"I had my October 28, 2011 wedding reception at the Mansion (ceremony was offsite). It's a beautiful venue located on a golf course and the grounds are well maintained. Unlike previous reviewers, I don't have any complaints regarding the rules or service. However, I didn't have much contact with the venue operators since my coordinator mostly dealt with them. That being said, I did call/email a few times and I always received a courteous, quick response. The only thing I desired to have which was not permitted were sparklers but that's understandable. I think the timing may be a little tight (vendors are permitted in no more than one hour before your scheduled event, with the exception of the caterer who is permitted to enter two hours early). I don't know what the "norm" is but if your vendor is a professional, they should be able to do what they need to do within the given time. All in all, a beautiful venue for a reasonable price."

"Absolutely Beautiful! My husband and I instantly fell in love with this luxurious venue! I couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else! The staff was great...very professional and helpful! ALL of our guests agreed...hands down, Oxon Hill Manor is the most beautiful wedding venue in our area! I couldn't believe it was so affordable!"

"D.C.'s hidden gem. I had both my ceremony and reception outside and it was perfect. The staff was friendly and helpful, they made my wedding even more special."

"Oxon Hill Manor was the venue we choose for our wedding ceremony and reception. It is absolutely gorgeous! When we first saw Oxon Hill Manor we knew that this was the place that we wanted to get married. The manor is beautiful and the gardens are breath taking. The staff was flexible and very easy to work with. They kept us informed and answered all of our questions. We call it the best kept secret. It is very accessible to the National Harbor. We were extremely pleased with Oxon Hill Manor."

"My guests all raved about the venue for our outdoor wedding ceremony on page. Ballroom's outdoor patio at the end of August. The patio has a natural aisle and easy viewing for our 150 guests. The white garden chairs provided and the backdrop of the golf course and manicured gardens really impressed my guests. The patio has plenty of electrical outlets for music and videography set up, too, which came in handy. The area is so pretty it requires minimal decor, which worked for my budget! We had our reception inside the ballroom proper, and the set up is really perfect."

"Billingsley House Museum is an old plantation home on 430 acres of land overlooking the Patuxent River. The venue is so beautiful and exactly what we wanted. They provide a tented patio with tables and chairs. They are very flexible about caterers and you can hire any licensed catering. It really was the perfect setting for our outdoor fall wedding."
