Belle Garden Estate

Wedding at Belle Garden Estate

The Belle Garden Estate in Wirtz Virginia is an amazing, historical, and vintage charmed venue to host your intimate wedding. Belle Garden Estate is the perfect spot for any special occasion; its 1771 colonial manor is steeped in history, and the small cottage is perfect for an intimate gathering. Ceremonies can be held under the lush arbor, and reception parties can enjoy the outdoor pavilion. The manor also includes a luxurious bridal suite and a groomsmen lounge; amidst the 10 acres of landscaping, a bold creek, and the majestic mountain views, it’s truly a dreamlike setting.

On a rainy September day, Sham + Linsay took on a story forecast and had their wedding day with dark clouds and chilly air. Starting off the day with hair/makeup and getting ready shots, Linsay and Sham shared a special first look with each other with no one else watching. A perfect way to start the day. Soon after we got their wedding party and family photos captured. As guests were arriving the clouds came close and closer. The rumbles started to get louder and the wind picked up speed. Before anyone could walk out, the rain came down. Guests hurried to the pavilion where they waited patiently, had a few cocktails, played some music and met up with family and friends of the couple. I took this extra down time to run to the state house and capture some images with everyone inside, including grandma.

About an hour into the rain, it abruptly stopped. The couples was dead set on having an outdoor wedding so they didn’t mind the wait at all. Then, it all began and the day was a complete success.
