a note from the owners - Ben and Isadora
Welcome to Rixey Manor, we are so glad you found us.
We opened the Manor in 2015, and got married here ourselves. We aim to provide a classic, and elegant venue, but one that feels like home. One of our favorite things is when we see our couples, and guests curled up on the sofa with a cup of coffee, or a pup passed out on the front porch.
We originally opened as a full weekend venue, offering the couples help, coordination, and vendor recommendations. Over the years we grew to host bridal boot camps, built complete wedding packages and a great 'Something Borrowed' building - where couples can 'shop' for all the things they may want for their weddings.
While we have developed and changed, the heart, ethical values, and love that we have imbued into every wedding and event has not. It is the thing we are most proud of, and why every 5* review makes our soul sing.
We hope to show you who we are, what the Manor has to offer, and hopefully ease a little bit of that wedding worry the moment you walk through the door.
"If you’re looking for stress free wedding planning and a stress free wedding day — Rixey Manor is that place! " - A Bride
Mary started her relationship with Rixey Manor when she officiated a ceremony of a Rixey couple back in 2015. She was immediately a favorite both with the couples, for her sweet and personal touch, and vendors for her reliability and flexibility. Fast forward a few years and Ben and Isadora found themselves looking for a new coordinator to help them maintain the high standards they had set - Mary was an obvious choice.
There is no one more caring, or dedicated to her couples than Mary is. She allows her own unique, and slightly kooky personality (she is a Burning Man Alumni after all) to encourage couples to be true to themselves. As the icing on the cake that is Mary, her recently retired Veteran husband also gives her a very personal insight into the lives of our Military couples.

Grace joined the Rixey Manor team four years ago. She was brought in initially to help with keeping the Manor at the highest standards. Her role has grown, due to her dedication and loyalty. She now looks after all aspects of the property, and coordinates (along with Mary) mid-week events, and acts as a vendor liaison for couples when necessary.
Married to a local farmer and veteran she is wonderful as a go to for all things Virginian. She wears multiple hats and has in the past helped our couples out with everything from staffing their food trucks, to taking care of their children - she has even looked after our brides horses - whatever the job calls for Grace jumps in to make it run smoothly.
