Site Visit: Whitehall Manor

17 08 2008

I recently did a site visit of Whitehall Manor in beautiful Bluemont, Virginia in preparation for a client for 2009. Coincidentally, I assisted one of my fellow planners the following week at the same venue. I wanted to share some photos from my site visit and from the wedding itself.

Advantages:

  • Beautiful outdoor option in the gardens
  • Great Hall is surrounded on 3 sides with windows, bringing the outdoors in.
  • Ample parking
  • Includes mahogany-colored Chivari chairs and tables
  • You can bring your own alcohol

Challenges:

  • Distance: Whitehall is approximately 1 hour from DC. Most people put their guests at hotels located in Leesburg which is about 20 minutes away.
  • Rain plan for indoor ceremony might require some guests to stand.

Neutral:

  • On site catering. Because Whitehall has in-house catering, you are required to use them.

Enjoy!
