About Gari Melchers Home & Studio

A charming historic venue overlooking the Rappahannock River

Welcome to Gari Melchers Home & Studio at Belmont

Located in Fredericksburg, Virginia which is between Washington D.C. and Richmond, Virginia. Belmont was the home of Gari Melchers, a successful American Impressionist painter. The property includes his original stone studio which now houses the largest collection of his paintings and drawings, beautiful restored gardens, and the stunning Studio Pavilion. Your guests are sure to fall in love with the historic charm of Belmont as they stroll through the elegant gardens and grounds. Our brides love having the option of opening up the Studio Galleries during cocktail hour so guests can fully experience Belmont.

Wedding Ceremonies

Your beautiful wedding ceremony will take place in our formal garden where you'll say "I do" in front of the quaint summer house overlooking the Rappahannock River. Are you interested in having a "first look?" Our Studio Galleries are one of many perfect places to capture this intimate moment. Our lovely grounds make the most exquisite setting for your special day. Garden ceremonies can accommodate up to 150.

Wedding Receptions

Receptions are held inside the stone Studio Pavilion which is just steps away from the ceremony location. Enjoy having your cocktail hour and bar on the terrace so guests can enjoy the romantic woodland setting. The Pavilion comfortably accommodates up to 120 guests for a seated dinner with dancing.

Superlatives don't cut it. The simple truth is we had our dream wedding at Gari Melcher's Belmont. The venue, the staff, the atmosphere, the support throughout the entire journey ... all exceeded our wildest expectations. The grounds speak for themselves; history, beauty, tranquility. The pavilion is classy, comfortable, and transitions from formality to straight up fun without skipping a beat. Let's face it ... weddings are beautiful. When fortune smiles, though, and you get to have yours at a place like this, well, that's pure magic.
