Facilities and Capacity
This 10,000 square foot space offers the perfect combination of country and elegance. For your ceremony, you can use The Pavilion’s rear garden, which provides a picturesque setting by saying “I do” beneath the elegant pergola. You have the opportunity to get ready in their Bride’s Retreat, which is a 900 square foot loft that can accommodate you and your attendants. They also offer a Groom’s Room. Guests can enter through large, wooden double doors to the open-air reception area called The Pavilion. They are greeted with the glow of four shining chandeliers. At the far end, there is a 34 foot wood-burning fireplace made of Tennessee field stone. It is topped with a wooden mantel--a beam from the 1800’s that has been reclaimed from the original home that once stood on the property. The red barn stretches to a 30 foot gambrel roof. This space is 60 by 75 feet and can accommodate 50 to 300 guests along with room for dancing. A breeze naturally floats throughout the space in summer and a glass enclosure is added for winter gatherings. Plus, they have a three foot overhang to provide protection when it rains. Behind The Pavilion, guests can mingle during cocktail hour on the patio, complete with a gas fire pit and wall for seating. This space is situated to one side of the 112 acre property and overlooks rolling pastures and a grove of North Carolina’s tall pine trees. It provides a serene country backdrop on your wedding day.

We are SO glad that we found Pavilion at Carriage Farm after an extensive venue search – it was the perfect setting for our August 2018 reception! When we first toured, that was before it was enclosed with glass, air conditioned, and pre-bridal suite, and even then we thought it was perfect – since that time, Marti and her team worked incredibly hard to make it an even more impressive, sought after venue. The details included in the venue are amazingly breathtaking (chandeliers, stone fireplace, spacious bridal suite, stone fire pit, chivari chairs) and the scenic views made for stunning photos – including sunset shots with horses on the property! Bobbi was the ideal on-site venue representative on the day of, helping our day to run seamlessly. A huge perk of the venue is being able to bring your own alcohol – we went with Cook Shack (amazing!) for our catering and bartending services. We had 115 guests and there was plenty of room to move cocktail hour indoors when weather unfortunately did not permit for it to be held outdoors on the beautiful patio. The venue is naturally gorgeous and doesn’t require a ton of decorating; tables and chairs are included and whiskey barrels are available for rental. We wouldn’t change a thing about the Pavilion at Carriage Farm – thank you to Marti and team for being so accommodating and making our wedding day unforgettable! We could not have made a better venue decision!Sent on 09/30/2018
