If I could give anyone throwing a wedding in the DC area a piece of advice it would be to book at Foxchase Manor! They hosted my wedding on June 18 and it was A+ service at an affordable price. I can't say enough good things!
Venue - First, the venue is absolutely gorgeous and breathtaking. The beautiful pillars on the exterior, paired with the gorgeous chandeliers and detailing on the interior make this one exquisite venue! It looks as gorgeous in person as it does in photos!
Quality of Service - Sammy and his team are extremely helpful and accommodating, willing to work with any budget or special requests you may have. His team was there to answer all of my questions and accommodate every request, even a last minute change to the floor plan and size of the DJ stage.
Value - Foxchase offers many different packages to accommodate any budget and I honestly think we got the most bang for a buck at this venue than we could anywhere else. I went with a full package including dinner, passed hors d'oeuvres, staff, bar service and table settings and linens. Unlike other venues, Chivari chairs and linens you can hand pick out are included in the venue price! Most other venues will tack on extra charges for these upgrades, but not Foxchase.
Food - Last but not least, the food. We had a full tasting with Sammy and his team of chefs about 60 days before the wedding (we had a buffet set up) and my family and I were blown away with how delicious and flavorful the food was! We know that there is a difference in cooking for 5 people and over 300 people, so we were blown away on the night of the wedding to discover the food was just as good, or even better (if that was even possible)! The menu offerings are plentiful and diverse, offering American, French and other ethnic cuisines. Everything was absolutely delicious! People kept saying it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding and I agree.
If I had to do it all again, I'd still pick Foxchase!

My husband and I held 3 events at Fox Chase for our wedding weekend. The team at Fox Chase has left me speechless. Their customer service isn't just customer service, it's genuine care. Our events were executed flawlessly by these talented people. My experience began when I was directed to Mr. Adil in Sales who had a very detailed meeting with me and gathered not only the essential information, but took it to the next level by asking me questions such as 'nice to haves' so he could deliver the best value for me. Not only did he deliver, he exceeded my families and my expectations but providing great value, a unique experience that was customized for my needs and the most positive and professional interactions. He spent countless hours customizing my wedding with me and finding me the best vendors to achieve our goal. He was simply perfect! After we signed our contract we were assigned what I like to call the dream team! I was initial approached by Helen who is the perfect first impression any business would love to have. She was kind and patient with me with my million phone calls and thousand questions. She also was kinda enough to stay a tad bit later and hold an emergency food tasting for us! (Phew, thanks Helen!) I don't want to say that I saved the best for last because everyone truly at Fox Chase is amazing but Penny, my coordinator really knows how to exceed expectations on a different level. Penny is by far my favorite person ever! Our wedding was far more than we even expected in our wildest dreams and it was only because of Penny. As a bride you know that you have your work cut out for you, well, with Penny, you drop it down to about 20%. She not only takes on every task and detail, she makes the best and most efficient suggestions. She really took the time to understand my vision and executed it beyond my expectations. Our wedding was perfect, from the food, to the customer service and quality, Fox Chase exceeded our expectations!

We had our wedding at Fox Chase on August 26, 2018 and it was nothing but perfect! We worked with Penny and I am forever grateful for all the work she did to make this a great wedding. Sammy is also amazing to work with. Everything was beyond what we expected and the planning process with Penny was exceptional. Overall I am happy with our wedding at fox chase and would recommend it to anybody searching for a venue as it is exceptional and has top notch service!
Foxchase Manor is one of our favorite venues to film a Wedding and/or a Reception. A beautiful locations for the ceremony, lots of room for the cocktail hour, and a very large and elegant ballroom for the reception. Whenever we are hired to film a wedding/reception at Foxchase Manor our videographers somewhat grapple to be assigned to film that Wedding. Our highest recommendation.
We serviced our first Bride at Foxchase Manor a few weeks ago and loved meeting Sammy and Iram.. she was so organized and nothing but calming for the bride. We love working with efficient and caring wedding pros and we can't wait to service more clients at this awesome venue!
This is a great location for a large bridal party and reception. They have several ball rooms and a lovely outdoor courtyard. I have had the pleasure of providing flowers for two events at this venue.
