Charlottesville’s beautiful countryside, rich history and abundance of vineyards have captivated brides and grooms from near and far to choose Jefferson’s Virginia as the place to begin their happily ever after. With so many venues to choose from, finding the perfect location that fits your wedding day vision is easy. For couples searching for a countryside venue, these charming barn settings are perfect.
The Cider Barn at Castle Hill Cider is the perfect backdrop to commemorate a couple’s lifelong dedication to one another. The walls of knotty pine, latticed windows and wide barn doors create a rustic atmosphere, and when dressed up with hanging decorations, like the sparkling chandeliers seen below, the elegance of a Virginia countryside wedding comes to life. On the exterior, the barn boasts views of terraced lawns, a two-acre lake and apple orchards located on Castle Hill’s property, making it ideal for memorable photographs on your wedding day.
After a waterfront ceremony in front of the property’s pond, celebrate your nuptials with your family and friends at The Barn at Edgewood Farm. Situated at the end of winding country roads, the rustic barn is surrounded by elegant views that capture the charming essence of a countryside affair. Inside the venue, wooden beams line the ceilings and a stone fireplace stands tall, allowing for just the right amount of country flair. Large barn doors open to a porch, making it the perfect setting for your guests to enjoy during cocktail hour.
