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

My wife and I had the privilege of working with Gilda McDaniel to coordinate our wedding in April at the Fearrington. While we had heard nothing but rave reviews, Gilda far exceeded our expectations. Gilda had the knowledge, commitment, organization, innovative thinking, creativity and communication skills to take our vision and turn it into a reality. Gilda not only cared about what we wanted our dream wedding to look like, but she also truly cared about Lauren and I as a couple. She did an incredible job balancing between supportive advice and execution. Our wedding day would not have turned out to be the best day of our lives without Gilda. What we feel most fortunate for, however, is knowing that we have a new friend in our lives. Gilda sets the standard for wedding coordinators and we would refer her to anyone looking to have a seamless wedding at the Fearrington.

MARY STEVENS (Florist)
My wife and I also had the privilege of working with Mary Stevens, who designed and produced all the flowers for our wedding in April at the Fearrington. After meeting Mary, it was obvious that she had all the ingredients you could ever want in a Florist: passion, care, creativity, organization and the ability to execute. Beyond that, it was obvious how important bringing our vision to life was to her. So much so that the day after our wedding Mary was in tears when hearing my wife say the flowers were everything she could have imagined. It’s not often you find people that are willing to invest their absolute all into a product, and it’s even more rare to find someone that cares about the final outcome as much as the customer. Our vision was by no means easy to put together, but Mary made it look easy. She listened designed and executed everything flawlessly at every stage. Our wedding was the best day of our lives in large part because of Mary Stevens, and for that we will forever be grateful. Mary is an incredible florist, creative artist and an even better person.
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.
