Breath taking scenery
We have been looking for a venue for over a year, we even considered destination and when we saw Celebrations it was like being away from Richmond... it didn’t feel like we were in VA. The scenery is absolutely breath taking and there are so many different aspect to the property that choosing the right venue out of the three is hard.. they are all unique in their own way. Overall compared to other venues the price is within any couples budget.Sent on 10/24/2019

The must have venue
Booking with this venue is really saved my wedding day. Not only is the staff so incredibly kind and helpful, they make sure the day is everything you want. Once booking with the venue we were paired up with the venue's wedding planner and day of coordinators. The value alone in that is beyond what we imagined. A few weeks before my wedding the pandemic happened. If it weren't for the venue staff I would've lost my mind, they were amazing at making sure everything that needed to be changed happened. Also, when we were finally able to have our wedding day my husband and I felt like their goal was to make it everything we had dreamt of despite the world falling apart. I was the most stress free because I knew the staff cared for my event. I had several guests come and tell us they wish they had gotten married there.Sent on 07/28/2020
It may seem a little bit pricey compared to some other venues, but you get SO MUCH more then just a place to get married.
Celebrations at the Reservoir's reply:Thankyou Jocelyn for your kind words- Congratulations to you and Jameson as you begin your life together. Thank you for the honor of being the Venue that you chose to host your Special Day.

Our experience with Celebrations was beyond amazing! The team is wonderful to work with, made everything so very easy. The vendors we chose were from an open house Celebrations invited us too and that was perfect. The vendors know Celebrations and have lots of experience there which again made things flow easily. It was the most beautiful, intimate, and the most fun I have ever had at a wedding reception! Thank you so very much!!Sent on 07/29/2020
This venue offers the below options which may impact pricing:
Celebrations is a fantastic venue from a photography perspective. The grounds are breathtaking and the staff is great to work with. Brides can't go wrong with any of three three locations on the grounds for a wedding celebration.
