Perfectly Quirky Wedding at Quirk Hotel Richmond

This blog is for my couples who love all things quirky and unique, because today we’re going to feature the Quirk Hotel Richmond–an eccentrically unusual venue for your big day. Located in Richmond, Virginia, the Quirk Hotel gives off chic and cool vibes, all in the beautiful Arts District of the city. 

Trendy AF–we love to see it!

When you decide to have a Quirk Hotel wedding, your day is going to be about as trendy as it gets. The hotel embodies the city’s effortlessly trendy spirit, boasting locally sourced artwork embellishing the walls and custom furniture made from parts original to the building. 

From its black and white sign on the exterior to its maximalist lobby, Quirk Hotel Richmond offers couples an experiential wedding unlike any other. 

My favorite part of the hotel’s décor is the unconventional dome architecture of its lobby. When you walk in, you feel like you’re being transported to a mod train station in Berlin. The pink chairs are the cherry on top!

Details around every corner.

From the elevator lobby to the bathrooms, you always have something to look at. Think big, intricate paper artwork and abstract bathrooms fit for a modern museum. Or maybe you’d rather dream about the cowhide chairs and black, wraparound staircase. Imagine coral pink walls adorned with anthropomorphic dogs and watercolor alligators. I know, it sounds kind of crazy, but this is what you get with the Quirk Hotel Richmond.

Spaces perfect for an unmatched wedding.

What I love so much about a Quirk Hotel wedding is the space opportunities. Whether you want a rooftop setting against a cotton candy sunset, a crisp courtyard with blue- and white-checkered floors, or a sunlit lobby amidst the hustle and bustle of the hotel, you have so much at your fingertips!

My favorite is the rooftop. What I love most about this spot are the 360-degree views of Richmond. On clear days, you can see for miles, adding a wanderlust-y romantic feel to your special day. The grounds boast an arena-style bar, making it a stunning centerpiece to your reception. The twinkling lights make it even more striking. 

Pink lovers, unite!

I know I mentioned it above, but I can’t talk about Quirk Hotel Richmond without addressing the PINK! This is the hotel’s signature color. From its coffee mugs, bathroom walls, chairs, and pens, to its lamps, signs, flowers, and curtains–pink is the name of the game, and we LOVE it.

Reasons I love the Quirk Hotel Richmond? Really, there are too many to list here! But I absolutely love the chic furniture throughout the hotel. It makes for gorgeous portraits throughout the venue and makes every couple look like trend setters! The lobby is seriously one of my favorite spots because it is full of natural light, fun pieces, and truly captures the vibe of the hotel.

Each suite is seriously stunning and makes the perfect backdrop for those classy getting ready photos you’ve been dreaming of. Whether you’re looking for a plush room for popping champagne with the girls or a suave spot for the guys to sip Whisky before slipping into tuxeos, you’ll find it at this trendy hotel for sure!

It’s also a GREAT place to grab a bite to eat! Their menu at The Quirk Hotel Richmond is fantastic and you’ll see people making reservations way ahead of time to snag a spot.

hi, i'm danielle—

In the past 10+ years as a Wedding & Portrait Photographer, I’ve found that, aside from arming myself with my cameras to catch swoon-worthy moments of my couples on their day, I’m also bringing a few other unexpected things. 

Like my tough love mom-voice that will keep your bridal party in check, my air of calm if you’re feeling overwhelmed, and the corniest jokes so no one has the jitters in front of the camera!

Because so much more goes into getting those gorgeous wedding photos than just hitting “click!”
