I haven’t quite had a chance to post a blog yet about The Estate at River Run, but I wanted to share images of this incredible new Richmond, Virginia area wedding venue. The Estate at River Run truly has it all for luxury weddings. If you are looking for a fine art wedding option, this is it!

The Estate at River Run

As The Estate at River Run states on its website, “The Estate at River Run offers a myriad of wedding ceremony and reception sites for the most important moments of your life. Alongside overnight lodging options, the private estate creates an intimate and authentic environment for weddings of every size. Whether we host your wedding ceremony and reception or reception only, it is our goal to assist you in creating the most memorable experience for you and your guests.”

The front lawn of The Estate at River Run is the perfect backdrop for a luxury wedding experience.

“Our front lawn is inviting and charming, featuring exquisite new lampposts, the intricately (and recently) redone stone fountain, and the mansion as a grandiose-architectural backdrop. The scale and symmetry of this space, as well as the relaxing ambiance of the fountain, greet guests as they approach The Estate. In the daylight, the lush grass and carefully fashioned boxwoods create a formidable frame for the lavish estate. In the evenings, the lawn lights up in an astonishing display of light, courtesy of the oak trees’ up-lighting system, that ensures the property remains just as established and dignified no matter what time of the day.” – The Estate at River Run

The terrace spaces all boast beautiful views, some with the James River as a backdrop.

“Many paths cross at the Bluestone Terrace. The curved brick staircase with a custom-forged iron railing makes for a grand entrance unlike any other, and the sheer scale of the Estate is exceptionally on the lower terrace. Encompassed by sculpted boxwoods, white river rock, ornamental grasses, and landscape lighting, this space is a flawless marriage of man-made and natural environments. The bluestone is clean and continuous throughout the terrace; as well as the adjacent sidewalks. From both terraces, one is treated to equally enchanting views of the James River that provoke unmatched feelings of privacy and tranquility.” – The Estate at River Run

The Wedgewood Ballroom is one of my favorite rooms, with bright and high ceilings and a gorgeous spiral staircase.

“This two-story ballroom, named after fine European China, has a certain air of charm and grandeur that is sure to translate to any occasion. There are countless features to catch one’s eye, from the ornate ceiling, offset by the palate of “river” blues and contrasting neutral accents, to the handmade spiral staircase, which is perfect for a grand entrance. The magnificent fireplace is framed by marble once owned by English royalty and the larger-than-life crystal chandelier suspended above the room was custom-designed for the property, directly contrasting the beautiful monochromatic ceiling. With breathtaking floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the James River, the Wedgewood Ballroom invites you to share one of life’s most precious moments with a backdrop almost as spectacular as the cause for the celebration itself: true love” – The Estate at River Run
