    Fantastic experience with Gilda and the Fearrington Team for a flawless weekend weekend

    Booking this venue was the best and most important decision we made for our wedding. I cannot say enough good things about The Fearrington and the people that work here. Our families truly felt that this venue was the absolute best venue in the broader Triangle area (maybe even in the state??).

    First off, this venue is idyllic. Many of our guests who came from out of town remarked on how beautiful the area was. The gardens are stunning. The barn is a perfect event space for a large group. The Inn is the epitome of Southern hospitality. The entire village is quiet and peaceful. There are adorable cows in the backdrop. In short, the venue was both extremely elegant and very approachable. We think this made guests from all walks of life feel very comfortable in the space.

    Second, the food is absolutely incredible. This was important for us and a big reason that we chose The Fearrington (which has an acclaimed restaurant on the property). We wanted everyone to have a delicious meal and to eat their fill. We opted for the classic reception with different stations (the three we chose were the Beef Station, the Seafood Station, and the Southern Station). This was ideal for accommodating a variety of dietary restrictions and food preferences. At our cocktail hour, everyone was raving about the hors d'oeuvres. And after the cake, many guests remarked that they’ve never had wedding cake (or any cake for that matter) that was so delicious.

    Third, the wedding coordinator, Gilda, is one of the most competent, fantastic humans we have ever met. Gilda has clearly put “10,000 hours” in to hone her craft, which is to make your wedding day run as beautifully and smoothly as possible. Her attention to detail is remarkable. Gilda and her staff have thought of everything from water stations at the ceremony to attendants that bustle your dress. On the day of our wedding, Gilda procured safety pins for my mother-in-law and individual fans for some of our guests. She was a perfect combination of very calming but clear and direct. It was so easy for us to put our trust in Gilda to just make the day fantastic, which it truly was. We can’t say enough positive things about Gilda, especially when it came to her generosity and understanding about moving our initial wedding date in the middle of the pandemic.

    Fourth, hosting a wedding at The Fearrington is so much smoother than at many comparable locations because they do so much of the organization and planning in house. After seeing friends DIY their weddings, we knew we didn’t want that stress on the wedding day. The Fearrington makes it as stress-free as humanly possible to host a big event. From the flowers to the food to the décor, they can do just about everything. For external vendors, Gilda gave us recommendations for preferred vendors, which is how we found excellent people like our photographer (Krystal Kast) and our DJ (Willis Entertainment). On our wedding date, we didn’t need to leave the village the entire day. We had delicious brunch at the Fearrington restaurant, got ready in a spacious bridal suite, and walked out to the gardens for the ceremony. It was just about as smooth and painless as possible for a large wedding.

    Fifth and finally, there were endless small touches that Gilda and her team thought about that made things feel so special. After our wedding, as my husband and I walked back to our room, I said to him, “That was perfect, but the one thing I regret is that I didn’t get the cake because we were too busy dancing.” When we opened the door to the bridal suite, we were shocked to see that Gilda had left us a few wrapped slices of cake and a bottle of prosecco!!

    It was A++++ quality and service all around, and we feel so grateful to Gilda and the entire team at the Fearrington for giving us the best day of our lives.

    Simple and Elegant

    Everything we needed was there, except a DJ and the photographer.

    The food was AMAZING. The desserts were exquisite. Gilda and her team had everything covered. She helped to keep the wedding timeline moving and I didn’t feel like I needed to try and take care of things. She and her team had it all.
