We used the Sherwood Community Center's Full Performance Space for my daughter's wedding. We had 19 tables with a band, 2 buffet lines, photo booth, and a large dance floor. Everyone loved the space! The staff was easy to work with. I would absolutely use this venue again.

We absolutely loved having both our ceremony and reception at the Old Town Hall. The staff was helpful and flexible with our setup, ceremony, and reception. The venue is beautiful and offers a cozy and personal space for a wedding. Everyone who attended loved the library where the ceremony took place and the reception space. I would highly recommend this venue for any event, but especially for a smaller wedding.

We absolutely loved the Old Town Hall. We picked it because of the look of the building and for affordability. It is also one of few venues that allow you to bring in your own caterer which was huge to us because we were on a budget. Brianne and Kaveh from the parks and recs center was always speedy with replying to our emails. They answered all of our questions for us with professionalism and clarity. They even had an employee measure the bookshelves up front because we wanted to put up drapery so the books wouldn't distract from our photos. We used the two pedestal columns that they have onsite (it isn't listed in the brochure so ask for it) free of charge. A huge plus is that they have all the tables and chairs onsite (over 200 chairs) so you can have the ceremony set up upstairs and have enough chairs downstairs for the reception area to be set up. The upstairs is a bit tight so I don't recommend having more than 7 people in your bridal parties. We had 7 on each side excluding ourselves and our officiant. The AC also wasn't working that day but once we got the windows open it was fine! We also had two friends play live music (two guitars) during the ceremony and they had no problem getting set up upstairs. They are extremely flexible with the layout of the downstairs reception area. The floorplans they display on their site are simply suggestions. We had to adjust after realizing we invited too many people! Although the construction wasn't finished when our wedding took place, I'm sure that will be a great addition to any future weddings. We also rented a few tablecloths directly from the Town Hall to cover the round tables we used to hold our beer, cake, and gifts. Notes: no open flames, glitter, sparklers or bubbles. We exited under a tunnel of our guests arms instead. Loved everything about this venue!!

Old Town Hall was the perfect venue and Brianne Baglini and her team were great! Very prompt, professional, flexible and a pleasure to work with. The venue was the perfect setting for an intimate wedding with family and friends. It's traditional design, yet contemporary look (we basically got married in a library!) was the perfect combination! It was a great venue at an affordable price. The day of our wedding a pipe had burst and there was no water...when I arrived, about an hour later than expected, I was informed of the situation at that they were already working on it. Everything was taken care of in plenty of time for the ceremony/when guests arrived and the day went off smoothly.

We rented the Historic Blenheim which was a perfect small location where we had our ceremony and reception. We had overall 65 guests and had an amazing affordable experience. Kaveh did an awesome job of answering all our questions. I was worried about the layout but Kaveh used a program to layout the exact floor plan so I could see the space and workout exactly how I wanted everything. The price was just right. We purchased the setup and breakdown which saved us time for decorating. I recommend this facility and the awesome customer service provided by Kaveh and the lady (I wish I remember her name that helped with the setup and breakdown) she was helpful as well. Thank you!! Our day was more amazing because of your help :)

The Old Town Hall is beautiful - you don't have to over decorate, because it is already such beautiful venue. We were able to have both our ceremony and reception at the same spot. The staff was incredibly responsive and helpful, and very flexible. We were able to choose our food vendor, and went with a food truck. They had not had a food truck there before, but helped to make it work perfectly. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue.

I work mostly with Brianne, who was wonderful in helping us plan our wedding. They were great in responding to questions and processing payments. We used the upstairs for our ceremony and downstairs for the reception. The venue is beautiful! I would recommend this place for a wedding smaller than 100 people.

I worked with Brianne at the Fairfax City Parks office and she was absolutely WONDERFUL!!! I can not say enough good things about working with her and it took so much stress off me knowing that she had everything handled. She helped to coordinate drop off times, arranging the tables, dj, photobooth, etc multiple times up to the wedding, and just giving ideas on what to do and where to do things as I didn't know. One of the best things about this location is that you can bring any vendor you want and do not have to go off a list that the location has for you. This allows you to make your wedding your own which my husband and I really wanted. They are also an amazing value compared to other locations in the area. This place does book up fast so be sure to get it as soon as you know you want the Old Town Hall.

Old Town Hall was the perfect venue for our wedding reception. We only utilized the downstairs, but it worked perfectly for our ninety guests, including a buffet on the large cabinet table and room for a dance floor. Brianne and Kaveh were very responsive and helpful in fitting all of our needs into the space. I would definitely recommend to any other brides looking for a historic venue to host family and friends on their special day!
