Quality of Service

We had a lovely outdoor reception in the courtyard of Visitation. It was the weekend after their fall festival, and Kirsten offered us leftover hay bales as additional seating. That was just one of the many ways that Kirsten and her team at Visitation went above and beyond. The setting within the walls of a 19th-century school is incredibly unique and the bridal dressing area (in the nun dormitory wing) is just so charming. We fell in love with the building immediately upon our first visit (being history nuts) and liked the unique character of the railings and doorknobs and knot gardens.

Although this comes through as a review for our ceremony and reception venue, we actually were not able to hold our ceremony at Visitation since we are not Catholics. We were disappointed in that, but found a beautiful spot just down the block at the Frederick County Historical Society in their Heritage Garden. Guests were able to park at Visitation and walk between the venues. Not ideal, but worked out for us!

And last but not least, Kirsten was so wonderful to work with. She coordinated so much for us (tent, chairs, DJ and caterer set up, etc.) and really was flexible and responsive to every e-mail (or text) I sent. A delight to work with and I could not have had such a calm wedding and planning experience if not for her!
