Fearrington Village is located on the site of an 18th century dairy farm in the country, just outside Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The original dairy barn and silo continue to dominate the landscape and charming Belted Galloway cows graze in the meadow. The farm is now home to The Fearrington House Country Inn and Restaurant, a member of the prestigious international organization Relais & Chateaux and the only property in North Carolina with AAA Five-Diamond and Exxon Mobil Five Star awards. Fearrington has become one of the pre-eminent locations in the South for a classic, elegant wedding.
There are many wonderful settings nestled in the gardens at Fearrington to offer the perfect seasonal match for your ceremony. Whether your dream wedding is a private exchange of vows in The White Garden or a large group surrounded by the Perennial flower borders at the Dovecote gardens, Fearrington can accommodate year-round.
Under the old Oak Trees, in front of the original Fearrington farm home, is the West Terrace - the perfect daytime Garden Party setting for any size group to experience the charm of the ideal Southern Wedding. Over the years our dairy barn has become famous for large elegant evening receptions. In what was once the farm granary, our Market Cafe now hosts a variety of wedding functions from bridal luncheons to rehearsal dinners to smaller wedding receptions. Whatever your needs, Fearrington has a location perfect for your celebration.
Common to all of the Fearrington reception venues is the sophisticated cuisine and service. Menus are created by the award-winning Fearrington chefs and offer a wide selection of choices including heavy hors d'oeuvres, Southern Fare, buffets, and elegant seated dinners. Created with the same emphasis on excellence as the Fearrington restaurants, receptions are catered to suit the individual wedding.
