Dreaming of Rustic Weddings

Photo by Graham Terhune Photography

If you’re imagining an authentic rustic wedding, then Fearrington is the perfect venue! The Fearrington Barn, originally the Fearrington farm’s dairy barn, is the embodiment of rustic elegance with twig chandeliers and rich lighting. Begin a reception with a cocktail hour on the cobblestone courtyard before entering this breathtaking space.

For special rustic touches, our planners recommend linens with texture, particularly burlap. Farm tables create a pastoral atmosphere without overwhelming guests. Couples are already taking advantage of chalkboards at ceremonies and receptions, and they are perfect for rustic weddings!

If your perfect wedding is a picturesque bucolic ceremony and reception, check out some of Fearrington’s weddings on Pinterest, and contact our wedding team to begin designing your special day!

These fruity apple tones complement the ESB's natural nutty and sweet aromas, resulting in flavors of caramel, toasted malts, and a lingering apple sweetness. On the label, we call this seasonal offering "the true taste of autumn in the South,"... Full Post >

Crafting a Cozy Reception

Even weddings with lots of guests can feel cozy! Read for some tips from our wedding planners on how to make a large reception feel intimate. Take advantage of throw pillows and cushions in lounge areas - these are great spaces for guests to relax and feel comfortable. Using rugs and piping or draping to create screened off spaces also shape an intimate vibe. Don't forget about music, candle light and greenery to make rooms less harsh and more inviting.
