The Manor

Welcome to Rixey Manor, a majestic and historic wedding venue built in 1801. Our one-of-a-kind property can be completely customized to make your wedding day uniquely yours. We offer the exclusive use of our entire property for your special day, including our private suites (sleeping up to 14 people), offering all the modern comforts of home. Not to mention, if you have a furry friend, we are pet-friendly! Our unique space will make you and your guests feel like they’re home away from home, enjoying a charming house party with all the intimacy and warmth you could wish for.

The Suites

Our wedding venue offers four tastefully decorated suites, each with their own unique charm. Cozy up in one of our comfortable king-sized beds or indulge in a soak in one of our luxurious bath tubs. We also include a separate cottage with two additional bedrooms and a full kitchen. 

The Newlywed Suite is designed with your special day in mind. With fantastic lighting for hair and makeup, you'll step out and shine on your wedding day. The room is decorated with understated elegance and boasts a four poster bed and a 360 degree mirror. These features make it the ideal location to not only get ready, but also capture the perfect shots for your wedding album.

Simplicity and charm meet at our Blacksmith Cottage, set against a picturesque countryside backdrop. Its modern interior is nestled within a beautifully preserved historic building. Perfect for the other member of the couple to get ready, or as an extra space for a babysitter and younger guests. It has cornhole boards, full kitchen, and a picnic bench which can make a great beer pong table. 

The History

Founded on 15,000 acres and gifted to the Rixeys after the Revolutionary War, Rixey Manor was historically a pig farm, and we’re proud of this unique history. Isadora purchased it in 2014 and opened it as a wedding venue a year later. We understand the complexity and significance of our history. While we honor those who built it, we can't rewrite it, so we strive to make the original owners roll over in their graves with how inclusive and welcoming our venue is today. We offer a safe and loving space for all couples to celebrate their special day, regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation. 

If you studied at Marymount University, the name Rixey would be familiar. The campus's cornerstone building is known as the Rixey House. Learn more about the distinguished Rixey founder here, and it's easy to see where he got his inspiration. 

If you are more into sports than Presidential doctors, Eppa Rixey, a baseball Hall of Famer, was also born here in Culpeper!
