    A Country Wedding

    My husband and I were delighted to work with Shirley and Waldo. Their beautiful farm and B&B were the perfect location for our country wedding. The service was great and our wedding went off without a hitch. I highly recommend them.

    Awesome location for meetings too!

    Absolutely perfect experience at Blue Hill Farms this week. Shirley prepared an amazing breakfast and the location was perfect for our group. Plenty of room to spread out - perfect spots to gather and brainstorm! My favorite? Outdoor meeting on the porch chairs and rockers!
    Highly recommend for business or pleasure!

    Blue Hill Farm is an absolutely wonderful venue for a wedding. My fiance and I were blown away from the moment we stepped on the property. The property is extensive and very very well maintained. The views are absolutely gorgeous!! Shirley and Waldo are the owners, and they couldn’t have been kinder and more excited for our special day. Their home is gorgeous, with ample space for bridal parties to get ready. They’ve got three of the sweetest and most well-behaved dogs I’ve ever met, I’d happily have them in attendance at the wedding :).

    The thing that makes Blue Hill Farm really stand out though is their level of service and commitment. Shirley and Waldo made us feel at home immediately, you can tell from a first impression that they really love what they do and are always eager to learn and do more to make your special day even better. Throughout our selection process, they communicated quickly and openly with us on any questions that we had. They’re committed to making their venue the best it can be for your wedding.

    While we were unable to select Blue Hill Farm as our wedding venue, if you’re looking for a venue with rustic appeal, but not far from the hustle and bustle of NoVA, then you should definitely check them out. Their service is unmatched, their venue is beautiful, and their prices are very reasonable.

    My fiancé and I were looking into wedding venues and Blue Hill Farms is the place for us. Shirley and Waldo are very accommodating, warm and inviting. That's the feeling we got from them from the moment we met them and saw their farm. Although we have not had our wedding yet, we look forward to having it here one day. The farm house is spacious and beautifully decorated. The farm and reception area are gorgeous! Shirley and Waldo have created something very special here, you will not be disappointed.

    Beautiful venue, freedom to personalize wedding, amazing hands-on owners

    We knew that Blue Hill was where we’d like to hold our wedding after our first visit. The owners, Shirley and Waldo were kind, friendly, and accommodating to many of our requests. We were able to really personalize our wedding to reflect our personalities. This personalization is probably hard to do at other venues we visited that are incredibly strict with their regulations. The amount of land available to use is amazing and we even stayed on site Saturday night since the venue also serves as a BNB. Throughout the wedding planning process, Shirley and Waldo were very responsive and gave very helpful vendor suggestions that are reasonably priced. The venue provides a wide amount of decoration and furniture to use (some which are free and some that are not). We also had a DOC (Shirley and Waldo’s daughter) help us with the planning during the month leading up to our wedding. On the day of, Shirley and Waldo were busy helping us set up the carriage house, taking care of the property, and making sure our vision becomes reality. We got very lucky that there was no rain so we got to enjoy our wedding mostly outdoors. Since Blue Hill only holds one wedding per weekend, we really got to enjoy the space and not rush to set things up and break things down, as opposed to many other venues around the area where clean up needs to happen by midnight of your wedding and strict time limit. We are incredibly happy with our decision and had the most wonderful wedding and experience at Blue Hill!

    Thank you Hui Hui!! We so appreciate your kind words. Yours was definitely a wedding to remember. It was truly unique and really beautiful as well. We'll also always remember it was the first (and most likely the only) time we ever had Guinea Pig ring bearers! We loved hosting you guys and appreciate your trust in Drew to be your coordinator.

    September Wedding Review

    We got married at Blue Hill Farm in late September 2018 and our friends and family are still raving about how beautiful this venue is! Shirley and Waldo made us feel right at home and it made such a difference to be able to stay in their home for the entire weekend. The girls all got ready upstairs in the two bedrooms connected by a large bathroom with natural sunlight. We had our ceremony in the front yard overlooking the fall scenery and used the carriage house for our reception which fit 90 people comfortably for dinner and the lights around the yard and pool were perfect. Waldo even made a fire for the guests to enjoy! The bridal party absolutely loved the two pups and they were a part of some of our group shots :) Everything was absolutely beautiful and I can't thank Shirley and Waldo enough for helping us put together our dream day!

