Falling for Autumn Flowers

Fearrington's incredibly talented floral designer Mary Stevens shared a few ideas about how to incorporate seasonal flowers into a beautiful fall wedding! "I think that fall weddings can be lush and romantic – without having to be kitschy or overly themed. Brides are not limited to pumpkins filled with orange and red flowers. Softer, more romantic, antique tones work beautifully for autumn events. Think of sunset hues. Seasonal foliage, softer greens, blush, peach, butter yellow, gold -... Full Post >

Diane & Dina

Diane and Dina tied the knot on April 19, 2014. They said their, "I dos" under the Willow Oaks and danced the night away in the Fearrington Barn! How did you and Dina meet? We met starting new jobs on December 31, 1988 in Winston-Salem at Wachovia Bank. We were being processed in HR and Dina asked Diane if she was nervous starting a new job. We were both new to Winston-Salem and did not know anyone in town. After multiple attempts, Dina was finally able to persuade Diane to come over... Full Post >

A Fun Idea

There are so many ways to add simple, personal touches to wedding décor, and we certainly welcome creative ideas at Fearrington. One thing that I often encourage couples to do is personalize what they call their tables in the seating plan. Of course you can never beat the good old numbering system (1, 2, 3), but how about calling them names of cities traveled together, places of significance from college, names of flowers? You name it – there’s no end to creative options. Personally, I... Full Post >

Bouquet Making with Southern Weddings

I always love starting the day in our beautiful cutting gardens (thank you Gardener Donna Mears!) and today  was even better because I got to share it with an amazing group of women. The charming and talented ladies from Southern Weddings Magazine just happen to be visiting Fearrington for a retreat. We had a casual stroll through the cutting gardens followed by a very informal lesson in bouquet design. It was so interesting to see who picked what – and although they all cut from... Full Post >

Chelsea & Jason

Chelsea and Jason tied the knot on May 31st, 2014. They held their ceremony at Fearrington's Crab Apple Trees and celebrated their "I dos" in The Fearrington Barn! How did y'all meet? Jason and I met through mutual friends at a restaurant/bar in Knightdale, NC. Much to my surprise, our friends had arranged for us to meet that night and Jason knew about me. I was oblivious to our friends' plan and thought it was just another night out. I guess you could say it was a "partial... Full Post >

Leigh & Rock

Leigh and Rock tied the knot on August 19, 2014. They had their ceremony and reception at Fearrington's Garden Terrace! How did you and Rock meet? Rock and I communicated on Match.com for a couple weeks before we decided to meet at a local pub in Rocky River, Ohio on April 17, 2011. At first, I thought it was very strange that he was covered in glitter, but he later explained that he came straight from his brother-in-law's birthday celebration and was playing with his two nieces -- so...

This is Where the Magic Starts!

Anyone who has attended a Fearrington wedding, stayed overnight at the Inn, or dined at The Fearrington House has undoubtedly been wowed by the floral artistry of Mary Stevens and her talented team. While having the ability to choose from among the best in bloom the world has to offer each week, the Fearrington designers have another asset -- special beds of cutting plants created just for them by Gardener Donna Mears! With one located behind the Flower Shop, and another behind Roost, the... Full Post >

Jessica & Ben

Jessica and Ben tied the knot on May 18th, 2014. They held their ceremony at Fearrington's Crab Apple Trees and celebrated their "I dos" in The Garden Terrace! How did y'all meet? Ben and I met as undergraduates at Duke University. We had attended a speaking event and struck up a conversation on the way back to campus. I was interested in Ben right away, but he was probably more interested in the substance of our conversation at the time. We decided to meet again to talk; our talks... Full Post >

Mary Margaret & Alex

Mary Margaret and Alex tied the knot on April 5, 2014. They held their ceremony at Fearrington's Willow Oaks and celebrated their "I dos" in The Fearrington Barn! How did y'all meet? We met through mutual friends while living in D.C. on Good Friday, after both getting stuck in the city for Easter weekend. A blessing in disguise!   Tell us about the engagement? Alex proposed on the beach two years later in Emerald Isle, NC on Good Friday!   What made... Full Post >

Kennedy & Mark

Kennedy and Mark tied the knot on February 15, 2014. They held their ceremony at Fearrington's Garden Terrace and celebrated their "I dos" in The Fearrington Barn! How did y'all meet? Mark and I met in college at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Though we hung out in the same large group of friends, it wasn’t until late our second year that we could both put names to faces. Mark left to study abroad in Hong Kong the following summer and then I left for Chile, South... Full Post >
