Loved working with Moriah! The venue is stunning - even on an overcast day. Moriah walked us through everything every step of the way, dealt with all the small snafus, kept an eye on the weather and we managed to pull of the garden ceremony even with the threat of rain by checking the doplar radar. We lucked out that the ceremony time was in a gap between the rain clouds. Everything was perfect! I could not recommend Oatlands or Moriah more highly!

Do not work with anyone other than Moriah Lemming. (mlemming@oatlands.org) She truly made the dreams come true up to and including the wedding day when April showers came and went. Her sense of urgency, immediacy and compassion was un-measurable. Working with a reverse destination global wedding party, she didn't miss a beat! We could not have done it without her.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Moriah at Oatlands Historic House & Gardens. Moriah was nothing short of amazing. She was professional, detailed, responsive, helpful, kind, and truly incredible for the entire wedding planning process from start to finish. Moriah made our day go smoothly, calmed our nerves knowing that everything was okay and taken care of on our special day. She dealt with all of our vendors, helped wherever she could, and our ceremony & reception was flawless. We are so very grateful for Moriah and Oatlands. It was the PERFECT venue and absolutely BEAUTIFUL. I could not imagine a more beautiful place to be married. Our day was perfect. The weather was perfect. The setting was incredible. I will forever remember our special day and am so thankful that we chose Oatlands as our venue. Thank you Moriah for being truly amazing - we are beyond grateful for you and blessed to have met you!

If I could write a book on how much I love Oatlands and the people who work there, I would. They made sure my wedding went perfrectly, even when we were hit with a million obstacles. My outdoor wedding was planned so well and on the day of it rained so hard. I was so scared that everything was ruined but they not only calmed me, they set up the tent so beautifully and ran through the rain with me on my portraits, getting completely soaked, trying to keep me dry. They went above and beyond, especially Moriah. She is just the best.

My dream wedding just came true. The first time I saw Oatlands was with my mom, not my fiance, and it was an instant love affair. I took my fiance back the next day and we knew that was it. Oatlands fulfilled all our desires: near a big city (DC) for out of town guests, on a beautiful estate, private, sophisticated, outdoor...the list goes on. But even better, our wedding surpassed all our dreams, and was truly magical. Throughout the process, Sandy Perla (Oatland's site coordinator) was available to answer questions, and provide recommendations. Every vendor she suggested was an 11 out of 10 and on the day of the event, every detail went off without a hitch. Oatlands provides almost too many beautiful backdrops for wedding photos (what a terrible problem to have right?!) and we had no trouble finding location after location for both the first look pictures, as well as more of the group shots. We were blessed with beautiful blue skies (although it did rain in the morning and threatened in the forecast all week!) and my husband and I said I do in the most beautiful gardens surrounded by our closest friends and family. The partying continued all night, the dance floor was full besides when people were eating. My husband and I escaped for a private dinner in the gardens, including a little bunny who was nibbling his dinner next to us in the grass besides the boxwoods and babbling lily pond. Sound too amazing to be true? Well it all was possible at Oatlands!

We just got married at Oatlands and everything was absolutely gorgeous. Sandy and her staff were amazing and did a wonderful job the entire night. We had our ceremony in the bottom garden, cocktail hour in the upper gardens and then a tent for the reception next to the house. It was pouring rain right before we were supposed to start, but luckily we just pushed everything back 30 minutes and it stopped and it was beautiful! The staff was very accommodating and we were able to get the wedding of our dreams. We can't wait to go back for events throughout the year and remember the best day of our lives!

Oatlands is one of the most beautiful wedding venues in the Washington, DC area. We felt so lucky to get married there. After having our original venue doublebook our date, we had to scramble to find a new venue just three months before our wedding and fortunately Oatlands had our day available. Andrea, Regan and the whole team were incredibly flexible in helping us make the switch and accommodating vendors we had already booked. While it looks at first like they have a lot of restrictions in the contract, many are actually quite standard and I actually felt like it was helpful to have everything outlined up front rather than have surprises later in the process. Our guests all raved about the venue. There were so many places for them to explore and for us to take photos. The only drawback at Oatlands is that there is no real rain option, other than having everything under a tent. But that's a risk with all outdoor wedding spaces.

We celebrated our rehearsal dinner in the Carriage House at Oatlands. It was just perfect. The location is so beautiful and they are easy to work with. Would definitely recommend any bride to use them in the future. Best Susanna & David Baxter

Oatlands is a beautiful venue for your wedding! My husband and I fell in love with the venue and booked it over a year in advance. It was exactly what we had envisioned for our wedding reception. We did our cocktail hour in the beautiful, terraced gardens and our reception (180 people) was under a tent on the lawn outside the manor house. When we started the process, Abbey Lupien was the Special Events Manager, but a few months before our wedding Aimee Eddington took over as Special Events Manager with her assistant Rachel Blevins. The change was flawless, which was amazing in itself! Abbey did a great job at the start of the planning and Aimee picked right up where she left off and carried through for a perfectly executed event. Both ladies were flexible, accommodating, and helpful in making our day turn out exactly as we planned. Aimee was really great leading up to the wedding and especially the day of, acting almost like a day of wedding planner and helping everything run smoothly. She and Rachel were there to help with everything from helping us unload our U-Haul with supplies, to setting things up, and managing our various vendors. She even provided a much needed boost of positive encouragement when the weather forecast was showing 40% rain the day before my wedding (and she was right - the rain stayed away!). I was beyond happy with Oatlands as a venue and with Abbey, Aimee, and Rachel as event managers. I would highly recommend this venue for your wedding day!

I don't know where to begin! My wedding at Oatlands was beyond fabulous, and it would not have come together so smoothly without the help of Abbey Lupien. Abbey was friendly, responsive and super helpful throughout the planning process. As a Virginia native, I can't imagine a more beautiful location for a wedding than Oatlands Plantation. Thank you Oatlands!

Oatlands is the most beautiful wedding venue!!!! We visited about 5 venues in total - and we knew that Oatlands was the one from the moment we set foot. (even in the dead of winter). We just knew how gorgeous it would be for a September wedding....AND IT WAS! All of our guests commented on how amazingly beautiful the venue/gardens were. We couldn't be more pleased. Our photos are AMAZING due to the wonderful backdrop that Oatlands provides....the options are endless for great photography! Working with Abbey was such a breeze - she was one of the best vendors we worked with and we felt calm knowing that Abbey would ensure everything was taken care of. She even replied to my email that I sent the day of the wedding! We highly recommend Oatlands - and if you visit you'll see why. Truly stunning, romantic, classy.... Oatlands is a show stopper.

I had dreamed of getting married at Oatlands for an embarrassing amount of time. When I was little, my parents took my sister & I for a tour, and we spent what seemed like hours exploring & playing hide-and-go-seek in the gardens, so I was hooked early on. When my now-husband & I got engaged, we looked at a few other venues just to be sure, but knew Oatlands was definitely 'the place'. The gardens are amazing, the historic house is great for touring, and the tent reception is pretty magical being surrounded by the rolling hills of Leesburg. We were 'lucky' to have rain on our wedding day, so we needed to move the ceremony & cocktail hour under the tent. While I was a bit disappointed, everything was executed seamlessly, and our guests still had an amazing time. Abbey worked with my mom more than me since I live & work in NY, although my mom loves her & from my interactions she was great. She is so sweet, very quick to respond to any questions/comments, and open to any thoughts we had - all very important when working with a venues' coordinator! I can't imagine a more perfect place for a beautiful Virginia wedding!
