Perfect Venue for Our Wedding Reception

Rock Creek Mansion was the perfect venue for our wedding reception! We had a wonderful experience working with Julie, who was always very responsive, helpful, friendly and accommodating. We had a walk-through with Julie and a couple other vendors a month before the event, which was super helpful. We were able to reserve extra time for building access so I could get ready with my bridesmaids in the bridal suite upstairs. The beverage agreement options were very reasonable, the service was great, and we were even able to have an after party in the Knights of Columbus bar downstairs. We鈥檙e really glad we went with Rock Creek Mansion for our reception venue and we definitely recommend them!

Our wedding was amazing! Rock creek Mansion is such a nice place. It has a good space that is not divided and it makes everyone part of the celebration. Miss Julie is very responsive, such a nice person and gives you ideas/options when you are running out of it. She was very helpful.

Rock Creek Mansion is one of my favorite venues to work at. As a wedding photographer, I am always somewhat limited by the space I am working in, and RCM is gorgeous. Their staff is also friendly and great to work with. I have shot there three times in the last couple of years, and look forward to returning more in the future.
