    Amazing and Beautiful Wedding

    My daughter's wedding was 11/13/2021 and as many of our guests described "was a fairytale". The venue is breathtaking, Richard and Erin were amazing and made the wedding beautiful and flawless. Richard's personality is infectious and he really truly cares. Erin took all of our ideas and made them more beautiful than I could have imagined. It was a day none of us will ever forget. We only toured one venue and Rock Hill Plantation House won us over immediately. So grateful to everyone for the most beautiful, fun, and memorable wedding ever. My daughter and new son-n-law said they could not have been happier.

    Wouldn't change a thing

    Our wedding was on 7/11/2020 at Rock Hill Plantation House. The grounds were absolutely wonderful. Our guests did nothing but sing its praises for days later. Richard's personality is contagious, and his recommended wedding planner Erin was right on time. We toured two wedding venues, and Rock Hill was no doubt the best. We highly recommend it for your next special event.

    Amazing venue, impeccable staff

    We cannot say enough wonderful things about Richard and Rockhill Plantation! Planning, communication, flexibility, and finally, the beauty of the venue were impeccable. We booked this venue before anyone even knew what COVID was and the original date was supposed to be July 2020. Richard was so wonderful in helping us navigate what was going on with state requirements and ultimately having to reschedule for July 2021, despite what I am sure was an uncertain time for him and his business. He really did put our needs and comfort first- meeting with us and determining the safest way forward. When we finally got to July 2021and the big day it went flawlessly. Our event coordinator, Erin, who worked with Rockhill Planation was exceptional and Richard who DJ’d the event was amazing. Both of them felt like family and integrated themselves flawlessly into the day. They seemed to be aware of what we needed before it even occurred to us. In fact, many months later, I am still hearing from family and friends about Richard’s clear expertise in keeping the party going and making sure there were no lulls in the receptions flow. Erin, for her part, anticipated every possible contingency. You almost always hear about some sort of mishaps or “that one relative” at weddings- we had none of that because Richard and Erin were on top of it.
    Richard and Erin worked amazing with all of our vendors, from catering, to the florist, the officiant, and limo and shuttle drivers- Richard and Erin made sure that any issues were dealt with behind the scenes and had no impact on the festivities. (On that note, I will say I strongly recommend that anyone using this venue consider booking a shuttle service to take guests to and from the venue, as it is located on a country road- just to save yourself the worry of people not having to drive.)
    Lastly, the venue itself was beautiful, we scheduled the wedding for 6pm on July 10th 2021, so we were worried about heat and/or rain. Thankfully, the day was beautiful but in addition, the venue has many flowering trees that made the views beautiful (and cut down on our florist bill for those who are budget minded). Richard allowed us to bring a few outdoor games (cornhole) and we had ice tea and water stations in a couple places, so the grounds really felt like a comfortable, family gathering. We had close to 100 people in total and at first were a little concerned about space in the reception hall. However, that turned out to be a needless worry. There was plenty of space for dancing, dining and conversation. The patio in the back was the perfect hang out place for drinking and catching up- you could see all the dancing and activity but the music on the patio wasn’t so overpowering you couldn’t talk. The large lawn area was perfect for the younger guests to run around and play games.
    In short, I am so thankful we found Rockhill Plantation for our daughter’s wedding. We couldn’t have asked for better people to work or a place to make wonderful memories.

I have had the privilege to play at Rock Hill Plantation House several times over the years. The grounds and buildings are absolutely breathtaking and impeccably kept. I can't think of a more beautiful and serene setting for a wedding! Rev Will and Jo Anne are amazing at what they do—they carefully manage every detail to make sure a wedding runs smoothly and in a timely manner. However, not only are they excellent at their jobs, but they are some of the kindest people I've ever meet. They greatly value their relationships not only with their clients but also with their vendors. It has been my joy and privilege to be on their preferred vendor list over the past few years. I give my highest recommendation to their services!

Rock Hill is a nestled in the countryside of Stafford, Viriginia. Out on the grounds, there is a Gazebo designed for ceremonies with electrical provisions for your musicians. This is unusual for many outdoor ceremony locations. The Carriage House is lovely for receptions, with French doors that open on to a covered Veranda-a great back up plan in case the weather does not cooperate! A very unique venue you must see.
