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!

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!

Khimaira Farm was the perfect venue for our June 29, 2013 wedding! From the beautiful scenery to the rustic feel of the barn, everything was wonderful!! Linda and her family are amazing and so passionate about what they do; they're friendly, welcoming, helpful, and accommodating. Everything went so smoothly and I highly recommend checking out the farm if you're looking for an outdoor wedding in the Shenandoah valley!

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.

Khimaira Farm was the perfect venue for our wedding. It is set against the Blue Ridge Mountains and is absolutely breathtaking. The barn that houses the reception location is so charming and 100% customizable. Khimaira provides plenty of different decorations for you to choose from. They also provide tables and chairs, which is a HUGE plus in terms of the value. We heard from multiple people that our wedding was the most fun wedding they had ever been to and I think a big part of that had to do with the venue.

Khimaira Farm was a stunning venue for our ceremony and reception. The views are jaw-dropping in every direction. The outdoor ceremony in their field was unforgettable... I looked around several times during the ceremony to soak in the view and the sound of dragonflies buzzing around.

Linda and Leith put a lot of love and care into the gardens surrounding the barn that has been converted into a gorgeous, open-air reception space. They are committed to sustainability, composting all the food waste, saving decorations from previous weddings for use by future couples, and providing place settings and barware at an affordable price to discourage throwaway paper/plastic goods. The price of the venue, which is super reasonable, includes many extras (like tables/chairs, linens, dance floor, etc.) that are all detailed on the Farm's website. Our guests really loved the outdoor deck, the swing seats, the garden, and just the general rustic homey atmosphere. The inside of the barn is gorgeous with draped white fabric from the rafters and little white twinkle lights. Simple, elegant, and lovely.

Linda worked with me and my husband to accommodate all of our requests, though sometimes she took a while to respond. The only moderate-sized glitch I encountered is that the tables used for dinner are a mixture of shapes and sizes, which makes assigning tables very tricky. We didn't get the list of table shapes and sizes until a few days before the ceremony, and had to rush to do assignments at the last minute. When we arrived for the rehearsal, we had to make some reconfigurations on the fly. Everything else was fantastic, and Linda is just about one of the nicest people I've ever met. This venue is very DIY, with lots of help from Linda, which allowed me to craft exactly the wedding I wanted, with the vendors I wanted, and within my budget. I spent just a couple hundred dollars on flowers and added decorations as the decorations from past weddings combined with the natural beauty of the setting made other adornments pretty unnecessary.

Highly recommended for a unique and memorable wedding!
