We wanted to have an indoor/outdoor feel, in the DC area, that could accommodate 150 people or so -- and that would have great options even if it rained. Woodend couldn't have been more perfect. We ... Read more had a beautiful wedding, with no rain, and we couldn't be happier with choosing Woodend.

Beautiful Brunch Wedding
Beatriz and everyone at Woodend were amazing to work with for our daytime Brunch wedding. The value of this venue is amazing, as the tent is included. We had amazing weather, but the rain plan at ... Read more Woodend is also beautiful and was a big part of why we chose them. They are less strict with live music than some other venues we toured, as well. They were flexible with our desire to do a less-traditional format and worked hard to facilitate all of the small details that really made our wedding special and beautiful. Beatriz was always responsive to email and we're so glad we held our wedding here!

An amazing, beautiful place
Woodend was the only wedding venue that we looked at; I was pretty much sold based on what I found online, but touring the gorgeous mansion and grounds solidified that Woodend was the perfect venue ... Read more for us. We wanted an outdoor venue surrounded by nature, but with the option to move the party indoors if the weather wasn't ideal. The Hemlock Grove looked like the perfect spot for an outdoor, nature-inspired ceremony, and mansion and tent seemed like the ideal place for a Sunday-morning brunch reception. But here's the thing: It ended up raining pretty much all day on our wedding day. But it didn't really matter one bit. Woodend was still the perfect venue for our wedding. Even though our ceremony had to be relocated under the tent, and our cocktail hour was moved into the mansion, it was still just a lovey, beautiful place to get married. Our guests raved about the setting (the beautiful trees in the background of everything), the ceremony (with the romantic sound of rain pattering on the tent), the adorable children in raincoats on a hike who made a brief appearance in the background of the ceremony (unexpected, but adorable) - everything! We're also happy that our venue fee supported the Audubon Naturalist Society - definitely a "win" for any couple interested in hosting a more eco-friendly event. A special thank you for Beatriz for helping us through the easy process of booking and hosting our event. She allowed a few of our vendors to arrive at the venue a little early to set up (really appreciated), and was very kind and accommodating through the whole process. We're so glad we found Woodend, and we're excited to visit this special place in the future!
