    Once you see this venue, you cannot NOT book it

    Picking EMV as our wedding venue was a no brainer. We came to EMV early on in our relationship and then Chris proposed here...so of course it had a special place in our hearts already! The venue is gorgeous to begin with...but then layer in the decor, florals, staff, service, wine, and THE FIREPLACES, and I can’t even begin to explain how this already amazing space truly transforms. The entire staff make it super easy to plan, coordinate, add, remove, really anything you need for your big day to be a success—starting with the preferred vendor packet they give you when you book them. This was the first place I started looking for vendors, having not used a wedding planner, and it was so helpful leading the way—especially since I live in DC and did not know any vendors in the Charlottesville area. You get a lot for your $$ here, with the venue providing a lot of the chairs, tables, decor, and general ambiance. Caterer has to be through their preferred list (but you have a good range of options and price points) and they do require a day of coordinator (we did this through the caterer and wasn’t an issue) and the wine has to be from EMV (duh!). Sara and team EMV—thank you for making our day so special and memorable—we cannot give you enough praise!!! Oh, and you 100% have to book the honeymoon cottage for as long as you can—pictures do not do it justice for how quaint, romantic, beautiful, PERFECT that little space is.

    Absolutely phenomenal. A dream!

    Early Mountain Vineyards (EMV) was the first venue I looked at and I knew from that moment it was perfect! We had a small (75 person) wedding, but it had so much space that it did not feel empty, but could easily accommodate more. The food- AMAZING. The wine- AMAZING. The service from EMV- AMAZING. Their new chef is phenomenal and many of our friends and family complimented us on the service, wine, delicious food, and all around great experience. Our coordinator through the EMV, Sara, was a GODSEND (someone give that woman a Christmas bonus!). She was always responsive, always helpful, always kind- she made me feel like I was a friend she was helping, not a client. The modern amenities like the elevator made my grandparents happy and the ease of the entire weekend from staying on the property, to our rehearsal, to the wedding, made me a happy bride. There was never a moment I worried or had to stress. Even without a wedding planner, Sara and the EMV team made my wedding a dream. I can't recommend them more!

    Local Nanny Network absolutely loves entertaining children at Early Mountain Vineyards! It is such a gorgeous venue inside and out and has stunning mountain views! We love supervising children attending the wedding in the Grooms Lounge. It's quite cozy with a big leather couch and a few oversized chairs. The round table in the lounge makes for a wonderful craft table and an area for games. It's also close to the reception area for parents to pop in to check in on their children. We love Early Mountain and their wonderful staff! We highly recommend Early Mountain to any brides looking for a gorgeous venue. This venue is also makes for a wonderful winter wedding spot!
