Wedding of our dreams!Reviewed on 11/20/2015 Ashley B
We absolutely loved having our wedding at Gambill farms; the owner Eric was so easy to work with and was available at any time to answer any of our questions. He was also helpful with helping us decide the best layout and schedule for our wedding; he really went above and beyond his role as owner to ensure our experience was the best that it could be. The estate itself is gorgeous and even though it is very pretty in pictures it doesn't even compare to being there and seeing it all in person. The land is so nicely manicured and estate layout is very organized. Inside the estate is very nice with a very shabby chic feel. The inside could be decorated up or beautiful enough for a simple less decorated wedding. The bridal room was my most absolute favorite part of it all!!! The bridal room took this most beautiful pictures and has all the amenities that you and your bridal party would need. Eric truly made our wedding dreams come true and I promise you will not be disappointed if you pick Gambill farms!!
I officiated a wedding at this venue and it was wonderful! The building itself is beautiful inside and out and the scenery! It was simply beautiful but the staff was also very nice and easy to work with. They worked hard to ensure the success of the event. Great experience!
We got married at Gambill Estate in September and wholeheartedly recommend this beautiful venue. During the planning process, Gambill Estate was the third venue we looked at. As soon as we drove down the small country road and saw the picturesque property and mountainside views, we knew that we absolutely had to get married there. The location felt quintessentially "North Carolina," and was an inspiration in itself! A few things differentiated Gambill Estate from other venues we looked at and they stood out to me very quickly: First, the property owner Eric has extraordinary taste when it comes to aesthetics. The venue's fixtures and finishes are lovely and up-to-date. The bridal suite is gorgeous- my photographer and hair & makeup artists could not stop talking about what a dream it was. Shortly before our wedding, Eric had crystal chandeliers installed in the main reception area and they elevated the entire room to the next level! He also maintains the property meticulously. He has established certain guidelines when it comes to utilizing the venue, but all of them were fair and in the best interest of couples enjoying the venue now and in the future. Other venues we looked at showed more wear and tear and were not maintained nearly as well. Eric knows what he is doing and pays close attention to detail. Since I am a direct, Type-A kind of person, I really enjoyed working with him. Throughout the planning process, he was solution-oriented and made some great vendor recommendations. Our ceremony and reception decor included a *lot* of details, and Eric was helpful throughout the entire experience. My husband and I and our families are so thankful to him and are already looking for a reason to have another celebration at the Estate in the future!
Gambill Estate is an amazing venue. The beauty alone speaks for itself, from natures aspect to the venue. Eric has done and continues to do an incredible job! He is great! Kind courteous and extremely helpful. I'm so happy we stumbled upon it online. Truly was our dream venue and the best day of my life! We thank you so much for everything!
Simply the best experience! Beautiful scenery and an exceptional caretaker!
The owner, Eric, was very easy to work with. He is accommodating and always available for advice/help. The venue itself is gorgeous! It has everything you need there with great facilities and all on beautiful property!
Gambill farm is truly amazing! Eric went above and beyond to accommodate us on our special day. The new renovations make the place that much better. The outdoor ceremony site is just perfect with large oak trees and breath taking view! The reception barn was large enough to comfortably accommodate all 100 of our guests and is very warm and romantic! I can't recommend this place enough! Eric has poured time and passion into the farm and it shows in every detail!
Amazing Venue!Reviewed on 9/02/2015 Mary B
Having my wedding at Gambill Farm was one of the easiest decisions we made. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and Eric was amazing to work with. All of our guests loved it as well. Easiest and BEST decision we made!
Gambill Farm is truly a top notch venue. Eric has put a lot of heart and passion into this place and it shows through with the attention to detail and upkeep. The new addition is absolutely beautiful and this venue is one of the most requested around the area. You will not be disappointed in dealing with Eric and your guests will love the views, nature and elegance that Gambill Farm has to offer!
I must say that the property is fantastic. It has beautiful views and is a great setting for a country wedding. That's where the accolades stop. The main building is nice, but some major safety concerns need to be addressed. First is the deck. The gaps in the deck were large enough for women in heels to continually get their heels stuck. This happened all night and seemed to be shrugged off by the owner. Second is the floor in the main room. It's polished concrete which looks nice and is incredibly easy to clean up, but becomes VERY slick when wet. In our case, someone slipped and severely injured himself. Again, this was overlooked by the owner. Another major issue I have is that he flat out refused a mother and her infant baby to sit on the only couch in the entire building. He is very uptight and given that the mother was the sister of the bride who was paying him, he should have allowed it. It's unacceptable to me that the paying customer and her family be treated in this manner. Worst case, the bride buys a new couch for him. Instead, the mother/baby were forced to sit on the incredibly uncomfortable dinner chairs for the entirety of the night. The owner is new at this business and needs to address these concerns if he wishes to stay in business and get recommendations. Because of this, I wouldn't recommend this place. The risks outweigh the reward in my opinion.
dreamy outdoor mountain wedding.Reviewed on 9/07/2014 Danielle G
Gambill Farm was the perfect venue for the outdoor wedding my husband and I were envisioning. Tucked away right outside Wilkesboro,NC, the mountains made for the most beautiful backdrop on the misty August day we got married. We got married under a tree and walked down the hill to have our reception in the dreamy barn on Gambill's property. Eric Gambill was such a huge help the day of our wedding as well as the months leading up to our big day. He did so much to help make our dream wedding become a reality: from meeting us at the venue multiple times before our wedding to helping hang things the day of. This property is gorgeous and Eric is incredibly welcoming. I cannot recommend this venue highly enough!
