18 Stunning Southwest Virginia Wedding Venues

It’s one of the most important decisions you’ll make as a couple – where you’ll say, “I do.”

It might be “all downhill after the dress,” but it’s the venue that sets the backdrop for the entire wedding. It speaks to who you are as a couple and should feel authentically ‘you.’ Don’t be swayed by what’s trendy. Your wedding venue’s aesthetic should match your own. So, is your vibe more natural, outdoorsy, and rustic? Are you romantic, dreamy, and soft? Or would you describe your style as classically elegant and sophisticated?

No matter which ambience you hope to create, you’ll find the perfect wedding venue in Virginia’s Great Southwest.

We’ve got 18 unforgettable locations to meet your wants and desires… as well as the demands of your budget and guest list.

Where do you envision your ideal wedding?

There’s one thing you won’t have to sacrifice. The photos. Because, if there’s one thing we have lots of, it’s stunning backdrops.

Just imagine.

The two of you gripped in a passionate embrace with miles and miles of the rugged Appalachian Mountains in the distance. The graceful lines of your veil falling across your back as you look out from the balcony of a historic mansion. Your hand clasped in his with the backdrop of rows and rows of grapevines slightly out of focus behind you.

It all starts with the venue. Find the right location for you.
