A Lifetime Together Begins Here

Discover the romance of James and Dolley Madison's beloved home, nestled in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. This 2,650-acre estate offers three wedding packages that allow you to achieve the wedding of your dreams in a timeless and unforgettable venue.

Montpelier will host your rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, or reception in the beautiful Annie duPont Formal Garden, the Grand Salon in the duPont Gallery, or at Madison's Temple (unavailable due to restoration through 2015). We have lists of qualified and experienced caterers, florists, and other vendors who work with us to fulfill your every creative desire, making your wedding uniquely your own.

The Montpelier Wedding (2015)                           $8,500

Exchange vows with your partner at James Madison's Temple in view of Virginia's Blue Ridge, or hold your ceremony in the terraced Annie duPont Formal Garden amongst fragrant peonies, irises, and herbs. Due to restoration, the Temple is unavailable through 2015.

After your wedding photographs, take on your reception in style and elegance amongst treasures of a bygone era in the duPont Gallery. Enjoy cocktails with family and friends in the famous Art Deco Room, dine beneath the duPont's own gold-leafed chandelier in the Grand Salon, and dance against a backdrop of mountain vistas through floor-to-ceiling windows in the Exchange Cafe.
