The grand entrance, lined by trees, reveals the elegant Southern manor. Adorned in classic white with black shutters, the estate’s friendliest feature is the front porch, welcoming with joy.
Inside, a private bridal suite awaits, thoughtfully decorated and flooded with natural light. It is literally a photographers dream. The grooms room is just as purposefully put together, with shades of blue, leather couches, and a pool table.
It is no secret that in this last year alone, Hollyfield Manor has won my heart as my favorite Richmond wedding venue. If Zach and I were getting married this year, Hollyfield would hands down be our venue. It is the very definition of Joyfully Elegant. Polished without being pretentious, peaceful, inviting, beautiful, generous, and an incredible place to celebrate. String lights, a rope swing, a pond with a deck and gazebo, and sunsets over the cornfields add to the romantic ambiance. They even let you bury bourbon on site! I literally can not imagine a more perfect place for couples to feel comfortable and confident on their wedding day AND for guests to thoroughly enjoy themselves.
There are two options for an outdoor ceremony: overlooking the pond, and overlooking the manor. If it rains, the ceremony can easily be held in the spacious and gorgeous reception hall. Cocktail hour can be enjoyed from it’s own private room indoors or with the option to spill into the backyard under lights and surrounded by vintage furniture. One of the most considerate things you can do as a bride & groom for your guests is to choose a venue that does it all. Guests need only drive to one place and are free to just enjoy the rest of the evening as they celebrate with you!
Catering is all done on sight and is absolutely some of the best wedding food I’ve ever had. I would actually love to be a guest at a Hollyfield Manor wedding sometime! The reception space has ample room for guests to be seated AND to dance the night away. Surrounded by windows, the view of the pond and gazebo is spectacular.
As if all of that perfection isn’t enough, the staff at Hollyfield Manor absolutely go out of their way to serve with excellence. They are friendly, cheerful, and some of the best in the business. If you want hearts of gold surrounding you on your wedding day, look no further than these kind professionals.
The JOY and light that I have been able to capture at Hollyfield Manor still stirs my creative heart. They have done such an incredible job of setting up just enough beauty to be a blank canvas for each couple: showcasing their relationship, their emotions, and their vision for the day. Each wedding I’ve photographed there has been such an honor and a privilege.
I can not WAIT to photograph more and more weddings there. I am beyond thrilled to be a preferred vendor for Hollyfield Manor and will be in attendance at the Fall Open House on October 7th from 12p.m.-4p.m. Please stop by to say hello and to get a tour of this breath-taking venue. It is a total gem and of course, I would LOVE to see you!
