It certainly feels like winter in Montgomery County, but it has not stopped our warm weather friends from visiting Rockwood!

The elusive Painted Bunting has been spotted all around us, mostly on the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth locks of the C and O Canal.

There are SO MANY THINGS that go into planning a wedding. The first decision is usually WHEN and WHERE. You want the venue to show off the season, whether it's fresh spring, summer fun, or a beautiful blustery fall.

Winter is a season that's often overlooked because it's cold and the trees are bare. But we are here to tell you: WINTER is an AMAZING time to host your wedding at Rockwood Manor. Just look at these photos from L and C's wedding last month!

Here are our top three reasons why we love winter weddings:

1. THE COZY FACTOR -- Cuddling up by our two fireplaces, and at our outdoor fire pit are favorite activities for our couples and their guests.

2. THEMED FOOD -- Talk to your caterer (at Rockwood Manor you can choose your own!) about leaning into the winter theme with a roasted entrees and delicious hot soups. End the evening with a hot chocolate bar and s'mores and your guests will be talking about your wedding for seasons to come.

3. THE PRICE TAG -- November to March, Rockwood Manor offers the BEST prices. Click to our website below to see for yourself just how affordable a winter wedding can be at Rockwood Manor.

BONUS TIP -- No sweating in your wedding clothes! (Just saying...that's important!)

Visit www.RockwoodManor.org today to view our rate sheets and drop an inquiry on our sidebar.

Happy Planning!
The Rockwood Manor Team

We are improving our parking lot to make every event better and your visits easier:

• The exit road is nearly complete, creating better traffic flow in and out of the parking lot.

• A beautiful new curb was poured at the front of the Manor. This will provide a formal drop off area, and improve pedestrian safety.

• Up next, the new pedestrian ramp will allow guests staying at Skyview Lodge to access the fire pit and amphitheatre.

If you have any questions about how the construction may impact your upcoming event, please email: [email protected].

Delightful details at the Manor today for Steph and Mike!

Last night’s storm washed away the pollen and humidity leaving nothing but lush green oak leaves and blooming dogwood trees for their outdoor ceremony on the Patio.

Lots of family and friends took care of the decorations, including a stunning collection of family wedding photos going back 150 years!

Kim and Chef of @StoneSoupCatering are here, so you know everything will be tasty and memorable.

Thank you Steph and Mike and your families for making Rockwood a part of your story!

On Saturday, Allan and Annette made Rockwood a part of their story in a beautifully intimate ceremony on the Gazebo Lawn.

Check out these tips from Simply Breathe Events for dressing your groom in style!

Customize, Always. Who says brides are the only ones that need all the love on their wedding day? Recognizing our groom Allan’s swag in his very own personalized J.Crew suit jacket for their wedding at Rockwood Manor Retreats and Events. Also worth noting it was lined with the perfect shade of blue to eliminate any and all potential superstitious vibes. We take this wedding thing pretty seriously.
