    The Perfect Day at the Perfect Venue

    Red August created a stunning backdrop for my daughter and her new husband's wedding! The owners were so friendly, flexible, and attentive to our every need or want! The beautiful buildings and perfectly manicured grounds created the perfect picture for the perfect day!

    I went to Red August for a consultation for a future wedding. They have such an amazing property and are incredibly responsive in terms of setting up dates and times to view their property!! 10/10 would recommend!

    Beautiful Venue!

    Red August is a beautiful venue that was perfect for our special day! We were able to have the ceremony outside in front of the gorgeous fireplace, then cocktail hour underneath the barn and then our reception inside the barn that fit our 165 guests very well. The owners were very accommodating and the bridal suite was the perfect spot to get ready!

    Perfect Experience!!

    Red August was absolutely perfect for our big day! The owners were so sweet and helpful, anytime we wanted to stop by (which we did frequently) they were more than happy to walk us around and give us tips and ideas to personalize the barn! Couldn’t recommend more!

    Most gorgeous wedding venue!

    Debbie and her husband at Red August Farm are so kind. Having our wedding there was so amazing and the best experience we could have ever asked for. They worked with us on everything. Debbie even came out on the setup day and gave us helpful tips. I wish we could get married all over again just to experience it one more time. Absolutely wonderful people and venue all around. 10 out of 10!

    Wonderful Experience

    We had an amazing experience with Red August Farm! It is such a beautiful venue, and it was so nice that we had it available the whole weekend. We were able to have the rehearsal dinner and wedding there, and both were absolutely beautiful! There is a lovely bridal suite that my bridesmaids and I stayed at the night before and got ready there the day of. It was very convenient to be able to stay on site. There is also a place for the groom and his groomsmen to get ready the day of the wedding. The owners are so sweet and helpful, and were always quick to answer any questions or requests we had. They gave great advice for vendors, and were overall just wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking!

    We couldn’t have asked for a better place to have our wedding! Debbie is so friendly and flexible and the barn is large enough to accommodate a larger guest list!

    Gorgeous Venue!

    Our daughter just got married at Red August Farm on June 15th and everything was amazing! The venue is simply beautiful and Mark and Debbie are a pleasure to work with. Debbie always responded quickly to any questions we had. We loved that you have access to the venue the entire weekend. We hosted the rehearsal dinner on Friday evening in the bar area of the barn, catered by Vito's Italian Restaurant in Harrisonburg and it was just the right amount of space! The bridal suite is amazing! Plenty of room for the girls to relax while getting ready, with lots of mirrors and lighting. My daughter and her husband stayed there after the wedding, which was perfect. I would definitely recommend Red August Farm!

    A Perfect Weekend at Red August Farm!

    We had our wedding at Red August Farm on June 15, 2019 and we absolutely loved our venue! Mark and Debbie made us fall in love with Red August Farm from first glance as we drove up the beautiful tree lined driveway. The venue was everything we could've imagined and more! The grounds at Red August Farm are so beautiful. We were able to have our Rehearsal and dinner there on Friday evening, Ceremony and Reception on Saturday, and had plenty of time to clean-up on Sunday. The bridal suite is a dream and it made getting ready so fun! Mark and Debbie made the weekend so relaxing and we were so blessed to be able to use their venue for the perfect wedding weekend! I am still receiving compliments from our guests on how beautiful and perfect our venue was! I would recommend Red August Farm over and over again!

    Perfect wonderful

    Can not say enough great things about Red August Farm and the owners. The very best value for the price. Was able to have everything in one place. Rehearsal and dinner to wedding and reception. Great location, not far from hotels or stores. Bridal suite is just perfect for all the girls. They spent the night before the wedding there and had a great time. Had hair and makeup done and those folks all agreed it was the best arrangement for them to work in.
    Rented piano and had violinist which fit perfect into gazebo. Outside lawn, swing, driveway, flowers and lights beautiful. Inside barn perfect and specious. Tables and chairs available.
    Red August Farm helped make my daughters wedding perfect and magical.

    Perfect Wedding Venue!

    Red August was the perfect place for our wedding ceremony and reception. Debbie was super helpful and flexible! Red August is also the only barn venue in the area that I felt was large enough to comfortably have the ceremony and reception inside in case of rain, which made the weather one less thing to worry about!

    The perfect venue!

    Red August Farm is a dream venue! My (now) husband and I took a tour and knew in that moment that’s where we wanted to get married - we didn’t even look anywhere else. We only have wonderful things to say about Red August! It’s spacious- there are so many cute spots to take pictures, and the barn can hold around 300 people comfortably. There is so much space and so many different features (arbor, fireplace, chapel, etc) to really make your ceremony your own. You have it for the whole weekend, which is super helpful. We were able to start setting up on Friday and have the rehearsal dinner there, and then we had time on Sunday morning to clean up. The views on the farm are beautiful. The owners are so sweet and easy to work with. Debbie was always helpful and quick to respond when we had questions. Oh, and the bridal suite is gorgeous! My bridesmaids and I stayed there the night before the wedding, and we were all able to get ready there on the day of. I could go on and on about how amazing this venue is. I would highly recommend Red August Farm to anyone!! 😊

    Mark and Debbie will treat you like part of their family

    We came away from our wedding weekend wishing we could stay at the Red August Farm forever. The property is idyllic (the pictures speak for themselves, but you have to see it in person also) and Mark and Debbie were personally one of the best parts of our wedding weekend.

