Our wedding at McLean Gardens Ballroom was delightful in every way. Phillippe was phenomenal to work with and he charmed my mom, my husband, several friends associated with the event and definitely me. The space is accessible and elegant. We used the lovely candelabras, saved big money on flowers in the space and made a wonderful statement. The glistening ballroom floor invites dancing and fun. The food was absolutely spectacular. Several months after the wedding folks are still talking about our stellar menu. We tasted every item we served and were able to move forward with confidence. The value for the money was also unbeatable. If we were doing our wedding all over again, we would run to have our reception there with Phillippe!Sent on 09/08/2015

We discovered McLean Gardens Ballroom in a random Google search, looking for venues for our wedding day. We became interested in the Ballroom first based on price and availability, but the more time we spent planning, talking with the staff, and preparing for our wedding day, the more we realized just how perfect our reception venue was for us. They were incredibly professional, thoughtful, gracious, and accommodating to our every need. They worked with us on a menu that was sensitive to various food allergies and sensitivities among the guests; they cared for our elderly grandmother with grace and gentleness; they were efficient in set-up and clean-up; and were willing to bend over backwards, if necessary, to give us what we wanted, to help us stay at/under our budget, and still provide an elegant atmosphere and experience. I would highly recommend them to anyone marrying in the DC area.Sent on 08/20/2013

Mr. Demol was fabulous, and the Ballroom was a vision. It truly is a hidden gem. The room has such character and timesless beauty, and our wedding felt like a fairytale. Washington Parties does a wonderful job catering and planning the event. The food was amazing (see review of Washington Parties dated 3/26/13).Sent on 03/26/2013
