    Third time is the charm! (Hang in there 2020 brides!)

    I have a rather unique experience, as my wedding was rescheduled three times. First, my fiance was in a very serious bicycle accident riding into work three weeks before our September 2019 wedding at the Alexandrian. We had been planning this event for over a year from across the country and we were both devastated to postpone. The team at the Alexandrian was very compassionate and caring. With guidance from his medical team, we were able to reschedule for April 2020. Alas, COVID-19 had other plans in store for us and we postponed again. After serious consideration, we stuck with our most recent rescheduled date in September 2020. I am glad we did! It was absolutely wonderful! We were able to have the ceremony and reception outside in the stunning courtyard.
    There were great safety procedures in place for guests and staff. Clearly marked signage for social distancing and numerous hand sanitizer stations. We did have a smaller guest list, but with tables being further apart it was the right size for a safe gathering (54 including the bride and groom). The catering staff members were just fantastic! All catering staff wore their masks properly (which was very much appreciated). The main reason we had our wedding in Northern VA rather than Southern Cal (where we live) is so my grandmother could attend. I was unsure if she would be able to attend, given she is part of a more vulnerable population. However, She is a bit of a spitfire and insisted on coming. Another reason I am so thankful the staff at the Alexandrian took such care of providing the safest environment, even in these uncertain times.
    As many other reviews have mentioned, there were some staff changes at the Alexandrian, and I did work with several coordinators for my wedding. To be transparent, there had been some communication/billing issues early in the process. However, Ashley, the new Catering Sales Manager, is truly a professional. She is building a team of hospitality staff that will truly set the Alexandrian apart. I will also say that any wedding issue large or small, Ashley solved or helped me solve quickly. All in all, I am glad we stuck with the Alexandrian and they stuck with us!

    Perfect winter wedding in the heart of Old Town

    The Alexandrian was exactly what my husband and I were looking for for our December wedding. We had our first date and got engaged on King Street, so it was only appropriate that we got married on King Street in the heart of the city where our story began! The location of the hotel is so convenient with easy access to the airport, restaurants, shopping, and things to do for our out of town guests. We also loved having everything in one building - it made planning all the logistics incredibly easy as the bridal party all got ready in suites, we had our ceremony and reception in the ballroom, were able to utilize the courtyard for our cocktail hour and for guests to get some fresh air during the reception, we even used the hotel lobby for our first look pictures in front of the fireplace.

    We did have a day of coordinator who was essential in handling all the day of details and coordinating with the hotel catering manager to ensure all of our decor was set up for both the ceremony and reception. She was also essential in keeping us on scheduled and communicating with all our other vendors, including the hotel staff, to make sure all the details of our day were executed perfectly.

    Ashley, the catering manager, was absolutely amazing in helping us plan our big day and iron out all the details. She was new to her position when we started working with her, however it was clear she knows her stuff and was willing to go out of her way to help us plan our perfect day! The catering team the day of was absolutely amazing, they made sure my husband and I were well fed and always had a drink in hand. We also heard from our guests that all the bartenders and wait staff were incredible.

    I will say that we did have some issues with the front desk and the reservation team. For example, my in laws had booked a suite for the weekend at least 8 months in advance and the reservation got lost. We also had a few miscommunications when trying to update our room block and change around the dates of reservations that were ultimately resolved but were frustrating to work through.

    Overall, we are SO glad we had our wedding at the Alexandrian. The hotel fits my husband's and my style and our story so perfectly - I can’t even imagine us having our wedding anywhere else.
