Weddings

Featured in USA Today as one of the top places in Virginia for all-inclusive elopement weddings!

Our Virginia Bed and Breakfast specializes in intimate wedding ceremonies and receptions. The innkeepers themselves had an intimate wedding in Virginia, so they know exactly how to cater to couples seeking a warm and cherished experience!

The Holladay House is a special place for a Virginia wedding. Our home has hosted Virginia wedding celebrations since the Civil War (see our History section to read about them!), so your wedding will become a meaningful part of the long-established traditions of our historic inn. In our experience, intimate wedding services are comfortable, sincere, and happy occasions for us, the bride and groom, and their close friends and family. In addition, top-quality florists, caterers, salons, and other service providers are available right here in town to meet all your needs. We can even host your bridal shower or other related events. We will happily help you create a memorable occasion!

Making the Details Easy...

Marriage Licenses

Virginia weddings require a valid Virginia marriage license. The Orange County Courthouse is two blocks from the Holladay House Bed and Breakfast. If you would like to get your marriage license in Orange, both parties must be at least 18 years old, present, and with a valid government-issued photo ID (such as a driver's license) and $30 cash. The Courthouse is open Monday through Friday, 8:30am - 3:30pm. The license is valid the day of approval. For more information on marriage license requirements, visit the Virginia Department of Health website.

Engagement Ring and Wedding Band Care

Are you using an heirloom engagement ring and wedding band that needs a little shaping and cleaning?  Are your new engagement ring and wedding bands too small or too large?  We have a simple, cost-effective way to help care for your rings: an in-house expert jeweler! Sharon's (the innkeeper's) Dad has recently moved to Orange, Virginia and has opened his jewelry repair business here.  After 50 years creating and repairing jewelry in NYC's Diamond District, his talents are now being put to good use in the Central Virginia region.  He'll meet you at the inn and, in most cases, can make your wedding rings perfect before your ceremony!  Visit his jewelry repair Facebook page for more details and pictures.  To book an appointment at the inn, please ask the innkeeper to make the arrangements for you!

Private Dinner After Your Ceremony

We have arranged a special private dinner opportunity for our newlyweds and their guests at Vintage Restaurant, just 2 miles from our inn.  The innkeepers will arrange all the details of your private dinner for up to 20 guests.  Dinner includes a private room, a 4-course chef's-choice menu and non-alcoholic drinks.  Have a memorable private wedding dinner for only $65 per person!  Chef Daniel will make sure to take all dietary concerns into consideration while planning your menu.  Please note, tax, alcoholic drinks and gratuity is not included.  To reserve, please ask your innkeeper to make the arrangements for you!
