Book Your Wedding with Fairview Farm Events


A BARN IN POWHATAN, VA

About Us

Fairview Farm Events is a family-owned farm in the heart of Powhatan, Virginia. It is located west of Midlothian and aptly named after Virginia’s rolling farmlands. The venue offers breathtaking views of the of the mountain ranges of Lynchburg and is made even more magical by the stunning Virginia sunsets.

The 115-acre property features a large pond with a fountain, a rustic wooden gazebo and a large dock. The old-fashioned swing on one of the oldest and largest poplar trees in the county is a favorite spot for taking photos as well as the vintage barns, fire pits, pergolas and the garden. Before it was converted into a full-service wedding venue, the property served as a dairy farm for over 60 years and even up to this day.

Couples may choose any of the outdoor venues all over the property as their wedding ceremony site. Wedding receptions are held at the vintage barn, which is a two-story facility with centralized heating and air conditioning. It is tastefully decorated with a three-foot crystal chandelier and bistro lighting as well as rustic tables, chairs and benches. The barn is equipped with modern facilities, such as a full prep kitchen, ADA-compliant restrooms, Bose sound system and a 70-inch television. The space easily accommodates up to 150 guests while the upper loft and the side porches can each add extra seating for up to 40 guests. Outside the barn are stamped concrete porches and walkways, pergolas, gazebos and fire pits. Adjacent to the barn is the 40-by-60-foot pavilion that is mostly used for ceremonies and cocktail hours.

What You Should Know

Fairview Farm Events offers all-inclusive wedding packages that include the use of all the facilities. This includes the game room, which is also dubbed as the Man Room—a 1,200-square-foot building that works as the groom’s room. It is equipped with a pool table, foosball and a television that the groom and his men may have access to up until midnight. The bridal suite features a master bath equipped with mirrors and a large Jacuzzi.

Other wedding needs are also included in the package, such as catering and beverage service, entertainment with either a DJ or a band and a wedding coordinator. Because the venue is already beautifully decorated, couples are able to save in expensive decorations and tent rentals. The packages are also customizable, so if you want to provide your own catering service or other services, the venue deducts a certain amount from the package cost.

Couples who book an all-weekend event at Fairview Farm Events may rent the Blanton Cottage. It is a new lodging space overlooking the pond where family and friends can fish and gather for a morning or afternoon get-together.

I cannot express how absolutely flawless my wedding day was at Fairview farm. The owners were very accommodating, flexible, organized, prompt and easy to contact with any questions or concerns with swift responses and helpful solutions. The way they provide a wedding coordinator... Read More in the package makes ALL the difference. (Angela from XOXO is such a sweetheart, but a decisive boss lady who takes care of business). I literally had ZERO stress. The usual wedding concerns were none of mine. A Plan B for weather? They have options for indoor and outdoor ceremonies, so no need to worry about the weather. Decor? Forget spending an arm and a leg on crafts store wedding decor that you'll never be able to reuse, as the entire venue, in the barn and outside it, are Pinterest-chic; designed in a rustic, antique style from floor to ceiling. Food? Instead of hunting down every catering company, they have a list of preferred caterers to choose from, all of which are reasonable. (But IK Catering is honestly the best, ladies). We had brunch food and my goodness, it was perfect. Every tour and visit went swimmingly. They didn't rush us, and let us explore and ask questions. Deborah regularly checked in via email on my personal booking progress to make sure everything was going okay. (Keep in mind if you don't book from a vendor on their preferred list, you have to buy 1 day liability insurance for that DJ, photographer, etc. if they don't already have it. It's like $125 or so, which isn't a huge deal). Overall, everything was perfect. Everyone had a blast. This was honestly the first and the last venue we looked at; we were sold immediately by its charm. I'm not being bias when I say it was the best wedding ever thanks to Fairview Farms!

Debbie also provided me with a great list of preferred vendors which made planning from NH a breeze! We booked the Route 64 band, IK Catering, XOXO Weddings & Events, and LOL photobooth. All great vendors! Debbie and Blanton did a great job of helping us with all the logistics and also last minute ceremony changes due to rain on our wedding day. We also love their "prop/pinterest" closet that allowed us to borrow chalkboards, table numbers, frames and more. This saved us a ton on things we would likely never use again! Overall, I can't say enough positive things about this venue and the people who run it. We had an awesome experience and are so grateful for everything they did to make this process easy and fun.

Having our wedding there was the best possible decision we could have made for our special day! My husband and I were set on an outdoor wedding, but we were worried about rain. Other wedding venues we looked at had, to put it quite plainly, appalling options in case it poured. Fairview, however, not only had a beautiful Plan B, but also a Plan C! We were also concerned with the heat, since the wedding was taking place mid-July in central Virginia, but Fairview had just recently added insulated air-conditioning to their barn this past winter. (And speaking of winter, if you want to get married in the colder months, they got you covered as well; the barn also has heat!) Because of the air-conditioning our guests could comfortably dance the night away, and for weeks after would go on and on regarding what a fun time they had at Fairview. We also received more compliments than we could count, on the gorgeous venue. The farm had a breathtaking view that night of the sunset and (full!) moon! Can't say enough amazing things about this venue! (I would give it more stars if I could!) We knew as soon as we stepped foot on the property this was the place for us, and I'm sure you and your significant other will as well. We'd recommend this place to anyone!

Fairview Farms was one of the only venues we toured when booking our wedding this year. We absolutely fell in love with the property once we saw it! I love that they provide so many extra decorations for us to use but we ended up creating our own decorations because I got so... Read More inspired by the whole property and its setting! We rented the property for the whole weekend and thank God we did because we needed every second to set up before the big day. Friday we had our rehearsal dinner on the property and really enjoyed having our bridal party hang out and spend time with us the night before (Make sure you confirm with the owners because we were told at last minute that male and female guests couldn't stay in the same house without a chaperone- which we thought was weird considering most of the bridal party was already married to each other). We ended up changing our plans and not having any of the groomsmen stay on the property which turned out alright --the girls had their own fun!! :) The next day went very smooth thanks to our wedding planner (which I highly recommend) and the entire wedding was absolutely beautiful! It was supposed to rain but it held off until the very last minute. I really liked that we had multiple back up plans in case of rain because the venue had spots that were covered but still beautiful. The night of the wedding my husband and I were the only ones that stayed in the house-- It was great not having to drive to a hotel after the wedding. The entire wedding was absolutely amazing and I will never forget this beautiful venue. The only reason I didn't give Fairview Farms 5 stars was due to the lack of communication with the owners. I felt that after Debbie "sold us" on the property it was harder to get in touch with her or her husband Blanton. This is also one of the reasons why we hired a wedding planner so we could work through them instead. Also, on the morning after the wedding Debbie requires you to do a "walk through" on the property with her to make sure everything was put back in its place/not broken, etc. -- well she never showed up. My parents waited there for almost an hour and a half and still nothing. They sat while the cleaning crew cleaned up but still no Debbie or Blanton. It was not a good way to end the wedding weekend. Overall, I loved my wedding and will most likely recommend it to others in the future.
