About Woodlawn Estate & Frank Lloyd Wright's Pope-Leighey House

Will you tie the knot at Woodlawn?

The Woodlawn Estate & Frank Lloyd Wright’s Pope-Leighey House is a wedding venue located in Alexandria, Virginia. This venue is comprised of two separate houses that couples can exchange their vows in. These homes both feature a rich and fascinating history. The Woodlawn was a gift that George Washington gave to his step-granddaughter and nephew. This lovely estate was actually their wedding present. Years later, this estate was once again carefully restored to its Colonial glory. The Pope-Leighey House was built by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1940. While it originally was built to provide the middle-class with affordable housing, it now serves as a unique setting for ceremonies and receptions. While both homes may feature contrasting architectural and historical styles, they provide a charming setting for you to exchange your vows and begin your new life as a married couple in.

Couples can invite up to 350 guests to join them for their wedding. These spaces offer both indoor, covered outdoor, and uncovered outdoor options that you can choose from. Many of these outdoor areas include fountain gardens and scenic views that provide a relaxing setting for you and your guests. You are also welcome to incorporate the brand new event tent, which can accommodate 250-350 guests, into your ceremony or reception.

Woodlawn was the PERFECT place for our dream wedding. When we saw the venue online we loved it, and when we saw it in person we knew we had to have it! We had both our ceremony and reception at Woodlawn and it was absolutely breathtaking. You can have your ceremony anywhere on the outside property but the backdrop of the house is amazing. The cocktail hour space is so romantic and the reception tent doesn't even compare to other reception tents. Kathleen and her staff did a wonderful job guiding us through the planning process and our wedding day. We had a rain plan in place that we were happy with but luckily did not have to use. I would absolutely recommend getting married at this amazing venue!

This venue was gorgeous and really was a fairy tale setting for our perfect day. I must say that Rouge Catering did an unbelievable job making our wedding day perfect. The food was not only fabulous but the customer service and going above and beyond really set them apart. We would recommend this company to anyone looking to have an amazing wedding!

Oh my goodness! What a beautiful spot! Being a former art history and photography teacher, I am in love with the thought of any wedding in such an historical spot with incredible architecture! Woodlawn is lovely and a must visit for your wedding venue!
