“One of the reasons we picked the Black Horse Inn was that you can rent the inn for the entire weekend for your family to stay. That took a lot of stress away! We were already there, no need to think about getting to the venue. Our non-family guests stayed at a nearby hotel, and Uber worked pretty well for them but sometimes the wait was longish for them to get an uber so keep that in mind if you aren’t hiring a shuttle to and from an outside hotel. The biggest reason was the venue itself. It was absolutely beautiful. We booked in the hopes that the weather would be amazing and we would be able to use all the beautiful outdoor parts of the venue. Well. It rained. And it was still awesome. We were still able to have our ceremony outside before it began pouring. The cocktail hour was moved inside. We still had a blast! At first I felt bad about how much booking with the BHI cost, but you can tell where the money goes. Lynn and Michele worked together and paid attention to every detail. I did not worry about a thing the day of! They called all our vendors and made sure everything was set.
Many of our guests approached us during and after our wedding saying it was the best one they’ve ever attended. The caterer that was associated with the BHI at the time (It was recently turned to new owners so I’m not sure it’s the same caterer – Catering Reserved) was great. The food was so good! Anyways, the day couldn’t have gone any better. Price is a bit on the steeper side from what we originally budgeted, but it is Northern Virginia during peak time and we felt pretty pampered. The whole family was so pleased with the inn.”
