Of all the decisions that we had to make while planning our wedding, booking Big Spring Farm was probably the easiest and best decision we made. We visited quite a few venues in Central Virginia, all were of course beautiful, but Big Spring Farm was different. It was magical. Do not hesitate to book this venue. It's incredibly special and the best investment.

What words can I use to capture the dream that is Big Spring Farm? We visited just one venue and fell in love with it. When our guests asked why we picked Lexington, we told them to wait until they saw Big Spring Farm, and during the wedding they told me they understood. If you are looking for a natural oasis encircled by mountains and that includes a gorgeous barn that is the perfect balance of rustic and elegant, a beautiful large body of water, delicate willow trees, a fire pit, and acres and acres of lush green beauty-- don't look any further.

About us

We're Buddy, Jill (Knox, Monroe, Scout, and Sunday) Powers, the owners of Big Spring Farm, and we could not feel more blessed to share our property with so many wonderful couples on one of the most special days of their lives!

Big Spring is the fruition of a dream that started on our own wedding day, in our backyard, at our first farm in the Shanendoah valley. After 11 years as wedding photographers (gah that makes us sound old), all the while running a sustainable livestock farm, we found that our deepest passions lie in caring for the land and celebrating the covenant of marriage.
