Available for events year-round, Burlington Plantation is an elegant wedding venue located in Charles City, Virginia. First built in 1818 as a classic planter’s home, the property has been beautifully restored in a way that both supports modern styles and highlights the historic structure. Guests will love sipping cocktails and socializing in the converted Ice House bar, originally used to keep food fresh and drinks cold in the 1700s. The indoor wedding space in the Stables boasts beautiful exposed wooden beams and custom chandeliers, while the pristine gardens and lawn offer scenic views for an outdoor ceremony.
Facilities and Capacity
The venue offers couples exclusive use of the property for their ceremony and reception. Two outdoor ceremony sites are available, as well as an expansive indoor ceremony and/or reception space. Both the indoor and outdoor spaces can accommodate up to 300 seated guests. A Bridal Cottage and Groom’s Den are also offered to the wedding party so they can get ready and relax before the ceremony. An additional space is the Ice House bar which can be open during cocktail hour. Guests have access to the venue’s on-site parking, which also includes a golf-cart shuttle. The venue is handicap accessible.
Burlington Plantation offers couples the use of parking attendants for the event, as well as assistance for set up and break down. Throughout the celebration, on-site staff will be available to oversee the venue and to provide any additional help. Chairs and tables are kept on-site and can be used for events, as well as three vintage-style mobile bars and two white mobile bars which provide a more elegant look.. With management approval, couples can invite their own outside vendors for catering, beverage services, decorating, event coordination, and other wedding needs.
Burlington gives the option for the bride and her bridal party to stay overnight in the Bridal Cottage the night before and/or after the event. The Bridal Cottage sleeps up to 7 guests, offers a full kitchen, a salon, and three full bathroms. The Main House sleeps up to four guests but is only available for overnight guests when Burlington is rented for the full weekend. The Main House is not intended for general wedding use.

My husband and I got married here on 6/29/2019. When I attended a wedding here the previous year, it was love at first site! The venue is amazing, and the owners and wedding coordinators are wonderful to work with. They also use "All Seated" which makes designing and table placement/assignments a breeze.Sent on 08/22/2019
The have a bridal cottage on site that is big enough for all of your bridesmaids! 5 of my bridesmaids stayed the night and woke up with me on my wedding day. The cottage has a full kitchen, with separate make-up room suite, and bridal suite on the first floor. The top floor is an open room with multiple day beds and it's own full bathroom.
On the grounds, they have the Burlington Ice House which is where we served beer and wine during our cocktail hour. The stables is beautiful with plenty of room tables, dance floor, band, photo booth, etc and also includes a spectacular staircase in which the parents and party walked down during the grand entrance. There is also an antique bar which is where our beer and wine was served during the reception. A grooms apartment is located a top portion of the stables which includes a full kitchen, bathroom, living area and bedroom with a day bed. It has plenty of space for all groomsmen to get ready the day of.
There are also multiple different locations for you to have your ceremony whether you wanted a large wedding in front of the field (when I got married corn was growing), an intimate ceremony under the pergola with chandelier, or a nice inside wedding in front of the grand staircase.
I would highly recommend this venue!
