What initially draws couples to this venue is its elegance, what keeps them is its many opportunities. Great Marsh Estate is a wedding venue in Virginia located just an hour outside of Washington, DC. As for elegance, it boasts a Georgian-styled Manor House sitting on over 121 acres of grassy lawns, meadows, and wooded paths. The estate offers both indoor and outdoor opportunities that cater to your wedding day events and style. See how this couple personalized their own classy wedding at this Virginia wedding venue!
This couple proves that your wedding can be a formal event but can still include all of your personality and unique touches. Zizhan and Justin met as freshmen in college and were together for five years before they decided to make things permanent. The bride described their hopes for the wedding day as “a simple, classy, and elegant wedding with photos that capture our love for each other and our joy while together!” They wanted elegance with a spin and they got it!
This Virginia wedding venue provided the perfect palette for this couple to color in with their own style, heritage, and story on their wedding day. Here’s how they did it!
Zizhan added touches from her Chinese culture throughout the wedding day activities and design.
In choosing an estate for their wedding, Zizhan and Justin wanted one categorized by elegance and tons of space while located within reach of Washington, DC (where they did their engagement photos!). The Great Marsh Estate checked off their wedding venue wishlist! As Zizhan shared, “We love the open space of the ceremony area,” contrasted with “the coziness of the reception area.” The bride continued, “The brightness of both places is great, and the mansion is gorgeous and elegant.” There are so many options for spots to utilize throughout your wedding day at the Virginia wedding venue.
