My husband and I have always loved Bold Rock, we visit often. One day while sitting on the deck enjoying some cider we decided that we should see if they do weddings. Sure enough they did and were more than happy to help us make our dream day come true. We had the pleasure of working with Meg Emerson, the event coordinator at Bold Rock. She was AMAZING and did more than I could ever ask for. From planning, to seating charts, to organization, she did it all. I was very stressed ,as any bride would be, and Meg helped ease several concerns by showing me set-up's of other weddings, by emailing me back in a reasonable amount of time, and by meeting with me in person about 3 times to discuss everything. She worked with the caters on the day of and made sure everything went smoothly. Meg also came and picked my husband and I up with the Gator after we had our wedding pictures taken in the field. She brought 2 ciders and a fruit and cheese plate for us to enjoy on the ride up the hill. My day wouldn't have been what it was without Meg. If you are looking at Bold Rock as a venue, book it, I promise you will love everything about it and you will have all the help you need.Sent on 10/23/2017
Bold Rock was also a great value because we could use their tables and chairs for the reception. We had a buffet style dinner that was served inside and we had the dance floor on the deck outside. The ambiance with the string lighting made it magical. Couldn't have asked for anything more. We will be back time after time in the years to come.

Go Bold Rockin'
This venue was without a doubt the highlight of our wedding. You really can't beat the value in the Charlottesville area. The breathtaking views are like something out of a dream and the venue comes with tables/chairs/restrooms -- perfect for getting that natural feel, without making your guests rough it. It rained on and off on our wedding day, and if anything, it made it more perfect. The mountains were beautiful in the haze and the team at Bold Rock made sure we didn't have to think about adjusting things for the rain. We had a relatively large group for the venue inside (130) and it still felt like plenty of room to do dancing and everything indoors once it started raining. Bold Rock moved tables and everything got rearranged quickly and seamlessly, I don't think our guests even noticed.Sent on 07/25/2019
The team at Bold Rock was awesome -- everybody was smiling and ready to help. Katie went above and beyond throughout the whole process to make sure that everything went smoothly on our big day. They let us use a nearby field for first look pictures and gatored us around the property. The bartenders were great. I really didn't have to worry about anything. My wedding planner was extremely grateful to Katie and the team as well -- she said she didn't need to worry about anything for the reception.
