Planning a wedding is a beautiful experience. Selecting the right venue, often the earliest and most important step, can predict whether or not the subsequent items on your list will be stressful or enjoyable. We have spent the last several months in search of the perfect venue that offers multiple services and a phenomenal back drop for your celebrations. When we came across Nesselrod on the New River, we knew immediately that we had found the perfect wedding location.
Nesselrod is a romantic oasis surrounded by formal boxwood and hemlock gardens in Radford, Virginia. Its outdoor gazebo, gothic arches, and ethereal florals create a magical environment for weddings, receptions, rehearsals, and bridal portraits. Their outdoor season is from April through October, and during it they can accommodate up to 250 guests. From November to March, their guesthouse is perfect for more intimate weddings of up to 25 guests.
Couples may choose from one of four wedding packages. All packages include a wedding coordinator, parking attendant, and sound system for the ceremony. They also include tables, chairs, and linens on the patio and reception area for up to 120 guests. Additionally, gourmet meals are prepared by an onsite chef and served by staff, and the grounds are available for engagement and bridal portraits. For a truly unique experience, couples can add a horse and carriage to their ceremony and take advantage of amenities like golf, paddleboarding, fishing, tubing, or kayaking.
The Unforgettable Wedding package allows exclusive use of the estate from noon on Thursday until noon on Sunday, dinner on Thursday night for guests of the Inn, a massage for six guests of the bridal party, a bridal luncheon on Friday, a rehearsal evening complete with dinner options on the patio or in the gardens, and much more!
Those looking for a smaller ceremony with a reception inside the inn and a honeymoon suite for the bride and groom can find everything they need with the Intimate Wedding package. There are packages offered for elopements, mid-week and off season weddings, and everything in between.
Couples married during the month of October will have the added benefit of the fall foliage to create beautiful photos and priceless memories.
“A fall wedding at Nesselrod is unforgettable as it is a bride’s exclusive haven amongst the beautiful foliage and grounds that are unique to Nesselrod,” says Wedding Coordinator Kelsey Macintosh. “Brides can expect so many colors and backdrops for their October wedding, from the most vivid of greens to beautiful rustic oranges.”
This venue is the definition of unforgettable. Nesselrod brides will have their own dressing room, decorated with 18K gold cherubs and fine antiques. It is complete with a vanity, full-length mirror, ironing board, and shower. Here, the bride can relax with her bridesmaids and family before embarking on her special day.
