What Washington DC area Brides Look for in a Wedding Venue

When couples from the DC metro area are seeking out the best outdoor region wedding venues, they want a couple of things, world-class services, breathtaking views of the region and luxury everything. Many wedding venues offer one or two of these factors but only a few reach everything into one, fortunately, Silver Hearth Lodge offers just that.

A few hours drive south, you’ll find our popular wedding venue on top of Bent Mountain, a 2,600ft mountain located in the middle of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our 40-acre campus is truly unlike any other, filled with multiple places to get married, luxury details galore and ways to have a custom wedding like no other, we offer the best-in-class amenities that couples from NOVA simply love.

Today, I want to hit just a few highlights to share with you what makes our venue truly unique and special for your wedding day.

The Views

The first thing that draws couples to our campus is the breathtaking views we offer. From the mountain-top, you can see parts of the Roanoke Valley and the surrounding Blue Ridge mountains. When brides come down to the visit in person, they are blown away at the beauty of the region and what we have on top of the property.

The best thing about what we offer is that at just about all parts of the venue, you can see the mountains in the background and it’s completely awe-inspiring.

The Amenities

We also have many facilities on the campus property and were able to hold up to 300 wedding guests too. We have a large 4,500 square ft barn style building called Vista View Hall. And it’s not just a big red barn either. Inside you’ll find many world-class amenities with a luxury country-rustic theme.

From the TV lounge to our outdoor sitting porch, our cantina bar, Starbucks Coffee bar, dance floor with built-in lighting, our arched entranceway to our luxury filled bridal suite, it has much to offer.

Speaking of the bridal suite, it’s unlike any other that you’ve seen. One of the things I love about the venue here is that that it’s designed with the couple in mind. Just about everywhere you venture, you’ll find custom Ralph Lauren furniture throughout, crystal chandeliers and amenities galore.

Everyone has a bridal suite, but no venue comes close to the detail that this venue has to offer. When you first step into the bridal suite, you’ll notice the high-end Ralph Lauren Furniture where bridesmaids can relax and feast on cheese, grapes, and wine while they prep themselves for the wedding. The bride has her own table complete with a Victorian style mirror complete with lighting all around. There are so many power outlets I can’t even count them all. Closet space for keeping your bags and personal effects and of course a Victorian style sled bed if the couple chooses to stay the eve on the campus.

But that’s not all. Right next to the bridal suite is a dedicated hair salon, yes, a hair salon. Hair and make-up artists simply bring their tools and make-up and they’re set. Complete with a hair sink, shower, restroom facilities’ and even a secret room where the bride can see everything while keeping hidden from guests and her groom.

That’s just one of many examples here on the property.

One of the great things about Silver Hearth Lodge is that couples love the level of detail on the property.

The Little Things

Brides that live in the DC metro area also choose SHL over other venues for the little details. With 40 acres to use, the campus offers many different places to get married on the property.

From the smallest chapel in Virginia to the outdoor, domed wrought-iron gazebo build in Europe to our Overlook Pavilion and even a Native American Fire-Circle, the venue doesn’t stop there. Throughout the property you can find we pay attention to the little things, all the fans in Vista View Hall, heaters and fireplaces, lights for the dancing floor, tissue box stations, cell phone charging station, our cantina bar, powder rooms for guests, playground for kids, playground for four-legged friends, our coffee-bar, the list literally goes onward.

See, unlike many other venues SHL is a dedicated wedding venue and we mean that. Our campus is always growing, and we aim to make your wedding experience world class too by providing everything you need to make your wedding day an amazing one!

Every wedding venue offers a place or two on their property to get married, but they limit what you can do, essentially, you’re in a ‘big box’ if you will. The Big Box allows you to do certain things, but if you want something special or custom you are most likely out of luck.

Here, if you want to arrive in a helicopter you can.

If you want to have your wedding on the edge of the pavilion, you can.

You want 300 guests, sure, we can accommodate that, and we can even help provide transportation from hotels in the Roanoke Valley straight up the mountain too.

You want the campus lit-up at night for people to enjoy the views of the Blue Ridge to enjoy the property in the evening, yup, we do that too.

The Campus

Our wedding campus has been referred to at a true Disneyland of wedding venues over the years by top wedding vendors and there are so many places to get married on the property.

Just a few examples, there is Vista View Hall, the largest building on the property, then our domed wrought-iron gazebo is an outdoor wedding post that’s shaded, we have Virginia’s Smallest church on the property, a Native American Fire Circle with a huge fire-pit, our Overlook Pavilion which is popular among couples that want the view as the backdrop. We have much more too but those are just a couple of popular parts of the campus.

What couples and guests alike love about us is that we also pay attention to small details too. From the TV’s running that can show sports games for the men to the tissue boxes all throughout for the ladies, the lawn games and our playground for children to our dog park for the four-legged friends you want to bring, Silver Hearth Lodge is a true wonder to have for your wedding day.

I highly suggest that you take a day to come to visit the property for yourselves and see why couples seek our popular venue all over the United States.
