Get Married in Harmony, North Carolina!

Voted one of the top 10 historic wedding venues in North Carolina, the Hitching Post Farm offers you a warm and welcoming environment for you to share with the people most important in your life. With over 200 years of history, the beautifully landscaped property is the perfect place for your wedding!

  You will be so thrilled with all we can do for you to make your wedding day be the most it can be!  One of the best things you get by choosing us is our almost 20 years of experience.  Our goal is for you and your family to have the most enjoyable time together possible in a natural, beautiful, and comfortable environment that has been created just for you.  We provide and set up most things for your wedding so you and your family can fully experience all the joy of your wedding day.

Most people book their weddings with the minimum number of people they expect and then they add on additional people, if any, a month before the wedding when they have received responses to their invitations and know how many of those invited are coming.    If you are sending out invitations for 100 people, for example, you might book for 50 and then add on the exact number of people who say “yes” to your invitations just a month before your wedding.

The initial deposit to book your date for these packages is just $500.  We then divide the balance of your contracted amount into monthly payments that are due the same date of each month as your wedding date.   The final payment, along with payment for additional guests, if any, is due a month before your wedding.   It doesn’t get any easier!   
We send you a checklist for planning; you only have to contact one person (your Hitching Post wedding coordinator) about everything provided by our venue for your wedding from the decorations you want, your catering and cake choices, your reception and ceremony music, and more.   You can’t have a more relaxing and enjoyable wedding experience!

We offer a 10% military, educator, or social worker discount on any of our packages with catering included. One service discount per event.
