There’s a new wedding venue debuting in Northern Virginia in April 2019 — Historic Rosemont Springs.
For years, couples have been enjoying the class and elegance of Historic Rosemont Manor, a 200-year-old mansion which faces out over the Shenandoah Valley toward the Blue Ridge Mountains. Rosemont Manor has a rich political history. It served as the home of Harry S. Byrd, Sr., governor of Virginia, and as a civil war battlefield site. Seven U.S. presidents have visited the property, as well as other world-renowned people like Albert Einstein and Charles Lindbergh. Now, there’s another elegant option on the grounds of the manor.
Historic Rosemont Springs in Berryville, Virginia is a beautiful new Amish-built post and beam barn, featuring a breathtaking waterfall, garden terrace and large stone fireplace. Bridal parties and guests can celebrate their union in a private wooded setting with seating for up to 400. The barn is climate controlled and offers a catering kitchen, indoor bathrooms, ample parking, child care facilities, separate bride and groom preparation rooms, and overnight accommodations for guests.
The customizable nature of Historic Rosemont Springs is sure to make it a favorite for weddings. With 6800 square feet of space and a variety of decorating options, brides can truly make the setting their own.
“Couples can bring in their own caterer or use the full-service caterer from the manor house,” said owner William Genda. “They can also bring their own alcohol, take advantage of our tuxedo delivery service and opt for our full wedding planning services.”
Historic Rosemont Springs offers planning services ranging from help only on the day-of the event to covering everything throughout the entire process. They also provide a list of recommended vendors to help with planning. And when it comes to decorating the barn to suit personal tastes, the venue allows couples a great deal of options.
“The barn has fantastic lighting,” said Genda. “We have both uplights and downlights, chandeliers, LED color-changing strips, and even bistro lights we can string if requested.”
The Genda family purchased Rosemont in 2009 and rezoned it to allow it to become a wedding venue.
“My daughter said it would make a great place to get married, and she actually got married here at the manor in 2015,” Genda said.
Brides and grooms will find a variety of pricing options at a much lower price point than similar options throughout Northern Virginia.
“The pricing for our barn is thousands less than any other high-end barn in the DC area,” he said.
With rental options ranging from an entire weekend to only six hours, this is another area couples can easily tailor to meet their needs.
And Historic Rosemont Springs isn’t just for brides and grooms. The beautiful, climate-controlled space is well-suited for corporate galas, family reunions and other large gatherings, as well.
Join them for their grand opening and wedding show on April 14, 2019. Experience all the venue has to offer, and meet photographers, caterers and other vendors who can help you shape your perfect day.
Historic Rosemont Springs is located at 16 Rosemont Manor Lane in Berryville — just 10 to 15 minutes from Winchester and 45 minutes from Dulles. Visit their website to learn more.
