The scene is straight out of an old screenplay. Imagine riding up in a horse – drawn carriage, gathering your petticoats, and delicately floating down the aisle to greet your soon-to-be partner –for-life. The environment is perfect for romance as you are surrounded by the evening starlit sky, incredible landscaping and all your loved ones wishing you well for a lifetime.
Step back in time at The Black Horse Inn, an enchanted setting for the most discriminating bride and groom. With its stately white columns, manicured lawns, beautifully appointed gardens and elegant hunt-country décor, this ideal location is conveniently accessible. Only 45 minutes from Washington, D.C. in Warrenton, Virginia, the Black Horse Inn offers not only excellent location, but also the charm and romance that make the most beautiful of wedding memories. Situated on 20 sprawling acres, thoroughbred horses traditionally “bless” each bride and groom on their wedding day.
Our reception facility, “The Gilded Fox” features a climate – controlled grand ballroom, seating for up to 200 guests, breath—taking panoramic views of thoroughbreds grazing in pastures, a stone fireplace and a stately flagstone terrace. The Inn can accommodate up to 100 guests for a cocktail-buffet reception, or parties of 30 for an elegant sit-down dinner. The garden terrace features a picturesque pond with a white-picket bridge, overlooking a gentle waterfall. A fountain graces this ideal location for elegant outdoor events.
Perfect for bridal photography, both candid and posed, the scenic landscape of the Black Horse Inn offers a grand wedding gazebo and a magnificent portico. The gazebo completes the perfect setting for wedding ceremonies, nestled in a gracious boxwood garden under a canopy of century – old trees.
Gracious sitting porches surround the Black Horse Inn, and each have glass panels to accommodate guests during inclement weather. Eight rooms, each with a private bath, are available for family, friends or out-of –town guests. The Black Horse Inn takes pride in giving brides and elegant, tasteful atmosphere in which to hold a reception, lasting the whole weekend, rather than just a few hours.
Allow the Black Horse Inn’s staff to take care of your details. Their professionalism and experience are uncompromised and can handle all of your wedding needs.
