Cousiac Manor is absolutely amazing! My husband and I were married there on September 11 and it was a dream! Sydney and Stacy are not only incredibly easy to work with, but so welcoming to their guests as well. Sydney was our main point of contact, and a huge help in planning our day. She was quick to respond to emails and even has a preferred vendor list to help couples during the planning stages. She was even willing to do extra research for me when I was looking for a local bakery, and we could not be more thankful for all of her help!Sent on 10/03/2016
Cousiac allows you to use any outside vendor and has a list of its own rentals, including farm tables, whiskey barrels, linens, and extra lighting. The venue comes with bathrooms for guests, as well as separate dressing rooms for the bride and groom.
The farm itself is the most perfect backdrop. We were married under the magnolia trees with the Pamunkey river in the background and held our reception in the barn. Literally every guest asked the same question, "How did you ever find this place?!". It is the ideal setting for a wedding. Thank you Cousiac for making our wedding a fairytale come true!

If you are looking for a beautiful rustic venue with a view. The Cousiac Manor is the place for you!! There are many different options where you can get married. All while looking at the Pamunkey river. I've known Sydney and Stacey for years, they are very easy to work with, and will do everything they can to make you happy! I have been to a couple weddings and other events at this venue. When the day comes for me, I'll be saying "I do" at the Cousiac Manor.Sent on 01/09/2017

I honestly could not have picked a better venue then Cousiac Manor! They were very helpful with every question I had for them and very responsive. My original wedding date was postponed due to Hurricane Florence and they allowed me to reschedule my wedding a week later. During that time before I made the call for rescheduling they kept me up to date about the weather and their preparations for it which gave me so much relief and I never felt like I was in the dark with them. For a girl who grew up in the country this place absolutely made me feel like I was home.Sent on 10/09/2018
