My husband and I had a great experience with Early Mountain Vineyards. We did not have a wedding planner and they were such a help with organizing our event. Because of inclement weather, we had to move the ceremony indoors, but it looked lovely and no one could tell it was a last minute change. We worked primarily with Nicolette and she is so organized, calming and informative!

EM is simply beautiful. All the guests enjoyed the view. Nicolette, Maggie & co were very helpful and responsive. We don't have any complaints. We'll definitely be back at EM just to escape from the city. Oh the bridal cottage is wonderful, fully furnished and convenient for a bride and her train.

There's so many great things to say about Early Mountain Vineyard! Our wedding day was like a fairy tale, it had the most beautiful view and atmosphere. Everything from the Great Lawn, Patio, Event Hall, Lounge and Bridal Cottage was absolutely gorgeous. The people there are amazing to work with. They were all super friendly and very accommodating which made our wedding planning experience memorable. We recommend Early Mountain Vineyard to anyone in search of a venue! If we had to do it over again, Early Mountain Vineyard would still be our number one choice.

Anyone looking to get married at a vineyard in the Charlottesville area should SERIOUSLY consider Early Mountain Vineyards as the perfect setting for their wedding weekend. While it’s not as centrally located as some other options, it provides a more unique, picturesque setting that you will fall in love with immediately - it is worth the couple miles of driving, and there are countless bed and breakfasts in the vicinity for your guests to make a complete weekend out of your wedding. If the beautiful setting were not enough to convince you, the wedding staff (in particular Nicolette) is extremely helpful and responsive with everything from recommendations, logistics, ideas, and anything else you might have questions about. If we could give six stars on service, quality, and value, we would - the staff, setting, and everything “extra” that you get is that amazing and takes additional work off your plate. Early Mountain Vineyards is worth every penny.

Our recommendation: Go to Early Mountain Vineyards as your first stop, sit down, do a wine tasting, and cancel all the rest of your appointments - nothing else will come close. If you’re getting married in the Charlottesville area, you’re not going to find a more beautiful setting, more helpful staff, or get as many additional time, hassle, and cost saving things (like patio furniture, tables, indoor and outdoor chairs and cushions, and let’s not forget the beautiful, cozy guest cottage for the night of the wedding) than at Early Mountain Vineyards.

A hundred and one thank you's for providing such a wonderful and gorgeous venue for our wedding and for your absolute professionalism in supporting us throughout the weekend. The staff at Early Mountain made things so easy for us as far as bringing materials in the day before the wedding and storing our alcohol through the next morning, and also with the tastings and various venue visits over the last year. Most of all, you were extremely pleasant to work with, which made all the difference for our experience. I remember thinking how there is something about the staff at EMV–relaxed, elegant, sophisticated but also sweet and gracious. Thanks Nicolette and Maggie for helping us with logistics throughout the last year, and thank you Delores and Maggie for keeping me (the bride) company in the wings before I was allowed to go out into the reception room and ride on the tandem bicycle into the ceremony :) You helped calm my nerves and were so sweet!!

It goes without saying that the venue is breathtakingly gorgeous, so calming and the blue skies are immense – it’s impossible not to feel instantly relaxed when you arrive on the grounds of the vineyards. In fact, that was the first thing I noticed on my first visit, the amazing hush when I stepped out of my car. Because of the views, mountains and skies, it’s impossible NOT to take a gorgeous photo. Looking back, picking our venue was one of the easiest decisions for us during our planning, and we never once looked back. The fact that the contract included the ceremony/reception chairs/tables was also very convenient, and don’t get me started on the Bridal Cottage :) When I brought my bridesmaids and mom there, it was perfect for us to sit around being girly for a day, feeling relaxed before the ceremony and taking lovely photos with our photographer.

Thanks again and we most certainly will expect to visit EMV as customers for years down the road, so we hope to see you again soon.

Early Mountain was my DREAM venue. As soon as I walked into the reception hall and saw the views outside I knew it was the one. Nicolette and Maggie (event coordinators on site) were always professional and so helpful before, during and after our wedding. There are not enough kind words for them! If you're looking for a beautifully romantic venue with a touch of rustic elegance, this is the one for you.

We are so happy we chose Early Mountain as venue. The event staff was always responsive to my emails and questions.

We got ready in the cottage, next to the vineyards. This was a great place for the bridesmaids to get ready and relax, have hair/makeup done, have lunch etc. The cottage has 3 bathrooms, plenty of room. We had hair and makeup done in the front room, which had a lot of natural light. It was a perfect setting for getting ready! We did "first look" picture outside of the cottage – the scenery was perfect. The groomsmens have a designated place to get ready in and hang out with couches and a big TV.

We got married on the lawn and it was perfect - the mountains in the background was a great backdrop. We didn't need many decorations for the ceremony to look great because of the great view and scenery. They had plenty of chairs tables, wine barrels, so we didn't need to worry about renting anything except for an archway. We had our cocktail hour on the patio, which was very convenient because it is steps away from the ceremony. They also have an elevator if anyone needs to use it, which is helpful for any handicapped guests.

They also have a great rain backup plan. We didn't need to use it, but it was nice to know we had a backup in case of rain. If it rained the ceremony would have been in the reception area and the cocktail hour in the long hallway. The reception area is so beautiful; it would still have been a great ceremony.
The reception hall looked beautiful! We didn't need a lot to make the room look amazing. Early Mountain does not have a caterer, so we chose our own. This was also helpful because we could set our own budget and not need to meet at high minimum for food. Everything fit into the reception area perfectly, the food stations, bar, dance floor, cake table, etc.

We also used their firepit to have smores, which was so fun! We had a great day, and we were so happy with Early Mountain Vineyards! We can't wait to go back!

We were looking for vineyards for our wedding and have stopped at numerous locations in Leesburg and Charlottesville. Stepping into Early Mountain's reception area really draws out your breath. It's a gorgeous location with mountains in the background, an outdoor ceremony lawn area that was just redone with fresh greenery and flowers. The bar room is fully furnished with modern furniture and sculptures that it doesn't even need decorating for a wedding. It's beautiful just the way it is which is convenient for weddings. I love the little add-ons that come to renting the venue--there's a groom's ready room at the bottom floor with comfy couches and a nice television screen. A good space for prepping. The bride gets her own special cottage just off the beaten path from the vineyard. The cottage really is a small little house (furnished beautifully as well!) with a kitchen, 3 bathrooms, sleeping room, and ready room.

The staff is great! They make the process so easy and with a wedding--it helps to have a team that is well-organized, has good communication, and know how to plan that perfect day for you. That's why they are there--they just want you to be happy and they go out of their way to do it. They are professionals and the wedding folder that they provide you lists their favorite vendors--vendors that they trust will do the same top-level performance. I love their flexibility. We had a bit of an issue for our favors at the last minute and asked Delores if we could order 125 bottles of wine as our wedding favor at the last minute and she had no problem. She said you can tell me down to the last hour and it would be fine.

Early Mountain is spot on with their services. I couldn't have imagined a more beautiful location or greater staff to work with for our wedding day. Choosing Early Mountain was one of the easiest choices I made for our special day. I will definitely recommend this venue to everyone I know!
