  • 8 Chains North Winery was the best wedding venue I could have ever asked for. Elly, the events coordinator, was my savior the day of the wedding. She helped make the day about Matt and I, and that was so amazing of her to do. It also didn't hurt that she was always on wine duty :) We had the max amount of guests at the venue, and it was still so spacious and comfortable. If you are debating on going with 8 Chains, I'd definitely recommend it. If you're not getting married, they have an amazing winery and tasting area to enjoy!!

  • 8 Chains is not only an incredibly beautiful venue, but they have an amazing team that is extremely friendly and prepared for anything! Elly is the main point of contact for weddings, and she is extremely attentive and really knows what she's doing. She has recommendations for everything and really wants you to have a very special day. As an added bonus their wine is also really great! We joined their wine club and will continue with it for a long time after the wedding. If we could get married again we would pick this venue every time.

    Thank you Gretchen for such kind words. I am so thrilled you and Frank chose 8 Chains North as your venue for such a special day. Can't wait to see you and catch up on married life!

  • 8 Chains was such a breath of fresh air after touring a few wedding venues. Elly, the winery’s event coordinator, is very personable and made us feel like more than just another couple. The whole process from booking our venue to planning the ceremony specifics was seamless. Elly and the entire staff at 8 Chains did everything in their power to make all of our dreams for our big day come true. They really went above and beyond to accommodate our November wedding date by settling our nerves about the lighting and other options in case of bad weather. The venue is absolutely beautiful, and the wine is fantastic! Our wedding was everything we could ask for and more thanks to 8 Chains Winery North and especially Elly’s support.

    Staci, it was such a pleasure to work with you and Michael. Your wedding was so beautiful. The lighted ceremony under the patio was so magical. Thank you for such kind words. Come by soon for some wine. Cheers!

  • 8 Chains was an absolute perfect wedding venue for us! We were only having 50-60 people so the size was perfect and the reception room is so elegant. Never had a single issue communicating with anyone, Elly responded to all my questions promptly. Our whole day went off without a single issue, not a single complaint from us!

    Gaby, Thank you for such kind words. Everything about you and Ian's day was perfection. It was a true delight working with you and your family throughout the planning, and the day of. I wish you and Ian all the happiness in the world. Cheers!

  • 8 Chains was a phenomenal venue for our October wedding. We had such a great experience from the day that we first visited through our wedding day. Elly (Events Manager) was extremely attentive and responsive throughout the planning process. Our guests had great things to say about Elly and the rest of the 8 Chains staff members that worked our reception. The Furnace Mountain package was a great value. We loved our on-site bride/groom suites (with bubbly service!). The back lawn was a beautiful backdrop for an outdoor ceremony, and we had access to the tasting room and patio for an indoor/outdoor cocktail hour. The reception space was our favorite part of this venue. It was very elegant with the perfect amount of space for our guests. We highly recommend 8 Chains North Winery as a wedding venue!

  • Elly and her team at 8 Chains made our special day into a memorable event. They were able to recommend vendors to make our day seamless as well as worked with our schedules to coordinate days for the various vendors to come out and view the venue. They were accommodating in allowing us to take photos in the barrel room, throughout the vineyard as well as the barn across the street. This was the perfect setting for an intimate ceremony.

    Jarius, It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of you and Eric's special day. It truly was magical. Come in and see us soon! Cheers

  • My husband and I got married in June at this venue and it was perfect!! The venue was beautiful and Elly (their wedding guru) made sure that our special day was absolutely amazing. The weather was horrible but somehow the ceremony ended up being more beautiful than we originally though because of their flexibility and backup plan. Pricing was fair for what you get in the wedding world.

