Bridal Reviews

Is Rosemont the perfect location for your dream wedding?

Don’t just take our word for it – here’s what our brides are saying:

Your Rosemont Wedding.

“Rosemont was a dream come true. When John and I walked in, it just felt so right – we knew we were hooked. It was like comparing apples and oranges to other venues because of what Rosemont could offer in their all-inclusive First Lady wedding packages. We went for the ultimate Jackie O package and were so glad that we did. All of our immediate family, bridal party, and a few other relatives were able to stay on site thanks to the extra cottages that Rosemont renovated.” – Whitney

“My wedding at Rosemont turned out to be just the way I wanted it! I felt like I was in a fairytale the entire day. The staff was so organized from the very beginning months prior to the wedding, which made the big day a breeze. They helped me to plan the day just the way I wanted it, and gave wonderful advice to help make the day run smoothly. My wedding was beautiful and I wish I could do it all over again!” – Tatiana

 

“Simply Gorgeous and Romantic! Jay and I got married here at Rosemont Manor overlooking the beautiful grounds. It was my fairytale wedding! The grounds at Rosemont are absolutely stunning. Once you go past the lobby, be sure to check out the front portico and balcony and you will understand why we fell in love at first sight. Another bonus was being able to accommodate our entire bridal party to stay the entire wedding weekend under one roof. We ended our venue search here. Our reception was in the Carriage House on the property which is honestly the best. Our wedding was so romantic thanks to this place. You don’t even need that many decorations – they would simply lose the competition with the view. Also if you have special dietary requirements for your party, Celebrations Catering is very accommodating. The chefs were very creative and came up with delicious dishes that also looked beautiful! The Rosemont staff worked tirelessly to accommodate us and answer any questions and help us every step of the way throughout the entire planning process. We used the Byrd’s Nest Honeymoon Cottage to get dressed as well as for our honeymoon suite and could not have been happier with the room and the service. Very romantic and luxurious. We are very much looking forward to coming back here for our future anniversaries. Thank you to the Rosemont family for creating the most perfect place for our wedding!” – Krista

 

“Here are some of the main reasons why Rosemont was the perfect place for my wedding – and really, just about any Virginia wedding:

1. Gorgeous Location and Venue.
From the sprawling, gorgeous property to the stunning manor house to the one of a kind carriage house for your reception, you won’t find a more beautiful spot.

2. Incredibly Helpful Staff.
From start to finish, Rosemont and its staff made wedding planning as simple as can be. My friends and coworkers repeatedly commented to me before the wedding that I was the most relaxed bride they had ever seen. While much of that has to do with my amazing mom, much also has to do with all the effort the Rosemont staff puts in to streamlining the planning process. For example, we did not have to spend time interviewing any vendors because Rosemont has preferred vendors that are phenomenal.

3. Hosting Friends and Family.
One of the primary selling points was hosting guests on the property. We had about 70 guests stay with us, and all felt pampered and at home.

4. Incredible Food.
David at Celebrations Catering could not have been nicer, more passionate or accommodating. I still can’t get that whatever we wanted for dinner, we could have. I mean, we had five different dinner options for our guests! (For that matter, I also can’t get over Michael, Rosemont’s wedding planner, asking me what we wanted the manor guests to be served for breakfast. When I asked, “What are my options?” Michael replied, “Well, what do you want? We can do anything.” Amazing.)

5. Feels Like Home.
Best of all, Biff, Michael, Bill and the rest of the staff really made me and my now-husband feel like part of the Rosemont family. It was the closest thing I can imagine to getting married at my own family’s estate – if we had one!If you want to get married in the Virginia countryside, there is no better place than Rosemont.”  -Katie

“Rosemont is the perfect wedding setting and a hidden gem! All of our guests were amazed that they hadn’t been to this gorgeous place before. We did the full wedding weekend package and it was perfect. It was so wonderful to have all of our family and friends together there for the weekend. It also made everything much more relaxing.We kicked off the weekend with a great rehearsal dinner out on the portico Friday night, the view from the dinner tables was breathtaking. On Saturday morning almost everyone took a leisurely walk around the property and just enjoyed the great weather and beautiful scenery. It did start to rain about an hour before the ceremony and everyone was so helpful and flexible, all of the ceremony items were moved up to the portico and I don’t think anyone even noticed the rain.For the experience and atmosphere here it is well worth the cost, which is actually very reasonable considering everything that is included.”  — Kelly

