The Visual Arts Center of Richmond is the perfect venue for a wedding.

All weddings include the use of:

  • Schaberg Commons
  • Cabell Courtyard
  • Dominion Energy Room

Many couples choose to hold their ceremony in Cabell Courtyard, the cocktail hour in Schaberg Commons and dinner in the Dominion Energy Room; however, there’s no wrong way to use the space. Cabell Courtyard also makes a lovely location for cocktails, and can be tented if desired.


The facility rental fee for weddings is a flat $2,500 from April through October. Rates drop to $2,000 between November and March.

The fee includes:

  • Two hours of set-up
  • Four hours for the ceremony and reception
  • One hour for clean-up/breakdown
  • Use of VisArts’ kitchen
  • Use of VisArts’ A/V (plug-in set-up)
  • VisArts staff member on site for the duration of the event

The fee does not include:

  • Table and chair rental
  • Linens rental
  • Tent rental
  • Catering

We encourage wedding parties to use one of our preferred caterers, but don’t require it.

The True F. Luck Gallery is typically closed during after-hours events. Wedding parties can opt to keep the gallery open during their reception; doing so costs an additional $500.

Weddings may be extended past the four-hour time frame for a fee of $300 per hour. Please note that, to comply with local noise ordinances, all outdoor music must cease by 11 p.m.

All parties must agree to VisArts’ rental terms and conditions.
