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.

The Formal Gardens make an idyllic ceremony location, found within feet of the Manor House and Glass-Enclosed Pavilion.

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.

    So. Beautiful.

    Antrim 1844 is beautiful down to the tiniest detail. Their staff is kind and experienced, and they made everything look even better than we imagined it would. Don't be afraid if the pavilion seems a bit bare the first time you visit; it dresses up easily. For photos, they have an assortment of houses and grounds that provide plenty of great shots. Katie was patient with our complete newbieness, and she steered everything leading up to and during the wedding with unflinching poise. I don't really have a way to explain how well everything went off--it was just an amazing day, and we didn't have to worry about a thing once it started.
    Also, make sure to ask about using decorations from old weddings! They hold on to decorations couples don't want to keep, and they're happy to use them free of charge--this was great for the little touches, like extra greenery, candle holders, and other assorted items. Their own table settings and white cloths are also great, which was a great way to save some money.
    Besides the ceremony and reception, the bridal suite and the night's stay that comes with the package is incredible, and Antrim's hospitality was wonderful.
    Final note: we had our wedding on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, and they were super accommodating and flexible. They even offered to let us move the ceremony outside if the weather cooperated, which we decided against but appreciated having as an option. Don't be afraid to ask for something a little out of the box!

    Magical Wedding Venue

    The Antrim 1844 is such a magical place. My parents got married at the Antrim in the Mansion in 1995, so it was already special to our family. In 2016, my now husband and I met for the first time at the Antrim at the Carrollton Hounds Hunt Ball. In 2017, we got engaged at the New Years Eve Gala in the formal gardens at midnight. So, when it came time to looking for a wedding venue, we knew that the Antrim was the perfect place.

    Everyone at the Antrim made our wedding day nothing short of perfect. My wedding party and I got our hair and makeup done in the Formal Dining Room before going to the bridal suite to get ready. My husband, his best man, and friends stayed in the pub before going to their suite to get ready as well. We had our first look in the snow covered formal gardens and it was perfect. Our ceremony was in the Garden Room in the Pavilion, which was set up beautifully and our guests were very comfortable.

    We had our cocktail hour in the Mansion, but before joining our guests, the Antrim staff set up food and beverages for the wedding party and our family to catch our breath and eat some food before mingling with our guests. This was such a wonderful time to stop and take everything in. The hors d'oeuvres were just fantastic and the atmosphere of the Mansion was wonderful.

    Our wedding reception was just perfect as well. The food was marvelous, the staff were all so accommodating, and we had everything we needed. My husband and I had several of our hors d'ouevres stationed at the table waiting for us at our sweetheart table along with fruit and drinks. After the meal was finished, we just danced the night away until going to the Pub for the after party. My wedding day was just an absolute dream and the Antrim did everything they could to make it perfect.
