    A Perfect Day at a Magical Venue

    Oh man, what a day we had! Our wedding at The Estate at River Run was an absolute dream come true. We had fallen in love with this place after a visit only a few months before and completely changed our plans so we could have our wedding here.

    We opted to have both the ceremony and reception here as it gave us the chance to fully utilize the venue. From our ceremony in the ballroom with its gorgeous high ceilings and dramatic windows, we took our guests downstairs to the banquet hall where we danced the night away! There, we dined at the massive hearth, danced under the chandelier, escaped to the wine cellar for goofy photos, and stepped out onto the back patio to catch our breath and enjoy the breathtaking view of the river and countryside at sunset.

    We were treated so well. Kim is so patient and easy to work with, guiding our very inexperienced steps through the often hectic world of wedding planning. She gave us so much and ensured we had the best time on the best day of our lives.

    We cannot thank everyone at River Run enough. Our wedding was perfect, and I hope others can experience even a fraction of our happiness there too!

    The Estate at River Run's reply:

    Awe - Alex - it was a dream to have River Run full of guests and watching everyone enjoy themselves so much in celebration of your nuptials. Thank you for bringing your Michigan family here to taste a little bit of the fact that "Virginia is for Lovers!" Cheers to all the leap year anniversaries your life has to offer!! -k

    The Perfect Wedding Venue

    My husband and I chose the Estate at River Run for our wedding venue the first day we visited. You can try to look at pictures but it won't capture the true beauty of the property and the feeling you get when you arrive. Kim, the owner, greeted us with a smile and treated us with a constant open door policy any time we had a question or needed to stop by prior to the wedding. Our wedding day was absolutely incredible and our guests loved the ability to sip a cocktail on the terrace, dance in the ballroom or have a quiet conversation in one of the many ornate rooms. Kim and the Estate at River Run management team went above and beyond to ensure our vendor team had what they needed and that our day went smoothly. We cannot thank you enough for helping us create a memory we will never forget.

    The Estate at River Run's reply:

    Katherine - you are so kind! Your communication skills are amazing and it was an absolute pleasure to work with you through the entire process. Your attention to detail was so appreciated, and we will not forget how beautiful everything was. You two are the CUTEST couple and it's been so fun getting to know you and see your sweet smile around here. We will miss you all and are SO happy for your next adventure as newlyweds!
