James River Cellars is a hidden gem that many do not realize exists. MK is the coordinator their and she is fantastic. When you book with this venue they include so much that others don't at a fraction of the cost (bartender, outside beer, outside catering, tents. nice chairs, access to the who property, wine glasses, etc.) I don't know how this hasn't really been discovered yet. If your looking for an outdoor wedding venue, this is your spot.

This is a beautiful venue and I enjoyed being a bridesmaid in my friends wedding. The grounds were beautiful, the people were friendly, and the evening was perfect. I would highly recommend having an event at James River Cellars.

If you are looking to have a wedding that feels like you are in your own back yard, then this is the place to go. The venue is beautiful, has ample parking and an extremely helpful staff (Brittany, the coordinator) is wonderful. There are a couple of places you can get married and/or have your reception on the property and not feel overwhelmed. They have a stage for the band already in place (which I thought was very good and they have a tent to cover them). Their pricing is also excellent. I would highly recommend James River Cellars Winery for your upcoming wedding.

James River Cellars is an unexpected treat so close to downtown Richmond. The grounds give the feel of an outdoor, private event a million miles away from the city, while being situated just fifteen minutes from downtown. The indoor space is private, well-decorated and perfect for up to 70 guests. The owners, event managers and volunteers make sure that events run smoothly and do everything in their power to make sure clients have an easy experience. This is one of the best bargains within thirty miles for an event venue. In addition to their unbelievable professionalism, they produce fantastic wine!!!
