    Amazing Customer Service / So Easy to Reschedule!

    Review 1 of 2: Pre-Wedding. Let me start by saying that their customer service is amazing! We worked with Tatum and she’s totally awesome, super professional, nice, has answers to absolutely everything... I really can’t say enough about working with her! We really wanted our wedding here so we decided to bite the bullet and shell out the $$$ (cause I’ll be honest, this place is NOT cheap!) This made us super nervous when COVID happened and it was clear we would have to reschedule our wedding. Ugh! what about fees?... would we get the same rate?... should we just cancel and see how things go?... WELL LET ME TELL YOU THEY WERE AWESOME! They are extremely flexible! There was no change of date fee, they made their cancellation policies more flexible, and they even kept our contract price the same! No extra fees of any kind, no revisiting of price due to inflation or change of day or time or anything (even though we shifted it out almost a whole year so normally the prices would have increased naturally due to inflation... but there was none of that!) It was REALLY AMAZING! So while we are still in the midst of being nervous at the idea of having a big wedding and everything that it will mean given the current state of the country, we do NOT regret reserving Sequoia, not for one second. We were met with “no problem” and “we can work with you on that”... and them honoring the contract and certain agreements we had despite the changes really solidified their credibility in our book and made us feel comfortable and safe at the choice we made of reserving The Sequoia. They really make you feel like they care about your big day in every way... kind of like you are VIP for them (at least until your wedding. Hahahaha). I will write another review once the wedding happens to give feedback on their performance and final thoughts but for now: BRAVO in every way!

    Dream Venue and Service During COVID (& Before!)

    There are a million venues in DC--and we looked at a lot of them!--but the second we toured Sequoia I knew it was perfect. We had the BEST experience with the events team, led by Tatum, planning our wedding. They went above-and-beyond for us in so many ways, including giving us a free dinner when my mom was in town so she could try all the food and wine after not being able to make the tasting. I joked that wedding planning was more fun than I expected and "too easy"... and then COVID happened. I heard horror stories about venues being difficult and I was nervous about the process when we decided to postpone our wedding. But, Sequoia could not have been more wonderful. Before we made our decision, they proactively communicated how things were going (and they kept their events staff employed so they were always available to communicate with!) and they let us reserve a free "backup" date should we need it. They also sent us the most amazing treats to lift our spirits during a difficult and stressful time! Once we decided to postpone, they immediately replied to my email and made us feel so at-ease. They locked in our new date (no extra charges, stipulations, or anything different than our original plan besides the year) and it could not have been easier. I was glad we chose Sequoia before COVID, but going through this experience of uncertainty and postponement with them made me even more sure it is the perfect place for us. Thanks to their easy communication, kindness, and flexibility I know our new wedding date at Sequoia will be better than ever.
