    Beautiful, Unique, Memorable

    Wow, this is a very special place! That is all I heard the entire time during the weekend of our wedding. Not a lot of people had heard of the Blackburn Inn, so the guess didn’t really know what to expect. Our guests were absolutely blown away with this venue.. The grounds are just so beautiful, very well kept and maintained. The Inn itself is a historical gem. I absolutely love incorporating pieces of history in events like weddings that symbolize a new future so it meant alot to me. Outside of the Inn’s rich history, it was recently renovated to build onto the historic beauty with a few more modern elements and it is gorgeous inside and out. They have a great little bistro inside that serves delicious food. My husband and I had an amazing breakfast English muffin that really started the day of our wedding on the best foot possible. We hosted our rehearsal dinner in the penthouse suite where my husband and I stayed for the duration of the weekend. That penthouse was everything and more. It was a little boho, a little industrial, a little historic, a little modern and very much me. That’s another thing I heard a lot that weekend, that the Blackburn Inn was very much my aesthetic. I agree with them as I did feel in my element there. I’d say we had between 15-20 people at the rehearsal dinner and we all fit perfectly and it created a private, intimate setting. We weren’t cramped at all and the food and service was absolutely amazing. They recently built a conference center on the property that allowed them to have a full kitchen and service staff and I was very impressed by the food and service we received during the rehearsal dinner. Everyone was full and happy and we ended the night upstairs on the patio of the penthouse. That patio was beautiful, it had a great view of Staunton and the grounds at the Inn. We spent a lot of time out there just enjoying the views and weather. Our wedding went perfectly! We got married in front of the inn in between their lovely fountains on their walk way that served as a built in aisle. Our reception was held under a tent on their grounds a short distance from the ceremony space. This was perfect as people had somewhere to go that was away from the ceremony space so we could use it for photo ops without people wandering in the background. We were allowed to use outside vendors for our food and bar, and we really appreciated that accommodation because some venues require you to use their preferred vendors or not allow any outside vendors at all. Everything was amazing, the Inn, their grounds, the penthouse. I couldn’t have wished for a better day or a better venue!

    The wedding of our dreams

    The Blackburn Inn was an AMAZING venue to work with. We were originally scheduled to be married in Cancun this Halloween, with Covid we made the heartbreaking decision to cancel our international destination wedding back in August. We knew we still wanted to be married this Halloween and have a celebration with those closest to us. We started looking online at different venues in Virginia and stumbled across the Inn. That weekend we came to view it and then within a couple of days we signed. Aimee Snyder was the reason we chose the Inn. She made us feel so special during our first visit and we instantly knew it was the venue. All in all, we made our wedding happen in 10 weeks!!! Our ceremony was in front of the Inn and we were the first wedding to be hosted in their brand new event and conference center! The entire Blackburn Inn team worked tirelessly for us to get things ready. The Executive Chef Ryan was a pleasure to work with. We had extremely strict dietary restrictions and he made sure that we were accommodated and well fed, not to mention everyone was raving about how good the food was! The drinks were also great, we had special drinks named after our dogs that Jeremy helped us to accommodate. The Inn made sure to have masks and hand sanitizers placed throughout our event and everything was extremely clean. The history of the inn is quite interesting and made it the perfect destination for our Halloween wedding. If you are thinking about getting married at Blackburn do not think twice! The team here will make sure that your wedding is executed beautifully.
