A Wonderful Wedding Experience

"Fantastic wedding".! "Wonderful buffet dinner"! "An amazing cocktail hour"! These were just some of the accolades we got for hosting our daughter's wedding at the Marriott at Fair Oaks. From the beginning planning stages to the rehearsal evening and the wedding itself; dealing with our event coordinator, Lucy Warner, was a totally professional experience. It was a smoothly ran event! I had told my daughter to expect hiccups somewhere along the way, but there were none! Ms. Warner orchestrated the wedding flawlessly! In the months leading up to our event, she was always easy to reach out to and our questions were answered promptly. The entire Marriott staff were a delight to work with. The bartender and servers who worked that evening were professional, polite and were always there willing to help in anyway we needed!

The food was absolutely delicious! We met our event coordinator and the chef a few months prior to our wedding for a delightful evening of taste testing. The chef explained every dish we were tasting in great detail. It was hard to eliminate one from each category! Our taste testing evening was topped off with a plate of mouth watering cookies for dessert. It took me only a second to decide to order several dozen of these wonderful in-house baked cookies and brownies for our wedding. What a hit they were!! Those cookies/brownies flew off the plate!

A week after the wedding and I'm still hearing so many rave reviews that this was the best wedding ever. Honestly, I owe this wonderful evening for our daughter and new son-in-law to Lucy Warner and her team at Marriott! Thank you all so much! Ms. Warner and her staff at Marriott, truly exceeded our expectations! I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a reasonably priced venue in Northern VA to please check out the Marriott at Fair Oaks! You will not be disappointed!

Wonderful!

I held my maduram veppu (similar to Sangeet) Event At Fairfax Marriott on 10/21 and had all our guests (300+) stay here for the weekend. I originally was going to do a cheaper venue for this event, but after logistics came into play, I bit the bullet and spent more money to have it in the ballroom at Fairfax. This was the BEST decision I made - i was BLOWN away by how amazing the event went - everyone raved about the hotel, the bar situation, the ballroom, the decor, the service. It was so nice that our guests after a long drive from NJ/NY to Fairfax, could conveniently attend the event on the main floor. Lucy, the catering manager, was wonderful to work with! WIth our amount of guests, Lucy gave us a complimentary hospitality room for the whole weekend where we could accommodate lunch/breakfasts for our families, have dance practices, get hair &makeup done, etc.

We worked with Seth to accommodate our wedding block, and my gosh I don’t know how Seth dealt with me. I must have sent him at least 300+ emails in the past year, and every time, he responded quickly with clear responses. Everything with the hotel went without a hitch, I highly highly recommend using them for our event!
