From rustic elegance to classic galas, find your perfect wedding venue in Almost Heaven!

Rustic outdoor charm

Planning a wedding? Consider the mountains of Southern West Virginia as the perfect backdrop for your ceremony and reception. From radiant sunsets at rustic outdoor venues to historic galas, Mercer County has a lot to offer a bride and groom and their wedding party!  

A stained glass window, a rustic porch and an eye-catching chandelier adds just enough glam to a rustic barn made out of wood and metal on the outskirts of Princeton. The Barn on Unity Farm is an all-inclusive wedding venue in Mercer County.  On 100 lush acres, the property has large open fields, Brush Creek, (a tributary of the Bluestone River), Little Laurel Creek, photo-worthy trees and spectacular sunsets.  

Little Acre Farm is another all -inclusive Appalachia rustic venue with outdoor ceremony space next to a pond. The barn, just in case of rain, can hold up to 200 guests and a wedding party of 28. Little Acres Farm features four acres of insta-worthy wedding shots for you and your guests!  Located between Princeton and Athens, this venue is close to restaurants and lodging properties.

Elegant wedding galas

Step back in time at the Bluefield Arts Center for your perfect wedding. This theater-style venue is the perfect place for glitz and glamour with its high- ceilings, open space and historical background. Built in 1924 as the Bluefield Municipal Building, this venue has seen major changes throughout the years. Today, it is now home to weddings, celebrations, the arts and more.

The Chuck Mathena Center is state-of the-art theater that rents the entire facility for parties up to 1,000 guests. Say your “I do’s” on the stage or dance the night away with a reception at the Grand Hall. The Grand Hall has four chandeliers, a glass wall and high ceilings. The Grand Hall can accommodate 300 guests to help celebrate the night.
