VENUES WITH VIEWS: FIND THE PERFECT PLACE TO SAY ‘I DO’
The beauty of the Northern Shenandoah Valley serves as a backdrop for love for hundreds of couples each year, who say “I do” surrounded by scenic fields, the winding Shenandoah River and rolling mountain ranges.
Tie the knot against a backdrop of the Blue Ridge and Massanutten mountains at a unique venue with breathtaking views — no matter which one you choose. From open-air pavilions, renovated barns, lavish banquet rooms, rustic lodges and scenic parks, Luray and Page County offer an array of ceremony sites and reception spaces.
The possibilities are endless: walk down an aisle of vintage wooden floors or lush green grass; take a twirl on a dance floor beneath starry night skies or high ceilings and chandeliers; share a home-style meal around a table in a modern barn or savor fine cuisine served in an elegant reception room.
Let your littlest guests — and the young at heart — soak in the scenery with an outdoor photo booth against the Blue Ridge and an activity corner filled with horse shoes, corn hole and photo props. Choose an outdoor venue with a fire pit for s’mores and conversation after dark or an indoor gathering spot for champagne toasts and speeches. Many of our venues offer both. Or celebrate your commitment and and the culmination of your wedding day with a finale of fireworks and sparklers.
With the mountains, river, forests and views — and so many unique venues — it’s no wonder Luray and Page County were ranked as the nation’s No. 2 wedding location by TLC (The Learning Channel) to say “I do.”
LODGING AND LOVE FOR ALL
Luray and Page County are an ideal escape for romance and adventure for couples as well as their guests. Because of our proximity to Northern Virginia, Charlottesville and Richmond, the area serves as a road trip destination for many, offering options for day trips, overnight stays or weekend getaways — on any budget.
Book a cozy cabin, a rustic family hideaway or a larger lodge in Virginia’s Cabin Capital. With more than 400 cabins to choose from, there’s plenty of room for everyone on your guest list to celebrate your love and stay for a night — or two.
Spend the night before your special day with your wedding party or family in bunk houses and cabin estates with sweeping front-porch views of the Valley, relaxing hot tubs and picture-perfect backdrops for photos before the ceremony. Many are located on site or a short drive from your wedding venue. After the wedding, retreat with your beloved to a romantic hideaway to begin your honeymoon.
In addition to cabins, we offer options for hotels, motels and inns, many that offer special block rates to accommodate your group and help transport your guests to and from the wedding venue. Bed and breakfasts and country homes are also available to host your guests, whether they’re staying for a night or staying after the big day for an extended family getaway.
VENDORS WITH VISION
On your big day, it’s the little things that matter most. From centerpieces and bouquets, to cakes and cuisine and all your other wedding-day details, vendors in the Valley are ready to turn your vision into reality.
It’s been said that in a small town, everyone knows everyone, and that’s often the case with Valley wedding vendors. Most have spent years working with local venues and each other to ensure that each special day is a once-in-a-lifetime occasion. And with so much experience, they know all the best spots, secrets and sentiments to make sure your special day extra special.
Let a local florist transform your venue with flowers galore, or keep it sweet and simple. Book a band or a DJ to help you dance the night away. Plan your menu with a caterer based on seasonal flavors, Southern favorites or your personal palate. Cheers to forever after with local spirits and decadence with a custom desserts table of pies, cookies, cakes and take-away treats. Work with a Shenandoah Valley photographer to capture all the moments and romance of the day in a valley that offers views and splendor at any season.
From officiants and florists, to planners and photographers, to food and fun, Luray and Page County vendors offer a full gamut of services. Our Valley vendors are some of the best in Virginia, focused on the smaller details that form the big picture of your big day.
AFTER ‘I DO’: MORE TO DO
There’s so much to explore in the Great Outdoors in Luray and Page County. Home to Shenandoah National Park, Luray Caverns and the Shenandoah River, there’s more to do before and after “I do” in the Valley.
Connect with family — or reconnect with extended family brought together to celebrate your love — in your cabin or lodge. Kick back in a rocking chair on the front porch or settle in next to a backyard campfire with family stories and laughs. Make new memories together around the kitchen table with a home-cooked meal or carry-out from a Page County restaurant or eatery.
Take on an outdoor adventure with good friends and members of your wedding party before you tie the knot: float the day away on the Shenandoah River on tubes or in kayaks or canoes; take a hike along 500 miles of trails, including 101 miles of the Appalachian Trail, in Shenandoah National Park; or strengthen your bond and build teamwork with a ropes course challenge, zipline adventure or Escape Room mystery.
From ATV excursions and horseback riding in the Blue Ridge and Massanutten mountains, to fishing expeditions on the Shenandoah River, to exploring the underground wonder of Luray Caverns, your wedding guests have plenty of fresh-air adventures to choose from — mountain memories from an unforgettable celebration of love.
