    The choice to have our wedding at Oatlands was an easy one - it was in the perfect location (easy to get to, close to Dulles, away from the bustle of DC), the gardens are stunning, and we got to hang out with the amazing Moriah Lemming, Oatland's event coordinator. We had a long engagement and our venue was one of the first things we booked, leaving ample time for us to come up with tons of questions, take multiple visits to the property, yet leave many important decisions until essentially the last minute. Moriah was with us every step of the way, ensuring that our big day went off without a hitch, and despite a very rainy morning and afternoon, it absolutely did. We had a myriad of exceptional vendors on the day of, but having Moriah there brought me a sense of peace I can't describe. She is calm, professional, and knows all the ins and outs of the property. She bustled my dress, carted our bridal party around the property (along with her amazing asst, Emmeline), and helped everyone navigate the property. I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about her.

    For being a historic estate, you have a lot of freedom at Oatlands. Candles are allowed in their tent as long as they are enclosed in glass (a huge no at other venues), they have a long list of preferred caterers to choose from, they are flexible working with all vendors, golf carts are available for elderly guests, transportation was allowed to pull up basically straight at our ceremony site so our guests did not have to walk, etc. I could honestly go on and on but seriously just have your wedding there...

    Awesome wedding venue. The gardens are spacious and there are multiple areas where you can have your ceremony, either in the garden or around the house. We had our ceremony in the magnolia garden which was beautiful and easily accommodated our 215+ guests. Unlimited photo spots - a photographer's dream.

    The pictures speak for themselves and everyone everyone else has said is true, so we just want to highlight the work of Moriah Lemming, the events manager at Oatlands. Friendly, easy to reach, professional, knowledgeable, organized, the star behind the scenes. She essentially served as a second day-of coordinator for us. She helped everything run smoothly and was present for all of our vendor walkthroughs with a smile. She created floor plans for us and provided good instruction on how to use the space effectively. It rained on the day of our wedding (more on that later) and she was outside, soaking wet, with a smile on her face. She really went above and beyond for us.

    Of note the rain plan for this venue is for everything to be under the reception tent. Luckily our ceremony made it with less than 5 minutes to spare before it started pouring, but cocktail hour was moved to the tent which wasn’t a problem. The only thing I would say is that especially in the humid summer months, the tent can get very hot and humid (especially if your group dances like ours did). We rented some pole fans and provided fans as favors which worked out well, and it was better once the walls were opened up, but just be aware of this. More of a “Virginia weather” problem rather than an “Oatlands problem” though.

    We also had our rehearsal dinner here in the air-conditioned carriage house which was great. Received a nice discount and all we needed to do was bring food, drinks, and utensils - linens, tables, chairs were provided. And the gardens were nice to walk around for our out-of-town guests and SOs of bridal party while we were at the rehearsal.
