Top 10 Virginia Wedding Resorts: Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast Inn
Located at the end of a winding country lane, even the entrance to the Virginia bed and breakfast in our No. 10 spot is picture-perfect. You’ll find plenty more photo ops when you host your wedding at Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast in the heart of Virginia wine country.
We think Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast boasts a winning combination of idyllic country setting, historic buildings and affordable luxury. It’s no wonder so many couples come to this Virginia inn seeking entire wedding weekends in place of traditional one-day ceremonies. Let Briar Patch plan the whole event, from rehearsal dinner on Friday and an outdoor ceremony followed by dinner and dancing on Saturday. Plus, all day Sunday for your guests to recover in the comfort of the Briar Patch main house while you and your newly betrothed escape to the privacy of your own one-bedroom cottage.
Don’t think we forgot about the photo opportunities we promised. What once was the Briar Patch tractor barn has been transformed into the spectacular Fox Den event venue. Inside, polished oak floors, natural stone pillars and crystal chandeliers blend for a reception space that is sophisticated without being stuffy. Outside, blooming gardens, rolling Virginia fields bordered by white picket fences and an elegant wedding terrace that overlooks them both. Past couples have even exited in style via classic cars, horse-drawn carriages and a ribbon-adorned scooter.
Things to Know
A weekend wedding at Briar Patch B&B gives the bride- and groom-to-be’s families time to get to know one another, reflecting a 19th century Southern custom when weddings were held at the family estate and relatives were expected to stay for several days.
