5 stars are not nearly enough!
It's hard to find the words to tell you just how amazing our experience was at Sylvanside. The setting is absolutely everything we could have dreamed of; but for us, the real joy was working with Jeff, Terri, and Amelia. They were so helpful, accommodating, and sincere.Sent on 08/31/2019
Terri and Amelia both had great suggestions for nearby florists, bed and breakfasts, and rehearsal dinner options. And Jeff took time out every time we visited to update us on all the amazing work he had finished since our last visit. He even agreed to take on additional work painting a picture stand and an arbor when my mom decided she didn't like the current color!
Our guests continue to rave about the farm, the amazing vintage furniture, the awesome fire pit out back, and the way the lights in the barn made everything more romantic. (And hotly debate whether the swans in the pond are real or not!)
There's an amazing supply closet that contains all kinds of great things for you to use at will -- hundreds of votives and LED candles, vases, lanterns, frames, fabric -- the list goes on. This saved us from buying *lots* of things we would otherwise have only used once and it was fun to "shop" in there for items and ideas.
It was great to be able to stay on the property and have our family close by in the big cottage as well. It provided the perfect place to sneak out for a few moments alone after the ceremony and then savor the very end by the fire. We 're also *very* excited to have a great place to come back to celebrate future anniversaries and the like.

We spent a wonderful, relaxing weekend on the farm - a perfect getaway from the city. The renovated, well appointed Hunt Box is the perfect size for a couple. When you wake up in the morning, you overlook green pasture and horses (missing it already!). Our 10 year old lab also loved being out in the country and exploring the spacious property, incuding a few swims in the pond.Sent on 08/10/2018
Terri and Jeff have done an amazing job with this pre-revolutionary property - no detail overlooked. We look forward to returning and bringing our friends...and even hosting a 50th birthday party, including a tour of the local vineyards.
Sylvanside Farm's reply:Thank you so much for your review Warren! We look forward to having you again soon for your next event!

As an event planner I am always on the look out for new and unique venue spaces. I found Sylvanside Farm while researching venues for a client looking for a barn for her wedding. I reached out to Terry and Jeff via email to learn more about the property. Terry was so enthusiastic as she shared the story of how she and Jeff acquired the property and painted a picture of its beauty, history and attributes that make it an ideal event property. Two months later I was able to visit Sylvanside Farm and meet Terry and Jeff. I was blown away by what I saw. Terry and Jeff have a vision and are working hard to make this property a perfect choice for couples looking for special place to say I Do. They shared their plans and asked for suggestions and listened intently as I provided advice. In just the few months since I first visited they have made so many upgrades. Gorgeous lighting in the barn, a golf cart to move guests, tables and beautiful bow back chairs, new flooring in the barn, a fire pit, etc. Sylvanside Farm is a venue I will refer over and over to my clients looking for a quintessential Virginia wedding venue. When you book your wedding the property is yours for the entire weekend. There are TWO barns, a manor house, a one bedroom bridal cottage, a 3-bedroom home and a cute little space to do hair and makeup. Did I mention the Clydsdale Horses? And there is Jeff and Terry, the owners, who sincerely want to do everything they can to make your event amazing.
As a photographer, I visited Sylvanside Farm and not only is the location gorgeous (with beautiful locations for photos and a ceremony), but the owners, Jeff & Terri are delightful! They take pride in their property and have thought through many details to create a relaxing and fun environment for weddings and their guests! I can't wait to see all the beautiful, romantic and love filled weddings that will be hosted at this historic location!
