I may be a little biased, but I think West Virginia is one of the most stunning states in the country. Its rich history, dynamic landscapes, and natural features are beautiful every time of year but even more special when used as a backdrop for an unforgettable wedding. Thinking about getting married here? I don’t blame you!! Here are a few of my favorite wedding venues in West Virginia.
The Barn at Woodridge is an amazing venue for a wedding with outdoor countryside vibes. Say “I do” overlooking stunning mountains and rolling hills before celebrating in their rustic, beautiful Barn event space. Cowboy boots and denim jackets fit in just fine at The Barn at Woodbridge!
Mia Bella Grande is a gorgeous, renovated estate on over 80 acres of beautifully preserved ponds, woodlands, and gardens. It has a variety of flexible outdoor spaces to accommodate weddings of various sizes. After your lovely outdoor ceremony, enjoy an elegant tented reception on the lawn.
Stone House Lavender Farm is home to a bright and spacious event barn with crystal chandeliers and private getting-ready suites for both partners and their parties. Host your ceremony outside amidst bright purple lavender fields for a truly unique – and beautifully fragrant – touch.
Highgate Carriage House boasts a beautiful historic building, gorgeous stone walls, and vibrant, lush gardens for a stunning wedding venue. Use the interior of the Carriage House for a cozy, indoor wedding, or host a larger gathering in a tented reception on the magnificent grounds.
The historic Blennerhassett Hotel has been a symbol of West Virginia grandeur for over a century. Celebrate your love story on their tented patio, or host a lavish reception in their elegant ballroom. This is an excellent location for couples with a vision that is a little more formal, urban, and contemporary.
Brown Oaks is a newly restored Colonial home that makes for an elegant, classic-looking wedding venue. Its front steps, flanked by large stately columns, are a beautiful spot for an intimate vow exchange. The surrounding lawns, magnificent gardens, and trees set a natural ambiance and are great for photos!
The Confluence Resort sits on a 300-acre farm atop the Gauley and Meadow Rivers’ canyon rim. Extraordinary wilderness views, including mountains, a 70-foot waterfall, and dramatic cliffsides surround it. End the evening dining and dancing in their modern industrial event space or a simple rustic barn.
The Venetian Estate is home to a 100-year-old home reimagined as a restaurant, with stables serving as a cozy pub. Host your ceremony on the Cypress or Gazebo Lawns, with views of their stunning gardens. Then, host your guests (up to 220!) in the Venetian Ballroom for your reception.
Oglebay Resort is a beautiful and fun destination for a relaxing and entertaining getaway. Turn your wedding day into a wedding weekend with golfing, a spa, and even a private zoo! Set on 2,000 beautiful acres of wildlife, your wedding will incorporate the beauty of the outdoors, even if you host your event inside!
If you haven’t seen it before, I hope you see how beautiful a West Virginia wedding can be now. Take the time to check out these wedding venues in West Virginia, and set up some tours to see the spaces for yourself in person.
