Featuring a serene lake, romantic pavilion, and modern, elegant interior, Chateau Vie is a superb venue for those seeking a sophisticated wedding.

Facilities and Capacity

This expansive property has a range of facilities for couples to hold a classic ceremony and reception. To begin, the happy couple can relax with the wedding party in the Bridal Cottage or Groom’s Den. Each of these spaces offers excellent amenities for their comfort and convenience, including dressing areas, kitchen facilities, and showers. The bridal party can appreciate opulent chandeliers and hardwood floors, while the Groom’s Den features rustic wood paneling, bar stools, and a foosball table. Couples can exchange vows in a romantic courtyard centered around a large handcrafted fountain. Mature magnolia trees create an intimate enclosed setting, while carefully landscaped gardens provide a breathtaking view. The farmyard estate boasts further opportunities for a romantic outdoor wedding, including a fairytale forest venue and a picturesque lakeside area. After the ceremony, the newlyweds can then lead their guests to the pavilion. Designed to host grand celebrations, the space accommodates up to 200 guests with the use of the adjoining lawn. Adorned with multiple chandeliers, the room becomes a truly magical space at night for couples to share their first dance.

Services Offered

Chateau Vie offers all-inclusive packages for couples who decide to have their wedding in the estate. This includes the use of the property from 10am until midnight, event staffing, day-of coordination services, catering, furnishings, and more. The venue allows outside vendors so couples can arrange a musician to play their favorite song or accompany their first dance. Guests can celebrate into the evening while feasting on decadent cuisine, with the option of setting up both DJ and buffet tables. The professional planning staff at the venue can also arrange flowers, music, and a cake to help make building your vision as easy as possible.

The wedding experts at Chateau Vie will assist couples in choosing a menu. Depending on their chosen wedding package, this can include a number of meat choices, appetizers, fresh garden salads, and various beverages.

History

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.

So much to offer!

This venue knocked it our of the park. I got an all inclusive package which took so much off my shoulders and was an amazing value. The owners are responsive and the staff is dedicated, friendly, and hardworking. To the man who drives the golf cart and bartends, my guests thought you were the best! Darlene our wedding coordinator was a dream and a life savor. We had rain but she acted fast and saved my ceremony.

There is plenty of parking, the venue responds quickly to questions, the DJ kept things fun, the whole thing was just perfect. They offer a couple so much with fair pricing.

Beautiful Venue, Great Value!

We are so glad we found Chateau Vie. We wanted a small wedding that would not break the bank, and Chateau Vie was perfect. We chose the Silver all inclusive package, and our vendors were An Event to Remember catering, Artist's Way bakery, Keepsake Bouquets floral, and Amir Luna photography. Tyler and Mary made the planning super easy leading up to the big day, and Darlene was our day-of coordinator. She was great - the rehearsal ceremony went smoothly thanks to her, and then she and the rest of the staff were on top of everything all day Saturday. We didn't have to ask for anything, Darlene had everything taken care of. Overall great experience, and no regrets!

Huge venue with amazing staff.

We got married here on 9/4/21 and booked at the end of October in 2020. Funny enough, when we toured there had just been a storm and the lights were out. We still fell in love with the beautiful property and wonderful staff. Darlene, Tyler, and Mary were always a phone/text/email away. They were always respectful in their communication and truly help your vision come alive. They have packages with amazing vendors (dandelions/KC studio/an event to remember/artists way) that make the day perfect and a breeze. You do not have to worry about the small details as they take care of it all. It’s a big property with multiple places for ceremony, cocktail, and reception to all remain separate. Seriously, go tour this place. You will not regret it!
