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

Will you tie the knot at Woodlawn?

Woodlawn Estate and Frank Lloyd Wright's Pope-Leighey House offers a variety of outdoor locations with beautiful gardens and gorgeous views. Our grounds can accommodate groups of up to 300 for your wedding ceremony and reception. 

In 1799, George Washington gave Woodlawn to his step-grand-daughter, Eleanor "Nelly" Custis and his nephew, Lawrence Lewis, as a wedding present. Tradition credits Nelly with introducing the lace veil and white dress into wedding fashion. Throughout Nelly's lifetime and into the twentieth century, Woodlawn was renowned for the gracious hospitality of its hosts and the beauty of its historic and pastoral setting. We invite you to continue this tradition by holding your own event at this beautiful estate.

Venue Tours are conducted by appointment only. For more information on catered event rentals, email woodlawn@rougecatering.com or 202-524-6801. Catered event rental rates may vary depending on specific aspects of your event.

Using Woodlawn Plantation and Pope-Leighey House for my daughter's wedding far surpassed my expectations. From the first time I viewed the property until the last good-bye on the night of the wedding, everyone I encountered was professional, organized, and helpful. The venue is gorgeous and spacious, allowing plenty of room for guests to move throughout the property. As an extra bonus, the crepe myrtles were in full, glorious bloom, creating a lush canopy for the wedding ceremony. The tent is large and beautiful, creating a romantic yet accessible space for dinner and dancing. This gorgeous venue is a perfect setting for both your wedding and reception and i will recommend to anyone I know.

Woodlawn is run by a trust so you don't have to deal with Woodlawn too much. Their dedicated caterer takes care of most of the wedding-related stuff for you.

The staff at Woodlawn when we did have to deal with them was wonderful. We received great reviews of the tours they held during our reception. The inside of the house was clean and everyone was very professional. We were very glad that we had our ceremony and reception there.

It rained A LOT days before our wedding. It was drizzling a bit the day of and the back stairs were wet and since they are marble, they were a bit slippery which I heard later was an issue for one of my guests but that comes w/ the venue I guess.

Overall, everything was beautiful and the service that was provided was excellent. Not to mention, we get to go back to our venue.
