Caitlyn Farms, Mill Spring, North Carolina


Nestled at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, is this stunning, one of a kind venue. From the views, to the super unique scenery it offers, I knew this venue would be a long time favorite from start to finish. This venue sits on 500 acres of tranquil land, and offers so much. The venue offers a covered ceremony area, which is perfect for hot summer days with lots of sun, without being too dark for photos. The barn is beautiful and well lit, offering enough room for 300 guests.

What makes this venue so special?


There are so many venues when it comes to a rustic, barn look. But what makes this specific one so great is not only the stunning mountain views, but the unique spots it offers for photos, which is a photographers dream. From the stunning bridal suite, to the trees, one of my favorite parts of this venue was its greenhouse.


I am a total lover of all plants, so this section of the venue really spoke to me and my style. I can't even begin to tell you how many beautiful plants they had in this green house, and they had stunning lights in it as well. They have the most unique greenhouse I have ever seen in a venue. We used it for bridals, and formal photos, as well as some details shots.

There is so much more this stunning venue offers.


Golden hour and dusk was by far my favorite time shooting here. We took the bridal party, and couple to the field and created the most incredible images and fun! The mountain views behind them were amazing. The venue also has a small pond that shows in the background, as well as some trees that were growing. It really gave me "vineyard" vibes, but with trees instead! The colors from the lush, summer greens, and the blue ridge mountains, are really what brought these photos to life. Oh, and our stunning couple of course!

It gets even better...

Just when you think you're in love, let me tell you about the most unique feature at this venue. The "Groomsmen's" Hangout. I was so shocked when I saw that they built an entire groomsmen suite, featuring two renovated vintage campers! I have never seen anything like it in my life. Every detail they put into it was absolutely incredible, and so unique. I know for a fact this would be the selling point for the guys! While I wasn't able to grab any photos of just the campers, I grabbed some with the guys outside of them!

Lastly, The room for the bride.


The bridal suite was outstanding. It was modern, elegant, and the lighting was absolutely magnificent. They had the most unique features, like the mirror, reading nook, and even a gated build in dog house! I'm a sucker for an amazing bridal suite, so this location stole my heart. The photos I got here were some of my favorite from the entire day, and let me just show you why.

This venue will always be one I hope to come back to. Everything it offers is so beautiful, unique, stylish, and perfect for photos. They really thought about things like the lighting, and what will look best in a wedding gallery. I 10 out of 10 recommend this location for your Western North Carolina wedding or elopement.
