Raspberry Plain, situated on fifty lush, green acres in Leesburg, VA, with views of the expansive Catoctin Mountains, is the perfect spot for couples looking to host their wedding in a quaint, Southern venue, indoor or outdoor, from fifty guests to two hundred guests. It has been around since 1731: rooms are filled with antique furniture, period paintings, gilded mirrors, and ornate Oriental rugs. These features, along with its burgundy walls, elegant chandeliers, and hardwood floors give the mansion an old, stately, and sophisticated feel.
Raspberry Plain provides four ceremony locations and two reception locations – allowing couples to host their entire wedding celebration in one place. Each of these sites has its own unique charm and beauty. The employees at Raspberry Plain are known for their Southern charm and hospitality. The venue has tables and gold Chivari chairs for indoor receptions as well as white wooden folding padded chairs for outdoor ceremonies. Love that those are included!
For ceremonies, you have the option to seat your guests in one of four areas, three outdoor and one indoor.
First, there is the North Lawn, overlooking rolling hills of farmland and forest for those who love gorgeous scenic views and natural, rustic settings.
Perhaps the Southern-style mansion is more your taste, in which you may choose to set up your chairs on the South Lawn, facing Raspberry Plain’s stately brick mansion with brilliant white pillars.
Have you always dreamt of your wedding taking place in an enchanting, elegant garden? Then you may prefer the Formal Gardens, where the aisle you walk down is actually a path winding through thick shrubs studded with colorful flowers and past fountains strewn with petals. As music softly and sweetly announces your arrival, march underneath lush, green, natural archways of boxwoods on your way to alter.
Finally, there is the Grand Conservatory, a bright and open room with walls of windows letting in gorgeous light. Arrange up to two hundred chairs atop the suprisingly smooth cobblestone floor underneath a vaulted, cathedral ceiling, and string up white lights around the room for an extra sparkle and cheer during any season. Another feature of this room is the large balcony above the seating area where a band can sit and play during the ceremony or reception.
After the ceremony, take your guests to the Grand Conservatory or Carriage House for the reception. In addition to holding your wedding ceremony in the Grand Conservatory, you can also choose to set up dining tables and dance space inside the bright, window-filled room. The twinkle-light strung trees will look even more glamorous at night while guests celebrate the special day.
The Carriage House is the perfect reception location for those with smaller guest lists looking for a more smaller, more quaint celebrations, holding up to fifty guests. It is a beautiful house filled with light, boasting bright, cheerful yellow walls and turquoise armchairs that add to its cozy charm. It is certainly a warm, intimate atmosphere, and guests will feel like they are celebrating in someone’s home. If you celebrate Christmas and host a wedding during the holiday season, Raspberry Plain will even set up a beautifully decorated tree in the corner of the room, full of glittering lights and ornaments to add a hefty dose of cheer and merriment to the already joyous occasion.
