The Atrium at Meadowlark
A Glass-Walled Atrium Overlooking Meadowlark Botanical Gardens
Host your wedding or event amidst live plants and flowers in this beautiful glass-walled atrium nestled in the Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna, Virginia. The Atrium at Meadowlark features exposed brick walls, a glass-enclosed cathedral ceiling, and a large terrace overlooking the botanical gardens. This remarkable space will seat up to 230 guests, with standing room for 300. Take advantage of the gazebos, Bell Garden, and Lilac Pavilion for photography and other event options at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens. Great Blue Heron provides full on-site catering for any event at The Atrium.
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.
This was the perfect wedding venue
This was the perfect wedding venue for our wedding! The Atrium and botanical gardens are a beautiful facility for a wedding and the staff was so helpful from start to finish in planning and execution. They helped us with the wedding day agenda, seating chart, and were able toprovide a lot of the detail items needed for a wedding. They also made sure we were well taken care of day of and I could not have asked for more! We opted for the on site catering as well and many guests commented it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. HIGHLY recommend!!

So, So Beautiful
This is one seriously gorgeous and unique venue. With all the plants, the stream, and the twinkly lights, you cannot beat the ambiance. What's more - our wedding was during the Winter Walk of Lights, so everything was decorated for the holidays and our guests were able to step outside to enjoy the light displays and some hot cocoa. We were so pleased with this venue. The staff is very flexible and works closely with Great Blue Heron Catering. Highly recommend.

I loved my venue
We had our wedding the first weekend of their winter season, which meant that we received a 25% discount on venue fees, and had access to their winter walk of lights during the reception. The staff was wonderful to work and plan with. The Christmas decorations ended up working perfectly with our color scheme and made everything just a little more special. I can't recommend them highly enough. The service, quality and value were all top notch and I hope if you use this venue that you will have just as great of an experience. We also used their catering service (Great Blue Heron) which I have reviewed separately... but in a nutshell, the food was fantastic, the staff was professional, and the head chef made all of the small details count!
