Best wedding ever!!!
My husband and I had a terrible experience with another resort when searching for a venue, and the Salamander team reached out the next day (totally by chance)— thank goodness they did! Our initial meeting with Christina was great. She didn’t “sell” us on anything. She made suggestions and worked to help us choose the best option for our wants and needs. Our tasting was amazing. The final venue walk through, with our day of coordinator from Etc. Coordinators was the same weekend as my birthday and they even had a card signed by the whole team with a gift and a champagne toast! Linda, with the group room reservation team, was super helpful in adding rooms to the block and making sure everyone was able to check in with ease. The entire team answered quickly, was completely solution oriented when anything came up (which was rare because everything was so easily laid out). Every one of my guests said it was phenomenal and they couldn’t believe they got to celebrate with us at the Salamander. My dad even said it was the best wedding he’s ever been to- and my husband and I agree(not bias or anything ;) ). The best part about the entire event (rehearsal, wedding, and post day brunch) was the ease of it all. It’s not free, however you get what you pay for and it was 100% worth every penny. If you are questioning anything at all, just meet with them once and you’ll be just as happy as we were. A phenomenal place to say I Do and return for anniversaries as well!Sent on 05/29/2019

From the very beginning Christina Gibson was off the charts wonderful. She helped in getting the dream wedding we and our families imagined (and more!). We arrived to the venue walk through and it was freeeeezing outside. Christina helped paint a picture of the entire event so we really felt comfortable reserving the venue for our date the following summer. Every step after that was just as simple. She was able to answer questions and concerns as they arose- extremely timely as well. She recommended our day of coordinator— etc. coordinators (Sarah Obenour) and that was a terrific decision to hire them. The entire catering staff was warm and professional. There was not a single issue the entire process and our guests are still raving about it!Sent on 07/07/2019

My Guests Are Still Talking About My Wedding...
My now husband and I had visited Salamander on a whim a few years ago to take our dog on a walk around the beautiful property. After having done so, we sat in some Adirondack chairs by the fire pit and took in the peacefulness of the country. We looked at each other and agreed that one day, this would be our wedding venue... we weren't even engaged yet.Sent on 04/09/2019
Fast forward a year-and-a-half later, and we're still all smiles from the most incredible evening of our lives. From the very beginning of the planning, to checking out of the bridal suite the day after our wedding, we were treated to a five-star experience at Salamander Resort, with now a lifetime full of memories to look back on.
I could write volumes of how incredible Christina Gibson is, alone, who was my guide throughout the planning process. I could also write volumes on Jason Reaves and him taking our cake vision and turning it into a reality (no one ever goes for a second piece of cake at a wedding and ours was completely gone). Finally, I could also go on and on about the bell staff, the catering staff, the banquet staff, and everyone else that helped to make our night more perfect than we had expected.
From the venue itself, to the INCREDIBLE food, to the flexibility in layout, to options for our different events, to the bridal suite, and so much more... I highly recommend choosing Salamander for your wedding. I promise you, it will leave you with the same feeling it left us with - a state of total over-the-moon happiness!
Salamander Resort & Spa is a premier location in the Virginia Hunt Country. In the beautiful and historic town of Middleburg, it oozes charm, sophistication, perfection! The facility is designed to the ultimate degree, but is not ostentatious. The staff provide a degree of support and accommodation that is unmatched in the Washington region. From the views, to the locations for ceremonies, cocktail hours, and receptions, the ultimate quiet beauty of Salamander is evident immediately, but never overdone. I love coming to this wonderful location to officiate weddings, and I am absolutely certain that you will find complete satisfaction and a pride in selecting Salamander!
