The Story of Rixey Manor
Built in 1801, Rixey Manor was the beloved house of the Rixey family, and remained so through multiple generations till it was bought by its current caretakers in 2014.
It underwent a full restoration, and changed from a private residence into a custom built wedding venue. Our vision was to offer a totally unique, and relaxing experience for every couple who gets married on its historic grounds. One that is totally theirs for the whole weekend, allowing them to relax and experience every moment their wedding brings - surrounded day and night by those that they love the most, whilst under the care of an experienced and loving team.
We have proudly achieved our goals, winning multiple awards, and accolades - but most importantly by creating a new Rixey family - made up of dedicated staff, talented vendors, and the most exceptionally lovely couples.
The experience is only enhanced by our quaint local town of Culpeper. Only 10 miles from the Manor it has plenty of hotels, so your guests can be shuttled in luxury from their weekend accommodations, and spend their down time shopping the historic Davis street and eating in local award winning restaurants.
We want to welcome you into our family, as you start your journey on affirming the new family you are already building.
Our Weddings in Action
Our Couples Love Us (And We Love Them)!
I had basically picked Rixey before my now husband and I had even visited. I saw pictures of the venue and instantly thought that this could be "it". We only visited two vendors and still my mind was made up. I couldn't have asked for more with Rixey Manor. After COVID restrictions messed up our original wedding date of November 2020, the Rixey team worked with us to reschedule a new date at no extra cost to us. With everything onsite, it was perfect. I absolutely LOVE Rixey Manor. It made all my dreams come tru Quaid, Soup, and everyone else on the Rixey team, thank you for EVERYTHING you guys did. You and the Manor will always have a place in our hearts.
Where do we even begin. Rixey Manor was the absolute perfect wedding venue. Stop your search and reach out to Rixey right now. Rixey was actually our first venue tour, and when we met Quaid we knew our wedding was in the best hands. We were looking for an LGBTQ+ friendly venue, and Rixey was more than that. Not only did our vision come to life, but we were super comfortable, and fell in love with the manor. It is absolutely stunning, tucked away from the busy world, while being completely accessible to guests. They can transform Rixey into any wedding vision you have. They made our black tie event come to life. It was even more perfect than we imagined. Nothing was left out, every detail was attended to, and our friends and family had the best time. Rixey is our favorite home away from home. We could not recommend Rixey Manor more.
Rixey Manor is the whole package. Rehearsal dinner space, multiple ceremony sites, and overnight accommodations for immediate family and/or your bridal party. Plus, absolutely gorgeous views of the mountains. The venue itself is amazing, of course, but the real magic is the Rixey staff. The big day finally arrived in 2021, and it was PERFECT, again due to the amazing Rixey staff. Quaid helped keep all of our details and timeline organized and running smoothly; Grace and Mary helped find me gluten free food for breakfast when I forgot it at home, and even our bartenders helped flip the ballroom and pitched in wherever needed. My husband and I are so incredibly grateful to the entire Rixey staff for everything they’ve done for us. We would get married at Rixey again in a heartbeat.
Guests also experience the Rixey Manor magic.
We were guests at a wedding here in November and it was spectacular! The bride, groom and a few guests stayed at the venue Friday night which allowed us to attend that evening. We casually hung out as if it was our own home with our own personal barkeeper! We had access to the whole house and grounds which included the gorgeous manor (the tubs alone are enough to rent this space!), the views from the upper deck, a patio and fireplace and the cottage next door. We even got to feed the newborn calves with bottles! The staff are the most hospitable I have encountered as a guest, going above and beyond to make sure our visit was top knotch. Saturday we enjoyed food trucks outside, fire pit out back, casino tables throughout the house and even caricature artists in the parlor. It is definitely a venue perfect for a casual event or a fancy affair. Even without being the bride and groom, I could tell how easy the venue staff was to work with and how prepared they were to take every bit of stress away from the couple on their big day. Highly recommend!
