In layman’s terms, a wedding venue is a place where a wedding is hosted and there is no shortage of them within the state of North Carolina alone. Interestingly, when people think of wedding venues, they think of more luxurious places found in large cities as depicted in mainstream media. Some of those luxuries include fancy hotels, lush gardens, gourmet foods, waitstaff and catering, and maybe even an art gallery. Though these types of wedding venues certainly exist, they’re by no means the only kind.
While it may be a marvellous experience to host a wedding in a big city venue, it can also be quite costly. Fortunately for couples looking to tie the knot, there are other equally splendid venues to host a wedding that can create lasting memories. These venues can be as simple as using a family member’s home or a farm or they can be more “outdoorsy” like a state park, a mountain top, near a river or a lake. A beach is even a popular option.
At The Barn On The New River South Fork, there is a little bit of everything: 100 gorgeous acres of land covered in green grass and lush forests located on North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. The venue is even located near the popular South Fork of the New River and The Barn itself has some luxuries of its own, such as the Swarovski crystal chandeliers and the Dahlia Garden. There is even the Dahlia Suite which is furnished with antique chairs, as well as the Lounge which has a nice bar and comfortable chairs. The Barn also has an outdoor stone cocktail area for relaxing and enjoying the mountain view.
The Barn Offers An Authentic NC Mountain Experience
As a mountain wedding venue in NC, The Barn On The New River offers a quiet, peaceful getaway to marrying couples and their guests who want to have an amazing time without the noise of city life. Apart from the gorgeous scenery, an NC mountain wedding venue like The Barn On The New River has plenty of land to explore. Every guest gets access to the riverfront and beautiful ponds, as well as the gardens, meadows and hayfields.
The Barn On The New River is perfect for nature lovers who love to go for walks surrounded by earthly beauty and explorers who love venturing out into the wide-open fields to discover all of the natural treasures the Blue Ridge Mountains have to offer. The NC mountain wedding venue is equally perfect for photographers who want to capture mesmerizing wedding photos and even gorgeous mountain scenery.
The Barn Has Some Luxuries Of Its Own
In addition to wonderful mountain scenery, The New Barn On The New River has some indoor luxuries as well. While The Barn itself is committed to hosting weddings and doesn’t offer on-site catering, it does offer guests a list of highly recommended caterers to choose from based on their needs. The Barn also has an on-site parking lot and offers shuttle services to guests who need a ride. The Barn staff are also responsible for setting up the tables and chairs inside and outside the NC mountain wedding venue.
Another great thing about The New Barn On The New River is that it has opportunities for both indoor and outdoor activities. Indoors, the NC mountain wedding venue has a lounge that’s furnished with comfortable seating, as well as a bar for guests who bring their own alcohol and bartender. For guests who want a small taste of a past era, The Dahlia Suite is a nice spot for a social gathering that comes furnished with a sofa, antique chairs, a mimosa bar, and a mirror for guests who need to ready themselves for the main event.
For guests who enjoy more outdoor activities, The New Barn On The New River has a large stone cocktail area for guests to chill out, as well as a designated spot for sparklers. The Old Hay Barn is another sweet spot with a covered cocktail area, a fire pit, and a designated area for yard games. During the actual wedding event, the ceremony site comes with a pond that has a dazzling water fountain, as well as an arbor.
The Barn Has Guest Accommodations
To add a finishing touch to this wonder NC mountain wedding venue, The New Barn On The New River provides sleeping accommodations to guests as part of some of the venue’s packages: The Cabin and The Honeymoon Suite.
The Cabin is located on-site and has a maximum of four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a large kitchen, and a dining area. The Cabin also has a living room, complete with a fireplace, a sofa, chairs and a TV. The Cabin’s close proximity to the NC mountain wedding venue makes it convenient for guests to travel and have access to the nearby three ponds.
