Mini Wedding Ceremony and Weekend Getaway
THIS PLACE IS UNBELIEVABLE!!!! everything from the location, the Estate/the Barn and the staff is exceptional! The event planner (Katherine) is the most helpful, trustworthy and bubbly person to work with . We had to make changes to the "location" of the ceremony last minute due to the rain and Katherine buckled up her staff and was ready to get to work. As the bride, my jaw dropped after I saw what they had done to the barn! it was magical! Even though we provided a lot of the decorations, Katherine and her staff added so many " little surprises" for the ceremony and the after party --- i literally cannot say enough about the Estate and the staff. Everyone I've talked to who stayed with us at the Estate and attended our ceremony will tell you that it was " PERFECT in every way" ! Thank you Katherine and Shawnee!!! You have met and exceeded any expectations I had for a small, mid-COVID, wedding ceremony!Sent on 08/05/2020

Absolutely Incredible! Luray Caverns and Burner Barn Wedding
My husband and I had our wedding ceremony in Luray Caverns and our reception in the outside porch at the Burner Barn. Our wedding was absolutely incredible and our guests continuously say what a great experience it was. The caverns are such a unique venue that resulted in incredible photos and the Burner Barn had such an inviting and fun atmosphere. Katherine Spain (the event manager) was so amazing. Her and the other staff, spoke with us frequently leading up to our wedding and made sure everything was perfect, from planning, to set up, to managing the wedding day events and all the way through to clean up. It was definitely worth walking down through the caverns in my wedding dress for such an incredible ceremony.
It was also great that our Luray Cavern package included beautiful flowers from Vivians Flower Shop. https://www.facebook.com/pages/category/Florist/Vivians-Flower-Shop
I would definitely recommend Luray Caverns and the Burner Barn to anyone who wants to have a truly unique and beautiful wedding day.Sent on 03/11/2020

I’ve used the Burner Barn at Luray Caverns for my sisters bridal shower, as well as my mom’s surprise birthday party. Both times, the events team has always been extremely easy to work with, professional, and helpful. As far as the venue, it’s always been clean and perfect for any type of get together. Whether you are using the outside patio space and admiring the gorgeous flowers and the view or the upstairs of the barn, it’s such a nice place for a get together.Sent on 02/13/2020
