    Dream Venue w/ Stunning Views!

    My fiancé and I just booked The Seclusion for our March 2020 wedding! We toured the barn in March and were absolutely blown away. We came back in April with my parents and sealed the deal. The chic barn, breathtaking views, and gracious owners made our decision easy. I mean it when I say, I don't think there is a more beautiful venue out there.

    Trish has been a joy to work with! You can tell she poured her heart into the venue. Every detail has so much thought behind it (from the chandeliers, to the bar, to the mirrors, to the gorgeous bridal loft).

    Not only does she care about the venue, she also cares about the couples using it! I love that she’s interested in the details of every single wedding. Trish went above and beyond when we asked for recommendations for caterers, hotels, wedding planners, florists, etc. She has made our initial wedding planning seamless and fun. We CANNOT wait for our special day and to follow the success of this new venue in the coming months!

    The Seclusion's reply:

    Thank you for the kind words Audrey. We hope you can come out one evening this summer and have a glass of wine and star gaze with us. 🍷✨
    Trish :)

    Beautiful venue

    This venue is gorgeous. The views are hands-down the most stunning in Virginia and if we had to do it all over again, we would still pick The Seclusion. Everything on site is beautiful. It’s expensive, but worth it. My only two suggestions that would improve the experience are: 1. Being allowed to store wedding items at the venue before and after the event 2. Pest treatment for the gnats that are present around some areas of the property. It would also be nice to be able to stay a little later on site but understand without more storage why that’s required for cleanup. Everything else is top notch and all of our guests were completely wowed.

    The views are priceless!

    My fiance and I stumbled upon The Seclusion one evening after days of online research of venues and coming up with the same results over and over (we weren't really excited about any of them prior). As soon as I saw The Seclusion, I was stunned and immediately thought, "wow this is it!" We reached out and got a response right away from co-owner, Trish. She was so helpful and communicative answering all of our initial questions. A few months later, we decided to visit the site once construction was further along (we live 3 hours away). The Seclusion is the only venue that we saw in person and we fell in love with it even more once we stepped on the grounds. The views of the mountains are all around and can't be beat. Both Trish and Brian are so hands on with the project and the space is beautifully designed. We can't wait to get married here next year!

    The Seclusion's reply:

    Thank you for the kind review Nim. Brian and I thoroughly enjoyed your company. :) Anytime you want to check on construction let us know. You like our other couples are welcome to pop in anytime.
