As a professional wedding and event DJ I get the opportunity to provide services at numerous venues throughout Virginia and connecting states. I had a great time and awesome overall experience working with Melrose Caverns and their staff. Their in house coordinator was great to work with as well as accommodating. I can't stress how important "teamwork" is on your big day. The venue is so photogenic inside and out, you will get incredible photos for sure. The wrap around porch is an awesome setting. The load in ramp is not only great for vendors but also makes the venue handicap accessible. Parking was a breeze. As a wedding professional I look at the functionality of a venue from my time of arrival to the time I leave. Check them out if you are on the market for a venue in or near Harrisonburg VA!!Sent on 05/12/2019

We came all the way from Baltimore to have our wedding at Melrose Caverns and it was well work the drive! it was stunning in the spring time and has all of the amenities a wedding needs! it really was a perfect weekend! I am a fairly easy going person and didn't want to do a lot of pintrest projects for the wedding and with this place I really didn't need to! All you need are some centerpieces and a friend with good handwriting and you are good to go! I went with the whole package and I felt it was definitely worth it. We stayed at the renovated farm house and it was also a fantastic place for us out of towners. Our friends brought their baby and we were able to have fun in the finished basement without any disturbance to our other guests who were sleeping. Could not recommend this place more. Melodie took things over the day of the wedding and I felt completely at ease with her running the show.Sent on 06/13/2017
