Magical Wedding Experience, Start to Finish
We had a magical experience with Rose Hill Manor and Gala Cuisine for our wedding this past November. The folks at Rose Hill are extremely professional and know how to make life less stressful for the happy couple. From the moment we reserved Rose Hill all the way through our wedding weekend, the staff were responsive and attentive, seeing to every detail and doing their best to help us realize our vision for our wedding day. We must give a special shout-out for our astoundingly helpful coordinator Caitlin (with Iconic Events) who made sure the evening flowed smoothly and people knew where to go so that we could focus on the more fun parts of the day. Caitlin and the rest of the staff showed great flexibility and organization in managing the flow of events throughout the day, between rooms, and with indoor and outdoor moving pieces. We had hoped for an outdoor ceremony, but due to the chilly weather, we were able to make a day of decision to hold the ceremony in the small ballroom. The staff expertly flipped rooms during the cocktail hour to smoothly transition the whole space for the reception.Sent on 01/14/2019
As far as the venue itself, Rose Hill recently remodeled with wood floors (amazing for dancing) and a new coat of paint. The facility is gorgeous. Our wedding photos turned out incredibly, both the indoor and outdoor shots. Our wedding guests have repeatedly remarked to us since the event how beautiful the venue was. We opted to go with in-house catering through Gala Cuisine for the food. I was initially hesitant about this, since I have eaten much sub-par food over the years. However, Gala Cuisine knocked it out of the park. Multiple wedding guests told me it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding reception. The staff also made sure that my bride and I ate, going so far as to follow us around with a plate of appetizers during cocktail hour and later serving us a plated dinner (the rest of the guests had a buffet).
Thanks to all the RHM staff involved who made our wedding that much extra special.

We just booked Rose Hill Manor as our venue about a month ago. We just went back to show my parents and I'm so happy they are as much in love with it as we are. The property is gorgeous and Antonia and Gustavo are so responsive and lovely. And you can't beat the price! June 2018 can't come soon enough!Sent on 03/29/2017
Rose Hill Manor's reply:We are looking forward to a wonderful event! Stay warm this winter and we are excited to see you soon!!

Every good wedding has to have a solid foundation. If the foundation is good, everything else will fall into place. I am so glad we chose Rose Hill Manor to be our venue of choice this past March because Antonio and Gustavo are absolutely lovely to work with! From our very first meeting, I could tell that it was going to be a very good experience. I appreciated how forthcoming they were about their professional opinions regarding what works and what doesn't. Their combined years of experience clearly shows, and they know Rose Hill inside and out. Throughout the process, they kept us informed of changes and renovations they were making to the venue--which by and large didn't impact us very much, but I liked that we never got any "unpleasant surprises". Our guests still comment to this day how beautiful our venue was, and how smoothly everything flowed.Sent on 05/14/2018
If you visit them, you may feel a bit put-off by their recommended vendors table. However, I HIGHLY suggest using those vendors, because they know the venue inside and out, and you'll have the peace of mind that that vendor knows what they're doing. Whether RHM gets kickbacks from those vendors is largely irrelevant. This is your big day--the relationship the vendors have with RHM make coordination and planning so much easier, so that you don't have to worry about a thing.
The other nice thing I'll point out is that RHM is already pretty tastefully decorated, so you don't have to spend a ton on decorations. If you can, I highly recommend wrapping tulle and Christmas/twinkle lights around the balcony railing overlooking the grand ballroom. We did, and it made the reception hall look like something out of a fairy tale!

Rose Hill Manor is the perfect wedding venue. We had a gorgeous outdoor wedding followed by cocktails, dinner and dancing. The space was ideal and the staff is top notch. Antonio and Gustavo are a delight to work with!Sent on 10/09/2017

Wedding planning is stressful enough even before having to select the perfect wedding venue. We read countless online reviews, drove all over Northern Virginia booking visits, and even cross-referenced the same online-reviews via phone interviews with the venues when we couldn't see the place in person- yes, we were THOSE people. When we finally visited Rose Hill Manor we knew it was the place for us. Rose Hill Manor not only goes out of their way to ensure that the Bride and Groom are taken care of the day of, but they also ensure to make their professional recommendations while still being respectful of your wishes for your perfect vision, they also truly and genuinely want the day to be absolutely perfect. They really thought of everything and helped us plan small details we didn't even know needed to be planned (especially great for those of you who opt to go without a wedding planner). If you're getting married you're life is complicated enough. Do yourself a favor and BOOK THIS PLACE NOW! You have so many other details to get busy planning. Seriously, book Rose Hill Manor- you will thank yourself down the road. Rose Hill Manor ended up being more like family by the time everything was said and done. They really ensured that our big day was everything was everything we ever hoped it would be and more! ---Rebekah and ChrisSent on 09/19/2017
Rose Hill Manor's reply:It was truly special helping you plan your special day and achieve your vision. Come visit us on your anniversary and best regards for a happy and healthy 2018!!

