If you are looking for a venue that can accommodate a large guest count, that is not a hotel ballroom, you should check out Castle Hill. This venue is located just a short distance outside of Charlottesville.
The venue can accommodate a maximum of 350 guests and has multiple locations for ceremony. Castle Hill Cider offers two types of event spaces, both indoor and outdoor. Couples who are looking for an indoor space may choose between the Cider Barn and the Loft. The Barn has great big doors that can open to showcase the outdoors even if you are in a climate controlled space. If you opt for the loft, there is also a large barn door that can open to the outdoor letting in great natural light and fresh air. Those interested in an outdoor space may choose between Linden Grove, The Orchard, The Lawns and The Lake. They are all great options and can accommodate a whole variety of setups.
In the barn is a large stage perfect for live bands or DJs. They will allow you to decorate and drape the ceilings. Being as they are a working cider you will also have the option to server cider as a fun feature to your wedding. I was pregnant when we did our tour so I wasn’t able to taste any, but Brett ended up buying several bottles. I’m sure they were so good.
They were bottling cider when we were walking through so Brett wasn’t able to get too many photos of the event space. They do have a pretty good gallery on their site though.
Thank you so much to our photographer friend, Brett Denfeld Photography, for taking these photos.

As always, I would love to chat.
