Available for events year-round, Burlington is a wedding venue located in Charles City, Virginia. It was first built in 1818 and has been recently restored. Several features of the original property have been maintained throughout the various renovations, such as the pine flooring in the living room. This property is available for both ceremony and reception and offers a choice of indoor or outdoor locations. Facilities and Capacity Burlington offers couples the exclusive use of the property for the duration of their occasion. Two outdoor ceremony sites are available, as well as an expansive indoor ceremony space that can double as a reception venue. The indoor wedding space in the Stables features exposed wooden beams and custom chandeliers, while the gardens and lawn offer views of the surrounding countryside for an outdoor ceremony. Both the indoor and outdoor spaces can accommodate up to 300 seated guests. Two individual get-ready rooms allow the wedding party a private space to prepare themselves and relax before the ceremony. The Ice House Bar, an additional space converted from an 18th-century colonial ice house, can host cocktail receptions. Guests have access to the venue’s on-site parking facilities, which also includes a golf-cart shuttle for added convenience. This venue is wheelchair-accessible. Services Offered Burlington offers couples the use of parking attendants for the event, as well as assistance for setup and breakdown of the event space. Throughout the celebration, on-site staff are available to oversee the venue and to provide any additional help. Chairs and tables can be supplied for events, as well as three vintage-style mobile bars and two plain white mobile bars. With management approval, couples can invite their own outside vendors for catering, beverage services, decorating, event coordination, and other wedding needs. Accommodation This venue offers one side of the wedding party the chance to stay overnight in the Bridal Cottage the night before or after the event, if not both. The cottage sleeps up to seven guests and contains a kitchen, a salon, and three full bathrooms. The Main House sleeps up to four guests and is available for overnight guests when the property is rented for a full weekend.
