Raspberry Plain, highly regarded as one of Northern Virginia’s premier wedding venues has been hosting wedding receptions, ceremonies, rehearsal dinners, anniversaries, and corporate events since 1994 in Virginia’s Hunt & Wine Country. Raspberry Plain sits amongst many vineyards and wineries, also known as, ‘DC’s Wine Country’ and is recognized for creating unique and memorable events that accommodate various styles from southern rustic to classical elegance.
Known since 1760, Raspberry Plain rests on 50 rolling acres overlooking the Catoctin Mountains in Loudoun County, Northern Virginia. Each room has historical and architectural detail and character, which are enhanced by period furnishings and paintings. The estate boasts spectacular views enhanced by The Grand Conservatory, which invites guests to enjoy an indoor setting with an outdoor view. One of the many highlights of The Grand Conservatory is the vaulted ceiling with walls of cathedral windows arching at the gables for you and your guests to be treated to sunset dinners and dancing with views of the stars. The Formal Gardens are graced by arched boxwoods and make it the perfect setting for an outdoor ceremony and entertaining. The backdrop of The Mansion, lush grounds and breathtaking views of the mountains, pastures and pond make Raspberry Plain a beautiful venue for your event.
The Carriage House at Raspberry Plain is the perfect setting for intimate events and hosts up to 50 guests. Appointed in the French country style, it is popular for rehearsal dinners and as the day-of Bridal Suite, which allows the bride and bridesmaids to get ready and enjoy before the wedding. Renovated in 2009, your guests will be treated to a bright and open space complete with a private garden to entertain.
We at Raspberry Plain aim to make you and all your guests feel welcomed and entertained by our historic charm and southern hospitality. We strive to be a leader in helping and facilitating your wedding with our exceptional service and attention to detail. Raspberry Plain takes pride and enjoys that many of our clients come back to visit and reminisce after their event.
About Alyssa Renee Photography:
As you have probably figured out already, my name is Alyssa and I am a photographer. I live in the Northern Virginia area with my husband, our cocker spaniel, and white persian cat. In 2012 we moved from Hawaii back to the NoVA area to be closer to family. Lucky for me I have a wonderful client base to come back to as well
I didn’t really grow up with a plan to get into this line of work, it just kind of found me and I’m thankful that it did. I have owned and operated Alyssa Renee Photography for 5 years and grow more passionate with every day.
In that time I’ve had the opportunity to capture weddings and special events for families all across the United States and Mexico. While I really strive to perfect my techniques and establish my own brand, I truly believe in providing clients with a custom photo experience that fits them and their own personalities.
I specialize in both studio and natural light photography, I want my clients to know that they are investing in a product they will cherish for years to come.
