Facilities and Capacity
There are numerous locations on the property to host an outdoor or indoor event. Sylvanside Farm is the only venue in Virginia to include two barns for your celebration. One can be used for your cocktail hour and the other for dinner and dancing. This means there is a built in rain plan as either barn can be used to quickly move a ceremony inside if necessary. Also included is a manor house, 2 cottages for overnight stays and rustic smokehouse on the property to use for your wedding ceremony, reception, rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, engagement party, or elopement. As many as 400 guests are welcome for a sit-down reception and the venue includes both the ceremony and reception tables and chairs. The barns are breathtaking with massive vaulted ceilings and elegant light fixtures. The houses on the property can serve as get-ready rooms for you and members of your wedding party as well as accommodations for you on the wedding night.

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.Sent on 08/10/2018

Catherine and Patrick's wedding
Terri and Jeff have made their beautiful property available for events and offer so much hospitality. Our guests were shuttled from parking to the ceremony. Our guests not only enjoyed the gorgeous views, but were able to walk through the grounds, feed the horses and play games. The bridal party enjoyed the fire pit and staying the night on site. Amelia worked diligently to make sure no detail was left out. There were so many extras included in the price, for example accommodations for the bride and groom and their bridal party, chairs, tables and other decorations that would have cost extra or not been offered at other venues. We absolutely will recommend Sylvanside to our friends.Sent on 11/03/2019

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!
