Our son and his wife got married at the Black Horse Inn in Warrenton, VA, last week. We were so pleased with this venue! The location is idyllic. The facility is gorgeous. The staff are highly professional: courteous, experienced, accommodating, responsive, and very welcoming and friendly. I highly recommend the Black Horse Inn as an excellent place to have a wedding.

We were married in October 2014 at the Black Horse Inn. We reserved the Inn for our date about a year in advance for a 2-day wedding event and peppered Lynn and her staff with questions throughout the year. She was unceasingly cheerful (and helpful) in her correspondence with us, and on our behalf to various vendors. She responds to emails within 24 hours, and acted as an effective day-of coordinator for both of our events.

In terms of logistics, throughout the weekend, she and her team consistently went above and beyond what was detailed in our contract. For example, they poured drinks and contributed additional decorations for our first event. For our second event, when our wedding ceremony went 45 minutes long, they communicated by walkie-talkie with our vendors and ensured that the rest of the evening went smoothly, helping us shift the timing of various events in our reception schedule. She also approved our outside caterer as a “preferred caterer” for the venue, reducing our catering cost substantially.

She’s also been great after the wedding. She mailed us all of the things that we forgot at the venue, including a 10lb box of wedding favors. In addition, she personally returned a keg for us to a town 45 minutes away when we ran out of space in our vehicles.

Finally, the venue itself is stunningly gorgeous inside and out. Our photographers commented on several occasions how much they enjoyed photographing us there. We reserved the entire house for the weekend for our wedding party and family. We highly recommend this, as we felt it led to a more intimate event. The rooms are beautiful, and Lynn is flexible on adding additional guests on cots, even on late notice (everyone we invited wanted to stay at the inn).

We looked at a number of venues in the DC / Northern Virginia area, and found this venue to be the best value for its cost. Holistically, we would absolutely choose this wedding venue again.

Our wedding at the Black Horse Inn was all we could have ever dreamed of. Lynn and Kathi were there for our every need during the weekend. Lynn also made the planning process very clear and straightforward, which was very helpful since we were planning from out of town. I cannot recommend this beautiful venue enough!

Throughout the roughly ten months that we worked with The Black Horse Inn to plan and execute plans for our daughter's wedding ceremony, Lynn Pirozzoli, and her staff, were exceptionally accommodating. Options were outlined, and, when we finalized our plans, the execution was flawless. The list of vendors that Lynn provided to us was very helpful, increasing our confidence that the "moving parts" of the wedding ceremony and reception would come together seamlessly. And they did! Numerous attendees commented on the beauty of the Inn's setting. In the end, with her hands-on approach, Lynn helped us organize a memorable ceremony - which is exactly what one wants for their daughter.

Thank you Lynn and everyone at the Black Horse Inn for welcoming us during our wedding weekend. Everyone was so welcoming and very helpful. Lynn was easily accessible and the venue was amazing. The views and set up for everything was just breathtaking. We had our rehearsal dinner at the Garden Terrace and my nephew could not get enough of the beautiful fish pond. On the day of the ceremony, we didn't get to see the Grand Ball Room until after our family pictures and we were amazed at the setup. The colors and decorations were just amazing. The design of the Grand Ball room made for perfect sun light access and set a happy mood during a beautiful dinner. We couldn't have asked for a much more beautiful venue and amazing owner to host our wedding. Thank you again Lynn and everyone at the Black Horse Inn, we will never forget the weekend.

The Blackhorse Inn was the perfect venue for our daughter's dream wedding. Lynn and her staff went out of their way to make sure that our guests staying at the inn felt "at home" from the moment they arrived. The Inn breakfasts were delicious and the presentation was exquisite. The rooms were very comfortable and the inn's decor is first-class, and restful. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, and the horses added to the charm as they posed for pictures. The hall sparkled with glamor, and the tented patio for the rehearsal dinner and cocktail hour, complete with chandelier, was breathtaking. Best of all, Lynn and her staff made sure that every detail was taken care of, so that we could all enjoy the day. Our guests all commented on the beauty and sense of relaxed fun they had at the wedding. When we packed up on Sunday, it felt like we were saying goodbye to family. It is with heartfelt joy that we recommend The Blackhorse Inn as the perfect wedding venue.

What an amazing venue to host your baby girls wedding to the man of her dreams. From the moment we arrived at the Black horse Inn on Friday we felt the DC tension release and were able to sit back and relax. The staff at the Black Horse Inn made sure that every detail was taken care of so that the weekend would be relaxing and we could focus on celebrating the bride and groom. The planning was extremely easy with Lynn from day one and she was so helpful with hints and ideas to make the event perfect. Aside from the fantastic service, having the entire event in one place was amazing - it enabled us to truly enjoy the entire weekend celebration. We put the wedding party up in the main house and used the Hunt Box for us as well as a dressing area for the girls the day of the wedding which proved to be invaluable. At every turn the staff at the Black Horse would surprise us with Champagne or fresh baked cookies or sneak into our rooms when we were busy to ensure everything was perfect - which it always was. I have 5 children and this was the youngest daughters wedding and by far the most relaxed I've felt at any of them and the most I've been able to enjoy the events. Thank you Black Horse Inn for giving us a memory that will last a lifetime.

As the father of the bride I had a fair amount of anxiety about cost and details. I am not a detail guy. thankfully Lynn is a detail person. because the weekend was planned out in detail virtually minute by minute, I didn't have to worry, My family could just enjoy my daughter's special day. close family and friends stayed at the Inn for the weekend and our breakfast time together made for great family times. The entire venue is beautiful, the staff has a sense of urgency and is eager to please. The most important thing to me was when my daughter came up to me and gave me a big hug and thanked me for the perfect Wedding. THAT WAS WORTH EVERY CENT AND MORE. I would absolutely recommend The BLACK HORSE INN for any wedding that you want to remember forever.
