WDB’s Wedding Event Centers  offer three distinctly different venues to make your wedding  just like you dreamed.

Make it Regal

The White Dog BistroThe White Dog Bistro for a Southern Manor style wedding. The Bistro unites artistry, simplicity and elegance with beautiful fireplaces set in a classic 1840′s southern mansion.Aerial of the White Dog Bistro  Windows and glass-paned doors along the outside wall allow natural light to stream-in; then if you’re looking for a more upbeat and causal vibe you have the option of adjourning to either the indoor/outdoor Key West inspired bar or spacious outdoor courtyard for dancing or you can start here with your outdoor cocktail hour all served on silver trays butler-style.  This is an area where we can accommodate your additional guests as well.  All areas provide a sense of warmth, serenity and comfort for your wedding reception.

Make it Rustic

tabernacle-pavilion2“The Pavilion at the Tabernacle” for a Rustic yet Regal barn/pavilion style wedding.  This 7 acre property is tucked away in a beautiful wooded enclave with 7,000 sq ft under-roof and a full stage for bands; all that plus its on the Virginia historic registry too.  The all wood interior has soaring 20ft cathedral ceilings.  Large and spacious but still very much in-tune with nature.  You can have your ceremony or reception in this beautiful salute to the outdoors.  Your wedding here is all about getting back to nature, organic elements with a little bohemian flair will set the scene for your romance. Think cafe lights, a farm to table menu and beautiful wild flowers. If you love vintage elements then this is your dream location.

Whether you grew up in the country or maybe you’re just a city girl who loves the great outdoors. Either way you get it and understand how chic and sophisticated our venue can be.  It will be the perfect escape for you both and the real beauty of it is that it’s basically like a blank slate; you can decorate it to your heart’s desire, transforming it into anything you wish. If you like the thought of barn weddings, you’ll love our place!
