Douglas is so wonderful to work with. I'm not sure how he stays so calm and collected working with so many brides. He's very responsive on email and he's willing to work with you to make whatever you want to happen, actually happen. He even accommodated our 20 person band. The venue is stunning no matter what time of year you have your wedding. The food is also amazing. Our guests were raving about the appetizers and dinner. All of the staff was very friendly the day of our event. We were so happy we booked our wedding at Whitehall. I can't imagine having had it anywhere else. They take very good care of the grounds as well so all our pictures outside were gorgeous!

I love Whitehall and am a little sad that now that our wedding has passed I don't have any excuses to make the trip back to the venue. Doug was a pleasure to work with from Day 1. He was very responsive and friendly and I knew once we booked the venue that we were in great hands. During the ceremony, everything was set up as I requested and Francisco did an awesome job taking care of us and working with our DJ to make sure the timeline was as planned. His staff even made plates for us from the buffet so we could spend more time mingling with guests. Whitehall is such a beautiful venue that you need very little outside decorations so we were able to save money on flowers & reception decor. The food was great too! It was much better than when we had our tasting there and everyone gave us positive feedback on it. You can also BYOB which saved us thousands of dollars and lucky for us we even had some leftover to take home. If I had it to do all over again I would chose Whitehall again!

My husband and I found Whitehall Manor through an internet search and decided to check it out. We fell in love with the venue and owner - Douglas! Right away we knew we had to get married at Whitehall Manor! Douglas was so helpful with getting us all set, from our contract to catering (with Celebrations, the onsite caterer) and everything in between. He was up front with pricing, so we knew there wasn't any hidden costs! Douglas worked with us and our wedding planner to make our day so special.
We had a complimentary tasting at the venue to try the different food options in hopes to narrow down our menu. We loved everything! We joked that it didn't matter what was for dinner because everything was so delicious! We ended up going with a plated meal, choice of fillet mignon or golden roast chicken, sides of roasted fingerling potatoes and grilled balsamic vegetables! Yum!!
On wedding day, we were allowed on site in the afternoon, I was in the bridal suite while my husband was in the groom's room. The wait staff brought us drinks and snacks throughout the day. Once it was time to start the ceremony, it was beautiful! We got married outside at the gazebo and had beautiful weather! (Luckily, Whitehall has a Plan B Option incase of bad weather!) Then during the cocktail hour, the bridal party and our family took photos with us. The wait staff was so awesome! They brought drinks and food around to everyone taking care of all of us!
During the reception, everything went perfectly! The food was delicious and hot! (The kitchen is right off the dance floor.) My husband and I were also given a plate of hors d'oeuvres during the meal! They wanted to make sure we had the full experience!
It was perfect and reasonably priced. We recommend Whitehall to everyone!

I would give Douglas and Whitehall 10 stars if I could. We had to book our venue and venues fairly quickly because we were moving away from the DC area 3 months after we got engaged. During our 15-month engagement, Douglas worked with us virtually for everything we needed. He is super responsive via email and was very flexible and accommodating. I wanted to add twinkle lights under the sky lights above the dance floor. He took it even further by installing outlets in the ceiling and ordering vintage looking hanging lights for our wedding. It was too cold to get married outside, so we did the ceremony inside under the skylights on the dance floor. The string lights really took the look to another level. I was able to come home only one time in between when we booked Whitehall and our wedding. Douglas allowed me to have a private tasting with the chef to pick out all our food because he knew there was no other time I'd be able to do it. When our DJ had to cancel on Thursday night, I called Douglas and he was able to set me up with someone new within 20 minutes. The only critique I would give to Whitehall is that they don't allow anyone in the facility until 3 hours before the event. It would've been a lot more convenient to get ready in the bridal suite, but we made it work off-site. The service staff was very attentive, respectful, and overall superb. Definitely book Whitehall; it's not only one of the best deals in the DC metro area, but you really get a lot of service for your money.

My husband and I just had our wedding reception at Whitehall Manor last weekend and it was an absolutely amazing experience!! Douglas was very attentive the entire time we worked with him, always answering my emails and phone calls very quickly. I felt like I could always rely on him and I didn't have to stress during the day of our wedding because I knew it would go flawlessly.

The day of staff was amazing to us and our guests! Francisco and his staff constantly checked up on my husband and I to make sure we had drinks and appetizers, even after cocktail hour ended. I've never felt so pampered! Our guests were amazed by the quality of the food and the service by the servers and bartenders. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for their wedding. Thanks Douglas and Francisco!

