Waterford Foundation is a historic wedding venue located in Waterford, Virginia. At this charming venue, you and your guests will be able to step back in time and embrace a town filled with a rich history. Back in 1733, Amos Janney founded this town.

***Best kept wedding secret in the greater DC area! (roomy recent classic design venue addition to the old school; unbelievable value & beauty) Take a drive out to the historic village of Waterford. On your way you'll pass rolling green hills & streams. Upon arrival you'll be enamored by the town's legacy & commitment to preservation. Only 10 minutes from Leesburg for hotels, restaurants, shopping for guests or easily accessed from DC/airport. The rental can include a historic church for the ceremony & "old school" auditorium or individual rental & meadow. Don't underestimate the description "old school auditorium". MUST see. Windows on 3 sides of the building, tall ceilings, great lighting, stage, AV, terrace with benches, modern caterer kitchen, plenty of restrooms AND access to historic village, church. Claressa read our minds when we discussed the necessary pandemic rules while not overly restricting us nor adding to the regulations. Contract was simple, clear & reasonable as was the price. Communication was excellent. Note: this is not a hotel, so you may have additional considerations to plan for however Claressa was super helpful in working with us for deliveries, decorating & requests. If you want a "destination" feel with historical story book aspects but a facility up to the task of a modern catered wedding, this is it. Note: the church though plain & very old, was picturesque, well suited for our flower baskets/arch & acoustics great for the piano/organ. The simplicity of the building helped maintain the meaning & spiritual aspect of the ceremony. THANK YOU Waterford Foundation & to the townspeople for the use of your facilities helping us make this a memorable Wedding. We look forward to further visits to do your walking tour & festivals.Sent on 12/20/2020
