    Beautiful Cottage and Gardens

    Cliff and Joy were the best hosts. They did so much to help us make our wedding perfect. The cottage and grounds are amazing and make for great pictures. They have the most beautiful place for an outside wedding. They really did go above and beyond. The little touches like the small flower vases with fresh flowers and the driveway with torches that Cliff lit once it was dark. We cant imagine our wedding anywhere else. They made it so special!!!

    Gorgeous location!

    I had the pleasure to photograph a fall wedding at Lightwood House. It is a beautiful venue with lots of stunning spots for memorable images. The interior of the house offers gorgeous window light and elegant interiors. The owners were incredibly helpful and attentive. As a photographer and fellow vendor I could not ask for more. Thank you for such a perfect experience.

    The perfect venue!

    We got married at Lightwood House October 2019, and everything could not have gone better. I had met Cliff while he was working as a balladeer at Colonial Williamsburg and when he mentioned having an 18th century home, I knew I needed to visit. We made the choice to book Lightwood for our special day without my wife even seeing the place in person and my single visit. Upon our arrival for the wedding weekend, the magic and wonder of Lightwood House and the property was evident to her immediately and she was enchanted from the first. Guests needed to travel from afar as we have lived and grew up outside of Virginia, and they certainly cursed my name as they navigated the traffic and road construction to make it to the venue. However, each and every person had their questions of “why in the world would he make us drive all this way?” answered soon as they passed the gates and entered the realm of Lightwood.
    Cliff was an exceptional host! The entire process from initial inquiries, picking our date, welcoming us to Lightwood, and helping before, during, and after the ceremony and reception, Cliff exceeded our already high expectations. The house was tidy and welcoming upon our arrival and the grounds were well cared for. There is a large green next to the house which is a great spot for setting up a large tent for your guests. The trails through the wood is enchanting with exciting landmarks such as the fairy tree. In short, the entire Lightwood experience was outstanding. Cliff was kind enough to lend his musical talents to our ceremony, and played guitar for us. His son Thomas was extremely helpful as well throughout the day of our wedding with various needs. The time we spent there was so refreshing and we felt like we entered a special world where everything else disappeared.
    We highly recommend staying at Lightwood House, and I even asked Cliff they day of our wedding if we could book the house for our anniversary right then. I made sure to tell all of our guests that Lightwood is for more than just weddings and events, and that it makes a perfect vacation rental everyone needs to experience. Without a doubt we will be returning to Lightwood House multiple times in the future, and we cannot wait for the moment we turn down the scenic drive and see the beautiful house once more.
