Nestled in Fredericksburg, Virginia, Belle’s Pleasure is a wedding venue with a country and vintage feel. The property is dotted with historic buildings from multiple centuries as well as forests and meadows. An enchanting ambiance treads throughout the farm, which is located near both the District of Columbia and Richmond. Family-owned, it offers an idyllic backdrop for whimsical weddings.

Facilities and Capacity

The venue features a luxurious dressing room for you and your wedding party to get ready in. Originally the carriage house, it boasts two floors and numerous amenities to make preparing for your wedding day both comfortable and convenient. Dark wood flooring and white walls with ornate furnishings offer an additional touch of sophistication to the space. For your ceremony, you can move out to the lawn framed by trees. After, while your guests enjoy cocktail hour, take your wedding photos by the water or row a canoe out on the pond for magical photographs. Come time for the reception, dine and dance in the classic barn. The tall ceilings bring a sense of wonder and the natural grain of the wood in this building makes the space inviting.

Services Offered

Infuse the wedding decor with antique charm. The owner of Belle’s Pleasure has a passion for historical objects, from plates and glassware to furniture and decorative items. You may request to use any of these items for your wedding. For example, chalkboard signs can greet your guests as they enter the venue while flowers elegantly drape rustic whiskey barrels. Set the space with the help of their staff and use the location's tables and chairs as well as lighting and sound equipment to get the venue wedding-ready.

History

Belle’s Pleasure has a long and rich history with stories echoing throughout the property. The farmhouse that stands proudly on the 15-acre plot was originally constructed in 1769. As for the barn, it was built in the 1920s. For over two centuries families have lived, worked, and loved here, imbuing the venue with a sense of romance.

    Amazing to work with Beautiful Venue

    Emily was phenomenal, we had to move our date from October to March because of covid, and she was SO supportive and flexible. I can’t say enough good things about this venue. So grateful we found Belles Pleasure, it’s a beautiful magical place, that will hold a special place in our hearts forever.

    Best Venue Ever!

    Picking this venue was the best and easiest decision when planning our wedding. Everything fell into place so easily because of the owner, Emily, who is a godsend! Her and her husband-Adam, have worked so hard to make this place a dream!

    This venue is absolutely stunning! It literally has everything you could need- the gorgeous barn, the pond, the AMAZING bridal suite, silo bar, etc! There are so many options when determining the layout of your wedding here. Our wedding was October 10, 2020. We chose to have our ceremony outdoors by the pond, cocktail hour by the silo bar/barn which included photo booth, gift table, high tables, with additional seating, and reception in a tent. It was perfect! I loved literally everything about this venue and cannot begin to express how thankful I am to Emily and Adam for allowing us to have our wedding at Belle's Pleasure.
    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
    Savannah & Brian!
