We are so thrilled in our choice to have our wedding at The Woodlands. Maren and her team are absolutley incredible. Maren is friendly, helpful, organized and really went above and beyond to make our day perfect. She was accommodating and flexible with the unpredictable weather. Her team had chairs set up both inside and outside, so that we could wait until the last second to make a call about where they ceremony would be held based on the weather. She made sure I had everything I needed, and that the day of timeline we provided to her was honored. The bridal suite and entire venue was clean and set up exactly as we requested. There were ample places to take pictures both indoors and outdoors. We are so happy with our decision to have our wedding at The Woodlands!Sent on 06/24/2018

They were great!
Maren and Angela were so helpful and communicated so clearly about everything. They were very flexible and helped accommodate every part of my day. Both gave excellent advice and suggestions about how to make things run as smoothly as possible.Sent on 07/02/2019

All we ever wanted!
The Woodlands at Algonkian had it all. We had the ceremony outside next to a forest grove, cocktail hour on the patio and in the entry hall, then dinner inside a lovely ballroom with floor to ceiling windows next to the dance floor. It was comforting to know that if the weather had been bad, it would've been easy to simply move the ceremony inside the lovely ballroom.Sent on 06/15/2019
Most of our family and friends stayed in the Riverfront Cottages in Algonkian Regional Park, about one mile from the venue. This made it a wonderful weekend experience for us all.
The venue staff took care of the essentials for the wedding event, like setting up chairs for the ceremony and the tables/chairs for dinner. The venue coordinator, Maren Roman, was an excellent point person for the day! We didn't hire a coordinator/planner of our own, and it was fine because many details (tables, chairs, table cloths, alcohol, catering) were streamlined by the Woodlands venue team.
The Woodlands venue has an exclusive caterer, Great Blue Heron. Their food is great, and this made coordinating simple and easy.
We had our event on Friday, which was MUCH more affordable than a Saturday. Technically the rental period is 8 hours, for example we had 2pm to 11pm. But they only rent to one couple each day, so you can have access to the space earlier in the day if you need to setup.
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
