Secret Garden Romance

The 250-year-old grand oak — lovingly dubbed The Wedding Tree — has been known to bring tears to couples' eyes when they first see it. Caressed by gentle green hills and deep forests, the tree's breathtaking living canopy envelops guests as they witness sacred vows from 18 polished wooden church pews.

Dripping in natural Southern grace, 64-acre Avonlea Farms houses numerous wedding vignette sites that offer the perfect blend secluded and celebratory charm. Curate your day around this Central Virginia secret garden wedding venue and call on the dedicated and detail-oriented venue staff for a seamless and stress-free day.

Begin your day primping in the luxe farmhouse bridal suite over a coffee and mimosa bar. Gather for a pre-ceremony photo shoot on the edge of the small reflective lake before assembling under the beautiful oak tree for tender nuptials and idyllic backdrops. Flow into the vintage glass greenhouse or adjacent covered pavilion for cocktail and a reception to remember. Collapse in blissful exhaustion at the end of the night in the Avonlea Farms cottage and awaken to peaceful quiet, hot tub soaks and a catered continental breakfast.
