Weddings

Life’s biggest moments are worth celebrating. Whether a romantic garden ceremony, lively reception, or the perfect combination of both, your unforgettable dream wedding begins and Gari Melchers Home and Studio.

Ceremonies

 

Choose one of our numerous romantic settings for your ceremony. Say “I Do” on the main lawn facing the historic home, in front of the stone summer house overlooking the Rappahannock River, or even in front of our renovated barn. Anywhere you choose, Belmont will provide you with a breathtaking backdrop for your ceremony.

In case of weather, Belmont has an indoor backup plan in the event that your ceremony cannot be held outside. The wedding can be moved into the Pavilion, even if you are having your reception there. In that case, your guests will sit at their reception tables and watch you say “I do” on the dance floor. If you plan to only have your ceremony at Belmont, chairs will be set up auditorium style inside. Your decision can be delayed until minutes before your wedding begins in hopes of the sky clearing just in time before you walk down the aisle.

Receptions

 

The elegant pavilion will leave a memorable impression on your guests. With breathtaking views of the garden, Rappahanock River, and historic house – you and your guests will appreciate the rarefied beauty of the setting. The Pavilion can accommodate up to 120 for a seated dinner reception with a dance floor. If you’re interested in a standing/seated reception with a dance floor we can accommodate up to 150.
