  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Book this venue for your wedding and I promise you won't be disappointed! Maren and her team were a pleasure to work with from our first meeting through our wedding day. They made the process so easy and accommodating, and the venue was exactly what we wanted. Lots of greenery and nature, tall trees, a high ceiling spacious reception area and so much more. The food, the service, the views, everything was incredible. We had all types of weather on our wedding day from sun, to rain, wind, and even hail just moments before our ceremony. Maren and her team did everything they could to make our wedding go on and it did! That evening we had the most beautiful sunset and tons of deer came into the background of our photos. I can't recommend this place enough, I am so glad we got married here!

  • We got married in April 2019 and absolutely loved this venue. The outdoor setting was perfect and the main reception room was the perfect spot for our reception. Throughout the process their event coordinator Maren was super helpful and always very responsive to my many questions. On the day of the wedding she was there making sure everything went smoothly.

  • 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!

  • Our post-wedding party was attended by 100 guests from as far away as western Canada. We wanted a playful but elegant event with superb food and great ambience. We got it! Our families stayed in the cottages and got to hang out together. We had a welcome barbecue lunch near the waterpark catered by The Woodlands and everyone had a blast. Chef Dennis worked with us on an upscale menu for the evening event at a reasonable cost. Ashley, Liz, and Isabella made it all happen just the way we wanted it to. The team were very flexible and eager to do whatever they could to make the weekend perfect. We included kids in the celebration and had games outside the event hall - and of course the adults joined in! We didn't want a cake and The Woodlands put together a totally fun sundae bar. The result: a warm, fun, event that allowed our family and friends to get to know each other while enjoying great food and lots of play time. If you're looking for a lovely, elegant, but "un-stuffy" at... Read more

  • I'm so glad we decided to use the Woodlands at Algonkian for our wedding reception! They came highly recommended by a family friend who held a wedding there a few years ago and after working with them, I can see why. The venue is beautiful, even during the typically bleak Nova winter and the staff was just lovely. They catered to our every question and concern with the utmost professionalism, so we (me, my husband, and our families) didn't need to worry about a thing. Thank you Woodlands, for making our special day so magical!

  • We had our wedding at the Woodlands on the 9th of July with just less than 60 guests. Anna is not working anymore at the Algonkian, the new person is Ashley and she is great very professional and helpful. Everything went great with all of our vendors. The venue is perfect for a wedding : we had our ceremony outside in a beautiful setting just in front of the reception space. The guests just need to walk a few steps inside for the cocktail hour and then the reception. The bridal suite is also great to get ready with big mirrors, sinks, private bathroom. Just take a few steps outside to take some great pictures next to the golf course with big trees and even some deers if you are lucky. The dancefloor is great too! We dropped of the decoration in the bridal suite the evening before and when we arrived on the morning for the hair and makeup preparation, everything was already set up perfectly on the tables. When the day-of coordinator noticed that the cake was not decorated with fl... Read more

  • Our daughter was married at the Woodlands on Memorial Day weekend on Sunday. The wedding day was absolutely wonderful! We were very fortunate to have the ceremony outside in the lovely setting they provide. Bianca was our wedding captain for the day and she did a wonderful job keeping everything running smoothly. We had the cocktail and reception inside the very nice area . The food was very good and enjoyed by all. We would highly recommend for anyone to have their wedding at the Woodlands. The wedding parties and familes stayed in the park cottages, the were quite nice and very convenient to stay in.

  • We couldn’t be happier with how our wedding day went at Woodlands. The venue was set up beautifully for our ceremony (held indoors due to unpredictable March weather), and the transitions between the ceremony, to cocktail hour, to dinner, went really well. The staff were always responsive to our questions via email and accommodated our requests for craft beer and speciality drinks. The pictures from our wedding were beautiful, which in large part is due to the beauty of Algonkian Parkand the setup of the interior. Only a couple of downsides: after our ceremony, my wife and I did not have food and drinks waiting for us in the bridal suite as was promised, but food/drink was given to us once we asked. The other downside is that the cocktail hour lines were too long according to our guests. Woodlands said they can set up a 2nd bar but it can’t be full-service. Other than that, we couldn’t recommend Woodlands hard enough. The venue and catering staff were amazing overall and they... Read more

  • When my husband and I decided to get married in NOVA, we were worried we wouldn't be able to have the connection to nature and natural elements we wanted to incorporate. Not only is the venue itself gorgeous, but the entire park is covered with wildlife and beauty. With a February wedding, I was worried the landscape wouldn't be as vibrant for photos, but there was still plenty of greenery around. Our family and guests also loved staying at the cabins on the property, some even stayed over a week to make it a vacation. Also, I cant rave about the staff enough! They were so great and communicative throughout the entire process. They made me feel like I was their only bride. I was worried about not having a wedding coordinator of my own for the day of, but the staff took care of everything. We dropped off our decorations the day prior and when we showed up for the big day everything looked perfect!
