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 700 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 climate controlled 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 34 foot gambrel roof. This space is 60 by 75 feet and can accommodate 50 to 275 guests along with room for dancing. 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.

    Dream wedding

    Marti and the team at the Pavilion at Carriage Farm became our rock during Wedding planning. We faced many challenges during the 2020 calendar year, yet Marti and her team always had our back. They were always responsive in helping us coordinate our big day, and executed flawlessly on the day-of. The venue itself is beautiful and speaks for itself. However, the support of the team there kept all our plans progressing and brought it all together. We had the venue during the whole day for preparation, ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. We also rented the space for our catered rehearsal dinner the night before, and the Pavilion provided bartenders and alcohol for both the rehearsal dinner and wedding reception. There were a ton of moving pieces that they were able to take care of for us. (We had the option to coordinate these items ourselves, but we are very happy with the service the staff provided and it was less things for us to worry about). Overall, Marti and her team were absolutely wonderful to work with, and again, the Pavilion itself is absolutely beautiful for a Wedding. We strongly recommend!

    Stunning venue for a large or small wedding!

    What a perfect venue! We booked the Pavilion in 2019 for our October 2020 wedding. The great thing about this venue is that it was built as a venue, so it keeps your guests and your vendors in mind! We originally had a 200 person wedding planned, which ended up being a 50 person wedding due to covid. I was worried that the indoor reception area would look overwhelmingly big for 50 people, but it still managed to feel like a normal space and not too empty. So, the venue is great for large AND small weddings. Air conditioning is also a huge plus for those hot days!

    The outdoor space where we had our ceremony was beautiful! They recently added in more landscaping and it looked amazing. This is such a versatile space, that any design or color scheme looks good! We had so many beautiful locations for pictures. There is a big, beautiful bridal suite upstairs which has tons of natural light-- and it's big enough for your hair and makeup team to come to you! There's also a grooms suite downstairs.

    We loved having this as our venue!
