Wedding Inspiration in 2016

As spring blossoms around us – there will be more weddings and celebrations to see throughout the Village! Fearrington is host to beautiful special events, ceremonies and receptions of all styles and sizes – from holiday weddings, to birthdays, anniversaries and bridal showers!

One of the many reasons why Fearrington stands out is our locally sourced food! “Having the option to feature a wide range of locally sourced and/or inspired food and beverages was a top priority – all at a level of quality that our guests would comment on as a highlight of the event,” said a Fearrington bride of her wishlist when choosing a wedding venue. “With a guest count of roughly 200, the Fearrington team somehow managed to seamlessly facilitate three meal stations that were always adequately stocked with only the freshest and most delicious options, about which we heard nothing but the best compliments from our guests all night!”

Executive Chef Colin Bedford and his team work on growing vegetables and herbs on-site at Fearrington, and have developed relationships with local farmers such as Heritage Farms and Duckwood Farms, since the opening of The Fearrington House Restaurant. The Fearrington House was named one of FOUR Magazine’s three best farm-to-fork restaurants in the USA in 2014.

Bring in local and sustainable food to your celebration at Fearrington! See more of our weddings by following us on Facebook, and tag your pictures with #FearringtonWeddings and #FearringtonBehindTheScenes.

Housemade Gelato

The Fearrington House Restaurant’s Chef Colin Bedford is always thinking “what’s next?” Last year he surprised us all with the idea to make homemade gelato. As the weather continues to warm up, we are quite grateful for Chef Bedford’s brainchild and our Italian gelato machine. With tried and true flavors such as Valrhona Dark Chocolate, Brown Butter Pecan Crunch and Fearrington Coffee, we know we can choose a Fearrington classic, or opt for something different like Key Lime Pie...

Q&A with Barbara Kiersch

We were excited to chat with Barbara Kiersch for Schneiders of Salzburg, before their trunk show at Dovecote on Saturday, April 30th and Sunday, May 1st. Here is what she shared with us about their collection! What has been your inspiration this season? The SS’16 season revels in three worlds of colors.

Meredith and Josh tied the knot on December 31, 2015. These newlyweds rang in the New Year and danced the night away in the Fearrington Barn! How did you and your partner meet? Josh and I have a unique love story to say the least! A mutual friend introduced us when Josh was enrolled at Kenan-Flagler and I was living/working in Chapel Hill. Neither one of us was looking for a relationship at the time – in fact, Josh had plans to head to Catholic seminary at Notre Dame after getting... Full Post >
