The 8 Chains North Winery, a vineyard with a barn in the greater Washington, D.C. area, is a venue that can host a wedding that fits a couple's unique style.

Facilities and Capacity
Up to 110 guests can join couples at this venue for their wedding celebration. Ceremonies take place on the lawn in front of the vineyard. Facing the west, this location offers gorgeous opportunities for evening ceremonies with photographs as the sun casts an orange glow over the sky. On the day of the wedding, couples can use the rows of vines, the barrel room, and the rest of the rolling property for portraits of the couple and wedding party. The Compass Rose Banquet Room is the ideal reception space for couples at this venue. It includes high ceilings and dazzling chandeliers with elegantly decorative beads dangling from the bronze fixtures. A matching bronze-colored cork accent wall is the perfect complement to the rows of barrels in the production room behind glass, giving the space an authentic winery feeling. The French doors in this room lead to a covered patio that may be used as overflow space or a cocktail reception venue. As the night wears on couples may use the Tasting Room, only available after hours. This large area feels cozy thanks to a stone fireplace that serves as the perfect indoor ceremony spot in the event of inclement weather.
Couples are welcome to use this venue for any wedding-related event. It is not just open to ceremonies and receptions, but also invites couples for bridal showers, elopements, engagement parties, and rehearsal dinners.

I am so happy I had my wedding at 8 chains north. I've been almost all of the wineries in northern Virginia (what can I say...I love wine) and this place was my first thought when selecting a venue. The outside is beautiful as you would expect with any vineyard. However the inside is beautiful. It is so pretty you don't need to spend much on decor. At the same time it's a beautiful palate to make fit any theme. It can be rustic or romantic or elegant. Unlike other venues I didn't feel trapped by wall colors or the places personal decor. It is also a perfect size for a 50-80 person wedding. It is intimate without feeling stuffy. Also the staff are great. They are helpful and accommodating. I am so glad I had my wedding here. It was a perfect day.

Perfect winery wedding venue
8 Chains was a phenomenal venue for our October wedding. We had such a great experience from the day that we first visited through our wedding day. Elly (Events Manager) was extremely attentive and responsive throughout the planning process. Our guests had great things to say about Elly and the rest of the 8 Chains staff members that worked our reception. The Furnace Mountain package was a great value. We loved our on-site bride/groom suites (with bubbly service!). The back lawn was a beautiful backdrop for an outdoor ceremony, and we had access to the tasting room and patio for an indoor/outdoor cocktail hour. The reception space was our favorite part of this venue. It was very elegant with the perfect amount of space for our guests. We highly recommend 8 Chains North Winery as a wedding venue!

Elly and her team at 8 Chains made our special day into a memorable event. They were able to recommend vendors to make our day seamless as well as worked with our schedules to coordinate days for the various vendors to come out and view the venue. They were accommodating in allowing us to take photos in the barrel room, throughout the vineyard as well as the barn across the street. This was the perfect setting for an intimate ceremony.Sent on 11/19/2018
