    Superior professionalism and understanding. Most highly recommend.

    Due to COVID-19, our wedding had to get cancelled due to unavoidable circumstance. The manager Maren and Liz (manager at Great Blue Heron Catering) had showed exceptional understanding and went out of the way to resolve difficulties faced due to pandemic. Our family and friends greatly waited for the day to hold our wedding at Algonkian even prior to cancellation.. however the managers and staff had showed great professionalism which helped our couples' transition times through the pandemic. Most highly recommend this venue.

    A Perfect Day!!!

    My daughter got married last month at The Woodlands, and I cannot say enough about the wonderful experience we had! Maren was absolutely fantastic and supported us in planning every step of the way. In addition, she made sure that everything ran exactly according to plan on the “big day”. The kitchen staff was so professional and, not only was the food delicious, but the service of each course was seamless.. we never had to wait for any part of the meal to be served or removed. They also offered a coffee bar and optional ice cream bar, which many of our guests enjoyed, as well. It really was a perfect night, thanks to every single member of the staff that did their job to perfection! I have been to many weddings in my life, but this venue, without a doubt, was the best I have ever experienced. I would highly recommend The Woodlands to any couple who wants to have the kind of day they will remember forever!

  • Blooming Spaces Wedding Florists

    We have provided floral designs for several weddings at Algonkian. Whether the flowers are for an outdoor or indoor ceremony, the staff is always very courteous and helpful, making for an easy setup. I know they go out of their way to accommodate the Bride and her guests. I have heard that being able to stay in onsite cabins is a big plus for a Bride and her family. We will continue to refer Brides to Algonkian because all reports are very favorable. Kathleen Hoxie Blooming Spaces Event Flowers Sterling, Virginia