    Blue Hill Farm B&B's reply:

    Thank you Julia, we loved what you and Ricky pulled together. So many tasteful touches in setting up the ceremony area and the carriage house. It was small and intimate and being able to dance under the stars especially given the weather we had this year was so special. We loved all your pictures and especially those where Yogi & Emmett snuck in to do a little cameo. Keep in touch and enjoy your first married Christmas and New Years!

    Amazing Venue!

    I knew we would love Blue Hill just from looking at their photos online - it was exactly the kind of venue we were looking for and the views from the property are absolutely breathtaking. Shirley and Waldo were really the icing on the cake, though. They were so helpful from the first day I emailed them, easy to chat with, and genuinely wonderful people. They want to help their couples pull off their wedding dreams in any way that they can. They were always quick to respond with answers to our questions, flexible on woking with our various vendors, and accommodating with allowing us to come view and tour the property multiple times. We could not have had a better day, and Shirley and Waldo are a huge credit to that! Thank you both for all your help!

    Perfect Wedding Venue

    After touring a couple of other wedding venues, we toured Blue Hill Farm and immediately knew it was the best selection for us. We fell in love with the view on the front hill and the ample space in the backyard for a tent. The venue (aside from its overall beautiful aesthetic) also checked a lot of boxes for us: no mandatory vendors, 15 minutes away from a major airport, and lots of hotel options.

    We could not be more pleased with our decision. The entire process from the time we booked in December until September was great. We lived local to the area and I was impressed with how available Waldo and Shirley made themselves. We visited the venue several times prior to the wedding to show our parents, figure out logistics, and meet with our day of coordinator. Waldo and Shirley were always flexible and answered our many questions.

    Our wedding ended up falling during the week of Hurricane Florence. When the track had the hurricane coming up the Chesapeake, I was on daily calls with Waldo and he was helping us troubleshoot solutions. Waldo even called our rental company to make sure they would still support us even if the weather was subpar. The actual day ended up being hurricane-free but we are so thankful for the support we had from BHF prior.

    Everything on our day worked out perfectly. Waldo and Shirley made themselves available and helped make sure everything was ready to go. Our guests had no issues getting to the venue and loved the setting. We are so happy with how everything turned out – Thank you Blue Hill Farm!

    Thank you for your kind and thoughtful words. It was our pleasure to host your wedding and we were so honored that you decided to have it here because we knew you'd looked at other good venues. We were looking forward to it because we knew you'd all put in so much time and effort in sweating all the little details. Having a category 4 hurricane potentially headed here was a little bit unnerving to say the least but you both had faith, we had backup plans and you were just great to work with in the face of some major possible last minute changes on such an important day. I think we all were saying prayers and in the end, everything came together beautifully. In retrospect it made your weekend all the more special when you could breathe that extra sigh of relief! You're family members now, please stay in touch!

    The perfect venue - Blue Hill Farm

    Blue Hill Farm did not disappoint. My husband and I live in Dallas TX and during the planning process we were unable to visit the venue. My mother face-timed me walking through and I knew right away that this is where I needed to have our wedding. Shirley and Waldo were the absolute best hosts and the biggest help throughout the entire process. When I finally was able to visit the venue (4 days before the wedding day) my breath was taken away once again and I knew I made the right choice.
    I knew I had to have my wedding back home in VA where you have the mountains and natural background available. Blue Hill Farm gives you the stunning 360 view a fun and easy flowing wedding. The inside of the house where we all got ready is just perfect. The boys have their area downstairs which is ultimately where the boys watched our Alma Mater’s Foot-ball game before the big day. The girls have a stunning bathroom to get ready in along with elegant bedrooms which were stunning for photos and more than enough room to get ready in. For the bride its perfect, you are able to see what all is going on. I did not have a wedding planner so seeing my family and friends help set things up throughout the day was very helpful. The flow of the wedding is so easy with the way their land is set up. People don’t have to walk far or back and forth with whatever way you decide to have your special day set up.
    I cannot say enough good things about Blue Hill Farm, The hosts, the view and the atmosphere cannot be matched. I would not change anything about the venue and the help that you get with Shirley and Waldo is unmatch-able.

