Wedding Venues We Love!

Over the last 15 years, we have loved photographing weddings at Stonewall Resort, nestled in the beautiful mountains and hills of Roanoke, WV. Tim Ray Photography has photographed over thirty weddings at the resort in all the different wedding locations and seasons. From Summer to Spring with it’s lush landscape, to winter with it’s snow covered views, there is no shortage of amazing backdrops for artistic wedding photography.

Stonewall Resort is a lakeside resort in a peaceful serene setting set on 1,900 acres.  It encapsulates everything beautiful about West Virginia – the forest, lake, deer, wild life, serenity, and nature all mixed with elegance. It is located equidistant between Washington DC and New York City, making it an excellent reprieve from big city life, and a calm getaway for your wedding and guests.

The Great Lodge Room

One of the many locations for weddings is the Great Lodge room of the resort as photographed below. It is perfect for larger weddings. Surrounded by picture windows overlooking a turquoise winding lake and mountain side, the views can be seen during the wedding ceremony from the Lodge Room. In addition, vaulted cedar ceilings and a large stone fireplace create a comfortable ambiance to any wedding day.

In addition to the large lodge room, Lightburn’s restaurant, located on a hill sitting above the lodge, is surrounded by pristine views of the golf course, lodge, lake and surrounding mountains. It is elegantly nestled amidst the golf course above the lodge.
