About Highholdborne

Ultimate Wedding Destination in Virginia Wine and Hunt Country

The Highholdborne is a mansion in the Washington, D.C. area where couples can host their dream destination wedding. A white mansion perched atop a hill on a ranch serves as the venue for a couple’s big day in Virginia wine country. Even local couples will feel like they're on a weekend getaway at this venue located approximately 45 minutes from Dulles International Airport.

Facilities and Capacity
With guest lists of up to 500 welcome at this venue, couples can host weddings large or small at the Highholdborne. A total of 145 acres of property overlook miles of Virginia wine country. A popular outdoor ceremony spot features a backdrop of rolling hillsides, trees and blue skies. An open grassy field serves as the location for this ceremony, with a wooden rail fence of dark wood surrounding this field. This large white manor house with a balcony and portico also serve as an elegant and stately backdrop for ceremonies or wedding photos. Inside this mansion couples will find regal chandeliers of crystal and fireplaces with mirrors in gold frames hanging above the mantel. Large windows throughout the house let in natural light and give guests a stunning view of the surrounding property.

When it’s not hosting weddings, this venue serves as a working agricultural property with Hunt horses and Black Angus cows, Americana chickens and plenty of well-fed wildlife.

I can't begin to give enough praise about the venue and it's owner! June was fabulous from the get-go. Before I made the decision to book the venue, she treated me like part of the family, introducing me to her family and chatting with me like an old friend. After booking the venue, she connected with me via text, phone call, email, you name it to answer any questions, regardless of the time of day. She's a dream to work with and makes the bride truly feel like the princess I've always dreamed of feeling during this momentous time in my life. If she wasn't just a dream, the venue boasts STUNNING 360-degree views of the countryside and Blue Ridge Mountains. You feel like you're in your own slice of Heaven when you're standing on the front porch and staring out over the rolling hills. It's your own peaceful sanctuary-perfect for your wedding day. Speaking of sanctuary, Highholdborne isn't a wedding factory; they don't churn out wedding after wedding each day of the weekend like I've found a lot of other venues do. It's all about you, your day, and your happiness. June makes sure of that. She truly gives you a 5-star experience as every bride deserves. If you're looking for a personalized, breathtaking venue and team who truly care about making your wedding flawless, then go to June and Highholdborne. You won't regret it!! Thanks June for ALL that you've done. You've truly become a friend through it all :)
