You cannot beat the Wilson Farr House in Fairfax, VA for a wedding venue. First of all, the house has a ton of personality. It is extremely elegant and finely decorated, not to mention has such historic charm. Second, the house is EXTREMELY reasonably price for what you get. Renting a house from Fairfax Parks/Recreation costs at least twice what you pay for the Wilson Farr House. I think it was about $600 for 4 hours...and $150 for each additional hour. Third, you can use any caterer you choose. Fourth, you can bring in your own alcohol and do not need to get an alcohol license. Fifth, I only needed to rent a few bar tables...all of the other furniture was plenty of seating for our guests. Sixth, the set up was perfect for a cocktail style reception. We had 85 guests, and they all enjoyed mingling together inside and outside on the gorgeous deck. It was truly the highlight of the wedding, and all of our guests complimented the setting. Seventh, Holly was a true joy to work with. She handled all of the vendors coming to drop off and pick things up before/after the event. She was extremely patient during the many phone calls and showings...but she always answered all of my questions and did everything to make sure the event was perfect. Lastly, it was the picture perfect background for our photos.
The Farr House was the perfect setting for my dream wedding...and I will always treasure that day. Everyone in the Fairfax area should consider this as an event location. I've seen all of the options, and this one was truly the best!
Shirley's Catering knows this site very well and it is a great place to have an intimate event or a larger open house type of event. We love it here.
Teatime Delicacies, Inc. has worked the Farr House on numerous occasions and highly recommend this venue for weddings, anniversaries, holiday events. Beautifully decorated, with a lovely wrap around deck, the venue is as intimate as a lovely private home. With a full kitchen, you are able to provide a wide selection of catering options. The staff is delightful, there is ample parking, and it is conveniently located in Fairfax City.
The Farr House is a lovely historic house located right in the heart of Historic Fairfax City. The staff at Farr House are lovely to work with. Our carriages fit right into their atmosphere, and we enjoy working there.
