Since 2017 I’ve had the pleasure and privilege to travel all over Virginia and the East Coast to photograph couples on one the happiest day of their life. Some of my favorite venues are right in my backyard! If you’re on the hunt for a wedding venue with a view near Charlottesville, VA, look no further. Here are the top 10 Charlottesville Wedding Venues to say “I Do”.

1. Keswick Vineyards

Nestled alongside rolling hills not far outside of Charlottesville lies Keswick Vineyards a beautiful wedding venue for a elegant wine country wedding. Your ceremony can be in front of the vines with this beautiful view or you can opt for a ceremony in front of the fountain and Estate. Keswick Vineyards is one of my favorite venues because of the variety within short distance- trees, fountain, vineyard, archways, and more!

2. King Family Vineyard

King Family Vineyards is a short drive from where Ashley Eagleson Photography is based in Charlottesville, Virginia! The reception space can be transformed in many different directions making it easier to have the space match your style. I love when couples choose to add on hanging lights from the ceiling! It gives a huge WOW factor when your guests walk in! The mountain views are a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony. King Family Vineyards is one of the most known venues and vineyards in Charlottesville, Virginia.

4. CrossKeys Vineyard

One of my favorite Virginia wedding venues is CrossKeys Vineyard located an hour away from Charlottesville. Say I Do at this vineyard that has beautiful views of the mountains. You can easily go from location to location by using the golf cart they have on the property! This is a MAJOR bonus. And, no need to worry about rain! The venue has a European styled terrace that can comfortably fit your guests for an outdoor ceremony.

10. Stone Tower Winery

Do forgive me as I know I said this blog post was my top 10 favorite Charlottesville wedding venues and Stone Tower Winery is not located in Charlottesville. Stone Tower Winery is a wedding venue in Virginia with a truly breathtaking view. I wanted to include this wedding venue on my list because it’s a closer to Northern Virginia which is a great place to get married for couples planning their wedding from many states away. Northern Virginia has great travel accommodations with several international airports nearby. If you a majority of your guests are traveling by plane for your wedding, put Stone Tower Winery at the top of your list!
