We loved this venue!
We are so happy we went with Whitehouse Caterers at Overhills Mansion for our wedding. We visited a dozen other venues in the DMV and decided on Overhills pretty much immediately after leaving the venue. We wanted a venue we knew would be nice for an indoor wedding because we were getting married in January, but their outdoor space is also beautiful for an outdoor ceremony. We are happy we chose this place because it is a beautiful Mansion, the Whitehouse Caterers employees were excellent, we still hear about how good the food was from our guests, it’s convenient to BWI for our out-of-towners, and the price was reasonable for everything the venue provided.
When you book WHC you get a wedding planner, day of coordinator, bartenders, staff, linens, and additional perks such as separate getting ready spaces for the bride and the groom. Jessica was our wedding planner and made the entire process as easy as it could be for us. We met with her to plan our wedding day several months out and again about a week before the wedding to make sure all the fine details are ironed out. Rosie was our day-of-coordinator and she was wonderful! She made sure our ceremony went smoothly and made sure we were taken care of the entire night.
Make sure to go to the tasting event hungry! The selection is so large that we ‘tasted’ enough food to eat about three full meals. All of the food was good, but the pumpkin seed encrusted trout, grilled cheese & tomato soup “shooter” and cannolis were our (and our guests) favorites.
WHC supplies their own bartenders and partners with The Wine Bin as their liquor providers. We loved they do this because you only pay for what your guests drink at liquor store prices. It saved us about $2k on alcohol compared to venues that offer flat fees per guest and we got to choose whichever brands we wanted including some fun local beers.
Overall, White House Caterers at Overhills Mansion did a fantastic job hosting our wedding and we would recommend them to anyone getting married in this area. Their employees are wonderful and the food is excellent. The price was reasonable for everything Overhills provides, as other venues we looked at were around 30% more for a similar package.Sent on 03/25/2020

This venue was more than we could have ever hoped for. From the staff, the decor and the amazing food, it exceeded our expectations. The venue is so beautiful on its own, that you barely need further decoration. Can’t wait to see our pictures!Sent on 01/02/2020

Beautiful Venue with Amazing People
Whitehouse Caterers at Overhills Mansion was the best caterer and venue we could have hoped for. This was only the second place we visited as an option, and we knew from our first visit that this is where we wanted to get married! Our first visit was with Terri who provided us with a full tour of the facility and a cost estimate for what we had in mind for our day. Most of my communication thereafter was with Lynda, who I cannot say enough good things about. She answered every email in a timely manner, met with us at least 3 times (probably more) to go over logistics or any concern I had, and I was lucky enough to have her there the day of our wedding as well. We had a very specific vision, as our wedding was Alice in Wonderland themed, and they were not only accommodating with our vision, but also went above and beyond to make everything perfect for us. We had our ceremony and reception there with a brunch buffet for dinner, and all of our guests raved about the service and the food. We also had a short rehearsal there the week of the wedding where we met our day-of coordinator, Rosie, who was an amazing help the day of, especially with our ceremony. We provided directions for the staff set up all of our centerpieces, aisle markers, and all of our decor for us, which was a HUGE help. The waitstaff and bartenders even seemed like they were having a good time with our guests!
Some things to keep in mind:
PLEASE NOTE that these are not complaints, simply things to consider when choosing this venue.
1. We got married mid afternoon on a Sunday because we wanted to be the only wedding that day. If you get married on a Saturday, there will likely be another wedding either before or after you.
2. You are able to drop off your decorations a few days before your event, but you will need to have help with getting all of your decorations out on the day of. You are not able to pick anything up the next day.
3. While we had a rehearsal, it was on the Thursday before our Sunday wedding, we were not able to have this scheduled until one month before the wedding, which I'll admit was a little stressful, but honestly, it’s completely understandable. It is unrealistic to expect a venue to hold the space open for you on a Saturday for a $50 rehearsal fee when they should be booking another wedding or event that day.
Overall, Overhills and Whitehouse Caterers was the absolute best venue we could have hoped for. I cannot recommend them enough, especially Lynda and Rosie!

Overhills Mansion's reply:Megan, we had so much fun helping you make your Alice in Wonderland vision come to life!
Whitehouse Caterers at Overhills Mansion is a great wedding venue I can easily recommend to my couples. They are easy to work with and attentive to details. As a local florist, I look forward to working with more couples at Overhills!
This venue is a hidden gem! It is full of classic beauty and the staff is so friendly and accommodating! We had one of our best vendor meals at this venue. The staff brought us our food to a private table outside and it was DELICIOUS. We hope to shoot many more weddings here in the future! <3
Whitehouse Caterers at Overhills Mansion is one of our favorite vendors. Their staff is always super organized and we always appreciate their courtesy and kindness!
