    We would do it again!

    Everything at the Lorien was incredible. We chose the venue because hospitality was our priority; we wanted good food and excellent service. The Lorien surpassed every expectation that we had.

    My aunt was our florist and did the decorations, she has raved at not only how helpful staff was in setting out the decorations, but how creative! Kat and her staff came up with creative solutions to unforeseen problems. They responded with professionalism at every turn, making what easily could have been a stressful day smooth and fun.

    Our families and friends enjoyed chatting with the bartender and a number of the staff working the event; and felt that their enthusiasm and personalities added to the fun and atmosphere of joy of the evening. The venue was creative and perfect for allowing dancing and conversations, and mingling among guests.

    So many of our guests have complimented that this was the best wedding they have been to and we agree; if we did it over again, we would not change a thing.

    Absolutely wonderful!!!

    We are incredibly happy with how everything turned out for our wedding at the Lorien! We had our wedding at the Lorien Hotel on 5/25/19. In regards to planning and preparation, Amanda was absolutely amazing to work with! She was so helpful and responsive to all of our requests! During the event, the entire staff were professional, attentive to our guests and were so organized!! Big shout out to Kat, the catering manager, for making sure everything in terms of venue coordination on the day of our wedding went smoothly! Our wedding ceremony took place on the rooftop, overlooking Old Town with the Masonic Temple in the background—absolutely stunning! Dinner was in the Liberty room with dancing in the Independence room! Now on to the food—WOW! Our guests are STILL talking about how delicious all of the food was at our wedding! Everything from the appetizers during cocktail hour to the plated meals during dinner was perfect! There aren’t enough words on how incredible this venue is for any event! We are truly grateful to Amanda, Kat, and all of the Lorien staff for making our wedding an wonderful success and the best day of our lives!

    The Lorien is beautiful, their staff is wonderful, and the food was great!

    Our wedding at the Lorien was STELLAR. I loved working with Amanda, she was very responsive and flexible. The service we received from the front desk staff, catering staff, housekeeping, and valets throughout the weekend was impeccable. We appreciated the big and little things the staff did to make our wedding memorable.... like taking such good care of our parents when checked in to leaving a plate of cocktail hour apps on our sweetheart table since we were taking photos during cocktail hour. The space looked amazing... we had our ceremony in the courtyard, dinner in the Liberty ballroom, and dancing in the Freedom room. Our guests raved at how beautiful the space was (the courtyard with the fire pits!) and how tasty the food was. We truly appreciate their efforts to make our wedding day so spectacular.

    The Lorian in Alexandria is a combination of the best of an urban setting close to many people in Northern Virginia, and a cool, sophisticated environment that awes visitors. It is a perfect setting for a wedding, has a deck overlooking the city, and both outdoor and indoor spaces that keep a wedding party separate from the expected crowd at a good hotel, and enamored of the cool use of space. You and your guests will love this great and unexpected site for your wedding.

  • Stephen Gosling Photography Wedding Photographers

    A lovely little hotel with very wonderful weddings. The weddings I shot here are always relaxed and the couples are awesome. If you're having a smallish wedding in Old Town then check this place out. One of the good spots here in my home town!
