C. Barton McCann School of Art sets the standard for elegance among nature. Situated on 250 acres of lush green forest, wild flowers, ferns, annuals, and perennials, it is the ideal setting for the wedding of your dreams. Babbling brooks, streams and ponds offer unsurpassed serenity and beauty. Both outdoor and indoor spaces are available for ceremonies, receptions, retreats and parties of all types.

Founded in 2006 by David and Sandy Corneal, The McCann School of Art was created in loving memory of Mr. Corneal's grandfather, Charles Barton McCann. Mr. McCann was an art teacher who had a passion for teaching art in nature to youth. Our event venue helps to fund scholarships for our students and to allow this artistic passion to continue with future generations.

Modern facilities were created to blend perfectly with nature as well as, provide all the creature comforts needed for a comfortable celebration.

Our helpful staff looks forward to assisting you and your guests every step of the way. From the planning phase, to helping your guests park their cars upon arrival, to seeing that the ceremony, reception and clean up go smoothly, we will be there. We want your guests to be comfortable and relaxed, and most of all, we want you to enjoy your day.

We at Fern Hill Weddings will strive to make your wedding or gathering a unique, memorable experience. One that you and your guests will talk about for years to come.
