Love is Love!
We welcome everyone to our farm for their beautiful wedding!
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, only 30 minutes to RDU Airport, and yes, Uber/Lyft and shuttles (large and small) come to our farm. You can arrive as early as you want on your wedding day and end the night as late as you want as long as your vendors remain to complete our venue clean up. We’re here every step of the way to guide you through wedding planning, day of wedding coordination, and since we’re also artists and graphic designers we’ll create all those amazing welcome signs, seating charts, unique bar menus, and other custom pieces to bring your wedding vision to life!
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 7,000 sq. ft., elegant with a touch of rustic, adorned with opulent wrought iron and crystal chandeliers, temperature controlled, and includes our beautiful Bridal Suite, a separate retreat room for unlimited possibilities (photo booth, ice cream vendor), a 1,000 sq ft Loft, 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.

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 décor, tables, chairs, linens, centerpiece items, graphic design services, parking attendant, and even all your long burning candles, and more!
