Wedding venue review
We simply had a perfect wedding day on this beautiful property. Everything was spectacular and working with Diane and Tom was wonderful. The owners were so easy to work with and they did absolutely everything to ensure our day was perfect for us. They truly care about their couples. The barn is beautiful & the property and views are amazing. Thank you so very much for everything. I highly recommend this venue!Sent on 10/25/2019

Highly recommend this beautiful wedding venue!
Our daughter, Katie, had her wedding at Stoneyman Valley Ranch at the end of October and it turned out that hers was the first event held at this brand new venue in Luray, VA. We were delighted with the way everything turned out.Sent on 11/12/2018
Katie and her fiancé wanted an outdoor ceremony in a beautiful, rural setting. Stoneyman Valley Ranch is located below Skyline Drive with beautiful views of the mountains and farmland all around. There are a few options for the ceremony site and they chose to have theirs in front of a small stream that runs behind the newly built barn with the rolling hills in the background. The owners, Diane and Tom, provided a beautiful arbor and ensured that the area was nicely groomed. They also provided golf-cart rides to elderly attendees for the short ride from the parking lot to the seating area.
The barn was specifically built to host receptions and they put a lot of thought into all the details. There is a nice room for the bride and her attendants to get ready and the loft is the perfect spot for the groom's party to hang out before the ceremony. The chandelier and drop lighting in the barn helped create an elegant atmosphere for the reception and the chandeliers are visible from the road as guests arrive. We requested setup for 170 guests. With 17 large, round tables, there was plenty of room for buffet-style food service, a gift table, cake table, appetizers and a favor table. The floor is smooth concrete with a beautiful wood dance floor that easily accommodated our crowd. We were given plenty of time to decorate the day before and the owners offered suggestions and helped us get everything in place even when we had some last-minute changes.
Diane, Tom and their family went out of their way to make sure Katie and Keagan's wedding went smoothly and according to their vision. Any issues that cropped up were taken care of immediately without the bride or the guests knowing. Diane and Tom have shared some of their future plans for the venue, and we think Stoneyman Valley Ranch will quickly become the most popular wedding venue in the Luray area. We look forward to visiting again in a couple of years to see what they've added.
Lastly, Luray is a great place to get married. Plenty to do in the area if your guests like outdoor activities and want to make a weekend of it. Close enough to Baltimore and DC for a weekend destination wedding.
