Hermitage Hill: Farm Weddings with a Twist

Rustic, farm weddings have been all the rage for the past couple years. How has this trend lasted so long?

Most fads come and go but farm weddings are a trend that seems to be sticking around quite well! No two farm weddings are the same, some farms offer different amenities to couples Let’s take a look at why our farm weddings are so unique and worthwhile!

Farm weddings are interactive
Here at Hermitage, the fact that we are a horse farm is what makes us unique. Farm weddings can become very interactive in a safe, refined setting. At Hermitage, not only do we have air conditioning, multiple event spaces, and other amenities but we give brides and grooms the option to host a “carrot cocktail hour”. This signature cocktail hour allows guests to greet our horses in the barn while enjoying an adult beverage. Our Carrot Cocktail Hour has even been featured in Virginia Living Magazine. We have our event assistants caring for the horses in case anything goes astray and they guide guests to the bowl of freshly chopped carrots to feed the horses. By providing an interactive option to guests, Hermitage Hill weddings become more memorable, fun for guests!

The views are incredible
Not only do guests like interacting with the animals, but the views at Hermitage are absolutely breathtaking. Nestled in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley and at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, prospective brides and grooms couldn’t ask for prettier mountain views. As far as destination weddings go, you just can’t top crisp mountain air and gorgeous sunsets over the rolling hills in Waynesboro, Virginia.

At Hermitage, couples get the farm feel (the views and animals) but also much-needed amenities such as indoor restroom facilities and air conditioning. Nothing is worse than a summer wedding in mid-August with no air conditioning and outdoor porta potties. Our indoor facilities are connected to our barn in order to bridge the gap between farm life and comfort. We like to ensure that every wedding party and their guests are comfortable on the big day by providing the necessary amenities to keep everyone happy, even on a hot summer’s day!
