  • We chose The Woodlands as our venue because it had the perfect combination of an upscale venue with rustic accents. We got married outside in November, so it was important to have a venue that had a beautiful indoor alternative to an outdoor ceremony, if needed. (Thankfully, it wasn't needed for us!) All of the staff was very helpful in setting up for our wedding. The venue coordinator, Maren, was exceptional throughout the entire process. She went above and beyond to answer all of our questions throughout the wedding planning process and made sure the day of our wedding went off without a hitch. Working with her made our wedding so much less stressful, even more so when planning a wedding during COVID-19. We would highly recommend this venue simply to work with her. We also took advantage of the Riverfront Cottages. The process of reserving them and having our guests pay for them was effortless. It was so convenient (and fun!) to have the majority of our guests staying on prop... Read more

  • The Woodlands at Algonkian was the perfect venue for our wedding. From the moment we toured the venue, we knew it was the one. We loved the rustic yet modern look and every staff member we encountered was very nice and helpful. Jazmine was super attentive to all our needs leading up to the wedding day. DJ, the kitchen captain, was super welcoming and made sure we were well fed on our wedding day. Overall this venue exceeded our expectations. Everything was beautiful and perfect!

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • We chose the Woodlands as our venue because we love the park and wanted a beautiful autumnal vibe. We also liked that the venue includes a wedding coordinator, tables, chairs, on-site catering, and other services for a good price. Our wedding was absolutely stunning and we had such a wonderful time, all made possible by Maren and other Woodlands support staff. We wholeheartedly recommend the Woodlands and other Nova Parks venues!

  • The Woodlands checked all of our boxes for a reception venue: 1. Convenient location that was reasonably priced 2. Beautiful outdoor/indoor setting 3. Function space to comfortably accommodate our guests. Right from the start, Maren Roman and her team were wonderful. She was very responsive to questions. When COVID became an issue, Maren communicated changes regarding onsite tasting (had to be curbside pickup), limitations to guest capacity (50 %) and onsite safety and santizing procedures in a timely manner. The facility was updated with new neutral paint, new dance floor, and updated bride room in Spring/Summer 2020. Beautiful! The outdoor firepit was perfect to have on for our Fall wedding. The fireplace inside is part of a floor to ceiling stone wall as you enter the ballroom. Gorgeous and cozy in October! The whole staff worked really hard to make sure everything went well. A big thanks to all!

  • Recently, my clients were married at the Woodlands at Algonkian and I am so happy that they selected this venue. Maren and the rest of the staff were extremely professional, accommodating and a joy to work with. The Catering team was amazing as well and the food was incredible and exceeded our expectations. The venue is beautiful and they were well prepared and took the proper precautions to protect my clients and their guests from Covid-19. In a time of a pandemic, it was a relief to work with a venue team that understand our concerns and communicated with us consistently to ensure that everything was addressed and that any pressing questions were answered before the Wedding Day. As an Event Planner, it is imperative to partner with a venue that is experienced, professional and that puts the client's needs first and the Woodlands did all of that and more. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone planning on getting married in the DC Area.

  • We could not have experienced a more perfect day. Planning a wedding during COVID is no easy feat but the staff was amazing and a prayer answered, in so many ways. The food was amazing, staff was friendly, and accommodating to our needs from food allergies to COVID concerns.

  • 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!

  • I can not recommend this place enough! Maren was absolutely fantastic to work with and the venue itself was just beautiful! Everything from the pre-panning to the catering to the day itself was excellent. If there was a small mistake, Maren was there immediately to fix it herself! You could tell she wanted nothing else than to make sure myself and my husband were having the best possible experience! The venue itself is so beautiful and the atmosphere it provided made our wedding day extremely memorable. (Not to mention the price, compared to other venues in that area, is fantastic!) You will not be disappointed with this venue!

  • 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. 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 ... Read more

  • The folks at Woodlands were very professional, timely and communicative. Our wedding went very smoothly with them. The price of the package was very reasonable too. If you like having weddings outdoors in a wooded nature setting, this is one of the best places in the area. They work with a set catering service with an impressive set of menu items.

  • This was the first venue we saw, and though we toured others, we loved this one. It is absolutely beautiful, and includes so many great places for photos. The in-house catering is good, and the staff were very professional. We hit some snags due to to covid and overall circumstances outside everyone's control, but they worked with us as best they could to help with our changing plans. Even the week before, when weather dictated we had to re-plan pretty much the entire format of the event, they were super helpful in recommending how to shift things and still have the event we wanted.

    Thank you for choosing to host your special day here at The Woodlands! We enjoyed you and your family and friends and wish you all the best on your new journey together! Warm Regards, The Woodlands Team
