If you’re looking for a venue that feels remote but is still super accessible for you and your guests, then we’ve found the perfect place for you! Less than a 1 hour drive from Washington, DC, (close to Leesburg) lies Sylvanside Farm in Purcellville, VA. It's a unique farm venue where you and your bridal party can actually stay on-site! And you know what we always say, why have a wedding day when you could have an entire wedding weekend?

We also love that the venue breaks their weddings down by season, so you can see how the farm looks during the season you want to get married.

Purcellville, VA is located in Virginia’s wine country and is just a 30-minute drive from Dulles International Airport. With a blooming orchard, spring-fed pond overlook, and two historic barns this private venue is a destination in its own right and has so many scenic ceremony options. Plus, if you do want to make a weekend of it, you and your guests can explore local vineyards, go boutique hopping in the historic downtown, and even pop into a craft distillery. It’s also worth mentioning that you’re just a short distance from our nation’s capital, so why not plan a fun day trip to Washington, DC?


Sylvanside Farm boasts several unforgettable on-site accommodations where couples and their guests can stay. The Cottage can sleep up to eight members of the wedding party and the newly restored historic Smokehouse has been lovingly repurposed to create a suite for the parents of the couple. And of course, there’s the Hunt Box sweetheart suite for the newlyweds.

When you plan your wedding at Sylvnaside, they go the extra mile to make everything a little easier. From allowing couples and their wedding parties to stay on site to supplying ceremony and reception chairs, tables, and decor.

Now, close your eyes and imagine waking up to birdsong and the crisp country air. You get ready in your wedding suite with your besties as you enjoy some local sparkling wine. Then, make your way down the gravel path through the fragrant orchard to the love of your life who’s waiting for you at the end of the aisle. And don’t worry, while the outdoor venues at Sylvanside Farm are definitely something to behold, they also have multiple indoor locations that can seat up to 225 people just in case the weather takes a turn. The best part? There’s no additional fee for the backup plan! After a breezy alfresco cocktail hour filled with drinks crafted from local spirits, you and your guests retire to the barn for a night filled with good food, good company, and of course some serious dancing! And when the band plays the final song, you and your new hubby or wife simply stroll back to your honeymoon suite.
