What We Do

We host and cater wedding ceremonies & receptions on our farm, which is located about thirty minutes outside of Greensboro, NC. We can accommodate up to 150 guests on our property.
We provide the following for our wedding clients:
1. A simple planning process for the bride & groom. We believe a wedding should be fun and exciting to plan, not stressful.
2. A beautiful, natural environment. Our decorations are gardens, goats, and chickens!
3. Delicious, farm-fresh food at your reception. All of our food is made from ingredients sourced from our farms or other local farms.
4. A comfortable atmosphere in which you (and your guests!) can relax and truly enjoy your wedding.

Alex & Alex, 11/06/2010

Alex and Alex had their rehearsal dinner at the Dairy the night before their wedding. Their guests not only got an extra Goat Lady Dairy meal, but they also got to spend some time on the farm before the wedding day.

Set Up for Alex & Alex, 11/06/2010

Although I do not have the official photographs from Alex & Alex's wedding yet, I wanted to post these photos that I received from Lauren Gordon. Lauren was Alex Blake's wedding planner and she was awesome to work with! Lauren has her own wedding planning business called Fairy Tale Weddings.

 The following photographs of the Dairy were taken by Katie Quilter, a photographer who took some set-up shots for Lauren.
Thanks for sharing these, Katie!

 A lot of work went into making the farm look like Alex, the bride, had imagined. But with the help of her wedding planner, Lauren Gordon, Alex & I made the Dairy look just like she had hoped! She had tons of wonderful ideas about ways to decorate the farm.

  Alex brought a bunch of paper globes that we hung from the rafters in the Main Barn.

 We used lots of small vases to decorate the tables, rather than having a table centerpiece.

These cocktail tables on the side porch served as great place for guests to visit.

The backdrop for Alex's ceremony site was "farm elegant" at its finest. She found two old windows that we hung on a tree branch, and she placed a table filled with flowers in front of the windows.

 Check back soon for more images of the Alex & Alex Wedding!

Rachel & Tony, 10/09/2010

Rachel and Tony were the first couple to have both their ceremony and reception at the Dairy. We had fun finding the perfect spot for the ceremony site!
Watching Rachel and Tony say their vows made us feel like we were celebrating with them at their reception!

 Rachel was a beautiful bride in her antique dress and brown boots (and, occasionally, a beer!). She wrote GLD the kindest letter after her wedding. "Thank you so much for all your hard work and help with our wedding. We had a fabulous time and have heard nothing but positive feedback from our guests."

The Wedding Party enjoyed themselves into the wee hours of the night. In fact, I think the roosters may have been crowing during this last picture.

Jen & Rose, 9/25/2010

Jennifer and Rose were the first couple to have their wedding reception at the Dairy. We had a fabulous time working with them and their reception went off without a hitch!
Jessica Trotman photographed the reception. She got some beautiful shots of both the couple and the Dairy!
