There aren't enough words to express our gratitude to Anna Cote and the staff at The Woodlands for not only an amazing wedding, but impeccable service for the year-plus we spent planning the big day. The Woodlands is already a great value for all that's included, but Anna really puts it over the top. Patient, responsive, eminently helpful, Anna answered every question posed by the two of us, our parents, our coordinator and more. Anna was there the day of the wedding to ensure a few last-minute concerns were handled, and afterward her courteous staff took excellent care of our guests during the ceremony and reception. We are so glad we chose The Woodlands and Anna, and we would highly recommend them to anyone!
We just got married at The Woodlands, and it was absolutely perfect. The venue is gorgeous and the staff are very helpful. We were able to hold the entire event at the same site, including an indoor ceremony (very important for a July wedding in Virginia). Our entire out-of-town family stayed in the cottages, which gave them much more space than a hotel, at a much lower price. In addition, their prices are the best in the area.
LOVELY venue. Great for indoor and outdoor activities. The main reception space is very open, yet warm feeling. The staff did a great job managing the set up and any needs during our event. I'm so glad we booked this venue!
Anna Cota was very responsive and always available to answer any questions that we had. It is a beautiful venue and worth every penny.
We got married at the Woodlands in May, and I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. The venue itself is gorgeous, especially if you're blessed with a nice weather. Anna Cote was super helpful and the whole staff was extremely accommodating. I wanted to hug one of the women, Bianca maybe?, who helped me bustle my gown when my sister and I had no idea what to do. She was ready with extra pins. They really anticipated all of our needs.
We chose The Woodlands at Algonkian for our October 11, 2014 wedding based on the price point and our tour of the site--the outdoor ceremony area is lovely, but they also have a backup plan in place for inclement weather, which was important to us. We ended up needing to use the reception space for our ceremony due to rain, and the ceremony was beautiful. Anna and her team were a pleasure to work with, and Anna was always very quick to respond to our emails. The option to rent onsite cottages (they are not guaranteed to be available for the wedding party, but we chose to rent those that were available) was also great. We highly recommend this venue site!
Anne is very helpful, calm, personable, and accommodating. Email seems to be the best form of communication and she responds very quickly and professionally to your emails. She's very knowledgeable and helpful in helping you or providing suggestions to make the planning process as easy and stress free as possible all the way up to the last day before the wedding.
Wow this place is beautiful! I everything went smoothly and was perfect. In the weeks leading up to the ceremony, my emails and calls were always met with a day-of response. Even on the day when I walked in and changed a few details, they were right on it. My day of coordinator was professional and took control after our pictures went over time. She completely changed the schedule to make it fit and everything ran perfectly smoothly! Do not be afraid to use the in house caterer either. All of the food was delicious and we got so many complements!
The Woodlands was the perfect venue for my daughter's wedding. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating.
(This was only our Reception venue - we had our ceremony elsewhere.)
Our experience at Algonkian was fantastic. Anna Cote took great care of us from the start, and there were numerous small details that they took care of for us with no extra charge, such as providing table card holders.
The service was professional and thorough, and I highly recommend it to anyone considering this venue.
The only issue we experienced was not really their fault, which was that the main room is a little crowded with 24 tables! (We had a guest list just under 200) They told us this ahead of time, so we were prepared for that and it didn't detract a lot from the experience.
Anna was a pleasure to work with. She made the planning very easy as was there to help out the morning and day off which was so great. This is a beautiful venue. I am from Colorado and wanted a mountain feel, or as much as I could get in the DC area. This was it!
The venue was perfect for my daughter's wedding. Anna was very helpful and supportive. We got the whole day at the venue which made easy for setting up and taking pictures.
I'm so glad I found this venue. It was beautiful already and had so much potential for a bride to make it her own. Anna and Serena were great to work with and did everything to accommodate us. They even gave us a place to store all our things the night before which was SO helpful as it gets so busy during wedding weekend! My husband and I love this place and definitely recommend it!
The only suggestion I would make is that they get new chairs for the outdoor ceremony, the ones they had were okay but kind of outdated and old.
The Woodlands helped make our wedding day perfect! We highly recommend it to other couples looking for a special place to get married. The park was beautiful and our guests loved staying at the nearby cottages.
My daughter's wedding reception was held at The Woodlands at Algonkian on November 17th and I highly recommend this facility for any special occasion. The coordinator, Anna Cote, was extremely friendly, helpful and professional. From start to finish, she made sure the facility was ready for the big day and everything ran so smoothly - not an easy task with 140 guests. We heard so many compliments from our guests about our choice of venue. The stonework was very impressive and we especially loved the mirrored glass by the dance floor. Even as we look at wedding photos, you can see so much more because of the reflections in the mirrors. Our DJ even said the acoustics were perfect for the music. We looked at several other venues before choosing The Woodlands and we absolutely made the right decision!
So glad my mom found this place! I'll admit that I was skeptical at first (the only part of the park I had seen was the Volcano Island Waterpark) but as soon as I saw it I was blown away. It's tucked away in the park just off the golf course on a beautifully wooded lot close to the Potomac river. The inside is newly renovated and absolutely beautiful! Stone floors in the entrance, big stone fire place in the banquet room, a beautiful dance floor with windows that turn to mirrors at night time (which is great for photos) and the staff is wonderful! Anna helped answer our many questions and was incredibly responsive, accommodating, and friendly. I would highly recommend this venue! The price is reasonable and worth every penny!
