Located in Moseley, VA, Amber Grove is a wedding venue situated on 15 acres of rolling farmland. Rustic and charming yet decidedly elegant, this setting ensures that each wedding is sure to be an event that guests will never forget. A visit to Amber Grove will transport you back in time. This historic estate has a rich and celebrated history as a family-run dairy farm, dating back to the mid-19th century. In 1884 Ambrose Goode and his wife built the current house in a stunning colonial style, complete with white pillars and a sprawling front porch. Current owner John McBride bought the estate in 1997 and turned it into the incredible event venue it is today. The team at Amber Grove has worked hard to preserve the vintage charm of the property while still updating it with all the modern amenities needed to pull off a great wedding. Owner John McBride helps coordinate all aspects of event planning with couples, including professional menu design. While Amber Grove does not permit outside catering, their preferred caterers are exceptionally talented and can cook dishes to suit most tastes. John can also provide a list of trusted vendors in the area and help make arrangements if you so desire. On the day of the event, the wedding party gets complete and exclusive access to the estate, and there are private rooms on site for getting ready. The estate includes multiple ceremony sites, depending on your personal preference and time of year. In the warmer months, you can exchange vows in the backyard gazebo, while if the weather is colder, the rustic heated barn is a cozy, intimate space for ceremonies. Receptions occur in the climate-controlled 40’ x 80’- tent attached to the original house by a covered walkway. The tent is the perfect place to celebrate with loved ones, featuring a dance floor, a DJ stage, a bar, and plenty of seating to accommodate anywhere from 150 to 220 guests. Additionally, acrylic tableware, barware, tables, chairs are available for use, and the team will take care of setup and breakdown.
