About Antrim 1844 Hotel

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.

    My husband and I visited over 20 venues and researched even more. Besides being the most romantic and beautiful establishment, it was the greatest value in the area. I did not have a wedding planner, but I did not need one with Antrim 1844. Your assigned coordinator ensures they have all the necessary information. Katie, our coordinator, made recommendations throughout the process and communication with her was excellent. Our decorations were set-up and packed up according to my instructions. It was done beautifully. Our wedding was on a Friday and we booked every room at the Antrim (40 total); the whole bridal party and some family stayed Thursday as well for the rehearsal. Katie was there to help and refine every detail. I stayed in the Boucher Suite Thurs-Sat, which had ample room for my bridal party to get ready in. We had breakfast and lunch delivered to the room—all delicious! The groom/groomsmen got ready in the Carriage house, which has a large common room to hang out in. On my wedding day, a staff member checked on me every hour, ensuring I had everything I needed and really, everything I wanted. For pictures, you have your choice of stunning areas all over property. Every single room, every garden is GORGEOUS. It rained during our reception and I was extremely thankful to be in the air-conditioned ballroom. There is also a covered outdoor space where guests went for fresh air. The food was delicious. Instead of picking from a predefined list, Chef Andrew works with each couple to capture their vision. Multiple guests and our photographer commented how the steak was the best they ever had. During the reception the staff was very attentive to my husband and myself. We felt like royalty. After the night, cake, strawberries, and champagne were waiting in our room. Our guests raved it was the most beautiful wedding they have ever been to. There is much more I am leaving out for space, but Antrim 1844 was the perfect choice.
