Perfect urban RVA wedding!
Linden Row was absolutely amazing from start to finish! Planning a wedding during COVID wasn't exactly fun but Casey, their sales & events director, was so extremely helpful. She kept us up to date on any and all updates regarding guest counts, masks mandates, etc. As a Richmond transplant, I wanted to find a venue that would give a good representation of the city to my traveling guest. The ability for my guest to book rooms and stay at the venue was so convenient and they all loved the charm. The courtyard venue was breath taking and exactly what we were looking for. The entire Linden Row team was so accommodating. We were extremely happy with their food vendor and the overall price tag for rental was fantastic by comparisonSent on 06/07/2021

Amazing intimate and elegant wedding venue!
Linden Row Inn is an AMAZING wedding venue! Everyone in our families said it was the most flawless, unique, and fun wedding they had been to, and that's in huge part due to the awesome tea at Linden Row Inn and their catering team at Groovin' Gourmet (Casey and Michelle in particular, respectively).
The people: Casey was wonderful in helping us navigate all of the changes in Virginia due to COVID so we could have a lovely intimate reception where people felt safe, but we still could have a ton of fun! She has a great eye for floorplans and is great at troubleshooting ay challenges that could come up. Plus she works really closely with the caterer - Groovin' Gourmet - and they are a dynamic due. The staff at the Inn are sweet and kind and great at troubleshooting whatever comes up. All of the staff have worked there for a long time, which speaks to the quality of the hotel. It felt like everyone was invested in making the day a great one - you'll feel the love here!
The space: The garden space + board room is a BEAUTIFUL space and is perfectly set up for a dance floor, buffet/dining room, cocktail hour, and reception space all in the same area (that way you don't have to book multiple spaces!). We had 56 guests and it was perfect, but we easily could have had more and it would not have felt too crowded. We had the tent because it was a little rainy and everyone raved about how perfect it was - clear top so you can still see the trees, little lights to brighten up the space. Plus, the hotel rooms themselves are lovely and comfortable (the beds are the best), and many of the garden rooms have been recently redone. The rooms feel both historical and comfortable - whether you stay in a garden room or splurge for a Parlour Suite.
I was a bride who liked being in the loop on all the details, and Casey and Michelle (with Groovin Gourmet) are real pros who were super patient with all my questions - I could tell they make anything happen, and make it beautiful and in budget. They truly rock. Have your wedding here, and do it brunch style (the cheesy potatoes will blow your mind).Sent on 04/29/2021

Amazing Intimate Wedding Setting!
Linden Row Inn was the perfect place to host our intimate pandemic wedding! Since it took place in January, we opted to bring the celebration indoors and we chose one of the gorgeous first floor suites for our ceremony with a phenomenal sit-down dinner following in their reception hall. Casey was incredible to work with throughout the entire process as rules and regulations changed during COVID lockdowns. She was creative, positive, and incredibly helpful! The entire staff at LR is exceptional and we couldn't have imagined a more gorgeous backdrop for our special day. Our photographer took us out front and around the courtyard and captured some incredible pictures with magnolias, brick, and the historic hotel as a gorgeous backdrop. Linden Row Inn partners with Groov'n Gourmets for catering and they provided a DELICIOUS steak and seafood dinner with scrumptious hors d'oeuvres and a full bar! They provided just as yummy a vegetarian options for one guest and were the nicest to encounter during the reception! I highly, highly recommend getting married at LR. Their courtyard will hold much more people but we are glad we chose the spectacular navy and gold gilded suite with original chandelier, black marble fireplace, and floor to ceiling gold mirrors. You just can't beat that classic, luxurious setting. We woke up the next morning feeling like royalty. We look forward to returning for future anniversaries to remember the happiest New Years ever!Sent on 03/15/2021
Team of Linden Row Inn
Director of Sales
Casey was born and raised in Farmville, VA and joined the Linden Row team in 2014 where she is now the Director of Sales. She began her career in the hospitality industry with her studies at Virginia Tech but her passion for event planning began much sooner than her college years.
Growing up, Casey early on found her passion for event management as she has always enjoyed planning get together’s with friends and family. Event planning taps into her creative side which she finds exciting as that makes each work day unique and different. She was very excited to learn that she could study Event Management in college and she graduated with a business degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management alongside a concentration in Event Management. From there, she went on to work for Carnival Cruise Lines and as an Event Coordinator at a boutique vineyard in North Carolina. Being from just outside the Richmond area she wanted to move closer to home to be near family and jumped on the opportunity to work in a hotel environment while still handling sales, events, meetings and groups.
In her free time, Casey enjoys spending time with her fiance and their 2 rescue animals but one of her greatest passions is traveling. Casey studied abroad in college throughout Europe, has lived in various cities throughout the country on the East and West Coast and in the last few years has traveled throughout Asia to places such as Thailand, Cambodia and most recently Japan.
Her thirst for adventure carries over into her day-to-day work life as she brings a worldy balance to the Linden Row Sales team helping our couples envision the perfect day at a unique old world venue such as Linden Row. Take a step back in time as you walk through our doors and let our team help make your wedding a day you won't forget!
