The Inside Scoop
FROM THE KNOT EDITORS
The First Look
Located in lovely Canton, Georgia, topping one of the highest peaks in Cherokee County, the Fendley Farmstead invites to-be-weds to share a rustic wedding space that celebrates a love of the great outdoors. Situated on 11 acres, this family owned and operated wedding and event facility provides a covered barn and manicured vineyards that make ideal locations for those first-look photos.
The Barn at Fendley Farmstead sits at the top of the hill overlooking the beautiful manicured grounds. Built from rustic wood and stacked stone, the barn's brick and concrete floor provide space for dancing or make an excellent aisle for wedding ceremonies. A central stacked stone fireplace sets the stage for wedding vows and lovely chandeliers and draperies cover the exposed beam ceiling. With space for 300 guests, the Barn has pretty wooden church-bench seating or fun hay bales, open sides for plenty of light and air and huge sliding doors that create a gorgeous entrance.
The Grounds at Fendley Farmstead share space for 300 guests on manicured lawns flanked by blooming sunflowers and meandering vineyards. Southern-style charm begins with pretty split-rail fences and fields of wildflowers creating a backdrop for an outdoor wedding ceremony. Plenty of space for a reception tent or an elegant white pergola makes the grounds an excellent choice for large wedding and reception events.

Words cannot express how beautiful Fendley Farmstead venue is. Dena and her husband Danny are caring people that went way above expectations in making are daughter and son inlaws wedding go as planned. The venue is the perfect place for a wedding/ reception. We had our daughter flown in by helicopter, Danny made sure a area was mowed for them to have a place to land. Dena directed the wedding timing it just right for the wedding party to enter the barn first so that our daughter could make her surprise grand helicopter entrance that no-one at the wedding knew about. The wedding itself was breath taking and could not have happened without Dena and Danny's help. They made it day we will always remember. Our daughter said it was the wedding of her dreams. We have had several people tell us the wedding was beautiful and that it was the wedding of the year. We are forever thankful to Dena and Danny for their kindness in everything they did to make this wedding happen on their beautiful quaint farm. Dena has amazing acessaries that can be used for the wedding/ reception decor. I highly recommend to all to use Fendley Farmstead for your special day.
Clark Wedding May 30th, 2015Reviewed on 10/15/2015
Hey Ladies!! My husband and I got married at Fendley Farmstead almost 5 months ago now, and we could't have been happier. I'm a Southern Belle and my husband is slightly more of a city boy, but we both found Fendley Farmstead perfectly fitting for us. We loved the look of the barns, and that it was outdoors and indoors, and it's rustic, southern, homey, and beautiful. Dena Milner and her daughter, Branigan, were a wonderful help from start to finish. Their services are truly above and beyond. What bride wants to decorate and handle everything for her own wedding? lol Dena offers EVERYTHING!! They booked my hotel for me, set up a nail appointment (if we wanted), did all of the decorating, and catering. The food was amazing and homemade. We also had homemade icecream!! She supplied almost ALL of the decorations; I added just a few small things to go with our theme, (starwars and Clark candy bars -hence our last name) and some picture frames. We had our rehearsal dinner at the venue the night before the wedding, and asked for Dena's catering service's then as well, and it was very intimate and lovely, and the food was terrific. To sum it up My husband and I were very happy and thrilled with the way everything turned out and it made it so much easier for me to not have to handle all of the decorating and catering. Dena and her daughter were very hospitable, easy to talk to, and comforting. They listened to every detail of things that I really wanted and we worked together through the next few months until we got married, and they made it happen. From flowers, decorations, hotel reservations, a place to get ready before the wedding, and the wedding ceremony and reception itself we AMAZING!!! God led us to the right people and the perfect VENUE!! Thanks Dena, and Branigan for everything!!! Y'all are the best!!! - Erin & Phil Clark
Dena was great to work with! She truly cares about making your day the best it possibly could be! Fendley Farmstead is beautiful and a great location for 150 guests or less!
Loved it! Perfect venue! Everything I have ever dreamed of!
My daughter's wedding was beautiful and we received many compliments. The atmosphere is great, especially after dark with the Edison lights and fire pit. Keep in mind that it is a working farm, so if you do your own decorating, buildings and items used will need to be cleaned. The owner's daughter, Brannigan was a jewel. She came in with some helpers and helped break everything down at the end of the evening and we really do appreciate it.
I love the strong family feel of Fendley. The sense of community is really refreshing! I look forward to spending our special day at this venue. The owners have both been very helpful and accommodating.

I just got married here on Labor Day weekend! My husband and I had the perfect day. We hired the owner, Dena, as our coordinator as well as to help us set up the morning of the wedding. Not only does Dena give you the option to rent all of her décor for a reasonable price, but she went above and beyond helping us put it where it needed to go and giving helpful suggestions. She cares so much for each and every couple that uses her venue. She is great at communicating throughout the process, and is so sweet and helpful during the rehearsal and the day of the event. As soon as we first saw the property, it took my breath away just how beautiful it was, and when I met Dena and spoke with her, I knew I wanted to be married here. I had the best experience and the best day and I am so glad we chose Fendley Farmstead!

We all totally enjoyed your special place and you as well! Thanks again, Pam Morris
Our daughters wedding this past weekend was just Amazing! From day one when we met Dena , we knew this was the place for us. The venue is gorgeous, Dena is so sweet and works so hard for the bride and groom. Everything was perfect! My daughter said it was better than she could have imagined. That's everything! Our little girls day was perfect and Dena and her positive and sweet personality made everything so enjoyable. In the middle of a hectic day, Dena even made homemade ice cream for the reception!! It was so yummy! We couldn't have been more pleased with our choice of Fendley Farmstead.
As the parents of the Groom we have to say, IT WAS PERFECT!! A big part of the perfection was the venue! We would definitely recommend Fendley Farmstead! Absolutely wonderful!
Fendley Farmstead is beautiful, everything about it is gorgeous. There are different options for every type of bride. Dena is the best, after looking at venue after venue, The atmosphere is perfect it feels like your at home.
As a wedding planner I have the opportunity to work with many venues throughout the South. This evening I had the pleasure of working with Dena at Fendley Farmstead. The venue is truly unique--there are numerous picturesque vistas that make terrific photographic backdrops. The newly-constructed outdoor pavilion is absolutely stunning, complete with a floor-to-ceiling stacked stone fireplace that makes the perfect backdrop for the ceremony. Dena was a joy to work with, she made my clients, their families, and their guests feel welcome and accommodated their every need. If you are looking for a storybook setting for your special day, Findley Farmstead is the place!
Dena is my favorite she has been the biggest help and refuses to let anything come in the way of the perf ct day for every one. She not only helped with way more than was asked but would never stop improving on everything that is already there. The Pullen and Tillman family is in your debt.

Dena & the entire Fendley Farmstead staff were more than willing and able to accommodate the entire wedding day for our son and daughter-in-law! They are so hospitable and provide so many personal touches that made the day very much a story book day for the wedding party and the guests.

Meet The Owner
I grew up across from what is now Fendley Farmstead. It was my best friend's grandparent's homeplace. As a child, I would jump in the leaves in the front yard of the homeplace. Never in a million years did I ever imagine owning this beautiful piece of the wonderful community I grew up in. I am very excited to share my property with those who are looking for a small piece of heaven on earth.
