    Hubble Wedding 11/17/2018

    Heartstone is absolutely breathtaking!
    This venue is ideal for intimate wedding ceremonies. The staff and owners were extremely helpful and flexible in making our dream wedding come true. We held our ceremony upstairs in the renovated farmhouse, went downstairs for the reception, and drove a mile up the road to the Honeymoon Cabin to complete the experience. All of our expectations were exceeded and the local businesses were equipped to handle all of the catering, flowers, photography, and entertainment for our special day. We recommend this place to anyone wishing to have a country-style wedding with elegance and class to match.

    No Fuss, DIY Authentic

    Heartstone was absolutely excellent value for all that you receive. We did everything here - lodging, pre-wedding photoshoot, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, and Sunday brunch. The venue and surrounding area are rustic and charming, the perfect size for an intimate wedding of 100 guests or fewer, though it could accomidate more. We reserved all the on-site accommodation for our family and friends, which added greatly to their experience. We stayed in the Creamery studio, which was lovely, and extremely convenient. We hosted our rehearsal dinner outside at the round picnic tables, and fire-pit which I loved. Our ceremony was to be in front of the Meditation arbor, but due to rain (beyond the control of a defeated Bridezilla!!), we moved inside the lodge, and held the reception under a tent in the yard, then returned to the lodge for our live bluegrass band and dancing. It worked perfectly. A huge advantage - the venue layout can facilitate many configurations, depending on preferences, weather conditions, etc. In good weather, the pergola and stone garden with the fish pond, and views of the Blue Ridge would make for an absolutely gorgeous reception. This is a great place for a DIY wedding- it is completely unpretentious and authentic and the hosts are extremely responsive and helpful. If you are open to feeling it, this place is imbued with an energy of love and positivity, I believe due in part to the conscious and intentional energy work practiced by the owners. I am now trying to convince all my remaining unmarried friends and family to host their weddings here, because this is a place I would love to return to again and again!