I cannot thank you enough for your contribution to our joyous event. The venue was beautiful. The staff was amazing. Everything, every detail was carried out better than we could have expected of any venue and staff. Our event at Whitehall Manor was flawless. One of the staff members even caught the porcelain cake topper in midair, with one hand, preventing what could have been a disaster. I would recommend Historic Whitehall Manor to anyone who wants a very detailed wedding and reception to be carried out beautifully inside or out. The food was exceptional, the manor was beautiful and felt like we were in a family home. All of the contributing vendors were treated with utmost professionalism. Thank you for an amazing event.

I can honestly say this was the absolute BEST place for us to have ever chosen to have our wedding. The property is absolutely gorgeous and stole our hearts when we started looking for a wedding venue, nestled in the mountains -- the historic building and beautiful outdoors should be award winning! Whitehall's POC, Mr. Douglas Armstrong is truly a phenomenal human being. He worked with us day, night, over the phone, email, Skype and in person to ensure we had the wedding of our dreams (and within our budget)! Thank you SO much Douglas!!!! EVERYONE at our wedding agreed the staff at Whitehall day of was over-the-top on point - they were polite, helped anywhere they could, immediately made us feel important and above all, neither the groom nor myself were ever without a drink all day. They even went as far as to fix our plate of food for us when the wedding was getting super hectic. Additionally, the food was out of this world. People are STILL talking about it. Future brides (& grooms) look no further, I assure you, you will not be disappointed! Thanks again to everyone at Whitehall who took care of us and made our vision a reality!!!!

As soon as I saw this venue online, I knew I had to check it out and work it into my budget. The mansion is FANTASTIC and the surrounding area is GORGEOUS at the least. I loved the private setting and beautiful decor inside. It's very easy to decorate to any theme you have and its so spacious with all the separate rooms on the main level and upstairs it was the best decision I made for my entire wedding. Douglas was amazing the entire planning period and so incredibly responsive to alllllllllllllllllll my emails. He was always welcoming and to the point. After going to so many venues and meeting so many sales people it gets really annoying when they give you the whole pitch and schmoozing. Douglas gave me all the information I needed and had a smile the whole time.

Now on to the food. I am STILL hearing about how amazing all the food was. It was a Korean/Italian wedding so the food was going to be under much speculation and the kitchen staff at Whitehall did not disappoint. Everything was delicious and there was not ONE negative thing I've heard about any of the food. The event captain Francisco was superb along with all the other staff. Everyone was asking my husband and I if we needed anything from water/alcoholic beverage or food. They even saved us some hor douvres because we didn't get a chance to even step foot into our cocktail hour. The landscaping was perfect and I couldn't have asked for a better location and scenery. It was everything I imagined it would be.

I cannot praise Whitehall enough for how they handle weddings. I signed on with them one year before my wedding, and throughout the whole planning process I was so impressed by their professionalism, organization, and expertise in planning, coordinating, and running weddings.

The main reasons we chose to have our wedding at Whitehall are:

1. The venue is BEAUTIFUL, ROMANTIC, and CLASSIC.
2. I loved that we would have the whole property to ourselves for the whole day, including beautiful rooms for the bridal party and groomsmen to get ready (separately), and we would not be rushed out for another wedding before or after us. There were also many different rooms/coves/balconies/decks where people could go, instead of some of the other venues I went to see that had EVERYTHING in one big room.
3. The bride and groom can decide on THE DAY OF THE WEDDING whether they would like to have the ceremony INSIDE OR OUTSIDE, depending on weather. This was VERY important to me, (and unique!) since I really wanted to be outside for the ceremony but did not want the stress of having to deal with bad weather.
4. The staff (I worked mostly with Doug, but they are all excellent) KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE DOING. THEY ARE EXPERTS.

Throughout the year, I had many phone calls with Doug, many of which HE INITIATIED to make sure we were on track with the planning and not forgetting any of the details. He made himself very available and had great tips on selecting vendors (what questions to ask, who to use, etc.), the ‘flow’ of the wedding, and gave great ideas for decorations that he has seen at the MANY weddings they’ve hosted there in the past.

It was such a load off of the planning that they provide the venue, the catering, the staff, bartenders (but not the alcohol, which you can easily buy at wholesale price instead anyway, and not the dessert), linens, and more. Note that the catering (everything included except alcohol and cake) is about $100 per person, which brings the price up q