    HUGE THANK YOU!!

    Our Dream Wedding!

    Being a military couple we were nervous about shopping for weddings from a distance. However, our minds were made up after talking to Waldo and Shirley! They were incredibly accommodating every single step of the way, and the entire planning process was a breeze. They were incredibly responsive, always replying within 24 hours or picking up any call. The wedding couldn’t have gone better - it was so convenient to have our day of coordinator and photographers stay on the venue, and Waldo and Shirley responded to every change with grace - even the massive thunderstorm that rolled through during the cocktail hour, and unexpected electricity outages in our reception tent! It was a perfect day, made even better by their kindness and attention to detail. It was great to save some money through their efforts - Waldo’s handmade dance floor, parking on site... and so much else. We can’t wait to go back for an anniversary visit! All of guests loved feeling so outdoors and the pictures and so beautiful. Plenty of space for kids to run around yet elegant and classy. I can’t recommend Blue Hill enough for your wedding venue - with the added bonus of how awesome Waldo and Shirley are to work with and get to know!

    Amanda & Kyle, Thank you so much for your vote of confidence! It's hard to add words on top of what was an incredible weekend filled with love, beauty and drama from that "little" lightning storm. We will certainly remember that and your pictures captured it perfectly. Everything worked beautifully and you were both a real pleasure to work with. We loved meeting your folks and friends, it was clear you had assembled quite the team around you and we were impressed and inspired with how you made the most out of the weekend with your creative touches all around the venue. Please stay in touch and best wishes to all of you.

    Wedding Venue of Our Dreams

    Blue Hill Farm is a beautiful bed and breakfast plus wedding venue located in the quiet Leesburg, VA area. From start to finish, our whole planning process was as easy as possible. The owners Waldo & Shirley were consistently kind and helpful in realizing our vision for our September 1st wedding. They both were extremely responsive with advice and input throughout the year leading up to our wedding, responding quickly and always up for a phone call. We appreciated their candid thoughts about what worked best in the past, and could make any modification to suit our needs. Come the weekend of our wedding, Waldo and Shirley worked tirelessly to make sure our wedding was a stress-free and enjoyable event for the two of us and our 200+ guests. Waldo went above and beyond creating a custom cross for our ceremony and they have a wide variety of props to use throughout our evening. One of our biggest worries before our event was potential rain, and even though we had a storm during our reception, Waldo ensured that it did not affect our ceremony or everyone’s of the evening. We are so thankful for the opportunity to have held our special day at Blue Hill Farm and would not hesitate recommending the venue to others! We can’t wait to return for an anniversary weekend!

    Kyle,

    Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful words. You and Amanda were a true pleasure to work with! I knew from our first contact and email that even though you'd never laid eyes on Blue Hill Farm in person, that this was going to be a great connection and a fun wedding. We were excited to see what you all were planning to pull off and you didn't disappoint, bringing your A game for big picture, small details and organization as well as an A+ team of family and friends backing you. There were lots of memorable moments that weekend but the fact that neither of you seemed to sweat but have even more fun even with a spectacular lightning show flashing around us during your reception was special. You know the saying that rain on your wedding day is a good omen... the fact that you had a such a visual and audible spectacle is a harbinger of great things for you and Amanda!

    The Perfect Outdoor Venue

    Blue Hill Farm was the perfect venue for our outdoor August wedding. We were able to stay at the farm and used the carriage house for our rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding. The property and views are absolutely stunning and it was only an hour away from our home in DC and just twenty minutes from the airport for all of our out of town guests. Shirley and Waldo were incredibly helpful and responsive in the months leading up to the wedding, offering up recommendations for vendors (we found our photographer, hair and makeup, hotel block, and caterer through them!) and ideas and suggestions when were weren't sure how we wanted things to look or how to set things up. They also provided so much hands on support on the day of the wedding, helping our parents decorate the wedding arch, coordinating with the other vendors, and even running to the store when we realized that that we didn't have mixers for the mixed drinks. The price was amazing considering it was for the full weekend, including room and breakfast for us and a few members of our wedding party who stayed over at the house Friday and Saturday nights. However, our one complaint is that there were a few hidden fees - little things that we were not told would cost anything and only found out about on our final invoice the day after the wedding. Overall, it was a perfect wedding and our guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful the venue was!

