We held our wedding ceremony and reception at Murray Hill and it was just amazing! Peggy and her husband were very accommodating and wonderful to work with. The venue is just breathtaking and all the guests were in awe of how gorgeous everything turned out. We even got to see a bald eagle flying around just before the ceremony. The views are spectacular. Highly recommend!Sent on 09/11/2015

I had my wedding at Murray Hill on June 6. Every single aspect of Murray Hill was amazing.Sent on 06/24/2015
Start with an unbelievably beautiful location with multiple areas to hold parts of the event. Want to exchange your vows on a cliff overlooking the Potomac River? No problem! Cocktails in the garden or by the pool? Why not? Dinner and dancing under twinkly lights in a beautifully restored barn. Go for it!
Then add in how flexible and accommodating the owners, Peggy and John Rust, are. Although Murray Hill is their private home, we were able to come to Murray Hill countless times in the year leading up to the wedding. The Rusts also let you bring supplies/decorations and set up days before the wedding and break down the

We feel so incredibly lucky to have found Murray Hill. The property is gorgeous and it is a home, not a wedding mill. Peggy and John were very helpful --- they allowed us to show up (to their home) repeatedly leading up to the wedding and start decorating days before the wedding. They even helped us find a last-minute vendor. The day-of, their property was immaculate for our guests. Peggy even carried my train as I left the house to walk down the aisle. I can't imagine a better venue.Sent on 04/30/2015
