This venue provides a special, historic atmosphere for your wedding. The grounds are beautifully maintained, and provide a gorgeous setting for your ceremony and cocktail reception. The tent, conveniently located next to the courtyard, is perfect for your dinner reception and dancing. Their staff will take great care of you and your guests, and will ensure the vendors you use are first-rate.
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.
