One of a kind
While searching for a wedding venue, our main criteria was beautiful views. As soon as we pulled up the driveway and saw the views of the Blue Ridge mountains and the winery, we knew we wanted to get married here. Then we saw the Barrel Room and thought it was even more gorgeous and so unique. We had both our rehearsal dinner and ceremony in there. Blue Valley has the most amazing scenery and atmosphere, and of course, the wine is great too. We loved having our wedding here and Terry Kaye Events ensured everything went smoothly throughout the entire process. She was a huge help and made my stress disappear :-) The bridal suite is also an added bonus! Gorgeous decor and stocked with a bottle of champagne. Thank you Blue Valley and Terry Kaye Events!

Blue Valley was a Dream Come True
When I first toured Blue Valley, I knew it was the place I wanted to marry my soulmate. It was the most breathtaking of all of the wedding venues we toured. The pictures online do not do it justice, you have got to see the property in person to really appreciate it’s beauty. With a 360 view of rolling mountains, the scenery can not be topped. Blue Valley Vineyard was the prefect compromise for me and my now husband. I wanted something modern and he wanted something rustic and outdoors. We also got the added bonus of delicious wine, friendly staff, and a very talented wedding planner, Terry Kaye.
Our wedding day was MAGICAL and our guests are still raving about how gorgeous, well-planned, and fun everything was. The whole weekend was perfection and I truly believe that was because of our venue. We have been a part of a lot of weddings and Blue Valley is the most accommodating venue I have had the pleasure to work with. Everyone there jumped through hoops to create a stunning event and we made so many amazing new friends in the process. Blue Valley’s list of preferred vendors is the best of the best. We were able to establish a dream team based on their relationships to make our dream wedding come true.
In our venue search, we toured with their owner, Stergio, who we love! He is so kind, talented and so proud of his work - which he should be. The entire Zissios family is so sweet! On our tour, when we walked down to the barrel room, I was sold. It is incredibly gorgeous to host an event. We had our magical rehearsal dinner in the barrel room for 75 people, all who were awe walking into the space. It is also a beautiful space for a smaller indoor reception.
Attached to the the barrel room, is the gorgeous cave. It had an amazing backdrop for the guys to take photos while the girls finished getting ready in the charming bridal suite. I could write a novel on how awesome the bridal suite was for 15 ladies to get ready and it never felt cramped. They have a plethora of champagne glasses, a perfect place to hang dresses, and a private bathroom. The suite has the perfect light for photos and we shared so many special moments in the space.
I cannot say ENOUGH amazing things about what Terry and her team did for us on our wedding day. We had a very personalized and detailed wedding and with that, came a lot of decor. Blue Valley closes two hours before the ceremony start time, which I was nervous about, but Terry made things as STRESS FREE for me as possible. We dropped everything off on Friday morning and I honestly have no idea how they set everything up so perfectly. I gave them lists on how I wanted things displayed and everything turned out more gorgeous than I imagined. At the end of the night, the staff packs everything up for you to take home the next day. We are still in debt to all of their work on our wedding weekend. I highly recommend purchasing Terry Kaye Events full wedding planning package, she made my life so much easier and became a great friend to my husband and me.
The only tricky thing about this venue for us, ended up being our guest count. We were planning on 250 guests and then later told to keep things to 225. Things were still tight and our guests in the loft had issues hearing and viewing speeches and dances. Just keep that in mind if you end up being on the larger end of their capacity!
Thank you Blue Valley Vineyard & Winery for exceeding our expectations in every way. We can’t wait to come and visit with you for a wine tasting to reminisce soon!
