Millikan Farms is an elegant, vintage-style wedding venue located in Sophia, North Carolina. They offer multiple indoor and outdoor options for both your ceremony and reception. Their experienced staff is happy to host both intimate gatherings and grand affairs alike. Millikan Farms prides themselves on their authentic farm setting, restored 1938 barn and in close proximity to Greensboro, High Point, Winston-Salem and Asheboro.

Facilities and Capacity
Couples can accommodate up to 200 guests at this rustic venue. They feature a beautiful lake that is perfect to hold your ceremony near. Your guests will experience a peaceful breeze off the water as you say your “I do’s.” For your reception, they offer their spacious event barn and attached patio.

    Great venue!

    Millikan Farms was great during the wedding planning process. They are reasonably priced, very responsive and overall a beautiful venue. Cynthia was easy to work with and helpful in bringing my ideas to life. Highly recommend!

    So seamless and smooth! And perfectly beatiful!

    The team at Millikan was so so easy to work with, especially Cynthia! She is the most responsive person ever; if I emailed her about something at 1030 at night (not expecting a response until the next day) she emailed right back! She made it easy to schedule my pre-wedding walk throughs in a way that worked with my schedule (and about 8 other people's when I brought a group to one of them!) Cynthia also has so much knowledge about the wedding business and decorating that was super helpful. Although she was not my hired decorator, I bounced ideas off of her and rented some of her things!
    On top of all that, Millikan is truly so beautiful. The setting is gorgeous and both the inside and outside option is perfect. That's what sold me on having my wedding there! I knew that no matter what the weather looked like on wedding day, that the setting would be beautiful!

    Millikan Farms's reply:

    Caroline, thank you so much for all the kind words!!! You were so calm every time we met - you made my job easy! Your wedding day was so perfect and we absolutely appreciate you letting Millikan Farms be a big part of it!

    Blessings!
    ~Cynthia

Cynthia Strider
Cynthia Strider
Venue Manager

Cynthia has a passion for weddings! She has catered, coordinated, and decorated for weddings since high school. She got her love of weddings from her Mother who taught her the trade and at age 21 was told "you're now in charge of weddings...I'm the helper!"

Cynthia works with our brides to put together a package 'just for them'. There are several optional add-ons available at a discount when renting the Millikan Farms venue.

In Cynthia's own words.."I just love a good ole barn wedding! Heck, I was married in a barn in 1998 when everyone thought I was crazy. Actually, I was ahead of my time!"
