AN ASHEVILLE FARM WEDDING
If your vision includes outdoor beauty, a pond, mountain views, and a comfortable setting that your guests will enjoy, we are the place for you! The venue is located on 50 acres of secluded forest and farmland, with open vistas and mountain views. The one acre Green Heron Pond has a pier that makes a wonderful ceremony site, with room on the banks for seating your guests. A grassy cove with panoramic views of the mountians and pond is another option as a ceremony site.
You would have access to the 1500 square foot modern pavilion with vaulted paneled ceilings, ceiling fans, string lighting, attached bathrooms, wireless internet and a catering prep area. The pavilion overlooks the pond, and is the perfect setting for a wedding reception for parties with up to 100 guests. If the night is cool, clear roll down sides and heaters will keep you and your guests warm. Larger weddings recepitons are held in a tent on the adjacent, 7,000 square-foot Event Lawn that enjoys the same views of the pond and mountains. It is also a wonderful place for cocktail hour, games, or other outdoor activities. After your reception, a large fire pit will be ready for you and your guests.
A lovely 2 bedroom cottage for changing and relaxing is included in the venue rental. The cottage is designed with separate entrances and dressing areas for the wedding couple, and has a grand porch and stairway for photos! The cottage is also available for overnight rental. In addition, you can use the entire 50 acres for wedding photos and, upon arrangement, have use of the venue for two hours for your rehearsal.
The Farm at Green Heron Pond offers many practical advantages for your wedding. We are located in a quiet valley surrounded by mountains, woods and rolling pastures, but we are less than 20 minutes from downtown Asheville. A large parking lot makes it easy for guests and delivery trucks to come and go. Caterers and musicians will appreciate the availability of electricity and water. You can choose your own vendors, or select from our preferred list.
The Farm can also be rented overnight or for the weekend and makes the perfect home base for all your wedding festivities. These packages include overnight stays in the Cottage, camping, and full use of the venue during the rental period.
