If you're even a little obsessed with Pinterest, then you've come accross the farm wedding trend. Bistro lights, lots of lace, and beautiful rolling farmland views are hard to resist. What I love about farm weddings is the natural lighting and simplicity. Below is a curated list of romantic, rustic Virginia venues that will make your vision a reality.
This secluded venue features a stunning manor house, gazebo, fire pit, and endless gardens. The organic beauty of this historical farmland and estate will help save money on flowers and other decor. There is a wide array of flowers with flitting butterflies and hummingbirds dancing across the venue.
A family-owned farm, this venue offers captivating views of the mountain ranges of Lynchburg. Highlights of this venue include a reflection pond, wooden gazebo, large dock, vintage barn, and pergolas perfect for photos.You can't leave without taking a picture on the old-fashioned swing from one of the oldest and largest poplar tress in the county.
Panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and beautiful meadows and grasslands, On Sunny Slope Farm is a truly astonishing backdrop for both your ceremony and reception. With three flexible venue spaces, they specialize in personalized weddings. My favorite location of theirs is the barn, their redesigned indoor venue.
If rustic chic is what you're aiming for, look no further than the Mount Ida estate and Event barn. Picture yourself dancing the night away surrounded by crystal chandeliers, timber ceilings, and fountains. Your wedding will truly feel like a fairytale. What makes this farm special is the waterfront view of the lake, where you can say "I Do" in their rustic gazebo.
Their name sake, the "Big Spring," is one of the biggest natural springs in all of Virginia. It forms the incredible 10-acre lake at the center of the grounds. You have the option of being married in their barn, lawn space, or waterfront ceremony location.
For a secluded getaway, you'll want to check out this historic venue and farm that includes a colonial style Manor House. Unlike many venues, Seven Springs offers accommodations for daytime and overnight guests. The canopy of historic magnolia trees will make you feel like you're in a movie. With beautifully manicured lawns and several charming cottages, this venue feels like an escape from reality.
If you're set on having an outdoor wedding, but worry about the possible chance of rain, Shadow Creek offers the perfect solution. Their front portico is an outdoor venue, but features a sturdy covering, which offers both shade and protection from any unwanted rain. When you book here, you will have private access to the entire facility.
While the name may suggest that you can only get married in the barn, Panorama offers multiple ceremony locations. The Hill offers panoramic views of the the Blue Ridge Mountains. If that does not suit your taste, try The Grove, a beautiful grove of hardwood trees just a few yard uphill from the barn. The Barn recently went through a series of renovations to extend its beauty for the years to come. Wooden walls and natural light will serve as a canvas to customize the space for your big day.
Located a mere twenty minutes from downtown Charlottesville, this romantic countryside estate is a whimsical delight. Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, this venue features lovely gardens and landscapes. It is absolutely perfect for an outdoor, farm wedding.
