Imagine your reception amidst a breathtaking indoor garden, surrounded by the region’s most beautiful botanical landscapes at the Atrium at Meadowlark Gardens in Vienna. Enjoy your first dance overlooking a perfectly manicured golf course on the shores of the Potomac River at The Woodlands in Sterling. Smile for photos with your closest family and friends in a beautiful mansion surrounded by a nature sanctuary at Rust Manor House in Leesburg. Or, find yourself along the banks of the Occoquan River as you raise a glass at NOVA Parks' newest venue, the River View at Occoquan.
