Weddings at Polegreen

Add another chapter to your story at Historic Polegreen Church and bring two families together while you're surrounded by the natural beauty of the trees and sky. Historic Polegreen Church offers a simplistic and serene environment for your wedding day. You can choose to leave it natural and allow for the beauty of the Church and nature to speak for itself, or you can dress it up and create a more refined feel. Whichever you choose, you can't go wrong!

Prior to your ceremony you can use the Visitor's Center as a place to get ready and then, following the ceremony, you may have your reception out on our beautiful lawn. It's the perfect space to set up a large reception tent and celebrate with family and friends. The idyllic Church Site, rolling greens, and location—located just 12 miles outside of Richmond—make Historic Polegreen Church a perfect slice of wedding bliss!

If a rock star can be married at Polegreen, so can you. In 2015, Jason Mraz married Christina here. Our popularity as a wedding venue immediately grew. But we still have open dates!

Jason's recent song, Might As Well Dance, includes video from his wedding day at Polegreen:

Absolutely STUNNING wedding venue. I honestly drove by here all the time growing up and it was a dream to have my wedding here. Weather day was perfect. It was everything I dreamed of and more.

Perfect wedding venue. Their grounds add so much style to your event. Highly recommend.

Tom C. Wedding date: October 14, 2017

It’s a beautiful venue for a wedding. It’s just too cool looking.

The venue, without saying, it’s beautiful on its own without having to decorate it much at all. Great place for our wedding!

Michelle M. Wedding date:
May 12, 2018

It’s a casual, hands-off venue. It’s a blank slate that you can dress up as much or as little as you want. Very affordable. Simplistic, outdoor space.

This venue will blow you away — while it is a historical site, they also rent out the space for events. We had our wedding here and it was stunning. The site manager was very communicative and flexible when we had to postpone our 2020 wedding due to COVID. All of our guests loved the location and it was very easy to get to. The site has a conference room for getting ready and there are multiple stalled restrooms. There is ample parking for guests and vendors. There is power in multiple locations for reception tent lighting, DJ, catering, and photo booth. We had a great experience and feel very grateful to have had our wedding here.
