Weddings & Events


Rassawek is a charming and unique wedding venue in Columbia, Virginia. Located on the James River corridor about 45 minutes from Richmond and Charlotesville. Weddings at Rassawek are held outside, depending on the size of the gathering. Receptions are held under a tent, in the barn or around the cabins and greenhouse or under a blanket of stars. Since we are an outdoor venue we are not limited when it comes to the number of guests. We have many areas for ceremonies to be held, we leave it up to the bride and groom to decided where they want to say their vows and celebrate. We have enjoyed the creativity that each couple has brought to Rassawek.
