Sundara is a wonderful place to hold a wedding. They are very well managed and will do whatever they can to help ensure you have the day of your dreams. They made planning a wedding from out of town a breeze. They offered suggestions for catering, flowers, photographers, entertainers, etc. We couldn't have had a better experience and for that, we are extremely thankful for the management at Sundara.Sent on 11/12/2012

Sundara was the perfect location for our ceremony and reception. Sundara was always open and approachable to our ideas, questions and suggestions, as it pertained to the vibe and theme of our wedding day. We always felt that Sundara's attention was 100% on us - Patty never seemed to be preoccupied when meeting with us and was definitely completely focused on us and our details on our big day and even the days leading up to the wedding. Patty was more than willing to work with us within our budget. Patty was willing to work with us to ensure that no detail was left out. We could not have been happier. We cannot say enough about Sundara. Compared to other venues in the area, the value is unbeatable. Sundara is the best bang for your buck in town, and did I mention BEAUTIFUL!Sent on 12/19/2011

What a wonderful venue! We heard about Sundara through friends who had celebrated their wedding at the site. We met with Cari and booked it immediately. Most of our guests were traveling to the area for the first time and we wanted them to experience the beauty of the area in an elegant way, with exceptional food. Sundara provided all of that.
Working with Cari was seamless. We booked the site over a year in advance and were in consistent contact during all of the planning. She was responsive, hands on and professional. Since we were planning the event ourselves, her expertise was everything.
We had planned for the ceremony to be outside (in the open space with the mountain backdrop), and when it rained they seamlessly transformed the tent for the ceremony. It was stunning!
There were around 80 guests at the wedding and the tent was incredibly spacious and BEAUTIFUL! The lights, the flowers (highly recommend Gloriosa). Even though it was a rainy(ish) day/evening, we had the flaps of the tent open and it was really so very lovely.
The servers were spot on and the food was sublime. My husband and I (and pretty much all of the guests) are foodies (ok, maybe food snobs). And seriously... people were going back for second and third plates.
We didn't have a band or DJ - made some great playlists for each part of the evening. They had a great sound system and the guests literally danced the night away.
You will not be disappointed!!Sent on 08/06/2018

Sundara provided a true escape from reality on our wedding day! Surrounded by mountains, our guests loved every minute of the day and evening. If you want an outdoor wedding (with a beautiful tent provided), this is the best place in Virginia.Sent on 05/07/2014

Sundara was the first location my husband and I considered for our wedding. We knew it had everything we wanted. The tent was perfect and the arbor with everything in bloom was absolutely beautiful! The staff was very helpful and we enjoyed this venue very muchSent on 10/25/2011

Sundara was the breathtaking venue of our dreams! My husband and I really wanted to get married in the mountains, but without having to do it at a high end resort. Sundara was the perfect location of us, so authentic and beautiful, without being stuffy or pretentious.Sent on 05/05/2008
There are a few limitations with the location; it is their home also, but nothing ridiculous or deal breaking. For example, if you are hoping to party into the night, pick a different location, they like you to be done by 11pm, and trust me; a sunset wedding is amazing there, so if you start at 5pm, there is plenty of time to celebrate! Besides, it gives a nice cut off time for you and your new spouse to get way and start your time together!
Patty was wonderful, so sweet, and has a lot of great ideas and contacts. The best part, there is no required vendors, just suggestions, and if you don't take them, there is no problem, Patty isn't affiliated with anyone.
