We loved our venue, and so did all our guests. We spent virtually $0 on decor since it's beautiful all on its own. We were lucky to get a Friday the 13th discount, have the Walk of Lights available to our guests, and great service from the venue staff. I think choosing this venue took a lot of extra to-do's off our wedding planning--they covered so much for us!
We had our wedding at Meadowlark recently and couldn't have been happier. The venue is gorgeous and unique - I knew immediately upon visiting Meadowlark that I wanted to have my wedding there. The staff at Meadowlark and their in-house caterer, Great Blue Heron, were very responsive and flexible. They made the entire process easy. I was particularly pleased that the venue price included quite a bit compared to some other venues we looked at. Meadowlark also allowed us to have a rehearsal the day before and drop several things off, which was very helpful. Our guests raved about Meadowlark and the food. I would highly recommend Meadowlark as a wedding venue!
We have absolutely nothing but good things to say about The Atrium. From the second we walked in for a tour they were there to help us make our vision come to life. Our word of caution is to reserve your day as soon as possible because weekends during peak season can book up fast! We booked our Saturday in September about 15 months in advance and some of the other Saturdays that month were already taken. As with most venues prices are higher during peak season and on prime days like Saturday. The day of the wedding the staff helped everything get done exactly as we had discussed and was completely understanding to all and any last minute changes. It was also perfectly located in the botanical gardens which made for gorgeous photos and lovely grounds for the guests to enjoy. We had the most memorable, lovely time at this wonderful venue!
We could not have asked for a more perfect venue for our wedding! The staff at the Atrium were so friendly and everyone was so easy to work with! The tasting was AMAZING! They brought out so much food we had to ask for containers to go, and all of it was excellent! There was not a single thing that we did not like, which made the menu hard to choose. The chef came out and spoke with us and made sure we knew that they could pretty much accommodate anything, just let them know. We were able to drop off all of our decorations the day before the wedding and they set up everything the way we wanted to day of. They helped with the set up to make sure everything flowed just right. The day of event staff was so hands on and very helpful! The chef even came out to make sure we liked the food in the holding room and asked if he could bring us more! The banquet supervisor helped with my train, helped get us dinner, and just made sure everything was flowing smoothly! We highly recommend the Atrium to anyone, you won't be disappointed with the views, service or food!
We could not have been happier with everyone at Meadowlark! The attention to detail, responsiveness to questions, helpful suggestions - every interaction was great! The venue itself is beautiful and unique. Parking is ample and easy. Our guests loved it and so did we. We recommend it highly!!!
My husband and I were very pleased by the location and service here at the Atrium. We had a December wedding, and it was beautifully decorated.
Meadowlark gave us the wedding of our dreams. We are so overwhelmed with gratitude for staff. Bryan went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and full. :) The venue was elegant, the staff was generous, and my guests were stunned with the beautiful holiday lights that the gardens had to offer. Serena, Christian, Bryan, Kristin, and Wayne thank you for your kindness and generosity.
We cannot rave highly enough about The Atrium. It was the perfect reception venue from the initial walk through to the day of. The beauty speaks for itself, especially during the holiday season, as it has extra decorations up as well as the winter walk of lights to serve as an amazing backdrop and finale walk through for guests. But I think the best part of the Atrium is that it is a one stop shop. We had no need for a wedding planner. Wayne and Cerrena walk you through the whole floor plan and all of the logistics to arrange things exactly how you want and your catering captain helps with your event schedule the day of. We had several DIY-type decorations for the check in table, centerpieces, and misc. signs which were all laid out perfectly according to the directions we gave the Atrium. We used their in house catering- Great Blue Heron, which was excellent. We will right a separate review for that. 100% recommend the Atrium to anyone.
