About

Set on Grelen Nursery's 1000-acre tree nursery in Somerset, Virginia, The Market at Grelen is a magical wedding venue offering rural simplicity at its most luxurious. It has gorgeous 360-degree views and was lovingly designed to emphasize the surrounding natural beauty. Perfect for the creative party planner, this verdant venue features a variety of event spaces so that couples can make their special day their own. Located in Central Virginia between the sweet towns of Orange & Gordonsville, Grelen is only 35 minutes north of Charlottesville, one hour west of Richmond, and less than two hours south of Washington, DC.

Facilities and Capacity

The Market at Grelen can handle weddings up to 250 but we consider 150-200 our "sweet spot." The Shade Garden, Half-Moon Garden, Berry Field, and Greenhouse can all accommodate ceremonies of varying sizes. Cocktail hour options are countless but the Blue Ridge Patio, Pergola, and Shade Garden are some of the favorites, with the option to book both together. The gorgeous Orchard Overlook tent with its clear top is perfect for the reception and the Magnolia Cottage houses two brand-new large get-ready suites.

Many Grelen couples rent one or both of our two rental homes (Boxwood Villa or Spotswood Lodge) for lodging. These spaces can also host smaller events surrounding the wedding such as rehearsal dinners and brunches. They are both within 10 minutes of the main venue and add a bit of magic to a wedding weekend. The nearby Depot has three smaller event spaces and a two-room luxury suite. All three of these properties host weddings too.

Services Offered

Included in the venue fee are plant material for decor, round tables, garden chairs (150), bamboo folding chairs (175) or crossback chairs (175), banquet tables, tent lighting, sound, and a few barrel bars. In addition, the property has plenty of parking, shuttle access, and wheelchair access. The Market at Grelen will be ready to welcome you and your guests.

The Market at Grelen Made Our Wedding Dreams Come True!

My now husband and I visited 8 different venues and a few minutes into the tour of Grelen- we knew it had to be this one. We got married on October 7, 2023 and we could not be happier with that decision. All the staff are so professional, reliable, flexible, and kind (special shout out to Morgan!). They worked well with all our vendors and the whole day went off without a hitch. The venue is spectacularly beautiful. We did our ceremony in the half moon garden, cocktail hour on the stone terrace, and reception under the orchard tent. They are super flexible on how you use the space and you can move some plants and flowers around to use for your wedding! There are also sooo many good places for pictures. They made our dream wedding come true. If I could redo my wedding 100 times, I would still choose Grelen. We would 1000% recommend booking your wedding here!

Beautiful Venue

The Market at Grelen is breathtaking and their event team goes above and beyond to make sure your experience is wonderful. The photos and videos do not live up to how beautiful property is. I highly recommend - definitely worth it.

Beautiful space for a December Wedding

We hunted for a wedding venue for months before we found Market at Grelen. As soon as you drive onto the property, you know its going to be a special place. While we got married in December, the (heated) greenhouse setting and large overlook tent provided the perfect space for us and our 100 guests. We could not have been happier with the communication from the Grelen event staff, the day-of service provided, and overall experience with the venue itself. If you are a garden lover and want a space that you can transform into anything you want, book Market at Grelen - it's totally worth it.
