“Unforgettable Fairytale”

Words cannot fully express the brilliance of The Villa Franca. Carla, Randy, and her team kept the day going so smoothly. Anything that threatened to throw off the day was quickly handled and set on track by this exceptional group of people. Carla worked so closely with me to make sure the day went as planned and honestly, thanks to her help, it was even better than I had hoped. I had the perfect wedding day and couldn’t have asked for better support. The venue was stunning and looked like a fairytale wedding. The team worked so hard to preserve as many flowers and plants as possible with the sudden freeze that happened right before the day of the wedding. Their hard work paid off because the venue grounds were beautiful. The Villa Franca delivered above and beyond for what I wanted from my wedding. If you are considering this venue, look no further because this was easily the best day ever.

“Charming Countryside Wedding “

When my now-husband and I got engaged in June 2022, I was looking for a more local venue that had a rural/homey feel. Because the Villa Franca Estate is a historic house, situated in the middle of rolling fields, it was the perfect location for our outdoor wedding and ceremony! In the days leading up to our wedding, Carla was extremely helpful and would frequently touch-base with me to make sure we were on the same page. And during the final walk-through with our wedding planner, we were able to iron out where the ceremony would take place (in front of the house with the metal arbor) — which was different than what they typically do, but both Randy and Carla were quick to tell me that they could make it work.

On the day of our wedding, my bridal party and I arrived at the venue in the morning, and members of the Villa Franca Team (Amanda and Avery) had laid out snacks and drinks for me and the girls. And when my husband and I had our first look, Randy escorted me on the Gator, to the covered bridge, so that my dress wouldn’t get any grass stains on it (since it had rained a bit the night before). To be clear — I wasn’t thinking about these details at all because I just wanted to get married ???? But I’m thankful Carla and Randy provided their expertise, quickly responding to minor problems so that we could simply enjoy the day and the people we were with. Altogether, the Villa Franca Estate was the perfect venue for our wedding — and I’m grateful for all the work Carla, Randy, and their team put into making our day special.

“Magical Wedding: Unforgettable Moments at Villa Franca”

Carla, Randy and the entire Villa Franca crew made our wedding day absolutely magical. Our guests raved the entire night about how amazing and stunning the venue was. It truly was like out of a Disney movie in the best way possible. You can see the love these two owners have for their venue. The venue is in rural NC and honestly, the perfect location. No loud cars, trains, restaurants, etc. It was just peaceful and perfect. Thank you again for letting us have our special day at your wonderful venue!!

“A Hidden Gem at Villa Franca”

The Villa Franca was the perfect setting for our wedding. Everything was beautiful and Randy and Carla were helpful and accommodating. Carla even decorated the arbor when my florist canceled last minute. I am so grateful for all they did for us. I highly recommend this beautiful venus and the owners. I am so glad I found this hidden treasure in China Grove NC.
