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., 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 a beautiful setting 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 décor, tables, chairs, linens, centerpiece items, graphic design services, parking attendant, and even all your long burning candles, 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 the stress and those added expenses. We allow you to drop off items including your own alcohol days before your wedding, and come back the next day to pick anything up, so you have the luxury of time to relax on your wedding day. We rent our Main Barn 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 how we can make your wedding day spectacular!
