Rockwood Manor was the PERFECT venue for our wedding. We chose the three-day resort package, which meant we had access to the manor as well as all the lodging areas throughout the weekend. My entire family was able to sleep in the hotel-style cottages, and guests who didn't want to drive home after the wedding crashed in the cabins on Saturday night. We also were able to use the manor house for the rehearsal dinner on Friday, as well as a Sunday breakfast for those who stayed on-site. For all the was included, the pricing for this facility was very reasonable!
Our ceremony was outdoors on the terrace, and the wooded backdrop was gorgeous. We took advantage of the fine fall weather and did cocktail hour outside as well. We served dinner downstairs in Brooke Hall and the Great Falls rooms, which accommodated our 135 guests just fine. After-dinner dancing and cake happened in the Rapidian Room and adjacent upstairs rooms. The different areas of the house worked really well for all our wedding activities. And later in the evening, we lit a fire in the campfire ring, which everyone loved!
Leading up to the wedding, I always had an easy time getting staff on the phone (usually Marsha and Rob) to answer any questions and coordinate any details, and the staff on-site on the weekend of the wedding were great (Donelle and Tina). I really appreciated the fact that they were there to help when we needed it, but I never felt like they were breathing down our necks. For us, seriously, this was the PERFECT venue!
I have worked at all 3 of these venues, and I feel they offer a lot to couples looking for a unique place for their wedding. Rockwood is a large venue that offers complete climate controlled comfort for your ceremony and reception, if desired. Woodlawn is a wonderful property with sprawling lawns perfect for a gorgeous white tent. And The Lodge is a rustic venue with gorgeous views for an outdoor ceremony. All three include some sort of tables and chairs, which can save you a little bit of money on rentals too!
