Special Events

Charlottesville area boutique wedding venue. Selected by as one of the 12 best B&B Fantasy Wedding Locations. The Lafayette Inn & Restaurant remains a favorite destination for small boutique weddings and receptions. Host your reception (or rehearsal dinner) in our dining room, the adjacent courtyard or for smaller gatherings in the Tavern. Larger group- reserve the entire restaurant and enjoy all of the space!

Brides often choose our gazebo for the actual ceremony, our courtyard for the larger receptions and our dining room for the smaller service. The Courthouse bells ring at noon and six o’clock in the evening and can be heard at The Lafayette Inn, should you wish to coordinate your ceremony with the chimes.

Beyond the wedding location, The Lafayette can also arrange the food and beverage service, assist in finding the florist, wedding cake designer…even your wedding celebrant should you desire. Many brides prefer the assistance of a professional wedding planner- we have partnered with one of the best! Enjoy all that our central Virginia area location provides!
