“Gunston Hall is a National Historic Landmark owned by the Commonwealth of Virginia and administered by a Board of Regents appointed from The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America (NSCDA). Located just 24 miles south of Washington DC, Gunston Hall is an 18th-century Georgian mansion near the Potomac River in Mason Neck (city of Lorton), Virginia. Gunston Hall was once the center of a 5,500 acre tobacco, corn and wheat plantation. The house was the home of the United States Founding Father George Mason. George Mason IV was a fourth generation Virginian who became a senior statesman and author of the Virginia Declaration of Rights during the American Revolutionary era. He was among the first to call for such basic American liberties as religious toleration, freedom of the press and right to trial by jury. “
“Weddings on the historic grounds of Gunston Hall are truly a special occasion. With 550 acres of beautiful landscape and a breathtaking vista of the Potomac, you and your guests will have an experience to remember. Weddings at Gunston Hall can include the use of the grounds, the Ann Mason Room and its adjoining private courtyard.”
“The Ann Mason Room and grounds can accommodate up to 100 seated guests or 175 standing for your ceremony or reception. A full-size catering kitchen is available adjacent to the Ann Mason Room. An approved Virginia-licensed caterer is required for use of the kitchen.”
“Wedding packages may include tours of the historic mansion, private bridal changing quarters and a dedicated staff member. Due to our stewardship and preservation of this National Historic Property, Gunston Hall Mansion is not available for rental or interior photography.”
Gunston Hall is a beautiful wedding venue in the Washington DC area and makes an amazing backdrop for wedding photography.
