    We loved our mt. Defiance wedding!

    Our wedding at Mt. Defiance was an absolute DREAM!!!! Even with a rainy day and indoor ceremony, every detail was perfect, magical, and more than we could have ever dreamed of. Honestly, our indoor ceremony felt so intimate and just want we wanted all along. We are forever grateful to be a part of the Mt. Defiance family!!!!

    Exactly what we were looking for

    We held our wedding at Mount Defiance's cidery and we could not have been happier about our choice of venue. The low-key, rustic but modern vibe was exactly what we wanted for our wedding and it is a nice contrast with the myriad old plantation homes in the area. The location just outside the charming town of Middleburg is also perfect.

    It was the perfect size for our wedding (roughly 100 guests) and the flow from the ceremony to the cocktails to the reception went perfectly, even when the weather didn't cooperate. The main room has plenty of space for folks to go all out on the dance floor while the two covered porches gave plenty of space for those who needed to escape the commotion.

    I also want to highlight what a delight it was to work with the staff at Mount Defiance. Kelsey and her team worked with us beforehand to make sure everything went smoothly, including accommodating some last minute requests from guests who were new mothers. And on the day of, one of the managers lent me his laptop charger when I couldn't find my own.

    We've since fallen in love with Mount Defiance and their cider. We've gone back multiple times with family to try new offerings. We cannot recommend them enough to host your wedding or any other event.

    A beautiful venue with no added decorations needed!

    The perfect venue for upscale barn vibes with a string light chandelier, outdoor ceremony space, and a porch with rocking chairs for resting your feet after dancing. There鈥檚 also a bridal suite and groom鈥檚 room upstairs great for taking a moment alone. The coordinators Nicole and Kelsey are also lovely people and had no issue dealing with multiple postponements. I highly recommend this beautiful venue!
