Why We Like This Place

4 Reasons the historic James Madison’s Montpelier is a perfect Virginia wedding venue:
1. The Temple is a peaceful place to exchange your vows: Designed and built by James Madison himself, this stately columned gazebo enjoys views of the Madison’s beloved mansion and Virginia’s majestic Blue Ridge Mountains.

2. Garden weddings are lovely here: As guests step through the wrought-iron gates of the Annie duPont Formal Garden, they’re greeted by peonies, Japanese irises, and fragrant herbs.

3. Your cocktail hour will be steeped in American history: The “Red Room,” an installation exhibit of Art Deco furnishings and décor, showcases the legacy of Marion du Pont Scott at Montpelier and provides great conversation starters for mingling guests—especially horse lovers!

4. The Grand Salon will elevate your dinner party: This room’s gold-leaf chandelier adds just the right touch of elegance, while floor-to-ceiling windows frame a beautiful mountain vista.
