This was such a beautiful location! We had the perfect day to have a wedding outside. It was so beautiful with all the flowers and the greenery! The guests really enjoyed the ceremony location! It was ... Read more wonderful to have the ceremony and reception in one location. The reception was big and full of windows that was nice to see!! :) everything turned out really well. I think the only issues I had came down to the fact that they didn't post signs directing people like they said they would, they almost didn't want to golf cart me (the bride) down to the ceremony like they had said they would because "the cart is dirty", and although there were signs stating the areas were closed for an event and we were told they would keep people away, there were random people all over. They didn't interfere but it was a bit odd. But my guests had a great time, I had a great time, and I'm happy!

The Affordable Garden Wedding
I got my rose garden wedding without breaking the bank! Brookside Gardens was one of the only affordable places within reasonable driving distance of DC that matched my vision of an elegant, outdoor ... Read more all-in-one wedding and reception venue. The staff know how to run a wedding like clockwork - I think that's their main business, and they're very good at it. Planning and coordinating everything was a breeze with the help of their wedding guru Jennifer. On the day of everything magically came together with the help of Brookside's team. When I was left alone by the busy wedding party and family, nervously sitting by myself outside the hedges surrounding the aisle, the team members checked on me and gave me a thumbs up, which I remember and appreciate so, so much! The gardens are exquisite and the perfect background for photos. Our reception in the auditorium was lovely as well - all it took was a little uplighting and a dance floor to turn it into party central. Best of all - I can come back and visit any time I want to relive my wedding day. We love Brookside gardens, and we'll definitely be back next year to catch the blooms!

The team at Brookside Gardens did a phenomenal job helping us arrange our winter wedding. We got married in the atrium at the visitors' center, which was lovely -- big enough for 100 while still ... Read more feeling intimate. Brookside staff helped us create a beautiful night, with the option for all our guests to see their holiday Garden of Lights. The Brookside team worked well with our flower vendor and caterer, did a great job setting up tables and chairs, and were just so nice. It meant so much to us to be married in a beautiful public space (not a hotel, not an elite club) where we had the freedom to be ourselves, create new traditions and enjoy the outdoors.
