What part of VA? It’s 4-5 hours to just drive across the state ๐Ÿ™‚ Are you looking up in the Northern VA/DC area? Richmond? South down by VA Beach?

Virginia’s a pretty big state (not CA size, but big enough) so what area does his family live in? You’ll need to narrow it down a little bit for us. I’m from Charlottesville, which is a beautiful place to have a wedding. There are lots of vineyards and farms in the surrounding county. Check out this website for ideas: http://www.borrowedandblue.com/charlottesville/wedding-venues

Barboursville Vineyards is beautiful but am not sure they do small weddings. Belle Haven is a historic country house that hosts small parties. Poke around that site if it’s in the right area for you since there are a lot of options that fit your desire.

I used to live in VA. If you live near Fredericksburg I would recommend The Olde Silk Mill (http://www.innattheoldesilkmill.com/weddings/). It is a Mill converted to a venue space.

I’ve been to two weddings there and it was really nice during the first one, though they were doing some construction during the second. That was about a year ago, though, so they’ve probably finished.

I am having a small wedding in NoVa, I would be happy to provide some suggestions if you’re planning to have your wedding in this part of the state!

I’m in Coastal Virginia. Where are you? Williamsburg Winery is nice. DH and I have been on several tours there.

I’m in NC, and I’ve also lived in WV and MD — so even though I’ve never lived in VA, I’ve lived in all of its neighboring states so I think I know it pretty well.  ๐Ÿ™‚

I agree with the above posters that you need to narrow down which part of the state.  But none of the PP mentioned western VA, so I will add that Chateau Morrisette, (http://www.thedogs.com/) a vineyand in the Mountains, very near the Blue Ridge Parkway, is absolutely beautiful.  It would make for an amazing wedding.

In the Charlottesville area, I’d look at Pollak or Veritas vineyards. 

ETA: King Family would also be a good choice.
