About Gari Melchers Home & Studio
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.
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.
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.
