    Literally the best

    We got compliments all night about how wonderful this historic venue was. Not only is it beautiful, but it's logistically great too. There are stylish spaces for brides and grooms (or brides and brides or grooms and grooms!) to get ready separately. Carleigh was a dream to work with and also super knowledgable about options in the Leesburg area for vendors and after party locations. We felt completely taken care of and were not stressed at all. The day of, everything was handled and we were able to just relax and enjoy! The courtyard is gorgeous, the tent is gorgeous, and the inside of the house is gorgeous, too. Our guests were raving about it all night. There are also multiple hotels within one mile, making it really easy for our out of town guests. We opted to hire a shuttle bus to run between the hotel and the venue and because the distance was so short, it was really affordable and easy to coordinate! Neal from Tuscarora Mill (catering vendor) was wonderful, too. He was very organized and responsive. Also flexible! We asked to edit the vegetarian entree and he made it happen no questions asked. I'm still getting compliments about the food from so many people! I've been to lots of weddings and this was top notch food. Dishes came out piping hot and were super tasty. Also- GET THE PIZZA DELIVERY! Love that Neal suggested and organized this. Having hot pizza delivered straight to the dance floor was a total hit. People were obsessed! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Birkby House. Our wedding was easy, fun, and SO beautiful. I had ZERO stress the entire day and it was entirely because the team over there is so on top of it. Literally perfect! Thank you!!!!!

    Birkby House

    Birkby House stole my heart from the moment I saw it! Between the beautiful decor and charm inside to the stunning patio and tent, it was an incredible venue! Carleigh and Kristin from Simply Royal Events for Day of Coordinating were absolutely amazing. They took charge of communicating with vendors, organizing the rehearsal and managing every aspect of the wedding day from processional, to making sure me and my now husband got a drink and a plate of food to ourselves before entering cocktail hour, to telling us when and where to be to stay on track but also allowing us to completely enjoy the night. I cannot say enough amazing things about Birkby House and it’s team. I would recommend this venue a thousand times over. It was the most perfect day.

    Birkby House's reply:

    Thank you Maddie for the kind words!!! It was our pleasure! So happy you enjoyed the day!!! We wish you both all the best xoxo

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.

Bellwether Events Bellwether Events Wedding Planners

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.
