Best Wedding Venue Ever!

My cousin got married here years ago and we had so much fun we decided to come back and have our wedding here too! The owners are very kind and hospitable and the property is just beautiful! Great place for a scenic ceremony and a fun barn to have your reception in afterwards. Highly recommend!

The Best Backdrop for Our Memories

From the moment we pulled up to Murray Hill and saw the stunning view of the Potomac we knew this is where we wanted to have our wedding. The view overlooking the river was perfect and there were SO many different ways to think about orienting our wedding arch for various views. During the wedding it was so nice to look over the river, feel the breeze and just soak in the majesty of their property.

The Rust's graciously open their home for weddings so I was able to get ready in their front room, take a moment to get pictures on the grounds, and also relax for a moment before heading out for the party. It is stunning, welcoming and comfortable. Peggy always made me feel at home and was so gracious. One of the best things about this venue is that if you book for the weekend you have time the day before and after to set up and tear down which was a lifesaver. Many venues that we visited had weddings back to back for several days straight and had strict load in and load out policies. I really appreciate having the time to add some last minute touches for the wedding and also having the time to make sure we left the space better than we found it. I really recommend this venue.

Dream wedding venue

Murray Hill was an absolute dream venue for my 10/24/2020 wedding. Getting married in a pandemic is definitely a challenge, but John & Peggy made sure our day was perfect, safe, and unforgettable. Peggy was incredibly accommodating with planning ahead of time, especially with all the changes we needed to make to keep everyone safe. The venue itself is gorgeous and makes for the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos. The views from the Potomac Overlook are unmatched! We had the most amazing time and people could not stop commenting on the beauty of the venue. I would not hesitate to recommend them to any couple trying to have their perfect wedding day!
