Weddings should last for days, not hours. Shenandoah Woods specializes in weddings where all of your guests will enjoy the entire weekend together. Located in a private valley in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah Woods is a spectacular setting for your wedding. Our Pavilion is on the edge of our forest with a sweeping view of mountains and farms below. Our Pavilion is a custom 3200 square foot, open air structure with changing rooms, restrooms and a catering kitchen. We provide as much as we can to make your planning as simple as possible; you do NOT need to rent a tent, port-o-potties, speakers, lighting, tables or chairs. Choose to have your ceremony on the lawn in front of the Pavilion, or in the chapel in the woods, just a short walk away. Your wedding party and guests may choose to stay in any of our 17 onsite modern cabins making an amazing weekend for everyone!
We only book one wedding per weekend which means you have exclusive access to our venue Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Our rate is $9500. You can check availability here on Wedding Wire or on our website, linked below.

Amazing. Magical. Beautiful. Gorgeous. Fun. Everything we could have asked for and more. A dream!
Shenandoah Woods is magical. First of all, YES the view is that beautiful. Secondly, with the ease of having the cabins on site, you get to see that view for days before and after if you choose. At of all the reviews about our wedding, this is by far the one that is entirely difficult to write and put into words because this place is that special.
First and foremost, Shenandoah Woods was our first vendor hired and by far the most important for us. I knew the moment I saw the listing on wedding wire, that was the place I as a Bride wanted to get married. Our timeline was based on the availability, and unfortunately getting engaged in October, led us to have to pick a date a year and half away in May the following year (in hindsight lucky for us because COVID :/). Anyway, the wait was absolutely worth it. The weather. We could not have asked for a more perfect mountain day. May led to a cool morning, warm afternoon, and beautiful evening.
The ceremony and Pavilion are gorgeous. The amenities at these places are clean and comfortable. All of our vendors were able to make it there without an issue (including the Fedex man delivering the flowers)
They have on site cabins. Booking was a breeze. The cabins are NOT all walking distance to each other, but that is OKAY because it makes you feel like you are the only one up there when you are in the cabins. I will say the roads are mostly gravel; you do NOT need a 4x4, but some may feel more comfortable in something that is not "low" to the ground, which we told our guests about prior. Some did bring cars which made it up and down the roads just FINE. If even rained/stormed at some point in time during the week we were there and we we all made it just fine. The cabins themselves are amazing. We have traveled to a couple of cabins in our time and these were more than comfortable, accommodating and well stocked. Your guests will be happy and in awe. Many of our guests (including my parents) want to come back and spend time here outside of our wedding! This made going back to work after the wedding tough!
My recommendation to all is to make sure to book extra time; either prior to or after the wedding, you are going to want to relax and enjoy your time there. We went Wed-Wed with wedding on Saturday and was perfect.
As far as the wedding venue, you are fairly on your own--the necessities (and then some) were provided, but after that it's up to you, which is exactly what we were looking for. You can hire all the vendors, or hire a few and do some on your own (which is what we did), or do it all yourself (which is more than doable if you are that kind of person, the view/cabins speak for themselves).
Jason Cave. The man. He is lighting fast with responses. He went ABOVE and beyond what was needed to make it a magical weekend. The shuttle service day of was awesome and much appreciated. We cannot thank him enough for having Shenandoah Woods and for allowing us to get married there. It was magical, and it was better than we could have ever dreamed. Coming from a slightly anxious bride that read a million reviews on everything over and over again, let me just say, this was THE place (and do I have to even mention worth ever penny? cause it is). We will be back again for vacation, and we cannot believe we were given the privilege to get married at this slice of heaven.
Side note: the bridal party/groomsmen got read in the Lost Paddle and Pinnacle Cabins, were were perfect for what we needed. Close together to party together prior to and after, far enough away to not see each other prior. Highly recommend.

Incredible Wedding Venue!
Shenandoah Woods was the perfect venue for our wedding. We had such an amazing weekend that we were able to share with our family and friends. Jason was so easy to work with and incredibly helpful. Everything went off without a hitch. I can't imagine anyone not having the best time celebrating their wedding here. All of our friends and family who stayed in cabins loved them (as did we!). The Pavilion itself is stunning with gorgeous views. The fire pits in the fall were everything. We will definitely visit again!Sent on 11/10/2019

The dream wedding beyond my wildest dreams...
Just this past weekend, my husband and I were married at Shenandoah Woods and it nothing short of an absolutely perfect experience! The venue itself provides the most breathtaking views and the coziest accommodations that made every moment of the event feel like a fairy tale. Every one of our guests is still raving about the experience and, if booking this venue, you can expect that each of your guest's FaceBook profile picture will quickly be changed to one with your wedding as it's backdrop! Beyond simply the beauty of the location, the owner, Jason Cave, was more than wonderful to work with. A wedding is no small feat to plan with it's many, many considerations that need to be made, but Jason made it so much easier by always being available to answer any questions/concerns quickly and succinctly, even providing new and creative solutions to needs that may not have been part of the offerings they usually include. Being a family owned business with many years of experience, he is basically an expert on the topic. Not only was he available to my husband and I, he was just as willing to accommodate and assist our guests staying on the resort with any of their needs. With his help, we have ALL made memories that will last a lifetime and we are already making plans to return to stay in the cabins! You will not regret having your wedding at Shenandoah Woods.Sent on 09/19/2019

From a DJ's point of view I always get nervous with outdoor venues and any venue that has there own audio house system. I reached out to Jason and he immediately responded which is awesome! (Venues are usually very poor at responding) He answered all my questions. Day of he has awesome to work with and the audio system rocked! (I was impressed!) For being an outdoor venue the place was crazy clean and the restrooms were as well. He also has a built in lights for dance time. Not the inexpensive cheap lights either. I could tell that Jason put some thought into this. Jason was also available the whole evening and during the event put up covers up to keep the warmth in as it was a rather chilly rainy day. I loved the look and feel of the venue. Any Bride & Groom or company looking to throw a party should check this venue out and at least make a trip to visit this venue and see for yourself! Great venue! Great service! Jason is the man! PS: You have to take a picture in front of the truck!
Shenandoah Woods is one of my favorite venues. Why? Obviously they have a lovely pavilion & amazing views. But, also because Jason goes above and beyond to ensure a wonderful event every time.
