Highly Recommend the Wool Factory for your Charlottesville Wedding!

Cannot recommend the Wool Factory enough. Danielle was so helpful in ensuring all the details were buttoned down and the day went smoothly. The space is gorgeous and the food was delicious. Many people told us it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding and we agree! Definitely recommend the Wool Factory if you are looking to get married in Charlottesville.

Exactly as we hoped!

We had an idea in mind - we wanted a modern space, with a touch of elegance, and most of all a place for a super fun celebration. The Wool Factory delivered it all. From the beginning of the process, the staff was thoughtful and helpful, providing their expertise while not ever feeling pushy. They accommodated us along the way and did everything possible to provide what we needed. Everything ran like clockwork on our wedding day, the food was excellent, the staff was completely on top of everything, and if there were bumps, we never noticed them. It was exactly as we hoped for - a beautiful, and super fun celebration, at a place with a really cool vibe. We recommend The Wool Factory without hesitation!

The Wool Factory is Amazing!

We initially toured the Wool Factory when it was still undergoing renovations and could tell right off the bat that it was going to be something special. We were not disappointed in the least! This is such a stunning place--an urban, industrial building nestled in green hills with streams.

We had such an amazing experience working with Claire and Danielle throughout the entire process (and through COVID). They both were incredibly helpful with any questions or concerns we had and always got back to us quickly. It really put us at ease knowing that we had professionals handling our event, especially given that we were not local to Charlottesville.

The food is incredible! Everything at our tasting was so delicious that we had a difficult time narrowing down what to choose. We also opted to have the desserts made in house instead of having a wedding cake and they were beyond words. If you're a foodie this is your place!

The food is amazing, any space at the venue is breathtaking, and we received so many compliments from people at our wedding about how much they loved everything about it. We're so grateful to have found the Wool Factory for our wedding!