  • We visited many vineyards in search of the best fit for our wedding venue. 8 Chains North Winery felt like home to us from the moment we turned at Daymont Lane, and were greeted with a view of horses and a silo. As my wife, Lisa, grew up in the country and I’m a country girl at heart, we appreciate the peaceful and quiet setting. This winery is elegant though unpretentious. Other vineyards are dog friendly, but 8 Chains North Winery is the only one we’ve found that has a safe, enclosed area for dogs to play. Initially, we wanted our dog to be in our ceremony. Although we decided against including Zeke on our special day, 8 Chains North Winery scored points with us for welcoming and accommodating the needs of dogs. Each return visit to 8 Chains North Winery re-affirmed our decision to get married here! Our wedding at 8 Chains North Winery was a dream come true in every way. Their staff was consistently warm, kind, professional, and 100% attentive to our needs. They took the time... Read more

  • I am so happy I had my wedding at 8 chains north. I've been almost all of the wineries in northern Virginia (what can I say...I love wine) and this place was my first thought when selecting a venue. The outside is beautiful as you would expect with any vineyard. However the inside is beautiful. It is so pretty you don't need to spend much on decor. At the same time it's a beautiful palate to make fit any theme. It can be rustic or romantic or elegant. Unlike other venues I didn't feel trapped by wall colors or the places personal decor. It is also a perfect size for a 50-80 person wedding. It is intimate without feeling stuffy. Also the staff are great. They are helpful and accommodating. I am so glad I had my wedding here. It was a perfect day.

    Hi Megan, Your wedding was just beautiful! It was a joy working with you and Miles to make it a perfect day. I wish you both all the happiness in the world. Cheers!

  • Kim and the 8 Chains North team went above any beyond to make our wedding day exactly what we had hoped. Our Wedding was late September, 2017. We had fallen in love with the venue when we first went in for our tasting in January, trying to make a decision on where we wanted to get married. We had a small, 12 person wedding (including bride & groom). Kim worked with our caterer to suggest a beautiful farm table to rent for our family dinner. We had our ceremony in the lush green vineyard as the sun was setting, followed by light appetizers on the patio under the cutest lights. Dinner was served in the Compass Rose Room which is STUNNING. The bride and groom suites put this place over the top. When my mother and I arrive to get ready, there was a bottle of my favorite wine waiting for us chilled with glasses. The rooms are so feminine and masculine and perfectly appointed. We got some really fantastic pictures. Other wineries we had checked out in the Northern VA area did not have spa... Read more

  • 8 Chains North winery was a fabulous place to host our August 5, 2017 wedding! We worked with Kim Sullivan who was always just an email or phone call away when we needed to discuss anything. She was professional and the 8 Chains North staff that was present on our big day was the same-professional, friendly, and attentive. Not only do you have the beauty of the vineyard (perfect for your photography) the Compass Rose room provides a lovely atmosphere for reception afterwards. There is also the outdoor space that was a huge hit among our guests due to the hot weather. Upstairs there are 2 lovely rooms-one for the brides and bridemaids and one for the groom and groomsmen-in which to get ready before the ceremony. The atmosphere was simply classy and stunning, especially at sunset. The wine, including the sparkling, was a huge hit during our cocktail hour and reception. Kim was conscious of our budget, too, and worked with us since we had a smaller wedding to accommodate our needs. I hig... Read more

  • We held our rehearsal dinner in the Compass Rose room, and it was perfect. The owner even came in to do a special barrel tasting for our guests. Elly was our event coordinator, and she was wonderful. I only decreased the rating because when I initially booked the venue, it took a long time to get a response and contract.

    Lindsay, Your rehearsal dinner was wonderful, the barrel tasting was a hit with your guests. I hope you and Justin are loving married life. Stop in anytime for a tasting. Cheers!

  • My wedding at 8 Chains North went perfectly. The staff through the whole process was attentive and helpful, especially Erin (now a wedding planner) and Sydney--they were more than accommodating with our needs. The space is gorgeous inside and out! I especially appreciated having an indoor/outdoor wedding set-up and the bridal/groom suites upstairs. I would highly, highly recommend this venue!

    Hi Melinda Thank you for you review. It was our pleasure to work with you and Kevin in making your day perfect. All of us at 8 Chains North wish you both all the best. Cheers!
