Amazing venue with outstanding food and exemplary service. Douglas knows this business like no other and makes the planning process seem effortless. He is very quick to respond to emails and was awesome to work with. His staff is friendly and very efficient and voiced how much like loved working for Douglas. I felt like a queen on the day of the wedding as they delivered champagne and snacks to the bridal suite and made sure we were taking care of all night. The venue itself is gorgeous and I loved the location. I wish they had a restaurant so we could go back and have dinner there because the food is soooo good and it is so beautiful!!

The day of our wedding, Whitehall came through for us 100%. There was not a single problem that I am aware of, everything ran smoothly, and the food was even better than at the tasting! The whole room was set up exactly how we planned and we did not even hire a wedding day coordinator. The venue is one of the pricier venues at about $100 a person when it is all said and done, but I would do it all over again. I got the most amazing compliments about the lighting, food and service and you can't beat the scenery. I could not have planned for the day to go any better. Douglas is a fantastic guy and is great to work with! The month before your wedding he is very attentive to every detail and makes sure he has all of his notes to reflect exactly what you want. Douglas was unfortunately out of town for our wedding but the communication with our event captain was perfect. Huge thanks to Whitehall!

Douglas and his team at Whitehall was nothing but excellent. We had a ton of little, specific things and Douglas accommodated them all. His flexibility and planning up to the wedding was impressive, but his entire staff was so friendly and on top of on our actual wedding day. We had numerous guests tell us how friendly the staff was. Before the ceremony, the staff made sure the entire bridal party was taken care of and brought us whatever we needed. If you're looking for a beautiful venue who's staff is easy to work with then look no farther.

I had my wedding Sept 16th, and I have nothing but AMAZING things to say about Whitehall Manor. Douglas was amazing to work with!!!! From being responsive to answering all questions and providing suggestions on anything I wasn't sure about. The food for our wedding was a fusion of Italian American and Latin food and it was amazing! We are still getting compliments from our guests. The customer service was exceptional and the staff even helped me out with personalized items more items that I brought in for the event. I had actually forgotten to tell them what to do w/ some of the items and come the night of, everything was set and done to perfection. WH staff truly read my mind! This of course is due to the many years of experience they have doing weddings. I also have to say Francisco, who was in charge of making sure everything was going according to plan was exceptional!!! His customer service together w/ all Whitehall staff exceeded my expectations tenfold!!
Take it one an OCD Project Manager bride, now wife; if you want a stress free wedding day, Whitehall is the only way to go!!!
Thank WH team for all that you did!! My wedding would not have been the same w/out you.

The venue is absolutely gorgeous, and it was the perfect wedding day for the ceremony and reception! The staff is incredibly professional, friendly, and attentive... and the servers were so well-dressed for our wedding reception. I've had nothing but wonderful feedback from all of the wedding guests on the venue and the staff. Some are even now planning to have their own wedding there! Douglas was so quick to respond and answer all questions thoroughly throughout our entire wedding planning process, and offered great feedback. He was very flexible to accommodate all of our special requests, and worked with us to ensure that we had the perfect day, staying within our budget. Several things we had that other venues wouldn't allow were rose petals, candles, sparklers, and we were able to provide our own alcohol for the bar. If you decide to choose Whitehall for your special day, I recommend sticking to their list of preferred vendors if possible. I went with a cake vendor that wasn't on the list and that is my only regret from my wedding day. If you're looking for a wedding cake baker, absolutely avoid Edibles Incredible (Reston, VA).

As a planner I have seen venues run the gamut between barely functioning to top notch. Whitehall manor, Douglas, Francisco and their team are the perfect example of everything a wedding venue should be!

First, starting with the beautiful manor house with all of it's historic, yet classically and beautifully done features is a fantastically lovely and comforting space for the bridal party and guests alike. Several rooms are available for either side of the wedding party to get ready on the day of that are well appointed with plenty of AC on a hot day, comfortable places to rest and the staff has delicious food prepared so they can enjoy and relax.

The grounds are meticulously maintained and are absolutely stunning for an outdoor ceremony or cocktail hour. Tucked into the rolling hills of Bluemont, it is an ideal location for anyone looking to getaway but still be close to civilization!

