"Early Mountain had absolutely everything we were seeking in a wedding venue - a stunning location, beautiful indoor ceremony space (in the event of inclement weather), wonderful spaces for both the bride and groom to prepare for the day, and was within our budget! They also worked with our Monday wedding date, and even offered a lower price because of the weekday! We cannot stop raving about EMV. High recommend!"
"Early Mountain was the perfect location for our wedding. Delores and her team are fantastic and made the entire process so easy. We loved having the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all at the same site, and Early Mountain's event spaces are nothing less than stunning. The fireplaces and long farm tables looked perfect at our November wedding. "
"The venue was so accommodating with any requests that I had. Maggie & Taylor thought of everything and were always easy to communicate. Our wedding day was absolutely magical due to this beautiful venue and all the fantastic people that work at EMV!"
"Beautiful vineyard, lovely place to get married! Plus there's the added bonus of the cottage to get ready in! So beautiful and perfect. We decided to do the ceremony indoors and cocktail hour on the patio for a late March wedding. It was perfect!"
"EMV was exactly what we were looking for in a wedding venue! From their immaculate facility, extreme attention to detail, to the five star costumer service, we knew EMV was where we wanted to share and create our wedding day memories. The only hiccup for us was the price of a Saturday wedding. After exhausting almost every other venue in all of the Charlottesville/Blue Ridge Mt area and finding nothing that compared, we returned to EMV to discuss alternative dates and pricing. Nicolette and Maggie exceeded our expectations by offering numerous suggestions and negotiations in order for us to make everything possible. We decided on a Friday wedding and could not have been happier! It was a perfect August day that we shared with all of our family and friends and finished the evening reminiscing under the stars sitting on the back porch of the wedding cottage that was reserved just for us!"
"I can honestly say it was love at first sight when my fiancé and I visited Early Mountain VIneyard (EMV)! It was the first venue we looked at after getting engaged and, while we toured many other potential options in the Charlottesville, VA area, nothing came close to EMV. We were immediately blown away during our initial visit, beginning with the gorgeous tasting room when you walk in, followed by the breathtaking wedding event spaces. We wanted to get married in March and weather can be unpredictable, so our venue needed to have space to host the ceremony and reception indoors and the Event Hall at EMV was perfect for both. It actually snowed the Thursday before our wedding, and it didn't matter at all! There was ample space to host our 115 guests (majority of which traveled from South Florida) in a cozy, beautiful atmosphere that everyone absolutely LOVED! Some of our engaged friends actually told us they had “venue envy” after seeing EMV for the first time! And, access to the Bridal Cottage and Lounge/Library made our day that much better as the entire bridal party got to hang out and relax at the venue before the festivities began. Aside from the quality and charm of the venue itself, the EMV staff was INCREDIBLE - we chose EMV more than a year in advance and Maggie (our Event Coordinator) was wonderful and super responsive the entire time. We also worked with Nicolette, who was also awesome, so no matter whom you work with at Early Mountain, you will be in good hands! EMV was the perfect setting for our perfect day and we could not have been happier with our choice. We loved it, our guests loved it, and our vendors loved it too! We are now members of the wine club and are planning to stay in the Bridal Cottage for our one-year anniversary. Needless to say, we are huge fans of EMV and could not have imagined getting married anywhere else! "
"Early Mountain is just plain BEAUTIFUL! The moment my husband & I walked in we knew it was the venue for us. They provide gorgeous wine barrels, large farm tables, lanterns, ceremony seating, and more! We loved having the fireplaces lit even though it was an early fall wedding, and the great hall has an almost cathedral feel to it. They allowed us to set up our giant Jenga set outside which was a big hit, and they didn't mind our ring bearer being a golden retriever puppy. As far as communications and payment goes, they were easy to work with and very prompt in responses. The cottage you stay in on your wedding night is so cute and cozy, it was all perfect for us. We love Early Mountain and highly recommend it to anyone!"
