My wedding at Bluemont Vineyard was perfect! Our wedding was at 4pm in early-mid November. The view was beautiful, and all of guests, including many who had travelled in (TX, MD, CA, FL, and more), raved about the beauty and uniqueness of the Stable. The day was chilly but we were perfectly comfortable in the climate controlled building.
A few items to note:
-Bluemont requires you use their caterer; I heard lots of compliments about the food though!
-You must purchase their wine but you can bring in whatever beer or liquor you want. The price of the venue, linens, food was about the same as other venues in the area, and being able to buy our own alcohol (aside from wine) was very helpful to the budget!
-There is a bridal room that is comfortable for the bride to get dressed in, but it is upstairs and there is no bathroom upstairs.
-You must purchase insurance and an ABC license, but those were 2 of the easiest things to do in the wedding.
-There are at least 3 hotels in leesburg that will provide shuttle service to Bluemont if you have sufficient # of rooms booked in
My day of coordinator (provided by the venue) was so easy to work with and gave me confidence that the day would go off without a hitch. (I also had a private coordinator who worked with Bluemont.) everything made it back to the hotel that night without me having to worry about it, because the day of coordinator makes sure all your personal items and gifts are loaded into a designated guest's car.
My husband was hesitant that the dance floor was too far away from some of the tables and in an awkward spot, but it worked out just fine.
I also ended up using a decorator recommended by the venue, and I think that was one of the best decisions we made! There were so many unique touches to the wedding that complimented the rustic environment.
All in all. I couldn't have asked for a better venue!

Bluemont was exactly what we wanted. We were so satisfied with our first visit to look at the venue and our satisfaction only grew as we were planning our wedding. Jenny was our day of coordinator and she helped make the whole event run smoothly. We would not have changed anything about our wedding and we have Bluemont to thank. It is beautiful and everyone that works there is so personable. Highly recommended!

We loved hosting our wedding at Bluemont Vineyard for 3 reasons: the view, the temperature controlled Stable, and the food! It's a gorgeous place to host a wedding, we married on the 4th of July and our guests watched fireworks from the main lawn. We had great weather on the day of our wedding, but loved having our reception indoors with AC- and could also be a back-up location in case of rain for the ceremony. The bridal suite on the second floor with the balcony was also a plus it was the only vineyard we looked at that had a big private space for the bridal suite. You can't choose your own caterer which is why I didn't give a 5 for flexibility, but I can assure you won't want to, the food by Savoire Fare is amazing. The team at Bluemont is professional, friendly, and incredibly responsive. Some brides might find it confusing to have several people working on your account, but I appreciated knowing that there was a team who was familiar with our wedding so that when a staff change did happen I never had any doubts that our wedding planning was in jeopardy. Our day of coordinator was Amy Thunell and she is fantastic. She had everything organized and under control so that on the day of our wedding I didn't think about anything except enjoying our day. As a super organized person I appreciated the timeline so I knew when I needed to schedule appointments or send payments. A list of preferred vendors is provided; we ultimately chose a baker, officiant, and photographer from that list. You must purchase their wines for your wedding, but you can bring in beer and liquor. The paper lanterns and twinkle lights let the charm of the venue shine through. The rental fee is on par with other venues in the DC area. You do have to pay extra for chairs, linens, etc...but we appreciated the ease of working w/our planner to choose those items instead of bringing all of that in ourselves. We are thrilled that Bluemont was the site of our wedding and plan on visiting often!
