349 Pleasant Landing Rd, Bumpass, VA
Pleasants Landing is a stunning waterfront wedding venue in Bumpass, Virginia. This idyllic 12-acre venue contains a 5-acre peninsula. It sits on the southeast banks of Lake Anna, the state’s second-largest lake. Stunning panoramic views of the surrounding countryside act as a dramatic, yet naturally beautiful, backdrop for wedding photos. This marina was purchased by the Vallerie family in 2015 with the aim of creating a modern event space for the local community. They sought to enhance the natural beauty of the area by adding somewhere to host cultural events or offer dining amenities. Pleasants Landing regularly holds fun community gatherings, from triathlons in the summer months to outdoor concerts and festivals. Richmond International Airport is roughly an hour’s drive from the property, and there are various nearby hotels for guests from out of town. Pleasants Landing covers 2,500 feet of the lake’s shore, creating an intimate space for wedding ceremonies. Between its indoor and outdoor locations, couples can choose the space that most reflects their needs and preferences. A lakeside ceremony exudes romance, while celebrations in the banquet hall can be decorated to fit themes from rustic to contemporary. The venue is inherently rustic, but couples can decide to embrace this or slightly alter it to suit their tastes. Hanging draping over the windows can fill the room with soft, diffused light for a tender atmosphere. The Banquet Room, covering 2,900 square feet, can fit up to 200 of your loved ones, and includes tables and chairs. Catering companies can avail of the adjoining prep room, while guests can take in the breathtaking scenery from the large stone patio. Possible outdoor spaces include the Point, the Pier, the Beach, and the Lawn. For an elegant celebration, the patio is available for cocktail receptions. The staff at this estate have plenty of experience in working with local wedding vendors and can supply a list of businesses that they recommend. Couples can make an unforgettable entrance to the celebration by renting one of the venue’s boats, or they can sail off into the sunset together.
