Meadowlark Wedding Gazebos
Settled within Meadowlark Botanical Gardens are three gazebos that serve as perfect locations for a private and intimate wedding ceremony. Each wedding gazebo accommodates varying capacities and are located throughout the garden. Maximum capacities range between 50 to 120 standing guests in and around the gazebos. The Lake Caroline Gazebo is the most commonly used gazebo for wedding ceremonies as it is located at the end of a dock in the middle of Lake Caroline. With a 360 degree view of the gardens, this gazebo is perfect for an outdoor ceremony.
Our newest pavilion is located on one of Meadowlark’s beautiful open fields just before you enter the garden. Available for reservations seven days a week, this is the perfect location for a casual celebration or gathering. The Lilac Pavilion can accommodate up to 80 seated guests underneath the pavilion roof, and 200+ guests can be seated in the open field (additional tenting may be required and subject to rental fee.)
Korean Bell Garden
The Korean Bell Garden of Meadowlark Botanical Gardens is a beautiful backdrop for any wedding or private event. Created via a joint effort between NOVA Parks and the Korean American Cultural Committee (KACC), this great endeavor began with a proposal in 2007. Since then, the Garden continued to take shape, adding key elements and forever changing the landscape on an otherwise unused hill.
The Atrium is now open during normal office hours. Tours are by appointment only.
The Atrium was the perfect venue for our Engagement Party event.
The Atrium was the perfect venue for our Engagement Party event. The space was light, bright, and very comfortable despite cooler temperatures. We had a great area to distance socially within our covid constraints, and all our vendors were able to manage well within the space. Wayne and Bettina made utilizing the venue easy and hassle-free. We'd highly recommend it's use.

The perfect garden tea party wedding venue.

We have nothing but amazing things to say about the Atrium Meadowlark. What a perfect venue! They made everything seamless from start to finish. Our guests are still raving about the food -- thanks to GBH, the on-site caterer. We had the most beautiful weather imaginable on our big day. The outdoor ceremony was perfect, and the indoor reception went wonderfully. The grounds make for the most amazing photos, and to top it all off, the staff are incredibly caring, responsive, and professional. We felt wonderfully cared for every step of the way, and they dealt with the COVID-related nuances better than we could have imagined. Hats off to Bettina, Wayne, and the whole Atrium crew -- they made our special day the best!

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.

We had our ceremony and reception at the Atrium in February and it was beautiful!
The transition between the 2 events was quick and flawless. They have a bridal "lilac room" which was helpful and served as a quiet place to touch down. The bathrooms are able to accommodate multiple guests and, most importantly, clean. They clearly do this all of the time, total pros, so trust them. They are also very responsive via email.

Absolutely beautiful venue!
Absolutely beautiful venue! The staff was nice and responsive, the atrium is well-maintained and the in-house catering is absolutely phenomenal. The outdoor pictures spots are perfect and the indoor reception atmosphere is formal, romantic and still enough space to have fun. We had 175 guests. It was cozy but still enough space to dance.

Meadowlark was even better than I imagined!
We scheduled our wedding to take advantage of their holiday decorations and Walk of Lights, and I am so glad we did. The extra holiday decor in the Atrium was beautiful, and our guests really enjoyed taking a break to view the Walk of Lights. Day-of went incredibly smoothly, as did planning prior to our event. Wayne the Atrium manager and Kelli the new catering manager were wonderful and really easy to work with.
