Today, we are debuting a brand-new feature on District Weddings…District Places!
Every Wednesday we’ll showcase a venue in the Greater D.C. area. We’ll show you the best wedding sites, rehearsal dinner locations, and even a few fun brunch and bridal shower spots. Hopefully, you’ll become more familiar with the fabulous venues D.C. has to offer — and maybe even fall in love with one or two (or twenty)!
First up…Oxon Hill Manor. I’ve had a crush on Oxon Hill Manor ever since I attended an event there hosted by Engaged! Magazine. Editor Doreen Tisone really knew she had found the next best D.C. venue when she first set eyes on Oxon Hill Manor for her daughter’s wedding.
Oxon Hill Manor is located just outside of metro D.C. in Oxon Hill, Maryland. The manor sits on a hill overlooking the Potomac River. Let me tell you…this venue has it ALL. Outside gardens. Rose bushes. A reflecting pool. A large terrace. Three gorgeous intimate rooms for dinner and dancing. A sweeping staircase leading up to a bride’s dressing room.
These pictures just don’t do justice to the beauty of this venue. Trust me, it really is spectacular. Here is a glimpse of what a wedding at Oxon Hill Manor could look like…

You gotta add Oxon Hill Manor to your list!
I am LOVING your emails (and comments) about how your mom found her dress for your wedding. Or how she is also struggling. Or how she doesn’t know where to start. I’m going to compile these tips and questions into a list, and I’ll post it for everyone later this week. I’m also recruiting an “expert” to share some light on the MOB dress dilemma. Keep sending your words of wisdom (and your pictures of your moms!) — no matter how small, every tip is helpful!
