Are you looking for a WV wedding that will showcase the rolling landscape of the mountain state? Set your big day in Southern WV.
Planning starts with a destination! There are plenty of places to have a wedding overlooking the state’s famous scenery.
Here are a few locations for a breathtaking wedding:
1. Glade Springs Resort
With 4,000+ sprawling acres of beauty, Glade Springs Resort has several locales to choose from for every piece of the wedding, from rehearsal dinner through honeymoon suite. They can cover everything from catering down to table decor details. There’s also an on-site spa to pamper pre-vows, and activities and accommodations to suit all your guests. They also offer a carriage to escort you.
2. Daniel Vineyards
With options to accommodate up to 400 guests, Daniel Vineyards has a charming winery, gazebo, deck and pavilion to choose from. You can choose a locale to overlook the blueberry patch, or the lush, green vineyard. For additional ease, you can also use the kitchen, and electrical connections are available outdoors. And, of course, you can hire a vineyard bartender to serve up authentic mountain flavor from Daniel’s.
2.The Foxwood Inn
Rent out an entire old-fashioned luxury home aside a quaint pond, and say your vows on the open veranda. The Foxwood estate features two homes perfect for outdoor occasions: the Foxwood and the Mullberry. The first has a wrap-around deck and a separated 2-room upstairs suite, and waterfall view from the veranda. The yard of the second 8-bedroom home has ample space for the elegant wedding tent and a bonfire afterward, too. Its veranda has a mountain view, and its kitchen is fully stocked for you and your guests.
4. Smokey’s on the Gorge
With a gorgeous wooden deck perched right on the rim of the New River Gorge, you can say your I do’s overlooking the deep canyon of the New River. It’s also one of the best views of the iconic steel-arch bridge. Smokey’s is a gourmet restaurant, and their chefs would be more than happy to cater to your dining needs.
5. Winterplace Ski Resort
With room for more than 500, the Winterplace Mountain House’s stone fireplace keeps it cozy even during the snowy season (though you can enjoy it year-round.) You’ll get the full panoramic view of the mountain slopes that surround the lodge.
