An Irvine Estate Wedding, is a spectacular place for you to host your destination mountain wedding! This venue is just minutes from Lexington, and is the second of two venues. Its sister venue, the House Mountain Inn sides on the Eastern side of the property. Don’t worry though, the venues are tucked away, out of site for each other for maximum privacy!
Irvine Estate is owned by Charles and Colleen Irvine. This is where the venue received its name! Since they are the owners of not one, but two venues, they really know and give their couples the best in terms of setting, quality, and service.
This first class venue and event space offers such a refreshing change of environment than what most of us are used too. The venue has panoramic views of the Allegheny Mountains, and most impressively it sits at 2,300 feet in elevation! This space is 6,000 sq. ft. and is ideal for your wedding (obviously), rehearsal dinners or any special gathering! It can host about 230 + guests comfortably, so invite all of your friends and family!
Similarly to its sister venue, this venue have much more to offer than just its incredible views. There are five rooms available for both lodging and wedding preparation at the Irvine Estate.
Firstly, the biggest room, the Chimney Rock Mountain room has a more than spacious bathroom- it’s huge! It also has a fireplace, king size bed, and mountain views. This room is $296 per night.
Secondly is the Thunder Mountain Room. This suite has a standard, private bathroom, and mountain views.
Thirdly is the Jump Mountain Room. This suite is really special because it is based on the Harry Potter books! It is decked with a queen size bed, and of course, a private bathroom. Fourthly is the Forge Mountain Room. Again, this room has a private bathroom, stunning views and a queen size bed. Lastly is the Black Oak Mountain Room. This is a corner suite and it offers a queen size bed, views and a private bathroom. All of these rooms are $226 per night.
In addition to all of the amazing features I have noted thus-far, there is still more! Here at an Irvine Estate wedding there are options for both indoor and outdoor ceremony locations. Imagine this: your ceremony with the most incredible views, and gardens while your friends and family are all gathering with you. The team at Irvine Estate will make sure those dreams become a reality!
The Irvine Estate Ballroom is the perfect place to host your reception. With plenty of room for tables and chairs, high ceilings and resort-style wooden beams will truly make you feel anything but traditional.
Similarly to its sister venue, this space also offers a stunning Pavilion with the most incredible views! Down below you can take photos along the estate, or make the walk down to the pond and gardens. Did I mention the estate has a huge patio in front of the house? This is the perfect spot for bridal photos or a cocktail hour. The options really are about endless!
I hope you loved reading about this stunning venue! I highly suggest that you contact this venue to schedule a tour, and take an in-person peak at where your wedding might be held!
No matter which venue you choose, you will love your mountain, destination wedding at this property! After you schedule a tour, reach out to me and let’s get your date on my books! I look forward to hearing from you!
