My husband, Aaron and I, got married at Riverside on the Potomac in Leesburg, VA on July 16th, 2016. We could not have been happier with our choice of venue. When we walked the property back in January of 2015, we knew instantly that this was where we were supposed to get married. Working with Suzi was a breeze and we hired their granddaughter to be our day-of-coordinator. Delia-Anne’s knowledge of the property and the local vendors proved to be very helpful.
When we decided on Riverside, we knew there could always be the potential of an afternoon thunderstorm in the middle of July. Of course we had our hearts set on the outdoor ceremony on their beautiful patio overlooking the pond – but, as I learned throughout my journey, weather was about the only thing I could not control. We knew that our “plan B” was just as good as the patio, and needed to execute this plan on the day of our wedding. Getting married in the stables proved to be an absolutely magical experience. One guest even noted that it felt like a scene from the movie The Notebook. It was very intimate with all of our 160 guests looking on as we shared our vows and went through the ceremony. I am a firm believer that rain on your wedding day IS in fact good luck!
The reception was absolutely perfect in the restored barn and our guests ate, drank, and danced the night away.
I loved that this venue truly spoke for itself. I did not have to do much in terms of my own decor and simply just added personal touches to the cocktail hour and reception area (flowers, pictures, etc.)
I highly recommend Riverside on the Potomac for your wedding! We were blessed with a perfect day!
