Weddings at Scents of Cedar Bed and Breakfast are customized to your taste and budget. Our log home offers a quaint, intimate setting for the perfect rustic wedding adorned with mason jars filled with fresh flowers and lemonade. We offer southern hospitality and the perfect location to spread picnic blankets and picnic baskets for a country chic venue. In the Spring of 2014, the Scents of Cedar Wedding Barn was opened. It’s a 23′ x 38′ covered structure accented with a wall of galvanized tin art, wine barrels, soft party lighting and a restored church pew from a local Petersburg church. There is ample seating and a built in buffet side board.

The beauty of each season welcomes a new bride and groom. In the spring, the property is bursting with nature’s greenery and new buds. There are several beautiful, picturesque sites on the five acres. Orange trumpet vines wind around a small arbor that begins to green in mid-April and welcomes the hummingbirds to enjoy the nectar of its beautiful orange trumpet blossoms. We encourage you to schedule an appointment, walk the grounds and get to know us.
Our newest garden next to our acre size, natural fed pond is accented with an 8’ by 12’ arbor. Wedding tulle looped through the slates of the arbor against the beauty of the pine trees makes an intimate setting for a wedding. The pale pink blossoms of plum trees are the first colors to appear in late March as the leafs of the white clematis begin to peak through the earth and wrap each pillar of the arbor. Since nature doesn’t always perform on demand, artificial flowers are equally attractive. The bride and her escort will enjoy a tranquil 100’ stroll from the top balcony to the pond as your groom and guests await you.
In the brisk air of the fall, our outdoor stone fireplace is also a beautiful backdrop for your wedding vows. The gas log fireplace is under a 24’ by 24’ covered pool house next to the 18’ by 36’ in ground pool. The pool house is covered with cedar log siding, has cedar exposed beams and equipped with restroom facilities. There is ample wattage to support sound systems. Purple and red crepe myrtle trees grace the landscape in the August and September months. The backyard is illuminated with landscape lights to accentuate the surrounding trees.
All four guest rooms at the Scents of Cedar Bed and Breakfast are discounted at the rate of 20% when all rooms are reserved for out of town wedding guests. The Cabin in the Woods is located next to the pond and is perfect for the secluded honeymoon rendezvous.
Other events with sit down dining can be accommodated indoors at Scents of Cedar Bed and Breakfast for groups of 30-35.
