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 Bridal Suite

Seated at the pinnacle of luxury and convenience, our Bridal suite ensures you feel like royalty while you prepare for your special day. With two elegant full bathrooms and spectacular river views from every window, this space is perfect for you and your closest friends to prepare for your special day and sip mimosas. The two full bathrooms completely alleviates the panic of getting ready on the morning-of usually incites, with plenty of space for showering, storing clothes, styling hair, and applying makeup.  


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.

Front Lawn

Our front lawn is inviting and charming, featuring exquisite new lamposts, 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.

Wedgewood Ballroom

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.

Cameo Ballroom

The Cameo Ballroom is the perfect spot for indoor events that seek to kindle a sense of intimacy and warmth and has a fabulous natural daylight for daytime celebrations! Architecturally, the three double doorways across the back of this space create an effortless indoor-outdoor transition to the terrace, and the natural color palette is preferred by planners as it creates an elegant, understated backdrop for small events, or a beautiful pass through during an indoor/outdoor event.

Tuscan Ballroom

Travel down to the ground floor of the estate and become enveloped by the warmth and comfort of the Tuscan Ballroom's brick walls and stone fireplaces. It is the perfect location for a grand dinner for your wedding or special event. A generous, well lit built in wooden bar allows for service from multiple sides, ensuring that every guest at your event feels welcome and attended to. The cozy wine cellar helps this room feel like you have been transported to Tuscany. The room is skirted by four large individual restrooms, and the virgin heart pine floors make it the perfect location for dancing the night away.


This area is absolutely magical- the waterside experience parallel to the James River is second to none. The trees, sky, and natural surroundings, are spectacular. This spot also makes for a perfect cocktail hour location with 30 chairs, 5 large tables, a restroom, and a bar just inside the marble, Jeffersonian pool-house.
