Keely & Travis
Blue Indoor Winter Wedding
Have you always dreamed of a wedding around the holidays? Inspired by green Christmas trees and beautiful glowy lights? Jack Frost may nip your nose outside but the fire is so delightful as the backdrop to your I Do's! Keely & Travis knew Stevenson Ridge was the perfect place to host their romantic winter themed wedding. Snowflakes were the accent of choice on the cake and as ornament favors for their guests. Plus a few handmade elements featuring fresh greens!
Amelia & Garth
Fall Burgundy Reception
Amelia's supreme trust in her vendors allowed them to create amazing things for her wedding that she was only dreaming about! Amanda Veronee created a stunning arrangement over the head table and it was one of the most gorgeous things I’ve ever seen. You will definitely think more about your reception space flowers when you see these! Plus the most exsquite 6 tier gold accented cake by BonnBoni. It was a work of art!
Jessica & Sean
Romantic Summer Wedding
Jessica was excited for the ceremony and celebration formalizing their relationship surrounded by everyone they loved! Sean was most excited to finally call her his wife! Stevenson Ridge was the perfect backdrop to make all their wedding plans come to life. Romantic touches abounded with lace details, gorgeous rose petals and flowers galore. They chose August as it marked their two year anniversary and felt it fitting to seal the deal!
Jodi & Michael
Fall Navy Indoor Wedding
Choosing the right venue was important to Jodi & Micheal, they wanted something slightly rustic and close to home. When they found Stevenson Ridge they knew it was the perfect place and also had an amazing staff who catered to their needs and were willing to work with them every step of the way! Planning an October wedding they really wanted to have the fall foliage as their backdrop but mother Nature wasn’t quite ready to unleash all her colors. We did manage to find one beautiful yellow tree and it worked perfectly to give them those golden fall colors to their photos!
Samantha & Dustin
Pink Summer Indoor Wedding
When planning her summer indoor Stevenson Ridge wedding Samantha was inspired by tradition. She wanted “the simple elegance of weddings from years ago, something that in 100 years would still be looked at as classy”. Stevenson Ridge was the perfect mix of historical and modern, with the ceremony taking place in the reclaimed 19th century chapel with it’s exposed post and beam frame and 25′ cathedral ceilings. Samantha made her entrance on the arm of her dad through 10′ antique doors once owned by Ulysses S. Grant. Her florist amanda veronee (also the bride’s sister and MOH) created a gorgeous floral backdrop to say their vows against and filled the room with hundreds of candles for a warm and soft romantic glow.
Stevenson Ridge Wedding
I have been photographing Virginia weddings at Stevenson Ridge since they first opened several years ago. I even remember walking through The Lodge before the flooring had been laid :). I have photographed ceremonies on the lawn, receptions in The Lodge and full weddings with getting ready at The Riddick House.
So whether you are looking for a spot for just your ceremony or just your reception or you want the full Stevenson Ridge wedding experience the beautiful grounds and historic buildings provide the perfect backdrop for your wedding festivities!
I have picked out a few wedding galleries from over the last 4 years to show you the variety of options Stevenson Ridge provides to brides and grooms. You can see what the grounds look like through the seasons and see what an indoor wedding looks like in their backup space in case of rain. No worries it is gorgeous!!!
Stevenson Ridge features several options for getting ready before the big day, as you look through the weddings below you can see the different spaces to help make the choice easy for your wedding day!
My favorite is for the girls to get ready at The Riddick House, I love the beautiful decorating of that gorgeous historic home! Plus portraits out front always look classic and beautiful. So take a look through these beautiful weddings and get to know more about having a Stevenson Ridge Wedding!
