Woodlawn was the PERFECT place for our dream wedding. When we saw the venue online we loved it, and when we saw it in person we knew we had to have it! We had both our ceremony and reception at Woodlawn and it was absolutely breathtaking. You can have your ceremony anywhere on the outside property but the backdrop of the house is amazing. The cocktail hour space is so romantic and the reception tent doesn't even compare to other reception tents. Kathleen and her staff did a wonderful job guiding us through the planning process and our wedding day. We had a rain plan in place that we were happy with but luckily did not have to use. I would absolutely recommend getting married at this amazing venue!

This venue was gorgeous and really was a fairy tale setting for our perfect day. I must say that Rouge Catering did an unbelievable job making our wedding day perfect. The food was not only fabulous but the customer service and going above and beyond really set them apart. We would recommend this company to anyone looking to have an amazing wedding!

Absolute perfection. The wedding of my dreams. I loved working with the team at Woodlawn and they made my vision for our big day come alive. The perfect space for that outdoor glam feel, without the fear of a rain contingency. There is so much space to work with here and a fantastic wedding reception venue. I can't imagine our celebration anywhere else.

Using Woodlawn Plantation and Pope-Leighey House for my daughter's wedding far surpassed my expectations. From the first time I viewed the property until the last good-bye on the night of the wedding, everyone I encountered was professional, organized, and helpful. The venue is gorgeous and spacious, allowing plenty of room for guests to move throughout the property. As an extra bonus, the crepe myrtles were in full, glorious bloom, creating a lush canopy for the wedding ceremony. The tent is large and beautiful, creating a romantic yet accessible space for dinner and dancing. This gorgeous venue is a perfect setting for both your wedding and reception and i will recommend to anyone I know.

Woodlawn is run by a trust so you don't have to deal with Woodlawn too much. Their dedicated caterer takes care of most of the wedding-related stuff for you. The staff at Woodlawn when we did have to deal with them was wonderful. We received great reviews of the tours they held during our reception. The inside of the house was clean and everyone was very professional. We were very glad that we had our ceremony and reception there. It rained A LOT days before our wedding. It was drizzling a bit the day of and the back stairs were wet and since they are marble, they were a bit slippery which I heard later was an issue for one of my guests but that comes w/ the venue I guess. Overall, everything was beautiful and the service that was provided was excellent. Not to mention, we get to go back to our venue.

Woodlawn is an amazing site. It is locating on top of a hill with beautiful trees and gardens. The house is historical and offered a tour to guests before the reception began. It was enchanting evening, almost like being at an English manor. Stacey Hawkins is extremely easy to work with and did an outstanding job. She was professional and worked well with other vendors. I would highly recommend this site!!

Woodlawn was an AMAZING venue. We really wanted to stay away from hotels and golf courses and have our reception at a place that would celebrate Virginia history and was a bit more unique, Woodlawn was it! It was the second place we checked out and we fell in love with it. The house remains opens for tours during the reception which is really a nice touch especially for out of town guests. The grounds are open just for your guests as well to walk around. We had our cocktail hour in the garden with the fountain and the tent in the nearby lawn. The staff was incredibly helpful, Stacey was SO great to work with and everything ran without a hitch the day of. They do have a list of recommended vendors which was useful so you weren't searching aimlessly for vendors and the ones they recommended were familiar with the site so there no worries about them finding it, how to set up, etc. FYI: I think they book up pretty far in advance, especially for spring and summer. We booked it a year and a half before the wedding.

Rouge was fantastic! The quality of food was stellar, and all our guests raved over how good everything was. Maykala and crew were there when we needed them, without having to ask. That says alot. Couldn't be happier with them and how everything turned out. Thank you Rouge!

Woodlawn was an amazing venue for our September wedding! We had 215 guests and wanted an outdoor wedding. From the beginning, the wedding coordinator, Meredith, was responsive, helpful and friendly. The back story of the property is fascinating, and it fit perfectly with our desire for a unique location that celebrates Virginia and American history. The mansion itself and the surrounding grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. The particularly interesting part of a wedding at Woodlawn is the ability to use all the different areas around the mansion - We had guests come through the house when they arrived, were married on the back lawn overlooking the valley and Potomac River, had our cocktail hour in the fountain court yard, and then dinner and dancing under a tent by the trees. Our guests said they loved moving from area to area, as if they were at a garden party at a private estate, and absolutely raved about the beauty and history of Woodlawn. The facilities accommodated our large group well - there weren't any bugs, the restrooms are clean and adequate, and there's two large suites in which the bridal party can get ready. I'll also add that the docents, who gave our guests tours of the house before the ceremony and during cocktail hour, were so sweet and helpful. There are only two downsides to Woodlawn to consider: 1) There aren't really any options for an indoor ceremony in case of rain; and 2) it's on the National Register of Historic Places, so there are some strict rules about what is allowed - for instance, no open flames at all on the property (which meant no unity candle for sparklers for us, although we were able to have a cigar bar!) and limited photography inside the mansion. Nevertheless, we found Meredith and the Woodlawn staff to be very flexible and willing to work with us to find alternatives, and none of the rules detracted from our wedding what so ever! Bottom line: get married here! Don't even think twice!

Woodlawn was a beautiful setting for our late September wedding ceremony & reception. All of our guests raved about the estate. We signed the contract with Woodlawn before the venue signed an exclusive catering contract with Star Catering and the multiple changes in points of contact while that change went through was a bit frustrating. Thankfully it all worked out in the end and we liked working with our final event managers, and they honored and worked well with our caterer and other vendors. I think the new relationship will work well for anyone who signs contracts going forward. The only big con is that Woodlawn doesn't really have any indoor space in case of rain- we had a reception tent and ended up with a backup tent for the reception & lots of umbrellas since it looked like rain right up until that day. We lucked out, but it would've made for a soggy evening if it had indeed rained.
