    Pharsalia is truly one of the most beautiful places in Virginia! We had such a gorgeous wedding ceremony and reception, all our guests are still talking about how beautiful it was. Foxie was very nice, easy to work with, and very accommodating. We would definitely recommend this place to everyone!

    What a lovely venue for a wedding! Beautiful, beautiful mountains for a backdrop. Lovely gardens and a plantation home that takes you back in time. Foxie Morgan, mistress of the "Plantation home" is a gardener extraordinaire. She will make sure that you have plenty of flowers for your wedding bouquet AND she will make her industrial kitchen available for your caterer. I officiated at a wedding at Pharsalia and I can tell you that Foxie and her staff believe in Southern Hospitality. Check it out.
