Weddings In the Grove

Richard Bland College is the perfect venue for a wedding. Home to 750 picturesque acres, the College offers multiple sites on campus to host the bride and groom’s special day.

The first site is the vast grove of pecan trees. RBC is home to the oldest and largest pecan grove in Virginia that provides the ideal space for everything from pictures to the ceremony. Not far from the record-setting grove is a refreshing water garden. This Asian water garden boasts a magical setting adorned with beautiful seasonal flowers, pristine landscaping, and bridges that provide a spectacular aesthetic to accommodate vari­ous wedding entrances and ceremonies.

The College also features a beautiful gazebo that is situated on ample grounds necessary for seating, receptions, photos, and more. In addition to its beauty, an 1800’s Farmhouse with an overlooking porch frames the gazebo.

Lastly, the College’s showcase building, The Barn Theater, has a rustic, warm, and overall cozy feel. It provides all the amenities needed to host a reception. The inside features beautiful chandelier lighting and generous seating arrangements, and a spacious outside parking lot can accommodate guests as well. The Barn Theater also features a newly renovated bridal suite to prepare for the special day.

The Barn can comfortably accommodate 120 seated guests.
