Central Virginia – A Wedding Mecca

by staff on August 31, 2011

Charlottesville VA WeddingsRight here in Charlottesville’s own Albemarle County, an estate farm is making news in a much larger way.  Mount Ida Farm has transformed itself into a wedding/event destination and is being promoted by Washington D.C. residents as an exquisite getaway event venue.

Mount Ida Farm consists of over 4,000 acres.  The estate home itself is on the VA State and National Registries of Historic Properties.  It is the only historic home moved in the state of Virginia (piece-by-labeled-piece, from its 1795 home in Buckingham County) which is still on the Virginia registry.   

The setting is grand, many varieties of catering are available, and other services such as a horse-drawn carriage, a lakeside gazebo, and a Rolls Royce are provided for onsite use.   Wedding sites available include the manor home as well as the elegant stable.

There are other large manor homes on the property and Mt. Ida farm can accommodate 65 guests overnight as well as receptions for 200 guests.   It’s no wonder that couples from DC have found this enchanting wedding celebration destination.  Check it out for your other special events too, and keep in mind how beautiful Central VA is during the autumn!    Details are in our link at the top of this page.
