Lavender Oaks Farm is a 60-acre private farm located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Imagine unlimited time with all your favorite people in the most magnificent setting of 60 private acres located less than 5 miles to downtown Chapel Hill, NC, very close to all the hotels, restaurants, and only 30 minutes to RDU Airport. Plus, Uber/Lyft come to our farm as a convenience for your guests!

At Lavender Oaks Farm, we are proud to be preserving a part of American history with our two historic timber frame barns that have been lovingly and meticulously restored. Our Main Barn, circa 1900, is rustic, yet refined, 7,000 sq ft, temperature controlled, and includes our beautiful Bridal Suite, Groom’s Retreat, gourmet kitchen, spacious restrooms, and our Lavender Oaks Farm Shoppe. Walk outside our Main Barn and enjoy our 3,000 outdoor patio with our stone fireplace, wrought iron gazebo, all overlooking our 4,000 lavender plants. We faced our Main Barn east so the outdoor patio gets all the afternoon shade which is the perfect lighting for your event. Our covered outdoor Pavilion Barn is the perfect location for your ceremony, cocktail hour, or as a rain contingency plan. We rent our barns for weddings and special events year-round and include all your Event/Wedding Planning, a Day of Coordinator, quite a lot of decor, tables, chairs, linens, centerpiece items, dried or fresh lavender (seasonally), graphic design services, parking attendant, restroom attendant, and more!

The average wedding budget of our couples is $30,000 including our rental fee, and because we include so much we find that we save our couples from all those added expenses. We only allow one wedding per weekend, so you have the luxury of time to relax on your wedding day, and set the time for your ceremony rehearsal the day before at a time that is convenient for you. We rent our Main Barn and grounds for unlimited time on your wedding day, so you can relax and end the night at your leisure! We invite you to schedule a tour to see all the beautiful items and services we include with your rental fee to make your day spectacular!

    Absolutely Perfect

    Lavender Oaks Farm is a fantastic venue and I wish I could give it more than 5 stars. I initially picked this spot because of the variety of space onsite - there is an outdoor pavilion, a back patio with firepits and a fireplace, an upstairs balcony, a bridal suite, and a groomsman cabin. However, what I ended up getting was far more than I could have ever imagined. Karen, the owner, is a wonderful woman with a heart for hosting and event planning. She is patient, gracious, so generous, and kind. Never once did I feel like I was bothering her with questions or asking for too much. She went above and beyond to make sure that our day was absolutely perfect, and in making sure that we felt like family all along the way.

    If you're hesitating, book this place. There is a rain contingency plan, the accommodations to your wedding party are fantastic and unmatched, and you really feel like you're being looked out for. I had a vision for different things - a hot chocolate bar, a s'mores bar, and a large dessert area. Karen made all of these come to life with ease and grace.

    Not to mention, the place itself is gorgeous. Karen and her team take great care of the barn - all of our guests were blown away by how classy and beautiful the venue was.

    Karen also has close ties to incredible vendors in the area. She has preferred vendors who she works seamlessly with, and they are all truly excellent.

    Our day was perfect, and that has a lot to do with this barn and with Karen's heart. Thank you, Karen, for opening up this space to us!!!

    Great Venue, Exceptional Staff

    Lavender Oaks Farm was the perfect venue for us! Karen, the venue owner, worked closely with us throughout the whole process. She went above and beyond to make our day and all the details prior fit our wants and needs. There were several issues with our vendors on our day (to clarify: outside of Lavender Oaks and not their from their list of recommendations), but Karen handled them so well, that we didn't even know until the next day. Karen took the vision we had for our wedding and made it come to life. Her and her staff helped my family enjoy the planning process and the wedding because we knew we could trust Karen to take care of the details.

    The venue was designed with you and your guests in mind. Lavender Oaks considered every detail, not limited to: guest flow through the space, entertainment activities during cocktail hour and the reception, snacks for the day of and rehearsal, even down to a replacing a slightly dim lightbulb behind the head table.

    Truly, words cannot recommend this venue and team enough. We were highly satisfied with our experience. Karen and her team treat you like their own family. We are so glad we chose them for our venue.
