One of the best weekends of our lives. Used this beautiful venue for rehearsal, bridal party sleepover, and wedding ceremony and reception. Wonderful on site catering and Tammy, the Events coordinator took care of everything and I mean EVERYTHING on Wedding day. She made it possible for us to be in the moment the whole time and took care of every tiny detail. This is a beautiful venue and the staff is exceptional. Price is very inclusive and worth every penny.Sent on 06/05/2018

One of the most spectacular places for a wedding event is at Belle Grove Plantation, King George, VA. . Located in a rural, beautiful, waterfront setting, it lends itself to unparalleled photo opportunities. The house itself, is a piece of historic wonders, having been established in 1670 and housing famous Americans, including president James Madison. Elegance and charm abounds at every turn. Owners, Michelle & Brett, are emotionally entwined in the plantation and their love of Belle Grove shines in every corner. Their event coordinator, Tammy attends to each & every detail throughout the entire booking and wedding process. Brides of Belle Grove showcases the beauty caught in film for searching brides to see all of the yummy details. I love going to Belle Grove to drop off wedding cakes. ...my reception always involves a friendly hug. Belle Grove in all of its grandeur has regular people waiting to welcome you with down to earth personalities and a deep desire to please. You will not be disappointed here!!
