The Location. McGuire’s Millrace Farm is your premier southern wedding destination. Nestled in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains in Western North Carolina, McGuire’s Millrace Farm specializes in elegant, rustic chic barn weddings. Surround your guests with majestic mountains, rolling fields, peaceful breezes, and the magic that McGuire’s Millrace Farm is all about.
The Barn. Not one of your typical barn venues, the McGuires pride themselves on their facility. This 6,600 square foot barn accommodates small or large events, boasts 30’ ceilings from which hang wrought iron chandeliers, polished concrete floors, beautiful hardwood tables and chairs, and the latest in technology.
The Grounds. Have your ceremony amongst a majestic line of river birches that encompass you and your guests or at the arbor nestled in a rolling field while the carriage horses graze and the mountains rise in the background. Another top choice is at the arched foot bridge amongst the flowers and the placid waters of the pond. And if the weather turns inclement, you can move the entire wedding inside at no extra charge.
The Service. Event planning is a love, passion and lifestyle for the McGuires. Because we have been specializing in the event planning business since 1999, you are ensured southern hospitality at its best. Your Event Planner will be available to assist you every step of the way from welcome parties to morning after brunches; and, on your big day, your event will be the only affair held. This means that the staff will be focused exclusively on you and your guests. At McGuire’s Millrace Farm, you will be treated like family.
The Food. Whether you want a good old fashioned southern barbeque or a 5-course prime rib dinner, McGuire’s Millrace Farm’s award winning chef is sure to please. Display your food in a decorated rustic canoe or in hand hewed wooden bowls. Buffets are elegantly displayed and your guests catered to. It’s all up to you.
The History. Step back in time the instant you arrive on the property. Pre-Civil War and Pre-Depression buildings such as the old homestead, The Country Store and The Corn Crib still stand. For décor, use treasures and antiques discovered in the McGuire’s attics and historic buildings, antique church pews, or oak whiskey barrels.
