of my favorite wedding venues! If you are looking for a quant, romantic spot full of Southern charm than look no further! The staff is very helpful and they make the wedding day run smoothly. Leah Marie Photography + Stationery
We have provided transportation for many events at the Fearrington, mainly weddings! The location is quite simply magical, which makes for some of the most breathtakingly gorgeous weddings I have ever seen. Not only that, but their restaurant is delicious and great for rehearsal dinners- especially if you're a fan of chocolate soufflé! The team at Fearrington is amazing to work with and their events are are beautiful and run very smoothly. You won't regret choosing them. They're the best around!
Fearrington is a knock out venue in every aspect. The staff is professional and cares about each and every event. They are always prepared and ready to go, creating a smooth and non stressful day. The gardens are beautiful and a wonderful place to play music. I can't think of a more elegant setting. If the weather is an issue they have the beautiful Garden Terrace where everyone is comfortable, yet still able to enjoy the lovely setting of Fearrington.