Antonio and Gustavo were great! They were very useful in helping us find vendors, and were very accommodating to our needs. The building and grounds were beautiful and our guests loved it there (even despite it raining). I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a magical wedding day!Sent on 09/19/2017
Rose Hill Manor's reply:We really enjoy working with you on such a special day!

From the moment I walked into Rose Hill Manor of my initial tour of the venue until the moment we were cleaning up at the end of the reception, the staff at Rose Hill Manor showed themselves to be top of the class at what they do. Gustavo was extremely responsive to all calls, questions, and requests for tours of the facilities; since both sets of parents lived outside of Virginia, we had to accommodate multiple extra tours and visits. They were extremely flexible in allowing us to show up early for extra pictures, and helping us ensure that we were still on schedule. My parents also noted that they were very helpful with helping organize the other vendors and guide us through breaking down the decorations. Ultimately, they helped make my day extra special and ensured everything ran smoothly!Sent on 08/15/2017
Rose Hill Manor's reply:It is always a treat to host such wonderful families and help them achieve their vision for a perfect day!

I LOVED IT! The venue was beautiful and I fell in love the moment I saw it. I saw a lot of venues that for some reason just kept looking the same to me but even as I was pulling up to Rose Hill Manor I got a different feeling. I just felt like I could picture my finace and I getting married there and having a great time with family and friends. Aside from just the look of the venue, Gustavo answered all of my questions even before I asked them. I couldn tell that the staff at Rose Hill Manor were very attentive and I felt so comfortable with them. Both Gustavo and Antonio were quick to answer any questions and I had a moment of panic during the planning and they assured me and felt very relieved after speaking with them. I did not have a wedding planner and I had moved across the country after I booked with them. They were able to provide me with the flexibility to plan from far away. They are very knowledgable and accommodating. During the wedding they helped take care of the venue setups and even helped us line up for the wedding processional. I loved working with them and would recommend Rose Hill Manor to anyone!Sent on 08/23/2017
Rose Hill Manor's reply:Helping guide you to a dream wedding makes it all worth it for us at Rose Hill! Thank You

My husband and I were just married at Rose Hill Manor this past weekend. The venue is absolutely beautiful, and Gustavo and Antonio are fantastic to work with. Antonio replied to emails in an extremely timely manor, and Gustavo was a joy to meet with at our site visits. I was extremely impressed to see them both at the wedding too! The ceremony and recpetion were both absolutely beautiful!!Sent on 05/03/2017

Griffin · Married on 12/03/2016
My wife and I visited Rose Hill Manor and immediately fell in love. Not only was the venue absolutely beautiful, but the staff was so warm and welcoming. Along our journey to marriage, my wife and I needed to have last minute changes–seating arrangements, time of ceremony, day of event, and room use. During what could have and should have been a stress attack moment for my bride, Antonio and the staff jumped through hoops to make it easy, care free, and comfortable. The staff even suggested a caterer to us that we used; it was wonderful. All in all, I cannot say enough good things about rose Hill Manor. I have before, and will continue to recommend this venue to anyone who is interested in my opinion. Between what the physical venue has to offer, in addition to the staff and their help, a couple could not go wrong getting married here!Sent on 08/19/2017
Rose Hill Manor's reply:Even after 20 years we still are flattered when we receive such wonderful comments from our amazing couples! Thank You!

Antonio and Gustavo were so nice, quick to respond to the many questions I had, and provided great recommendations for caterers when ours didn't work out. The venue is beautiful and will definitely impress your guests. Ours was a small, 60 person wedding, but the space didn't feel too big at all. Highly recommend Rose Hill Manor for their excellent customer service.Sent on 11/13/2016
Rose Hill Manor's reply:What a wonderful wedding, thank you for allowing us to share the experience!

Having my wedding at Rose Hill was the best decision I could have made. :) The Manor House is gorgeous and SO spacious, the brick patio and lawn were perfect for pictures not to mention a beautiful ceremony with the pergola in the back round. There are two beautiful rooms upstairs for the bridal party to get ready in. The best part about Rose Hill was working with Gustavo and Antonio (the venue coordinators). Gustavo was so welcoming and easy to work with right from the get go of our first tour. Gustavo is very personable, understanding and with all his experience he gave us great advice on how to set up and decorate the venue for a party of 150. I HIGHLY recommend Rose Hill as a wedding venue or special event venue because the wonderful staff members they have to work with. My late October wedding was gorgeous and stress free at Rose Hill Manor and their wonderful team!Sent on 12/05/2016

I fell in love with this venue the first time I saw it in a random youtube wedding video. I had to get married there ! So I reached out to Antonio and met with Gustavo, and they made everything flow perfectly. I was welcome to visit the venue when I needed and Gustavo kept in constant contact with me. He not only supported the planning process but was there the day of the wedding helping with anything that needed to be done .Sent on 02/14/2017
I had a magical day and I recommend getting married here !
Rose Hill Manor's reply:Such a pleasure hosting you and thank you for the kind words!
Emily · Married on 09/24/2016
Rose Hill Manor is absolutely beautiful. Antonio and his staff are very kind and considerate, and they have this venue business down pat. The grounds are kept like new, and we couldn't have chosen a more perfect venue for our ceremony of 150 guests. This was actually the very first venue my husband and I went to see, and no other venue (of the many in the DMV area) lived up to the feeling we got when we entered the grounds, so we booked it as soon as we got the chance!Sent on 11/15/2016
Rose Hill Manor's reply:Thank you for the nice comments, the grounds are always evolving and looking so pretty!

