The Manor is one of the oldest venues in the country to be open to not only the wedding party, but the wedding guests, children and furry friends
The Library has a great selection of (color coded) books, but it also has a TV with all the sports channels, working fireplace and a Restoration Hardware sofa the size of a twin bed.
The dining room is a wonderfully versatile room hosting everything from breakfast, to the buffet, and some epic dessert bars.
A favorite with the Gentlemen the cottage sleeps 6, has vintage video games, and a full kitchen.
Our Rooftop over looking the Blue Ridge can be tented, so even if the weather is not Plan A, there is no reason to get married inside!
The stone Patio can seat up to 250 people, under a 40 X 70 tent. So it's perfect for larger weddings.
If your wedding is small it can still make for fabulous al fresco dining for your rehearsal dinner, brunch or the wedding itself.
Pets are part of the family too and at Rixey Manor we love it when a couple includes their dogs, cats or even horses.
First Looks on The Flower Path
First looks may be a newer tradition but we find that our flower path means they are unique, private and totally magical.
Our Ballroom is a new addition - allowing for all the modern amenities, such as ADA bathrooms and great heat and AC - that opens into the bar.
It has great natural light, white on white decor, with a hardwood floor, and dozens of crystal chandeliers
The Sitting Room
Or The White Room.
This is a quiet room at the Manor, even when the music is blasting in the Ballroom guests who are looking for a relaxing retreat can find it here. It also has access to two further restrooms.
Ground Zero for you Vendor team - weekend guests have access to the kitchen for cooking, and socializing. For all our Wedding Parties is comes stacked with snacks and comfort food.
Ceremony and Outside Options
We have several ceremony options to handle a variety of different Virginia weathers at all times of the year.
If you do want to be inside for your ceremony our ballroom can seat 200 and can be flipped in less than an hour for dinner.
Most of the time the rooftop is set with out (included) patio furniture. It is perfect for cocktail hour, or after wedding scotch and cigars.
Our horses are one of the great guest and couple draw. Friendly, photogenic and happy to be involved they can make for some great pictures and sweet stories
Total Peace, Quiet and Privacy
Celebrate in paradise. No neighbors, members of the public, or eyesores. Every inch of the Manor is designed for you and your guest to relax, catch up and feel at home.
Wet Bar With Taps
Our wet bar has all the practical things you need from a bar - a bottle fridge, three taps (with a keg system in the basement) and glassware included.
It's at the heart of the Manor, literally and figuratively. There are five doors to access it from all over the building, and creates a great late night party vibe.
The sweeping antebellum staircase makes for a stunning entrance for the wedding party. And directly joins all of the spaces with the bar.
All packages include the bedrooms at the Manor for dressing and hair and makeup. If you choose to rent them overnight, or for the whole weekend there are four large bedrooms, and bathrooms upstairs - renting for the night allows to a totally wedding experience.
With The Manor one way and the Rixey Lake the other this is the favorite spot for a ceremony. We can easily seat 220 people, it is accessible to everyone, and in the Fall the colors are amazing.
Rooftop at Night
A Very popular Winter option is the rooftop at Sunset. With the overhead lights, dramatic mountain views, it's an option that leaves everyone talking.
Among a host of great photo opportunities, the butterfly garden is a new favorite. Specifically planted so that in the height of summer it is full of lush color.
Donated by a Bride the Swing is an amazing addition for guests to take Instagram worthy pictures on, as well as for you to take amazing pro photos.
