According to Historic Rosemont Manor owner, William Genda, the 2013 award from Virginia Living Magazine is one of several recent accolades that the Northern Virginia wedding venue has received. "We just also received word that we have been honored by WeddingWire.com for the second year running, receiving their highly coveted Bride's Choice Award," says Genda. "Since opening our doors in late 2010 and having our first wedding in January of 2011, we have been blessed to see tremendous growth and success as a premier venue for couples looking for a destination wedding in Virginia."
Rosemont was once home to Virginia Governor and US Senator Harry F. Byrd, Sr. and became a respite to Byrd's connections in D.C., including several US Presidents, high ranking military officials, and other dignitaries. The 200 year old manor has been fully restored and now hosts not only beautiful manor house weddings, but also teas, private events, and overnight B&B guests.
