    Beautiful botanical feels!

    Looking for a wedding venue can be stressful, especially if you are someone like me who struggles with decorating and having a "vision" for the big day. When we walked into the Meadowlark, I knew this was the venue for us. The room is surrounded with a variety of plants and streams. There are string lights hanging over the dance floor. 80% of the decorations are handled for you just by booking the space. The staff, Bettina and Wayne, were so easy to work with (even through a pandemic!) and the catering is right on site. It makes the planning so much easier when you have a team like that behind you! I would 100% recommend this venue and wish I could have a party there every year :) Thank you Meadowlark!!

    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!
