Most Under-Rated Wedding Venue on the East Coast
My wife and I got married at this beautiful vineyard and it was everything we could've imagined and more. We took a little bit of a risk when we decided to use the venue because the venue was being built as we were planning the wedding and we were one of the first weddings to be hosted on the vineyard. However, the wedding surpassed all of our expectations and in hindsight, using 12 Ridges was the best risk we ever took.Sent on 03/27/2020
The panoramic mountain range views were stunning; the guests were in awe of the beauty of the scenery, and all of the catering, tent rentals, and other formalities all went according to plan. The summer weather up on the mountain made for a refreshing and comfortable evening in what would normally be sweltering heat of August down in the valley. The property management was easy to work with, very good with logistics, and kept an open line of communication in the months before the wedding to answer any questions or concerns that we had. I feel like we were the most fortunate bride and groom to have our wedding be held in such a majestic and timeless location.
12 Ridges Vineyard's reply:Thank you, Nathan! You and Rachel were an absolute joy to work with. We can't wait to see you again soon!

12 Ridges: Set Apart
We feel extremely fortunate to have gotten married at 12 Ridges Vineyard. The first time my now-husband and I visited the site was in its early days, still Skylark, and I will always remember watching the sunset and sensing deep peace. When we got engaged and began thinking about wedding locations, and potentially a destination wedding, we thought of 12 Ridges, and are truly so grateful our vision was able to come to fruition.Sent on 01/17/2020
Our planning experience with Craig and Sam was wonderful, even with us traveling in and out of Virginia every few months and needing to schedule very particular site visits (in the midst of their construction schedule!). Then day-of, Sam and Athena were a huge help in handling shuttles and all property logistics which created more and more space for us to simply enjoy our wedding day. The setting speaks for itself, but as far as facilities go (bride and groom dressing areas, restrooms, etc), we felt we had exactly what we needed.
Getting to visit 12 Ridges now all the more special, and we strongly encourage other couples considering venues in the area to go visit for yourselves, take a glass of wine up to the hilltop, and just imagine.
12 Ridges Vineyard's reply:Thank you so much, Katy! Hosting your wedding was a treat. Keep in touch and best wishes to your first year of marriage!
