A Roanoke County wedding venue claims an equestrian center across the road is deliberately disturbing many of its weddings. But the horse center says it and other neighbors are the ones victimized by loud noise. WFIR’s Evan Jones has the story:

Here are two videos posted by Kidd Carter of Blue Ridge Entertainment, which provides music services for many weddings and receptions:

Triple J Farm owners are not commenting, but Carter says they are allowing him to speak on their behalf. He says in his Facebook post that “Every time I do a wedding at Triple J Farms, the owners of Catawba Equestrian Center make as much noise as they can to ruin weddings to try and put Triple J out of business.”

In its own Facebook post, the equestrian center states in part: “We bush hog the fields, mow the grass and weed eat as needed and as our schedules allow”. And it claims noise from the receptions across the road disrupt their rural area. “If you want peace and quiet perhaps you should try a church; don’t book an event across the street from a working farm and then try and bash people for farming in a farming community. ”
