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!

I highly recommend having your event at Foxchase! They went above and beyond working with me and my family. My sales rep was Sami, he was a great help and really accommodated for me and my family, and my venue rep was YOLANDA!!! Yolanda is simply AMAZING!!!! She worked with me to correct everything to the smallest detail and she was very responsive and keen to detail! My whole family loves her and I couldn't have asked for someone better to help me out! The venue is gorgeous! The food was amazing!! Very well cooked! Also the decor provided by the venue was just gorgeous and convenient because it saved me money with my decorators! The venue is very clean and very nice! I highly recommend this venue to anyone and everyone!

Dream Wedding Come True!
We had our wedding at Foxchase Manor and it was stunning! The venue itself really is quite beautiful and all of our guests commented on how breathtaking it was. The great thing about this venue is that it can really be a one stop shop. They provided our linens (which were all lovely), our food (which everyone raved about) and our white dance floor (an additional charge, but honestly worth it). There is no doubt that this venue will certainly wow guests. However, the real pleasure of having our wedding at Foxchase Manor was definitely the people. We worked closely with Penny and Hellen who both were great. Hellen was incredibly sweet and polite while handling all of our questions throughout the wedding planning process and during our tasting. Penny as a venue coordinator was awesome! She was direct and had a "make it happen" attitude. She is the type of person you can easily trust to make sure things happen as you want them for your big day. Which as a bride is incredibly reassuring. We had a lot of last minute decisions and updates (as is usually the case with weddings) and she handled each request promptly and with grace. She provided good feedback and really made me feel like the big day would be awesome. Both my husband and I really loved our wedding and a lot of that is a result of Penny, Hellen and the entire team at Foxchase. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
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.
