About Lavender Oaks Farm

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!


Facilities And Capacity
Lavender Oaks Farm accommodates up to 250 guests in our Main Barn, and we offer several areas for your ceremony, cocktail hour all in a timeless and private setting. We allow you to bring in your own alcohol, drop things off a day or two before your wedding, and come back the next day to pick up items. Our 60 acres is surrounded by a majestic forest, and since we are secluded your DJ or Band can play late inside our Main Barn!

    Love in the time of quarantine

    Words cannot express how wonderful Karen and her team is at Lavender Oaks Farm. From the second we set foot on her beautiful property, we felt welcomed, taken care of and listened to. Karen is warm, thoughtful, beyond talented and walks you and your partner through the ENTIRE wedding process in a non stressful way. The venue has endless options for ceremony and reception options. Karen offers her talents in graphic design and planning, she meets with you at regular intervals to make sure planning, budgets and decisions are on track. Not to mention she feeds you delicious snacks, and will never let you leave empty handed (lots of lavender goodies from the gift shop!) On top of how amazing she is under regular circumstances, when our wedding date was compromised due to COVID, she reached out to us multiple times to help us make tough decisions. She supported us unconditionally and helped us have a small ceremony and dinner at the venue on our original date AND reschedule our planned wedding celebration for the following year for no extra cost. She even put together a small bouquet/boutonnière, table decorations, and had her daughter bake us the best chocolate cake I have ever had for our dessert. Talk about going above and beyond for her clients. We were speechless, and so grateful. My husband and I feel like part of her family and we cannot WAIT to celebrate next year. This venue and Karen are well worth the price! I would recommend Lavender Oaks Farm to anyone and everyone considering!!

    Mr. & Mrs. Lavender are gems!

    Working with Karen at Lavender Oaks Farm was one of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning process. That was so incredibly clear that we kept saying it to each other in the months leading up to the wedding. She and her husband are incredibly hard-working, thoughtful, and just great people to work with. The first day we toured the farm Karen pronounced my wife’s Turkish name correctly. She had taken the time in advance of meeting us to ask a Turkish friend how to pronounce it in order to get it right. This is something that no other wedding vendor we worked with did.

    From there onwards, Karen made us feel so well taken care of. She replied to emails promptly, patiently walked us through the various steps of wedding planning (many of which were news to us!) and went out of her way to help us execute our vision for our wedding weekend.

    In addition to Karen and her husband, the venue itself is a joy and a beauty. We had our ceremony outside facing the fireplace mantel and the lovely tall trees behind it. The lavender fields are gorgeous, the barn is warm and inviting and scented with lavender, and the outdoor shelter makes for an extra special place for a cocktail hour after the ceremony. Unlike at other venues, we had access to the entire venue for the entirety of the weekend. We were able to drop things off during the week before the wedding, set up decor and have the rehearsal there on Friday, and pick things up on Sunday rather than trying to do it all the day of the wedding. This flexibility was so worthwhile and allowed us to actually enjoy the weekend.

    We can’t recommend Lavender Oaks enough as a wedding venue. Unfortunately, a family emergency prevented Karen from being there in person the day of our wedding. While we were so sad at the time because Karen was such a big part of why we chose the venue, she more than made up for it by hiring us (free of charge) a very talented day-of-coordinator, Jessica, who had experience working at Lavender Oaks. She also worked with our other vendors to ensure they took care of us extra well on our big day. Plus her husband, Mr. Lavender, was there to keep everything running smoothly on the farm the day of. We can’t imagine having gotten married anywhere else other than Lavender Oaks!

    Our hearts are so full of love for you two, and we’re so grateful for this beautiful review! We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness, and hope you’ll visit our farm often! Much love always, Karen & Robert aka Mr & Mrs Lavender!
