    A Perfect Night

    We knew Sequoia was the spot for us the second we walked in, the space is absolutely gorgeous. Lila was our point of contact and she was an absolute pleasure to work with, her team was very responsive and helped make our day very special. Ruben and Lila managed multiple vendors and put on a seamless ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, along with a team of high quality servers and bartenders! All our guests were blown away with the quality of the food and drinks. If you are looking for a truly beautiful venue on the Georgetown waterfront where everything is taken care of by an exceptional group of people, please look no further than Sequoia! Additionally, the complimentary suite at the Watergate was stunning. They were also able to seamlessly manage a wide range of guests with allergies and dietary preferences.

    Anticipated Every Need

    Tatum, Ruben, and the whole Seqouia staff ensured that we had the wedding of our dreams! They went above and beyond, accommodating numerous changes, running our rehearsal, rapidly answering dozens of emails, and on our wedding day they made sure that I (bride) never had an empty glass of wine! The whole event went seemlessly and our guests wanted for nothing. Seqouia anticipated problems before they could affect anyone, like light in their eyes during the ceremony. There was never a line at the bar, though there was competition to snag glasses of one of our 2 signature drinks (a Seqouia creation) because it was so popular!!!

    Tatum helped us throw the perfect wedding

    We had the best wedding we could imagine at Sequoia. The ceremony was beautiful with the natural light and our guests loved the balcony and waterfront views. We barely did any decorating because it was so beautiful. We worked with Tatum who was a god-send. She was so patient with us during the entire process and despite my many anxieties, never made me feel like I was being too much. We could tell her team truly wanted us to have a great night. We also loved our honeymoon suite at the Watergate and took amazing pictures in their lawn and on their rooftop. Our wedding was the best night of our lives and it was all made possible by Tatum and the team at Sequoia.