I had an amazing experience with Rose Hill Manor, and I cannot say enough good things about the manager, Antonio. He answered every (and there were many!) question I had throughout the planning process in detail and incredibly quickyly -- no matter at what hour or day I contacted him. They truly went above and beyond to make sure we had a smooth and beautiful event, and I can't thank them enough for that. I would recommend this venue without any hesitations!Sent on 09/27/2016
Rose Hill Manor's reply:Thank you so much for such kind words! We love our brides and truly enjoy the process of planning each beautiful event! We just purchased Raspberry Plain Manor and hope to bring it into the fold with the first class customer service we are known for!
Jeremy · Married on 07/03/2016
We loved having our wedding at Rose Hill Manor, and have received compliments on how lovely the venue was, and how well the flow of the wedding worked. Antonio and Gustavo were very helpful for all the little things we needed, like a table for under the chuppah, or holding the curtains during introductions and when we walked down the aisle. It also was wonderfully convenient to be able to drop off things in advance, and to be able to get in early enough to properly prep before the wedding. Rose Hill Manor's responsiveness to all our questions and concerns, and those of our parents, in the preceding months, were also greatly appreciated.Sent on 07/25/2017
Rose Hill Manor's reply:We always strive to make thing stress free and respond right away. Thank you for sharing your special day with Rose Hill!

Hellen · Married on 06/04/2016
We had our wedding at Rose Hill Manor and we are so glad we did! I always wanted to get married in a manor and Rose Hill Manor was the first one we visited..and it was love at first sight. The area is secluded and the interior of the manor is just beautiful. The chandeliers and the fireplaces gave me that victorian look I always wanted. The groom and bride changing rooms are so lovely that I couldn't wait to get married! We visited many places after, but my husband and I could not get our minds off Rose Hill Manor. It was just perfect for our 100 guests wedding. We had our wedding outdoors and it was beautiful! We loved using the grassy fields next to the ceremony away as well for photography! Gustavo was so helpful and always available which was great for all my last minute questions. I strongly suggest you use Rose Hill Manor for your wedding. :) You will not regret it!Sent on 09/23/2016
Rose Hill Manor's reply:Thank you! We are very proud whole the amazing architectural details that make Rose Hill feel so special! In fact, we just purchased Raspberry Plain Estate, one of the most Historic Estates in Virginia dating back 1754! We are looking forward to implementing our high standards on this amazing piece of history!

Rose Hill Manor was an absolutely beautiful location and venue for our Wedding Ceremony and Reception. We were planning on having our Ceremony outside but unfortunately due to weather, everything had to be pushed inside. It's fortunate that Rose Hill was able to accommodate my guests indoors, and they were very professional about getting the second room set up quickly in time for the ceremony. Gusavo is absolutely lovely, wonderful to work with and very accomodating. Gala Cuisine was the caterer I chose, they work closely with Rose Hill, and they were also very accomodating. I live out of state, and they normally only do tastings during the week when I work, but they were able to set up tasting on the weekend to accomodate me. I do think the cost is a little expensive but you get what you pay for and in the end its worth it. The staff really works well together to make sure that your special day goes off without a hitch. Almost 2 months later, people are still telling me what a wonderful wedding it wasSent on 07/11/2016
Rose Hill Manor's reply:Thank you for such insightful comments! It's funny that in this day and age Rose Hill and our sister venue Foxchase are still the only two locations in the entire tri-state region they can adequately accommodate people indoors! Having three interior rooms of full capacity is crucial so that you can have your ceremony in one room, cocktails & hors d'oeuvres in a second room, and dinner & dancing in a third. With our recent purchase of the Historic Raspberry Plain Manor, Circa 1754, we plan to implement the proper three rooms system such as the one found at Rose Hill. I can't wait!
Nina · Married on 04/17/2016
I will be getting married in a couple months at Rose Hill Manor. My fiancé and I decided to go with this venue because it/s gorgeous. Antonio and Gustavo were very friendly and extremely professional. Antonio was very responsive to all my email correspondence and very accommodating to all my request (opening the manor a couple times for different members to see). I've been planning the wedding on my own and Antonio is very helpful in recommendations and suggestions which is honestly above and beyond what he has to do. I know I made the right decision in going with Rose Hill Manor and know the professionalism and friendliness will extend to the day of my wedding to ensure my day goes perfectly.Sent on 01/25/2016
