Past the brick and wrought-iron gates, on more than 10 acres of carefully tended grounds, stands Aldie Mansion. While its period charm adds to the ambiance of any special event, this restored mansion offers the space and amenities of a more contemporary venue.
In particular, the new 2,400-square-foot atrium presents many unique possibilities. Designed in keeping with Aldie's Tudor architecture, it accommodates a formal dinner dance for up to 200 guests.
The original oak-paneled Library, Boardroom and Great Hall with its bluestone floor all feature distinctive fireplaces and are ideal for smaller gatherings. Outside, splashing fountains, terraces, rolling lawns and rare specimen trees create a thousand lovely photo backdrops.
I cannot say enough about how much I loved the Aldie Mansion. Beautiful ballroom and back yard. I loved that I could have the ceremony and reception both indoors and outdoors. My wedding planner from Aldie was on top of things. Bridal suite upstairs was nice to get ready before the ceremony and to have a quiet moment with my husband right before cocktail hour. Our toast on the balcony overlooking the patio and fountain was amazing. Would absolutely recommend!
