Susan Winkeler officiates a wedding with “family vows” at the Fuller House Inn.

I’m Susan Winkeler, a court-appointed wedding officiant serving Winchester, VA and the entire Shenandoah Valley.  I also own and  operate the Fuller House Inn, a small wedding venue located in Old Town Winchester, just three blocks from the courthouse.  Whether you want a quick elopement, traditional or non-traditional wedding or vow renewal ceremony, I’m here to help.

The Fuller House Inn’s garden is a private, romantic place to get married or elope.

Naturally, I would hope you would want to get married at the Fuller House Inn.  If you’re looking for an elegant historic house, beautiful wedding chapel or romantic garden setting for your small wedding, the Fuller House Inn is an excellent, affordable choice.  Unlike other wedding venues in the Shenandoah Valley, I offer several money-saving options: hourly rates, inexpensive officiant fees and free use of chairs, tables and decorative pedestals.  And, because Winchester, VA is a fast and easy place to elope, I also have two elopement packages:

  1. Elopement Ceremony Special — $85.00, simple civil vows or vows of your choice, up to 30 minutes on site at the Fuller House Inn, each additional person is $5.00/person of any age.
  2. Cottage Elopement Package — $250.00, simple civil vows or vows of your choice, overnight stay in the Fuller House Inn’s Cottage, couple only.  State and local lodging taxes apply.