    Easily the most magical day of our lives!

    Oh wow, what can we say about our most magical, wondrous wedding day on June 9, 2018?! The Blue Hill Farm came highly recommended to us by a mutual friend who attended a wedding the year before. Upon arriving the location, we immediately loved the expansive green pasture, perfectly painted white fence, and gorgeous structures on the property. We also loved the idea of renting the property for the entire weekend so that we could have an ease of mind in preparing for our wedding (which included a lot of DIY projects from my family!!) with 100 guests. Our style was very hands-on and close-knit with a lot of involvement from our families and friends. We had our casual 30 people dinner rehearsal (the original catering backed out, and Shirley helped with a last minute phone call to a local pizzeria!!) at the old barn the evening before the wedding day, then the bridesmaids slept at the main house with the bride. The bridal party (5 of us) woke up to a home cooked breakfast, and the hair/make up team arrived to do their magic on us. The groomsmen set up the reception area on the morning of the wedding day. The bridesmaids got ready comfortably in their ensuite master bathroom while the groomsmen got ready on the first floor. Everyone (florist, DJ, wedding day coordinator, caterer, photographer, photo booth specialist, videographers) arrived at the venue throughout the day and the owners (Shirley and Waldo) offered support, made recommendations and did a last minute run to the food store for ice! We did not feel pressurized to abide by their recommendations but we completely trusted their taste and the collaboration was totally effortless. Shirley and Waldo were presented with such a unique situation-- nearly everyone at the wedding was Deaf! However, communication was comfortable, with a lot of emails and handwritten notes. Shirley provided several drafts of the reception layout prior to the big day which was helpful in visualizing the space in the Carriage House. Shirley and Waldo exhibited a perfect balance of being super helpful and supportive while also staying behind the scenes. Ask for their ala carte list of items for rental and service fees because they are expansive and gorgeous. Our wedding day had a forecast of a possible thunderstorm in the middle of our reception and the venue was accommodating with several backup plans-- then it rained for only 15 minutes during the toast. The wedding celebration closed out with a fun bonfire completed with smores, and a line up of sparklers with raucous guests then Waldo assisted with the shuttle bus herding the guests and we, as happy newlyweds, just walked up to the main house. We enjoyed a bottle of wine and a couple of cigars on their porch overlooking the site of our ceremony. Looking back, it was such a whirlwind, yet superbly perfect day. Nearly six months later, we are still thankful for such a wonderful experience and we still love reminiscing our special day through this amazing video (https://youtu.be/FNsd3O7nJ3w)

    Bobbie Jo & Blake!,

    Sorry for our late response, not sure how we missed this earlier. We absolutely loved your wedding! It was the 25th we have hosted here and is one that ranks as one of our most unique and memorable yet. We weren't sure how we were going to manage to pull off a wedding for such a sizable a group of Deaf people but you both were so fabulous to work with, it came off great and we give you all the credit! Your video is so loving, emotional and beautiful that it remains as a must see video for our prospective couples and there isn't a one that doesn't have a tear in their eye by the time it is done! We loved meeting your families and friends and hope you both stay in touch!

    This place was absolutely amazing for our intimate wedding! We were able to dodge the rain and have our wedding outside despite the passing storms, with the help of Shirley and Waldo! The view from the house is stunning and so many of our guests were impressed with the beauty of the property. Shirley and Waldo made everything so easy for my husband and I...they helped with details and were able to provide some onsite rentals for a small fee. We also had the venue for the weekend so there was no rush to set up/tear down like with other venues we looked at. We are so happy with the decision and would have our wedding there again in a heartbeat.

    Blue Hill Farm is the Perfect Venue for the Perfect Wedding!

