Probably one of the biggest choices that couples face when planning their wedding is choosing the venue. The venue is so important as it sets the overall mood and course of your wedding day. accommodations, space, availability and cost are all resting on your venue. I’ve gotten to meet and work with many venue owners over the course of my career as a photographer and I’ve gathered some info on some local venues to help you learn more about wedding venues in the Shenandoah Valley. Weddings in the Shenandoah Valley are becoming a favorite destination wedding location because of it’s short distance to Richmond, Charlottesville and Northern Virginia. While also having Massanutten, Staunton and Harrisonburg close at hand for accommodations and conveniences.
Most couples select One Eleven South Main because of their elegant formal gardens. These provide the perfect spot for a romantic outdoor ceremony. Apart from the romantic bubling of the courtyard fountain and the boxwood lined brick paths, the predominant feature of their lawn is an amazing oak that spreads it’s branches over the lush grass. This historic property is nestled in the quiet town of Bridgewater, VA lends itself perfectly to brides that desire a refined wedding.
The owner, Alan, says that his favorite part of wedding days is hearing all the comments from wedding guests as they arrive. “Their jaws drop when they first view the property and the ceremony location.”
Weddings at One eleven South Main run roughly $3,000 depending on size of wedding. This includes the use of the grounds from 8am to 10pm. It also includes the bridal suite, groomsman’s pub, the Dinkle Pavilion and Magnolia Cottage with bar. They supply chairs and tables for up to 100, full time attendant on site the entire day, no charge for wedding rehearsal the day prior. Contact them to discuss your event and to check availability.
They offer special pricing for
-Small intimate weddings of 50 people or less. (Which can also be held indoors.)
-Booking for a ceremony only or reception only.
-Weekday weddings discount of $500 off.
I book a limited number of weddings each year. It's not uncommon for spring and fall weekends to book up early.