I got married here in November and had a great experience with the staff and site. We reserved a sunday at the beginning of the holiday light display season and coordinated our decorations to blend with the site's lights and decorations. It was so easy to work with Wayne - he really understood the space and how to arrange the tables for a group of our size. He calmed me down when I became a ball of stress - a big part of how he did that was he always called me back within a couple of hours of my voicemail. A couple of days before the wedding, he realized that the summer flowers were still planted in the Atrium and were not going to match the winter theme of the wedding so he ran around town to find appropriate flowers and the Atrium horticulturalist spent a night replanting. I was shocked that anyone would go to that degree to help make a reception. I could easily have been the only one who noticed that detail but Wayne and his crew truly went above and beyond to make everything as perfect as possible. The reception was gorgeous! All Wayne's recommendations proved to be fantastic and everything came together better than I imagined. I highly recommend this site, this staff (and the in-house caterers, Great Blue Heron, who I reviewed separately).
I had my wedding on November 15th and couldn't have been more pleased with everything the Atrium had to offer! I had no idea the venue even existed until the wedding process. We had our wedding during the first weekend of the light show which made the venue even more gorgeous then it already was! The indoor stream and greenery made the venue really unique to a lot of places around the area. Everyone we corresponded with there were extremely professional and were very responsive to anything we needed! The catering company that the Atrium uses (Blue Heron) was also superb and we have had multiple people tell us that was the best wedding food they have had. Overall, the place is FANTASTIC and creates the most beautiful backdrop for a wedding. I was overwhelmed at how great everything turned out there and would recommend this venue to anyone getting married during any season!!
We had a beautiful ceremony and reception at the Atrium on Oct. 17. For our reception, we hired the Atrium's in-house catering arm, Great Blue Heron. Our wedding guests raved about the beauty of the venue, the bounty of delicious food, and the professional and friendly staff who went out of their way to make all feel welcome.
During the many months leading up to the wedding, we spent a lot of time working with the front office staff (Wayne, Renee, and Cerrena) as well as the catering staff (Chef Bryan, Liz, Lauren, Kristen, and catering captain Chris). We always were so impressed by their friendliness, down-to-earth approach, responsiveness, and flexibility. They were very respectful of our requests regarding food, headcount, and budget. We never felt pushed into a decision, and it felt very collaborative.
The Atrium and GBH always will hold a special place in our hearts; because of them, we and our guests had a wonderful time at our wedding. Highly recommend.
Meadowlark wasn't my first choice for a wedding venue, but I'm so glad we had our ceremony and reception there. The location is beautiful: there are trees and a little river inside! We got so many comments from guests on how pretty it was inside the Atrium and also what a nice backdrop the grounds made for the ceremony. The staff was a pleasure to work with: very responsive and so accommodating. The Atrium staff as well as Blue Heron catering made our wedding day flow seemingly effortlessly.
After researching wedding venues in MD, PA, CA and NY, a friend suggested we visit Meadowlark Botanical Gardens near Tysons Corner, where he recently had hosted his daughter's wedding.So glad we did. It was a gorgeous, magical day for our son and daughter in law's wedding thanks to the professionalism of the Meadowlark Atrium and GBH Caterimg Staff! Everything went smoothly thanks to the attentiveness and flexibility provided by Cerrena and Kristin. We received exceptional service that began with the magnificent food tasting event with Chef Bryan. We had exquisite appetizers during cocktail hour and a mouthwatering buffet (included beef tenderloin) and premium full open bar. Bryan agreed to stuff canollis that we brought. He could not have been more wonderful to work with. Everything was absolutely DELICIOUS! The evening was flawless thanks to the outstanding service and hospitality provided by Christian (Captain) snd his wonderful team (April was the only name I caught). All the guests were impressed with the warm hospitality and the natural beauty of the venue. BTW- we didn't have an official wedding planner working with the venue. These folks have got it down to a science and are very accommodating. It truly was a night to remember and the value just cannot be beat!!!
Wayne and everyone with Great Blue Heron were amazing. They accommodated every little request I asked. The staff was beyond fantastic the day off. I would highly recommend them to any couple looking for a gorgeous place to get married and fabulous and easy going staff with mouth watering food.
Awesome!!!! I highly reccomend!!! The staff above and beyond :)
Most beautiful location and great catering for our May wedding!
