Facilities and Capacity
The Catlett Farm on the Cape Fear has some truly remarkable elements which make it so pleasing to the eye and great for photos. Some of the natural features include the 400 yards of river frontage, large beautiful trees, and a two-acre pond with a marvelous Japanese footbridge. A gazebo at the end of the bridge offers a romantic setting in the middle of the pond and it is big enough to shelter several people. What makes this feature stand out is its versatility. It can either be used as a private island ceremonial spot for more intimate-style weddings, or it can be used as pseudo-stage while your guests watch on from the embankment.
Twelve acres of open fields, a large fire pit, and a tree swing are some other fun features that make this venue a truly splendid sight to behold. Each feature adds character to this expansive venue.
The indoor 3,000-square-foot barn space can accommodate groups of up to 150 people for the cozy reception. If couples opt for an outdoor event, that space will accommodate large tents for more guests. Couples and their guests can also make use of the bridal suite that is available on-site, for preparations prior to the big event.
The Catlett Farm on the Cape Fear can provide venue services for a variety of events, including bridal showers, engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, elopements, wedding ceremonies, receptions, and more. The venue gives you the opportunity to bring in any licensed and insured outside vendors of your choice. If you aren't sure where to start, Mrs. Catlett can provide you with a list of recommended vendors. This venue is liability insured, and can also provide assistance with the setup for your event.

Our wedding is Oct. 12, 2019 and I can not wait! The venue is absolutely beautiful. It was rainy and muddy the day we visited for the first time but Marie made sure we got to see everything the venue has to offer. I look forward to working with her over the next few months!Sent on 01/29/2019

Could Not Have Chosen Better!
Because the venue was local for us, it made it a perfect location for planning and setting up. Because we had it for three days we were able to have the rehearsal and dinner as well as the wedding and after wedding festivities. We had the next day to clean and never felt rushed. Location was perfect for our out-of-town guest as the hotel was very close; we also used Exclusive Shuttle to get our guest back-and-forth to the hotel which worked out perfectly. Jeffery’s Florist in Dunn did an absolute fabulous job with decorating this venue and Southern Coals food was highly complemented by the guests. The set up was perfect to do everything we wanted and my daughter hugged our necks and said, “Thank you for making the Wedding Day of my dreams come true!” I highly recommend this venue and owner.Sent on 04/24/2019
