The Kiss

Happily ever after in Virginia.

It’s no secret that Virginia is for lovers, so it stands to reason that Virginia is a fine place to host a wedding.

Wedding venues in Virginia are as diverse and wonderful as the state itself. Whether you dream of a beach wedding or a mountain wedding, a rural wedding or an urban wedding, a grand, upscale wedding or an intimate, casual wedding, your dream can be realized here.

The Virginia Wine Country has many idyllic settings in which to host a wedding. There are well over one hundred wineries in fifteen Virginia Wine Regions – deciding between them will be the biggest problem.

If you dream of hosting your wedding at a grand historic property, you’ll find many wedding venues in Virginia. The Old Rose Garden at Ben Lomond Historic Site in Manassas is a lovely setting for an outdoor wedding. The Boyd Tavern, a national historic landmark near South Boston, is another charming location for a wedding reception.

There are also unique and unforgettable wedding venues in Virgina. Consider a ceremony in the Endless Caverns of Shenandoah Valley. Avid hikers may want to say their vows on the Appalachian Trail. It’s your wedding – you get to decide.
