While the vineyard and tasting room appeal to wine lovers and enthusiasts, their spectacular venue spaces and world-class cuisine make it the perfect place for an unforgettable wedding that exudes romance and beauty.
As an organization, Pippin Hill is inspired by the simpler pleasures in life. Including garden-to-table cuisine that uses local ingredients, warm professionalism, effortless hospitality, and of course, organic beauty. Whatever the season, their property is absolutely gorgeous. All of their spaces are equipped to handle whatever weather your wedding day may hold in store.
With over 30 years of experience in hospitality, Pippin Hill wedding venue’s owners have spent decades developing luxury properties. Pippin Hill is the accumulation of their expertise and knowledge of what makes lavish weddings run even more smoothly.
The property also includes a gorgeous renovated historic inn, perfect for accommodating you and a few select guests for a convenient and luxurious stay that puts you right in the center of the action for your wedding day.
There are several different indoor and outdoor spaces that you can utilize to create a beautiful and cohesive wedding.
First, begin your day by getting ready in one of two spaces, The Loft and Pippin Hill Wine Cellar. The Loft is a beautiful suite for you and your party to relax and be pampered. It has large windows that let in gorgeous natural light, perfect for getting ready photos. The room has a hair and makeup bar, a sitting area with comfortable furniture, and a three-paneled mirror perfect for an exquisite full-body bridal shot.
Your partner and their party can get ready in the Pippin Hill Wine Cellar. The cellar comes with a spacious dressing room, plush leather furniture, and a TV to keep everyone entertained as they prepare. Both rooms have access to a room-service-style menu that offers a variety of snacks, beverages, and sparkling wine for a celebratory toast.
For your ceremony, there are two beautiful lawn spaces. The Main Lawn is perfect for accommodating groups of up to 200. Meanwhile, the Vineyard Lawn is ideal for guest counts under 140 people. Both lawns are positioned to take advantage of spectacular sunset views. But the Main Lawn has breathtaking mountain views that make a gorgeous backdrop.
If you prefer an indoor ceremony (or if unpredictable weather comes into play), the weather-protected Veranda can be fully enclosed, making a perfect ceremony spot with candle-lit lanterns, bistro lighting, and extra perks like space heaters, sun shades, and overhead fans.
Host a beautiful cocktail on The Veranda, a classic stone space with the feel of Tuscany right in the heart of Virginia. It’s also a great spot to enjoy the sunset overlooking a landscaped courtyard and mountains, and your guests can enjoy mingling over a delicious cocktail while we slip out to take Golden Hour photos.
The Granary is an ideal space for a romantic reception, with a 2-story vaulted ceiling and plenty of space for up to 200 guests for dinner and dancing. The space has a gorgeous barn-inspired aesthetic with details like rooftop cupolas and rich hardwood floors that capture the charm of an era gone by but with all of the perks of a modernized event venue designed by event and hospitality professionals.
If you have a smaller event planned, The Reserve Room has a sophisticated and upscale ambiance for up to 70 people. The dining room opens to a gorgeous stone terrace with breathtaking mountain and valley views. Plus, the Tasting Room is available to reserve in the evenings, including cafe seating around handcrafted farm tables and a Tuscan-style wood-burning oven. It’s a great flex space or perfect for overflow if you need a little extra room for your guests.
The grounds of Pippin Hill are absolutely perfect for timelessly romantic photos. You will be surrounded by green lawns, lush landscaping, and mystical mountains. The exterior of the venue has an elegant, rustic charm, which adds an element of barn-like sophistication and style to pictures. There is so much greenery and natural beauty that we can use for your photos. Plus, we’ll be able to wander through the vineyards for some beautiful couple portraits! The scenery will enhance every one of your pictures, including your stunning ceremony shots, and even indoors, there are plenty of architectural features we can use to create unique and gorgeous portraits. You’ll fall in love with your beautiful wedding album full of memories that will transport you right back to your wedding day.
Pippin Hill knows that the success of an event is all in the details. So they’ve designed their facilities and wedding packages to make sure every detail is thoughtfully accounted for. By offering event packages with full culinary service and unique menus customized to your tastes and preferences, they can ensure that any last-minute issues are eliminated. Additionally, the hassle of working with an outside vendor doesn’t even have to cross your mind.
On your wedding day, they’ll focus on making sure all venue and catering-related runs smoothly. But they do require their couples to hire a Professional Planner (full or partial coordination.) So everything else runs according to schedule. They have a list of Creative Partners from which you can choose your planner. Or you can have your own pre-approved by their events team.
