Couples enjoying a weekend stay can take advantage of the pet-friendly guest cottage, which is immediately welcoming to the couples who inhabit it.

The privately-owned manor home at Leafwood Weddings has a decadent history. It was built in 1781 as part of Clark’s Neck Plantation and has since undergone countless renovations and upgrades and has been featured on the famed Virginia Garden Tour. It wasn’t until very recently, in 2017, that Grady and Angeline Frame became Leafwood's new owners. Being operators of a publishing and advertising business in the wedding industry, the new owners have turned this storied, former plantation home into a venue that is specifically used for wedding event purposes. Tours of the manor are available by appointment only, and all wedding events are private, so you can enjoy a one-of-a-kind, historic celebration at a place that has been around since the 18th century.

A Magical Place, An Absolutely Perfect Wedding Experience
If you are looking for a venue to make your fairytale dream wedding you’ve always wanted come to life, THIS IS IT. This is the only venue my fiancé and I physically visited and we were both blown away by all it had to offer, and instantly knew it was the place for us. There’s so much to work with to turn any area into exactly what you’ve always dreamed of. Angeline and her husband Grady treat you like family and do so many sweet things to help make the process as intimate and as smooth as possible. They shared their home with us and made it so easy for us to make our wedding everything we wanted it to be on our big day. It was truly a perfect wedding and we will forever be grateful for such a beautiful place to have gotten married at and such a loving experience all around. Whether you are near or far, don’t pick your venue until you’ve at least checked out Leafwood! It is truly magical, and you won’t regret it! We will look back at pictures of this amazing day at this utterly amazing place for years and years to come with grateful hearts. Leafwood is a step above the rest in every way. I couldn’t have even dreamed up a more perfect venue!

We highly recommend Historic Leafwood!
I found Historic Leafwood while searching for the perfect venue on various wedding websites, and I knew I was going to be walking into something special before I even toured the site. It was the first and only venue we looked at, because it offered so much and was just what we had been looking for. We met Angeline the day we toured the venue, and she was super helpful during the entire planning process. Angeline was very attentive to e-mails and calls, and I never felt stressed out while planning our wedding. The venue itself is gorgeous! Overall, I can't say enough positive things about this venue and the people who run it. We had an awesome experience and are so grateful for everything they did to make this process easy and fun.
