My daughter and her fiance' wanted get married in Virginia so that all our family could make it to the wedding. They were looking for a certain place that offered beauty, charm, freedom, flexibility, and uniqueness. They found it in Rixey! The venue is beautiful but not ostentatious; it is at once charming and cozy, and yet so elegant. I felt at home the minute I crossed the threshold into the lovingly restored old manor house. We never felt like we were being handled at a business.
They had a list of vendors that they often work with and that is who we used. The wedding was flawless as all the vendors knew each other and knew Rixey Manor. It was beautiful beyond words and friends and family said It was the best wedding they had been too.
When you book with Rixey, you join a community of future and past couples, and can leverage the community to answer questions about vendors, timelines, dessert ideas, and everything else you can think of. Another big thing to note is that we were planning this wedding from a state across the country, and took advantage of their recommended vendors which made the entire planning process much smoother because they handled some of the communications. Our biggest positive note: our number one priority was to have a relaxing yet exciting weekend with family and friends, and Rixey gave us the freedom to do that.
Everything about Rixey Manor was nothing but perfect. The venue is absolutely stunning. The views are amazing, and our guest raved about how beautiful the venue was all night.
As soon as we showed up for the first day of our wedding weekend I remember feeling all the worries and stress melt away knowing no matter what everything would be taken care if. Rixey Manor itself is a gorgeous venue. It was so nice being able to stay there the whole weekend and not have to go anywhere for the rehearsal dinner or brunch the morning after. I also loved that we had the freedom to plan our weekend how we wanted.
