Perfect wedding venue

The Sequoia is a perfect wedding venue for those looking to host a classic and beautiful evening. It was my dream venue to begin with and it exceeded expectations! The setup of the restaurant is great ... Read more and it has unbeatable views of the waterfront and Kennedy Center. Our guests were very impressed. Lila the Sequoia wedding coordinator was fabulous, she went out of her way on multiple occasions to make sure we were happy. She made sure our wedding dreams became realities. She is the best! The food was delicious, we had many guests compliment the food. The portions were bigger so no one was hungry. The dessert bar was amazing too! Highly recommend Sequoia!

Perfect Venue!

We had the best wedding at Sequoia! From the very beginning Lila, the wedding coordinator, was so sweet and accommodating... She made planning a breeze. We even had a last minute food change and she ... Read more handled it immediately. I can’t thank her enough for all her hard work and creativity. She even helped the florist set everything up and she even added more decor! The staff at Sequoia is so professional and made sure we had an amazing time. The venue itself is absolutely stunning and our guests got to utilize the outdoor space and enjoy all the views of the waterfront. I could not have asked for a better wedding venue!
