Facilities and Capacity

Something Blue Mountain Venue opened in May 2020. Specializing in Intimate Weddings and Elopements. Capacity: Up to 20 Guests. The venue was a dream come true and a decades-old promise kept between two newlyweds who honeymooned in the Blue Ridge Mountains 27 years ago. The owners are passionate about sharing their property to make wedding dreams come true and to celebrate everlasting love with other couples. Boasting over 50 private acres of land and spectacular mountains as the perfect backdrop to your wedding photographs, this venue is located just 7 miles off Interstate 40. The secret to this spectacular and seemingly difficult trek is that it is very easily accessible via the concrete walkways that lead the way from the car park. Couples will look like they hiked miles for the spectacular and expansive views, however, no hiking boots, sweating, or water bottles are required. Whether you are planning an intimate elopement of up to 20 people or you intend to celebrate with a large party, the property offers plenty of indoor and outdoor space. With over 50 wide-open private acres, the outdoor spaces offer a large shade Pergola and a large covered porch. These areas are decked out with outdoor furnishings like swings, rocking chairs, outdoor games, tables, chairs, silk florals, wedding decor and signs, binoculars, and umbrellas. Indoors, guests will be greeted by a large gathering room, ideal for hosting indoor ceremonies.

Services Offered

Something Blue is a secluded haven that creates the perfect backdrop for intimate weddings. Helping you to plan your event is all part of what this couple loves.

    Perfect for a small ceremony!

    We were looking for a place in the mountains to have a small ceremony, toast, and dinner with 11 guests, but couldn't find anything that was both private (didn't want random hikers walking through our ceremony) and affordable. Stumbling across Something Blue was a true blessing. Lisa was very responsive, and the price is unbeatable for the amazing view you get there- it literally looks like you hiked a mountain to get married. We did the DIY sunset package and brought food, drinks, flowers, and a photographer and Lisa was really happy to provide a small cake of any flavor (and cake topper!). I also brought my own furniture because there was a certain vintage look that I wanted, but there is plenty of furniture already there so no need to bring your own. She also found me a HAMU artist for an incredible rate! Lisa and her husband helped with setup and cleanup too. If you are looking for a beautiful, private space to have a ceremony, toasts, and maybe dinner SBMV is for you! My only note- if you are wanting a more traditional reception, I would consider SBMV for your ceremony and then go somewhere else for dinner and dancing. They do seem to have a pretty strict end/leave time of sunset, as there is no outdoor lighting or way to accommodate guests once the sun has set. (Our photographer was Cait Bobo from Black Pine Photo).

    Thank you Brittney. What an amazing day we had here in April celebrating your wedding day with you and your new family. The trees were budding, the mountain fresh air was blowing through your veil and You were such a beautiful bride glowing in the sunshine. Congratulations again.
