Finding the right Virginia wedding venue can be a daunting task. Your chosen location has to hit all the right notes and with so many options to choose from, it can be a little overwhelming. May we suggest Blue Valley?
Over the years, our family-owned and operated winery has hosted scores of weddings and hundreds of other types of events. Before you make a firm decision either way, why not bring a group of your friends out to our estate for a wine tasting?

An Overview Of Our Virginia Wedding Venue Options
To give you some idea of what you can expect to see when you arrive, here’s a quick overview of the spaces we have available.
The Celebrations Room
This is our largest Virginia wedding venue, with a capacity of more than 200 people. Normally, it serves as our main tasting room, but over the years, it has hosted some of the most exquisite weddings and receptions the state of Virginia has ever seen. It boasts two different bars, both handcrafted from two-hundred-year-old oak harvested from the estate itself, and then handcrafted into the functional works of art you see on display in the room.
The two bars are complimented by Bistro lights, high ceilings with exposed wooden beams and a cozy fireplace. The room also offers a trio of large flat-screen TVs in case you want to show your guests a memorable video or two of you and your intended, and in addition to that, its large windows offer stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
This is a fantastic option for large wedding parties, and if you find yourself in need of even more space, the Loft, which we’ll talk about next, is an excellent choice to book in tandem with this room, since it looks down into the Celebration Room.
The Loft provides a great view of the Celebration Room which sits below it on one side, and a panoramic view of the Blue Ridge Mountains on the other. It features unique and beautiful chandeliers and a stunning marble fireplace that must be seen to be fully appreciated. Capable of accommodating up to 120 guests, it’s perfect for all but the largest weddings and a great compliment to the Celebration Room if you have an exceptionally large number of guests who plan to attend.
The Heritage Room
Enjoy a glass of sparkling Blue Valley wine with up to sixty of your guests in the lovely Heritage room! Beautiful chandeliers and skylights provide a warm, golden glow to this room, which is enhanced by two very different views from the expansive windows. On one side, you can see our lovely vineyard, and on the other, you’re treated to a fabulous view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. In addition to that, from here, you have direct access to our Sunset Terrace, providing a wonderful mix of indoor and outdoor access.
The Traditions Room
With a private bar, high ceilings and access to our spacious veranda, this venue is a fantastic option for people who want to give their guests the option of taking the fun either indoors or out, weather permitting. The room features a large number of windows which gives it a bright, airy feel while providing picturesque views of the vineyard itself. It’s large enough to accommodate up to 80 guests, making it a great Virginia wedding venue for medium-sized wedding parties.
One of our most unique rooms, The Cave is one part-time machine and one part magical, unforgettable event space. It’s our smallest room, only capable of accommodating up to 40 guests, so this one won’t be for everyone, but if you want a themed wedding and are looking for a space that will make you and your guests feel as though you’ve been transported back to Medieval times, this room belongs on your shortlist for consideration.
It offers a gorgeous blending of farm tables, candle-draped chandeliers and wine barrels that combine with the hand-laid stonework to create an unbelievably beautiful and interesting aesthetic. This is also one of the rooms we’ll take you through on our tour of the facility, so if you’d like to get a firsthand look, that can easily be arranged!
The Barrel Room
The Barrel Room is a wonderfully rustic option capable of accommodating up to 120 guests. The room, like the Cave, described above, transports you to another age when you step into it. The centerpiece is, of course, the rows of American and French barrels that grace the room, and the overall aesthetic is enhanced by hand-cut stonework on the walls, made all the more remarkable by the fact that all the stone was taken from the property itself.
Like The Cave, this venue won’t be for everyone, but when you see it, if it sparks something in your imagination, it’s an excellent option with vast potential.
The Bridal Suite
Although your wedding day is undoubtedly a time of joy, it’s also a time of incredible stress and chaos. Planning the perfect day is no easy feat. It feels as though there are a million different details to attend to, and no matter how organized you are, on the actual day of the wedding, it often feels like things are on the verge of spinning out of control.
That’s exactly why brides need a space of their own to retreat into and regroup, and that’s exactly why we created the Bridal Suite. It’s delightfully comfortable and designed to give you back your calm center, allowing you to focus on enjoying the day.
Which of these sound most interesting to you? If you have questions about any of them, or questions about our winery before coming out to spend an afternoon with us, just give us a call!
