A friend recommended the Hendry House to us as a wedding venue. It's truly a hidden gem in Arlington. The house is beautiful and well maintained. We wanted to do an outdoor ceremony and the weather was perfect. For our reception, we had plenty of indoor and outdoor seating and the children in attendance took full advantage of the grassy lawn. Sharon Casey made very practical suggestions throughout the planning process. We wanted to have a ceremony and reception that made guests feel "at home" and the Hendry House was the perfect location to do so.

We had a fabulous wedding at the Hendry House just last Saturday. Sharon Casey was responsive and easy to work with from the start. Many guests told us what a beautiful location it was.
While it was hot and humid, fans in the tent helped and the house was air conditioned so folks could take breaks. The ceremony area with the wisteria arch was lovely, and most of it was shaded after 4 when ours started. The bridal suite was very spacious and handy for us to get ready. Easy rear load-in access to the catering kitchen made it a breeze for the caterers to set up. We saved a ton of money in that they allowed us to bring in our own alcohol as long as a licensed caterer served it.
Plenty of parking, lovely grounds...ample space for the ceremony, tent, and a lawn for games. We had a buffet and the cake set up in the dining room, escort cards & gift table in the front room, cocktail tables, slideshow, and photo booth in the large room. There is some airplane noise but not bad at all. Many lovely spots for photos on the landscaped grounds.
And so affordable for a Saturday night in the summer in the DC area! They don't seem to advertise at all--I'm lucky a friend told me about it. We couldn't believe there was no wedding there the previous beautiful Saturday when we stopped by. Couldn't be happier!

We had a small wedding (40 people) here in August 2015. Sharon was great to work with and extremely responsive. We did an initial tour with her and then did another walk through with the caterer once we got closer to the date. We held the wedding outside on the patio and then held the reception inside. The venue is gorgeous and our photos looked fabulous.
The only downside was that we had our wedding around 5:15 on a Saturday afternoon and it seemed every plane in the area flew directly over the Hendry House. I never noticed this before when visiting the site, so might be a good idea to check this out when you're thinking about times.
I would also test out the sound equipment during a walk through. We had some trouble figuring out how to use it.
