A Sky Ridge Farm Wedding is one of the best places to get married at in Waynesboro, VA. Imagine this. A gorgeous, all-white barn surrounded by breathtaking mountain views and lush, rolling fields. Sound like a dream come true? This is the reality at Sky Ridge Farm!
Trust me when I say that an outdoor ceremony at Sky Ridge Farm Wedding is a memorable experience. With panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the rolling hills of Virginia, couples can choose which view they want their ceremony to face. What if an outdoor ceremony isn’t possible due to the weather? Sky Ridge has a great rain-day back up option! Their lovely barn was built-in the 1900s. As a result, indoor receptions take advantage of the original rustic charm.
The barn is approximately 5,000 sq. ft. of covered space including the covered balcony. Most clients only choose to use the balcony for their ceremony incases of inclement weather (it is approximately 2500 sq. ft.). This way, couples they can still enjoy the views while keeping themselves and up to the 200 guests the barn holds, protected from the weather. Conveniently, the balcony also faces the mountain view that Sky Ridge Farm is known for. You won’t have to give up any views by having an indoor wedding here!
Another key point about this venue, is that there is plenty of room for a live band at Sky Ridge Farm. Some couples may choose to house the band inside the barn and have the dance floor indoors. Meanwhile, others choose to place the band on the balcony and dance outside in the cool night air. It really is up to you!
Sky Ridge likes to make every vendor that walks through the door feel like home! Because of this, in addition to the upper reception space, a caterer’s kitchen is located on the barn’s lower level. This space includes a commercial-size fridge, freezer, warming oven, and sink.
Downstairs you will find a well-lit, spacious bridal suite with an equally spacious groom’s room for getting ready. Furnished with chic couches (for the ladies) and leather couches (for the men) you’ll be able to feel comfortable while you get ready. As an added bonus, both areas are well lit with windows, making it great for getting ready images. Each space is located on the opposite end of the barn with a private bathroom attached so brides won’t ever have to worry about the groom sneaking a peek before the ceremony or first look!
A Sky Ridge Farm Wedding includes an all-inclusive weekend package that includes three days of rental! Ideally, one for set up and rehearsal dinner, one for the wedding day, and the following day for cleanup. As a result, the bride can soak in the magic of her wedding day, rather than worrying about last-minute details. This is an absolute game changer that not many venues offer. If you are not hiring a planner and rental company, I especially urge you to take up this offer!
Oh, and the best part? All fur babies are welcome to join you for your special day! We all know how important that your pups can come, and at Sky Ridge, they can!
