Asheville wedding photographers love weddings in western North Carolina, because they are always focused on the scenic areas that surround the valley of Asheville. Wedding venues like The Farm in Candler, NC embrace that vibe and the seasons, which in turn provides you with elegance and versatility.
On wedding day, nature is combined with the roots of the area, and presents you with a working equine facility that doubles as one of the top wedding venues in Asheville, NC. The farm comes complete with cabins with wrap around porches, farm-to-table catering from the in house catering team (Chef Mike kills it too!) and a romantic ambiance that is natural and genuine. Its pretty much a one stop shop when looking for a wedding venue, and its one of my favorite venues.
The Farm’s versatile event facilities were designed to embrace the seasons, give a homestead kind of feel while capturing the energy of the mountain views of the mighty Blue Ridge. The property has both indoor and outdoor reception spaces meaning that it can accommodate weddings all year round. The new pavilion space also doubles as a ceremony venue for when its raining. Regardless of where your ceremony takes place, the imagery will be stunning. The backdrops here at The Farm are just perfect and comfortable.
One of the best parts about the venue itself, is that it has on-property cabins that you can rent. This allows everyone to be together, and makes getting ready a breeze. As a photographer being able to bounce back and forth from bride to groom, thats worth its weight in gold. You are able to be fully present with the couple and the feel of the day, and dont have to worry about parking or an Uber. I think this is one of the reasons its called The Farm – A Gathering Place.
It also makes having a first look very easy and less stressful. You can pick from underneath a towering Oak, down a private wooded pathway, in the wildflower garden, and those are just a few.
When it comes time for the ceremony, the backdrop of the towering trees behind their romantic gazebo cant be beat. Its subtle, natural, and makes the light just work in your favor. The angles that you also get from the ceremony are amazing.
They have also just added a new ceremony location that is within the flower garden. Still learning the angles, but very happy with what Bev and Myron have put together.
While we are speaking about the owners, I seriously have never met a couple in my career, that cares so much about a venue and the experience. Its not about money to them, its about hospitality. Thats when you know you have a winner! They care about the experience of a wedding at the farm. That want you to enjoy your special day, nestled into a farm in Candler, NC with the mountains as your backdrop. They want you to experience a gathering place lifestyle.
For your reception, the newly constructed four-season event center, is one of the best in the area. An open air space featuring vaulted ceilings, an indoor stone fireplace, and a wrap-around porch, and some of the coolest reclaimed chandeliers you can find. The mood they invoke for dance imagery is so intimate!
The Farm in Candler, NC is a one stop shop for wedding packages tailored to suit your needs and budget. They are fully customizable, allowing you to add personal touches to your big day. Their in-house team of coordinators, catering staff does it all. This way you can know that everything is being taken care of for your wedding at the farm. Just one of the many inclusive wedding services for any wedding at the farm.
Chef Mike and the culinary staff at The Farm are amazing! I get so excited about working there, because I know the calibar of food i will have for my vendor meal. Seriously one of the best I have had in my 10 years of weddings.
Their menus include options for food prepared and presented buffet-style, station-style, and plated. I always say go with the family style option. That way everyone keeps interacting through dinner. Its also great because if you need something food wise on the fly, the chefs have access to their refrigerators. This way you can fix any dietary issues of your wedding guests, when they may not of been known ahead of time.
They also invite all of the wedding couples to a tasting where they can sample food and wines and meet with the events team. This is so crucial, but also just a great way to enjoy some awesome food!
One of the things that stands out the most to me at The Farm – A Gathering Place, is how I always feel creative when I am at a wedding at the farm. Maybe its because of growing up around horses, there is just something about the vibe of the place that keeps me relaxed. At sunset you can go across the street and walk through a meadow of wildflowers. As you embrace your partner, you can watch the sun set over the Pisgah Ridge in the background. Some of my most memorable sunset wedding photos have been taken in this meadow.
