Though these two terrances are the most popular wedding sites, Oatlands wants your wedding to be uniquely yours. We are open to having ceremonies anywhere on the grounds. Come visit us to see all of the beautiful options! 


Cocktail Hour

Following the ceremony, your guests are invited to explore the lovely 4.5- acre gardens while enjoying beverages and hors h'oeuvres. For a special experience, the Historic Mansion can be made available for your guests to explore!



Reception Sites

Oatlands Pavilion

Past the Historic Mansion and Greenhouse, a winding path leads to elegant tented Pavilion with draped ceiling, chandeliers and concrete flooring complete with beautiful brick inlays creating natural sections within the space. The tent is a 50’ x 90’ frame tent providing plenty of space for you and your guests at your reception.

Tented Reception on the Front Lawn

Oatlands offers the option of a tented reception on the front lawn of the Historic Mansion. This lawn is an ideal vantage point from which to enjoy views of the Bull Run Mountains, the terraced gardens, and of course, the Historic Mansion.



Carriage House Reception

The main space, once used for carriages, is now ideally suited for your DJ and dance floor, while the original stable is transformed into your banquet hall. The 1903 Carriage House features a genuine rustic elegance with wood paneled walls, and original elements from when it was a working stable.
