Sylvanside Farm, originally established in 1774, carries romance and history in equal measure. The breath-taking views, historic barns, and manicured grounds are the perfect stage to host the farm wedding of your dreams. From walking down the aisle next to our spring-fed pond to dancing with your family and friends under the star-studded sky, there’s not a moment you won’t be surrounded in beauty. Our name translates from the Scottish, by the woods, which we believe gave ample material to build not one, but two large barns, a manor house, historic cottage, hunt box, and rustic smoke house. All of these structures, plus the farm's 25-acres of land and freshwater pond are available for our guests.
While there are many beautiful venues for you to consider, only Sylvanside offers scalability and ample accommodations on the farm for friends and family - we can welcome up to 400 guests for a sit-down event indoors (just in case Mother Nature doesn't know it's your special day!).
Rain or Shine--No matter the weather, we've got you covered. With multiple historic barns, picturesque pond overlooks, and rolling fields to choose from, you'll never have to think about clouds rolling in. We make your comfort our priority with indoor, easily-accessible restrooms close-by to both ceremony and reception sites.
When it comes to planning your big day, we know there are a lot of options to consider - that's why we make it our mission to have your venue selection be a piece of cake! The entire historic farm is exclusively yours during your stay, so rest assured you’ll have room to roam in privacy. With an assortment of included rentals and no-cost optional add-ons, we'll help you tailor the day to be as unique as your love - classic and all your own. Check out our website for complete list of our extensive complimentary offerings.
Weddings Your way-Let's work together to make your special day truly yours. With the backdrop of our stunning grounds, ceremony locations, and reception sites, you can let your creative imagination run wild. But don't worry - we've got a full list of complimentary offerings to get you started, from reception tables and cross-back ceremony chairs to on-call Clydesdales for your photoshoot. And, as always, the grounds are exclusively yours on your wedding day with any of our packages.
The Test of Time-When you step on the grounds of Sylvanside, time seems to stop. Centuries of history await you with the old-world charm of stone barns, rolling fields, and formal gardens. Where better to begin your next chapter than the land that has been hand-built, seasoned by tradition, and withstood the test of time?

Terri and Jeff saved our wedding! A week before our planned outdoor wedding, the threat of Hurricane Florence forced us to decide to change venues last minute. Our caterer helped us find Sylvanside Farm, and just 5 days before our wedding Terri and Jeff welcomed us and it was absolutely perfect!
The farm, cottages, and barns are all breathtaking and there are beautiful views in every direction. We had our ceremony in the smaller barn and held our reception in the larger barn which worked out perfectly for us and our 115 guests.
Terri, Jeff, Jane and Amy were amazing and so accommodating leading up and the day of. They made sure we had the best day possible for all of our family and friends. Everyone had an amazing time and are still talking about the venue and how beautiful everything was!

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.
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.

Have you booked your venue yet? Good! Call Sylvanside Farm IMMEDIATELY! Terri and Jeff, the owners, are incredible people. Simply incredible. Once you meet them, you will come to know what every other review here is talking about. I cannot stress enough how important it was to Sean and I to book a venue based on the feeling it gave us and to know that the people involved with our wedding would have the same passion, love, and respect that we have for each other. Terri and Jeff are beautiful people who simply want to share their farm that they are so proud of with others and help every bride and groom have the best day possible. I couldn't have dreamed of a better venue.
The farm is breathtaking. As stated by several, the pictures do not do it justice. You really must see it in person. There are so many options for ceremony locations and both barns are amazing...not to mention the craftsmanship. The history of the property lingers on the land and I tell my family and friends there is an energy to Sylvanside that is so calming and welcoming that will just come over you when you get there. I am beyond excited to have my wedding here in September of 2019. Every time I visit, there have been new updates made...Jeff is a power house and if he says he is going to do something, he does it and does it ten times better than you even thought it would be! When I have a bad week at work, there is nothing better than heading to the farm for Terri hugs and furry animal therapy!
This venue offers the below options which may impact pricing:
We are offering 25% off all of our remaining June, July and August wedding dates for 2019—and yes, we have some Saturday’s available!
If you are trying to find the perfect barn venue in Loudoun County, this is the place! Sylvanside is absolutely magical. And with TWO stunning barns to choose from, you can't go wrong! The property has so many beautiful trees and fields, a pond, horses - just endless amazing options for wedding photos. Terri and Jeff both go above and beyond for their clients, so they will make sure your wedding day is perfect!
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!
