Making Dreams Come True

Located in the heart of rural Dinwiddie County, Virginia, just 2.5 miles south of Dinwiddie Courthouse, Cedar Lane Farm sits on 112 acres of beautiful, historic farmland. The picturesque setting boasts a 1780s farmhouse built by Colonel Robert Edward Pegram during the period of the Revolutionary War though he actively served in the War of 1812. His remains, along with his wife and children, rest in a grave site located on the property. While visiting, guests will enjoy overlooking horses grazing in the pastures, resident ducks and geese wading on one of six ponds, four out buildings, a beautiful swimming pool, and scenic green and amber fields yielding the crop of the season.

The farmhouse is occupied by owners Mitch and Dawn Upton and our oldest daughter, Haley. It recently served as the backdrop for our youngest daughter Olivia’s wedding. It was in the preparations for her special day that we realized we have the facilities to be able to make dreams a reality for other brides and grooms. Transforming our daughter's childhood home into a wedding venue has been a labor of love. With both daughters’ blessings, Cedar Lane Farm Wedding and Events Venue was born. Named for the twenty-two mature, cedar trees lining the drive to the farmhouse, Cedar Lane Farm offers a number of amenities and picturesque settings perfect for hosting outdoor weddings and events. 

We are delighted you have chosen to visit our site. While here, we encourage you to browse through the photos and event tabs to check out venue and available packages. It is our desire to help make your wedding and event dreams a reality for you, too!

Every bride has a vision for her special day.

Though we browsed other wedding, venues, Olivia's desire was to be married at her homeplace. With only eleven months to prepare, Olivia shared her vision with her sister, Haley, and together they shared it with their Dad. He told them he could make it happen. And he did...
