THIS PLACE WAS EVERYTHING I WANTED! It was a perfect garden wedding with added character from an amazing historic home. Fantastic for photos, there were so many different backdrops that there is something everyone would like. We invited about 150 people and it didn't feel crowded. The outdoor space was beautifully green and we honestly didn't have to add much to make it everything i wanted in a wedding venue. The tables and chairs were included in the space whhich saved us oodles of money. The women organizing everything (Carliegh and Kristen) were so responsive and helpful and generally fun to be around. They didn't bat an eye when we asked to bury a bottle of burbon on sight and only hesitiated slightly when we said we wanted to throw a hammer around for a lawn game called stump. They are so organized and relaxed it really put me and my family at ease!

Amazing venue. Everywhere you look is a stunning scenic backdrop for pictures. It was a pleasure working with Carleigh and Kristin. They were so on top of it. Highly recommend if you are looking for the perfect wedding venue.

We looked at many venues in the Leesburg area, but Birkby House was a hidden gem. The inside of the house is beautiful and gives off a great vintage feel. The back of the house opens into a beautiful patio garden area which leads to a beautiful tent with chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. In addition to the venue being beautiful, the staff were absolutely wonderful to work with. We had to do our wedding planning from overseas, but they were so good to get back to us right away whether it be over the phone, email, or a meeting in person. Carlieigh in particular worked hard to make sure everything went as smoothly as possible and gave great advice having planned so many weddings on the premises. (Our wedding party was quite small, only about 50 guests, but they can easily accommodate much larger parties.) We are so pleased we chose Birkby House for our venue!

I can't say enough nice things about the Birkby House!! The grounds were beautiful and extremely well maintained, the staff was super accommodating and pleasant to work with, and it had all the amenities our guests needed ...and then some! The space has a lot to offer, with both indoor and outdoor seating, a gazebo, a romantic tented area, modern, fully-stocked bridal suites (the en suite bathroom even has heated floors!!!), lawn games, etc. Our guests kept gushing about how beautiful the venue was for days after the event. I would book the Birkby House again and again in a heartbeat! It's also worth mentioning that we retained the day-of coordination services that are offered through Simply Royal Events, which Carleigh and Kristin (who also oversee the Birkby House) offer. --They were spectacular. I didn't have to think about any of the little details on the big day. They only asked for my input when something major happened (an important guest was running late), and they totally took care of it. I gave them very little direction of what I was looking for (basically just told them "no rustic decor"), but they still managed to execute a beautiful wedding that was totally my style! If you are interested in coordination services, then I definitely recommend you go with Carleigh and Kristin. They know the space and vendors very well, and have a great eye for design! Actually, even if you aren't interested in coordination services, you should look into them. (My husband wasn't crazy about the idea, but now he doesn't know what we would have done if we DIDN'T hire them!)

My husband and I absolutely loved having our reception at the Birkby House. I grew up in Leesburg going to the Birkby House with my mother and always knew this is where I would get married. They made my dreams comes true. The staff was great to work with especially our onsite coordinator Carleigh Malone. She let myself and my bridesmaids use the Bridal Suite all morning and all day to get ready which went above and beyond what is normally offered at the venue. The entire Malone family has impeccable taste and anything they touch truly turns to gold. I would not only recommend using this venue but also their preferred caterer Tuscarora Mill. We couldn't have asked for a better team to make our wedding a glowing success. As a bride and a wedding planner this venue is top notch and worth a site visit at least!!

My daughter and I looked at three very different wedding venues (The Birkby House and two wineries) 15 months out from the May 2017 outdoor wedding we planned. The Birkby House checked all the boxes, it was in Virginia, just outside of the Beltway, close to several hotels so our guests had different price point choices, a lovely historic home with a bride and groom suite for the wedding party to use) that was off of the main thoroughfare which had been lovingly renovated where the bride and groom could stand on the back balcony overlooking their guests in a beautiful garden setting with a gazebo, coy pond, grass and the original carriage house cleverly hidden behind a wrought iron gate and high hedges decorated with twinkling lights where at the very back is a 50x60 ft. white tent with a tufted ceiling and chandeliers that illuminate the large dance floor and seating for over seated 150+ guests. The owners of the Birkby House also own the Tuscarora Mill restaurant in downtown Leesburg. Tuskies as it's known to locals offers a wide variety of reception fare from finger food to plated and buffet. Because we chose Tuskies as our caterer we received a significant reduction in the cost of renting The Birkby House. There aren't enough adjectives to describe our experience working with Carleigh Malone, her family and the vendors on their recommended list. They were cordial, professional, communicative, responsive and gave us some wonderful insight and suggestions, many of which we acted upon and helped to make the day that much more unique and thoughtful for the bride and groom and their guests.