    We used Blue Hill Farm for the entire weekend. We had a poolside meet and greet Friday night for family and friends who traveled in for the wedding and had a wonderful Sunday brunch in the carriage house using our same decorations for the wedding reception for anyone who wanted to come by for one last goodbye. Shirley and Waldo were awesome hosts! Weddings can be stressful but Shirley was quick to use imaginative ways to set up our flowers at the last minute and had wonderful tips for us through the entire process. She really put us at ease with her "everything is going to turn out fine" attitude....because it did! Waldo made sure the grounds and all the facilities were in perfect condition for the weekend. We mainly worked with Shirley on the details of the wedding and she was always very responsive to our emails. Her suggestions for flowers, catering, tent company were all spot on. The setting itself lends to a beautiful yet casual feel. Our guests all raved about how absolutely perfect the carriage house and the grounds were. Our ceremony was perfect on the front lawn and we all danced the night away! We had a perfect wedding at Blue Hill Farm!

    Hi Jane - Just realized I never posted an official reply here. You were so nice to write such a positive, thoughtful review! We loved hosting your special day here. We will never forget the sunflowers and the amazing support and love you two were surrounded by. I hope you and Kim will stay in touch. I have your little mug on my desk (I'm using it as a pencil/pen holder) as a constant reminder!

    Blue Hill Farm made the wedding of my dreams a reality! We had the venue from Friday afternoon to Sunday morning and they were so accommodating despite the terrible downpour! We ended up still being able to have the ceremony on the front lawn (thank goodness...because the view is beautiful and was one the main draws) and then cocktail hour was under a tent in front of the carriage house. The dinner was in the carriage house (it juuust fit 97 people but they recently bought an awning to help with the size!) and dancing was under the tent again. Waldo and Shirley were very helpful and hardworking throughout the entire process. We rented some of the furniture from them (beautiful farm tables and wine barrel bars!) but also rented some through Sammy's rentals (chairs, tent, linens etc). The only issue we had was parking since their lawn was so muddy that cars wouldn't be able to drive on it but hopefully it won't rain for 7 straight days before your wedding! And they were flexible and made it work! My husband and I loved staying in their beautiful house on Friday and Saturday night. We all woke up pretty early on Saturday morning to watch the royal wedding while Waldo heated up croissants for everyone to eat for breakfast...it was really fun and a great memory right before the wedding craziness! All of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was and the pictures turned out amazing! We can't express our gratitude enough and would recommend this venue to anyone!

    Thank you Morgan! We LOVED hosting your wedding. You all did an amazing job with the Austrian theme, the music, the French horn and flowers... One for the books and one we will remember with great fondness!

    Rainy wedding on a hill

    Our wedding day was on a rainy 5th of May. The weather forecast changed daily until that day and we finally had to make a decision to execute our plan B, the rain plan. Despite the rain, everything went beautiful. Surprisingly, the rain actually stopped for the duration of the ceremony! We had multiple compliments on how beautiful the venue was also. Since the weather was unpredictable, we were unable to order almost 150 umbrellas in time, however, Waldo and Shirley kindly provided their umbrellas to guests, thankfully! Though I was very nervous about having an outdoor wedding, which was a dream of my own, Waldo and Shirley were extremely helpful throughout the entire process of planning. Blue Hill Farm is a beautiful venue with a white house sitting on green grass hill. We made a beautiful memory at the Blue Hill Farm and we are thankful to have met a great venue and the owners, Waldo & Shirley.

    Blue Hill Farm is an absolutely fabulous venue! The property speaks for itself with the gorgeous views, rolling hills & stunning architecture. As if the setting wasn't enough, the owners, Shirley & Waldo, are a pleasure to work with! They are extremely kind & professional, and truly make you feel at home. We were not able to get married here as originally planned because we had to move our wedding to Florida, but had our engagement photos taken on their property and we couldn't be more thrilled with how they turned out. We will most definitely be returning to stay at the B&B! This place is one of a kind!

