A Trump Winery Wedding will have you awestruck. The venue is conveniently located just outside of beautiful Charlottesville, Virginia. It is quite close to many other wineries and historical land marks such as Monticello and James Monroe Highland! Due to the location of this venue, it will be a stunning back drop to your wedding day! The location is only the beginning of what this venue has to offer! A few of the amazing features you will see here are spectacular scenery and its very own on-site Chapel. Couples can choose between two main venues: the Grand Hall and the charmingly rustic, Barn & Pavilion. Each venue also includes access to the chapel which can serve as the perfect ceremony location. Trump Winery’s facilities are breathtaking and offer several choices that can accommodate your party no matter the size!
If you are searching for a graceful and stately venue, the Grand Hall is for you! This venue is sure to impress with a hilltop view and several spacious ballrooms. The bridal suite features luxurious white and gold furniture. As a result, brides will receive a high-end experience as soon as they start getting ready. The men aren’t left out either! The groom’s suite has inviting and comfortable leather furniture, perfect for lounging. Believe me when I say that couples that have a Trump Winery Wedding have an eye for the details!
In addition, to the suites, there is a breathtaking reserve room for your cocktail hour that features a working fireplace. The reserve room connects to an outdoor patio that overlooks the valley. It is the is perfect spot for an outdoor cocktail hour!
The Barn & Pavilion offers romantic scenery that will make your day even more magical. The barn’s French doors lead you to a spacious slate terrace with sweeping views of the vineyard, and lake. The views are breathtaking no matter the season. The atmosphere is perfect for any style and taste. Of course, you cannot forget the stunning reception area in the Pavilion. It includes a mahogany and granite bar where you can serve Trump Winery’s wine to your guests!
Named “one of the world’s most beautiful contemporary chapels” by Architectural Digest, a Trump Winery Wedding provides access to the most beautiful wedding chapel! It features real marble floors, a hand-painted ceiling mural, leaded glass windows, and a working pipe organ. This intimate space will make your special day even more luxurious. The beautiful exterior also provides a stunning backdrop in portraits or a first look. Regardless of how you decide to utilize it, the chapel will be an unforgettable part of your occasion!
A Trump Winery wedding fulfills your every need. Both venues offer spacious dressing areas for the bride that feature elegant furnishings, large mirrors, and private restrooms. You can rest assured that this will be the perfect place to prepare for your big moment. The groom is not forgotten either, as they provide the gentlemen with their own dressing areas featuring large screen TV’s. Everyone in your party will have the perfect location to start off the day! If your outdoor wedding is threatened by inclement weather, you can quickly and easily pivot to one of the indoor spaces that accommodates your guest list. Both venues are perfect for catering, as they each have dedicated event kitchens with plenty of space for your caterer to prepare for you, and both venues accommodate for almost any band.
Yes, you heard me right! Are you coming from out of town and would rather stay on site? If so you need to check out Trump Winery’s Albermarle Estate. This Estate is stunning, and is hands down one of my favorite places to photograph in all of Charlottesville. It is located on the wineries property, but is separated with a gate for guest privacy from others visiting the vineyard and tasting room.
The Estate has immaculate gardens and patios for guests to walk around in and enjoy. As you could guess from the rest of the Winery, the inside of the Albermarle Estate is just as gorgeous as the outside. Most importantly, as a guest you can take photos at the Estate with special request! I personally suggest for couples to plan a several night trip here if they are interested in an engagement session. Your engagement photos will be stunning! r stay here the night of your wedding for a romantic newly-wed night!
Magical scenery and a variety of amenities make a Trump Winery wedding perfect for elegant brides. Whether you are searching for a charmingly rustic or classic venue, you will be overjoyed by everything this location offers. As I have noted Trump Winery also has its own hotel. The Albermarle Estate will surely make you and your guests feel like royalty. The added convenience for guests to stay will surely make your guests feel special too!
