Look No Further To Make Your Wedding Day Magical

The day was meant to be magical and wonderful and all the things dreams are made of, and IT WAS!! The professionalism and "can do" attitude of the McDowall Acres staff was top notch. They were extremely supportive and said on more than on occasion when we were trying to make decisions about the decor, "let's do our best to create the bride's vision", and they set out to do just that. They were hard working, and were problem solvers! When the caterer forgot to send serving spoons with the buffet meal, Elizabeth disappeared for a few minutes and then voila! magically appeared with a half dozen serving spoons. There were several little bumps in the road that were barely noticeable because of their good help. Even down to not having enough greenery to add the the backs of the chairs - Lucy hopped on the golf cart and went foraging around the farm and brought back the perfect greenery solution. You just can't go wrong when you have a team like that making your special day happen!

Incredible Experience

Look no further - you have found your perfect venue. From start to finish, working with McDowall Acres was the highlight of our wedding. To start, the views are breathtaking. Saying our vows with the view of the mountains behind us was like something out of a story book. You overlook a picturesque horse pasture, then a beautiful pond, and end with the blue ridge mountains right behind you. I could not ask for more. Then you have the venue itself. The transformed barn was perfect for our reception - classy yet country. It gave plenty of room for all of our guests to be comfortable, yet fit in perfectly with the beautiful surroundings. The venue is set back on the farm, away from any road noise or outside distractions, so it truly felt like we were in a world of our own that day. Dancing the night away, surrounded by our friends, with the moon shining on the mountains - a moment I will never forget.

The best part though of the whole experience was working with the owners, Elizabeth and Lucy. These sisters helped us every step of the way and made us feel like family. They helped me envision my perfect wedding day vision and were quick to offer the decorations they had on hand. They recommended great vendors (loved that they had a list of ones they recommended, but we were free to use whoever we wanted). Plus the day-of-facility (the cutest little barn house by yet another pond) made getting ready such a fun experience.

Overall, I cannot say enough good things about this venue. Have recommended it to many friends already!
