    Wonderful wedding experience and setting

    We had a wonderful stress-free planning experience with Rock Creek Mansion and Julie Carter. Lots of room for dancing, buffet, great bar area and grounds. Reasonable pricing for a lovely place.

    7.21.2018 wedding

    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.

    This is a great place for an event. My daughter's wedding reception was held here and it was a wonderful experience. Rock Creek Mansion's event coordinator, Julie Buckingham Carter, was very helpful and flexible to meet our needs. They do one event per day so you don't have to worry about having other events crowding you out (we were able to do our set up at a time which was easiest for us -- which you may not get at another site). We used both indoor and outdoor space for one extremely reasonable price. This site is in Bethesda, Maryland which is a very expensive area, but this beautiful place is very reasonable priced (we paid $3890 for 5 hours plus 2 hour setup). I would highly recommend having an event here and would definitely use it again. Very nice place and very nice people working there.

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.
