Our Virginia Bed and Breakfast specializes in all-inclusive intimate wedding ceremonies and elopements. 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 1864 (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 will happily help you create a memorable occasion!
