The Market at Grelen is a magical wedding venue set on a 1000-acre tree nursery in Somerset, Virginia, just 30 minutes away from downtown Charlottesville. As you exchange your vows and begin your new life together as a married couple, you will be surrounded by a gorgeous natural backdrop. Whether you are hosting an intimate elopement with a few of your loved ones, or planning a much larger ceremony and reception, you will be able to experience an unforgettable wedding amidst the gardens and Blue Ridge Mountain views.

Facilities and Capacity
Not only is the Market at Grelen perfect for hosting ceremonies and receptions, but also bridal showers, engagement parties, and rehearsal dinners. There are four main spaces which includes indoor, covered outdoor, and uncovered outdoor options. Depending on which space you choose, different amounts of seated guests can be accomodated. For example, the Orchard Overlook Tent accommodates 250 seated guests, the Greenhouse accommodates 50 seated guests, the Stone Terrace accommodates 100 seated guests, and the Shade Garden accommodates 40 seated guests. Couples, wedding parties and close family are encouraged to rent one of Grelen's two properites (Boxwood Villa or Spotswood Lodge) which are only 10 minutes away from The Market. The Boxwood Villa, which is a renovated 1850 home, is a very private setting surrounded by oak trees and sleeps 10. Spotswood Lodge is more of a farmhouse in style with space for 20 guests. Both add to the weekend and can be used to host brunches and rehearsal dinners.

Services Offered
Couples will be provided with round tables, garden chairs, banquet tables, and a barrel bar to use on their big day. Additionally, details like lighting and sound are also included in the starting site fee.

Planters can be rented or plastic pots can be wrapped in fabric/burlap by planner. Plants cannot be used as centerpieces鈥攋ust for space decoration.)

    Amazing venue

    This venue is amazing. The tent under the lights is stunning & the character of the rest of place (pergola, half moon garden, greenhouse) is all so unique. All the logistics of the venue were pretty straightforward, staff was easy to work with, and competitive prices for the area. Highly recommend!

    Unsurpassed Beauty

    When we originally received the idea of checking out Grelen from our wedding planner, we looked at the website and were interested enough to set up a viewing appointment. The website, however, did nothing to prepare us for how unbelievably gorgeous this property is. Not only did we feel immediately at home working with the event team including Kristen and Morgan, but the location offered endless options for breathtaking photos, a gorgeous ceremony, and a fantastic tent to celebrate the night away. We were lucky enough to house our wedding party at nearby Spotswood Lodge, where we received the same level of professional service and rustic charm. Grelen itself feels like a getaway to some other part of the world entirely, yet also beautifully showcases all that Virginia has to offer. While we received so many compliments for the day itself, the number we received regarding the venue itself was overwhelming. We can't wait to return to the market, cafe and nursery so we can relive our gorgeous event for years to come.

    Stunning views, friendly staff, an all-around great venue

    Got married here in November, and it was everything we could've hoped for and more. The venue has everything you need to host a fun, memorable wedding with a beautiful backdrop, and I can't imagine having had my wedding anywhere else.
