Glen Allen, VA
The Estate at River Run offers countless wedding ceremony and reception sites for the most important moments of your life. Whether we host your wedding ceremony and reception or wedding reception only, it is our goal to assist you. We help create the most memorable experience of your life, do it at our stunning Estate. Most weddings at River Run range from $40,000-120,000. Clients should expect to pay $14,000-32,000 in catering fees with one of our fantastic preferred caterers when selecting a full Saturday venue rental.
Off season or weekday rentals have many other options that will lower rates.
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.
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.
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.
The perfect year-round indoor location in which you can tie the knot is the Wedgwood 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
moments. The spiral staircase is perfect for a grand entrance! The width of the raised panel
double doors are ideal for your side-by-side bridal party entrances and exits. The ballroom
boasts a fireplace with marble surround, beautiful hardwood floors edged with black marble, and
a custom-designed larger than life crystal chandelier that invites you to share one of life’s most
precious moments with your family and friends.
The Cameo Ballroom is perfect for indoor ceremonies for under 95 guests and has fabulous daylight for daytime events! Architecturally, the three doorways across the back of this space create a fabulous indoor-outdoor transition.
Brick walls and stone fireplaces encompass this warm and comfortable space. It is the perfect
location for a very large dinner [seats up to 270] for your celebration or corporate event. A
large, built-in wooden bar is perfect for service from multiple sides. On a chilly winter day, a
crackling fire will create an ambiance for your guests. The architectural beams overhead helps this
room feel like Tuscany. An arched doorway, heavy metal chandeliers, and a wine cellar make
this an incredible space for dining with your guests!
The views from the windows in this suite are absolutely spectacular
and the panorama from the soaking tub is second to none. Bring a book to enjoy while relaxing
your cares away! Dual restrooms accompany this beautiful bedroom and make it the perfect
space for bridal parties to get ready. The intricate plasterwork on the ceiling is opulent and
architecturally stunning. The steam shower, tub, stand up shower, extensive closest, vanity, bidets, and separate
restrooms allow you to feel like royalty!
The Tennis Court is an expansive piece of land with a beautiful view of the Pool House and the James River. The covered viewing shed is the perfect location for the bar service for your evening or a lounge for your guests to enjoy while they watch your dance moves! You may even choose to host your ceremony under a tent here as a covered outdoor ceremony option.
