Celebration Barn

The Celebration Barn is climate controlled, on the lake, and seats 300 with an expanded patio and deck area surrounded by trees. Nestled near our 3-acre lake, lined with lighted trees and wired for sound, Celebration Pavilion provides the perfect romantic, natural, and exquisite venue for your special day.

Ceremony Sites

Towering over the lake on a rolling hill with views of the NC mountains is the South Wind Ranch Chapel. Pew seating and a charming chapel make this site special and memorable. Option two is the South Wind Ranch Island – located across a walkway bridge on to the lake island. It’s tailor-made for a ceremony, as the island can accommodate the bride and groom plus wedding party while guests sit along the lake bank.

Bridal Suite

Away from the activity is the South Wind Ranch Bridal Suite. Relax and enjoy the preparation stages of your special day. You’ll feel comfortable with parlor chairs, plenty of mirrors, and electrical outlets!
