    Perfect Spot for our Late Summer Wedding!

    Our experience with the Woodlands was amazing. Maren was so thorough and responsive in the planning leading up to our date, and very flexible with our last-minute changes. We had our ceremony off-site, but Maren was accommodating in opening up before we headed to our church rehearsal on Friday so we could drop decor early.

    The site itself is gorgeous, recent renovation work outside made the lawn great for cornhole. People were milling around near the firepits and outdoor bistro tables, PERFECT layout for cocktail hour.

    The reception hall glass walls overlooking the golf course, made a great backdrop for first dances as the sun set.

    Overall, we are very pleased with both the location and the service at the Woodlands! Highly recommend!

    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.

    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
