Ashley & Jason

Ashley and Jason tied the knot on February 28, 2015. These newlyweds said their "I dos" at the Garden Terrace, and danced the night away in the Fearrington Barn. How did you and your partner meet? We went to the same college, Carnegie Mellon University, and actually lived on the same floor freshman year. We really didn’t start to know each other until the second semester that year, when I couldn’t figure out the Virtual Lab assignments from Chem 2 class and someone had casually... Full Post >

Divine Intervention or Maker’s Mark?

We've had bridal couples consider it before, and I remember thinking it was a cute idea, but now I am a believer! I’m talking about Burying the Bourbon -- really. In our planning meeting, I realized that Libby was serious about burying a bottle of Bourbon at her wedding site 30 days before her and Will's big day. So, our gardener Donna cheerfully obliged. A month later, Will did the honors of digging up the buried treasure just before the ceremony, in the midst of a heatwave with... Full Post >

A Helpful Coworker: Star!

Have I mentioned that I love my job? I do. I really do! My day consist of meeting people who are in love, helping them plan a beautiful day and playing with flowers. I do all this in the most beautiful environment -- surrounded by gardens and talented coworkers. As always, thank you to the Fitch family for creating such a dream place. And the icing on the cake...Star, our fabulous shop kitty. We all love her so! She can usually be found lounging under her zinnias in our cutting garden.... Full Post >

At Last!

Dina and Diane have been together for 24 years and last year they were finally married here at Fearrington. They are a much-loved couple and I am so glad that we had the honor and fun of joining them in their very special celebration.

Cassie & Richard

Cassie and Richard tied the knot on December 28, 2014. These newlyweds said their "I dos" at the Garden Terrace, and danced the night away in the Fearrington Granary. How did you and your partner meet? I was having a post-shift drink at the tavern that I used to work at in Apex when Richard sat one bar stool down from me. I was slightly annoyed, as the bar was empty - I wasn't in the mood for small talk. Richard began speaking to me, though, and I was pleasantly surprised by his... Full Post >

Jennifer & David

Jennifer and David tied the knot on October 12, 2014. These newlyweds said their "I dos" at the Garden House, and danced the night away in the Garden Terrace. How did you and your partner meet? We met while we were both working at Walgreen's. A group of people from stores around the area were selected to help remodel stores. For one remodel we stayed at a hotel. While we were there David would always come out at night to keep me company while I would walk my dog. After we started dating,... Full Post >

Please find your way to your seats!

There are so many ways to display place cards at weddings. A recent favorite of mine was wrapping foam boards in a pretty floral print fabric and pinning hand sketched and writen place acrds to the boards. - Cheryl Full Post >

Cutest Baby Shower Cake EVER!

Our very talented pastry chefs at the Fearrington House obviously had a great time welcoming Baby Jones into the world.  They even named the animals – Milton the Monkey, Jerry the Giraffe, Roger the Lion and Douglas the Zebra (what else would you call a zebra?!).  Too much fun! - Gilda Full Post >

Alex & Andrew

Alex and Andrew tied the knot on December 6, 2014. These newlyweds said their "I dos" at the Garden Terrace, and danced the night away in the Fearrington Barn. How did you and your partner meet? We met nine years ago through mutual friends. Two of our best friends (Andrew’s best man) are brother and sister and we met at their house. After years of hanging out in the same close circle of friends, we began spending a lot more time together during the summer of 2010. When Alex left for... Full Post >
