An elegant wedding and event space in Algonkian Regional Park
Hold your wedding at The Woodlands, an elegant event space in the picturesque forests of Algonkian Regional Park in Sterling, Virginia. The primary room, which holds up to 200 guests, features high ceilings, a striking stone fireplace, and a dance floor framed by windows that overlook the wooded golf course. Accommodate your guests in well-appointed riverfront cottages along the Potomac River. Great Blue Heron provides full on-site catering for any event at The Woodlands.
With plenty of seating to accommodate all your guests and family, the Woodland’s outdoor pergola is a perfect way to hold both your wedding and reception at the venue, with a beautiful wooded backdrop.
Beautiful Venue, Utmost Professionalism
I'm so glad we decided to use the Woodlands at Algonkian for our wedding reception! They came highly recommended by a family friend who held a wedding there a few years ago and after working with them, I can see why. The venue is beautiful, even during the typically bleak Nova winter and the staff was just lovely. They catered to our every question and concern with the utmost professionalism, so we (me, my husband, and our families) didn't need to worry about a thing. Thank you Woodlands, for making our special day so magical!

Perfect Setting, Beautiful Wedding
We had our wedding at the Woodlands on the 9th of July with just less than 60 guests. Anna is not working anymore at the Algonkian, the new person is Ashley and she is great very professional and helpful. Everything went great with all of our vendors.
The venue is perfect for a wedding : we had our ceremony outside in a beautiful setting just in front of the reception space. The guests just need to walk a few steps inside for the cocktail hour and then the reception. The bridal suite is also great to get ready with big mirrors, sinks, private bathroom. Just take a few steps outside to take some great pictures next to the golf course with big trees and even some deers if you are lucky. The dancefloor is great too!
We dropped of the decoration in the bridal suite the evening before and when we arrived on the morning for the hair and makeup preparation, everything was already set up perfectly on the tables. When the day-of coordinator noticed that the cake was not decorated with flowers, she didn't know but asked me right away and then promptly called the florist who had just left to come back. When the steamer broke and my bridesmaid couldn't finish to steam her dress, Ashley went out to buy a new one! We got back our security deposit two weeks after the event.
Most of our guests stayed at the nearby cottages and really enjoyed their stay, we also had a catered BBQ the next day at one of the camping shelter and it was a lot of fun. The water park was a big hit with the guests too.
I really recommend the Woodlands At Algonkian, make it a wedding weekend with the cottages!
