Outdoor weddings are always fun, and when the venue in question is a winery, the proceedings take on a holiday atmosphere. The landscape is so different that it’s hard not to feel as if you’re far removed from the Washington, DC area!

We’re lucky to have several great wineries in the area at which couples can wed, one of which is the beautiful 8 Chains North Winery. Located in Waterford, VA, the venue has beautiful banquet rooms (one of which has a handsome patio) and, of course, stunning outdoor spaces which afford sweeping views of the vineyards.

Capacity at 8 Chains ranges from 100-120, and they do allow tenting, which enables couples to take advantage of all the natural beauty. When clients choose this venue for their celebration, we always bring our Bose wireless speakers! Not only do they provide powerful sound which will carry even in a wide, open space such as a vineyard, but they also make a minimal visual imprint. A helpful asset indoors and out!