The staff is really what makes Bluemont the incredible place that it is. With most of the staff members being there for several years and Francisco, the lead on everything being there for 20 years you are certain to be in capable hands! I've experienced brides signing on to a venue only to find their venue coordinator left later that year and they were dumped with a new one! This isn't something that you have to worry about at Whitehall! They have a system that is so efficient it puts all other systems to shame, even Chik-Fil-As famous assembly line service can't touch what Francisco and his team manage to do.

Overall, I think Whitehall is an ideal venue for anyone looking to get married, come for the beautiful architecture and book for the incredible service!

Whitehall was an amazing place to get married! The cost of the venue for ceremony and reception was very reasonable and a good deal for all you get. The staff there is wonderful! On our wedding day they made sure everything was set out and perfect before guests came. They continued to check in on us throughout the day and even had a tray of drinks and water waiting for us and our bridal party as soon as we had walked back down the aisle! Douglas is a pleasure to work with and keeps brides and grooms informed with a checklist of "to-do's" leading up to the wedding. The food from Celebrations Catering is fantastic! Our guests couldn't stop saying how yummy everything was. The grounds are beautiful! There are so many places to get good pictures. One of my favorites was out by the old train caboose. We cannot say enough good things about Whitehall!

USE THIS VENUE. Or at the very east visit here first when looking at venues. The gentleman who does all the coordination with you is FANTASTIC. It was the first place we went and we fell in love immediately, but he told us he would hold our date and told us to go look at other places to be sure Whitehall was what we wanted. He gave us tips on where to look for extra costs and the tricks people tried to pull to get more money out of us. And there were a number of places we looked at after that did try to hide things like that tables and chairs were an extra charge. The one thing some people might not care for is that they have in house catering, and I know a lot of places that means an exorbitant amount of money for generally not great food. That is not the case here their food was cheaper by plate than most of the catering places we looked at, had more food on a plate than all of them, and was fantastic. We got compliments on the food and more than one request for contact information so that they could use the catering which can be done off venue as well. The people were polite, helpful, made sure that my wedding ran smoothly, and we got married on their lawn of four leaf clovers . I can not speak any higher of them, and can only recommend that you look at Sundays when you plan your wedding because depending on the vender they can give you a hefty discount (we save a total of about 6-7,000 dollars) since most people want to get married on Saturday.

When we were looking for venues in Northern Virginia, we wanted to get a good feeling that we can trust the people who we would be working with. We met Douglas and it was a perfect match. He and his team were accommodating and attentive from day one. His catering company provided excellent food that our guests loved. He made a suggestion for using up lighting which made a huge difference in the setting. Douglas responded to our questions and requests promptly. He was very friendly and helpful throughout the time we were preparing for the wedding. On the day of the wedding, Francisco, the catering captain, and the rest of the team were very attentive and on point. We never had to ask for a drink or food, it was already available. It's like they read our minds! We felt relaxed and were able to enjoy our celebration! Thank you so much!

There isn't enough to say about this place, and I'm sure I'll just be echoing the other reviews.. this place is amazing. It's gorgeous and the pics you get here are amazing. Douglas is wonderful to work with - so attentive and helpful with all aspects of planning. We amazingly found an opening less 6 months away and decided to take a chance on planning very quickly. I don't think we could have managed this anywhere else! Douglas helped so much with advice, keeping us on track, and some wonderful vendor recommendations. He was able to accommodate any wacky request we might have - including my complicated signature drink. The day was perfect - despite almost having rain, which Douglas gave his expert opinion on and was right that we would be ok for the ceremony outside! There's always a plan B and maybe a C too. :) The staff was so wonderful.. everything was perfect. People kept telling me how amazing everything was. And the food.. while I barely ate personally (typical), the guests were raving about it. Even weeks later, a guest told me how the filet was the best they ever had. There's also just an air of sophistication you get here.. even down to pouring all beers into a nice pilsner glass. So many nice touches that made the day that much more special. Being able to bring our own alcohol was key as well - as opposed to wineries where I assume you have to use their wine. If you want a beautiful, rustic, charming, country wedding, this is your place. And as they do so much for you, it is reduces a lot of the stress as well.
