On WeddingWire since 2019

The Estate at River Run is a mansion wedding venue located in Maidens, Virginia. 20 minutes West of the Short Pump area of Richmond, the magnificent Georgian Revival manor features luxurious indoor and outdoor event spaces that rival the world’s most extravagant palaces. Each area of the house boasts beautiful architectural elements including columns, molding, sculpted ceilings, and more. Memories made at this venue are sure to be cherished for years to come.

Facilities and Capacity

The estate is nestled among lush forests and overlooks the James River. Guests are sure to be impressed by the manor’s grounds, which are elegantly landscaped to accommodate outdoor events. The Front Lawn offers a beautiful backdrop of the mansion and makes a stunning photoshoot locale. At the back of the house, the terraces are picturesque choices for outdoor events. The Blue Stone Terrace’s regal stone fountain serves as the space’s centerpiece, while the Brick Terrace on the upper level looks out over the area’s forests. Inside, there is an array of stunning function rooms including ballrooms, parlors, and lounges. Many areas can be used for ceremonies and receptions.

The foyer boasts a breathtaking staircase where you can make your grand entrance, or you could opt to descend the Cameo Ballroom’s spiral staircase. The cool blue tones of the ballroom are complemented by warm hardwood floors and a crystal chandelier. The spacious Tuscan Ballroom is ideal for events of up to 270 guests and boasts exposed brick and a large stone hearth. Smaller rooms including the Formal Dining Room, Parlor, and Fox Haven can host intimate gatherings or wedding-related parties.

Fairytale Wedding

From the day we toured the venue, we knew we wanted our wedding at the Estate at River Run. No other venue compares or even comes close. The Estate and grounds are beautiful throughout the entire year and very well kept. Kim and her talented team are also top notch and so very easy to work with. We had both our ceremony and reception here and fully utilized most spaces throughout the venue for our 180+ guests. Our wedding day was nothing short of fairy tale and we can’t thank Kim and her amazing team of vendors for making it the most special day of our lives.

Everything About River Run is Amazing

River Run is an amazing venue, from the moment you pull up the driveway to walking out the back terrace to see the gorgeous view, you can tell this is a stunning location for a wedding or any high-class event.

We've worked at the Estate at River Run many times as part of the vendor team and have always had great experiences with Kim and her assistants. They are excellent at communicating what they need and expect, and are always willing to help to make things as easy as possible for us - knowing how they treat their vendors I can only imagine how they go above and beyond for their clients.

Our team has worked at a ton of venues around Central Virginia, and Kim and the folks at River Run are definitely some of the best in business.

Best weekend of our lives!

My now-husband and I agonized over where to have our wedding. I am so happy we decided on the Estate at River Run. We were incredibly lucky and the weather on our wedding date allowed us to be outside on the upper and bluestone terraces. Our guests kept telling us ours was the most beautiful wedding they'd ever been to. Having the entirety of the house for our guests to explore got rave reviews. And it was very important to us to be able to get ready at the venue itself. The morning of the wedding my bridesmaids and I got ready in the bridal suite, while my husband and his groomsmen took over the pool house. We all had tons of space to spread out, and it made pictures so much easier not needing to transport everyone to the venue once we were ready. We loved being able to stay at the Estate from dawn til dusk! The venue staff were wonderful to work with as well. We so appreciated their flexibility over the course of the weekend. We also chose to have our rehearsal dinner at the Estate the night before our wedding. Again, our guests loved it. We had such a beautiful dinner outside by the pool. We couldn't be happier with how the entire weekend went, and are so happy we chose the Estate at River Run as our wedding venue.
