Weddings at Lavender Oaks Farm
Imagine unlimited time with all your favorite people in the most magnificent setting of 60 private acres located less than 5 miles to downtown Chapel Hill, NC, very close to all the hotels, restaurants, and only 30 minutes to RDU Airport. Plus, Uber/Lyft come to our farm as a convenience for your guests!
At Lavender Oaks Farm, we are proud to be preserving a part of American history with our two historic timber frame barns that have been lovingly and meticulously restored. Our Main Barn, circa 1900, is rustic, yet refined, temperature controlled, and includes our beautiful Bridal Suite, Groom’s Retreat, gourmet kitchen, spacious restrooms, and our Lavender Oaks Farm Shoppe. Walk outside our Main Barn and enjoy our 3,000 outdoor patio with our stone fireplace, wrought iron gazebo, all overlooking our 4,000 lavender plants. We faced our Main Barn east so the outdoor patio gets all the afternoon shade which is the perfect lighting for your event. Our covered outdoor Pavilion Barn is the perfect location for your ceremony, cocktail hour, or as a rain contingency plan. We rent our barns for weddings and special events year-round and include all your Event/Wedding Planning, a Day of Coordinator, quite a lot of decor, tables, chairs, linens, centerpiece items, dried or fresh lavender (seasonally), graphic design services, parking attendant, restroom attendant, and more!
The average wedding budget of our couples is $30,000 including our rental fee, and because we include so much we find that we save our couples from all those added expenses. We only allow one wedding per weekend, so you have the luxury of time to relax on your wedding day, and set the time for your ceremony rehearsal the day before at a time that is convenient for you. We rent our Main Barn and grounds for unlimited time on your wedding day, so you can relax and end the night at your leisure! We invite you to contact us to schedule a tour to see all the beautiful items and services we include with your rental fee to make your day spectacular!
