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.
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.
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.
