There is a beautiful pool all surrounded by lush rolling farm landscapes and beautiful views in every direction. The venue is very easy to get to, less than 10 minutes from Leesburg, only 25 minutes from Dulles International Airport and 45 minutes from downtown DC.

Couples will enjoy a backdrop of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains that wrap from the west to the north and includes Sugarloaf Mountain clearly in the distance. The 45’x36’ Carriage House provides a cathedral ceiling and a gleaming white & seasoned wood interior where you can dial up the elegance or go with a more classic, rustic feel. The flexible interior is complemented by beautiful large sliding barn doors which open fully for a very open and airy feel.

    Shirley and Waldo were an excellent team to work

    Ian and I fell in love with Blue Hill within minutes of touring the venue, and there was no question in our minds that we would get married there.

    Shirley and Waldo were an excellent team to work with in the months leading up to our special day. Their experience in weddings was apparent in the open/frequent communication and organization throughout the process. They also accommodated our requests to visit the farm several times to discuss the big day’s details. Our vision played out exactly as we hoped, due in many ways to Shirley and Waldo’s dedication to making our dreams a reality.

    We envisioned a non-traditional wedding with a venue that made our day extra unique, and all we needed to do was add our personal touches, and Blue Hill Farm checked all the boxes. Everyone loved the ceremony on the front lawn, with a change of scenery for cocktail hour followed by the reception in the carriage house with a special bonfire in the back to keep warm and enjoy s'mores. However, the common feedback from ALL guests was how perfect our wedding day was, and we couldn’t have pictured it any other way.

    Blue Hill Farm B&B's reply:

    Thank you Megan, we felt the same way about you and Ian after we met you and were thrilled that it all came together over the past year. We loved the small touches you employed and all the little design twists such as your ceremony set up with flowers and no backdrop. We enjoyed getting to know you and your folks and were happy the weather stayed warm for early November even though we were prepared. Yogi sends his best to Hershey and we wish you both a happy holiday season and a great start to 2023. Please stay in touch!

    Best Decision Ever!

    This was the absolute perfect wedding venue! The site was beautiful, especially for our October 15th wedding when the fall colors were starting to appear. We loved being able to have our entire wedding, from getting ready in the morning to the ceremony to the reception in one place, and dancing out under the stars was the perfect way to end the night. Shirley and Waldo were amazing to work with and always available to answer our questions or work out the details of our special day. Shirley even cut flowers for our dining tables as a last-minute, perfect final touch on our decorations! Overall, we could not have asked for a better place to get married and our guests can't stop raving about how beautiful the wedding was!

Blue Hill Farm is a lovely new venue in Loudoun County! The beautifully manicured front terrace is an ideal ceremony location. Cocktail hour by the pool can move seamlessly into the carriage house for dinner or out to a big tented affair with sweeping views all around. Absolutely stunning! The best part about Blue Hill: Shirley and Waldo are a delight to work with. Friendly and accommodating, they truly go above and beyond to make one feel at home in their picturesque farm house.
