About Gari Melchers Home & Studio

Charming Historic Museum, Art Galleries, and Studio with Modern Sophistication

Welcome to Gari Melchers Home & Studio at Belmont

Life's biggest moments are worth celebrating. Whether a romantic garden ceremony, lively reception, or the perfect combination of both, your unforgettable dream wedding begins at Gari Melchers Home and Studio.


The stunning venue located in Fredericksburg, Virginia, sits on 27 acres of land situated on a ridge overlooking the Rappahannock River just minutes from downtown Fredericksburg and I-95. The intimate space offers floor to ceiling windows and opens onto a charming garden terrace. The Pavilion adjoins the original 1924 studio and galleries, together producing a seamless blend of historic charm and modern sophistication. Belmont, as the property has been known since the early 19th century, offers an unparalleled backdrop for one-of-a-kind private celebrations.

Wedding Ceremonies

Choose one of our numerous romantic settings for your ceremony. Say "I do" on the main lawn facing the historic home, in front of the stone summer house overlooking the Rappahannock River, or even in front of our renovated barn. Anywhere you choose, Belmont will provide you with a breathtaking backdrop for your ceremony. We can hold up to 150 guests for an outdoor ceremony.

Wedding Receptions

The elegant Pavilion will leave a memorable impression on your guests. With breathtaking views of the garden, Rappahannock River, and historic house, you and your guests will appreciate the rarefied beauty of the setting. The Pavilion can accommodate up to 120 for a seated dinner reception with a dance floor and 150 for a standing/seated celebration.

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.
