Most people focus on the ceremony and reception space when choosing a wedding venue. But it's wise to also consider the spaces where you and your wedding party will be preparing for the day. As the backdrop for your "getting ready" photographs, you want the space to be well decorated and free of clutter.
It's also very important to take some time for some quiet moments before your wedding. This bride retreated to Riverside at the Potomac's study, decorated with equestrian paintings and awards from the family's history. A small window gave just enough late afternoon light while she reflected on the day she had been anticipating for so long.
Riverside offers many beautiful locations, not just for your ceremony and reception, but for preparing for your wedding day. The stone house is decorated with timeless antiques and other treasures. It accommodates wedding parties as they add those final touches to their hair and makeup.
Under the reception area, the horse stalls have been renovated into a cocktail hour space and a retreat for the groom and his groomsmen to relax while waiting for the ceremony to begin.
