"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."
"It was such a joyous day for us and we absolutely adored the venue and the TLC that we received from The Winery from the moment we signed the agreement, until we left the site after our celebration. We just can't say enough about how amazing things were."
-Korie and Todd, Bride & Groom
"We can not thank The Bull Run Winery enough for making our wedding (during COVID mind you) beautiful, safe, intimate...absolutely perfect! Paria, our day of coordinator, was simply a joy to work with. She even found chocolates for my 3 yo niece (flower girl) who was having a rough time before the ceremony. She truly cared that our day was perfect. The decorations and staff were top notch...not that Bull Run Winery needs any help...the views are breathtaking!!... If you want a great day where you will worry about nothing but marrying your best friend...this is your place!"
"Look no further, book this venue now. This venue was incredible. They were responsive, honest, and made me feel like my wedding was the most important wedding they've done there. We chose to get married on the Hillwood Ruins, however, unfortunately the weather refused to cooperate and a thunderstorm blew threw approximately 30 minutes before our ceremony, forcing us to move everything indoors... but Bull Run staff were able to flip the entire outdoor ceremony into an indoor ceremony in a matter of minutes, and not one guest had any question about where to go or what to do. We had over 100 people at our wedding, and EVERY. SINGLE. GUEST. was not only impressed with the venue itself, but also with the quick thinking staff, and their professionalism... We are still receiving messages from our guests about how beautiful the venue was, and how they loved every minute of it... I can't recommend this venue enough."
