Best decision we made!
Sundara for us was love at first sight. We'd visited a half dozen wedding venues, but from the moment we set foot on this gorgeous property, something clicked. Not only was it beautiful, with big trees, gardens, and the laid back elegance we were looking for for our outdoor wedding, the owner Patty and venue manager Cari made us feel so at home. During the year leading up to our wedding, Cari was unbelievably helpful - answering all of our many questions, offering advice, meeting with us at the property several times, and helping to keep everything organized. By the time our wedding arrived, Cari felt almost like an extended member of our family. I cannot say enough about what she did to make our day everything we'd hoped for. Cari took care of absolutely everything so my bridesmaids, my mom and I could just relax and enjoy the day. After several months of stressing about all the little details, it was so nice to be able to leave everything in her hands and know that it would be beautiful. Even when an unexpected thunderstorm struck during our cocktail hour, Cari sprung into action, getting us under the tent, saving our guestbook, the furniture, etc. from the rain, and still making sure everything went off without a hitch. Our wedding was in August and our friends and family are still talking about how beautiful Sundara is and how much fun they had at our wedding. Having our wedding there was the best decision we made during the wedding planning process, and I highly, highly recommend it to anyone looking for an amazing outdoor venue.

A wonderful place and people
Cari, the venue manager, made everything so easy and was so helpful. We live in South Carolina and to plan everything from afar and she was very responsive to all of my questions and ideas that I had. I was pretty clueless about planning a wedding and she walked me through it all. I could not have asked for a more beautiful venue or a more accommodating staff to work with. There was no other place I would have rather had our wedding.

The Best Venue in ROA
My husband (so excited to finally say that!) and I looked at wedding venues in Virginia, when we got engaged (Dec. 2016), for a little while. We were determined to find THE one, THE perfect place and we knew we would know it right away when we found it. We live in the Cayman Islands (in the Caribbean), but Virginia has always been my second home, since my dad is from there and took us there every summer growing up. It’s sentimental, it’s part of who I am, and we needed the location to reflect how much this place means to me, to us. We wanted fall (October was our chosen month) and we wanted mountains. A beautiful mountain backdrop.
I don’t remember how we came across Sundara’s name, but when we opened their website for the first time, the first photo that greets you is a shot of a ceremony under the most gorgeous tree (I forget what kind it is) with the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains mountains in the backdrop. This tree, which I later learned is one of the ceremony spots you can pick from on the property, looked as though it was wrapping its branches around the couple standing under the arbor for their beautiful ceremony. All I knew is that I wanted that. I wanted this to be my location of my incredibly special day and have a photo like this to remember it all.
Cari Dones is the Sundara Venue Manager, but more than that, she is your calm, cool, collected, resourceful, helpful, willing, encouraging executioner of your plans for your special day and lucky us, we also call her a friend. She was there for us every single step of the way throughout our planning process, always being accommodating to try and arrange phone meetings overseas with us, being available for our visits throughout the year, ensuring I had all my details put together...she was there professionally but also joyfully. She loves what she does and that’s the most important feeling to get from someone who is taking all your wedding plans and bringing them to fruition.
Sundara is the best choice for a wedding venue because of its magnificent beauty alone. But beyond that, you have some much available to you all in one location: a decor pay it forward closet for you to use items from weddings before, a sister catering company, Blue Ridge Catering, who does THE BEST job at giving you incredibly delicious food, the glamping tent for your first night together as husband and wife (we did this and it was the most romantic night ever), sparklers for a sparkler send-off, a beautiful home to get ready in on the property, a list of trusted vendors for you to choose from to help you narrow your options and more. You would be paying for all these things separately anyway, so it made things FAR EASIER to have everything in one location and have vendors that usually do business with this venue so they know it very well.
I spent my day getting ready in my bridal suite without a worry in the world (and I’m a very detailed, organized, worrying person) because I knew everything was in good hands and I couldn’t have been more right. Every single thing about our day was perfect and not a single thing was out of place; everything came together magnificently and blew us away. We will forever be grateful to have had the most gorgeous day of our lives and to have had everything come together in this very, very special place.
Thank you, Sundara, Cari, BRC and all of our vendors.
