Sierra Vista

Bedford, VA
Verified Venue

A Natural Sanctuary

Soaring high on a hill surrounded by a stunning 313 acres, Sierra Vista is the only Virginia wedding venue with an unobstructed 30-mile panoramic view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Sky-reaching pines, rolling green fields and never-ending peaks set the wild scene while upscale amenities and elegant venues add ease and serenity to your wedding day.

A brick wedding aisle leads from the lovely patio on the elaborate cabin's back lawn, landing at the perfect ceremony perch point. Pine trees frame the special ceremony site and a grand panoramic countryside vista invites awe. Couples enjoy use of outdoor whiskey barrels, a wide cedar pergola and a wooden cross for ceremony use.

The architecturally stunning, climate controlled handcrafted sanctuary barn is made of pine and western red cedar and houses gorgeous receptions under soaring cathedral ceilings, large oil rubbed bronze chandeliers, 22 ceiling fans and working cupolas. Dance on the barn's beautiful acid stained flooring and spill out the rolling front and rear doors for an open-air celebration. Caterers love the onsite prep area and amenities include tables and chairs, 10 whiskey barrels, 2 wooden doors, apple crates and lanterns as well as bistro lighting.

All inclusive full amenity packages are available and couples enjoy full access to the Lodge Home, Bridal Suite, Groom’s Cabin and Reception Barn.
