Perfect Planner and Problem Solver for the Most Stunning Venue
My husband and I selected Black Horse Inn as our wedding venue because we felt a warm connection to the owner. A few months before our wedding, Michele Debildt became the new owner and onsite wedding planner, and what a pleasant surprise this turned out to be! Michele made sure every detail from conversations with her predecessor were captured and ensured things ran smoothly on our big day. From finding my father the perfectly sized dress shirt to replace the one he forgot to pack for the big day, to working through multiple contingencies for the bizarre weather forecast in the days leading up to our wedding, to saving our ceremony when the shuttle transporting guests to our venue lost its muffler, Michele turned all of these unforeseen imperfections into perfect wedding day memories. Even better, we've enjoyed building a friendship with Michele, even exchanging holiday cards in the months since our wedding. It was so nice to work with someone who made me feel like a bride not only on the day of my wedding, but in the lead up and the months and weeks since!Sent on 02/06/2020

Black Horse Inn is more than lovely...it is the epitome of classic Virginia hunt country. This is one of the very best places to tie the knot if you the Virginia countryside and the charm of estate style weddings.

The Black Horse Inn near Warrenton, VA is about a perfect a venue for a wedding as could possibly be. Every detail of this location is meticulously maintained and beautiful. Owner Lynn and her staff are gracious and accommodating, making guests feel special. Located in a perfect setting with graceful views, there is - uniquely to only a few venues - plenty of room to move around, but close at hand so that everything is within easy reach. One of the many things prospective couples often miss is that the place where your guests will spend several hours should have a variety of places for them to enjoy (at Black Horse Inn, there is the ceremony patio, the main house, the cocktail hour patio, the beautiful banquet pavilion, and unique specialized rooms), without being to spread out. In this way, your guests are very comfortable. This is perfection.