    Mary Beth! Sorry I didn't reply here sooner. I'm catching up on everything now because we just had our last wedding of the season on Saturday. You were so kind to write such a nice review. We will NEVER forget you guys even though you ended up having your wedding in Florida. We loved getting to know you and Kyle. And now you're expecting a baby!! So awesome - I saw it on Facebook! Keep us posted and bring the baby out next time you visit. And have the happiest of holidays as a married couple! ; )

    My husband and I got married at Blue Hill Farm on October 28th, and we couldn't be happier with our experience with the venue! The venue owners, Shirley and Waldo, were nothing but helpful, amazing people to work with. They answered any and all questions we had for them throughout the whole process, start to finish, and were very easy to work with. They made suggestions for area layouts, vendors, and other details, which we both appreciated. The weekend of the wedding, they completely opened their home to us and our family and friends and made us all feel totally part of the Blue Hill family. I stayed at the house with my bridesmaids the night before, and both Shirley and Waldo were so accommodating and let us hang out and relax like it was our own place. The day of the wedding, they were willing to help with anything we asked and made sure that everything went smoothly from start to finish. As for the venue itself, it is absolutely beautiful! My husband and I chose the Fall for the colorful leaves, and thats exactly what we got - if you are looking for a venue that really compliments the natural beauty of Northern Virginia, look no further! Everything went according to plan, and we truly wouldn't have changed anything about our special day, especially not the venue and the relationship we built with the Tibbitts. We have already talked about planning future events at the venue, and we can't wait to see how Blue Hill Farm grows over the years!

    We got married at Blue Hill Farm in October of last year and had a wonderful experience. The owners were kind, attentive, and went above and beyond to help us create our vision on our special day (complete with a bagpiper and a fro-yo truck!). The property is gorgeous as well, and our guests marveled at the beauty and the vistas during our ceremony, as well as the photographs they saw after the fact! We cannot recommend this place or the owners enough; in the words of my 10-year-old stepdaughter, “it’s like we got married at a good friend’s house.”

    Blue Hill Farm is an amazing wedding venue with an amazing set of owners. Shirley and Waldo were so supportive and helpful from the day my now-husband and I met them for a walk-thru of the property to the morning after the wedding and beyond! From Shirley providing vendor contacts and info, ideas and pictures from other weddings held on the farm, table runners, lanterns, and other table accents, to Waldo driving our MCs into the reception on his tractor and building the perfect fire for what turned out to be a chilly night--these two really are exceptional.

    In addition to such a wonderful couple to work with (they're open to all ideas - we had a food truck for dessert!), the property itself is any bride's dream. The view from the front of the house where we did our ceremony, to the Carriage House where we had cocktail hour and after-dinner dancing, to the dinner tent in the back field--everything was beautifully manicured, decorated, and secluded. The house is not only a beautiful background addition in pictures, but was perfect for the entire wedding party to get ready for the big day!

    Our wedding was perfect (and SO MUCH FUN) and so much of it was because of Shirley, Waldo, and their gorgeous home and farm.

    I will always cherish this venue for its beauty and those who helped us during this process. Finding the perfect venue is one of the biggest check marks on a wedding check list, upon walking onto this venue it won our hearts over instantly. If you love a modern and floral theme this is the place hands down. The gorgeous backdrop of the Potomac where our ceremony took place was divine and the reception in the carriage house left people in awe! I also loved that the home is as airbnb so that guests could stay at the venue if need be. They have a lot of options at the venue for decorating, lights, bar set up, everything you could possibly need. We only needed to get a dance floor and chairs! How amazing is that? Also, Shirley and Waldo were the most accommodating people we have ever met. They welcomed us like family and helped whenever they could. Everyone left with a smile on their face and it’s all because of their fantastic venue setting up for a spectacular wedding. I am also writing reviews elsewhere to add more photos since this site only allows lower grade photos! Also, super flexible to meet Shirley and Waldo for a tour, I recommend seeing yourself!

    Blue Hill Farm is not only an amazing and unique place for a wedding but our experience with the owners was nothing short of extraordinary. Our original venue cancelled on us 6 weeks before the wedding date and Blue Hill Farm saved the day. They made everything easy, tailored to us and ensured that we had the most magical, smooth wedding. The ceremony overlooked beautiful rolling hills, our reception was in a tent among nature with lights hung around it and the dancing happened in a newly built carriage house. Some of our guests stayed at the house overnight and they loved it! After most people left, my husband and I jumped in the pool in our full wedding regalia! We didn't want a boring stuffy banquet hall and the hosts made sure we had our dream day fulfilled. They treated us like family from the day we met. We can't wait to come back for our anniversaries.
