    Beautiful wedding!

    Lightfoot was the perfect venue for our wedding. Carrie was responsive throughout the entire planning process. The wait staff was professional, friendly, and accommodating. Multiple guests said the food was the best wedding food they have ever had. The vibe of the restaurant is classy, timeless, and speaks for itself. My husband and I were so proud to host our guests here.

    We held our wedding reception at the Lightfoot Restaurant. There were 70 people in attendance that night. I would highly recommend it as a reception location if you are looking for a place in Leesburg, VA. It is a beautiful building that is so historic and charming on the inside, that you will get the wow factor without adding many other decorations. I cannot say enough about the food, and neither could our wedding guests. I am so impressed that the food I had during my tasting was exactly what was delivered to all of my guests. We included a raw bar during the cocktail hour and it was a hit. The cake was also DELICIOUS. I really appreciated that I didn't have to hire an outside baker to handle our cake, and it was so good that I think everyone ate it. My husband also was impressed by the beer selection. No Miller/Coors Light here. If you appreciate craft beers, you'll be happy to know that the Lightfoot offers their own Lightfoot Ale that is delicious. Overall, I was so happy to work with a venue that proved everything you need for a great night. The only other vendors I hired were a DJ and photographer, and I made the decorations myself. If you are looking for a reception space that is more unique than a hotel ballroom and offers WAY better food at a MUCH better price, be sure to check out the Lightfoot Restaurant.
