Happy Thanksgiving!

As we approach one of my favorite holidays, it's easy to reflect on an amazing wedding season at the farm.  We're so thankful for our clients (past and present), amazing Claxton Farm staff, and our industry partners that have made this year such a success.  We're looking forward to a holiday season full of Christmas parties and the first New Year's Eve wedding at the farm! We'll (mostly) be out of the office enjoying travel and family next week, so we'll leave you with gorgeous images from October weddings in the meantime:

We wish you a joyous holiday spent with those you love!

Lindsey & Micah

P.S.  Micah will be available by phone and email for any questions that may pop-up over Thanksgiving!  Give her a call at 828-658-1390 or email

P.S.S  The image above was taken by The Beautiful Mess at Colleen + Chris' morning wedding.

Nearing Completion

Team....sorry it's been so long since updates.   Things have been happening so quickly at the Farm that, every time I would take a photo, there would be a significant change the next day!    Here are some photos that I took yesterday morning.   We're anticipating that final inspections will be done this week.  Our first event is less that two weeks on May 1!!!   There's still some trim to paint, etc, but we're really close to done complete.

"A Bee Hive" of activity today!


Although I don't have any exciting photos  to share with you today, I can tell you that work is really underway at the New Claxton Farm  Event Barn.   Block Masons are working on the stone fireplace, electricians and heating & cooling contractors are working on site, carpenters are putting in windows and more!   The barn roof is on and the building dried in.   I will post more photos when the Red Tin is placed on the roof, hopefully this week.

Thanks so much,

Photo Update!


Thanks so much for your, Mother Nature sure has thrown us a few curve balls lately.  However, that has not stopped our progress.   Micah was on site a couple of days ago and snapped these photos with her phone and forwarded to me.   Construction is progressing and we are still on track for our April completion of the new Event Barn at Claxton Farm.   Hope you enjoy the photos....I'll try not to be so long between updates from now on!

Foundation being poured today!


A crew is on site pouring the floor/foundation for our new event barn at Claxton Farm.   This is exciting news!  As soon as the concrete sets, we can begin to build UPWARD!   That will certainly make for more visible progress.   Keeping checking this blog for updates!

Foundation work almost complete!


Here are some photos of the foundation prep that has been done.   All inspections are complete and the foundation should be poured today/tomorrow.   It's been quite tedious work for plumbers and the contractors as they MUST ensure that floor drains, conduits, etc are located in their exact locations.....obviously they can't be moved after tons of concrete is poured!   Once the concrete sets, you will start to see the building grow UP!

Thanks so much!
