About

On WeddingWire since 2019

Common House is a sought-after wedding destination in Richmond, Virginia. Timeless yet modern, our premiere venue, Union Hall, accommodates parties from 20 to 150 and boasts high ceilings, an open layout, and in-house furnishings that are perfect for full wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners of all sizes, bridal showers, welcome parties, post-reception brunches and so much more! On-site ceremonies of up to 140 can also be held in the outdoor Courtyard or second-floor Madison Wing.

Historic design elements are blended with uniquely Richmond touches to make each wedding a one-of-a-kind celebration. With both indoor and outdoor settings, guests can move from one area to the next and enjoy a different atmosphere: a dance party outside, a cocktail within. Special add-ons include a private bridal dressing room off-street parking solutions in downtown RVA, and a kid-friendly film for younger attendees in our screening room.

We provide in-house specialty furniture, audio/visual equipment, customizable menus, Sommelier curated wines, full bar services, and a professional waitstaff. Grounded in quality and service, the essence of Common House is brought to every event, tailored to meet individual needs and visions.

Love working with Shelby

Through the construction and pandemic, Shelby has been so great to work with. She helped us during our walk through of the building (still under construction) to imagine everything, telling us ideas of where things go, what she thought and providing our floor plan already - SO EXCITED to continue to work with the Common House-Richmond and Shelby!

April 2023 Wedding

My husband and I wanted a welcoming and unique wedding venue that was not a traditional ballroom and that had style/personality. We were feeling like giving up on wedding venue searching until we finally came across Common House in Richmond. From initial touring, to tastings, and the big day, Liz and the Common House team hit it out of the park. Their customer service is top notch and everyone we encountered throughout the wedding process was helpful and welcoming. A huge benefit of Common House is the beautiful interior spaces. We had rain so we used them thoroughly. The food and drink was incredible and we got many compliments from guests. Their wedding package allowed us to get so much from just one vendor point of contact (a big perk!). Thanks so much for a great day and one of our favorite new memories

5 Stars for Service & Quality

Worked with Liz Arline for over a year during the planning process and she was incredibly responsive and helpful throughout. We also loved all of the staff that we worked with during the tasting and the day of the ceremony and reception. The quality of the food, cake, bar service, and staff support exceeded our expectations and we got a lot of compliments from friends and family about the food especially. It's such a unique venue and near nice hotels which allow many guests to avoid worrying about additional transportation.

We also loved the photos we got around the venue. The library, the restaurant, courtyard, and rooftop all make for fantastic photos and the venue was so flexible with us using any of those spaces to take pictures.

My only regret with this venue is the size of our guest list. We ended up having 135 attendees and it felt REALLY tight. During the ceremony, the front row was about 2-3 feet from the altar so it was impossible to get any photos of us at the altar without getting guests in the pictures. My family was seated on the left side (behind bride) and they said they couldn't see my face at all because of how closely they were seated to the front left. Dinner was another tight scene and we had a few guests complain about how little space they had.

Definitely still a 5 star review overall. They will not disappoint on being accommodating and providing everything you need across food, alcohol, cake, and service. Thank you for an amazing day!!
