Top Places for Shenandoah Valley Weddings

You don’t have to look far to find a picturesque wedding venue in the Shenandoah Valley. Whether it’s a farm, vineyard, or scenic location in a national park, it’s not hard to see why Shenandoah Valley weddings are the best. Here are a few of the most beautiful locations for Shenandoah Valley weddings!

Barn Weddings

Barn weddings in Shenandoah Valley are very popular because of the unparalleled scenery. The Barn at Klines Mill is just 6 miles from Harrisonburg in Linville, Virginia. One of the most frequented barn venues, this location boasts scenic views of rolling hills and a gorgeous wood-finished barn for the reception.

The Crosskeys Barn in Harrisonburg is perfect for rustic, charming Shenandoah Valley weddings. The original structure is more than 100 years old but has been restored and expanded to include an outdoor deck where guests can enjoy the stunning view of the valley.

Vineyard and Farm Weddings

Another popular Harrisonburg location is On Sunny Slope Farm. With 67 acres, this venue features everything that makes Shenandoah Valley weddings so special—a peaceful farm with a Blue Ridge Mountains backdrop. At The Columns at Six Penny Farm, you can choose a rural, outdoor setting on the magnificent lawn, which faces the mountains. Or, choose to host your wedding inside the sophisticated Jeffersonian-style house!

Exchange your vows from the top of the beautiful hills in Bridgewater, Virginia while surrounded by 360 views of the nearby mountains at Bluestone Vineyards. Enjoy your special day outside on the farm, or host the event in the Meeting House with large windows still offering spectacular views.

Other Outdoor Weddings

For a unique twist on Shenandoah Valley weddings, book Edith J. Carrier Arboretum and Botanical Gardens as your venue. Say “I Do” amongst the lush gardens for an experience you and your guests will remember for a lifetime.

Shenandoah Valley National Park is more than just a great place to explore, it’s one of the best spots to tie the knot on the East Coast. Weddings in the Shenandoah National Park feature the best mountain views in the area.
