Elopements and Professional Photography

Blandy’s picturesque views and wonderfully open spaces offer a variety of unique and beautiful settings. Standing microweddings and elopement ceremonies with fewer than 20 guests are welcome at Blandy, as are special occasion photoshoots. There are no set fees for these activities, but donations are welcome and can be deposited in the colorful donation tube under the information pavilion at the main parking lot.

We are not able to accommodate wedding receptions and do not allow the set up of chairs, tents, or decor for ceremonies or photoshoots. Groups must follow all visitor guidelines; do not pick flowers, stand in garden beds, climb trees, or sit or stand on stone walls. No glitter, confetti, color powder, silly string, etc., is allowed. Groups may not block any area for their exclusive use and should avoid close proximity to buildings.

We appreciate being informed about plans to use the grounds at Blandy for group gatherings. Call 540-837-1758 or email [email protected]
