"Having our wedding at the Bull Run Winery was a great decision! The grounds are beautiful and the tasting room is perfect for a wedding reception. What I loved about it (besides the wine which is probably my favorite VA wine) is you do not need a lot of extra decor. Because they have twinkle lights and display cases with Civil War stuff, it has more visual interest than your average venue."
"We felt like VIP's from our first visit to the last second of the reception! We absolutely love TWABR's wine! Throughout the planning process Amanda was extremely responsive to any of my (numerous) questions and concerns. On the day of the wedding I was absolutely amazed by the attentiveness of all the winery staff and how smoothly everything went. I highly recommend this venue!"
"Words cannot express how amazing this place is to have your wedding!!!! From initial site visit to the actual day, Amanda and crew are there every step of the way to make sure you have the day of your dreams. Amanda is prompt when responding to any question you ask. Having Amanda as your day of wedding planner is awesome. She handles everything from vendors to placement of centerpieces to helping your guests. My husband and I cannot say enough nice things about our experience here and highly recommend it!!!"
"Immediately upon touring The Winery at Bull Run, my husband and I knew it was the place for us. The staff is wonderful and friendly, the venue is gorgeous, and the wine is top notch. We got so many compliments about how great the wedding was largely due to the staff at Bull Run. Amanda was so great to work with -- very helpful and understanding and she puts you at ease during wedding planning. It is the best feeling knowing that you are well taken care of during such an important time. I can't say enough good things about our experience, definitely book your wedding here for the best day of your life!"
