About Antrim 1844 Hotel

Exclusive & Unforgettable

The Antrim 1844 Hotel is a historic mansion serving as a hotel and location for couples’ weddings in the greater Washington, D.C. area. At this luxuriously elegant hotel, couples will find overflowing gardens of roses and other fragrant flora, a classic brick structure to serve as the setting and other hidden gems such as flowing fountains.

Facilities and Capacity
As many as 400 wedding guests can join couples at the Antrim 1844 Hotel. This hotel, sitting on a gorgeous 24 acres of land, offers indoor and outdoor locations for wedding events. The Formal Gardens make an idyllic ceremony location, found within feet of the Manor House and Glass-Enclosed Pavilion. These gardens surround couples and guests with colorful roses of many varieties. In addition to the aforementioned structures in the background of the ceremony, couples will also spot bronze fountains as they exchange vows. The Secret Garden is a more hidden and exclusive ceremony location for couples seeking an intimate occasion. Here, they can marry under the graceful branches of an ancient elm tree. In the Glass-Enclosed Pavilion, couples needn’t worry about the weather putting a damper on their big day. True to its name, this pavilion has plenty of windows so that couples and guests can still view the gardens during the ceremony. This venue also serves as an ideal location for a couple’s reception, following an outdoor or off-site ceremony. Another indoor reception option is the McCaleb, the venue’s premiere smokehouse restaurant. This old-world venue space has direct access to the formal gardens. For larger parties, couples can celebrate their reception in a tent over the Croquet Lawn.

Antrim 1844 was the perfect venue for my daughter's wedding. The engagement was 18 months and we talked with three different wedding coordinators. All did a great job at the stage of the planning process they were involved in. Abbey was fabulous in her organization and communication and keeping things moving since we had to make the call to move inside for the ceremony due to iffy thunderstorms. The staff was running two by two with umbrellas escorting guests back to the mansion after the ceremony. The food was stellar and the staff was at our beck and call. Many guests had staff running them back and forth between their rooms on the golfcart. We could pick up our decor which had been used and stored the next day. Still wondering about 15-30 sparklers which didn't get used. Would definitely recommend Antrim 1844 for an event venue. (Mother of Bride)

Our wedding was at Antrim 1844 and we would highly recommend them! We booked our April 2018 wedding in December 2016 (16 months in advance). Some of the best things about Antrim were:
• The property/gardens! The beautiful property and gardens is why we fell in love with Antrim after our first visit and is something that every single one of our wedding guests mentioned during our big day (and continue to tell us months later!). The romantic garden vibe made our wedding day feel absolutely magical.
• The service! Impeccable. From the moment you walk in until the moment you leave, the staff were so friendly/helpful/professional. We felt like royalty!
• The food! We enjoyed working with Chef Andrew Fontaine to create our own unique menu that our guests loved. Everyone has been to weddings with less than stellar food (green beans that taste as though they had been frozen, etc) but at Antrim - everything was delicious.
• Our coordinator! Katie was an absolute joy to work with! Before our wedding day I probably emailed her hundreds of times and she graciously responded quickly and without ever making me feel as though I asked too many questions! I am extremely detail-oriented and before meeting Katie I was a bit worried about having things fall through the cracks or having things set up differently than I had envisioned. But our day went off perfectly and there wasn’t one thing that went wrong. Katie and her team set up/took down and kept everything on time!
• Everything can be on-site! We had our ceremony in the Formal Garden, cocktail hour in the Mansion, and our reception in the Glass Pavilion. We also had about 25 of the 40 hotel rooms for our guests.

Antrim gives you 5.5 hours (including the ceremony) which is pretty standard as far as weddings go but if I could do it again, I’d add an extra hour!
