    LOVE Birkby House - My Dream Wedding

    The first time I toured Birkby House I instantly knew it would be the perfect spot for my garden style brunch wedding. The grounds and the tent are so gorgeous I had to do very minimal decorating, I let the beautiful grounds be my back drop. I can not say enough good things about Carleigh and Kristin as wedding coordinators. Carleigh truly saved the day when my hair and make up lady was two hours late and found someone local to help do makeup for my MOH, Mom, and I, and she did a fantastic job! Kristin was beyond helpful throughout the entire process and so easy to communicate with and ask questions. She made sure my fiance and I had drinks, appetizers, and were comfortable throughout the entire day. She even helped me out of my veil and bustled my dress! She kept everything on track so that we could enjoy each moment we had planned. After the ceremony they were incredibly helpful helping my Mom pack up all of our belongings and get them in the car. These ladies are amazing at what they do and you can tell they just genuinely love it. Its a family business and they are just great people. My guests had a blast and I received so many compliments on how beautiful and classy the wedding venue was. I wish I could relive my wedding day 100x over, and I would do it at Birkby House every time.

    Perfect Venue!

    We searched and searched for the right venue for our wedding, and landed on the Thomas Birkby House - and we could not have been happier! The venue includes a house, beautiful garden and patio, and climate controlled tent. All three of these locations are beautiful in their own right, and the mix of atmosphere's kept things interesting! In the house there is a beautiful space for the bridal party to get ready and a separate space for the groomsmen to hang out. There are also three spacious rooms on the main level, two that we used as an extension to our cocktail hour on the patio (after all, it was 100 degrees), and one that we had a table for cards and gifts and a table for our guest book. Each space is so beautiful. Outside there is a large patio with beautiful arbor to get married under, and a spacious yard and space by the house for cocktail hour. The tent is also spacious and climate controlled. Our summer wedding was bright, whimsical, and elegant thanks to Birkby House's beauty. The staff there is AMAZING and i can't say enough about how responsive they were over email and the day of. Cannot recommend enough for that indoor/outdoor wedding vibe!

    The folks at Thomas Birkby House are true professionals with a unique property surrounded by wonderful photo locations. It's a convenient and great location for your wedding. One of our favorite venues.

    The Thomas Birkby House is my favorite venue in Virginia. Ron, Judy and Mary Louise take pride in their property, and don't view it as a wedding factory, like other venues do. They are really invested in each event, making sure that the client has a great experience, and assisting the vendors who come through their doors. I can't recommend the Thomas Birkby House highly enough for your next event.
