Fearrington Newlyweds, June 2018

Gilda, we will always be grateful for the beautiful wedding reception you helped us create for Frances and Johnson at Fearrington. We knew every step of the way that we could count on your experience, expertise and commitment to us. It was truly magical. The Garden Terrace was perfect for a cocktail gathering and The Barn . . . wow, so beautiful! Our guests could not stop talking about the wonderful food and attentive service from the Fearrington staff. Thanks to everyone for their hard work to give us a beautiful celebration . . . cake and flowers were fabulous! We will carry our cherished memories always.

Parents of a Fearrington Bride

Gilda, I wanted to express my belated but very sincere thanks to you for making our wedding day so exceptional. Everything went exactly as we wanted it to, and we could not have been happier. You are truly a master of your craft - which is no small thing given all the details that go into these things. Thank you again for all your hard work.

Fearrington Bride

Gilda, thank you for everything you did to help our wedding reception come together perfectly. You handled everything smoothly and professionally so that [we] could enjoy ourselves. From bringing me rice and chicken to carrying our belongings around to make sure we ended up with them at the end of the night, you truly thought of everything to make our night enjoyable and worry-free. We cannot express how grateful we are. Thank you for helping make it the wedding of our dreams!

Fearrington Newlyweds

Gilda, on behalf of me, [the groom] and my entire family, I want to thank you for everything you did to make our wedding weekend absolutely perfect. You helped us feel at ease from the get-go and there was no stone left unturned when it came to wedding details - you think of everything! Having you there to run the show allowed for me to come into teh weekend completely stress-free and enjoy my time with friends and family. You are the best of the best. Thank you again for making our day perfect!

Fearrington Bride

Gilda, thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding weekend absolutely perfect! Even [the groom], who didn't even want a wedding at first, couldn't stop talking about how great everything was and the exceptional service we received at Fearrington. You were so easy, pleasant, and reassuring to work with and did an exceptional job. I certainly could never have pulled this off without you!

Fearrington Bride

We wanted to tell you how sincerely we appreciate everything you did for us. Gilda, I couldn't have imagined a more wonderful day. I think what really made my heart soar was learning from our guests how much they loved Fearrington. And I think they loved it so much because there was nothing imposing or intimidating about it. In short, it felt to everyone that we were home away from home. And I can't believe how gracefully you handled the tricky weather . . . well actually, I can because you ARE grace! I never for a moment felt anxious about how we would make it through the evening with such a surprising forecast. In fact, I loved the rain. Other things I loved: the cows, the white umbrellas, the bridesmaid suite, the mantle with flowers and lanterns, the hors d'oeuvres that appeared seemingly from nowhere, twinkle lights in the barn, dancing with my boy, and dazzling sparklers. Thank you, you are the best.
