Weddings

Rassawek is a property in western Goochland, Virginia steeped in local lore where old buildings and materials from the region–otherwise slated for demolition– are salvaged from the wrecking ball and are relocated, repurposed and rebuilt.

Over the past 20 years, Rassawek has transformed from a breathtaking landscape of raw land to a unique event venue studded with charming barns, rustic cabins, a covered bridge and many other one of a kind features.

With endless possibilities, Rassawek is the perfect place to say “I Do”. We have two stunning locations on property to pick from for your special day. Whether you choose an intimate barn wedding or a waterfront views from under our large tent, our goal is to make this the most unique and memorable experience possible.

The Hilltop Experience

Our hilltop wedding experience is perfect for couples looking for an intimate wedding. Take our charming brick walkway leading into a salvaged gazebo and you are met with a stunning ceremony site overlooking rolling hills. After you say “I Do”, our white barn is the perfect location to celebrate with friends and family. The barn walls are studded with antique artifacts and the wagon wheel chandelier lights are the perfect touch of elegance meets rustic. This package is best suited for couples looking to have a wedding of 50 people or less.
