VA - Shadow Mountain Escape - Interior roses and champagne

Hold an intimate ceremony at Shadow Mountain Escape, then stay for a romantic honeymoon. 

Lately, more couples have been choosing to have smaller, more intimate ceremonies rather than big bashes.

While the trend may have started out of necessity during times of social distancing, it’s stuck around because it offers a much more romantic experience and a deeper connection with the surrounding environment.

And that’s exactly the kind of ceremony that Shadow Mountain Escape caters to.

Shadow Mountain Escape in Luray, Virginia, offers Old World charm.

Nestled beside the ever-scenic Shenandoah National Park with a backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Shadow Mountain Escape incorporates timeless elegance with rustic charm, drawing architectural inspiration from European, medieval, and Mediterranean structures.

The quaint and unique venue aims to help couples to find contentment and celebrate the next big step in their lives in a way that reflects their individuality.

Wedding parties have access to the entire 15-acre property, including the four timber-frame cabins, half-mile nature walk, observation and gothic towers, scenic pond and stream, and an on-site wedding officiant. 

Shadow Mountain Escape’s location is just as tempting as its amenities, too.

Before you say your vows and dance the night away, you can hit one of Shenandoah’s trails just minutes away, explore Luray Caverns, or check out the many distilleries, breweries, vineyards, and restaurants along the Blue Ridge Whisky-Wine Loop

Best of all, there’s no wrong time to book your big day at Shadow Mountain Escape.

Not only is the venue open year-round, but the Blue Ridge Mountains are breathtaking no matter what season it is—from vibrant green hills to auburn ridges to snowy landscapes. 

Everything You Need, Nothing You Don’t

As every married couple will tell you, wedding planning is simultaneously exciting and stressful, even for small ceremonies.

Luckily, Shadow Mountain Escape takes away all the hard work with its two wedding packages.

Minimal planning and coordination mean you’ll have more time to enjoy the day and focus on what’s important. 

The Elopement Package is the ideal choice for couples with a guest list of two and a budget saved for the honeymoon.

With this deal, you have access to just about any spot on the property for the ceremony, a one-hour photo session with a USB deliverable, a small red-velvet wedding cake, and the opportunity to use the on-site wedding officiant.

On arrival, you’re greeted with a dozen red roses and fine chocolates, and you get to take home two Shadow Mountain Escape champagne glasses following a Prosecco toast—all for under $500.

There’s also the option to add a two-night stay in the cabins and/or an engagement photo shoot.

On top of everything the Elopement Package includes, you’ll also receive a candlelight dinner, a two-night stay in the cabins for all of your guests, access to the “party room,” seasonal decorations, and a bottle of wine for every couple who attends. Book this all-inclusion experience for $7,500.