My husband and I absolutely loved having our wedding at the Birkby House. The venue is beautiful, quaint, and just perfect for an intimate wedding. Carleigh and Kristin were wonderful to work with - from booking the venue to hiring them as our day of coordinators. They were responsive to ALL our questions (no matter how trivial they were), full of ideas, offered recommendations for everything we asked, set all our décor up beautifully, were there for us all day during our wedding, and helped execute our wedding perfectly. My husband and I are so thankful we had our wedding here - our guests loved the venue too. I do not have enough kind words to say about the Birkby, it definitely was perfect for our wedding! Also, the bridal suite was just amazing! It is set-up to accommodate all the hustle and bustle of the bride and her party. The groom also has a separate area to get ready in with his entourage without paths needing to be crossed. The courtyard is beautifully manicured and the tent is just perfect for the reception and/or contingent rain option!

Beautiful space, inside and out! We used Birkby House for both our wedding and our rehearsal dinner. It rained the day of the wedding, so we moved the ceremony into the tent. Carleigh and the staff did an awesome job making the tent look beautiful for both the ceremony and the reception. Tuscarora Mill catered, and our guests are still raving about the food, nearly two months later! The space is really versatile – there's the tent, the courtyard, the house, and the patio and gazebo area. This meant our rehearsal dinner (an outdoor cocktail party) looked and felt totally different from our wedding. Highly recommend using the venue for your whole wedding weekend! Awesome venue, and great staff. Carleigh (at Birkby) and Jonathan (at Tuscarora Mill) were a dream to work with! Super responsive and helpful.

The Thomas Birkby House was the perfect venue for our late October wedding. The grounds are so beautifully manicured and the colors are gorgeous with little need to dress anything up. We were able to get ready in the house itself (they have beautiful bridal and groom suites that are conveniently separated to avoid seeing each other before planned) and utilized the downstairs to entertain early guests. Our bar was to be setup on the patio in the backyard, but due to weather we had to move the entire event under the large reception tent. The staff made all of this happen with no disruption and our guests were none the wiser that it was supposed to be setup differently in the first place. The venue is a beautiful setting for photos, offering diverse textures and backgrounds to capture stunning pictures of both large and small groups, without having to leave the property. The venue has various tables and chairs available for your use, which offers savings on rentals. You can also bring your own alcohol which saved us hundreds of dollars. The large tent stands on the property year round and is perfect for a reception in any weather because you can pull the flaps back to be open if the weather is nice, or close them to keep out wind and rain. It made our whole day since we had unexpected winds of 40+MPH. We had 13 tables seating 110 guests, a sweet heart table, double sided buffet, DJ setup, dance floor, and large bar under the tent and there was plenty of room for everything. Costs were clear and everything was very fair. We loved the venue and the staff and are so happy they hosted our big day!!

The Birkby House is the perfect place to hold a wedding. The grounds are gorgeous and the house is beautiful inside and out. We fell in love with The Birkby House and immediately booked our wedding. Being able to hold the ceremony and reception in one place was a big plus and there are multiple options for ceremony locations on the grounds. The venue is incredibly beautiful and there are so many cute places to take pictures for guests and the couple. The Birkby House also provides amenities inside the house for the bride and groom. The Bride’s suite is a comfortable and calming space to get ready before the wedding and the Groom’s suite is a neat guy’s hangout. The Birkby House staff is also very helpful with planning and organizing. We are so happy that we held our wedding at the Birkby House.

We had the most perfect wedding and reception. Ron and Judy are true professionals and are amazing to work with. Their attention to detail and coordination resulted in a flawless day! The house and surrounding garden and tent are simply beautiful.
