Built in the late 1940s, this scenic farmyard estate was originally maintained to produce tobacco. The property was initially a 200-acre estate owned by the Marshall family. It remained in the family for over fifty years, eventually being repurposed as a wedding venue after its purchase in 2018.

The absolute best place to get married. The owners, Mary and Tyler, made planning a wedding easy and stress free. They work with you every step of the way and make your day perfect. The staff is amazing and always go above and beyond to make your day exactly how you envision it.

Beautiful venue, great packages!
Chateau Vie was the perfect wedding venue! Tyler & Mary are so sweet and fun to work with. Their experience in planning weddings is so helpful. I love how much they include with their packages. They are there every step of the way. I loved having our coordinator, Blair, there to keep us on track. The venue has so many beautiful areas to use for a ceremony. We booked the venue hoping for the lakeside area to be ready, and it was everything I wanted!!! I definitely recommend this venue and booking an all inclusive package. It helps out so much.Sent on 10/31/2019

Out of all the venues I have viewed this venue had the best customer service out of all. I was welcomed there from the beginning. The man who was working with us defiantly helped us with our budget and he made us feel right at home. He didn’t rush us in anyway. He’s just an amazing person to work with. I am so nervous about my wedding day and he makes everything so much better. Other venues made me feel not welcomed and rushed.Sent on 07/04/2019