    In an industry where vendor mishaps/all things commercial loom over what is supposed to be one of your most intimate and personal occasions, Mark and Debbie have gotten it right. Instead of hourly fees and branding, they simply invite you to make their beautiful property your home for the weekend, and leave you alone.

    For an extremely reasonable price, the property is yours Fri-Sun. You can use Friday however you like (we did some setup, held the rehearsal, cooked and BBQ'd our own rehearsal dinner food out of the guest house, and let kids run around all evening while we played games and roasted marshmallows) and you can hold the Saturday wedding on whatever timeline you wish, and as late into the night as you like (we had a lunchtime wedding and followed it up with an all-day affair of inviting people to come and go, dress casually, play games, etc...and then used the barn proper for a more traditional wedding dinner in the evening - followed by more games and marshmallow roasting). The guest house/bridal suite has all you need along the way, and most importantly Mark and Debbie are very flexible about visits for planning as the day approaches.

    If you want your wedding weekend to be a special and personal event that is as free from the commercialized industry as possible, go visit the Red August Farm and meet Mark and Debbie. I cannot recommend this venue enough - we are already talking about having an anniversary party there!

    Perfect Wedding

    You will not find a more beautiful location or amazing owners to work with when planning your wedding. The owners are so helpful and go above and beyond to make sure every detail is perfect. Their experience even helped with cool ideas we’d never considered. Our daughter was blown away with the venue — the barn is amazing and the bridal suite was ideal for preparation and relaxing prior to the ceremony. This place is the total package for a one stop, all inclusive location. The rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony and reception in one perfect place! We are so glad we picked Red August Farm to make this forever memory for our family.

    We loved getting married at the Red August Farm. The owners are super flexible, friendly and responsive.

    Truly Spectacular

    This property is truly great! The versatility to make it your own for your BIG day is so appealing. Debbie was so warm and welcoming and the bridal suite was to die for!! It is really a one stop shop...from getting ready, to ceremony to reception...everything can be done on the property! My August wedding was everything I could have asked for and more. Red August Farm was the perfect choice.

    Best wedding venue!

    We had an incredible experience working with Debbie and Mark at Red August Farm. Our wedding was more wonderful than we could have imagined and a great deal of that is due to this perfect venue. They were easy to work with, super friendly, and made our needs their top priority. Debbie and Mark allowed us to stop by as many times before the wedding as we needed/wanted to make sure we had every detail perfectly planned. The bridal suite was an absolute dream! We had a fantastic time getting ready and staying there. We were able to decorate the day before the wedding and hold the rehearsal on site. We never felt rushed. The barn is stunning, the patio underneath with a bar was perfect for cocktail hour, and the views are unbeatable. We can't thank Red August enough for making our wedding day unbelievably perfect!

    My daughter was recently married here and there simply aren't enough wonderful words to describe our experience! The venue is gorgeous, with many options for the ceremony both outside with breathtaking views and inside. The bridal suite is simply stunning with so many extras to pamper the bridal party. Debbie and Mark were outstanding hosts who went above and beyond to help ensure her day was perfect! We visited several venues before this one, Debbie made the difference from the beginning with her genuine caring and dedication to making the day uniquely special for my daughter and son-in-law! I I'm a very satisfied client!

    Best Wedding Venue in/around Staunton

    Me and my husband (fiancé at the time) came across this wonderful place driving down the road, we got to meet Debbie and one of her grandsons for a wonderful vision tour of what the barn was being converted into (they were still in construction mode). The results for our wedding were everything we could dream of and more!

    The venue is the perfect blend of classiness with keeping the original barn look and feel. The downstairs bar was ideal for our weekend meals. The spacious barn gave us room to fit our guests in and the open yard made it so guests were able to enjoy the warm summer day!

    The bridal suite was absolutely amazing! Plenty of room for me and my girls to get ready; our hair dressers loved having the salon chairs to work with! It was also relaxing to be able to stay there after the reception!

    The family is great to work with! As I was planning our wedding from the mid-west, they helped make everything come perfectly together. They were easy to plan visits with, they answered my endless questions and they helped accommodate the “special” ideas that made our day wonderful and ours.

    I would highly recommend this venue! Finding a beautiful venue with everything we wanted and finding a great family to work with is hard; Debbie and Mark definitely have both! Wonderful place to get married and wonderful people to work with!

    My wife and I were married at Red August Farm on June second. We actually had another venue but when we went to do our engagement pictures last year, my wife fell in love with the venue and we decided this is where we wanted to be married. When we first toured the venue, Jeff and Debbie had just recently acquired the property and were in the beginning stages of turning it into a wedding venue. Stopping in from time to time over the last year and a half and seeing all of the hard work that has been put into the venue has been amazing. We toured a lot of other venues and nothing comes close to Red August Farm. Jeff and Debbie were always there to help with any and everything we needed no matter how small the question. On our wedding day, three hours before our ceremony it began to rain buckets. We scrambled to move everything inside the barn and was able to set up for 160 people and not disturb the already set up reception. There was more than enough room for everything, and even though we had to move inside the setting was still great. My wife loved being able to stay there in the Bridal Suite the night before with her bridesmaids.
