    A memorable venue!

    I recently photographed an autumn wedding at Melrose Caverns and it was such a beautiful venue! I adored the surrounding views, the stonework of the buildings, and of course the caverns inside. The reception space was well built and spacious enough for everything, and my favorite space was the courtyard where we did the first look. I especially loved that there was a separate house for the bridal party to stay in and get ready in. I look forward to returning to the venue one day!

    Awesome Experience

    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!!