 

“I compiled a list of dozens of vineyards, wineries, and historic manor houses in the Shenandoah area. The very first one we visited was Rosemont. We were stunned by how beautiful it was, and the staff (three of them!) took the time to sit down to talk to us. We were not to realize until later how rare that was. My husband was ready to sign the paperwork right away. I was a little intimidated by the price, and insisted we visit all the other places on our agenda before making a decision. I was amazed. For not much less than Rosemont was asking, we could rent out barely decorated garages, muddy fields, rundown old houses, or almost inaccessible, inappropriately small buildings. It was staggering. We got back to Rosemont as soon as we could, and booked the First Lady Wedding package.I am so glad we did. Working with Rosemont made planning our wedding probably as stress-free as such an endeavor could be. They were creative in helping us come up with pie-in-the-sky ideas, and realistic in helping us address our budget. They worked with us on the size of the wedding and reception, and proposed locations for each. Staying in one location all weekend—for the rehearsal dinner, wedding, and reception—gave the whole weekend a wonderful sense of self-containment and continuity. And the historical beauty of the house is not to be rivaled.In my experience, not many people can honestly say they had the perfect wedding. Thanks in large part to Rosemont, I am one person who can.”  — Brittany

 

Your Rosemont Wedding.

“When we starting looking for venues we visited a few before Rosemont and they were fine, but when we came to Rosemont there was no need to look any further, that was our venue. We met with Rosemont and Celebrations Catering staff who explained all of the packages and food options and were even willing to work with us on the date. We decided to reserve all of the rooms and have the weekend experience but on a Thursday/Friday instead of a Friday/Saturday. All of our friends and family are still talking about how much they loved our wedding at Rosemont and our best man really summed it up when he said that it felt formal and still like a home and very comfortable at Rosemont which is exactly how we felt too.Even though we were lucky enough to have wonderful weather on our wedding day and we were married on the back lawn, I never worried about the forecast after we booked Rosemont because as the other brides have mentioned, there are plans B and C just in case it rains – you can use their gorgeous portico or get married inside the main house in the foyer. I loved having those options, and they even suggested a few different areas on the lawn to have the ceremony if the weather cooperated enough to have it outside.” – Peggy

 

“Rosemont Manor made for an absolute dream wedding. The manor house and grounds are absolutely stunning and the Rosemont staff was professional and extremely helpful. Throughout the entire wedding planning process they catered to our every need, constantly making us feel like we were their top priority!  They put so much care and love into the manor house and grounds and it really shows!”  – Sarah

 

Your Rosemont Wedding.

“It was really important to us to find a balance between something elegant and classy yet relaxed, and Rosemont was every bit of that. It felt very regal because of the beautiful woodwork, intricate home decor, and colonial colors yet homey because our family and bridal party could run upstairs to their respective rooms to change, rest, or freshen up. The staff were amazing to work with as well. The wedding and guest services staff members were easily accessible and very reasonable. I had several special requests and they were able to work with me on basically everything. The catering they use is phenomenal. We had a strolling reception because we had so many guests and everyone complimented us on the delicious and elegant food.
I honestly cannot say enough good about my experience at Rosemont. We told them our budget and they were able to figure out a way to give us our fairly tale reception. If I had to do it again – I wouldn’t change a thing.” – Melissa

 

“AMAZING VENUE! Rosemont was the perfect backdrop to our two day Bangladeshi-American wedding extravaganza. We really felt like Rosemont was our home for the weekend. The pictures came out unbelievably great, the weather was superb and the staff and service was amazing. It’s been a month and our guests and family are still talking about our wedding. It wasn’t just a big day for Sean and I; Rosemont helped us throw a fantastic party for everyone in attendance! We will return for many years to come.” — Sarwat
