We had our wedding reception at Sequoia, and I cannot even express how phenomenal the experience was. I'll have to use categories to try:
Planning: We worked with Scott. He was the ultimate professional: quick responses, super flexible about everything (including some picky family members who wanted their own special meals), very conscious of our budget, very up front about what worked or didn't work for couples in the past. I cannot count the number of emails we exchanged over the course of planning. From the initial meeting to the tasting to every detail -- we were made to feel like VIPs.
The setting on the waterfront is breathtaking (our reception was at night, so we were overlooking twinkling, lighted trees, and ice skaters!), and the chandeliers and balcony really make Sequoia stand out from your run of the mill hotel banquet room. On the night of our reception, the staff at Sequoia really went above and beyond. Bride, groom, and our parents had a dedicated server who made sure we were never without a drink or a glass of water. Also, when my husband and I needed to hide out during cocktail hour, our server set up a candlelit table for two in a secret back room!
Service was flawless and everyone raved about the food (ESPECIALLY the potato croquettes as a starter! Don't miss them!). And the dance floor at Sequoia depends on where you set your tables, so it can be as huge or as intimate as you'd like.
Five hundred stars. Such a special, special night in a truly stunning setting with and awesome team.

Working with Sequoia, and Scott specifically, was a wonderful experience. As a planner I work with many venues, and Scott really made my job easier! Scott was easy to work with and always had great suggestions on how to use his space wisely. I look forward to working with Scott again!

Wedding Ceremony at Sequoia
My wedding planning experience and party was amazing at Sequoia. We worked with Tatum and have no words for how phenomenal she was to work with. She was just so honest, flexible and delivered everything she promised to the T. I would highly recommend Sequoia for any weddings or parties! I would specifically ask for Tatum to work with!
Sequoia provides a wonderful wedding venue and experience for Bride/Groom and their guests. It has flexible spaces, top-notch food and service, and is in one of the best areas of DC. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and work hard to ensure each couple has the best wedding. The food is terrific and the atmosphere is amazing. Highly recommend!
This is simply the most stunning location for the D.C. bride. If you are searching for the perfect place for a memorable and classic wedding reception with food for any palette and breath-taking views of the Nation's capitol, look no further than Sequoia. Every last detail of this venue helps to create the most timeless location for the tasteful bride.
What a beautiful venue! Towering walls of glass overlooking the the DC Waterfront. And you can get your cake from Watergate Pastry right in the neighborhood!
