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 wanted a unique venue that wasn't in a banquet hall or too outdoor country and the Pavilion at Carriage Farm was perfect! It's on a horse farm and just simple southern elegance. Our ceremony was behind the Manor or you can have it under the tree in front of the pond. We got married 5/28 so it was hot during the ceremony in the sun, but the Pavilion has fans and the lobby area is air conditioned. We booked this venue when the Pavilion was just a big patch of dirt, so it was exciting to watch them build it. They provide tables and chairs: 25-60" rounds, 2-48" rounds, 5-6' longs, 10 cocktails, 2 sets of 200 chairs. We only had to rent bar tables and brought our own alcohol (huge money saver). You have to choose from a list of caterers, and while we would have liked more options, we hired Rocky Top and they were delicious. They provide shuttle carts between sites, I think driven by their kids, which is really cute. You can also walk, but it's not easy in heels. The guys got ready in the Pavilion groom room, and my bridal party got ready in the Manor, which is stunning! The new bridal suite wasn't ready for our wedding (which we knew when we booked), but I bet it's gorgeous. The reception area is open on the sides, so it feels like you're outside. This is great for kids because they can run and have fun, and you'll get amazing photos at sunset. They have chandeliers, a huge stone fireplace, and a stone patio (perfect for cocktail hour), so you don't need to decorate much. Alex handled reservations and after we booked, all communication was with the owner. Marti is such a sweet lady and so helpful and flexible. We didn't use the venue for our rehearsal, so she gave us 2 extra hours for setup. We DIY'ed a ton of stuff, including linen, decor, flowers, instruments, etc., so those extra hours were life-saving! The owners really seem like sweet, caring people. This venue is on their home property so a lot of care and attention is given to make sure the venue is beautiful.

Marti Leone was my saving grace. If we had a venue to choose again without any doubt I would get married at her new Pavillion again. She went out of her way to help beyond what any other venue would have done. Her assistant Bobbie was absolutely an Angel in prepping at the Manor the morning of our wedding, she too calmed me and was absolutely amazing throughout the entire day. I loved my wedding am so happy we chose The Manor at Carriage Farm. Thanks again for EVERYTHING!
