Outdoor Wedding Venue in Northern Virginia

Hold Your Wedding on One of Virginia's Largest Patios with Picturesque Surroundings !   

Outdoor weddings have never gone out of style.  The outdoor venue is just as desirable among couples as ever, and what could be lovelier than an outdoor wedding on a Virginia summer afternoon or evening?  Romance is the theme as the tranquil beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains provides a glorious backdrop to your exchange of vows.  

Outdoor weddings can be risky, there’s no doubt.  Months of planning, not to mention your wedding budget, can all be ruined by an errant thunderstorm.  However, there are plenty of options for your outdoor wedding that can allow you the splendor Mother Nature provides, along with the comfort of an indoor venue, should the need arise.

Rose Hill Manor is the ideal venue for the couple who want the stunning natural backdrop of a Virginia country wedding, along with the option of a beautiful setting for your nuptial feast.  With three very distinctive indoor options to complement our generous patio space, you can have the best of both worlds.  An outdoor ceremony of your dreams, and a comfortable reception indoors.  

Or should you decide to have both your ceremony and celebration outdoors, weather permitting, our patio is spacious enough for guests to mingle as they enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, or dinner al fresco.  Those attending will be treated to a most breathtaking view.  The rolling hillside, lush and verdant, and the mountains in the distance, bring the beauty of Virginia to your wedding.  Your guests will reflect on your special day for years to come.

Outdoor Wedding Venue with Options

Should you opt for an outdoor ceremony with an indoor reception, you’ll have your choice of one of three areas of the historic manor home, in which to dine and dance, or sip champagne and nibble on appetizers.  Each area is private and nicely yours.  The home is elegantly appointed and each reception area is tastefully decorated in accordance with the style of the manor house.  

For large parties, the Grand Ballroom provides the most space.  Opulence shines forth from every corner and cornice.  There’s room for a dance floor and plenty of space for a band or DJ to set up.  Crystal chandeliers descend from 24’ ceilings, leaving your guests awash in delicate light.  

The Small Ballroom is a wonderful space for your slightly smaller guest list.  Large windows open onto the grounds, incorporating your outdoor ceremony with your indoor celebration.  The panoramic view is quite lovely.  

For more intimate parties, the elegant Entry Hall is quite accommodating.  Richly appointed with traditional wainscoting and gleaming hardwoods, the Entry Hall bespeaks a sophisticated charm of days gone by.  Your guests can mingle and share in this magnificent occasion.


The Perfect Outdoor Wedding Venue

The extremely accommodating brick patio at Rose Hill Manor is among the largest patios in the state. This venue boasts a resplendent view of the estate grounds, and surrounding countryside.  There’s an intimate, landscaped area perfect for the exchange of vows, and the stately Jeffersonian manor home graces your view.

The outdoors makes a lovely setting for your wedding, however, you can’t always depend on the weather to cooperate.  When you choose Rose Hill Manor for your wedding venue, you have the option of moving your ceremony indoors.  Your wedding will be just as memorable in our exquisite interior space, and your guests will be comfortable.

 Once your ceremony is complete, you and your guests can chose to celebrate on the patio, or opt for an indoor reception.  Many couples enjoy cocktail hour with family and friends on the patio, then retire to one of the ballrooms, or Entrance Hall to enjoy dinner, dancing, or simply mingling with one another on such a significant occasion.  

If you choose to have simple bites or appetizers, the patio space is ideal for that as well.  Your guests can mingle and enjoy the event, as the beauty of a Virginia afternoon surrounds them.  Our large patio makes it easy to celebrate your marriage in style.  

At Rose Hill Manor, you’re in charge of your wedding.  From the flowers to the cake to the food that’s served and the wine that’s poured, Rose Hill Manor lets you make the decisions.  We honor any and all requests and will do everything in our power to make your day as spectacular as your love.
