What you will Experience On Sunny Slope Farm!

The calm is transfixing. Crickets echo across slopes of green. The gentle rays of the sun warm the air. A cool, soft breeze billows white fabric and rustles white rose petals. White chairs, white linens, white plates, white flowers… and a white dress, all beckon one of the most meaningful moments in our lives.

It’s wedding day On Sunny Slope Farm.

This idyllic location, nestled in the Shenandoah Valley, oozes beauty, southern comfort and charm. Reclaimed farm antiques, refurbished barn wood and scenic views create the perfect home away from home for a wedding destination. Any family is sure to feel welcome and at ease on the farm. Yet something that sets On Sunny Slope Farm apart is its unique ability to transform its homespun environment to cater any guest. Under a beautiful white tent and dazzling lights, the farm transforms into an enchanting evening of elegance, grace and class.

Established in 1828, the farm is steeped in tradition and making memories. A renovated barn, complete with bride and groom dressing suites and tastefully replete bathrooms, tent and accouterments, pristine and unique views of the Blue Ridge and Appalachians mountains and an eager staff all combine to make the experience  On Sunny Slope Farm one that you’ll never forget. A singular bell stands at the top of the hill, one that has been rung for every major event on the farm for almost two centuries. From births, to marriages, to various celebrations, this bell is a symbol that beckons the whole valley to listen and know that a beautiful and lasting memory is being made on your wedding day.

Guests are arriving, excited tittering ensues, music is playing, the ceremony has begun and everyone witnesses the union of a beautiful couple against the backdrop of rolling green hills. The evening is lively yet relaxing under the tent while speeches are made, food is eaten and dances are completed. Friends relax and challenge each other to a corn hole match while enjoying a beverage. An ever present, yet noiseless staff is always in the backdrop making the experience as comfortable and effortless as possible. A sunset melts into the distant Appalachians Mountains and golden rays disintegrate into a twilight sky of blue. Night wraps its chill around the venue and people gather comfortably around pit fires for more intimate conversations and warm lighting. After an evening of romance, friends, family, beauty, comfort and mirth, the couple is whisked away and the night comes to a close, laughter still ringing through the valley.

This was an evening for which the bell was made over a century ago. This was an enchanting day of celebration and the unification of two lives. This was the experience On Sunny Slope Farm.

Testimonials from recent couples

We had our wedding at On Sunny Slope Farm on a beautiful June weekend and the experience could not have been better. The scenery stole the show and everyone had a simply wonderful time from dancing to corn hole to just taking in the view. Harry and his staff were responsive, accommodating, and professional throughout the whole process from planning to getting hitched, and the value cannot be matched. Ours is a day we’ll treasure forever and we sincerely thank everyone for making it so lovely. We can’t recommend On Sunny Slope highly enough!


We had an amazing time at our wedding On Sunny Slope Farm! We wanted a venue that captured the beauty of the Valley and Sunny Slope really does. Everything from our first tour of the farm to the day of our wedding was fairly simple with Harry & his staff. So much is included and/or available through the venue (tables, chairs, napkins, cups, staff for busing/assisting throughout the night, etc.). We didn’t have to work with rental companies or think about returning napkins the morning after our wedding! We didn’t have to worry about anything throughout the entire weekend – it was all taken care of for us. If we asked, it happened. We also wanted to find a venue that allowed us to bring our own alcohol. Brian, the bartender available through OSSF, was great! He checked in as needed pre-wedding & was helpful throughout the process with our requests & questions. One huge factor was being able to purchase an early decoration package for the day before the wedding. It’s only available if the date is free and we were lucky it was! It relieved a lot of stress – particularly for me, since I was able to help setup and see everything beforehand. The whole vibe of the venue is very laid back – which is what we wanted. It’s a beautiful venue with a peaceful feel and a 360 view of beautiful scenery. I had a few comments of “This is exactly the kind of wedding I want!” which was a nice bonus! :) THANK YOU to all On Sunny Slope Farm for the most amazing wedding day!!


My wedding on Sunny Slope Farm was the most magical day I could have asked for. The venue sits atop a hill that overlooks the valley and the mountains in the distance, so the view is absolutely breathtaking. It made our wedding so unique to be surrounded by pastures and cows and rolling hills. I had a very small wedding, so the main ceremony and reception area were too big for what I needed, but that didn’t stop the staff at Sunny Slope! They helped me brainstorm and plan a beautiful ceremony in the small barn on the property and it was PERFECT. I can’t thank the staff and Harry enough for being so flexible, open, and caring for my ideas of what I wanted. I am forever grateful!


I am so happy my husband and I found On Sunny Slope Farm. Not only is it an absolutely beautiful venue, working with Harry in preparation for our wedding was fantastic! Harry is very kind, knowledgable, and extremely responsive. There was never a time where I waited more than a day to hear back from Harry after sending him an email with questions about our wedding. When you choose Sunny Slope Farm as your venue, you receive two appointments with Harry to make sure your wedding planning is going smoothly (can be done in person or by Skype). We had one of our meetings at the 3 month mark and one at the 1 month mark and they were so helpful and usually put my nerves at ease about the planning process. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. Harry was there first thing in the morning to meet us and already had all the chairs and tables set up. It was raining pretty hard the morning of our wedding and he helped assure us the rain would stop in time for the ceremony, and made sure to wipe down all the seats at the ceremony location so our guests wouldn’t get their clothes wet. Throughout the night, Harry checked in with my husband and I to make sure everything was going great and I am so appreciative of that. We also had Harry officiate our wedding and he did an amazing job. The ceremony felt so special and personal, and working with Harry to prepare for the ceremony was a great experience. I can’t say enough great things about our wedding on Sunny Slope Farm and about Harry. It is a breathtaking venue with wonderful people who work with you throughout the entire wedding planning process.
