Motley’s Mill Waterfall Estate is located in southern Virginia’s peaceful, scenic countryside. It makes for a perfect destination wedding site and is a beautiful, all-seasons location for weddings year-round.

If you’re looking for Southern Virginia wedding venues that are elegant, rustic, or historical, you have options. But if you’re looking for a location with the “IT” factor, Motley’s Mill waterfall wedding venue is one-of-a-kind.

From our gorgeous vaulted-ceiling Chalet to our charming Villa for overnight guests, every inch of our 25-acre property is steeped in beauty. Wooden exposed beams compliment the natural majesty of our countryside estate, and our stunning dual staircase and tranquil waterfall offer countless options for breathtaking wedding photos. Did we mention the unmatched sunset views and the luxury saltwater infinity pool overlooking the falls?

Simply put, this venue is exquisite. And because we have two onsite representatives to assist with questions and parking on the day of your wedding, it makes your day magically easy. And you’ll have more time to soak up every moment and savor every memory. 

    “Your love is like a waterfall, running wild and free.”
