Walden Hall, a wedding venue located in Reva, Virginia, offers a literary-inspired space for couples to exchange their vows. Named after Henry David Thoreau’s famous Walden, this farmland property allows couples and their guests to slip away to the serene Virginia countryside. Here at this farm, couples will be surrounded by 10 acres. Even though the setting is quite private, you will be able to easily access downtown Charlottesville, Culpepper, Madison, and Washington D.C.

Can’t even begin to describe how absolutely perfect our wedding weekend was at Walden Hall. The staff go above and beyond at every turn and are an absolute dream to work with. Everything we requested in terms of layout and set-up was completely different from how they’ve ever done it before and not only did they pull it off perfectly, they did it with a smile and made us feel like everything we could imagine could be made possible. When we started our wedding venue search we saw at least a dozen places. None of them felt right. The second we stepped foot at Walden Hall we knew we found our wedding venue. The property is magical in every way - the outside is breathtaking and the level of thought that went into every detail of the house is out of this world. Everyone who stayed at the house for the weekend and all of our wedding guests commented on how incredible the space was - “like a postcard” so many people said. What they didn’t know (but what we did) is how special the staff is too. Leading up to the wedding they were so responsive and communicative and once the weekend got there they went out of their way to make us feel at home and put our minds at ease about the big day. They were like magicians working behind the scenes to make everything run perfectly without ever even being seen. It was unbelievable. If you are planning on getting married anywhere in the northern/central VA area, don’t look anywhere else. Imagine your dream wedding and then have it here - I promise it will be even better than you could dream it to be!Sent on 10/09/2018

Relaxing and fun!
We loved our wedding at Walden Hall! We selected the venue because of the entire weekend rental period. Instead of running around all weekend, everything was on site and simple. This took a lot of stress off of us, our families, and the bridal party.Sent on 06/20/2019
The owners, Dave and Julie, are kind hearted and hard-working. They helped us throughout the weekend.
If you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy yourselves throughout your wedding weekend, this is your place.

Hydrangea Blue Bridal Shower
Walden Hall was the best choice I could make with where to host my bridal shower! They hosted us in their Innkeeper's Suite which included a beautiful wood pallet wall, wood bar, full kitchen, and full bathroom. The team was phenomenal as they accommodated my matron of honor and bridesmaids with any needs they had. All around a beautiful space and wonderful accommodation for my bridal shower!Sent on 03/28/2019

Walden Hall has fantastic accommodations, breathtaking landscaping and amenities, and a wonderful and attentive staff. This property gets a big thumbs up from our team!
Walden Hall is an intensely beautiful venue in Culpeper, Va. If you're looking for effortless elegance for your wedding day, Walden Hall is the location for you. They can take care of absolutely everything for you, or they can just let you have the space! And speaking of the space, the inside of the B&B is unlike any I've ever seen. It has an open, airy feel, and is decorated and set up perfectly for a wedding. The 18th century poet rooms are STUNNING, and the outdoor views are equally as beautiful. The owners are super down to earth and easy to work with. This venue gets a super two thumbs up! We cannot wait to work with them more in the future.
Walden Hall is an incredible B&B with the most amazing views and amenities! The venue is absolutely PERFECT for weddings or for a romantic weekend away.
