Tucked in between the stunning Blue Ridge Mountains and the excitement of the nation’s capital, Northern Virginia is a unique and diverse backdrop for an extraordinary wedding celebration. From beautiful historic estates to rich farmland and vineyards, it’s home to a variety of destination luxury resorts and other beautiful venues. I’ve put together some of my favorite Northern Virginia wedding venues for you to consider for your dream wedding. Take a look!
The Goodstone Inn is a premier destination and exclusive countryside resort set on 265 acres of rolling hills. You and your partner can exchange vows overlooking the spectacular property before gathering with friends and family beside the pool and fire pit for cocktails. Then, celebrate beneath a grand tent, dining on a plated dinner crafted by their talented executive chef. You can always turn your Northern Virginia wedding day into a wedding weekend with a luxury stay, private yoga classes, a trip to the spa, and so much more!
Great Marsh Estate is a modern historic replica of a traditional Georgian manor house. Today, the home hosts an elegant bridal suite and groom’s quarters, while the sun-soaked grounds are ideal for a romantic outdoor ceremony. The reception hall boasts modern elegance with preserved rustic touches. Soaring ceilings lined in wooden beams and draped with dramatic fabric make it a stunning space for a sophisticated celebration. It’s a stunning estate reminiscent of another era but with every modern amenity needed for an upscale wedding.
Lansdowne Resort is “a sanctuary for spa and wellness enthusiasts, golfers, foodies, and travelers seeking rejuvenation.” Overlooking the Potomac River Valley, the resort’s 500 sprawling acres are home to a variety of stunning event spaces. While they have several ballrooms and indoor gathering spaces from which you can choose, be sure to check out their Potomac Terrace. Lined in trees and facing a panoramic view of the Valley, it’s an exquisite space for a ceremony. The outdoor pavilion is another unique space to utilize for a reception that brings in the beauty of the property.
Heralded as “The Most Romantic Ceremony Site We Have Ever Seen” by the Washingtonian, Airlie wedding venue has a reputation for hosting extraordinary Northern Virginia weddings. Their butterfly and organic gardens are effortlessly romantic, and the large manor provides a true historic estate aesthetic. Host your reception in the bright and beautiful pavilion. Or in a stunning tent that brings in plenty of light and views of the property. The resort itself was created to inspire connections to others, the outdoors, and the community, and your beautiful wedding will reflect those values.
Stone Tower Winery doesn’t just make fabulous wines; their incredible estate, planted with rolling hills of vineyards, is also a sensational wedding venue. Say “I do” overlooking their estate pond or in the production room of the winery surrounded by wooden casks and stainless steel tanks. Spend the rest of the night celebrating in their Vineyard View Ballroom, which your guests will enter through a winding tour of the winery’s barrels. The ballroom also has a huge adjoining terrace perfect for socializing by the fire and getting some fresh air (or use the terrace as your dance floor!)
These Northern Virginia wedding venues are perfect for unforgettable weddings. Take the time to visit a few in person and use the excuse for a sweet countryside getaway.
