  • Meadowlark is a beautiful location and the team there is great! It rained during our ceremony and they moved it inside quickly and smoothly - our guests were amazed at how quick and efficient they were! With all the greenery and flowers, it didn't require a lot of extra decorations, which was amazing!

  • We loved having our wedding at Meadowlark and received countless compliments from our guests. In addition, the team was super responsive to our requests and flexible on timing. Although it's a bit expensive, that's what you get in the DC area. Our only complaints are that the dance floor is a bit small and it did get hot inside the atrium (Granted, our wedding was on an extremely hot and humid day).

  • I was ser on booking the Atrium as our wedding venue from the moment I saw it and I'm so happy we did. They staff, both space and catering, made everything so easy so that we really didn't have anything to worry about at all. The only hiccup that happened was I swapped out a case of red wine for a case of sauvignon blanc, and apparently the case was accidentally dropped. When the catering captain found out though that that was the specific wine I had requested, she sent someone out to an ABC store to get some just for me! We constantly had food and drinks in our hands the whole night, and it was so nice to be able to go outside throughout the reception too! Our wedding was in early May, very humid and gross inside, so having the terrace outside for our guests to breathe and get some air was invaluable. We had 130 guests at our wedding and while the space can fit more, it's hard to imagine it being comfortable. We also had a very active party with dancing and the dance floor was actuall...

  • The Atrium was a beautiful venue for our wedding. It's an event venue so they are well-versed in what they are doing. You save a lot of money on decorating because there are so many beautiful plants and trees both inside and outside that you don't need to bring in more. The only hiccup the whole night was that we had planned on doing a sparkler send off at the end of the night, and that was explained at the walk-through. We showed up with our sparklers on the day of the wedding and we were told it wasn't allowed. So, apart from eating the cost of the sparklers, everything was perfect.

  • I can’t say enough about how amazing Meadowlark gardens was to work with! Great Blue Heron is the on-site catering company and they offered so many options and lots of flexibility. The food was amazing, the venue was GORGEOUS, we couldn’t be happier. Everything was perfect!!!

  • This venue is so beautiful to begin with. My son's wedding was at night and the setting was so elegant. The staff was outstanding and the food from their caterer was wonderful. It rained that day so we had to move the wedding indoors. They set it up without any issues.

  • It was the perfect place for us. They are super responsive, flexible and just down right amazing. the grounds are gorgeous and I can't believe that I've lived in Virginia for 20 years of my life and didn't know they existed. If they're open for a day you're good with, don't hesitate with booking them. Their caterer is delicious (We didn't get to eat much, but our guests couldn't stop telling us how delicious it was) and you really don't need a day of person when working with them. they are just awesome ^_^

  • The Atrium at Meadowlark was the only venue we saw. We came there on a spring day (about 1 year before our actual wedding) when it was pouring rain outside. Despite rain the place was so beautiful that my fiancé and I looked at each other and almost instantly decided that this was it. The atrium itself is so beautiful with flowers, trees and streams making it look like a secret garden. There is a ton of natural light. One of the things that really appealed to us about this place is that we wanted to have our wedding outside, but if that was compromised by weather we could still have it in a beautiful indoor space. The atrium is perfect for that. In addition, the surrounding outdoor gardens are so beautiful with amazing photo and video opportunities! Luckily, we had a perfect day without any rain. The venue really made our day feel magical and we highly recommend it!

  • My daughter interested to have her wedding in a garden . The atrium at Meadolark Botinical gardens is so beautiful and memorable for wedding ceremony and reception . Wayne as a manager and all executive staff were responsive , helpful , kind and cooperative . Our guests could step outside and enjoy the whole garden during the cocktail hour . I highly recommend this venue to everyone who wants nature and elegance together .

  • We had my daughter's winter wedding (180 guests) at the Atrium and used the in-house caterer Great Blue Heron. There is a winter discount! The venue is open everyday until 2:30 so we had plenty of opportunities to go over to scout, measure, take photos for planning and that really helped. You work separately and together with the Atrium staff and the GBH staff. They were all very responsive and nice to work with. This place makes for a magical looking winter wedding. All the greenery and white poinsettias created a lush environment so any additional flowers would just be a waste. White lights in the trees inside and outside. Our guests had free access to the Winter Walk of Lights and got a huge kick out of taking a stroll during the reception. I would strongly advise to use GBH - they know what they are doing in this space. We heard all night and after that guests had never had such great food at a wedding. Brian is the head chef but I think runs everything and we had a number of conve... Read more

  • I worked mostly with Ilka to plan my event. Ilka was amazing, super responsive, and super flexible. I loved working with her. The only issues I had was that when you go with Meadowlark you have to go with their in house bar. You're pushed to use them for catering as well, but I had some trouble with that. I live out of state and was trying to plan from afar, and the catering staff only does tastings twice a month on Wednesdays. Not super feasible for me, and it was difficult to set up a tasting at another time. If I had gone with them for catering, the alcohol package would have been cheaper, but I found the in house caterers to be difficult to get in touch with and not super flexible in terms of tastings. That being said, the venue was absolutely stunning and I received many compliments on how beautiful everything was. Ilka was fantastic at the walkthrough and the night went down without a hitch.

  • One of the prettiest wedding venues in Northern Virginia to hold a wedding. Although expensive, the environment, and food and drink are top notch. We chose the buffet option which worked well with a crowd of 100 and the food was plentiful. Guests moved through the buffet line effortlessly. Atrium staff is top notch; Great Blue Heron catering/wait staff is spotty-some are very good, others could use additional training.

  • From the time we toured the Atrium to the wedding day itself, we were impressed because of the staff, experience, and the beauty of the venue itself! Communication was a little confusing because of multiple people sharing the same account, however everyone we worked with was very nice. They were organized, understanding and expecting of questions we had, from start to finish! Thank you Meadowlark for giving us the wedding of our dreams!

  • The Atrium at Meadowlark has a gorgeous reception hall including glass walls, trees, and a stream going through it, and the outdoors ceremony area is also beautiful with a great view of the gardens. The Atrium also lets you do engagement and wedding photos in their lovely gardens. We were able to have an outdoors ceremony for our wedding, but they do have a very good backup plan in the event of inclement weather. They are flexible in that they let you bring in an outside caterer (though we went with their own Great Blue Heron Catering, which was awesome). They only host one event a day there, which is great - they are flexible with when you show up the day-of (e.g. morning prep for the ladies), and all their attention is on your event. However, this also means that you may end up having your rehearsal that same day or off-site (you may not be able to do a rehearsal the evening before if there is an event, especially for weekend weddings). We did our rehearsal that same morning, and ... Read more
