Venue Feature: The Estate At River Run
As a wedding photographer located on the border of the two Virginia’s but travelling all over, we have seen a lot of stunning venues. But The Estate at River Run has to be moved to the top of the list for high end Virginia wedding venues. As soon as you pull into the driveway, you know you are entering somewhere spectacular and then you see the elegant 22,000 square foot mansion overlooking the James River and located between Richmond and Charlottesville, Virginia.
After you enter the door of the estate, you are welcome with the grand staircase that is absolutely stunning. Perfect to wow your guests, and absolutely stunning for bridal portraits!
The Estate at River Run includes amenities such as luxe overnight lodging, a stunning terrace, a pool house, the Wedgewood Ballroom, and intricate architectural elements. It also has so many gorgeous windows that lets in plenty of beautiful natural light for the most beautiful photos for your wedding experience!
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 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.”
As you can see, The Estate at River Run is the perfect choice for your Virginia wedding, and it makes having gorgeous photos of your day so easy!!
