Our wedding here on July 26 was a wonderful and beautiful event! Khimaira provides so much decor and atmosphere that it really lessens the load and relieves a ton of worry. Linda was like a second wedding coordinator and is so easy to work with. They really know what they're doing here and will help you with anything you need on your big day. The views are magnificent in every direction and all of our guests took full advantage of exploring the farm, playing the many outdoor games they have, and taking in all that the farm had to offer. Linda's staff was also great when it came to bar and food service. Everyone was so professional and kind and they truly had all bases covered! Literally everything from parking, to childcare, to post wedding cleanup and more was taken care of!

Khimaira is a truly unique and gorgeous venue. We had a wonderful wedding there in July and loved every second. Linda and her team work exceptionally hard to keep the venue looking beautiful - inside and out. Linda is extremely responsive to email and will do whatever she can to help you.

One of the things that makes this venue so wonderful is how the space flows. If you're looking for a venue where some people can enjoy dancing while others sit in rocking chairs outside with a breeze, this is the one. There is so much for guests to explore and do, providing such a great feel for the whole night. The farm tables create a very close and relaxed feeling and make everyone feel like family. We had about 150 people which fit perfectly for the dinner and the dance floor was the perfect size (and was full all night with Josh Nicol as our DJ). Our guests had a blast in the photobooth that Khimaira has built right in the barn!

Because the venue is unique, there is a certain way that the team usually likes to do things. Talk to Linda about what works best in the space. We used a full-service caterer from Richmond which required additional coordination. Linda is knowledgeable and flexible and worked hard to make our vision a reality.

Khimaira Farm is an absolute dream wedding venue and I highly recommend it. My husband and I got married there six months ago and we still hear from guests about how it was one of the most beautiful weddings they've ever been to. Breathtaking grounds include a field with a beautiful backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains, a country-style barn with lovely indoor and patio seating and various gardens adding to the relaxing feel.

Service provided by venue staff was impeccable. We worked primarily with Linda, one of the most helpful, caring, talented and professional event planners I've ever worked with. Her attention to detail, prompt responsiveness and willingness to go above and beyond her responsibilities truly amazed me. I felt like I had a second mother by my side. She remembered small details of our taste and made suggestions to help ensure the vision of our special day was met. She had vendor connections, many of which we also selected. On the big day, everything ran extremely smoothly, as the majority of the vendors were used to working together at the venue.

One of the pieces I valued most is that I didn't have to allocate a lot of time, resources and planning into decorations or setup. I am a planner, crafty and sometimes too detail oriented, and Khimaira greatly surpassed my expectations of providing an already beautiful setup. For extra pieces such as centerpieces, table clothes, cake display, and gift table decorations, Khimaira offered countless options for us to borrow, adding our own flare. The barn had a large flat screen TV to run a photo slideshow throughout the evening.

Khimaira offers add-on options to the affordable contract, lessening planning stress and adding event special touches. Some of our favorite extra services included the photo booth, kids barn with professional child care services, bar tender, a s'mores bar and ice delivery.

Khimaira helped make our wedding day perfect and their team holds a special place in our hearts.

Khimaira Farm is a dream wedding venue, and we were so glad to be able to celebrate our wedding on this adorable goat farm. The views could not be more beautiful - you have a panorama of Shenandoah National Park as the backdrop for your ceremony - and the little gardens and barns around the main reception barn provide peaceful hideaways for photos (or for guests to take a quiet moment). The adorable baby goats and homemade goat cheese are a nice bonus!

Linda and the team immediately treat you like part of the family and provide all sorts of helpful guidance at all stages of your planning. Her regular email updates help you navigate the sometimes overwhelming array of wedding decisions, and her treasure trove of decor pieces save you a lot of money and headaches. Not only are they friendly, environmentally conscious, and very attentive, but they also give you a fantastic price (and encourage you to make vendor decisions - like bringing your own booze - that save you even more money). Because of this, they book up very far in advance, so expect 1.5 years to get a spring Saturday at Khimaira!

If you're looking for the most fabulous wedding venue of all time, STOP LOOKING NOW AND GO VISIT KHIMAIRA.

The best thing about Khimaira is Linda and her family. They are incredibly kind people who are down to earth and genuinely want you to have a beautiful and happy wedding. They do so many weddings at the farm, so they are extremely knowledgeable about everything, but they never make you feel like you are at a wedding factory. Linda responds promptly to all phone calls/emails and is a wedding genius. She is happy to suggest what has worked in the past or let you do things however you want to do them. One of the things I loved most about Linda is that she never assumes anything about the type of wedding you're having, so you know you'll be able to customize your big day however you want, be it formal, laid back, offbeat, casual, rustic! She makes sure that your day really represents you and what you want.

