    Friends Farm is the DREAM VENUE!

    My partner and I are so lucky to say we married each other at Friends Farm August 28, 2021. We are still in "awe" of the entire process and the fact that we have the memories and experience through Friends Farm. The venue is breathtaking and the service from Mary and her husband is supportive and "present" in every step of the process. We loved our package was all-inclusive and that everything we needed and wanted was on-site. We wanted a wedding that was intimate and felt like "us" and Mary (the venue owner) did all of this and more. We continue saying we want to "relive" our wedding over and over again at this beautiful venue.

Friends Farm was an awesome venue. I have been at a LOT of barn venues...A LOT and these guys were definitely one of the best! The staff was so friendly and helpful, my bride actually had a flower mishap, and her bouquets were not delivered. The staff went out of their way to provide some last minute silk flowers for the entire wedding party! The grounds were also beautiful, very picturesque and made finding the perfect spots for photos very easy!

Mary Lynn and Pat are the owners of this fantastic wedding venue located in Belews Creek North Carolina just outside of Kernersville. They have truly established a world-class wedding venue that provides opportunities and scenery like no other. The second you step foot on to this fantastic property, you are amazed at how beautiful and personable they have truly made their venue. The brand new reception barn can easily seat many of your guests. The charm of the cabin along with the recently added gentleman a quarters, really add to the ease and excitement of your wedding day. We cannot forget their signature dove release. We have been blessed to be a part of Friends Farm and feel like every person that has had the opportunity to work with Mary Lynn and PAT walk away from their special day feeling overjoyed and thankful that they chose such an amazing wedding venue!
