The most special place!
I have nothing but amazing things to say about Fearrington. Every part of the village feels like a fairy tale, it's full of life and color.Sent on 04/13/2020
The Fearrington team is absolutely OUTSTANDING, they truly have it down to a science. Gilda, Fearrington's event planner, is a machine. I've never seen one human manage to be in so many places at once. She is all business but cool, calm and collected at the same time.
Fearrington takes care of just about everything which makes the planning process so much easier - from flowers, to cake, to food and drink. My guests raved that it was the best reception food they've had by a long shot.
Fearrington really made my fairy tale wedding come true and they were lovely to work with the entire way. I'll be making trips back for years to come, it is such a special place!
Fearrington Village's reply:Thank you! We loved hosting you and your family and friends. Congratulations to you both. Here's wishing you both some time right now to really savor all the memories from your day. ♥

A dream wedding and experience
Working with the Fearrington was an absolute DREAM.
Not only is the venue itself gorgeous, every single person that we worked with went above and beyond to make our day special.
Gilda is a MAGICIAN when it comes to wedding planning. My husband and I joked that we never saw her the day of the wedding, except when we needed her, and she just popped up at the right time.
The cake was the best dessert I've ever tasted, the flowers were beautiful, and the FOOD WAS THE BEST WEDDING FOOD EVER. So many of our guests have raved about the food.
If you are lucky enough to snag a date at the Fearrington, please... do so. And stay on property.
I cannot wait to come back and celebrate our anniversaries at the Inn!Sent on 11/05/2019

Book your wedding here NOW!
Fearrington Village was the perfect place to get married on New Years Eve! Gilda was absolutely wonderful and made wedding planning easy! For the rehearsal dinner we booked one of the private dining room at The Belted Goat. It was the perfect location for a lovely rehearsal dinner. We booked The Garden Terrace for our wedding ceremony and The Barn for our reception and we couldn’t be happier with the way everything turned out! Fearrington exceeded our expectations.Sent on 03/31/2019
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.
