Front Lawn

Our front lawn is symmetrically appealing with its beautiful architectural backdrop. From the driveway, the lush grass and the petite boxwoods line the site and help frame the front of the phenomenal estate.  Picture yourself coming down the circular driveway to make a grand entrance or out the front door using the sidewalk as the path to your ceremony.  

Blue Stone Terrace


The original fountain is the center of many paths that cross on the Blue Stone Terrace. The
fountain is hugged by the curved brick staircase and custom forged iron railing. The sheer scale
of the Estate is evident on this lower terrace. Encompassed by miniature boxwoods,
ornamental grasses, and plantings, this space is the perfect mix of manmade and natural
environments. The blue-stone is clean, orderly, and continuous throughout the terrace, and the
sidewalks surrounding the space.

Brick Terrace

Indoor Ceremony Locations

Architecturally this space is a crescendo of beauty. The oversized two-story columns, the hand
placed bricks, arched windows, ornate dental molding, circular brick inlays in the terrace floor,
continuous limestone balustrade, ornate custom metal railings, and the most incredible view
in the Richmond area make this the perfect space for any occasion.


Pool Side


This area is absolutely magical – the waterside experience overlooking the James River is
second to none. The trees, sky, and natural surroundings are spectacular. Imagine your guests
enjoying the view and the music of a violin by the pool during your ceremony.

Marble Foyer with Gallery Overlook


Featuring a “Casino Rose” marble tile floor; a pair of curved stairways rise from either
side of the marble foyer and lead to the ornately detailed balcony with the Loft Gallery. A
pair of Waterford-styled chandeliers with antique Straus crystals, columns with 23-carat
gold leaf Corinthian capitals, block egg-and-dart crown molding supported by additional
members, a dramatic double-door entry into the Parlor with raised panel wall panels and
arched doorways to the kitchen are the outstanding features of this heart of the Estate.

Wedgewood Ballroom


The perfect year-round indoor location in which you can tie the knot is the Wedgewood  Ballroom.
This two-story ballroom has a grandeur like no other. The ornate plaster ceiling is offset by the
palate of “river” blues and contrasting white accents. The second story gallery overlook is the
perfect space from which your musicians can play, and photographers can capture your special
