Why or how did you pick your wedding venue? Was there something in particular about it that made you say, "This is the place!"
When envisioning our wedding day, we knew we wanted an outdoor ceremony and reception, during the late fall to hopefully take advantage of the beautiful fall foliage and gorgeous sunny days in Northern Virginia. Birkby House was a great, intimate venue with a beautiful classic Virginia look and feel. It was definitely the best choice for our wedding and we are happy we found it!
What is some advice you have for other couples who are in the midst of wedding planning or are just beginning their wedding planning process?
Definitely advise them to start booking vendors early! Know that there are thousands of details and options and decisions involved in wedding planning, which can feel overwhelming, but being able to tackle a few things at a time and spreading them out keeps it feeling manageable!
What are you most looking forward to about being married?
Being a team and partners as we navigate life's ups and downs. For the actual wedding day, we are looking forward to celebrating and spending time with family and friends who have supported us along the way.
