I'm a UVA girl, so Charlottesville will always have a special place in my heart. I lived there for 4 years, and I think it is hands down one of the most beautiful places in the United States. It is also home to some truly spectacular wedding venues. It's quickly become a high-end destination wedding location because of the lush greenery and mountain views in every direction. There are so many great venues that narrowing down your search can be overwhelming. Here are a few of my favorites!

It's the perfect venue for a bride looking to do something a little different with her wedding. You will be able to get creative and use Belle Haven to create your dream wedding.
