Perfect wedding venue
The Sequoia is a perfect wedding venue for those looking to host a classic and beautiful evening. It was my dream venue to begin with and it exceeded expectations! The setup of the restaurant is great and it has unbeatable views of the waterfront and Kennedy Center. Our guests were very impressed.Sent on 04/11/2019
Lila the Sequoia wedding coordinator was fabulous, she went out of her way on multiple occasions to make sure we were happy. She made sure our wedding dreams became realities. She is the best!
The food was delicious, we had many guests compliment the food. The portions were bigger so no one was hungry. The dessert bar was amazing too!
Highly recommend Sequoia!

We had the best wedding at Sequoia! From the very beginning Lila, the wedding coordinator, was so sweet and accommodating ... she made planning a breeze. We even had a last minute food change and she handled it immediately. I can’t thank her enough for all her hard work and creativity. She even helped the florist set everything up and she even added more decor! The staff at Sequoia is so professional and made sure we had an amazing time. The venue itself is absolutely stunning and our guests got to utilize the outdoor space and enjoy all the views of the waterfront. I could not have asked for a better wedding venue!Sent on 04/15/2019

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!Sent on 12/04/2018
