Market at Grelen Cost + Info (with Photos!) | Virginia Wedding Venue

May 17, 2016

The Market at Grelen feels like it’s one big beautiful farm where you and your family can enjoy each other and your special day. There’s little to no cell phone service which helps keep the attention on the beautiful rolling hills and scenic views. Even in bad weather, their rain options are beautiful with a specialized tent that lets in more natural light than normal tents. Lastly, the sun kisses the entire space at the perfect angles for magical wedding photos of couples from the Washington DC area and Virginia.

About The Market at Grelen

Market at Grelen weddings are special. Located in Somerset, VA on the beautiful 600-acre Grelen nursery, The Market at Grelen is a unique destination that offers a destination wedding feel within a 2 hour drive of Washington DC. It’s perfect for those who want to “getaway” but still have their friends and families at the wedding.

In 1990, Dan Gregg founded Grelen Nursery on a cattle farm owned by his family for three generations. The existing nursery’s local demand grew and eventually in 2003 Gregg purchased a 200-acre farm in Somerset Virginia. Now it is one of the largest tree nurseries in Virginia and caters to clients who “demand, and receive, the highest quality and services”.

  • The Stone Terrace: Surrounded by Blue Ridge mountain views and beautiful trees that change colors with any season. My favorite is doing wedding family formals here.
