Beautiful nature for fall wedding
We had a wonderful experience hosting our fall 2018 wedding at Rockwood Manor. We did a wedding weekend retreat which worked out perfectly especially for our out of town family members. The space was absolutely beautiful and we got fantastic photos within the nature setting, the guests loved the gazebo as well. With the large building and many rooms and spacious grounds, there was something for everyone- kids could run around, people could dance, sit, talk, whatever they wanted to do. We felt the price was a bargain for all that was included. It is more work to "DIY" but it saved a lot of money and was more personalized. We were lucky to have family and friends pitch in, decorating and carrying things etc., but if that is not an option we'd recommend paying extra for the caterer to do the extra logistical tasks. The Rockwood staff was incredible- flexible, available, and able to offer expert advice and recommendations. We are so grateful to them for their hard work and all their support leading up to the event which was a dream realized. We highly recommend Rockwood!

We absolutely LOVE Rockwood Manor and the staff that work there. We used Rockwood Manor for a wedding weekend retreat on July 23, 2016. Gina and Will were especially helpful and accommodating before and during our wedding weekend. They met with us several times for walk throughs with different vendors, or just for us to see the space and talk about the best layout. We loved that our families and friends were able to be together all weekend. On Friday, we had a pizza truck (Pizza Brama - amazing!) come and feed 80 guests for our rehearsal dinner. We got sides from the Market at River Falls which is an amazing little gourmet grocery store nearby. During the day on Saturday, our family and friends went for a hike while the bridal party got make up and hair done in the bridal suite. After our wedding, we continued to hang out down by the cabins. On Sunday morning we had a small brunch for guests that stayed overnight. Logistically, Rockwood Manor allows you to DIY as much as you want. They have tables and chairs but you have to rent everything else - caterer, linens, glassware, ect. This is a little more work but gives you the opportunity to "shop around" and potentially save some money. We bought all our own alcohol, kegerator (for beer), linens, string lights and a selfie station. The dance floor is a little bit separate from the rest of the upstairs which is the perfect set up for a no judgement dance floor (aka amazing party)!! Our DJ brought dance floor lights that amplified the energy on the dance floor even more. Our wedding was so much fun thanks to Rockwood manor!!!!

We had a Spring wedding at Rockwood, and in addition to the natural beauty, its convenient location to Potomac Village, the several National Parks and hiking trails, and the various spaces one can use (indoors and out), plus the absolutely flexible and caring staff (they want to do whatever so that the client is happy), it is a wonderful place so that your guests can stay there and therefore have more time to spend with family and friends. Lovely manor plus gazebo or back patio for a classy ceremony , and campfire and bunkhouses for a camp feeling. It can be whatever you want it to be! It was a destination wedding near home and because we rented it for the entire weekend and provided meals, guests were able to attend a wedding much more inexpensively than usual.
