About Birkby House

A Remarkable Wedding Site

The Birkby House is a historic mansion in the greater Washington, D.C. area where couples can host a classic wedding. This mansion of bricks features numerous beautiful locations where couples can marry, including a white gazebo, a delicate tented space, and a stone-paved patio. This venue, located in the Northern Virginia area, is approximately a 45-minute drive to Arlington National Cemetery.

Facilities and Capacity
This lovely mansion venue, set upon a garden landscape, welcomes up to 200 guests for a couple’s big day. The brick facade of this house, with black shutters and white accents, makes a charming backdrop for wedding portraits or a ceremony. Couples can choose to hold their ceremony under the shade of the white gazebo or on the patio laid with stone underfoot. Shrubbery surrounds both of these romantic locations and the mansion is visible from either option. Receptions can then take place in the Birkby House’s grand flowing tent. This tent, made of delicate and airy fabric, features a paved flooring with bricks and cement, with a black and white checkerboard tile dance floor. Sparkling crystal chandeliers overhead add a touch of class to this space. The tent also offers open side spaces or plastic windows to let in natural light. The draped fabric overhead and all around makes for graceful wedding photographs.

Services Offered
The staff at this venue offers services to make couples feel like guests at their own wedding. These services allow them to sit back and relax, rather than fret over the details, large or small. Couples, who can use this venue for their bridal shower and engagement party in addition to their ceremony and reception, will find the following services and event items at the Birkby House:

  • Altar/arches
  • Audio equipment
  • Bridal suite
  • Chairs
  • Dance floor
  • Event rentals
  • Parking
  • Setup
  • Tables
  • Tents

Other Facilities
A bridal suite and groom’s suite are available for couples to use on the top floor of this historic mansion. The Bride’s Salon features a full-length mirror and closet tall enough for a wedding dress. A private bathroom and separate porch overlooking the gardens are also attached to this room. The Groom’s Suite includes a board room and sitting room with a private bathroom.

My husband and I just got married at the Birkby House this past weekend and all we can say is WOW! Carleigh and Kristin are both so organized, calm, and so sweet! They completely understood the vision for our wedding and they truly made our dreams come true on our wedding day! They are so personable and laid back and we have had several people in these last couple of days tell us our wedding was one of the most fun and beautiful weddings that they have been to. We HIGHLY recommend the Birkby House for any wedding!

We couldn't have asked for a better setting for our ceremony and reception! Carleigh was so sweet and accommodating throughout the entire process. Every question or concern was addressed quickly and professionally. Everything we needed (and didn't even know we needed) was provided to ensure that everyone had the perfect day. The grounds are breathtaking, the staff is super helpful, and it doesn't hurt that there are lots of bars within walking distance!

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.

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.

The Thomas Birkby House is a charming and versatile event space with a great Northern Virginia location. The beautiful gardens and historic buildings add some elegance to every event.

I really enjoy this venue! It's easy to setup so Djs love this place plus it's gorgeous! You just can't appreciate this property unless you visit it first. Everyone there is a delight to work with and they are some of the friendliest people in the business. I would highly recommend the Thomas Birkby House to any bride and groom looking for beauty, ease, and a friendly staff.
