A garden fairytale of a wedding!
This is truly my favorite place, and the absolute most beautiful place for a wedding in the DMV area. Our reception was in the Atrium here in June, and by bringing the outdoors in, we did not have to add much decor. The team was phenomenal to work with, and helped me through the multiple date changes #coronabride, made a room layout for our 16 person bridal party and 100 guests, had the sweetest staff catering to us all day and night, and not to mention one of the best meals I've ever had. Our guests are still raving about the dinner here (from Great Blue Heron Catering)! Since this is part of the Nova Parks, the rates are very affordable compared to other venues in the area. If you are at all considering this venue, first check their availability (they are so popular - I did this before we were engaged!) and then book a tour. You will fall in love!Sent on 07/29/2021

We had the most amazing experience working with Wayne, Bettina, and the GBH catering team at the Atrium. The new covid restrictions limiting gatherings to 25 guests was announced literally one week before our wedding so we were scrambling to make so many last minute changes and they made everything so easy for us - we went from 65 to 22 guests (our original estimate in 2019 when we booked our date was 150 guests), buffet to plated dinner, stationary appetizers to passed hors d'oeuvres only, and full bar to only beer & wine. In addition to the superb service, the venue itself is absolutely gorgeous and unique. We also loved that our guests had access to the botanical gardens and the Winter Walk of Lights!Sent on 11/27/2020

The perfect garden tea party wedding venue
We have nothing but amazing things to say about the Atrium Meadowlark. What a perfect venue! They made everything seamless from start to finish. Our guests are still raving about the food -- thanks to GBH, the on-site caterer. We had the most beautiful weather imaginable on our big day. The outdoor ceremony was perfect, and the indoor reception went wonderfully. The grounds make for the most amazing photos, and to top it all off, the staff are incredibly caring, responsive, and professional. We felt wonderfully cared for every step of the way, and they dealt with the COVID-related nuances better than we could have imagined. Hats off to Bettina, Wayne, and the whole Atrium crew -- they made our special day the best!Sent on 10/16/2020
Great site! The staff is always on point and they're a pleasure to work with. The atrium is a sight to behold. You can't go wrong here!
The Atrium at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens is a powerful place for a wedding, no matter what the season is! Perfectly manicured landscape of the gardens served as a gorgeous background for bridal party photos while the atrium itself has provided a romantic atmosphere for a reception. The staff is highly professional and courteous - just a pleasure to work with. Special compliments to the caterer for outstanding meals!
