This venue has five garden ceremony locations where couples can exchange their vows. These spaces include Jenny’s Garden, Willow Oaks, Pecan Trees, Crabapples and Dovecote Lawn. Many of these spaces include lush trees under which couples can begin their lives together. There are also wedding arches and arbors to beautifully frame couples in the gardens as they exchange vows.

It is not often that I am at a loss for words, but to try and write what an amazing and magical wedding that our daughter had recently at Fearrington is almost too much to describe. From the moment we booked the venue, until the last candle was extinguished at the send off, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect experience. Gilda McDonald is not only the most amazing event planner ever, but also became a friend to call for any questions or concerns. Her level of professionalism as well her fun and caring personality made our experience one we could enjoy without worrying about any detail. She is simply wonderful!! The ceremony on the terrace followed by the reception in the barn were truly what dreams are made of. Mary Stevens and her floral team transformed both spaces into a winter wonderland. She listened to what my daughter wanted and created designs far beyond our expectations. Again, we felt we made friends for life. All of our guest also commented that the food was the best they had ever had at a wedding. We agree!!! Every mother dreams that their daughter's wedding will be the most special day ever. Fearrington, and the staff helped make this dream come true.

Fearrington is a picture perfect venue for a wedding: numerous lovely lawns to choose from for a romantic garden ceremony, an equally lovely covered terrace in the event of rain, a spacious and attractive venue for receptions, replete with a lovely courtyard for outdoor cocktails, fantastic food, and a talented in-house florist, baker, and sommelier to expertly handle so many of the details. But the one greatest asset of Fearrington, bar none, goes by the name of Gilda McDaniel. Wedding coordinator extraordinaire, Gilda has a depth of experience rarely seen in this business. Her wisdom is outdone only by her patience, Zen calm, warmth, and professionalism. She makes a Fearrington wedding worth every penny. From our experience, Gilda can handle with aplomb just about any situation, and can provide free and reasonable advice on all aspects of the affair.

Professional Network & Endorsements

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.

I highly recommend them.
