Historic Bel Air is an exquisite 25-acre colonial plantation of rolling fields, spacious gardens, wooded areas and manor house available for receptions, photos and ceremonies. It is conveniently located in Woodbridge, Virginia, a 30-minute drive south of Washington, DC. Bel Air was built in 1740 by Capt. Charles Ewell and Sarah Ball, first cousin of George Washington's mother, Mary Ball. The Washington's spent their honeymoon night here on April 5, 1759: Mason Locke Weems, who wrote the cherry tree story, married Ewell's daughter at Bel Air in 1795 and is buried here. For lovers of history and beauty, Bel Air is yours. The gardens and gazebo are beautiful for photos. We are in the beginning process of building an elegant facility opening in 2020. Until then, a tent must be rented.
