Recently, my clients were married at the Woodlands at Algonkian and I am so happy that they selected this venue. Maren and the rest of the staff were extremely professional, accommodating and a joy to work with. The Catering team was amazing as well and the food was incredible and exceeded our expectations. The venue is beautiful and they were well prepared and took the proper precautions to protect my clients and their guests from Covid-19. In a time of a pandemic, it was a relief to work with a venue team that understand our concerns and communicated with us consistently to ensure that everything was addressed and that any pressing questions were answered before the Wedding Day. As an Event Planner, it is imperative
to partner with a venue that is experienced, professional and that puts the client's needs first and the Woodlands did all of that and more. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone planning on getting married in the DC Area.

The Woodlands checked all of our boxes for a reception venue: 1. Convenient location that was reasonably priced 2. Beautiful outdoor/indoor setting 3. Function space to comfortably accommodate our guests.
Right from the start, Maren Roman and her team were wonderful. She was very responsive to questions. When COVID became an issue, Maren communicated changes to regarding onsite tasting (had to be curbside pickup), limitations to guest capacity (50 %) and onsite safety and santizing procedures in a timely manner. The facility was updated with new neutral paint, new dance floor, and updated bride room in Spring/Summer 2020. Beautiful! The outdoor firepit was perfect to have on for our Fall wedding. The fireplace inside is part of a floor to ceiling stone wall as you enter the ballroom. Gorgeous and cozy in October! The whole staff worked really hard to make sure everything went well. A big thanks to all!

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!
