The greenhouse is located at our home in Forest, Virginia. Our 'plant season' is mid-April to mid-October, although we do offer off-season weddings as well! The maximum occupancy is 20 people inside (16 max recommended) and 50 guests outside, plus the couple & officiant.
The standard rental time is 2 hours. This provides enough time for your ceremony, family pictures and couple pictures. It's recommended that you add-on the reception package to have enough time for mingling, toasts, cake-cutting and a meal.
We also have a Seedling package if you're interested in a 'the couple only' ceremony.
Please send over an email and ask for the brochure to see all the options we have available!

“It was so amazing to just be able to put all the planning, decorating and setting everything up onto to someone who wasn’t a treasured guest. I sent Megan a Pinterest board of what I envisioned and she brought it to life even better than I could have imagined. Being able to speak with one person when it came to the venue, flowers, decorations, video, photography, coordination made everything SO MUCH easier because I wasn’t waiting on 8 different people to email me back.”
At first, I was upset when I had to cancel my big wedding because of Covid. But when I found the greenhouse and spoke with Megan, I was wondering why I even decided to have a large wedding in the first place. The greenhouse is one of the most magical places I've ever set eyes on. It was truly a blessing to be able to get married there. It's peaceful, tranquil and you can feel the love an intimacy in that space. Megan took care of everything. I literally just showed up and got married. I can't even begin to explain how much weight was lifted off of me! I was able to really enjoy my day, knowing all the little things were covered. THANK YOU SO MUCH MEGAN & MITCH!!!!!
"Magical is the one word I would use to describe the Vaughan House Greenhouse. Megan is amazing at styling the greenhouse in so many different ways for all kinds of wedding styles. Ours was dreamy, fairy, and flowery. Beyond the venue, is the level of photography and cinematography that this couple can produce, truly timeless memories captured perfectly."
"We had my wedding July 2020 and Megan was wonderful to work with! She was very easy to communicate with. The greenhouse itself is so beautiful, especially in person. We had 9 people at our wedding due to the pandemic and change of wedding plans. But the greenhouse was the perfect size for our small wedding. It was very comfortable and enough space for everyone. She worked with us non stop. We had her as our photographer too, we loved her photos so much. She even felt like a wedding coordinator too which was so helpful! We don’t regret our decision of our change of wedding dates and venue to this one. 10/10 recommendation!"
"You spoke life and comfort into stressful situations and kept everything calm, cool and collected. I know I can be a crazy mess, but you were such a blessing to have on our special day... I absolutely adore the photos that you took and how they perfectly portray the essence of who we are as a couple."
"Megan Vaughan…where oh where do I begin… This woman is completely inspiring. From the moment I talked to her over the phone when I was searching for photographers, I knew I wanted to book with her. And when people say that the 1 thing you want to splurge for during your wedding is a photographer. LISTEN TO THEM. Her editing is absolutely timeless, and is literally the best I have seen."
"How prepared you were, how amazing you were with my family and my groom, managing all different people and personalities while capturing all of the amazing things we wanted to remember forever... it takes someone special to do all of that and do it really well. You are truly a blessing for every bride and groom that you grace your talents with."
"Megan has an exceptional talent when it comes to capturing the details of your wedding. Her passion for photography, connecting with her clients, and love for Jesus shine through as she works. She is constantly providing you with feedback, praise and showering you with compliments."
"We are overwhelmed with how wonderful our photos are from both our engagement and our wedding... Both of us have been left speechless and emotional with some of the shots that you were able to capture because we see the projection of feelings that we have inside for one another. It is a very special talent to be able to see through the chaos and excitement around you and find a flicker of joy and love. For that, we thank you."
