crooked river wedding & event venue

hiltons, virginia

The Crooked River Wedding and Event Venue nestled in the hills of Hiltons Virginia. Surrounded by mountains, this 200+ acre estate is a picturesque setting to experience your special day. The power and magnetism of the river delight the eye and pull you in while the forest and glades make the outside world fall away. The heart of Crooked River is the circa-1823 Ohio Grist Mill that serves as the reception location. 12 x 12 oak beams and majestic lighting create a rustic yet elegant ambiance. An 1899 renovated tobacco barn provides the bridal party a place to relax and prepare for their wedding.
