About

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.

    Amazing experience with Liz and Common House staff!

    I can't say enough great things about having my wedding at Common House. Working with Liz Arline made this such a seamless experience. She was super responsive, helpful, comforting, and just a really awesome person. Her perspective and attitude is exactly what you need when planning a wedding. Our wedding weekend ended up being the weekend of Hurricane Ian and Liz came to me with plan A, B, C and D. Common House is great because there are options for any and all types of weather. No matter where you choose to have a ceremony or reception, your pictures will be stunning because of how beautiful the venue is. The food is also top notch. Loved being able to do a tasting beforehand. I received so many compliments on what we served for appetizers and dinner, as well as the wait staff. We went for the family style option and it was so fun. If you're looking for a unique, picturesque venue with delicious food and incredible service, Common House is your place! My husband and I loved our experience here.

    Amazing, beautiful venue!

    We chose Common House Richmond for our wedding because of its beautiful atmosphere, accommodating staff, and delicious food. The space is flexible, and the staff are willing to do what it takes to help you create your special day. We loved that we could have amazing canapes, served food, and our cake all made by the Common House staff.
