Romantic setting for our wedding
Oatlands Historic house and garden is absolutely beautiful, the garden is perfect for romantic wedding pictures. Our wedding was at the barn, we loved the setting, there are so many possibilities to decorate. The staff was very helpful and professional. It was absolutely our dream wedding. Thank you.Sent on 01/10/2021

Moriah was amazing and the venue was beautiful
The venue absolutely beautiful and there were so many potential sites we could have used for our ceremony spot, first look location, wedding portraits and cocktail hour. We chose the boxwood terrace for the ceremony and the tiered gardens for cocktail hour and it made for amazing pictures. Our guests continue to tell us how beautiful the venue was. On top of that, the venue coordinator, Moriah Lemming, was so insanely organized, flexible and had great attention to detail. I was hesitant about not using an outside coordinator but she completely manned our wedding all on her own. She herded guests from spot to spot, lined up and helped time our wedding party walks, fluffed my dress before I walked down the aisle, was always on top of my slew of emailed questions and requests, and at several times during the night, I caught her holding hands with and walking around with our flower girl. She is truly amazing at her job and having her help with our wedding made our experience at Oatlands so memorable. I would recommend this venue and her 1000 over.Sent on 10/15/2018

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.Sent on 09/16/2018
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...
Oatlands Historic House & Garden's reply:Ali, we are so glad that we were able to be a part of you and Peter's big day. You guys were an amazing couple to work alongside. We are overjoyed that you had a great experience and loved us! We hope that you and Peter enjoy a lifetime of happiness and love.
Always love photographing at Oatlands! They have a great team of event professionals that truly care about the weddings they are helping put together. Plus, the grounds are just stunning. It's like being transported back in time to a fairy tale!
What a beautiful and Romantic location for a Wedding!
