We loved Ivy Creek Family Farm for our wedding! It is a truly beautiful place, and they are so accommodating and helpful. The staff truly went above and beyond for us on our special day. This is the perfect venue if you love the outdoors and the ability to bring your friends and family together in a magical setting- we would book this venue over and over again if we could.Sent on 09/01/2018

We couldn't have picked a better location to share our love and our celebration with our friends and family. We travelled back to NC all the way from Montana to find the right location for our special day. The fall colors were amazing in October and our guest enjoyed hiking around the Blue Ridge Mountains and visiting the Asheville Farmer's Market as part of the weekend festivities. The venue was perfect and all of our needs were met, but the most memorable thing about the weekend was the incredible natural setting by the creek and snuggled up against the mountains. Not only will it be a great experience for you as the bride and groom, it will give your guests a memorable weekend they wont' forget.Sent on 09/03/2018

We are so glad we chose Ivy Creek for our wedding reception at the end of June. We absolutely loved our time there, and Anna & her husband were so helpful in making sure that everything was ready for us! They were able to honor our requests for how we wanted things to be laid out, and were kind and helpful throughout the entire process. The view is absolutely amazing, as well as the grounds of the entire farm. The mountains made a wonderful background for our photos. The atmosphere is so peaceful and relaxing, and created a great space for our friends and family to celebrate. Also, this is a wedding venue but more importantly a working farm. Supporting a local business is extremely important and a great way to use a wedding as an opportunity to give back. We highly recommend Ivy Creek Family Farm!Sent on 08/30/2018
