Weddings & Events


“If you are looking for a venue that offers beautiful mountain views, an amazing rustic feel, and memories that will last you a lifetime look no further. Seriously! Sawyer Family Farmstead is a wedding dream come true.”  – Blair T.

We LOVE weddings and love that each wedding is uniquely special. At Sawyer Family Farmstead, you are free to design your day in your own way. Whether it is a live artist, specialty food, fabulous dessert bar, live music, personalized vows, or a romantic first look, our experienced staff is here to help your vision become a reality!

A uniquely beautiful and breath-taking view is the perfect place for you to exchange vows and a once in life-time moment.  Our hilltop ceremony site is romantic and sets the tone for a wonderful celebration!  The panoramic view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Lake Glenville welcomes you to soak in the sounds and sites of nature in a way that refreshes your mind and heart.  The hilltop ceremony site can accommodate over 250 guests and surrounded by lush green Frasier fir Christmas trees, mountain laurel, blueberry bushes, and grapevines.  In 2016, the Sawyers added the “Overlook Porch” for guests to enjoy the view while having ice water, shade, and or shelter.  This structure also houses a restroom for everyone’s convenience.  Because the Sawyer’s like to be prepared, not only is the outdoor ceremony site available, but there are two wonderful plan “B” options included at no charge in case of inclement weather! 

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”  – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

 

Romantic lighting surrounds guests at the reception barn, cocktail area, porch, and fire fit for a warm and cozy feel! Tuscan lights and one-of-a-kind chandeliers make for a welcoming space for you and your guests to celebrate in the reception barn that can seat up to 200 with a dance floor. With the farm tables and chivari chairs, this space is not only rustic elegant, but romantic and chic. Out on the deck, guests can enjoy the rocking chairs, sounds of the waterfall, or crackling of the fire pit while visiting and making memories. You can relax and know that your guests will be talking about your event for years to come and how much they enjoyed your mountain wedding!