The next best thing about Khimaira is its cost effectiveness. I spent months searching for a venue, and as soon as we got the details from Linda, we realized what a great deal Khimaira is. It is a great price just for a wedding venue, but, and this is the biggie, it's so much more. You can get your table settings from the farm so you don't have to rent them from another place, along with napkins and other serving dishes like cupcake holders. The biggest thing though is the decorations. Khimaira has thousands of decorations you can choose from, and Linda keeps her Pinterest page updated so you can get a feel for the variety they have. I'm talking mason jars (blue, clear, green, twine-wrapped), jelly jars for tea lights, paper lanterns to hang from the ceiling, shepherd's hooks, wine bottles, buckets, little metal lanterns that go over candles, signs, easels, chalkboards. These are things they have collected and things that crafty brides have left behind. Free! You just pick them out.

The view and barn are stunning too. This place is one of a kind!

I am beyond thrilled that we found Khimaira Farm and that we were able to marry there. The venue itself is truly all you could ever ask for. The gorgeous views, indoor/outdoor options in case of rain, and rustic “barn wedding” feel brought us in. Our initial outreach to the farm owners was the beginning of a wonderful relationship with some truly awesome people. When we went to visit, we found the venue of our dreams and were treated like family by the owners of the farm. Linda, the main point of contact, is extraordinarily kind, warm, welcoming, responsive, and works very hard to keep making the venue better and better. Although she has weddings on her property every weekend, she always responded to our emails the same day and treated us like her priority. The venue itself is a dream. In addition to the natural beauty surrounding the property, the family takes great care in maintaining their farm, including many gorgeous gardens. The “party barn,” if you will, is completely gorgeous. It lends itself well to a variety of décor options, encourages guests to mix and mingle, and has a great dance floor that was filled all night at our wedding (thanks to DJ Josh Nichol – definitely go with him for all your sound and DJ needs!). When it comes to all the “stuff” you need to pull off a wedding, particularly an outdoor one, Khimaira has it all. Tables, chairs, and closets – literally, multiple closets – full of decorations that are every Pinterest buff’s dreams come true. All of which is included in the price for the farm; it is certainly “one-stop shopping.” From the littlest kids to my grandmother in her 90s, everyone had a blast at the wedding and the reception. The staff was amazing from start to finish. Just when you think the farm is as good as it gets, Linda has taken someone’s feedback and made it even better – someone liked the porch swing, she made a whole porch full of multiple swings, for example – this is truly a tale of the best just getting better and better.

We worked with Linda and her farm for our wedding and absolutely loved it! They have a gorgeous field and farm that can be used for the ceremony and an incredibly beautiful, completely renovated barn that serves as the reception venue. Linda was incredible to work with and let us visit as much as we wanted before the wedding to plan decorations, etc. They have this HUGE decorations closet full of votives, cake stands, mason jars, linens, paper lanterns, etc - basically anything you could want - that you can use as part of the fee to rent the venue. It was a huge help to our budget to use these items to decorate that past brides had left behind and then we left a few things for future brides to use! You pay a reasonable fee and have the farm for the whole day of your wedding (and the evening before to pull out decorations and also to have your rehearsal). You also bring in all of your vendors so you can make the style, food, etc however you would like / best fits your budget and there's so many options with what you can do and what Linda and her staff can help with. Find out more here: http://www.eventsatthefarm.com/ I would highly recommend this venue to anyone - it was the best decision we made for our wedding!

We absolutely loved this venue, their dedication to making our special day easy, and how helpful they were in planning. Linda and her husband were incredible to work with. We ended up hiring a BBQ company that she recommended and then we asked her to hire wait staff, childcare providers for the kids, and bartenders for the adults. We hired her son-in-law as the DJ and got the local bus company to take our guests. It was so simple and just couldn't have been more perfect. Two recently engaged couples who attended already told us that they'd be trying to recreate much of our ambiance. It was relaxed, yet elegant and everyone from the 2 year olds petting the goat, to the 25 year olds taking shots, to my 88 year old grandparents had a wonderful time. If you want an outdoorsy wedding but the accessibility and ease of being inside - this place is it. I can't say enough about how great it was. Simple. Elegant. Lovely.
