Winter Wonderland Wedding

Dreaming of a beautiful wedding in the snow?  Sure!  We can do that, with a little help from Mother Nature. I’m not sure how you get much prettier than this, in fact. Thanks to this gorgeous and unbelievably sweet couple, we are off to a great start for our 2014 season.  Very exciting!  It’s going to be a great year. Full Post >

More on Anniversaries

I had a really sweet email from a past bride and groom, Rachelle and Chris, talking about what a good time they had here when they came back to Fearrington for their second anniversary.  I will share it with you: "We decided we should come back more often!  I wish we could have done this last year on our first anniversary!   It was the best meal I've had in forever!  They made me a ribeye on request and I was sooo full! We started with some ice cream at The Goat then went to the barn... Full Post >

Anniversaries

Regardless of how much planning we do, weekends often bring great surprises.  (No, I am not talking about the occasional surprise rainy wedding day – we always have a plan for that!)  I am talking about anniversaries! Almost every weekend old friends turn up celebrating their anniversaries.  It’s always so nice to see those familiar faces and catch up.  I am always surprised – “How did it get to be a year ALREADY?” or “How did you have time to have 3 kids ALREADY?!” – and...

Spring Hope on a Cold Day

It warms my heart on a blustery day to see the little pips of blossoms making their way through the cold hard ground. Hellebore (commonly known as Lenten Rose) is always one of the first to pop up their pretty little heads and give me hope that this too shall pass! Full Post >

Sweet Intimate Wedding

There is nothing more special to me than seeing two people commit to one another in front of their closest family and friends. This past month we hosted a sweet intimate wedding in Jenny's Garden for Jim and Nasrin. It was a cool winter's day but the sun was out and the couples love for one another made for a gorgeous day! The ceremony was followed by an afternoon tea in our Sunroom and dinner at The Fearrington House Restaurant. Nasrin and Jim we wish you only the best. Happy 2014! Full Post >

What an Honor!

After being together for 18 years, Bill and Martie were married in the privacy of their beautiful Fearrington Inn room on a December afternoon.  The ceremony was just the two of them, conducted by our dear friend Dr. John Oliver.  Since there were no attendants or guests, photographer extraordinaire Krystal Kast and I got to be the witnesses.  It was such a sweet, meaningful ceremony and a tremendous honor for me to get to sign their marriage license for them. It was also a really nice... Full Post >

Reflecting on the Holiday Season!

We had a busy and beautiful holiday season at Fearrington! Even though Christmas and the holidays are a distant memory to some, we are still reflecting on what made us happy. We hosted beautiful events in the Barn and the Christmas trees lining the Barn hallway bought smiles to many faces! I loved all the little details Maggie and Neil added to their Christmas themed wedding on December 14th. They did Christmas right! We wish you all the best Mr. and Mrs. Kern! Full Post >

Personal Touches

Wedding trends are certainly fun -- we all eagerly await the newest issue of Martha, too -- but it's the personal touches that make all the difference to me.  We see so many thoughtful, really meaningful, additions to weddings and those are the details that really stand out in my memory. Today's bride's family has spent hundreds of hours carefully folding these Japanese origami cranes to hang from the ceiling in the Barn halway and to give as favors to guests. I can only imagine the... Full Post >

Time of our Lives!

A couples first dance is always a very special part of their wedding day. Lisa and Dan surprised their guests with a fun, upbeat first dance. They kept guests entertained with an amazing performance by "Time of Our Lives" from Dirty Dancing the movie. It was so sweet and represents this fun couple and their love for one another so well. We wish you many more fun, happy years together! Full Post >

Nails and Champagne

Relax and unwind with the girls the day before your wedding at The Spa at Fearrington. Enjoy luxury or classic manicures and pedicures whilst sipping on a glass of bubbly in our tranquil, semi-private mani/pedi room. A wonderful way to reconnect  and thank your bridesmaids for being part of your special day! Full Post >
