Cloud 9 Relaxation

Outdoor Weddings


Cool and shady “Cathedral in the Woods” for your back-to-Nature wedding.

So, you are looking to save money?
Have your wedding just 20 minutes outside of Asheville in the Fairview countryside and pretend you are on your own, private “Biltmore Estate.” Several beautiful venues here on Cloud 9 Farm for the DIY wedding. Not only weddings but Peterson Pond is available for a wide variety of business picnics, family reunions or birthday parties in the summer. We provide the setting, you provide everything else.

1. Cathedral in the Woods (or we call it “Stump Henge”) consists of a beautiful copper-topped timber framed arch in the woods across the stream from the pond. Stumps are lined up in a circle for sitting or we have 25 white plastic chairs and wooden benches you can arrange. We’ve had weddings of 10 people to 200 people standing and sitting in a cozy embrace of support for the wedded couple. Great ceremonial area. Cool in the summer shade. Electrical outlet. Parking close by. Walk to Peterson Pond for the reception.

Outside wedding is fun!

2. Peterson Pond has been used for recreation and relaxation by our family for years. Summer afternoon sun is shaded by the trees. You can set the alter near the stone waterfall, under the Chestnut Tree, or on the sandy beach. You can enter from the blueberry patch or from the gateway. You must come see the venue for yourself to see what a large space it is and how you can define it with a 40’x60’ tent, rented chairs and tables or hay bales.

Outside weddings with a mountain laurel arch give it a rustic touch.

3. Cloud Relaxation Home Deck has seen many weddings and receptions. It has the long-range mountain view, seating with our white chairs on the deck with the sliding windows opened wide for seating in the shade. Or choose the beautiful brick hearth for a backdrop to your vows. By renting Cloud 9 and Heavenly Hideaway cabin you will have a place for guests to stay, you to primp, and the private cabin for your honeymoon so you can still stay and visit with the family that has come so far to see you.

4. Rent the Whole Farm! Yes, that means you will have access to both vacation rentals, Peterson Pond and rustic camping for your friends that don’t want to go home after the wedding. We can discuss this more when you come to see the farm.
